Phillies take game 1 in the NLCS
Here are some “snarky” comments about stories I didn’t have the time to follow up on and funny photos I doubt I’ll ever use.
Accusations are flying that the ProElite fight between Kimbo Slice & Seth Petruzelli was fixed because of this comment by Petruzelli.
“The promoters kind of hinted to me and they gave me the money to stand and trade with him,” Petruzelli said on “The Monsters in Orlando” show. “They didn’t want me to take him down, let’s just put it that way. It was worth my while to try to stand up and punch with him.”
But another big story regarding this past Saturday’s “fight” is the claim that Slice’s entourage threatened Petruzelli’s wife.
A Petruzelli interview with Sam Caplan includes the following exchange:
Sam Caplan: Can you talk about the aftermath? That was a pretty crazy scene around the cage with Kimbo’s crew. At any point were you concerned for your safety?
Seth Petruzelli: Oh yeah, 100 percent. Afterwards, and I didn’t know it at the time, buy my wife had got threatened a few times. My corner had got threatened a few times. I had stuff thrown at me from the crowd. As soon as I had got done circling and screaming, the athletic commission told me I had to calm down because the crowd was getting crazy. So I calmed down and said listen, “You’ve got to get me out of here.” And I kind of started to get worried about my well-being at that point (laughs).
Sam Caplan: Did the threats against your wife and your corner come from Kimbo’s fans or his corner?
Seth Petruzelli: It was some of his posse that was around the cage. Not all of them were like that but there were a few that were talking some crap that I wasn’t very happy about.
Sam Caplan: (Laughs) Do you have any idea what they possibly could have been mad at you about aside from doing your job?
Seth Petruzelli: I have no idea. I heard this one kid, he kept saying “You cheated! You cheated! You cheated!” (Laughs) And I’m like, how the hell did I cheat!? I mean, what are you talking about!?

Mark Mangino to the Kansas student and fans: “Please quit quoting lines from the Waterboy during the games. I really hate Rob Scneider. I’d offer up an alternative Rob Scneider movie quote here but that would require having viewed a Rob Schneider movie.
In case you missed it. There a website dedicated to the hiring of Will Muschamp as the next head coach for the University of Tennessee.
In case you didn’t know…cause I sure as shit didn’t…but the boss of F1 racing is Bernie Ecclestone. His incredibly hot daughter Tamara posed for PETA’s “I would rather go naked than wear fur” campaign. I can’t remember the last time I saw someone wearing a fur coat, but I’m all for hot girls posing to protest them. Or protest anything, for that matter. More images here.
