Florida player celebrates victory over Georgia by choking his soulmate

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on November 5, 2008

Imagine coming off that rather huge & impressive victory over the Georgia Bulldogs. You’re ready to party by grabbing some sweet icky weed, jorts, a dead woman’s credit card & and a AK-47. However those party favors lost their appeal for cornerback Jacques Rickerson so instead he decides to pull a Latrell Sprewell and choke his girlfriend.

An arrest report stated Rickerson was at the woman’s home and became upset when she told him to leave. Police said he hit the woman on the side of her face and choked her around the throat. When she screamed for help, he pushed her neck further into the mattress of the bed and used a pillow to cover her face.

After he let her go, the woman told police she tried to get out of the room but he blocked the door. He also took her cell phone when she said she was going to call police.

Officers reported the woman had visible injuries to her arm, neck and upper chest.

Of course being a Gator mean this isn’t Rickerson’s first run in with the po-po. Around a year ago he plead guilty to possession of having the sweet icky weed on him.

Urban Meyer has actually kicked Rickerson off the team saying:

“Jacques Rickerson is no longer part of our team – that is not what our program is about.”

So Rickerson gets kicked, but the dude holding the AK and shooting in the air doesn’t? Stay Classy Florida!

I just find it funny that Meyer said he would only recruit the top 1% of kids who have character. Maybe this was a “misunderstanding” like the Joyner situation?

All college teams have to deal with these situations. I just find it funny that Meyer tries to present himself as some specialist elitist.

Don’t You Dare Bother Shawn Chacon When he’s Eating

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on June 26, 2008

So there he was just minding his own business and eating his dinner in the dining room before the game against the Texas Rangers. Shawn Chacon wasn’t bothering anyone but the general manager Ed Wade decided to make a critical mistake.

“I sat down to eat and Ed Wade came to me and very sternly said, ‘You need to come with me to the office,'” Chacon said. “I said, ‘For what?’ I said, ‘I don’t want to go to the office with you and Cooper.’ And I said, ‘You can tell me whatever you got to tell me right here.’ He’s like, ‘Oh, you want me to tell you right here?’ And I said, ‘Yeah.’ I’m not yelling. I’m calm.”

This is where things go downhill.

“He started yelling and cussing,” Chacon said of Wade, according to a story on the Chronicle’s Web site. “I’m sitting there and I said to him very calmly, ‘Ed, you need to stop yelling at me.’ Then I stood up and said, ‘You better stop yelling at me.’ I stood up. He continued and was basically yelling.”

Chacon claims that after Wade told him he needed to “look in the mirror,” it got worse.

“So at that point I lost my cool and I grabbed him by the neck and threw him to the ground. I jumped on top of him,” he said. “Words were exchanged.”

Shawn has been suspended indefinitely by the team. and Ed Wade must be a distant cousin of P.J. Carlesimo because that little grab was by the neck with shades of Latrell Spreewell.

I know when I have a full slab of ribs and some corn, I hate to be bothered. I once smacked a grown man in the mouth for interrupting me while I was enjoying my Coldstone Ice cream.

Lance Berkman, who said he did not see the incident, was one of the few players who agreed to talk about it.

“Obviously it’s something that nobody in here is thrilled that it happened,” he said. “But this is a sport of high emotion and sometimes things happen that organizations wish wouldn’t and that’s why there’s vehicles like suspending the players to deal with those situations.”

Hmmm maybe Chacon should tell the media he was eating a snickers bar or something and cash in on the endorsement, commercial, etc. You know he won’t be pitching again. First he blows, second beating up a GM is usually a no no.

Wade did confirm that Chacon’s agent called and requested a trade earlier this week but said “that has nothing to do with the events of today.”

Chacon is concerned that he might not pitch in the majors again. Gee…I wonder why.

“Maybe it shouldn’t have happened,” Chacon said. “But when you do those things and you’re yelling at somebody and you’re cussing you better know what type of person you’re dealing with. If there’s any regret, I just wish they had just let me alone. I wish they had left me alone.”

Chacon signed a $2 million, one-year contract with Houston in February after spending 2007 with Pittsburgh. He split time as a starter and a reliever there and was 5-4 with a 3.94 ERA and one save in 64 appearances with the Pirates.

When asked if he was concerned about his personality or character when Chacon was signed, Wade opted to discuss his play instead.

“I’d hoped he pitched better for us,” Wade said. “That’s the bottom line. We took him out of the rotation on Sunday basically on merit. He’d had 10 starts since late April, and the last three starts, four starts weren’t very good. So we hoped that he would help us in the bullpen, and unfortunately we’re at a point right now when we think it’s in our best interest to move forward.”

Why should he be disgruntled about being bumped for the rotation. He should have been grateful the Astros gave him a shot at the rotation in the first place because the Pirates wouldn’t keep him in their rotation. And if a team as bad as the Pirates were last year to not have he as a starter (despite the organization wise decision to give their youngsters over below average veterans) he should be fortunate to start in a contenders rotation, granted Houston has nothing behind Oswalt this year.

You don’t yell and cuss at a grown man, an employee no less. That’s just juvenile and very unprofessional. If Chacon’s version is accurate then Astro’s owners should discipline Wade. However, if your boss, the person who employs you and pays your salary (2 mil. no less) tells you they want to see you in their office, you DO NOT respond, “for what?” and “I don’t want to.” Say “Yes sir”, “Give me a minute”, or even “let me finish eating and I’ll be right there”. Say something, but saying “for what?” is just asking to get your butt chewed.

Ed McMahon & Latrell Sprewell Have Something in Common

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on June 6, 2008

It’s no secret that there seems to be a financial crisis in the country. Everyone has been affected. Pac Man Jones can’t afford too go to as many strip clubs these days. I’ve been cutting back on my diet Pepsi consumption.

Ed McMahon is in danger of losing his multi million-dollar Beverly Hills home to foreclosure. If you remember Latrell Sprewell recently lost his home due to foreclosure as well. Maybe they can become roommates and be the ultimate odd couple. Latrell can tell stupid jokes and Ed can say “YES” over and over.

As of Wednesday afternoon, McMahon’s Mediterranean-styled house was still in the process of foreclosure; the bank hasn’t taken it over yet and no trustee sale date has been set. McMahon and his wife, Pamela, are having “very fruitful discussions” with the lender to resolve the problem, spokesman Howard Bragman said Wednesday.

The former “Star Search” host has found himself in the same situation so many homeowners have recently, said Daren Blomquist, spokesman for RealtyTrac, which follows foreclosure filings. He found that McMahon has taken out several loans on the house over the past few years, including a $300,000 home equity line of credit the same day he took out the $4.8 million loan in November 2005.

“You’re using your house as a piggy bank because there’s so much equity — at least back in 2005 — so you’re able to take money out of it and use that for just spending in any way you see fit,” Blomquist said. “But the problem with that in the long term is that with the housing in this market, you don’t see it continue to go up in property value. Now, you see it going down in many areas … and you still have to pay your mortgage payments. You don’t have the option to take more cash out of the house.”

I recently read that he was awarded a settlement that exceeds the value of the home in question…and he can’t afford to pay the mortgage? What’s really going on here?

If it’s a gated community, I hope Publisher’s Clearinghouse can make it to his front door.

Hey, he *could* be a winner!

Seriously he was paid millions to laugh at Carson’s jokes, rep for Publisher’s Clearinghouse and several other companies. Where does the money go? And can’t these people (the rich) learn to pay cash upfront and purchase the entire “estate” at once. That way if something truly happens all they would need to worry about is making the tax payments.

Remember I still need “bail” money!!! Click here for details.

Alabama’s Chosen Basketball Son Latrell “Asphyxiation God” Sprewell

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on February 12, 2008

Latrell “Asphyxiation God” Sprewell attended and played for the University of Alabama 1990-1992 under Coach Wimp “Sexual Harassment” Sanderson. He was the 24th pick in the 1992 NBA draft by the Golden State Warriors.

Sprewell made an immediate impact, starting 69 of the 77 games he played in during his rookie season and averaging 15.4 points per game. His performance would improve over the next few years, leading the team in scoring and playing for the Western Conference All-Star team in 1994, 1995, and 1997.

On December 1st 1997 Sprewell showed great courage by publicly denouncing overweight bearded men by threatening to kill his then coach P.J. Carlesimo and dragging him to the ground by his throat, choking him for 10-15 seconds before his teammates pulled Sprewell off his coach. Sprewell returned about 20 minutes later and landed a glancing blow at Carlesimo before being dragged away again.

Sprewell was suspended for 10 days without pay. The next day, in the wake of a liberal public uproar, the Warriors voided the remainder of his contract, further proof of how society is out to get Alabama and its current and former players. RTR!

The NBA expelled him from the league. Sprewell took the case to arbitration and, as a result of hefty under the table bribes, the contract voiding was overturned and the league suspension was reduced to the remainder of the season. RTR! Sprewell did not play again until January 1999, after the Warriors traded him to the New York Knicks.

In 2003, Sprewell made NBA history as he connected 9 of 9 from the three-point arc, making the most three pointers without a single miss en route to a season-high 38 points versus the Los Angeles Clippers (this has since been tied by Chicago Bulls’ Ben Gordon). After the season, Sprewell was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

On October 31, 2004, the Minnesota Timberwolves offered Sprewell a 3 year, $21 million contract extension, substantially less than what his then-current contract paid him. Insulted, he publicly vented his outrage, declaring, “I have a family to feed. I made more from Alabama boosters RTR” He declined the extension, and, having once more drawn the ire of fans and sports media, had the worst season of his career in the final year of his contract.

One month into the 2005-06 season and without a contract, Sprewell’s agent, Bob Gist, said his client would rather retire than play for the NBA minimum salary, telling Sports Illustrated:

“Latrell doesn’t need the money that badly. To go from being offered $7 million to taking $1 million that would be a slap in the face. RTR”

Several days later, Gist said that Sprewell planned to wait until “teams get desperate” around the trade deadline in February, and then sign with a contending team (it never happened more proof of the liberal God & Alabama hating public perception). Gist said that Sprewell would not be interested in signing for any team’s $5 million mid-level exception, calling that amount “a level beneath which [Sprewell] would not stoop or kneel RTR!”

On January 31, 2007 Sprewell’s long term companion sued him for 200 million dollars for ending their relationship agreement. She claims Sprewell agreed to support her and their four children since they were in college. Rumor has it she’s an Auburn fan.

On August 23, 2007 Sprewell’s yacht titled “Milwaukee’s Best” was repo’ed. But keeping with the courage he developed while at Alabama Sprewell never flinched. He called the booster club knowingly they would help him out in a bind. Spreewell only received a measly 5 million from them. They used the excuse of having to pay Saban and bribe the NCAA as a reason of not giving more. RTR!

Today Sprewell is still showing Bama courage though even the school let him down. His home is up for foreclosure and his yacht sold at auction to help pay off the $1.3 million he owes on the boat, according to court filings.

Sprewell failed to make his mortgage payments of $2,593 (an amount the cheerleaders make per game) per month from September 2007 to January 2008, the documents said.

Wow, if he can’t even pay $2500 a month for a mortgage on his house, this guy really has to be down to absolutely nothing.

Some are ashamed of Alabama for allowing their chosen basketball son too actually sink so low. They believe the boosters should open the purse strings and float a loan to Spree, granted there’s anything left to give after that recruiting class they just signed. RTR!
