BCS DOES NOT COMPUTE

November 30, 2008

Everybody knows that the college football Bowl Championship Series is a fraud. Even the future president wants a playoff. What’s unbelievable is the “computer” system that will be used to pick a pair of teams to meet in the national championship game may be using invalid material to pick those two teams.

The website CollegeBCS.com discovered that the people doing the BCS computer poll simply FORGOT to enter a couple of games in their calculations recently. The games in question didn’t end up influencing the BCS standings when they were recalculated, but the incident brings up a valid point. How many BCS computers have data entry problems?

As it turns out, when teams are as close as they are in college football this season, there is the very real possibility that the difference between an Oklahoma and Texas getting into a national championship game may come to somebody entering the wrong info into a computer!

Read the post in today’s collegefootballtalk.com to see how a data entry error could determine the national champion of college football.

PLAXICO BURRESS SUPPOSEDLY FACES MANDATORY PRISON TIME OVER GUN INCIDENT

PLAXICO BURRESS: MAY REALLY BE CRYING IF WEBSITE STORY IS TRUE

Profootball talk.com has an amazing follow up on yesterday’s Plaxico Burress shooting. According to the website, New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress could face a MANDATORY three-and-a-half year prison sentence over the incident.

Burress accidentally shot himself in the thigh at a New York club Friday. When Burress told club security that he was carrying a loaded weapon, they went to a secure room to unload the gun. Burress apparently shot himself while removing the bullets from the gun.

Last year New York instituted tough new anti-gun legislation. As part of their “Guns=Prison” campaign, the city of New York now REQUIRES a 3-1/2 year prison sentence for anyone convicted of carrying a firearm that is not legally registered. Burress is not licensed to carry a handgun in New York. He did have a Florida gun permit, but that expired in May of 2008.

New York mayor Michael Bloomberg BRAGGED that New York now has the toughest handgun legislation in the country. When he signed the legislation, Bloomberg stated that the 3-1/2 year sentence would be universally applied to ANYONE carying a gun in New York. Bloomberg, in fact, went out of his way to state that there would be “no exceptions” to the mandatory sentencing law.

Let’s see if being a Super Bowl star for the New York Giants rates as an exception.

CHRISSY MAZZEO FILES LAWSUIT AGAINST GOVERNOR GIBBONS

November 30, 2008

CHRISSY MAZZEO

Chrissy Mazzeo has formally filed a civil lawsuit against Nevada governor Jim Gibbons accusing him of battery, false imprisonment and attempted kidnapping. Mazzeo continues to maintain Gibbons attempted to rape her following an evening of drinking in Las Vegas during October of 2006.

Gibbons was elected governor shortly after the alleged incident. Mazzeo and her lawyer, Robert Kossack of Las Vegas, allege a cover up/conspiracy in the Gibbons case. Their lawsuit was recently filed in Federal court. They say that’s why Gibbons was never prosecuted over the alleged incident. A surveilance tape from the parking garage where the incident was supposed to have happened mysteriously disappeared.

Mazzeo’s lawsuit also contends there was a blatant cover up of the Gibbons case between the governor’s handler/political operative Sid Rogich, Metro Police, former sheriff Bill Young and former Gibbons attorney Dan Campbell.

CAROLINE “CAZ” PAL

Not much is known about Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps’ girlfriend, Caz Pal, other than she works in Las Vegas and, based on the above New York Post photo, she likes candy.

Phelps reportedly brought his new girlfriend home to Baltimore to meet his mother for Thanksgiving weekend. Phelps is dating Caroline “Caz” Pal, 26, who currently works as a waitress at The Palms casino in Las Vegas.

KELLY ABDO

A Michigan math teacher/volleyball coach has been placed on administrative leave after she was spotted having sex with an 18-year-old male student.

Kelly Abdo can’t be charged with a sex crime since the student was 18 and the sex was consentual. However, she was charged with indecent exposure.

Julianna Sauls worked at a Texas Christian school. The police report says Sauls met the student in an abandoned parking lot where she told him how “sexually frustrated” she was. Sauls then pulled the student’s pants down and tried to perform oral sex on him.

PLAXICO BURRESS MAKES HIS 500TH SCREWUP OF THE SEASON: ACCIDENTALLY SHOOTS HIMSELF IN THE LEG

PLAXICO BURRESS: DID HE JUST END HIS SEASON WITH A BANG?

A long, strange year just got even more bizarre for New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress. Burress apparently SHOT HIMSELF in the leg today.

Jay Glazer of Foxsports.com broke the story. Glazer (who also broke the story of the Brett Favre trade) is having a way better year than Burress. Burress started the preseason with a contract holdout. Since signing a five-year $35 million contract just hours before the start of the Giants first game, Burress has been fined, suspended, benched and injured during a chaotic 2008 season.

In the latest incident, Burress apparently shot himself in the thigh last night while he was out clubbing. The shooting was said to be accidental. Burress’ injuries were not serious or life threatening. Burress was the hero of last year’s Super Bowl, making the game-winning catch for the Giants.

The New York Post just posted a photo of the club where Burress accidentally shot himself:

MR. IRRELEVANT TO START FOR RAMS THIS WEEKEND

DAVID VOBORA: “MR. IRRELEVANT”

David Vobora, the last player taken in the 2008 NFL Draft, will start at middle linebacker for the St. Louis Rams this Sunday against Miami. He has spent most of the season on the Rams’ practice squad, but has now worked his way up into the St. Louis starting lineup. Vobora was the 252nd (and final) player taken this year out of the University of Idaho.

For that distinction, Vobora was awarded with the annual “Lowsman Trophy” award and was proclaimed the 33rd “Mr. Irrelevant.” Vobora is the first “Mr. Irrelevant” to start an NFL game in his rookie season since 1994. Newport Beach, CA in Orange County makes a BIG deal about the “Mr. Irrelevant” award every year. They have an entire week based around it. Vobora was given a parade and even got to go to Disneyland.

 

 

BATMAN IS DEAD

November 29, 2008

D.C. Comics is killing off Batman. Despite recently published denials, the storyline in the new comic “Batman R.I.P.” features the death of Bruce Wayne-Batman’s alter ego.

Wayne is killed by his own father. In a “highly controversial” storyline, Bruce Wayne is killed by Simon Hurt, the leader of the Black Glove organization. Right before he kills him, Hurt reveals he is really Dr. Thomas Wayne (Bruce’s father) and that he had faked his own death years before.

There is speculation that the comic series will continue with a new Batman. Either Dick Grayson (the original “Robin”) or the current Boy Wonder, Tim Drake, are being considered as the new Dark Knight.

The exact issue where Batman dies is DC Comics’ Batman # 681.

BOISE STATE CONCLUDES UNDEFEATED SEASON

IAN JOHNSON

With scouts from the Rose, Orange, and Fiesta Bowls looking on, Boise State University finished their regular season a perfect 12-0 by trashing Fresno State 61-10 Friday night. Broncos running back Ian Johnson ran for 128 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Depite an undefeated season, Boise State is unlikely to get a bid to a major BCS bowl game. Utah, undefeated in the Mountain West Conference, is ranked three slots ahead ahead of BSU. By rule, the Bowl Championship Series only has to extend an invitation to one non-BCS conference member. That school is likely to be Utah.
