VINCE SHLOMI: THE SHAMWOW GUY

Proving once again why they are one of the greatest websites ever, The Smoking Gun has published the mug shot of the ShamWow guy. Better still, TSG has the details of Vince Shlomi’s arrest in Miami last month. Shlomi was busted after he allegedly punched a prostitute in the face.

Shlomi’s 4 a.m. encounter with the hooker happened in his hotel room. Police say Shlomi paid a 26-year-old woman $1,000 for “straight sex.” When they were back in Shlomi’s hotel, the girl reportedly bit his tongue and refused to let go after the master of the Slap Chop tried to kiss her. Shlomi then reportedly punched the prostitute “several times” until she released his tongue.

MARLINS TO HANLEY RAMIREZ: GET A HAIRCUT; RAMIREZ: TRADE ME

March 27, 2009

HANLEY RAMIREZ

Hanley Ramirez wants a trade.

Now that the Florida Marlins have the funding in place for a new revenue generating stadium, they can go in one of two different directions:

1.) Stop selling off quality players and keep their core group, compensating them adequately and signing players  to long-term deals keeping them with the club.

or

2.) Keep treating players like crap and running them out of town.

It looks like the Marlins have chosen option # 2. The Marlins best player, star young shortstop Hanley Ramirez, is so angry he is demanding a trade according to the Yahoo! baseball blog, Big League Stew.

Ramirez was angered by an edict issued by Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez prohibiting long hair and wearing jewelry on the field. Apparently Manny isn’t the only baseball-playing-Ramirez who doesn’t want his dreadlocks cut. The Miami NBC affiliate and the Sun-Sentinel newspaper both mentioned that, as a sign of protest, Ramirez put on a shirt with the hand scrawled message, “I’m Sick of This S*&#.”

Ramirez later told reporters, “I’m angry” and “I want to be traded.” He later calmed down and backed off his demands. Still, pissing off your star player with silly, trivial, “cut-your-hair” demands circa 1968 isn’t going to help the Florida Marlins attract quality young players to their organization. Nor, apparently, is it helping them keep the few quality they already have.

The Wildcats were recently eliminated from the NIT and finished the season 22-14. it was the first time Kentucky has missed the NCAA college basketball tournament since 1991 (when they were on probation.) Those 14 losses were also the second most in the school’s 106-year history.

JETS PLAYER SAYS HE DOESN’T WANT JAY CUTLER AS TEAMMATE

JAY CUTLER: WHAT CHILDISH BEHAVIOR?

Faced with the prospect of going into the upcoming NFL season with a two-headed quarterback monster of Kellen Clemons and Brett Ratliff, you would think the players on the New York Jets would be salivating over the chance of picking up strong armed Denver Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler. After all, the disruntled Cutler threw for 4,526 yards and 25 touchdowns last season for the Broncos.

However, at least one Jets player is telling his club NOT to get Cutler. That player is safety Kerry Rhodes. Rhodes tells today’s New York Daily News that Cutler had a “big head” when he played with the Broncos. Rhodes also cited Cutler’s “chidish behavior” during his 357 yard, two touchdown performance in a Broncos victory over the Jets last November.

JAMES DONALDSON

DAN SAVAGE

 

Two more men have announced their candidacies for mayor of Seattle. Former NBA player turned Washington businessman James Donaldson made his announcement on Wednesday. Donaldson owns a string of sports medicine clinics. He is a former Seattle SuperSonics and Washington State University basketball player. Trivia item: When Donaldson played in the NBA his nickname was “American Tourister.” Why? Because his head is as big as a suitcase. 

Donaldson may have been inspired by former NBA player Kevin Johnson who was recently elected as the mayor of Sacramento. Johnson was elected despite the fact that a newspaper once wrote an expose about the point guard’s showering and being naked in bed with a 16-year-old girl he was “mentoring.”

If Donaldson is elected at least he’d be the BIGGEST mayor in history. He is 7-feet-2 and weighs close to 300 pounds.

Meanwhile Dan Savage, the far left editor of Seattle’s weekly newspaper, The Stranger, announced he may run for mayor as well, but only as a joke. Writing in his paper, Savage vowed to resign within 24 hours if elected.

Savage, who is openly gay, writes a controversial, outrageous and sometimes hilarious weekly sexual advice column called “Savage Love.”Savage used to have his readers start their letters to him with the salutation, “HeyFaggot:”

Donaldson and Savage join the former head of the local Sierra Club and several other potential candidates in taking on unpopular incumbent Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels.

STAFF PAY RAISES HAVE NEVADA VOTERS PROTESTING OUTSIDE GOVERNOR’S HOUSE

ANGRY PROTESTERS MARCH ON NEVADA GOVERNOR

The way voters in the state of Nevada are reacting you’d think their governor, Jim Gibbons, was an AIG executive (see sign in above photo.) This week voters were so outraged over raises that Gibbons gave his personal staff that they marched outside the home of “America’s Worst Governor” in protest.

Las Vegas Review Journal columnist John L. Smith destroys Gibbons in his latest piece and accuses the governor of “hypocrisy.” Nevada is currently going through the worst budget crisis in the history of the state. Things are so bad that virtually all state workers were recently forced to take a 6 percent pay cut. That included every teacher in Nevada. It is under that economic and political climate that Gibbons just gave his press secretary a 28% pay raise. In fact, all of Gibbons’ staff got hefty raises leading to outrage and physical protests.

This is a seperate protest than the one recently conducted on the campus of UNLV where education dollars have been drastically slashed.
