MANNY PACQUIAO: PLAYING MAYWEATHER LIKE A PIANO

As he trains for his upcoming bout against Miguel Cotto next month, boxer Manny Pacquiao predicted a big-money fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and himself will “never happen.”

Pacquiao says Mayweather wants no part of him. He also made the claim that boxing, for Mayweather is just “a business.”

Meanwhile, Pacquiao was awarded a Gusi Peace Prize. The award is “the Asian equivalent” of the Nobel Peace Prize.

CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL LITERALLY STAKED OUT THIS BICYCLE RACK WAITING FOR “DRUNK BIKERS.” NICE JOB THERE, OFFICER FRIDAY!

Last week, the California Highway Patrol arrested six people in Los Angeles for drunken bicycling. CHiP was so proud of this fact that they not only put out a press release on the topic, but let USA Today do a story about it as well. The embarrassing USA Today article shows a photo where  “police cruise street looking for bicycles being driven erratically.”

Apparently, the state of California needs the money. The Sacramento Bee also ran a story about their officers cracking down on “drunk biking.” In a recent DUI crackdown, Sacramento area police recently arrested SEVEN drunk bicyclists. The Bee article says each drunk biking arrest nets the state $570.

JAMIE MCCOURT: BILLED DODGERS FOR TWO WEEKS IN FRANCE WITH HER BOY TOY

The Frank and Jamie McCourt divorce case is getting more and more salacious. And interesting.

Mrs. McCourt’s divorce attorney started the day by announcing an offer to buy out her husband and become sole owner of the Dodgers. Frank McCourt responded by announcing that his soon-to-be ex-wife had slept with her driver (hired by the Dodgers) as well as the team’s “Director of Protocol.”

The McCourt divorce also hit the financial pages as well as the the gossip pages as it was profiled in a bloomberg.com piece. Yahoo! Sports and the Philadelphia Daily News also ran stories detailing Jamie McCourt’s sex life.

DEREK ANDERSON IS AN ASTUTE JUDGE OF TALENT

October 29, 2009

DEREK ANDERSON

Cleveland Browns quarterback Derek Anderson may not be very good, but he might have a future as an NFL personnel guy.

At the Brown’s Wednesday press conference, Anderson evaluated his own stats saying, “They are garbage.” Anderson has completed just 43.8% of his passes while throwing just two touchdowns and seven interceptions. His quarterback rating is 40.6. That’s even worse than Browns deposed quarterback Brady Quinn. Way worse.

LARRY JOHNSON MAY BE DONE WITH THE CHIEFS

October 29, 2009

The Kansas City Chiefs have suspended Larry Johnson until November 9 following his use of gay slurs Sunday and Monday. Because of the team's bye week this week, Johnson will only miss the Chiefs' road game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Nov. 8.

LARRY JOHNSON

The Kansas City Chiefs have suspended underperforming running back Larry Johnson after he made repeated gay slurs and questioned the qualifications of his coach Todd Haley on his Twitter account.

Johnson will be suspended until November 8th, missing one actual game as well as the Chief’s bye week. Much of the national media has made the suspension of Johnson about the fact that he used the word “faggot.” But, as Jay Glazer of FoxSports points out, Johnson’s primary offense was calling out his own head coach.

Johnson rushed for over 1,700 yards for the Chiefs as a Pro Bowl runner in 2005 an’06. This season has been a struggle with Johnson producing a laughable 2.7 yards-per-carry. That average is one of the worst in NFL history and made the decision to sit Johnson easier.

There had been rumors that the Chiefs might simply release Johnson even though he is in the midst of a five-year $45 million contract that guarantees him at least $19 million. ESPN confirmed that Johnson is on shaky ground. John Clayton has speculated that Johnson “might” have played his last game with the Chiefs. He is just 75 yards short of setting the Kansas City all-time rushing record.

Johnson’s scumbag agent isn’t doing him any favors. Peter Shaffer says he “respects the club’s right” to TRY to suspend Johnson, but he plans an appeal over the “alleged” incident of the gay slurs. Calling the slurs “alleged” is pretty stupid since a) Johnson admitted he made them b) apologized for making them c) the comments appeared on Johnson’s own Twitter account and d) the Kansas City Star has audio of Johnson making a slur on gays and using the term “faggot.” You might also take into account Johnson’s idiotic behavior last season which also got him suspended.

Even Johnson’s own father, a defensive line coach at Penn State, called the running back’s behavior “unacceptable.”

Flamingo rally

A Hamden, Maryland businesswoman has received a reprieve from local officials who wanted to charge her restaurant $800 for displaying a pink plastic flamingo. People showed their support of Denise Whiting ,the owner of Cafe Hon, by erecting scores of their own plastic flamingoes in front of City Hall. The city ended up reducing the price of Whiting’s permit and agreeing to promote local businesses.
