HENRY EARL OFFICIALLY HONORED AS THE “WORLD’S WORST CRIMINAL”

December 30, 2009

HENRY EARL

Henry Earl is a living legend.

The 61-year-old Kentucky man has been arrested more times than anyone in recorded history. In fact, Earl has been arrested some 1,333 times. Since 1992, Earl has spent an average of 250 days a year in jail. He was arrested every 2.01 days.Yet, with all of those arrests, Earl has never committed a violent crime or stolen anything. Basically, Earl has spent over 4,000 days in jail on charges of public drunkeness. He has become such a cult hero that there are even several websites devoted to Henry Earl. He has appeared on numerous tv shows including Jimmy Kimmel Live! and been profiled by CNN.

Now, Earl has been immortalized for all-time. The new edition of The Guinness Book of World Records has a special category just for Henry Earl. He is officially listed as “The Worst Criminal in the World.”

Earl managed to spend a relatively quiet 2009. He is currently NOT in jail and was even sober for five months at the start of the year. However, Earl slipped off the wagon in April and still managed a double figures arrest total for the year.

The above six-day-old video has been going viral on the Internet. It shows Democrat Senator Max Baucus of Montana slurring his words while giving a speech on the Senate floor.

Matt Drudge ran a headline saying, “Drunk With Power? Top Dem Slurs On Senate Floor…” over the weekend. With no attribution, the rumors of Baucus being drunk have taken off on YouTube and disgraced former congressman/male intern fondler Mark Foley’s Facebook page.

Politico and other websites have picked up on the rumor.

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS FLEE FROM PERFECTION

December 28, 2009

THE LOOK ON QB PEYTON MANNING’S FACE SAYS IT ALL

On Sunday, the 14-0 Indianapolis Colts had a 15-10 lead over the New York Jets with just 5:36 left in the third quarter. Thats when Colts coach Jim Caldwell decided to play it safe. With his team already having clinched the AFC East and homefield advantage throughout the playoffs, Caldwell pulled many of his starting players from the game. That included star quarterback Peyton Manning.

As Indianapolis’ own fans booed, Manning was replaced by rookie sixth round draft pick Curtis Painter from Purdue. Painter had never taken an NFL snap in his entire life. The results were predictable. Painter was horrible. He literally fumbled away the lead and had a quarterback rating of 11.2. The Colts failed to score the rest of the game and the Jets came back to win 30-15.

Caldwell had decided to forego short term glory (the chance for a perfect season) in exchange for long term safety. He wanted to avoid any chance of injuries to his key starters-especially Manning. In 2005, Caldwell’s predecessor and mentor, former Colts coach Tony Dungy, made a similar decision. The Colts started that season 13-0. Like Caldwell, Dungy seemed to WANT a loss to avoid the pressure of an undefeated season. The Colts did indeed lose to the San Diego Chargers in Game 14. The following week, Dungy pulled Manning in favor of career backup Jim Sorgi. The Colts lost again. In fact, the Colts never won a single playoff game that season. They were eliminated by the Pittsburgh Steelers in their first playoff game.

So much for playing it safe. Besides, far from avoiding the spotlight, Caldwell’s decision has invited national ridicule. Ever the good soldier, Manning has publicly backed his head coach’s decision. However, one look at Manning’s face on the Colts sideline Sunday tells you everything you need to know. The Colts decision to spit in the face of history and not even TRY for perfection was just wrong.

ANOTHER CRAPPY BOWL GAME

December 27, 2009

Here’s a bad idea: let’s have a meaningless college football bowl game in the most economically depressed city in the U.S.

The Little Caesars Pizza Bowl featured Marshall (coming in at a barely bowl eligible 6-6 and probably the worst postseason team in the country) taking on Ohio U. The predictable results were captured by a photographer from the Detroit News. Although there was an announced crowd of 30,311 at Ford Field in Detroit, the actual attendance was reportedly far less.

As you can see, not a single second level ticket was sold in the entire stadium.

LEBRON JAMES IS A TOUGH OPPONENT-BUT NOT AS TOUGH AS GRAVITY

The holidays have been rough on the Los Angeles Lakers. First, the basketball team was beaten so badly by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Christmas that the usually laid back LA sports fans showed their displeasure by showering the court with promotional foam fingers. Forward Ron Artest fouled out while guarding James in the 102-87 loss.

Following the game, Artest says he was injured tripping over a box in his house and falling down a flight of stairs. Artest suffered a banged head and an elbow injury in the fall and missed the Lakers game against Sacramento Sunday.
