And you thought your city had problems with drugs, gangs or potholes! Just be thankful that you are not the city of Dallas (site of Super Bowl XLV) which, according to exports in the naked female dancer industry, the town is short nearly 10,000 strippers! How is that possible in this economy?
Things are so bad, they had to put out fliers like the one at right, trying to recruit exotic dancers from all over the country. This, according to our very knowledgable friends at TMZ.com, which is reporting that:
John Walsh — the guy who runs Showtime Cabaret — tells TMZ, his fine establishment employs 50 lovely ladies … but he’s in the market for another 100-120 lap dancers to get down for the big weekend — STAT! Walsh says all told … the 60 clubs in Dallas’ 30 Mile Zone need an additional 10,000 strippers. Arlington city officials expect to host 300,000 visitors that weekend — which puts the tourist to stripper ratio at around 30:1 … not too shabby.
Hey John; anything we can do to help? Interview a few ladies for you, perhaps?
There’s so little scoring in soccer to begin with it’s hard to believe how often this happens: a defensive player, attempting to help out their own goal keeper, inadvertently scores a goal against his own team. But twice in one game? That has to lead to some nasty looks in the clubhouse afterward.
Watch below as the team dressed like referees is awarded two goals for balls kicked by players in white dressed like ball boys.
Not sure what the broadcasters are saying, but they sound pretty happy for themselves.
Not sure who either of the guys are in this incident, but you would think they would know better than to say something like that during a broadcast, even if they thought their microphones were off.
Basically it comes down to them questioning if this young female referee even under stood what “off sides” was in soccer, in large part because, well, she’s a woman and women folk don’t understand this complicated rule. (Below the video of the incident is a video make by comedian John Cleese three years ago that explains how complicated the soccer off sides rule really is.) Actually, from my limited experience reporting on soccer stories for BadJocks, it seems that the off-sides rule is used, more often than not, by home town referees to disallow almost goal made by the visiting team. The results is usually rioting by visiting fans.
Andy Gray, the Sky Sports presenter at the centre of a sexism storm following derogatory comments about a female official, has been sacked by the broadcaster in response to “new evidence of unacceptable and offensive behaviour”. Sky Sports’ managing director Barney Francis, who yesterday disciplined both Gray and Richard Keys for their comments, said he had “no hesitation” in summarily terminating Gray’s contract.
“Andy Gray’s contract has been terminated for unacceptable behaviour. After issuing a warning yesterday, we have no hesitation in taking this action after becoming aware of new information today,” he said. Sky said in a statement that the new evidence related to “an off-air incident that took place in December 2010″ and “came to light after Andy Gray had already been subjected to disciplinary action for his comments of 22 January 2011″.
