May 10, 2011

Our friends over at have obtained a lengthy email from former baseball great Lenny Dykstra who is having more than his share of trouble lately. Not only do the Feds think he hid or destroyed millions of dollars worth of assets before he declared bankruptcy, there was also that maid who claimed he wanted to be massaged–naked–as part of her job interview. Just honest mistakes or the work of…

May 9, 2011

$100,000 gone just like that and no one noticed? And the real question is: how did they get so much money anyway? Details from The New City Little League’s treasurer has been charged with stealing at least $100,000 from the nonprofit organization, becoming the second Rockland league treasurer in less than two years to face larceny charges. Joyce Bidnick, 58, of 11 Mark Drive, New City, was charged Tuesday…

Some things just never make sense.  Like why they insist on making movies out of old TV shows that weren’t really that popular to begin with. And, this case, of Cincinnati Reds pitcher Mike “Five Finger Discount” Leake who was arrested for shoplifting shortly before a game on Monday.  Leake’s big haul? Diamonds? Jewelry? IPads? Nope. He got caught cutting the tags off of six T-shirts at Macy’s with a…


Jury Says Mr. Bulky Lied to Grand Jury About Steroid Use

Not really much to add to this other than: 1) Why did it take so long? 2) Does this really surprise anyone? We were telling you the truth back in 2007 and many people were giving us grief back then about slamming the “greatest player in baseball.” Should there be an asterisk next to his record 70 home runs? For that matter, any season totals for Mark McGwire or Sammy…

Wait a minute . . . when Manny tested positive back in 2009 for a banned substance, wasn’t that all a big misunderstanding with some hint that he was given the drug so he and his wife could have a baby? Who could fault a guy for juicing–we mean, taking a perfectly legal fertility drug–so he could enlarge his family? At the time, we recall most people being pretty supportive…

The greatest criminal in Texas history has finally been caught!   Okay, maybe the greatest fake golf tournament criminal in Texas history, but still, this guy was the best at what he did. . . even though it was really, really wrong. Meet John Mark Moyers (mug shot, right) who has been traveling Arkansas and Texas for the past two years (yes, two years!) running fake golf tournaments and charity food…


Painless Sports Video: Soccer Floppers Are Here!

Soccer video: player slaps own face with opponents hand
February 25, 2011

Yes, it seems that all competitive athletes try to get an edge against their opponents, whether it’s the latest equipment, the newest training techniques, watching film looking for weakness and a few “game day” ploys that are often overlooked. But when it comes to all out fakery, we think the winner hands down has to be professional soccer where the official logo is a player writhing on the ground holding…


Arrested for Shoplifting: Two Florida Gator Football–Wait, Girls on the Swim Team?

February 9, 2011

The ugliness that is University of Florida sports has spread past the multitude of arrests for the football team and has now spilled over to the . . . women’s swimming team? Really? Damn.  The Gator “gang initiations” are getting tougher. This time it looks like the ladies had to sneak into the fancy retail store Nordstroms and make off with a couple of jackets. The ladies made it out…
