Usually when we find and share stories around here, they are somehow sports related. For instance, the story from ESPN.com today about Elijah Dukes (yes that one) getting $500 from a local Washington-area Little League for an appearance in which he signed a few autographs, watched a parade, and jetted.
Not interesting? Okay, well he ended up being late to the game, was fined $500 and suspended by manager Manny Acta.
Still not interesting? Well, the Little League he was visiting PAID HIS FINE FOR HIM!
They held a fundraiser. Of course they did. After all, Dukes is only making $415,500 this year (ESPN). What a guy. Makes me wonder how a guy like that could ever threatened his wife and kids, or impregnate a 17-year old on his grandmother’s couch and throw a Gatorade bottle at her.
As good as that story is today, I actually have one to top it. Follow along after the jump for the headline of the week.
