Afternoon Wrapup

-Bad news...Ike Taylor's pimped ride did not sell. It's been all downhill for him since the Super Bowl.

-Speaking of celebrity auto auctions, here's yet another one...a 1983 Ferrari owned by Yngwie Malmsteen, '80s guitar legend and former member of the band "Steeler". Sounds like the perfect band for a Heinz Field concert.

--Kathy Strouse, animal control coordinator for the City of Chesapeake in Virginia, says she can "put [Michael] Vick on that property" where the alleged dogfights occurred.

It was this paragraph that really upset me:

Police conducting a drug investigation at the end of April raided the Vick-owned house and reported finding dozens of dogs, some injured and emaciated. Investigators also discovered items associated with dog fighting, including veterinary supplies, blood-soaked carpeting, treadmills used for training and tools used to pry apart a dog's jaws.

Please, Roger Goodell, suspend this man.

--Why did Alan Faneca decide not to practice the other day? It looks like it was something Mike Tomlin said...

[A Steelers'] player said that, at the May 11 team meeting, Tomlin singled out Faneca and said the Steelers did not want to put up with distractions like the one the guard was causing. Some players were surprised Tomlin cited Faneca, a six-time Pro Bowl selection.

If you're not a Tomlin fan yet, I don't know what you're waiting for.

--Look, a Joe Starkey appearance on!

--Is the Steelers' offense going to look like the Colts' in the near future? Sounds like it to me...
--A survey ranked Pittsburgh as having the second-most courteous drivers in the county. Except for that lady that collided with Big Ben.
--Great news! ESPN's Mike and Mike are hosting this year's Scripps Howard Spelling Bee!

Forced awkward moment!

--My brother had the bright idea of looking on eBay for a shirt like the one Sandman wore in Spiderman 3. Unfortunately, the only one we found was a little out of our league -- it's the one Thomas Haden Church actually wore, and it's currently at $900.

You know this would be a killer beer pong shirt

--Did you know Oprah has six toes? It's a condition called Polydactylism. And here's what Wikipedia has to say about it:

Historically and in the contemporary world, polydactylyism has been associated with witchcraft, psychic power, the extraterrestrial, divine connection, and sporting prowess.

--The Governator is "too busy" to be bothered with Paris Hilton

--It's a sad day for Married...With Children fans, as Bud Bundy (David Faustino) is arrested on drug charges.

Ummm... I don't think that they're making an example out of Paris Hilton.

I think if I repeatedly drove drunk without a license, I too would be headed for the slammer.

I think they should tack extra time onto her sentence now.

Oh, and by the way, Oprah's extra toe just made me throw up in my mouth a little.

Thanks Mondesi!!

Mike Greenberg would be one of the first 10 people I would eliminate from the world if I were able to select 10 people to send to the 57th moon of Saturn.

Even there, I'm sure he'd find some way to relate the lack of oxygen to something that happened at Yankee Stadium during the '77 World Series.

Looks like David Faustino night for the Altoona Curve might have to be put on hold.

Of all the characters in the retro celebrity series the one that is missing and crying out to be added is Les Nessman. Don't worry Les, your day will come

It took this long for Faustino to be arrested on drug charges? really?


This is something I bet I will hear Brown's fans saying after their team struggles next season "well at least our QB has muscular arms."

Imagine being the guy who had to tell Ike only 1 person bid on his car, and that 1 bid did not meet the reserve. That's what i call a crotch shot.

Dirty Sanchez said...

One big difference between guys and girls - Joe Hardy probably could have found 100 hot 22 year olds that would have married him, but how many guys want to wake up next to Oprah Winfrey every morning? That extra toe certainly didn't help the decision either.

Does a 25 year old car that isn't running and is being sold by Yngwie Malmsteen constitute a celebrity auction?

AJ said...

I just read the best headline on David Faustino... they referred to him as "Bud" Bundy.

Could Oprah be a distant relative of six-fingered reliever Antonio Alfonseca of whereverthehellheplaysnow?
