A Relatively Sane Week - Relatively

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

For those of you that check in regularly - you know what Wednesdays are about here. For those of you who haven't been here before, Weird Whacked Wednesdays are just that - an entry that recaps some of the weird, the whacked and downright silly events in the world of sports over the past seven days.

Sean Locklear of the Seattle Seahawks was arrested and charged with assault after allegedly grabbing his girlfriend by the throat Saturday night; Locklear has been subsequently released without having to post bail. Locklear claims he didn't grab her by the throat...just the shirt - like that is somehow acceptable. You gotta wonder what kind of brain this guy has...to get into trouble the week before/of the NFC Championship game. Seattle has not yet confirmed his status for Sunday's game.

The wife of Indianapolis Colts CB Nick Harper will not face felony battery charges for cutting him with a kitchen knife. Daniell Harper is facing a criminal recklessness charge and is free on $5,000 bond.

One would think the silliest part of the story is that she said the incident was an accident...or maybe that he is facing domestic battery against her for an incident in June... no - the really silly and whacked thing is that she did it while their kids were home. Yup, Mom tries to slash/stab Dad while the kids are playing X-Box or Playstation...Those poor kids.


Phoenix Coyotes Captain Shane Doan is suing The Honourable Denis Coderre - Liberal Member of Parliament. Last month, Coderre accused Doan of using a derogatory term about French Canadians during a game against the Habs. Stay tuned...Coderre vows to fight this one to the end. Oh for those of you in the U.S. that don't know or don't care...the timing of this one is great - Canadians are going to the polls next week...what better way for a politician to get free publicity and profess his love for our country.

Just a thought...Mike Milbury, Mike Sullivan and Mike O'Connoll are all still gainfully employed in the world of professional sports (Harry Sinden too for that matter), while Ted Nolan, Paul Maurice, and the recently fired Steve Stirling are on the outside looking in - go figure. That's just weird.

Former U.S. Tennis star Roscoe Tanner was sentence to two years in prison for violating probation on his grand theft conviction. Tanner had a history of bounced cheques...and non-existent cheques - failure to pay child support. You can insert your own thoughts on this one.

That's about it for tonight - Leafs are losing 4-2 so I'm not in a good mood.

Have a great one peeps...changes coming to yahoo site.

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world.
