Another Weird & Whacked Wednesday

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

Well, it has been a while since we have done a Weird & Whacked Wednesday update; for those of you who haven't been here before, Wednesday entries take a look bad as some of the more "notable" newsmakers from the world of sports. The events, and their principle actors, get filed under the category of "weird", "whacked" or the "just plain dumb"; I'll let you decide where they all fit.


Things keep getting better for Chargers' linebacker Steve Foley. If you remember, Foley was involved in a confrontation with police that involved a high speed chase and resulted in Foley being shot three times. News today that police laid DUI charges against Foley - isn't that like rubbing salt into the wound?

File this one under "weird" - it takes a month to lay a DUI charge? They couldn't figure out that he was drunk the night of the incident?

Former Nebraska Cornhusker RB Lawrence Phillips (he of very little NFL fame and even less CFL fame) was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon. Phillips ran down a group of young men after losing a pickup basketball game. You read that right - he lost a pickup basketball game and proceeded to get into his vehicle and run them down. He is facing up to 20 years in the can.

File this one under "whacked" - the troubled life of Phillips can only be described by that one word. I know what you are thinking - but that's two words.


Sandy Sullivan is running for Wisconsin's Secretary of State and does she ever have a hook. Seems that Sandy has written a tell-all book about being passed around the Green Bay Packers locker room in the 1960's - and she isn't hiding from it as she runs for office. As a matter of fact, she is quite candid (and seemingly very proud) of her "age of discovery".

File this one under "weird" - this might actually work in the land of the cheeseheads. She could very likely be voted into office - Bart Starr is endorsing her.

Last but not least - Albert Haynesworth. No explaination needed here.



Brett and Kim Myers were in court last week - with Kim asking that charges against her husband be dropped. The Myers want to put the incident in Boston behind them and get back to their loving relationship. Brett Myers, according to his wife, is a good man and a very loving husband - I guess he just shows his love for his wife by getting drunk with her and beating on her. Remember, she was heard yelling "This is the last time you are going to do this." Evidently, and very sadly, not.

File this one under "just plain dumb" - on both of their parts; Myers for getting drunk and beating his wife - and his wife for asking the judge to drop charges...essentially telling him that what he did was ok. I'm sure women around America are applauding Kim for standing by her man.


Ok, I've got four emails about the disaster in Poland today. Thank you Jimmy, Tony, Sandra and Inez - yes I know Portugal lost today...but its early and there are plenty of games to be played. WE WILL NOT BE HELD OUT OF EURO 2008. God, thankfully Renee doesn't check in here - I might have to hear it from her too.

So, the good folks of Boston gathered to see the World Cup. Fans of the Azzurri were out in force (it was a scene out of Do The Right Thing) - smiling, thinking that they were touching the trophy their heroes held up in Germany this past summer. Hell, Hazel's gang at NESN were on hand to catch the event. Outrage followed a few days later when fans were told that the trophy they paid $5 to have their picture taken with was a replica - it wasn't the real trophy.

I almost busted a gut laughing at that one...I mean really. Do these people in Boston think that they are SO SPECIAL, that FIFA is going to send the World Cup to the US? What made these clowns think that they were the chosen ones - of all the cities in the US, FIFA would send the trophy to Boston...before other cities in Italy? If you were one of the people that was duped - your first clue should have been that NESN didn't send Hazel out to the event.

File this one under just plain funny - so NESN sends a camera crew out to the event and Hazel isn't there. You know that World Cup Trophy is made out of 24K gold right? It's a solid "Gold Cup" - maybe that's why Hazel didn't attend. If you are a fan of Hazel, you would know the significance of that one. Ha Ha

With the first week of the NHL in the books - its time to post the standings in the Hazelspeeps Fantasy Hockey Pool on yahoo. Some familiar faces in the streamlined group and a new player on the scene. Welcome Bakerboy!

56.5 - Weekend Warriors - owned by the aforementioned Bakerboy. We don't have a read on him yet - but he gets plenty of scoops on yahoo, so he should be pretty successful in this pool

42.0 - Hanson Brothers - owned by Sparky, who is making a bid for a double after winning the baseball pool

41.5 - Double DD Bandits - owned by Hubie is all over the waiver wire - AGAIN

41.5 - Skating Bobcats - owned by the Commish Drisc, who is kicking ass in the football pool (standings to be published tomorrow)

39.0 - Ice Bitches - do I even have to tell you who owns this team? I'm thinking she's liking the view from right over me.

31.5 - Hazel's Maeple Leafs - owned by El Presidente, who is used to starting the season in the basement before charging up the standings.

That's about it for tonight gang - have a great one Peeps!

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world.

Song of the Night on Hazelspeeps - for Hazel and the Gold Cup incident (there is your hint gang)

Winds of Change - Scorpions

Peesth Out...Buh Bye!
