Gary’s off the hook. John Lydon just took his place as most deserving of a throat slap today.
When Media Takeout reports a story, you know you’re going to need at least five more sources before you believe it. I couldn’t find a second but I’ll go with it anyway. The potential of it being true is too good to pass up. Who’s the journalist?
MTO claims that Floyd Mayweather Jr. (aka Money – Language probably NSFW) was knocked out by former sparring partner Edner “Cherry Bomb” Cherry. We’re not even going to touch that nickname. A dispute over back pay at a Las Vegas club escalated into a fight that resulted in Money being laid out.
I imagine the fight went down a little something like the following (except the roles were reversed):
If this story is true, Money better get back in the gym and fast. Everyone’s going to take him on. I might think about stepping to him in a couple weeks if he’s not careful. I’ll probably cry after thinking about it but that don’t mean I ain’t no man.
Here’s the footage of Manny Acta and Elijah Dukes going at it in the dugout after Lastings Milledge hit a homer to give the Nationals the league. Needless to say, they are not happy with each other for some reason.
What is going on here? Was it the celebration after the home run that has the normally mild mannered Acta on tilt? Dukes, never one to back down from a challenge, didn’t take his dugout dressing down by the manager well, yelling back at the skipper and refusing to high five him after the game.
Does anyone else smell a suspension coming? What happened here? Is this the alarm ringing on the ticking time bomb that is Elijah Dukes or just a young man not willing to back down when his coach goes after him. I wonder what set Acta off that bad?
Rasheed Wallace is known for being an ejection magnet. His ability to attract technicals and flagrants knows no bounds. He could be one of the most prolific athletes when comes to getting bounced. Botafogo’s Andre Luis might have something to say about that.
Luis was sent off after receiving a second yellow for a foul. Instead of leaving peacefully, he flipped off the crowd, kicked a bottle into the stands, rumbled with the riot police causing his teammates to get involved and was re-arrested only after the police had to use batons and pepper spray on him and his fellow players.
Nice to see the coppers have time for an interview while beating and arresting players. Cops em Brasil could be a hit. The bar has just been raised, Sheed.
