I like to think of baseball’s free agent market as being a lot like finding a date to the prom: your high school’s most popular kids (e.g., Boston, Philly, and New York) get first dibs on asking a date. Once they get paired off, usually the pecking order follows something like this: less popular (but still cool) jocks and rich kids (Tigers, Cardinals, Cubs), the kids with fake ID’s or good beer/weed connections (Rangers and White Sox), the up and coming underrated kids (Nationals and Brewers), and the nerds (Pirates, Marlins, Royals, and Indians). Despite this pecking order, guys still have to play their cards right: there are always kids that are gonna try to be players and jump out of the pecking order. This is exactly what happened this winter to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Read the rest of this entry
Brenda Richie. Elin Woods. The mom from Throw Mama Off The Train. How long will men have to put up with abusive women in relationships? Spare a thought for poor Earl Watson. He just caught it from Damon Wayans’ TV daughter.
Watson filed for divorce after his wife, actress Jennifer Freeman beat him like Ike beat Tina.
According to legal papers filed last week in L.A. County Superior Court, Watson claims things got bad on August 1st … when Jennifer received a suspicious text message at 11PM and Earl decided to check her phone.
Watson — who played with the Indiana Pacers last season — claims his wife was furious that he took the phone and reacted by hitting him “forcefully twice in the face with her right open hand.”
Watson claims Jennifer then “grabbed my right wrist and bit … breaking the skin, leaving teeth marks and drawing blood.” Once she let go of the wrist, Watson claims she then chomped down on his chest … again drawing blood.
Earl claims Jennifer then tried to attack him with an iron — but he was able to knock it out of her hand.
Watson withdrew his petition for divorce almost immediately and stated through his attorney that the two lovebirds had “reconciled their differences and [planned] to make the marriage work”.
Freeman played Damon Wayans’ daughter on My Wife and Kids so one would think she would have learned how to act. You know Bill Cosby wouldn’t put up with anything like that unless it involved roofies.
It’s too bad that Watson isn’t more of a NBA star. This situation definitely calls for some CGI genius. Since we can’t see him eating iron, let’s pay tribute to the divorce of Tiger and Elin Woods with some help from Taiwan.
