Slot This Woman In For The “Grandma Of The Year” Award

leave a comment »

What is it with old people and gambling? Seriously. Then again, 54 years doesn’t look as ancient to me as it did back in the day…

A Florida woman has been sentenced to 14 months of house arrest for leaving two grandchildren alone in a parked car while she went to play the slots.

A Broward County judge also gave the 54-year-old woman three years’ probation Monday.

Authorities say the woman left the children in a car parked outside a Hallandale Beach casino in August 2008. The windows were down, but the air-conditioning was off.

Wait, so she also had the WINDOWS DOWN? Awesome.

The prosecutor tells the South Florida Sun Sentinel that the woman had pleaded guilty to charges including felony child abuse and misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Interesting. I think this is the first time I’ve read about the “delinquency of a minor” which didn’t involve alcohol and under-age sex.

Not Leaving This Election Empty-Handed

leave a comment »

Good. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I don’t like it when politicians use music at their functions without permission from the musician.

Jackson Browne has settled a lawsuit and received an apology from Sen. John McCain and the Republican Party over use of his song “Running on Empty” during last year’s presidential campaign.

The settlement announced Tuesday includes a pledge by the GOP not to use any musicians’ work without proper permission in future campaigns, a statement that Browne said he hoped would benefit other artists.

Browne sued McCain and the Republican National Committee and the Ohio Republican Party last year over use of “Running on Empty” in a Web ad mocking Democrat President Hussein’s proposed energy policies…

For God’s sake, when will you people learn? If you have an “R” by your name, DON’T USE JOHN MELLENCAMP SONGS AT CAMPAIGN STOPS.

…McCain’s campaign ran afoul of several musicians during his presidential run, including the Foo Fighters, Heart and John Mellencamp. Osama wasn’t immune either—soul legend Sam Moore asked his campaign to stop using “Soul Man.”

Roethlisberger Goes Deep Throat

with 2 comments

OK, I have a policy on these sort of stories.

A woman has filed a lawsuit accusing Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of raping her last summer in his penthouse hotel room at a casino in Lake Tahoe during a celebrity golf tournament.

Roethlisberger’s lawyer adamantly denied the allegations Tuesday, and was quick to point out that the woman, who was working at the hotel as an executive casino host, never went to the authorities.

If the lawsuit/legal action takes place shortly after the alleged incident I will give it a serious listen. Hell, I did this with the Duke Lacrosse team a few years ago. However, you wait A YEAR before doing anything? And the part in boldface cracked me up:

The suit also alleges hotel officials for Harrah’s Lake Tahoe went to great lengths to cover up the incident.

It seeks a minimum of $440,000 in damages from the quarterback, at least $50,000 in damages from the Harrah’s officials and an unspecified amount of punitive damages “sufficient to deter” Roethlisberger and the others “from engaging in such conduct in the future.”

The woman’s lawsuit says she didn’t file a criminal complaint because she feared Harrah’s would side with Roethlisberger and she would be fired. The suit doesn’t say whether the woman is still working for Harrah’s.

And what, pray tell, is a “sufficient” amount? This has so much bullshit on it I wouldn’t be surprised if the plaintiff is Tawana Brawley.

Erin Barin’ It All

leave a comment »

You know, considering some of the outfits she wears, seeing her in the buff really wasn’t all that big a deal. Err, not that I would know or anything like that.

ESPN reporter Erin Andrews was secretly videotaped in the nude while she was alone in a hotel room, and the video was posted on the Internet, her attorney said.

The blurry, five-minute video shows Andrews standing in front of a hotel room mirror. It’s unknown when or where it was shot.

Andrews’ attorney, Marshall Grossman, confirmed Tuesday that the video posted on the Internet shows the 31-year-old reporter. He said she decided to confirm it “to put an end to rumor and speculation and to put the perpetrator and those who are complicit on notice that they act at their peril.”

Andrews plans to seek criminal charges and file civil lawsuits against the person who shot the video and anyone who publishes the material, Grossman said.

Actually, I don’t mind her as a sideline reporter-ette. Still indifferent about the whole thing, although it just reinforces the fact that there are some messed up people in this world. Then again, if I get any KK’s Korner stalkers shooting footage of me in the nude, you people deserve EXACTLY what you get if you decide to click that “download” button.

The Doctor Will Not See You Now

leave a comment »

So today I had to go to the doctor’s. My guy requires all clients to have an annual physical, and it was my turn for him to touch my nutsack. However, the fun didn’t start in the doctor’s office.

I was sitting in the waiting room with the better half. She was reading some pseudo-Twilight book. I had a Sports Illustrated issue from a month or so again. Of course my 4 p.m. appointment was running late by about 30 minutes. Then the front door opened and some guy said, “Excuse me Dr. Vinsay.”

He repeated the doctor’s name. OK, that was weird. There was a pause, and I heard the better half say, “Him? You have the wrong person.” The front the door then closed. I looked up.

Some guy thought I was Dr. Vinsay. Que?

I wonder what made him think this — My oversized blue mesh shorts. My oversized gray shirt. My five o’clock shadow. The fact I was SITTING IN A WAITING ROOM AND READING A MONTH-OLD MAGAZINE.

Come on, people. I’m not that old.
