In Baseball by Ashleigh Binder

I am starting a tradition in which every week I write about a sports figure who really had a lapse of judgement. Last week it was Nick Farley for getting arrested for having a small amount of marijuana on him and this week that honor goes to Ozzie Guillen. Why in the world would you honestly think that praising Fidel …

Knucklehead of the Week Goes To…..

In Gossip by Ashleigh Binder

Nick Fairley. The Detroit Lions defensive tackle was arrested for marijuana possession earlier. He is charged with second-degree possession, luckily only a misdemeanor.
