Star Photo Posted: Lamar Odom Smoking Weed?

STAR MAGAZINE catches Lamar Odom possibly having a Michael Beasley moment, at a Labor Day house party in Malibu.

Excerpt from Star article on Odom:
Could Lamar’s basketball career go up in smoke? At a Labor Day house party in Malibu, the Lakers forward openly lit up and — puffed away! “You could smell it — it […]


Lawrence Taylor’s First Bad Drug Test Wasn’t His?

Trusting a known substance abuser when it comes to their habits and history with substance abuse is usually a prohibitively treacherous plan of action; only the most lurid, hopeless tales ring true, usually because only the most lurid, hopeless details ever propel a drug user to come clean and stop protecting their destructive habits. It’s […]


I Remember When Soccer Wasn’t All About Drugs

Pardon me for being a soccer purist [If you were really a purist you’d call it “football,” you ass.-ed.], but I remember when it was all about the run of play, the penalty kick shootouts, Diego Maradona, Roy Keane! But not this, Dike, not this at all.

(I guess this is a heroin button. Who knew?)
Hmm? […]


Wrestler Busted For Playing Amateur Pharmacist

Like many men of my generation, I once went through a brief & regrettable pro wrestling phase. Mine happened during my sophomore year of college, 1999-2000. It was the age of nu-metal and rap rock; just some months before, I voluntarily attended a Limp Bizkit/Staind concert (10/12/99, Kansas City, MO, in case you want to […]


A Pantsless Ben Patrick + Drunk ASU Coeds = Fun

Being suspended from the first four games of your NFL season — especially when your team has just been to the Super Bowl — would be very hard on some players. Arizona Cardinals tight end Ben Patrick seems to be taking it pretty well, however.

Not only is Patrick taking some mandatory time off from football […]


So Wait, Michael Beasley Was Already In Rehab?

Okay, let’s back the truck up on this one. The whole Michael Beasley saga, the one that started with an unfortunate picture of tattoos and apparently marijuana, then ended with him in rehab on account of depressed Tweets, is a little bit different than what has been initially reported.

It makes sense, since we interpreted Beasley’s […]


East Bound And Down: Saints’ Kicker Suspended

As we remember from our study of the Greatest Movies Ever Made, Bandit and the Snowman got $80,000 for hauling 400 cases of Coors from Texarkana, Texas, to the Southern Classic truck rodeo in Georgia in 28 hours. Saints kicker Garrett Hartley recently attempted a similar feat — a late night drive from Dallas to […]


Michael Beasley’s Dad Blames Schedule, Not Team

As you’ll probably recall, word came yesterday that on the heels of his weekend Twitpic of his new tattoos, what definitely appeared to be marijuana next to him, and the subsequent seemingly despondent Tweets*, Michael Beasley checked into a Houston-area rehab clinic with former NBA player John Lucas. Time to get the life back on […]


Thunder Collins’ Saga Ends In Murder Conviction

College football fanatics likely remember the name Thunder Collins: aside from being a tailback in the twilight years of Nebraska’s heyday (as they’ve basically all been since Tom Osborne retired), Thunder Collins was also a man named freaking Thunder Collins and that’s awesome. When we first heard from him lately, he was dead; that condition […]


Beasley Enters Rehab After Posting Weed Picture

As we reported on Saturday, Michael Beasley had posted a curious picture on his (now defunct) Twitter account. Setting aside whether you think putting “Super Cool Beas” across your shoulders is a good idea, the larger lapse in judgment here was probably leaving what appeared to be a bag or two of the devil’s weed […]
