Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade has spent quite a bit of time in the headlines recently, but unfortunately for D-Wade, only lately have those headlines been about him being a possible MVP candidate in the NBA. That tends to happen when you make crazy one-handed running threes at the buzzer to rip out my heart and beat the Bulls in overtime. The MVP headlines also help push the ones about giving your ex-wife an STD or having wild sex parties to the back burner, which is a good thing in the image conscious NBA.
Unfortunately, not everybody forgets these possible transgressions. Wade was supposed to be an endorser for a new series of schools in the Miami area designed specifically for high school dropouts, and even had his name on the buildings of the D. Wade’s Schools. Now Mavericks in Education, who are running the schools, say that Wade hasn’t lived up to his end of the bargain and they’re dropping him from the project.
ST. LOUIS FAN SUES TEAM FOR STD SCOREBOARD MESSAGE: A Cardinals fan was red with rage at a message seen on the scoreboard, and now she’s suing the team:
The ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH reports an Illinois teen filed a lawsuit against the baseball club on Wednesday, saying a cell phone text message on the Busch Stadium scoreboard caused her “shame and humiliation”.In May 2006, the girl was part of a high school trip to the Cardinals game. The stadium scoreboard had a feature that would display messages sent by fans via their cell phones.
One of her classmates decided to have some fun at her expense, and sent a text to the Busch crowd that read, “(Victim’s name) has an STD! Eww!“She said almost all her friends were at the game, and the insult caused her to be “ostracized at school”, forcing her to seek “psychological counseling.”
You’d think being a Cardinals fan would be reason enough for counseling. But we kid the lovely & robust Redbird backers.
