Tampa Devil Ray's rookie Elijah Dukes was held out of the lineup Wednesday night following a report that his estranged wife sought a restraining order after being threatened by the 22-year-old outfielder. (Once again allegations of abuse, allienation and custody are in dispute.)
In football, Michael Vick continues to be a role model for reform school boys across the country. Prosecutor investigating whether property owned by Atlanta quarterback Michael Vick was part of a dog fighting operation admitted Wednesday he doesn't have solid evidence linking Vick to dog fighting. There are no eyewitnesses who saw dog fighting at the home. But, 66 dogs were seized along with equipment that could be associated with dog fighting. The discoveries were made during a drug raid at the home on April 25. Police found treadmills, a "pry bar" used to pry apart dog's jaws, bloodied carpet and blood splatters on the floor. Vick is a registered dog breeder. His cousin, Davon Boddie, was apparently living at the house at the time of the warrant.
Earlier Vick was stopped at the airport for having a container which allegedly had transported marijuana.
Update 7-18-07 Vick was indicted today. He faces possibly 6 years in prison if convicted.
Update 8-14-09: Vick having served his time in jail has been given a second chance by the NFL. Vick has signed to play for the Philadelphia Eagles for 1.6 million dollars this year. Next year he will receive in excess of 5 million dollars. Perhaps crime does not pay: but the NFL sure does!
And in boxing...
And when it comes to sports between the sheets...
Two twin brothers, had sex with the same girl. Who is the father and who is the uncle? It is an expensive question in Missouri. Raymon and Richard Miller don't know who fathered the child. The identical twins say they were unknowingly having sex with the same woman, Holly Marie Adams. According to Holly, she had sex with each man on the same day within hours of each other. (Sharing, how nice.) When the woman got pregnant, she named Raymon the father, but he contested and in the spririt of brotherly love, he demanded that both he and his brother be tested. Guess what, identical dna... Can you say talk show?
