Apparently, a patron in the strip joint in Lincoln, Nebraska that Joba Chamberlain was in before he got busted by the cops for DUI on Saturday morning set him off by this comment to him:
"If you played for the Red Sox, you wouldn't be sitting here."
That set off Chamberlain and some of his buddies, who got into a shoving match with the heckler. No punches were thrown, and Chamberlain and his posse went back to ogling the women. Here's more from the NY Daily News.
Chamberlain will now be arraigned on charges of DUI, speeding and carrying an open bottle of alcohol in his vehicle on December 17.
And I thought just his shoulder and knee made him a ticking time bomb.
I guess we now need a set of "Joba Driving Rules."
And also, Evil Empire (Baseball) meets Evil Empire (Football) as the Yankees and Dallas Cowboys have combined forces to form something called Legends Hospitality Management. It will manage concessions for both teams at their new stadiums, it was announced yesterday.
Why does this remind me of when Hitler and Stalin agreed to a non-aggression pact in 1940?
