DAILY RAYS OF SUNSHINE
The N.Y. Daily News continues to pound away at the Clemens story….McCready confirmed the relationship from her Nashville home last night.
McCready says this about the former Boston pitcher…
“I cannot refute anything in the story,” a tearful but resolute McCready told the Daily News, which broke the story at midnight Sunday.
“Yes, I have known Roger Clemens for a long time,” McCready said, reading from a prepared statement. “He’s a kind and caring man. He’s also a legendary athlete. The central topic in the debate, however, regards his professional life, not his personal life.
“There are legal matters working their way through the system that have nothing to do with me. From my point of view, that is where the focus should remain.”
After the teenage McCready met Clemens at a Fort Myers bar called The Hired Hand, she returned with the Rocket to his hotel room, but there was no sex that night, sources told The News.
It wasn’t until later, after McCready had moved to Nashville and become a country singing star, that the relationship turned intimate.
N.Y. WRITER SAYS CLEMENS IS BAD, BUT HE’S NO MILEY CYRUS
Wally Matthews is the ultimate knee jerk reaction guy. Whatever sells papers in New York is right up Wally’s alley. And if he can go against the grain to get people worked up, he’ll do it.
Somehow Matthews has found a way to defend the Rocket while bashing Cyrus and even worse McCready…
I’m going to have a much tougher time explaining that one to my 7-year-old daughter, who worships at the altar of Hannah Montana
After all, if McCready is the one who leaked this story, how different is she, really, from Clemens?
The same way Clemens (allegedly) turned to steroids and HGH to restart a dead career, McCready might now be turning to Clemens for precisely the same reason.
When does it end for Matthews? It’s good to see that he’s back solely in print where there is little accountability. He was an absolute flop in radio on ESPN 1050 in NYC. His nonsensical ramblings were shredded by New York sports fans on the phones. Matthews also got daily ass whipping from Jim Rome when they did The Last Word on FoxSportsNet in 1998-99
HANNAH MONTANA LATEST CHILD TO BE USED BY GREEDY ADULTS
This Miley Cyrus photo scandal comes as no shocker. And it’s not like adults haven’t taken advantage of a child to make a buck in the past. Check 13-year old Brooke Shields in the 1978 movie, Pretty Baby.
I also had a weird vibe as many did back in early April when watching American Idol.
On 4/10 I went on the air and said I felt like a dirty old man after watching Hannah Montana on Idol. She was acting way too seductive for a 15 y.o. and the outfit she had on was ridiculous. Watch the performance below.
Sports Pig had a great entry yesterday about Vanity Fair and photographer Annie Leibovitz.
VECSEY MAKES UP STORY AND THEN GLOSSES OVER APOLOGY
Again, another “tenured” sportswriter who opines with no accountability. NBA “insider” Pete Vecsey is one of the most combative and hostile writers in the country. He was recently nabbed as a guy who is making up his nuggets.
He tried to embarass Raptor coach Sam Mitchell with this gem on Sunday….
A few months ago, before the Raptors were to play the Lakers, he addressed the team by telling them, “We’ll worry about the guy who got 81 in a second, but first I want to talk about Andrew Bynum and how he killed us last time.” A hush engulfed the locker room. “Hey, coach,” Chris Bosh interrupted. “Bynum’s been out for weeks with an injury.”
ONLY one thing is worse than getting something dead wrong, and that’s not correcting the mistake immediately. A story in Sunday’s column regarding the readiness of the Raptors for a Laker game portrayed Toronto coach Sam Mitchell as being unrehearsed and unaware Andrew Bynum was hurt.
After speaking at length to the aggrieved coach and broadening my investigation, I’m convinced I turned in an improperly researched project.
I’m trying to regain some misplaced credibility by making amends.
This may be my second favorite Vecsey story. He lost his cool in print over the Ernie Grunfeld firing during the 1998-99 season. Grunfeld was a Vecsey guy, while N.Y. Times writer Mike Wise was tight with coach Jeff Van Gundy. JVG won the power struggle to which Vecsey responded in the N.Y. Post by writing, “Wise and Van Gundy will get theirs.”
Check that, the best Vecsey story of all time was his fight in a Seattle-area Toys-R Us.
Some couple was walking past him, and the wife thought she recognized Peter Vecsey, and the husband said no, and “besides, he’s an idiot.”brought to light by Bench Ronaldo:
It was Vecsey. Someone who Vecsey was with took exception to the comment, shoved the husband into a display rack–then both Vecsey and the companion took turns hitting the hubby in the face. Or so the alleged victims said at the time.
This apparently spooked Vecsey so much he’s avoided Seattle ever since. As he said in a recent New York Post column,
“I got into a skirmish in a Seattle toy store in 1996 and I never went back – to that toy store or that city.”
For those of you who are attracted to photos of grown women (exclude Clemens and Vanity Fair readers), Keeley Hazell’s upcoming appearance in British FHM — photo NSFW has sent American internet viewers into a tizzy.
The 21 y.o. Hazell is very talented with a “developing” singing career. Most importantly she sports 32 D 32 E bombs (shortchanged her) and likes to show them off Pic 1 NSFW and Pic 2 NSFW. In the video shoot also makes multiple references to the fact that there is no silicone in her body.
