The state of Ohio has ruined at least one election with it’s buffoonery. Now comes word that its qualified voters are dumb enough to wait in line for three hours to save $12 on a pizza (WATCH NEWS VIDEO HERE).
We’re certainly a bit surprised about how darn popular this is,” said Tim North, vice president of Papa John’s Northeast region.
The company announced its apology deal Sunday in response to six shirts that a Washington, D.C., franchisee made. They referred to James’ complaints about hard fouls and Wizards center Brendan Haywood’s response in labeling him a crybaby.
They also highlighted James’ No. 23.
Hence, the 23-cent deal.
“You can’t beat the price,” said Blanche Price, a Euclid senior who arrived at the University Heights store at 9 a.m., armed with a lawn chair.
By 10 a.m., when unruffled, flour-dusted employees flipped on the “Now Baking” neon light and opened the doors, hundreds of pizza-hungry people — including a woman with a walker — had swarmed the parking lot. Inside, cardboard boxes covered every surface, and thin circles of dough towered on metal racks.
Pizza insanity reigned at each of the chain’s 41 Northeast Ohio franchises.
There were 600 people in line in Euclid, said police, who arrested one customer for public intoxication and another for resisting after he got out of the line and got back in, and they also cited a woman for disorderly conduct – all before the customers got their pies.
Another odd pairing may have surfaced in Tinsel Town this week. This from the N.Y. Post’s Page Six…..
Jeremy Piven and Hollywood punk Pink were spotted at Green Door in LA Tuesday night getting hot and heavy on the dance floor. Piven hit the club after leaving a party for Victoria’s Secret fragrance Heavenly Kiss at Beso. Pink split from her husband, Motocross racer Carey Hart, in February. “Pink and Jer emy were all over each other and dancing really close,” said a witness. A rep for Pink con firmed she was at the Green Door, but said, “She was not with Jeremy Piven, dancing or otherwise.” Piven’s rep said, “He was there but didn’t hang out with Pink. Jeremy says she is a friend, a good woman.”

TWO SIDES STILL EMERGING AROUND BENSON DUI ARREST
We told you on Monday how the “responsible” writers at the Chicago Tribune already had Benson convicted. Each day this week, another nugget came out about the ordeal down on Lake Travis.
This story has witnesses saying the police treatment of Benson was overkill.
“It was uncalled for, it was ludicrous, no point for it,” said Toby Patch.
Patch said what he saw at the Emerald Point Marina Saturday makes him distrust law enforcement.
“It seemed to me they were manhandling him a little bit,” Patch said. “As they were taking him up the dock, they stopped, he said, ‘I am fine, I can continue walking,’ and they put their legs behind his knees and knocked him over his knees and started hog-carrying him.”
Then he said when the officers got Benson to the parking area, things really got out of hand.
“They ended up — I don’t know why — but laid him on his back, I heard him say, ‘Please don’t pepper spray me, please don’t pepper spray me,’” Patch said.
It seems like the police are getting nervous. Is the department grasping at straws or just trying to embarass Benson? This useless video of Benson being walked into the station has surfaced.

You know that I love the Hot Dog eating contests!! Until last year Kobayashi was without debate, the greatest athlete in the history of the world. Then out of nowhere emerged Ali’s, Frazier.
Joey Chestnut took down Kobayashi at the 2007 national championship. Ali – Frazier II is right around the corner on the 4th of July at Coney Island.
There was a local qualifier contest at New York New York on Thursday. Cofield & Cokin were out there for 4+ hours. What a great time. Rich LeFevre blew away the field with 32 dogs in 10 minutes.
