[Headline from DRJ]

LA TimesWhy are Beyonce fans sending death threats to the Warriors majority owner’s wife?:

Death threats? Really, Beyhive?

That’s reportedly one of the ways Beyonce’s devoted fans are reacting to a viral video of Nicole Curran, wife of Golden State Warriors majority owner Joseph Lacob, leaning over Queen Bey to interact with the music superstar’s husband, rapper Jay-Z, during Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night.

Curran told ESPN she had asked their courtside guests if they wanted anything to drink. When Jay-Z requested a vodka soda (Beyonce wanted only water), Curran wondered if he wanted a lime with it. Because of the noise at Oracle Arena, Curran said, she leaned over so she could hear his response.

This story has it all — fame, money, sports, celebrities, and the threat of danger.

USC’s 2010 Media Guide

Filed under: Sports — DRJ @ 8:40 pm



[Guest post by DRJ]

Are you ready for college football? I’m always ready and after a little housecleaning, USC may be ready, too:

“[T]he Trojans’ media guide has undergone some late-breaking revisionism to account for Reggie Bush’s vanishing Heisman Trophy, apparently overnight.”

Before-and-after media guides are shown at the link.

Paris Hilton Arrested? (Updated: Not True)

Filed under: Crime,Sports — DRJ @ 3:39 pm



[Guest post by DRJ]

Paris Hilton has reportedly been arrested in South Africa for smoking marijuana during the Holland-Brazil World Cup quarterfinals match but there is no confirmation from Hilton. Perhaps she should have tried nutmeg.

Also, the Dutch upset Brazil.

UPDATE: False alarm. TMZ reports Hilton was questioned but the investigation involved someone else.

Don Coryell (1924-2010)

Filed under: Sports — DRJ @ 10:02 pm



[Guest post by DRJ]

Don Coryell, a “founding father” of the modern pro football passing game, died today in California. Coryell’s high-power, load-’em-up offenses were exciting in an era when most offenses were pretty dull. I consider Coryell an originator of the West Coast offense that Bill Walsh perfected.

My condolences to his family, and my thanks to Coach Coryell for some great games.
