Add it to the collection of jerseys, shoes, and Rolexes that they stole last week?


Lol. :-b Nice one! ;-D

For those who are doing it because they care, I give a big thumbs up to. ;-D

For those who only want publicity :-t !

How to tell them apart? I dunno. :-S
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

ps - What is the proper way to pluralize Rolex?


Rolexen ;-)

For those that just don't get it...think about the plural of ox....and if you still don't get it...there's no hope for you.


I will say its curious that the two mentioned are Kobe and TO, but really, its just cherrypicking for guys that have a bad image.

First I see pics of Kobe down at the Alamodome signing autographs and shaking hands then during the football game last night they went into a big thing about how Terrell Owens flew down to the Alamodome to meet play with the kids and hand out food.

It seems like every athlete with media problems is using this as an excuse to rehab their images. A coupld of hours shaking hands and signing autographs is not going to cut it. This pisses me off more than anything. Seriously, what is a person who's home and entire city has been destroyed going to do with Kobe's autograph?


This pisses you off more than anything? I highly doubt that.


You are right. Ben Stein pisses me off more. There are only several hundred people in the cafe that will understand that one. :-C

Ben Stein sucks.

Sean Penn rescued dozens of people in a little boat

Al Gore rescued over 270 victims because he could afford to help. http://www.cnn.com/2005/POLITICS/09/09/katrina.gore.ap/


There have been some truly inspiring stories to come out of New Orleans in the last few weeks. Don't sour on every celebrity.

Al Gore could afford it because he made all that money inventing the INTERNET! :-b
