I heard the Cubs are interested.


Brad Evans just suggested he should be a speculative pickup in NL only leagues. Great, now I'll never get him with my #8 waiver priority...

What shocks me is that people do not have better things to do than pull these stunts.

The brilliance is that they didn't even work hard on making this realistic. Litterally, they froze a rubber bigfoot outfit.... BAM! They have America by the balls. There is no way they thought that would work out as well as it did... no way.

In that article Knapp posted it says that one of the duo, the police officer, lost his job. Presumably they didn't make much money, the DVD was not available prior to the hoax getting "exposed". So... Unless you consider the proverbial 15 minutes of fame your goal in life I would say this didn't work out well at all. It actually blew up in the police officer's face.

He'll find another job. What he'll most likely never find again is an opportunity to get a week of national coverage and more traffic to his website than he could ever imagine.

I like their photo gallery. Most of the photos are a bunch of hunters standing around.
