Sunday Roundup

• Former Denver Broncos tight end Clarence Kay was arrested AGAIN. The eight year NFL vet has been arrested 12 times between 1984 and 2000. This time he faces a misdemeanor domestic violence charge for allegedly ramming his girlfriend's head into a carport.

• Los Angeles Kings forward Sean Avery squared off with Mighty Ducks of Anaheim television analyst Brian Hayward earlier this week. Avery took offense to some remarks Hayward had said about Avery on a Ducks broadcast. The two squared off in the Kings locker room. "You're the reason the league doesn't have a national television deal. You're a (terrible) announcer and you were a (terrible) player," Avery said during the exchange. Hayward’s response: "How would you know? When I played, you were in your third year of eighth grade."

Fore Sale
Fore the love of god!
• Speaking of the Kings...the pregame dominators turned another hot October and November into a season of discontent with their elimination from the Stanley Cup Playoffs this week. The Vancouver Canucks followed suit with an implosion of their own.

• Carrie Mae Stoudemire, 50, mother of Phoenix Suns star Amare Stoudemire could face up to 4 1/2 years in jail if convicted for two counts of aggravated DUI stemming from an accident last October. She was on probation for two other aggrevated DUI's at the time. She also gave arresting officers a fake driver's license. Stoudemire remains under house arrest until her trial begins in June.

• Yet another reason why the Orioles won't win the AL East any time soon. A home run hit by Javier Lopez on Sunday turned into an RBI single and an out after Lopez passed Miguel Tejada on the base path.

• And another story that should make North American professional athletes kiss the tails of their fans. Bulgaria's Botev Plovdiv soccer team needed a police escort after supporters in 30 cars chased down their bus while returning from a 2-1 loss to Sofia. Players ignited the ire of their fans after flipping the bird at them following a heated discussion on the loss.

• Two children were injured at a minor-league baseball game promotion that turned into the a big fat mess. The West Michigan Whitecaps dropped $1000 at Fifth Third Ballpark, then allowed children ranging from five to twelve to dash for the cash. A 7-year-old was trampled in the stampede.

• A cricket match in Bangladesh turned nasty, when a group of reporters and photographers squared off with the local police chartered with guarding the event. The media group was upset that a policeman had assaulted a photographer earlier in the 3-day test match. A good old fashioned cricket donnybrook broke out, resulting in several injuries to the reporters (apparently pencils aren’t as effective as batons). One reporter underwent surgery to stop a severe head injury.

• Baroid the Steroid's beaning in Los Angeles on Sunday had nothing to do with the alleged drug induced advantage that he's used to pound home runs off Dodgers pitching. It was in retaliation for the pitch Jeff Kent took off the dome earlier in the game. The events could make Giants-Dodgers matchups worth watching for the first time since Jon Roseboro retired.
