ESPN Tort Center?-I remember an old Earl Warren line-"I always turn to the sports pages first, which records people's accomplishments. The front page has nothing but man's failures. " Not any more. A quick glance at the sports headlines has slugger Albert Pujols about to be suspended for slugging a pitcher for some chin music, Chris Webber pleading to criminal contempt charges in order to keep his butt out of jail, ousted Alabama football coach Mike Price suing the school for $20M (great behavior to endear you to your next school, Mike) and further stuff on Kobe's rape case. That leaves off the Randy Simon story; the Pirate first baseman bopped a sausage mascot with his bat last week, knocking her off her feet. Simon was charged with disorderly conduct and fined by a Milwaukee court. Yes, you can expect the wurst behavior for athletes these days.
