Pajiba After Dark: Rock You Like a Hurricane

Yesterday there was some big story that came out about a University of Miami booster engaging in illegal boosting activities. Some of you (Pookie) remember that I am a University of Miami alumnus. Now, I don’t have any direct connection to the issue at hand since I was never an athlete while in college and for some reason there are no orchestra boosters who are willing to take the musicians out for drinks and debauchery. (Seriously, someone get on that like, yesterday.) While I do remain skeptical about the word of a man who was convicted for basically lying extremely convincingly about financial matters to a whole lot of people, I will admit that I don’t doubt that he took some players out and bought them gifts. He’s made some pretty serious allegations beyond that and I think they should be fully investigated. Also, I don’t think Donna Shalala should resign because she’s awesome no matter what some dude with a pathological need to buy friendship from 18 year olds might have done. Here’s your Thursday night TV:

8:00pm: “Fox Sports Special: NFL Preseason: Philadelphia at Pittsburgh” on Fox. I’ve noticed that of the Pennsylvanian sports teems, the Steelers seem to have far more fans nationwide than the Eagles. Is that just because Pittsburgh is a shithole that people flee as soon as they possibly can or because there’s a certain kind of person who knows that rooting for Pittsburgh just pisses all kids of people off and engages in it for that reason alone?

The fact that I know anything about it is not because I’ve sought that information out but just because I spend way too much time on the internet and once that shit gets in your head IT NEVER LEAVES. I will be the 80 year old who can’t find the glasses she’s wearing but can remember that once upon a time Jennifer Love Hewitt dated some guy who lost on “The Bachelorette.”
