We get a massive amount of tips in our inbox each week. Some are pretty interesting, but don't get published for one reason or another.
It's usually because they're just so absurd or really lack even the most tenuous of news angles to give them the go-ahead. Other times it's because they're just absolute horseshit. But every Friday until we get sick of running them, we'll present to you some of these not-so-shiny gems. All items should be treated as [Sic'd]. Enjoy...
Well Thank God She Had The Salad
Commenter [redacted] here. Just wanted everyone to know that EA digs the taco bar in the press box as much as the rest of us media schlubs. She is elusive.
Needless to say, press box Mexican food sucks at Rosenblatt. Pretty sure she went with the salad before she peaced.
Sir, You're Lucky You Weren't Arrested For Stalking
More gratuitous EA from Commenter [redacted]. She was taking a photo of an LSU player (hard to ID with the championship tshirts covering their jerseys) with a toddler on his shoulders onfield after the LSU win tonight.
Actually, This Guy Will Get Arrested First
A Message To John Kruk Aka "KRUKIE"
If you even read this (i'm sure you get a ton of tips) but my tip is what john kruk (watch out fat boy, you might break that chair) apparently said about the colorado rockies on baseball tonight, because here was the quote on espn's mlb page.
Reaching The Peak
Colorado has won 17 of 18, but John Kruk wonders whether the Rockies can continue to climb or if this is the top of the mountain.
first of all john kruk is a dick. everyone who is a true rockies fan knows that hurdle should've been fired after the world series run so while they are playing very well and im pumped, they should have been doing this for a while. anyways i dont expect you to use this, i mostly am drunk and wanted to say FUCK YOU KRUKIE!!!!
I Guess She's A Fan

Wait — No Mischa Barton Interview? Drew Will Be Pissed
We have a new thriller with a football angle called "Homecoming" opening July 17. I wanted to see if you'd be interested in covering.
In it, a star quarterback now on Scholarship at Northwestern (Matt Long) returns to his hometown for their homecoming game. However, his ex-high school sweetheart (Mischa Barton) is devastated to to see that he brought his new college girlfriend with him (Jessica Stroup). Soon, she finds herself going to violent extremes to win Matt back. It's a fun, guilty pleasure thriller that plays like a teen version of MISERY meets FATAL ATTRACTION.
Please let me know your thoughts. Even a highlight or mention would be great. We also have the Director Morgan J. Freeman (not the actor) and Actor Matt Long available for interview.
If you're interested I can send a screener.
YES. Still On. For Now
