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...

Michael Phelps' Stripper Friend

Some details you may (or may not) want about the Mike Phelps Stripper story thats making the rounds today, I used to work with the gal at a club in West Virginia a couple years back. She got the tits about two-three years ago, then went to Baltimore to work for better money.

Last I heard she was at Ritz Cabaret in Baltimore. Here is her myspace. http://www.myspace.com/spanishgrl .

Don't know if you care, but if you do a follow up post I figured the details might help.

Oh, and she gives a SENSATIONAL lapdance.

At Least Mario Williams Is No Longer Speeding

saw mario williams at a club this week in houston. Apparently he likes his girls big. the girl who was all up on him the whole night was at least 6'2", white, and not skinny, but not too thick either. Also i heard from people who know the family he bought his house from that when he bought the house he paid for it with a suitcase full of cash. BALLIN.

Semi-Heated Email Exchange With A Stranger


I have some information that you might find very interesting, ready ? Here it is. You're a fucking bottom feeder, you're no better then the pond scum that work for the enquirer. Jason Whitlock may be the biggest asshole in the business but he is right about one thing, your site is the lowest of the low.



Thanks Josh! Helluva email.


you're welcome


And what prompted this exactly? Are you just getting around to
Whitlock's column now or did something else aggravate you?



I'm just generally aggravated by the likes of Jason Whitlock, Bill Simmons, Peter Vecsey and sites like yours that exist solely for small minded mean spirited faux journalism. You know, the idea that everything goes and I'm gonna take out my personal beefs and feuds with others in my columns and or on my websites. Is that clear enough for you ? Josh



Not really. Maybe you should lift some weights?


Ha Ha, I play pickup basketball with guys who act like bigger assholes then most sports writers so the weight lifting isn't necessary. I appreciate you getting back to me, most wouldn't even have the decency to do that, However don't you feel that your site maybe sometimes engages in a very mean spirited approach to flushing out news ? To be fair you're no different then anybody else out there but that doesn't necessarily make it right. Just one man's opinion




Thanks for the tip, boss!
