Drug Dealer thought Pacman was on the Wrong Track

Posting Pacman Jones stories are becoming increasingly tedious, so I have included all the background on his story at the bottom of the post so I can get straight to the juicy point. From NewsChannel 5 in Nashville, Tennessee we have perhaps the most amazing twist to the Pacman Jones saga.

In one of the greater ironies in life, convicted drug dealer and friend of Pacman, Darryl Moore, who made his living by selling illegal products on a daily basis, had enough sense to know that his friend Pacman Jones was on the wrong path. Here are some of the incredible quotes (made by the convicted drug dealer about Pacman) from a wiretap obtained by NewsChannel 5:

“We gotta slow down, man. We gotta get him focused on football, man. He’s focused on too much other s****,”….”You know, I was talkin’ to him the other day about smokin’, and he was like man, if I didn’t smoke I couldn’t take all the stress that I’m dealing with right now,'”…”Fisher’s being as patient as a m*****f***** as he can. Fisher gotta win. Fisher trying to win…He ain’t putting up with that s***,”…”He gotta concentrate on season…that ******* drug test coming up,” he said. “We telling him he needed 33 days before he took his ******* test; dry-out, and he didn’t…that’s let me know right there that he ain’t taking his ****** job serious.”

And for the #1 answer on our list of Top 10 ways to know you’re ‘effin up — a convicted drug dealer is looking out for you — insane!!!


It appears as if Pacman Jones has a strong involvement in the shooting at a strip club in Las Vegas last week in which three people were wounded, one of whom was paralyzed (you can visit ESPN 760 to listen to Evan Cohen’s interview with the parents of one of the shooting victims). Before that, Pacman had a court case dismissed in which he was accused of spitting on a woman at a club. During that same court session, Pacman said he had learned his lesson and was done with trouble. Previously, Pacman had other trouble at clubs and was in court on public drunkenness and disorderly conduct charges. Additionally, Pacman’s ties to a drug dealer led to his car getting confiscated — which he eventually bought back. John Czarnecki of Foxsports.com said in his blog that the Titans were warned about Pacman’s troubles and still drafted him (via NFL Fanhouse). The Tennessean suggests that it will be difficult to prove that Pacman was criminally involved in the Las Vegas shooting.

Daily Darwin: Flushing Man goes Marichal on police officer

And you thought Juan Marichal was the only one who knows how to use a baseball bat in a fight? You were wrong. 21 year old Danny Fernandez of Flushing bashed a police officer over the head with an aluminum baseball bat then stole the officer’s gun and handcuffs. The worst part of the affair were Fernandez’s comments to New York Newsday

I was just doing what everybody wishes they could do, but is too scared to. I thought, ‘This is crazy. Most people won’t do this.’ But I went and did it anyway. I wasn’t looking at the individual, I was looking at what they represented.

Your victim of circumstance is rookie police officer Joseph Cho who is in stable condition with a fractured skull and concussion.

Daily Darwin: Ricardo Mayorga

Anyone who is a regular here – or knows me well – understands that Ricardo Mayorga holds a very special place in my heart. To recap, he shocked more than just “the world” when he handed the previously unbeaten Vernon Forrest (35-0 at the time) his first loss ever, knocking him out in the 3rd round of their January 25th, 2003 fight. In fact, Mayorga’s unorthodox ways are well documented.

Therefore, it’s with great pleasure that I pronounce Ricardo Mayorga as the recipient of the Daily Darwin. Mayorga was just recently released from jail. Some of the recent legal problems he’s had include being

Jailed in Leon, 50 miles from Managua, on charges he never paid a local car dealer $56,000 for four cars. Local prosecutors dismissed the case as a civil matter, and he was to be released. But before he was set free, he was arrested again on Thursday [Feb. 1st] and jailed after three people accused him of writing bad checks worth $87,000. Mayorga was convicted last year of raping a 22-year-old woman at a Managua hotel.

Can anyone really say they’re shocked by this news given the fact that Mayorga smokes in the ring following victories, and is rumored to drink beer and go out partying while in training for fights? Clearly I’m not. I bet boxing promoters can’t wait to get him in the ring. After all, you know the formula right? (KO potential) x (# of Arrests) = pay per view buys.

Just for kicks, I dug up the post-fight interview with Mayorga smoking in the ring following his 3rd round TKO of Forrest on YouTube. Here it is (the smoking is at the end of the clip):

Daily Darwin: ATM Urinator

Coming from Metro in the UK, some total drunkard idiot in Croatia pissed off he couldn’t buy any beer because he was out of money, took out his frustrations

51-year-old Vladimir Mesic was taken into custody this weekend after climbing on to a litter bin so he could urinate on a cashpoint machine that had swallowed his bank card in the city of Split. He then dropped his trousers and tried to leave a deposit of his own on the machine. It was during this attempt that Mesic was arrested.

Our man Mesic told police that was his way of showing his dissatisfaction. I’ve had my food get stuck in a vending machine before, but I’ve never taken out my frustration by pissing on the machine. Maybe it’s a vindicating feeling. It is worth mentioning that former tennis player Goran “the moron” Ivanisevic also hails from Split, and anytime I have a chance to work Goran Ivanisevic into a post you better believe I will.

Daily Darwin: Chewbacca Arrested!

This is a new feature on the site that we’ll be doing – a daily nomination for the Darwin Award – named for someone who commits an act so stupid that they would best serve humanity by not reproducing. Today’s nomination comes from Hollywood, CA:

LAPD officers arrested ‘Star Wars’ street performer Frederick Evan Young, 44, of Los Angeles in his furry brown wookiee costume Thursday on a charge of misdemeanor battery for allegedly head-butting a tour guide who complained about Young’s treatment of two visitors from Japan.

Unfortunately this has led to some strife amongst the impersonator crowd. I have an idea, why don’t you get a real job?

Super Bowl Want Ads

I’m posting up over at NBX today, so you can travel over there when you’re done checking out my site to get your gambling fix on.  In case I haven’t mentioned it before, I’m a big supporter of what they got going on – they have a fantasy sportsbook working meaning it’s all points based, no money involved.  With all the off-shores sportsbooks closing, not to mention most people having jobs and families to worry about, it’s a great alternative if you want to get some action on the game. 

Sometimes their media content can be even more thrilling than betting in their sportsbook.  Earlier this week they chased down some of the best ads posted on Craig’s List - that’s always great for a chuckle.  For my money, it doesn’t get much nastier than #5.  Enjoy

He’s Responsible for Children?

Yes I know this is a sports site, but sometimes mainstream stories are deserving of our attention.  Big ups to GP John for the link to this story, a high school principle faces lewd conduct charges.  From the L.A. Times:

“The principal of an Orange County high school was placed on leave last week after his arrest on suspicion of lewd conduct in a public place, according to a school official and police.  Brent Bailey, principal of El Modena High School in Orange, was arrested at 2:30 p.m. Dec. 27 in a public restroom near Brea Dam in Fullerton during a sting operation, said police Lt. Doug Cave. He said police regularly patrol the area because it is known as a meeting place for public sexual activity.”

What an excellent example for our impressionable youth.  Just the type of role-model we need regulating high-school aged kids and deciding on suspensions. 

For the record, there’s nothing quite like getting a hummer in a dam, so I’m told.
