Beckham’s Got a Whole Lotta Walkin’ To Do



Walk out side-by-side with DAVID BECKHAM in front of a sold-out crowd of 27,000 at The Home Depot Center during the starting lineups of the Real Madrid vs. Los Angeles Galaxy match on Monday, July 18th![ebay link]

Okay. So let me get this straight. I’m supposed to bid for a chance to walk BESIDE David Beckham? Oh no-no-no. I mean if sex or freshly baked cookies were involved (preferably both,) I may have considered starting my bidding at $2,500.00 USD. But strolling along side him doesn’t quite do it for me. Is this even for charity?

I got an idea. Try this on for size…

David, I’ll give you $2,500.00 USD and a cookie, if you let me swiftly kick your ba…uh…soccer balls in front of a sold-out crowd of 27,000 at The Home Depot Center? Take one for the team.

Hurricane Dennis



Pamplona, Spain – Dennis Rodman, legendary basketball player, former NBA Champion and showman, and Ray Sabbatini, a man stricken with Multiple Sclerosis, participated in the annual Running of the Bulls to help fund research to find a cure for the disease.

You can read more about it and watch the video HERE. Wow, I never saw Dennis run that hard when he was on the Bulls. Hey Dennis, here’s an idea: instead of entering wife-carrying competitions and running with the bulls, why don’t you play basketball again? Please? The league needs you back… I’m sick of making Ron Artest jokes.

No Hummer From Dirty Sanchez



Smoking Gun

Radio listener sues after getting toy prize in lieu of real H2

JULY 12–A radio listener has gone to court claiming to have been
snookered by a California station that awarded her a new Hummer H2 in
an April 1 prize contest–and then instead presented a toy replica of
the expensive SUV. Shannon Castillo, 25, apparently did not recognize
the possibility that KBDS, a Bakersfield hip-hop/R&B outlet, was
perpetrating an April Fool’s stunt when she went to the station to
claim her vehicle. Castillo and another female listener thought they
won the $60,000 wheels in a contest during the KBDS morning show hosted
by deejays Chuey Boy and Dirty Sanchez. In fact, the women were given small radio-controlled toys
by Sanchez, who broadcast the presentation live via a cell phone.
Castillo, a mother of two who works in a sandwich shop, last month
filed the below breach of contract/fraud complaint against the radio
station in Kern County Superior Court. For its part, KBDS has not shied
away from publicizing its Hummer hoax.[ continue reading...]
