Observations and opinions of W-C-L family members (mostly), who enjoy all things sports (except maybe NASCAR and cricket).
OJ and whoever thought writing that book about how he "would" have done it. I don't know any other moronic atheletes, but I'm sensing this entry will have great comments
here are a few: Roy Tarpley, Michael Vick, Todd Marinovich's dad, Steve Howe, John Daly, and Marv Albert.
These guys are my sports heroes; yet they either already are or will soon be considered sports morons:Ricky WilliamsVince Young

Anyone remember Switzer's introductory press conference as Cowboys head coach? That was more than a little bizarre. Think he was packing heat? In the golf world, Woody "Aqua Man" Austin is a little out there. Love his reactions to missed putts.
Woody is out there. Thanks to Brett for pacman Jones I just couldn't think of his name. I suppose I should have distinguished between guys who are stupid and guys who are just bad guys. Some are both of course but, Mickey waters was a good guy, just dumb as a post. Ricky Henderson was just a dim bulb not a bad citizen. Favorite story of Henderson is that about 6 months after oakland had given him his initial bonus check of 1 million dollars they went to visit him to ask why he had not cashed it and found it framed and hanging on his wwall.
How could I forget Nate Newton, busted for selling pot, and then busted again 2 weeks later for...selling pot.
