You know what we hate to see out of rich, famous guys who used to make mad cash for spewing stupidity between 5:30-6 every night into the homes of millions of single men? We hate that the guy in mention, former ESPNer Jay Mariotti, got so crazy over some chick that he was arrested for domestic abuse in 2010 (got out of those charges) and now faces 3 felony counts of stalking and assault – on the same woman.
Here is what we can decipher from Jay without knowing him besides what we see on TV: the guy hasn’t slept with many women and things get ugly when the ladies break it off with the blowhard.
Former Sun-Times sports columnist Jay Mariotti was charged Wednesday with felony stalking and assault after reportedly confronting his former girlfriend the same day a court ordered him to stay away from her.
According to a Los Angeles Times report, Mariotti pleaded not guilty to felony charges of stalking, corporal injury on a spouse or domestic partner and assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury. He also was charged with two misdemeanor counts of disobeying a court order.
So why feel sorry for him? Because, as a fellow man, you know the train wreck is coming. You know he’s going do something stupid because he has to be right. He can’t possibly let that chick get the best of him. He has to win.
Now he’s going to spend thousands on a lawyer, go through an ugly court setting and his career in the media is toast. It’s sad.
(Secretly we’re hoping that he’ll need a rebound gig and Busted Coverage/Coed Media Group can land him at a discount rate. Jay, call us. BC is hiring.)
