16 days or so ago the Tampa Tribune wrote a tear-jerking story about how former NFL All-Pro linebacker Keith McCants was trying to get his life back after continuous visits to jail. He told the paper that "You want to kill the pain. You're out of the NFL, they throw you out the door and those expensive prescriptions are gone. They take away your health insurance. The next best thing is street drugs because you're desperate for the pain to go away." He was arrested again - Sunday.
You give a redneck three days off from the sausage manufacturing facility & he's going to get a little crazy. In Ocala, Florida that means attending the 2nd Annual Redneck Games. You figure there will be some beer drinkin', some titty flashin' and maybe a few mud pit belly flops. All good fun, right? Well, in Ocala things got nuts Saturday during a fight when a boy intervened in his dad's ass whoppin' by stabbing his combatant to death. Yeah, that's how Florida rolls, yall. Details - JUMP!

You know how Major League Baseball players wear those pink wristbands on Mother's Day and leave cute messages to run on the video boards between innings? We're guessing Stephanie Lynn Nash's son, if he ever makes the majors, won't be partaking in such moments of love for mom. Steph's poor boy had a traumatic day back in March. He went to baseball practice and hasn't seen his mother since. What happened? Steph went off the deep end - on purpose. Full details...JUMP!
