Ugh, why is it that a Tuesday after a long weekend is worse than a Monday after a regular one? On one hand, you’d think that the extra day of freedom would be revitalizing, but on the other, it’s also an extra day of engaging in exhausting behavior. Of course, I spent my Labor Day flipping between marathons of Friends and SVU, so I’m not really sure what my excuse is for dragging ass today. But no matter how tired I am this morning, I’m still doing better than these people.
It’s a bit hard to feel bad for a guy who is worth $150 million bucks, but still…Wayne seemed to be having a bit of a rough weekend.
First, on Friday, police were called to Wayne’s Miami home after reports of a shooting, which was later reported to be a hoax – the second one in 18 months.
The hoax was originally believed to have started following a tweet from Wayne’s account on Friday night:
But others have hypothesized that the problem is really the rapper’s clash with his label, Cash Money Records, over the release of his album Tha Carter V. This particular theory was supposed when Lil Wayne jumped on stage at Drake’s Houston concert on Sunday night and yelled “Fuck Cash Money!”
Whatever the reason for Weezy’s foul mood, celebs jumped up to support Wayne on Twitter:
Nice that Wayne’s got lots of support…although, he could probably do without Chris Brown on his bandwagon. Dude’s got enough problems of his own.
Honestly, the entire USC football team probably had a bad weekend after losing 52-6 to Alabama on Saturday. But Ruffin was the only player that was ejected from the game, after stomping on the groin of ‘Bama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick. After fielding an Alabama kickoff at the 20-yard-line, Adoree’ Jackson was helping up Fitzpatrick when Ruffin just stomped on Fitzpatrick’s groin.
Actually, after watching that, it was probably Fitzpatrick who had the bad weekend, despite the win (and his cup).

This Teenager In Sydney, Australia
A few weeks ago, I was driving home from work and a (what I consider to be) giant spider crawled up from my dashboard onto my windshield. I screamed bloody murder, but I managed to pull over into a parking lot and kill the arachnid. Which was a slightly better ending to the-spider-in-the-car situation than this teenager in Sydney experienced.
The 18 year old woman was actually parked next to a boat ramp on Saturday morning when a huntsman spider dropped into her lap from the visor. The woman jumped out of the car to get the spider off of her and this happened:
Now, before we judge her too harshly, LiveScience says that “The average huntsman spider species is about 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) long with a leg span of up to 5 inches (12.7 cm).” Yeah….I’d probably let my car roll into the ocean too.
Fugitives apparently have a thing about pictures. Last week, an 18-year-old fugitive asked news outlets to use a more flattering picture of her, as opposed to her mugshot when reporting on her escape from police custody. And now this week comes the story of a guy who liked his mugshot so much he used it as his profile pic on Facebook…leading to him getting arrested.
Check out this Facebook post from the Stuart (FL) Police Department:
Yearwood will have plenty of time to contemplate the valid points raised by the police post, as he is being held on $20,000 bail.
The San Francisco 49ers
I’m not going to touch the Colin Kaepernick issue with a ten-foot-pole, but however you feel about it, we can all agree it’s surely been a pain-in-the-ass for 49ers’ management. And then came the weekend, and the actions of fullback Bruce Miller.
According to The New York Daily News:
Police told KTVU in California that Miller allegedly attempted to check into the Fisherman’s Wharf Marriott Hotel on Sunday night, but was turned away because there were no rooms available.
He reportedly returned Monday morning and knocked on a guest’s door. The occupant answered and told him he had the wrong room, which is when Miller allegedly attacked him and his 70-year-old father, who was also staying in the room, according to the report.
Sources told KTVU that the father was punched in the face before he and his son were taken to a hospital. Miller reportedly fled the scene, but was later found and arrested.
Hours before the incident, Miller posted this pic on Insta:
The caption is now a bit ironic, as Miller will no longer be spending his Sundays with his boys of the last five seasons. The 49ers cut Miller on Monday afternoon..
