Pest of the Week


What's one of the greatest aspects of sports? It's all the drama that comes right along with the games and events. And sometimes they can be a tad annoying, so here is your chance to rant.

It's Pest of the Week, sponsored by Advantage Termite and Pest Control of Quincy. Make sure to listen every Friday morning.


(December 10 - December 16)


Stun gun not work?

  • Geno Hayes -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker was shot with a stun gun before being arrested early Monday morning after a disturbance at a nightclub, The Tampa Tribune reported. The 23-year-old was shocked with the gun for refusing police orders after he was ejected from the Blue Martini club at International Plaza, in Tampa. A police report described Hayes as "loud [and] verbally abusive" while threatening staff and officers after becoming angry when an acquaintance was refused entry to the club. Hayes was himself then turned away, before attempting to return to the club to retrieve a credit card he said he left behind. Staff allowed his friend entry to find the card, but requested Hayes remain at a nearby store. According to the report, Hayes reacted angrily before an officer ordered him "to walk away from the front door," but the linebacker "assumed an aggressive stance and refused to leave." Police said he was warned he would be shocked unless he cooperated, but persisted and was fired at with the stun gun. His clothing proved too thick for the shock to ground him, forcing an officer to tackle the 6-foot-3, 225-pound linebacker before taking him into custody.


My leg! My leg!

  • Sal Alosi -- Need to say anything more about this idiot coach for the Jets? I still think it's one big cover up.


Sex, Drugs, and...

  • Iowa football -- Everybody involved. Head coach, players, fans, and even the administration. From the top to the bottom. What a joke this past week.


This may be a tad uncalled for

  • Random Desoto County HS Bball player -- Just watch this video and you will see why.



  • Ross Ramsey -- Contrary to a political column in the New York Times on Saturday, in which Ramsey referred to Earl Weaver in the past tense and is not dead. "Texas Democrats have become the Baltimore Orioles of politics," wrote Ross Ramsey. "Somewhere in heaven, Earl Weaver and Ann Richards are comparing notes on what went wrong with the teams they left behind." Mike Klingaman of the Baltimore Sun called Weaver, 80, at his home in Florida to notify him of the bad news: "I'll be damned," said the Hall of Famer, who managed the Orioles to four American League pennants and a World Series title. "All I can do is say, that's false. "I'm still here, although my knees have given out, so I don't play golf anymore. I've always said that there were two places that I wouldn't mind dying. One was Memorial Stadium; the other, the golf course. "Now I've got to wait forever [to go], because both of those places are gone.."


WINNER: Sal Alosi -- This cat was just a moron.
