Despite my criticism of the Tigers, I have to give them credit. That was one hell of a performance against Texas.

Too Funny!

Eyewitness News reports that a draft report on alleged blackmail plot has been given to Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton.

Sorry Tiger fans. You have to pay for that recliner you’ve purchased to watch the Tigers win the “big dance”. Attorney General Robert Cooper says Ashley Furniture can’t honor its promise legally. Yet another twist in the Memphis Tigers saga!

1. Sex scandals improve your mayor’s “street cred”.
