The Atlanta Braves are off to a hot start despite their supposed lineup woes. Starting their season with a road trip to Miami to play the Marlins, the Braves looked to be in trouble. Lots of analysts expected Miami to be one of the teams to beat in the National League, and the Braves to be at the bottom of the barrel- but here we are. The Braves swept the Marlins with a convincing performance. However, lets not get our hopes up. it’s still too early to tell if Atlanta will be a contender. It’s fun to dream about a miracle year, though.
Hawks ballers Pero Antic and Thabo Sefolosha were arrested in New York Tuesday night, and Chris Copeland was stabbed outside of the 1 Oak nightclub in New York City. Copeland reportedly declined a promotional deal outside of the club, and was promptly stabbed. Antic and Sefolosha were arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. According to authorities, it took four officers to get Sefolosha in handcuffs, which is actually my favorite part of this story. The Hawks players were reportedly just trying to shield Copeland from people who were crowding and trying to take photos of him, and were released Wednesday upon recognition.
Former NFL lineman, Kwame Harris was involved in two hit-and-runs this week, and later turned up asleep in a running car. The police have reported that Harris was intoxicated and tried to bite a couple of cops when they confronted him. I can’t say I would have the gumption to try to arrest the six-and-a-half foot tall behemoth, especially after seeing him try to bite the first cop. Harris has had a handful of other run-ins with the law since being released from the Oakland Raiders in 2008, but this is by far the most interesting. The NFL retiree’s lawyer has stated that he will be hiring a new lawyer, who will then help Harris decide if he will comment on the arrest.
