Your Monday Morning Roundup: Loon Spotted, Topanga in Underwear, Fights, and Freddie Got Fingered

Kyle Scott - March 11, 2013

Somehow we’re already at that point where it feels like spring training has been going on forever. Strangely, though, due to a slightly earlier start and the World Baseball Classic that you probably aren’t watching, we’re still three weeks away from real, actual baseball. Thankfully, March Madness heats up this week and should carry us through.

Let’s hit it!

 

But first, a word from our sponsors:

– Thanks to that MAJOR SNOWSTORM WE DIDN’T GET LAST WEEK, Jim Carrey Quizzo at Drinker’s Tavern had to be postponed until this Wednesday at 8:30. Details here. And get .75 Miller High Lifes every Thursday at Lucy’s.

– Be sure to check out Bernie Parent earlier that same evening as he joins Bill Clement at the Chickie’s and Pete’s in Audubon at 6 p.m. for “Hockey World,” which airs on 1490 WCBC. I'll also be hosting Sports Movie Quizzo Thursday at 8 p.m. at the Chickie's and Pete's in Drexel Hill.

– As we said above, March Madness kicks off this week and there is no better place for winners than GodFatherLocks.com. Be sure to follow them on Twitter (@GodFatherLocks) for daily picks. These guys are a great sponsor and even better picker. I’d highly advise you to stick with them throughout the month. You can get 30% off a weekly subscription by entering code “Crossing.”

Meet Simon Gagne this Saturday at the Sports Vault in the King of Prussia Mall from 4:30 – 6. Details and tickets here.

– Naked local girls that you may know, who are naked, not wearing anything, being just so very naked. Check out Girls of Philly. This link is suitable for work.

– Monkey’s Uncle in Doylestown has an awesome selection of retro Phillies and Flyers gear. Or shop online and use code BROAD to get $10 off orders of $50 or more.

– Our newest sponsor, Tour Golf Revolution allows you to play competitive golf just like the PGA pros. Compete against friends and strangers with similar handicaps to see where you rank on the local leaderboard. Very cool service worth checking out.

 

The roundup:

– Reader Murph spotted a loon… again with his Ferrari, again at a gas station, and again with his grey hoodie:

– We told you about this last March, and now Freddie Mitchell has pleaded guilty to a tax scheme in Florida: [FOX News]

Mitchell pleaded guilty in federal court in Orlando, Fla., Friday to a single count of conspiracy to file a false claim. He faces a maximum prison sentence of 10 years and a maximum fine of $250,000.

Prosecutors say Mitchell and two others concocted a scheme that involved filing a false tax return on behalf of another professional athlete.

 

– Tyson Gillies went apeshit during the Mexico-Canada brawl

Must-watch DeAndre Jordan dunk. Play of the year, and it won’t even be close.

– Philly.com has scenes from Erin Express, which is just another way of saying a bunch of pictures of hot red-faced coeds giving you F-me stares.

– Charlie Manuel was hit by a tricycle yesterday (is there video of this somewhere?): [Philly.com

The Astros, like most teams, organize gimmicky in-between innings contests. One of them was a two-man tricycle race from dugout to dugout, along the warning track.

"I saw him coming," Manuel said. "I thought, 'We better get over.' He got me. Big ol' three-wheeler."

The tricycle ran over Manuel's toes. The manager jumped up to avoid further contact. Everyone around him, including Dubee and Billmeyer, could not stop laughing.

 

The Sixers are a fucking joke.

Freddie Mitchell is Shaking His Damn Head at You, Philadelphia

Kyle Scott - August 22, 2012

Screen Shot 2012-08-22 at 9.03.37 AM

Freddie Mitchell, a somewhat underwhelming pro himself, has some thoughts on our thoughts about Eagles backup quarterback Nick Foles, who is quickly taking Philadelphia by storm after two successful preseason showings (I just keep thinking, Bobby Hoying). 

Here’s what Frederal Express wrote on his Facebook page, as dutifully screen captured by star CB rader (@JakePavorsky):

I'm not sure what's better: the status update or the chicks grabbing breasteseseses in the photo 

Maybe Mitchell’s qualified to make that judgement about this fan base, however. Because, you know, we once thought he was pretty good, too. Smh.

Freddie Mitchell Denies Guilt in Tax Fraud Scheme, Says Drew Gooden Scammed Out of $50,000

Kyle Scott - March 6, 2012

Freddie Mitchell responded to an indictment against him in a tax fraud case. Here’s what he told Howard Eskin (@HowardEskin), as tweeted by Eskin: [edited for readability]

Fred Mitchell told me he gave info on other two guys to feds and"they double crossed him.” People from IRS told Mitchell to amend taxes and [be] OK. Mitchell in process of getting attorney before he turns himself in. Never met two guys that were arrested and connected from friend in LA. Fred Mitchell talked to IRS agents two years ago and not since. Mitchell was told by agents "you will be fine” and even let them bug his phone to help. Fred Mitchell also told me Milwaukee Bucks Drew Gooden one of players scammed in tax fraud and called IRS. According to Mitchell, claims innocence but charged Mitchell because he introduced players to arrested guys, and FM feels he got scammed. And Mitchell telling me "got 50,000 from Drew Gooden thinking it was legit" and found out later "he got scammed," told that to IRS agents. Mitchell told me he will turn himself in next couple days. Waiting for his attorney to set it all up. Believes he will prove innocence.

 

Why do I not believe everything FredEX says?

His defense, it seems, is that he merely referred athletes to other defendants. Unfortunately for FredEX, a company managed solely by him, Chameleon Enterprises LLC, appears to be the umbrella organization under which the tax fraud scheme operated.

A Federal Indictment Against Freddie Mitchell was Released Yesterday

Kyle Scott - March 6, 2012

Screen Shot 2012-03-06 at 12.11.54 PM

Hey, who had Freddie Mitchell next up in the former Philly athlete most likely to do jail time pool?

I had Terrell Owens – mostly because he’s close – but Mitchell was holding strong in the number two spot. 

Here’s the deal: A grand jury indictment released yesterday and obtained by FOX Philly shows that FredEX did, in fact, fail to deliver (did I bury the pun too far down, or is that just right?).

He managed a company, Chameleon Enterprises LLC (tell me that doesn’t sound slippery), which falsified tax returns for professional athletes.

Mitchell would recruit the athletes – specifically one mentioned in the indictment with the initials "A.G." (QUICK- SOME ATHLETES WITH “A.G.” as their initials– ANTONIO GATES, A.J. GREEN? WHOM?!) – and accept $100,000 in downpayment based on a false claim that his company would obtain millions of dollars in what it knew to be false tax refunds based on false documents it falsified to trick clients into allowing the company to have false claims awarded falsely.

This is a true statement: Mitchell’s company wasn’t very honest.

Basically, Chameleon tricked athletes into paying them a downpayment so they could falsify tax refunds on their behalf. They would even claim that Chameleon paid the client millions in wages and that the IRS had, by extension, withheld millions from those wages, which were now owed to the client in the form of a tax refund.

FOX Philly has more details on the dollar amounts. View the full indictment of Freddie Mitchell here.

Freddie Freeman Was Mad Last Night

Kyle Scott - May 14, 2011

Buzz_braves

… for many reasons, not the least of which was because he looks like Buzz from Home Alone.

Antonio Bastardo, centaur, struck out Buzz with the bases loaded after starting him out 3-0.

Looking like Buzz doesn't bode well for Freeman long-term. But you have to get past the jump to see that for yourself. Buzz, your future, woof!

Freddie Mitchell Would Like to be Felated on a Date, Please

Kyle Scott - January 10, 2011

Freddie_mitchell
Oh yeah, that's nice.

Freddie Mitchell is all over the place this week.  He will be on Millionaire Matchmaker tomorrow night at 9 P.M. on Bravo.  Of course, this begs the question: Freddie Mitchell is still a millionaire?

Hulu.com has a short preview of the show, in which FredEX would like to know if it is OK to get a BJ on a date.

MM: You never give a woman cash and a credit card.  You can buy them jewley, that's how you get BJs.  

Frederal Express:  Am I allowed to get a BJ on, like, the date?

 

The People's Champ doesn't do pleasantries.

Oh yeah, and he's coachable.

Video after the jump.

Freddie Mitchell Weighs in on 4th and 26, Again

Kyle Scott - January 7, 2011

Freddie_mitchell_fur

The Freddie Mitchell re-irrelevance tour continued today. FredEX was on 610 with Howard Eskin to discuss… wait for it… 4th and 26.

Not much new from what Timmy Mac brought us earlier in the week on Philly Sports Daily, but there was this:

Philly is breast fed on Eagles football.  

 

Taste that milky goodness.

Then he took aim at his haters (not Favre directly):

You got these guys showing their penis and stuff on text message when they're married.  That's like pot calling the kettle black.

 

And further proved his media whoredom:

Any time you call me, I'm on, I'm fully committed to 610. Any time you need an athlete that can put a sentence together.

 

Nothing better to do since substitute teaching didn't work out, I guess.  

He will be on Millionaire Matchmaker on on Tuesday.  That should be fun.

FredEX on the Anniversary of 4th and 26, Kills Five

Kyle Scott - January 4, 2011

Freddie_mitchell_4th_26

Timmy Mac over at Philly Sports Daily has the story.  So full of win.

First of all Donovan’s pass was behind me and it was wobbly, but I had to take advantage of the opportunity that was presented to me. Right when I caught the pill, I kind of knew I had the yardage right away. I looked at the sticks and to see where I was at and I knew I got it. I felt like Michael Jordan hitting a last-second shot or Tiger Woods sinking a 50-foot putt.

Then I had to pull out the belt…

That was for the crowd. Not a single person left that stadium when we were down, and I had to do something for them. Hugh Douglas used to say, “That’s the People’s Champ. He does it every time for the fans.” I had to put the belt on for them. I was brought up like Brian Dawkins, with a love for Philly. When he heard the Eagles fans scream that was like church music to him. That’s how I was. I was doing it for love while Donovan was doing it to prove people wrong for booing him.

 

In a way, I kind of miss this man.  Read the rest and his not-so-thinly veiled criticism of McNabb at PSD.
