WHERE LIFE AND SPORTS INTERSECT

Eddy Curry was robbed in his Burr Ridge home last week. Burr Ridge is a suburb of Chicago. Curry is (allegedly) an NBA player. Interestingly, Antoine Walker was robbed in Chicago a few weeks ago. He is an NBA player. In both cases armed men entered the home, tied up the athelete and others present and took money and jewels. Now the police think that perhaps the robberies are connected. Do you think? Someone got the bright idea that robbing NBA stars might be easy money and has targeted two of them so far? Do you think? Jeez.

Meanwhile, apparently one of Michael Vick's co-defendants pled guilty. Uh-oh. Mike is in trouble. The charges are for conspiring to do a bunch of things that are illegal. Now one of the alleged conspirators is about to say what he knows. That does not bode well for young number 7. It might be time for the Falcons to look for a quarterback. Also, both Falcon fans should probably take this opportunity to jump off the Vick bandwagon and immediately seek a MARTA bus to throw him under.

Finally, Referee Tim Donaghy's gambling issues and his NBA affiliation have been well-discussed throughout the media. What is more interesting is the stories I have seen from the New York Times, Philadelphia Inquirer, and New York Daily News (via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution) about his high school. Donaghy attended Cardinal O'Hara High School outside Philadelphia. There are three other NBA referees who went to the same school. Still, it is just not clear to me why people are asking his high school teachers, classmates, etc. about Donaghy. What high school did Michael Vick go to? Or most of the people in the news. I don't understand how his high school ended up in the spot light too.
