Milton Bradley boozes up and riots.: "Can I get an officer in here to remove a drunk who's just pitching cookies all over the place?" a Dianna's Deli waitress said in a call to police early Monday. (via Obscure Store.)

Milton, If you want to be the next Albert "Joey" Belle, you need to hit a few homers also.

His name is Milton Bradley? What kind of cruel parents would do something like that? Here I thought this link was going to be some type of satire on the hyper-competitive world of Scrabble...

Gin makes a man mean.

Sort of OT, I guess, but speaking of competitive scrabble: has anyone read this book? Saw it in a store and was curious...

Tieguy, I read it and enjoyed it. I played Scrabble quite a bit a few years back (it was more like Drinking Scrabble if that makes it sound better) and got to be a decent "living-room player". I often joked about joining the world tour or whatever...well the author did just that. It's a strange tour and a good read, especially if you know some basics of Scrabble. On topic: It was Milton's b-day last Monday and the Indians have been out of town for a six game trip. I think Milton was blowing off some steam, happy to be 24 and playing baseball for a living and took things a bit too far. He didn't do himself any lasting damage or do harm to anyone else. Not really a big deal.
