*Sob* Awww, no one finds my thread worth commenting on. And yet still the carnage continues.

All I can say is Pennant cost me a wasted trade on my fantasy team. Bugger.

I normally try to avoid signing players who might be incarcerated at any minute. But what would I know?

Squealy, your second link made me think of all our threads on Danny Heatley. Another young athlete with a fancy car who chose to play race driver on public roads but he killed his passenger. Timms goes to lockup for 12 months, Heatley gets off without a day. America, freaking great country eh?
