Do NOT mess with Jean Strahan

I believe the expression “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” was written espressly with Jean Strahan in mind. To recap, she’s labeled Michael Strahan as:

  • cheap
  • but ostentatious on himself
  • a cheater
  • gay
  • wife beater

Now you can add another thing to the list: pervert. Jean testified that when the two were dating, Michael secretly videotaped her sister undressing and when Jean found the video equipment, he wired $30,000 to her account.

In addition, when testifying on his relationship with Nicole D’Oliveira of Toronto, Strahan said that he did business with her sometimes but when pressed about it, said that it was not a business that brought him any income. Hmmm… the “business” sounds like the oldest one — a terrorist whore.

Soon-to-be-ex-wife: Strahan’s lavish and gay

Ian Smith and Michael Strahan

Here’s a lesson for all young athletes — you better be sure she’s the right one before putting that ring on her finger because who knows what will come out in a divorce. Yesterday, she testified that Strahan’s friend, Dr. Ian Smith set him up with his current mistress and with girls on road trips but she really dropped the bomb when she accused she said the two were more than friends.

Michael moved in with Ian in his one-bedroom apartment for the next year. And you can say an alternative lifestyle sprouted.

Ian Smith countered with, “Michael Strahan is one of my best friends and needed a place to stay after he was kicked out of his own home. I let him sleep on my couch as any best friend would do.” This sounds reasonable except that this is Michael Strahan, a professional athlete with a $32 million contract. And it was for a whole year? I’m sure TO has something to say about rats.

We don’t want to get sued so we’ll just quote on this one.

On Tuesday, Smith seemed to claim that, because he is a “happily married man,” it was impossible for him to have been in a sexual relationship with Strahan. However, not only are the cases of married men having sex with one another well-documented, but it has become so common among black men that it even has a name – “the down low.”

Looking for the next Antonio Gates

Ever since Antonio Gates made it big in the NFL, everyone has been looking for the next athletic big man who isn’t NBA worthy but could make it as a tight end in the NFL. (Some people have even wondered why not just use Shaq for goaline jump ball situations.) Enter Jai Lewis.

Despite George Mason’s improbable run to the Final Four, Jai Lewis isn’t going to be an NBA player. However, about half of the NFL’s 32 teams inquired about Lewis before the draft. Today, the Giants signed him as an undrafted free agent.

Unless Lewis is a complete stiff, at 6’7″ and 290 lbs, he’s got a good shot to at least make the practice squad. And that beats playing basketball in Europe. Giants GM Ernie Accorsi seems to understand that it’s a project and that means he’ll be patient as he waits for Lewis to develop.

It’s not going to happen overnight. Basketball teams are filled with great athletes. The question is, does he have the fortitude to play this sport, where you’re getting hit in the mouth every play?

This mean’s Lewis is the anti-Mario Williams, who better produce from day 1 in minicamp and better have more impact than Reggie Bush from the get go. Although, come to think of it, would you rather have no pressure or $26.5M in guaranteed money? Yeah, us too.

Shockey suffers from Premature Celebration

Premature celebration is a horrific disease that affects 1 out of every million jackasses in the country. The last known case in NY involved Michael Strahan pointing to the scoreboard in a game against San Francisco in 2002, only to have the Niners come back and win the game.

In the latest high profile case, Jeremy Shockey was afflicted with the disease during a potential game winning field goal by Jay Feely against the Seattle Seahawks. Though not fatal, premature celebration does result in red face, looking ridiculously stupid, and belittlement from others across the country.
