When we first saw the news about Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s little case of road rage, we figured it had to be an elaborate joke. After all, he was trying to evade the cops in a jacked-up truck with a life-sized picture of himself on the side. Something tells us that probably wasn’t the best choice for an escape vehicle. Either way, turns out Rampage’s little, uh, rampage in the streets was all too real and the former UFC light heavyweight champion is facing a pair of felony charges.
Anyways, like getting a song stuck in your head after hearing a few lines, we’re now jonzing for a good prank to get rid of the sadness that has crept into our souls since finding out Rampage is a moron. Luckily, this anti-Sooner came into our lives at just the right moment.
The publisher of Oklahoma’s largest newspaper and one of its sportswriters have sued a University of Texas employee who admitted posting a bogus article on the Internet about two University of Oklahoma football players.
The Oklahoma Publishing Co., which publishes The Oklahoman newspaper and newsok.com website, filed a civil lawsuit Monday against James W. Conradt, a Nebraska football fan who works as a service manager for UT’s information technology department.
The 10-count civil lawsuit accuses Conradt of libel, copyright violations and trademark infringements. It seeks unspecified financial damages.
Conradt, 36, used a template from the newspaper’s website to publish a fake article on the Internet on July 9 that stated OU quarterbacks Sam Bradford and Landry Jones had been arrested for intent to distribute cocaine, the lawsuit alleges.
Hey, James, say hi to Rampage for us if you should happen to pass him in the courthouse halls.
