Chicago firefighters and police responded to a massive fire this morning in a Chicago suburb at a $30 million mansion owned by NBA legend Michael Jordan. According to police, the fire was started by a man they claim to be an “extreme LeBron James fan”.
24 year old Jose Alvarez was arrested shortly after 11am driving near the scene in a heavily damaged pickup truck covered in Miami Heat stickers. Security cameras outside of Jordan’s mansion captured the man crashing his truck through the front gate of the property before throwing several Molotov cocktails into the house.
At one point, Alvarez can be heard yelling, “If you can’t take the Heat, stay out of the NBA!”
Alvarez is currently in custody in Chicago awaiting arraignment. Several Miami fans have raised questions about the incident and claim Michael Jordan is attempting to blame Heat fans while committing insurance fraud for a home he was having difficulty selling.
Jordan’s response today only fueled the Heat fan’s allegations, “Heck, that mansion was never going to sell and I got more Insurance money than it would sell for.”
LeBron James denies any connection to Alvarez and thinks that this is a disgrace to him and in no way shows that he is a better basketball player.
Olympic swimming sensation Michael Phelps was involved in a motorcycle accident today which resulted in both of his legs being broken.
According to witnesses, Phelps was ran off of the highway by a merging taco truck which cut in front of his Harley motorcycle. Police say that the taco truck was at fault but Phelps was speeding when the accident happened.
Phelps is in the hospital with two broken legs, a broken left arm, and a dislocated left shoulder. Doctors say Phelps will be able to walk again but might not be able to recover to his full potential.
The taco truck driver is slightly injured but his taco truck is totaled. When Phelps gained consciousness at the hospital he said “Does Maryland support medical marijuana cause I could totally get stoned to take my mind off this pain”.
The company that owned the truck, “Poco’s Loco Tacos”, apparently did not have insurance but has offered Phelps a lifetime of free tacos.
Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday evening with minor injuries after being targeted in a drive-by shooting. Rumors that the drive-by was ordered by members of Jackson’s former gang.
DeSean was involved with the Crips before his career in football. Rumor has it that the “Compton Crips” sent out an executive order to kill him for signing with the Redskins and wearing rival gang “Bloods” colors.
When DeSean was released from the hospital today he said “I haven’t associated with these thugs in years, you know what they say, once a Crip, you always a Crip. Its just hard to believe my old homiez would try to kill me.”
DeSean still plans to play for the redskins and carry out his 3 year 24 million dollar contract. He is worried about more attacks but is confident police can keep him safe.
Shortly after the shooting we spoke to QB Robert Griffin III he commented “I think that DeSean is a great addition to the team but is not worth it if he is putting this team at risk”.
We will just have to wait and see how this violent “Beef” will end.
After the NFL Season the Denver Economy started struggling Coach John Fox had an Idea how to support local profits and pump some money back into the City. City officials have approved the plan and the Denver Broncos have officially teamed up with the local Girl scouts to sell cookies to hungry marijuana customers.
Wide Receiver Demaryius Thomas said “I think it be great that we be pumpin’ cash back into Denver and maybe we get a little puff, puff, pass at this charity event”.
Local Marijuana users think that girl scout cookies are the perfect snack to fight off those “Munchies”. The girl scouts have raised 5.6 thousand dollars so far and will use that to give back to the Denver community.
Quarterback Peyton Manning proceeded to say that “Im really glad we can help out the Girl scouts and the Denver Economy at the same time! OMAHA!”.
Not only does this attract out of town guests but it raises the cookie sales and marijuana sales in Denver.
Denver has credited John Fox for the Idea and hopes other local towns will follow their lead. Denver’s Mayor, Michael Hancock has awarded John Fox with the “Towns Alive National Award” for bringing their economy back to life. Girlscouts and Denver both will be awarded from this smart move.
