This is going in my "necessity is the mother of invention" file. Right after I get back from Tampa.

I can't believe that scantily clad women and alcohol would be present at a sporting event, least of all an NFL game.

I can't beleive no Panthers cheerleaders were involved.

Why is it that Tampa is the world capital of this kind of story? Seriously - when you hear that a pro athlete has been in a bar fight or there are some sort of stripper shenanigans, or an alligator ate a grandmother, who doesn't think Tampa?

Ray Lewis and Patrick Ewing think of Atlanta.

I seriously doubt that this story comes as a surprise to anyone who has ever been to Tampa. In fact, I think that's 100% in keeping with the character of the city.

Two of the strippers who police said engaged in sex as part of the show each were charged with a misdemeanor count each of performing an unnatural and lascivious act.

Lascivious I can understand. But what, praytell, is unnatural about having sex?

well... it looks like it will cost you somewhere between $20 and $40 to find out. along with the trip to tampa, of course.

As a Cathar, I can tell you that everything is unnatural about having sex.

Re: #8 - I'd guees they mean "unnatural" in the homophobic sense under which many of this great nation's sex laws were written.

yeah oral sex is still illegal in many mnay states although you will never see any rich or what people brought up on charges.

by Becephalus (not verified) :: Wed, 11/30/2005 - 11:14pm

that was supposed to be "many many" and "rich or white" (not "what"...my brain is not cut out for typing).

WHAT?!?!

No Minnesota Vikings comments yet?

Shame on all of you.

Oral sex is obviously legal in Maryland as Brian Billick performs it on himself every press conference.

Also in Massachooseits, How else would you explain the Bruschi return to glory game?

Paul Maguire, you're a dirty, dirty man.

When lesbian sex on motorhomes outside football games is outlawed, only outlaws will have lesbian sex on motorhomes outside football games.

They can have my lesbian sex on motorhomes outside football games when the pry it from my cold, dead hands.

Lesbian sex on motorhomes outside football games doesn't kill kittens, people do.

I try. I really do. I've always had to get by on making people laugh (especially the ladies) because theres really not much else interesting about me. So i've had a lot of practice.

Some other message boards I post on don't really enjoy my "style" but it seems to fit here......

I just wish one of these threads will leave me an opening to tell one of my infamous stories. I assure you they trump any Sunday Night skit i've ever done.

But i've never found the right lead in because I try to stay on topic as much as possible here.

At least Michael Irvin has an alibi.

Damn I wish I had thought of this first...imagine how much money you could make.

I never got into the whole strip club thing. I don't know. Just never did.

Although, about 15 minutes from where I live there was a strip club called the "climax" and the "climax" was famous for being the worlds first strip club with a drive up window.

What you did was you drive up to a Mcdonalds like drive up window, pay the person in the window, and pull up to to the next "door." The screen pulls up and then you watch this chick dance in whats basically a glorified phone booth.

It was really bizarre.

It lasted for a while and earlier this year the owner put the club up for sale on E-bay.

I think E-bay made him pull it though.........

Awesome. Small town Western PA RULES!

Adam (post 21),

That's a very strange story. This is perhaps because when I started reading the post, I thought it was a setup for a joke, especially given post 18.

As for the Tampa strip trailer, my only question is this: was it and/or the lady dancers double-wide?

23
by kleph (not verified) :: Thu, 12/01/2005 - 2:41am

no. click my name for photos.

This quotation is priceless:

"I don't understand what justification they think they had, bringing this to a family environment like a Bucs game."

And just like that, my day is brighter. Fantastic. Also, we may have stumbled on the way to increase attendance at D-Rays games.

Fifty bucks on Fred Smoot to have partial ownership of the trailer.

You see, this is the analysis that sets this website apart.

I think it bears mentioning that the old Bushwhackers WWF tag team own a restaurant in Tampa. It just seemed more appropriate to include that here than in the Scramble thread.

31
by Erasmus (not verified) :: Thu, 12/01/2005 - 4:35pm

From what I hear pat downs cost 15 bucks.

Fred Smoot denies driving the bus as of right now. Though Onterrio Smith has a 90% of being found involved during the investigation.

that is all I have for right now.

re #29: DVOA for topless dancers is definitely an "off season" project.

I always hated the Bushwhackers. When I was 8 years old they were the only people (other than my mom) who could make me turn off WWF. They were just so stupid and such terrible wrestlers. Was there anyone who actually liked those idiots?

34
by Ted (not verified) :: Thu, 12/01/2005 - 11:24pm

MDS, I completely agree with you about the Bushwhackers. They were simply terrible and I too would turn off my TV whenever they came on. Probably my favourite memory of them was in a Royal Rumble (can't remember which year) when one of them got eliminated in about 3 seconds. That was funny. The thing is though, they were quite popular at the time so I guess some people did like them. That probably says something about wrestling fans.

$5 for 3 minutes for watching a not-so-good-looking girl dancing in a not-so-clean booth.

Atleast that is what I heard about the place....

Oops, forgot about the not-so-clean swimming pool.

Just one of the many nasty places along Route 22.

I didn't mind the Bushwhackers too much; they were mildly annoying, but I did think their propensity for face-licking was a bit odd.

Apparently my memory only goes back fourteen years, because the only occasion I can truly remember the Bushwhackers was when they beat Earthquake and Tugboat/Typhoon with Andre the Giant on crutches outside the ring. I just looked it up, and that was Andre the Giant's last WWF TV appearance.

there must be a lot of pollen in this room...
