This is tacky, Big Lead

    First off, I like this blog, the BigLead. I've bookmarked them and go most every day. But they wrote something today that I've seen before, and I think its just tacky - posting an online wedding registry for a sports celebrity.

    I'm all for skewering athletes when they screw up. But this strikes me as a real invasion of privacy. It's tacky and classless. Let them have their wedding and gifts in private, for pete's sake.

    If they've posted it to a Web site that anyone can access (and find results through a name search), then what's the big deal?

    People apparently have a hankerin' to read this sort of shit. (And yes, "shit" is what it is.)

    I'd rather have a picture of Landon Donovan (and FYI, thebiglead, if you read this thread...it's DaMarcus, not DeMarcus)

    Spelling seems to elude them there daily. They even misspelled "LaDainian" this week.

    I obviously don't read it as much as poin does. :)

    the power of the internet. Now, their family has no excuses to show up without a gift. If the Media has my list why did you buy us a toaster uncle Al? You're dead to me old man. Take your toaster and perform a function I won't say in mixed company. You cheap bastard. Say goodbye to Aunt Alice before I knock your dentures to New Jersey.

    By the way, is it pronounced The BigLead or The BigLead?

    I'm never sure.

    I'd buy him a fucking passport and a pair of testicles, so he can get back to Europe and test himself against the best.
