    The guy was in a minimum security prison, and one thing I heard said he was beaten in the knee with a paint rolling stick in November, by a mob messenger from NY. The injury report said he suffered a tear of the lateral maniscus. He's scheduled to be moved to a halfway house in Tampa next week. He's supposedly working on a tell-all book, but who knows what the real story is with this guy, exactly what he did and who he has to be afraid of now?

    He probably shouldn't travel to Bangkok. Sex ninjas probably issued a hit on him, too.

    I wish I could tell you Tim Donaghy fought the good fight, and the mob messenger let him be. I wish I could tell you that.

    Tim got bitch slapped so what. There have been guys in the joint who have had rolling pins pushed in areas that aren't easily assessable. He's lucky.

    And sending him to Tampa to escape the mob? I don't think that's exactly the right locale.

    It was close to his Florida home.

    What Donaghy did / / making up stuff, for public media consumption?

    How can you take sides?

    End well this will not.

    He might just want to stay in prison.
