    #230 - It's EXACTLY Like The Wire! - The Omarness of Reggie Gross

    This week, we find one of the craziest stories in criminal athlete history! He had a rough start, as his dad was stabbed to death when he was 3 days old. He had a decent boxing career, even fighting Mike Tyson, but he was also leading a double life, as an enforcer for a brutal drug gang in West Baltimore. The same gang that was portrayed as "The Barksdales" in The Wire. And you'll never believe who betrays him, and finally turns him in for his vicious string of murders! This one is something special!

     

    Box your way off the street & into the ring with Mike Tyson, remain on the streets as a no nonsense hitman, taking out the drug competition, and be turned in by one of the most notorious criminals in street history with Reggie Gross!!

     

    Check us out, every Tuesday!

     

    We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!

    #229 - Murder Your Problems Away - The Rancorousness of Steve Skinner

    #229 - Murder Your Problems Away - The Rancorousness of Steve Skinner

    This week, we explore one of the most unlikely stories we've ever covered. A low level MMA fighter, who only chose to fight as a second career, as it took a back seat to robbing drug dealers, running a drug empire, torturing retirees with hot kitchen utensils, and murdering people in cold blood.  He had to stop fighting, due to a little murder rap, that sent him on the run to South America, where he somehow started another mini empire! This story is unreal!

     

    Fight professionally as a hobby, have a drug empire as your day job, and run away to another continent to avoid murder charges with Steve Skinner!!

    #228 - Attack Of The Circus Penis - The Exposedness of Kellen Winslow Jr

    #228 - Attack Of The Circus Penis - The Exposedness of Kellen Winslow Jr

    This week, we visit one of the most requested stories out there. His father was a Hall of Famer in the NFL, and he followed in his dad's footsteps into the league, even the same position. Though his playing career wasn't as good as Dad, his crime career is certainly as prolific as anyone in sports history. Let's just say that he liked to "show off", but that isn't all... He also commits some of the most horrific crimes we've ever covered. This one is a bit gross!

     

    Follow your father's lead into the NFL, have your teammates grossed out by your constant pornography watching, and be lucky that you're not going to prison for life with Kellen Winslow Jr!!

    #227 - Eat Your Heart Out, KFC - The Unfamiliarness of Nate "Grave" Driggers

    #227 - Eat Your Heart Out, KFC - The Unfamiliarness of Nate "Grave" Driggers

    This week, we dig into the nooks & crannies to find someone who only had a brief moment of sunshine in the NBA, despite his work ethic & talent. He instead filled his time with playing overseas & in smaller pro leagues, as well as starting a couple of businesses.  Unfortunately, that were illegal, and had to do with drugs, guns, train robberies & more! We laugh ourselves silly at what can only be described as seriously nuts. A true gem in the rough!

     

    Put KFC's blend of original herbs & spices to shame, fist fight your way to the NBA, and when confronted by clear & obvious evidence, always deny it anyway with Nate "Grave" Driggers!!

    #226 - The Boozy Murderer - The Willfulness of Ralph "Blackie" Schwamb

    #226 - The Boozy Murderer - The Willfulness of Ralph "Blackie" Schwamb

    This week, we go back in time, for a story that wouldn't even be possible, today.  He was born in 1926, lived through the depression by learning to gamble, at a young age.  He joined the Navy for WWII, but only because his choice was the military, or jail.  He ended up in military jail, though, due to his constant violence & disappearing.  His wild lifestyle put him in business with both two bit hustlers & famous gangsters.  This all results in a brutal murder, an amazing prison baseball league career, and even more crime! A wild, alcoholic roller coaster ride! 

     

    Get in with 1940's Los Angeles gangsters, play very briefly in the major leagues, and never, ever learn your lesson with Ralph "Blackie" Schwamb!!

    #225 - A Connoisseur Of Drugs & Violence - The Eloquentness of Michael "Dynamite" Dokes

    #225 - A Connoisseur Of Drugs & Violence - The Eloquentness of Michael "Dynamite" Dokes

    This week, we dive back into the "brain damage sports" with a boxer who had plenty. Plenty of fights, plenty of accolades, plenty of money, plenty of brain damage, plenty of cocaine, and definitely plenty of arrests.  He was an intelligent, big afro wearing, own clothes making gourmet chef, and heavyweight champ of the world, as well. But his true love was cocaine. You'll be shocked to hear what he considers "personal use", and even more shocked by his violence against women.  He's a true screw up, and an instant CIS classic!   

     

    Start boxing & doing cocaine while in middle school, eat a large plate of pasta before a heavyweight title match, and always say "I'm good, now" with Michael "Dynamite" Dokes!!
