Problem is this rapidly aging football phenom, Paul Baldwin, also has what many law enforcement experts believe is the longest rap sheet in the history of crime.
As of this June, Baldwin (from Portsmouth, New Hampshire – the second biggest producer of NFL Hall of Fame quarterbacks behind the states of Pennsylvania and Texas) has been arrested 154 times.
Evidently…Baldwin likes beer. Unfortunately, he likes his beer “cold and free” with a keen emphasis on “free.” Yes, Paul Baldwin is a world class beer thief.
Baldwin has been busted for trespassing, receiving stolen property and theft, among others offenses. His most recent arrest was for stealing 48 beers.
Only 12 days before Baldwin's most recent arrest, he had just finished up a one year jail sentence for stealing a $1.99 beer. For that arrest, last year, Baldwin told the judge that he didn't need a lawyer, because "I've been in this court more than you have."
(Nice, Paul, NICE!)
Portsmouth police Capt. Corey MacDonald cited Baldwin's criminal history as including 152 arrests, eight trespass notices, 75 citations, four different Social Security number aliases and convictions for thefts, receiving stolen property, arson and criminal mischief.
Baldwin's latest arrest—for stealing two 18-packs and one 12-pack of beer from a convenience store—was in nearby Kittery, Maine, where Police Chief Edward Strong told the local NBC station, "I've been here 32 years, and I've never seen anyone with an arrest record this long."
Sources tell T.A.H. that Maryland, Virginia Tech, North Carolina State and Florida State are actively recruiting Baldwin who has three years of college eligibility remaining. That said, Boston College claims to have the inside track due to geographic proximity and the simple fact that they’ve reportedly convinced Baldwin that Sam Adams is actually their Athletic Director and head football coach.

(And...what-the-hell kind of name is Bad Ragaz?...as in Bad Rag Ass? Really?)
Oh yeah...and Tiger Woods is getting divorced, and all it's gonna cost him is some custody and $750 million. Evidently...paying for sex is more expensive than he first surmised. If you round up his alleged affairs to two dozen, that works out to $31 million per trist.

According to the sports blog MKRob Sports, Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder's Heisman campaign is already underway...
"Christian Ponder is a Heisman candidate in most peoples minds and the Seminoles have already begun its claim for Ponder by releasing their logo for Ponder’s Heisman campaign with the date July 7, 2010.
The announcement – the launch of a Ponder-for-Heisman website? – will likely build some summer enthusiasm for both Ponder and FSU football, which went 7-6 last season in the final year of legendary coach Bobby Bowden’s career.
Ponder threw for 2,717 yards in nine games last season before separating his right (throwing) shoulder in a loss at Clemson in November and missing the final four games of the season. He completed 68.8 percent of his passes in 2009 – the best total for an FSU quarterback since Charlie Ward (69.5) won the Heisman Trophy in 1993.
This is the first Heisman Trophy campaign done by FSU, which has had two Heisman winners: Ward and Chris Weinke (2000)."
Nice, Noles, NICE!
The event was sponsored by P.F. Changs.
“To be the last team to win it here,” winning pitcher Matt Price said, “that’s amazing.”
The Gamecocks provided the perfect send-off for the stadium that has been home to college baseball’s biggest event since 1950 with a 2-1 victory over UCLA in 11 innings Tuesday night.
The CWS moves to a new stadium in downtown Omaha next year.
South Carolina (54-16) trailed in the middle innings of all three of its NCAA regional games and had to win two one-run games in the super regionals to make it to the College World Series.

The 8 p.m. tip-off for the game will mark the first prime-time broadcast of the rivalry on network television, according to the news release.
Mike Aresco, executive vice president of programming for CBS Sports issued a statement declaring that the primetime telecast will generate "enormous interest across the nation" leading into the network's coverage of the 2011 NCAA tournament.
"It is an honor for the Duke-North Carolina game to be placed on this stage — for us, the ACC and for college basketball," Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a statement released by Duke. "Hopefully the game will live up to that level of expectation."

(Everybody In The) World (Cares Except The U.S.) Cup: Notorious “Breakfast Goals” Doom World Cup Hopes
In spite of being cheered on by President Bill Clinton and Rolling Stone Mick Jagger, U.S. soccer’s life on the World Cup edge came to an exhausting and crushing end against a familiar foe Saturday, when Ghana—led by Asamoah Gyan’s goal 3 minutes into overtime—posted a 2-1 victory.
It was the second straight elimination loss to Ghana.
