Banned For Life
Want proof that men are dumber than women (other than a billionaire’s mistress tricked him into losing his NBA franchise)? Check out these pics of dude’s doing stupid things….
Before we get to the racism and lifetime ban we talk a little about the Spider-Man movie that opens this weekend. There is a great article in today's D&C about the Rochester connections to the superhero film.
The Webster theater is having a screening just for people that were extras during the filming here last summer. Pauly has a great idea... that viewing should have a "pause" button so that the people can stop on themselves for a second.
Seems that a couple Rochestarians have got the movie bug, and have pursued careers as actors and/or extras.
Tools/Clippers Get Clipped
Lots of questions surrounding the LA Clippers situation. Who decides who Sterling can sell the team to? Can his kids take over the team? Can he be lowballed on the price? Will Sterling fight the decision? The most important question of the day is "Is Sterling's mistress hot"? The guys on the show say yes, Marianne and Jackie Nutt say no.
Oh yeah, the Clippers actually won last night. Are we losing our freedom of speech with this decision? We say no... Sterling can say whatever he wants, but there can be consequences. He's not going to jail.
Wease has heard a conspiracy theory that is kind of interesting, all though we'd bet against it... Magic Johnson paid off the woman to set up Sterling because he wants to by the team.

Think you or your mom could be a great workout partner for Iron Mike Tyson? Well, now's your chance.
The March of Dimes has recently posted a number of amazing gifts for Mother’s Day on eBay. Some of the more sporty gift ideas are an autographed Kobe Bryant basketball, tickets to see the LA Kings, and a meet-and-greet with Joe Namath.
But if you’re looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift, why not splurge on a workout in Las Vegas with Mike Tyson?
That’s right -- the winning bid gets a first class trip to Las Vegas to hang with Tyson.
Your mom -- and a friend -- will then get in the ring with Tyson and work up a sweat with the former Heavyweight champ and his trainer.
Afterwards, dear ol’ mom also gets to hang out with Tyson at lunch and take in all his glorious booty tales.
Yup --The perfect Mother’s Day gift.
Sure, your mom may be frightened to death of Mike Tyson, but remember… all the money goes to a great cause.
Check out the latest eBay action here.
Marianne is sure that her mom has no idea who Mike Tyson is, so we call her. Mrs. Sierk nails it.

What Would You Do
Wease has said that for 5 million bucks he'd let Donald Sterling call him all the names he wants, but Pauly has a great spin... for a billion dollars would Wease make a bunch of racist statements publicly, and not be able to apologize or say that he did it for money.
We get a great call from a black listener named Mike who feels bad for Donald Sterling... he wouldn't want his girl to hang out with Magic Johnson either, or rent apartments to a bunch of dudes he knows.
Wease's Night Out
I'm guessing you're not going to be shocked to find out Wease went out last night. He talks about the birthday party he went to, and the drinking he did, which leads to the question "Which of Wease's vices is stronger is stronger, alcohol or gambling?" We give him the Gambler's Anonymous quiz...

Wease doesn't do so well... 7+ means there is a concern, and he doubles it.
- I agree with Donald Sterling's ban from the NBA for his racist statements. Do you think now other sports will do something about racially insensitive nicknames like the "Redskins", or Chief Wahoo's affiliation with Pauly's Cleveland Indians, or even Billy's alma mater the East High Orientals? Wease doesn't see what's wrong with the Oriental nickname... a bit odd, but not racist. Callers seem to think "Oriental" is used for objects like rugs, but Asians are people. The term may also have a negative background from when Asians first came to America.
