I'm surprised it was girls, since sports in general are homo erotic.

Gee golly, and I bet this pervert was a liberal too because they're all sick in the head.

There are far too many people in society today who think that somehow being "an all-star athlete" gives them license to do whatever they please. Exhibit A is the NCAA, which has tolerated and even encouraged corruption (Alabama and Ohio State), drug abuse (MSU - swept Jeff Smoker's problems under the rug while others go to prison for the same thing), rape (MSU), child molestation (Penn State), assault/domestic violence (U-M), and countless other crimes, all because of star-struck delusional fans engaged in boosterism.

Look at the poster child for NCAA basketball - "champion" Coach Rick Pitino of Louisville. Cheated on his wife (and humiliated his five kids) by having sex with some crazy "fan" on a restaurant table and then whined because she later tried to extort money from him after he forced her to have an abortion.

Spare us the lectures from the NCAA and ESPN about how these people are all above "character, courage, and integrity." What a joke.

I love how people are still surprised that one of the jackasses turns out to be a pervert.

You are aware they shower with each other right.

There's something not right about a group of guys showering with each other.

Why would you say that?

Most likely, this is the same person that was standing right next to you at the last tea party rally.......

This lunatic chastises liberals just like you, Dingbat, Batch, and a few other assorted fanatics do. It shouldn't matter that the person is a knuckle dragging Neanderthal......

As it has been repeated so often, the Tea Party is open to everyone. Congratulations on belongs to such a diverse group!

And you are another member of the stupid club. Apparently you and the pipester come from the same cloth? Your stupid generalizations only make YOU look stupid, not anyone else.

Point out the part where I was wrong.

You and your patriot friends have been spewing the same garbage on one level or another for the last several years. All of you kept repeating that the tea party was open to all......

You wanted them, you got them.

If you want to describe stupid, look into the mirror at the face that belongs to the same group that this other dolt does!

Just being a celebrity", seems to give some people the feeling that they can get away with anything they want...case in point:

Ask Bill "Huge" Simonson as to what he did the night he, Curt Anes, and David Kircus were the judges at a Hooter's Calendar Girl contest at Tiki Bob's in GR a few years back...although I doubt he'll remember any of it. He had more hands than an octopuss(y) if ya get the drift. Now, he comes off as being "Mr. Goodparent" with his adopted kids. He is an absolute pig!

You are wrong when you ASSume that everyone who disagrees with you, the pipester, blue and Obama are all members of the Tea Party. You progressives and your paranoia of the Tea Party is the funniest thing to come along in a very long time. But, please continue with your stupidity. At least it provides humor for us.

Just another lame attempt to skirt around the real issue here.

It speaks volumes to how shallow you are that you have to bring up everyone else and ignore the only one of you knuckle dragging conservatives that is too stupid not to hide their true feelings.

When you see a homophobic rant about liberals, it should be obvious to everyone that he/she is just like you.....

Try harder to embrace your comrades!

Once you've done that, maybe you'll understand why no sane person is going to belong to your party. "Who" makes a much better salesperson for your movement than those of you who hide the truth.

Just another lame attempt on your part to put everyone in a box where you think they belong. Perhaps if you crawled out of the box you are in once in a while, you would see that not everyone is the same. Who represents himself/herself only. Rather like you don't represent me or anyone else. Who is an ignorant bigoted racist that sounds a whole lot more like you than anyone else I know.

Huge was , is and shall ever remain a blow hard. He does put on a pretty entertaining show though and gets some big names on.
I'd like to see him join Corie, Iman, and the other dude on IN The Zone some Sunday night. Iman in about as big a blow hard as Huge.
