The Monday Melange 07.12.10: Harper Lee, Da’Rick Rogers, Jessica Simpson

This past week was the 50th anniversary of the publication of Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird.  Harper Lee is still alive, living a somewhat reclusive life in Monroeville, Alabama.

Tennessee football players Da’Rick Rogers and Darren Myles leaving jail after posting bond.  I love how Da’Rick Rogers is trying to hide his face from the camera.  Dude, the whole world already knows who you are.

–For those of you who don’t already know who these people are, Da’Rick Rogers and Darren Myles were Tennessee football players.  They were involved in a bar fight this past weekend.  (Not a whole lot to do up in Knoxville–you gotta do what you can.)  Darren Myles was kicked off the team.  No disciplinary action has yet been taken against Da’Rick Rogers.

Osama Bin Laden’s son is being treated for schizophrenia.  If Osama Bin Laden were my dad, I would probably be crazy too.

–Seems like Jessica Simpson has a thing for NFL guys.  We all know that she dated Tony Romo for a few years and contributed significantly to his lack of productivity as a quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.  Well, now she is seeing another NFL guy:  former San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints tight end Eric Johnson.

Jose Canseco  just got beat by a 60-year-old boxer.  Talk about not having a date to the prom.

According to Prince, the internet is so over.  What do you think?
