Couple of Trojie related items to share today. First, our guys have kicked their sorry a$$es in yet another sport:
Fourth-ranked UCLA exacted a measure of revenge against No. 12 USC over the weekend with its 30-27, 30-20, 30-26 victory at the Galen Center. Earlier this season, it was the Trojans that swept the Bruins, 3-0, at Pauley Pavilion. With the win, the Bruins gained 2.5 points toward the perpetual trophy presented by the Southern California Lexus Dealers.
UCLA has now built a 50-22.5 advantage in pursuit of the sixth annual Lexus Gauntlet and needs just 7.5 points to clinch the 150-pound, pewter-gilded crown jewel of L.A.'s storied cross-town rivalry. While the magic number to clinch the competition - 57.5 points - in sight for UCLA, 37.5 Gauntlet points do still remain up for grabs.
Writes Wolf: "Our spies tell us former USC tailback Reggie Bush is persona non grata at the Playboy Mansion because of a conduct violation. And no, it was nothing involving a Playmate."
Bush, of course, is now a Saint. A New Orleans Saint. But it appears even a Saint can be sinner.
BTW speaking of TrOJie scandals did anything ever happen to the black baby in chains scandal except for dismissing it as a mere joke. I was too wrapped up in Madness to pay a lot of attention. But now that summer (of Trojan scandals) we might as well start following up. Making fun of these (racists?) clowns never gets old.
