Terrell Owens reportedly owes $250K in unpaid taxes


It sounds like Terrell Owens still has some serious financial problems, despite what his publicist may want us to believe. Owens reportedly owes a quarter of a million dollars in unpaid taxes from two years ago.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, the federal government claims TO owes $244,391.52 in unpaid income taxes for the 2012 tax year. Owens signed a contract with the Seattle Seahawks in 2012 but was cut before the season and made just $4,300. As TMZ noted, he must have had some other sources of income to rack up a tax bill of that magnitude.

This is not the first time TO has had tax issues. He reportedly paid off a $430,000 tax lien last year that he had racked up from 2005 to 2009.

But that’s not all. Owens’ estranged wife Rachel Snider — whom he shared a solid several days of marriage with — said last month that she is going after alimony payments. Snider had previously accused TO of only marrying her so he could obtain a $2 million loan for a home purchase.

Less than two years ago, Owens was ordered to work at Goodwill after he missed child support payments. All this stuff can’t be made up, right?

Kim Klement/Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Apr 5, 2014; St. Petersburg, FL, USA; Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre (29) looks on prior to the game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field

ARLINGTON, Texas — Martin Perez threw eight scoreless innings, Donnie Murphy had a sacrifice fly and the Texas Rangers got a series-clinching 1-0 victory over the Houston Astros on Sunday.

Perez (2-0) scattered five hits and walked three, but the left-hander benefited from four double-play grounders. He struck out two.

Murphy’s deep flyball to the left-center gap in the sixth sent home Josh Wilson for the lone run of the game against Brett Oberholtzer (0-3).

Masters Sunday filled with intrigue and diversity

AUGUSTA, Ga. – For two days Augusta National culled the herd, sending some of the game’s biggest names spiraling out of town and leaving just enough daylight between Bubba Watson and the pack to give the 78th playing the faint hue of a boat race.

But as is the Masters modus operandi, congestion returned under a warm spring sun thanks to what the venerable course does best – two-way traffic.

Big second half from Nowitzki, Ellis puts Mavs in playoffs; could put Suns out of them


Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis have carried the Dallas Mavericks all season long.

So it’s fitting that Dallas is now in the playoffs because those two combined for 44 second half points Saturday night, turning an 11 point halftime deficit into a 101-98 Mavericks win at home.

Jeff Francoeur’s teammates in El Paso pulled off a great prank


The Padres signed outfielder Jeff Francoeur to a minor league deal at the end of March, a week after he was released by the Indians. Francoeur, 30, had adequate results, posting a .788 OPS in 35 at-bats with the Indians during spring training, but the team just didn’t have room with him in their outfield, so he moved over to the Padres.

Francoeur reported to Triple-A El Paso and his new teammates banded together to pull off an elaborate prank on him. They pretended that pitcher Jorge Reyes was deaf and Francoeur bit it, hook, line, and sinker, despite some obvious tells. Watch the prank in the video below, which includes Francoeur’s reaction when he learns the truth:

Graduation and the end of an era

 photo 4-12-14004_zps1569b7b4.jpg

Graduation from college is just around the corner. Northwood University is a 4 year university, I finished it in 5.

First of all, I’m very thankful to the good folks at Northwood for somehow putting up with me to complete my college degree in Business Administration. I’m thankful for my co-students that helped me along the way as well. Friends and relatives too. It’s been a long road, which was every bit worth the pain and suffering that meant getting homework done, missing lots of chances to sit on the couch and watch TV. It’s been well worth it.
