Weekly Review 11/17/06

  • Kobe Bryant is being sued by a man who claims that Bryant deliberately elbowed him when diving for a loose ball in the stands. Bryant doesn’t recall the incident but still bought the man a diamond ring.

  • The Houston Dynamo won the MLS Cup, stunning Americans that there is Major League Soccer in America.

  • A deer whose head was stuck in a plastic Halloween jack-o’-lantern for nearly a week is back to normal. It lost 10 pounds, giving parents of obese children an idea on how to use the candy bucket next Halloween.

  • A Wisconsin man who changed his name to Andrew Jackson Griffith prior to an unsuccessful run for sheriff is being sued by the real Andy Griffith for trademark violations. The defendant had no comment and referred the matter to his attorney, Ben Matlock.

  • The fan who instigated the Pacers-Pistons brawl in 2004 is reportedly banned for life from Detroit Pistons home games. He is, however, a season ticket holder for the Jerry Springer Show.
