Bieber's arraignment for crimes against Boston sports


Bieber's arraignment for crimes against Boston sports

By Mary Paoletti

This must all end . . . this Bieber . . . thing . . .that's been going on for two years.

I'd start by not writing about him here, but he won't leave sports alone. And as long as he continues to infect the world that WGS deals in then he's fair game for ridicule and torment.

Like this week. Yup, Biebs messed up again and he gon' and dun' it in my city. So WGS has decided to bring formal charges. Let's get this on.

In the case of the Commonwealth versus Justin Bieber:

On the night of November 17, 2010, at a so-called "concert" at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, you perpetrated several crimes. To the charges of

--Fraud (lipsyncing, you little punk), counts 00-19

--Blatant disrespect (Yankee hats on your dancers? Really?), count 20

--Stupidity (you can't claim that Shaq likes you then call Kobe the greatest), count 21

--and Mayhem (Tanguary and Felger still haven't recovered), count 22

How do you plead? Wait, let me help.


You are sentenced to what will be one of the most anti-climactic lives in the history of pop culture. Your voice will change, the movie you do with Paris Hilton and Mario Lopez will tank, an angry Shaq will find you, America and your mother will regret you, not even Canada will take you back, and Michael Felger will laugh the entire time.

Boston loves you, Biebs. Just don't let the door hit you on the way . . .


WNBA: Jones' 23 points, 21 rebounds leads Sun past Chicago, 97-79


WNBA: Jones' 23 points, 21 rebounds leads Sun past Chicago, 97-79

ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Jonquel Jones scored 19 of her career-high 23 points in the second half and finished with 21 rebounds to help the Connecticut Sun beat the Chicago Sky 97-79 on Sunday night.

Jones, who set her previous career best of 20 rebounds on May 13, became the 12th player in WNBA history with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds in a game. Alyssa Thomas had 17 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and two steals and Lynetta Kizer scored 16 with seven rebounds for Connecticut (1-4), which won its first game of the season.

Kizer's jumper midway through the first quarter made it 14-13 and the Sun led the rest of the way. Jessica Breland hit two free throws to pull Chicago (1-5) within four with 4:37 left in the third, but Jones scored seven points during a 10-3 run over the next three-plus minutes and the Sky got no closer.

Tamera Young led Chicago with 17 points. She has at least one made 3-pointer in each of the last five games after going nearly five calendar years (June 23, 2011) since her last 3.
