With Friends Like This....



While Tookie Johnson was awaiting execution one of his more prominent erstwhile supporters, Jamie "No More Than One White Man At A Time" Foxx had something more important to do:

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. Dec 13, 2005 — Terrell Owens doesn't need to score touchdowns to celebrate. Exiled from the Philadelphia Eagles last month, the All-Pro wide receiver known for his flamboyant end zone theatrics hosted a birthday party Monday night at rapper Jay-Z's 40-40 club. T.O. turned 32 on Dec. 7. The bash drew several NFL stars, some of Owens' former teammates on the Eagles and a few celebrities. Among the celebrities on the guest list were Jamie Foxx, Will Smith, Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson and the Rev. Jesse Jackson.

Scheduling can be such a pain in the ass. Still there were other celebrities who managed to protest Tookie's execution in person among them "Shotgun" Sean Penn and Joan "Holy Shit She's Still Alive" Baez who sang "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" which in itself is a violation of the eighth amendment.

Tookie Johnson?

After the thread (predictably) turned to the subject of abortion, I commented on this one over at Baseball Crank.

Oh, and I didn't post as "zaphod". I used my real name.
