Mama McDaniels is Not Happy With the 76ers Tanking the Season
Sixers rookie K.J. McDaniels may be happy just to be on an NBA roster, but that doesn't mean his mom is pleased with the Sixers tanking this season. In a Twitter reply to a 76ers blog asking whether the team is tanking this year, she responded, "Hi im kj mcdaniels mom, yes they are tanking the season f--g over my son and yes i and kj fans are livid." She then chimed in on some other Sixers-related tweets and now appears to have deleted her account since I just went there and received an error message.

Denim Fight of the Week
The manager of an upper-crust Massachusetts golf club (with a $45,000 initiation fee) took a one-month suspension and eventually resigned when he got into a shouting match with a guest who was wearing denim. As anyone who's ever been to a fancypants golf club knows, denim is a no-no. The club investigated the matter and suspended the guest and his wife three months for wearing jeans and other dress-code violations. The lesson, as always, stick to mini-golf.
