Bubba's speed bump

Posted: April 04, 2011

J AMES "BUBBA" STEWART had a heckuva week.

On Saturday at Texas Stadium in Dallas, he became the first African-American to win a 250cc THQ World Supercross GP/THQ AMA Supercross Series race.

The money he won should come in handy when it comes time to hire a lawyer.

Last Monday, you see, he was arrested for impersonating a police officer in Florida.

Seems old Bubba, while riding his motorcycle, thought it would be funny to turn on some flashing red and blue lights and pull over a car.

Unfortunately, the vehicle he stopped was full of off-duty state troopers.

Good 'Situation' for NFL players

With the lockout looming, NFL players have to love that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi pulled in $32,000 for giving a talk at Rutgers last week.

Think about it. If the "Jersey Shore" dimwit can command that kind of coin, players should be able to hit colleges up for some serious money.

We foresee all types of courses and lectures.

Michael Vick could do a weeklong series on "How to Get Out of the Doghouse." Pencil in Albert Haynesworth for "Road Rage for Dummies." And, if we're lucky, Plaxico Burress will offer a course in gun safety.

Statue is no 'Thriller'

If you're a Michael Jackson fan and a soccer fan, this item is for you.

The Premier League's Fulham unveiled a statue of the late King of Pop outside its stadium in London yesterday. Apparently, team chairman Mohamed Al Fayed and Jackson were close friends.

Some fans were quick to voice their displeasure. And Al Fayed was just as quick to answer.

"If some stupid fans don't understand and appreciate such a gift, they can go to hell," he said. "I don't want them to be fans. If they don't understand and don't believe in things I believe in, they can go to Chelsea, they can go to anywhere else."
