What the hell is going on with athletes, lately? Well, athletes AND their significant others/ accomplices.
If you haven’t heard there are a few wild stories out there regarding athletes and their alleged activities…and I’m going to break ’em down for you.
Burner Accounts: Not just for GM’s Wives
In Ottawa, Senators’ D Eric Karlsson and his wife, filed a restraining order against Monika Caryk, the long-time girlfriend of Senators’ teammate, Mike Hoffman.
Turns out, Caryk (below), had orchestrated a one-person social media harassment campaign, culminating with taunting the Karlsson’s about their stillborn son.
She’s “allegedly” a disgusting piece of trash.
If you ask me, she looks like she’s central casting for “woman who spends time setting up burner accounts to harass another woman over the death of their unborn son.”
To Hoffman…it’s time for a wake up call. Your name’s been trashed, you got traded twice in one day, and clearly this chick is going to be boiling bunnies soon. Maybe lose her on your way to Florida…or wherever they trade you to.
This story is wild, and goes down as the second biggest Ottawa Senators based disaster this year…the first being their roster. Luckily, for the front office, this helps facilitate the complete tear-down of the team, as they try build toward relevancy…not an easy feat for a team who plays in potentially North America’s most forgotten city.
Should have gone with the banana in the tailpipe
In another player vs. player + GF/Wife, we have HS-NCAA-NFL teammates, Lito Sheppard and Jabar Gaffney.
This feud reportedly dates back to 2012, and culminated this week, with an incident that occurred while Sheppard was dining out.
Sheppard was at dinner at a restaurant in Jacksonville Beach, Florida last week and left to find that his car had been vandalized while he was eating. Sheppard watched surveillance video taken by the restaurant and, per a police report, found that he recognized Gaffney and his girlfriend as the vandals.
“Gaffney retrieved some type of tool and a container from the suspect’s vehicle, walked over to the passenger’s side of the victim’s vehicle near the gas tank, and pried it open,” the report said, via First Coast News. “Gaffney then poured an unknown substance from the container into the gas tank … The unknown female walked around the vehicle and stabbed all of the tires with a sharp object.”
So, Gaffney and his GF, what, followed Sheppard from his house to a restaurant, with the sole purpose of putting some shit in his gas tank? They must’ve…because they had to pre-plan, and bring the “tool” and “container”. This is some real, psycho shit. I’d have expected this type of thing from Reche Caldwell (I mean look at him)…but not Gaffney.
I just need to know more about this feud. How did it start? What other incidents have occurred? I bet there is a LOT there. I don’t mean to imply that the reporters covering this incident aren’t doing their job, but did they not ask, like, one follow up question.
WE NEED TO KNOW!!!!
And this brings us to Hanley…you’ve heard about this one, no doubt.
If we’re to believe what is out there in reports, some dude got pulled over. Police asked to search his car, and he says “Sure, but you definitely can’t look in that box”. Criminal mastermind, this guy. My 3 year old does a better job hiding the remote from me.
The police, presumably, ask “Why not”. And this guy says, “It’s not mine, it belongs to Hanley Ramirez”…Wow. Selling out his boy real quick. Or maybe he was namedropping, like he’s trying to get out of a speeding ticket or something.
Either way, he apparently proceeded to FaceTime Hanley, with the police there, I’m guessing to try to get him to explain to the cops that the box in the car- filled with Crack-cocaine and fentanyl- belongs to him. Seriously…this guy is a real genius.
Reportedly, Hanley actually took the call (who answers phone calls?!?!), but no word on what he said.
Now, I’m not condoning anyone go into a vast criminal enterprise…but if you’re going to…you can’t entrust anything to someone this stupid. The HTTA lesson here: KNOW WHO YOU’RE GOING INTO BUSINESS WITH.
This story is developing, and I for one, can’t wait to see how it ends. For now, I’ll say, I’m a little concerned if I’m the FaceTime guy:
