Faced with Ron Artest dominating the news for much of the autumn, the hyper-competitive Milton Bradley has responded like a true gamer — challenging a traffic cop who had stopped another motorist to arrest him.

The Red Sox beating Pat Tillman for Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman Of The Year award, I can accept, but Bradley oughta demand a recount.

Seriously, folks, when I saw the headline reading “Bradley Held In Traffic Dispute”, I was praying the cops had violated Shawn Bradley’s civil rights.
