Thanks Doc. Julius saves the day.

SANTA FE, NM (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) Julius Erving, the high flying basketball legend who almost singlehandedly put the old ABA (American Basketball Association) on the sports landscape, and later led the Philadelphia 76ers to four NBA finals in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, was certainly used to operating on the floor. However, the “Doctor” or “Dr. J” as he was called, had to do a different kind of operating yesterday.

Erving, who was in Santa Fe, New Mexico for an autograph show, signed hundreds of pictures, basketballs and apparel for adoring fans. About an hour into the event, 49 year old Horace Finster, who described himself as one of Erving’s biggest fans, suddenly collapsed to the floor grasping the right side of his abdomen writhing in pain.

Outta the Hoop. Corey Adams has been stuck in the same day in 1967 for forty-one years. Here is the last known photo of Adams as he prepares for a college game (circa 1966). He will be transported to 2009 next week and begin an NBA career that’s been stalled for decades.

Outta the Hoop. Corey Adams has been stuck in the same day in 1967 for forty-five years. Here is the last known photo of Adams as he prepares for a college game (circa 1966). He will be transported to 2014 next week and begin an NBA career this fall that’s been stalled for decades.

TRENTON, NJ (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service)  — Corey Adams is 22 years old, and by his own admission hasn’t been able step out of the 1960’s. But he’s not speaking figuratively. Adams is not a 21st century kid living in the past by listening to his dad’s old Beatles 45’s or watching Get Smart on YouTube. He’s actually stuck in a time-space continuum and has lived the same day over and over, March 12, 1967, for the past forty-five years.

Adams has been able to communicate with those living in 2014 through a tiny spatial wormhole located just behind the tube of Brycreem on his dresser. (more…)


Delusional Scalper Tries to Hock Forty Year Old ABA Ticket

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

Old School (of hard knocks) for one unfortunate scalper.

WASHINGTON DC (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) Cornelius “Corny” Peppers was known to fans in the Washington DC metro as the “man to meet” when it came to getting great seats to area sporting events.  He was the scalper’s scalper. In the late 1960’s throughout the 1970’s and 80’s, you  could count on tickets for anything. From the Redskins and Washington Bullets to the expansion Senators, Peppers could deliver.

But as times changed, Peppers refused to change with them. His style of discreetly hanging out between cars, away from the authorities, was replaced by a coordinated network of cell phone and Blackberry using smooth talkers decked out in game worn jerseys. Peppers would occasionally attract the old timers, but they were dying off.

Now the 61 year old has retreated further and further into an alcoholic haze and rarely scares up any sought after tickets.

“Corny’s lost it,” said veteran scalper Roosevelt “Butterfly” Hayes. “It’s really tragic. He was the gold standard. Now he’s a God damned punch line. The final straw began last week when he started hocking that old ABA ticket of his. The man’s living in a fool’s paradise.” (more…)
