Lorraine Lewandrowski, who tweets under the moniker @NYFarmer, posted updates Tuesday morning from her sister’s veterinary office, as she treated a pit bull for dozens of quill piercings after the fight.

    To have police officers arrest your wife for not doing your shirts is not only horribly sexist but also should be a divorce-able offence. Dulce Requena Garcia, 21,  was taken to the nearby police station in Tampico, Mexico where she was fined the equivalent of £16, and as she did not have the ready cash she was locked up for 12 hours instead. The guilty husband and truck driver, Edgar Ivan Perez Alvarado, complained that when he got home after work he wanted a change of clothes to go out with friends, his wife refused to iron them.

  • Luke Ridnour joins Raptors in 4th trade in 6 days, and his saga's not done yet

    The NBA's 2015 free agency period hasn't even officially begun yet, but it's hard to imagine a more surprising and bizarre story unfolding than the one in which Luke Ridnour has starred over the past week. After being employed by five teams over the course of a 12-year NBA career, the veteran point guard has now been employed by — or, more accurately, had his rights owned by — five teams in the span of six days. The latest team to get into the Luke Ridnour business: the Toronto Raptors, who picked him up from the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday in exchange for the rights to Tomislav Zubcic, a 25-year-old big man whom Toronto selected late in the second round of the 2012 NBA draft.

  • DeAndre Jordan is visiting four teams, including Knicks and Lakers

    Despite concerns over his free-throw shooting and ability to score when not catching alley-oops, Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan is absolutely one of the most coveted unrestricted free agents set to hit the market on July 1. Hyper-athletic 26-year-old big men coming off All-NBA Third Team selections rarely become available, to the point where Jordan is nearly certain to obtain a max-level contract even with some clear holes in his game. The 26-year-old free agent center who spent his first seven seasons with the Clippers is clearly giving serious thought to changing jerseys, as three people with knowledge of his situation said he is expected to meet with at least four teams — the Clippers, Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks — in the first few days of free agency.
