January 4, 2004

Today's celebrity gossip mixes pity with pleasure. First, the pity, brought to us by a travelling reader:

I'm pretty sure Mike Fairbourne was in front of me in the line at the Starbucks in the Airport's C Terminal on Thursday at around 7AM. He seemed very lonely and bought one of those giant brownies and a tall coffee. Maybe one of your readers should send him some flowers.

Perhaps we will take up a collection.

And now for the pleasure part, and by that we mean shaming local celebrities. Today's shaming is focused on WCCO sports announcer Mark Rosen.

An Open Letter to Mark Rosen:

Dear Mark:

We have had two confirmed reports that you are a bad tipper and one confirmed report that you really like potato skins from TGI Fridays (we hear you get up to SIX plates at a time!!). Everybody we heard from on this issue was a college student. That means that they are poor and most likely need extra money to purchase togas or IPods or whatever it is college kids are into these days. You are not a hobo. You are a successful sportscaster and restaurant owner- these kids know that you can afford to throw some extra cash their way. So Mark: stop being a douchebag and let's make with the tipping, okay? Shape up and you might not see yourself on this site again.

Slanderous Minneapolis

As always, goodness goes here:
If you have complaints, we'll shame people until they shape up. That's our crazy style.
