    The Orange County Register’s Sam Miller has a cornucopia of denials. Just awesome.

    Juan Carlos Oviedo aka Leo Nuneez, got popped in the Dominican for using fake ID.

    Why on earth is Lovitz the article photo?

      Nevermind – just noticed the last line.

      “Acting! “Brilliant!!!”

      I knew it wasn’t just me!! I swear I said the exact same thing. If that’s not Lovitz it’s his twin brother. I’m sitting there for 2 minutes wondering what connection Lovitz has with the headline and what is the joke I’m missing.

        Ok, I missed that too. This has really frazzled me……

        The Angels hired Lovitz to be Pujols’ talent manager.

    Maybe they were shocked because they didn’t think anybody knew?
