23 November 2008


Before Demps just ran that kickoff back, I was feeling like going Jimmy Connors all over town. (Alas, the Santa Barbara News-Press site requires membership, and I don't feel like signing up, so here's the TMZ brief).

Former tennis star, Jimmy Connors was arrested Friday night at the UC Santa Barbara Thunderdome.
A UCSB campus police rep tells us that Connors was arrested and taken into custody after refusing to leave the area after he was asked by police following a confrontation. The incident occurred at the front entrance during the beginning of a basketball game. Connors was later booked and released.
Connors was well known for his temper tantrums on the court during the 70s. A rep for Connors could not be reached for comment.
