His roommate was found dead in the hotel room and Heinie Schuble got away with it.  Even Pat Mullin couldn't figure it out.

What a terrible human being Chad Curtis was.  We all know about his being a sex offender.  

As a player, he was a religious fanatic who chastised other players for their "sins".  One time Gibson blew up at him for that.  What a hypocrite.

True story about Shane Halter.  Me and my friends were sitting up at a bar one evening having a couple beers and these two guys were sitting next to us. 

They are showing Tigers highlights from the game earlier in the day and they showed Halter on there.  The guy next to me Says something along the lines of Halter being a bum.  I turn to look at him and sure enough it was Shane Halter himself.   It was pretty funny.

Good work, Biff.  I was mildly concerned when Grilli's birthday passed and no one had yet posted this image.
