Looks like another Jordan release has left two people stabbed in Pennsylvania while waiting in line for the shoes. The suspect is pictured above and his name is Carlos Mejia. The shoes they were anticipating buying were the “Olympic” Jordan 7′s which were released yesterday. Incidents like this really shine a light on how ugly American consumerism can be when it comes to putting way too much value into tangible objects. No single person should suffer from an event like this one over a pair of $160 shoes. Remember that “Rich is not what you have, it’s who you have beside you”.

Man I knew this lockout would be bad for all the players, off the field. Apparently Jason Hunter was arguing with his girlfriend about a bag of cell phones she found which then turned into her throwing a knife at him. She then took him to the ER because she did not intend on the knife actually stabbing him. When they arrived to the ER Jason Hunter pointed out to the police what happened and she was then arrested. Hunter should be fine and this won’t affect his football career but he might want to move on to a new girl that doesn’t like throwing knives.
