Perhaps we're doing it all wrong ...
Sure, Los Angeles and New England are in MLS Cup and I should spend some time breaking down the game. I'm sure I will. But that's not really why I started this blog in the first place.

In the police report, witnesses claimed Thomas and Keathley were having sex with each other in a stall when other patrons grew angry that the two were taking so long in the bathroom.

Another woman waiting to use the bathroom got into an argument with the two, and Thomas hit that person in the face, according to details of the report posted on, the CBS TV affiliate's Web site.

Basically, what I'm saying is that the ChivaGirls and Metrogirls really have to step it up.
