Dr. Drew Alcoholics Snooki

Dr. Drew Alcoholics Snooki - Nicole “Snooki” Polizzo is a charming little fireball who took the world by storm with her guido and guidette friends on MTV’s Jersey Shore last year.

They became pop culture icons for their over-the-top personalities and penchant for alcohol binges and the indiscriminate sexual activity that can accompany it. Most people who have been to college, (or been between the ages of 18 and 23) have experienced at least a taste of this type of care-free, irresponsible behavior. For most of us, however, too much of this stuff can fail us out of college, ruin our job prospects, and have other fairly immediate consequences that usually leads to curbing behavior before we develop a more severe problem that can lead to crippling health problems, and other life-ruining type situations.

For the young adults on Jersey Shore, the more drunken, debauched behavior, the bigger their paychecks, fame, and opportunities. And that could lead to a dangerous path.

In May, when Snooki was filming Season 2 in Miami, the pint-sized star (she’s only 4’9″) drank so much she had to be hospitalized for alcohol poisoning. The curious thing about that scary incident is that the show’s producers didn’t report on the incident or air any of the footage on the show. It was a startling omission, since the show thrives on drama. What could be more dramatic than a frightening trip to the hospital? Were they purposefully missing out on an opportunity to show some of the gritty realities of binge drinking in order to justify continuing to encourage that type of behavior in their cast members?

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
