Remember Tiger King? You know, that show we all watched on Netflix. It felt like three years ago but really it hasn’t even been three months. Even though the show is over, it’s just like the jelly of the month club, a gift that keeps on giving.
Carole Baskin began the week on top of Tiger Mountain. The show’s antagonist received her reward for winning a $1 million judgment in a copyright infringement case against Joe Exotic. Of course, Joe didn’t have the money to pay up, so Baskin fought to take anything and everything from him in court. On Monday a judge gave Baskin ownership and control of Joe’s zoo in Oklahoma.
Just like in the documentary, the pendulum quickly swung back against Baskin.
Throughout her battles with Joe Exotic, the Tiger King often insisted that Baskin murdered her late husband, Don Lewis, and fed him to her tigers to inherit his vast fortune. The circumstances surrounding his disappearance were suspicious, to say the least. Then this week Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister told WTSP the will that gave Baskin Lewis’ vast fortune was in fact foraged. “They had two experts deem it 100 percent a forgery. But, we knew that…we knew that before.”
For those hoping this would take down Baskin, I have some bad news. The statute of limitations pertaining to the forgery has passed. Will she ever pay the pied piper? Hopefully, but until then she’ll continue to enjoy time with all of Joe’s cool cats and kittens in Oklahoma.
Yikes, Mike Norvell
Florida State threw $14 million at Willie Taggert to go away. His successor, Mike Norvell, is off to some kind of start in Tallahassee. After the head coach told the media he spoke to all of his players individually about the nationwide protests, senior team captain Marvin Wilson called BS.
Man this ? did not happen mane. We got a generated text that was sent to everybody. There was no one on one talk between us and coach. This is a lie and me and my teammates as a whole are outraged and we will not be working out until further notice ? #hunchoout https://t.co/6Uuy6K7Eu3

World’s Strongest Punter Stays in College
Arizona State’s Michael Turk turned heads at the NFL Combine. The yolked punter set a new record for specialists on the bench, completing 25 reps of 225 pounds. Apparently, the rest of his workouts did not go so well.
Turk did not get picked in the NFL Draft. Even though he had already signed an agent, the Sun Devils requested a waiver for Turk to regain his eligibility. Citing Turk’s inability to work out individually for NFL teams and at ASU’s pro day because of coronavirus, the NCAA granted Turk’s request. It’s the first time NCAA has granted a waiver for a player who had declared, signed with an agent and gone through the NFL Draft process through the end.
If the NCAA is doing this for Michael Turk, they’ve gotta let Olivier Sarr play for UK in 2020-21, right?
