Former San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders offensive tackle Kwame Harris will appear in San Mateo County Superior Court today on charges he assaulted his former boyfriend at a Menlo Park restaurant during an argument over soy sauce and underwear.

Harris, 30, is charged with felony counts of domestic violence causing great bodily injury and assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury in the Aug. 21, 2012 incident. He has pleaded not guilty but was held to answer after a preliminary hearing last fall. He is due back in court today for a pretrial conference to either settle the case or confirm a jury trial hearing.

The man, Dimitri Geier, is also suing Harris civilly for assault, battery, false imprisonment, negligence and both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

Harris and his alleged victim had been in a romantic relationship but were no longer involved when they met at Su Hong restaurant in Menlo Park, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti.

Harris’ attorney Alin Cintean confirms the pair were previously involved but were just friends at that point.

Harris was to drive Geier to San Francisco International Airport but instead became upset when he poured soy sauce on a plate of rice, according to the suit filed in San Mateo County Superior Court.

The men argued for approximately seven minutes and Harris said he would no longer take Geier to the airport, the suit states.
As the men left to remove Geier’s belongings from Harris’ car so that he could instead take a cab, Harris tried pulling the other man’s pants down and accused him of stealing his underwear, according to the suit.

Don't ever pour soy sauce on another man's rice.  Or steal his underwear.

Thank you.

Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – The 77-year-old Christian Brothers Academy baseball coach shot in the eye during the robbery of his North Side liquor store last week was back at work on Tuesday.


Thomas Dotterer was shot Wednesday night during the robbery of Salina Liquors and Wine.

For a time he was hospitalized in critical condition. He underwent surgery on his eye at the hospital and will travel to Philadelphia next Tuesday to see a specialist.

Thomas’s son Henry was at his side in the hospital. "There were moments where he was in and out, and at one of the moments I asked him, did he want to hear about the people who were stopping by or calling and he nodded his head yes,” Henry said.

His family said one of the first things he wanted to do after getting out of the hospital Monday was go back to the store.

Sitting in his liquor store Tuesday afternoon, Dotterer said, “Every day is great. Every day is great because every day I have an opportunity to meet new individuals and broaden my appreciation of what God has given us all to enjoy.”

Thomas says he used to be a "gloomy pessimist," an outlook on life that's changed over time and helped in his recovery.

"All things happen for a reason that preclude, maybe, present understanding, but you deal with the cards that you have dealt,” he said.

Yet, after all this, he joked that wrestling was what really ruined his week. "That's the worst thing that happened to me all week, the Rock beat Punk. Did you know that?"

Not Very Good Defense...

Carmelo Anthony set a New York Knicks record with his 30th 20 point game of the season last night vs. the Orlando Magic.  With defense like the Magic are playing in this photo, I could drop 20.

Is Andrew Bogut the Teen Wolf?

After struggling with injuries for most of his NBA career Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut has decided to think outside the box for treatment on his most recent ankle injury.  No longer limited by the constraints of Western medicine, Bogut has decided to become a werewolf to speed up his recovery.  A desperate move for a desperate man you say? Perhaps.  But it did wonders for that dude in Twilight with the torn ACL and the really long stupid haircut.  Bogut can only hope this controversial treatment can boost his career the way it did Beavers point guard Scott Howard.

*And yes, if you're scoring at home that's the second Teen Wolf reference we've made in the last month. You're welcome.

Bad News Brown vs. Michael Jenkins

Is it just me or does Michael Jenkins, WR from the Minnesota Vikings look a lot like former WWF wrestler Bad News Brown?

We think it's pretty uncanny.  In fact, the name actually fits too.  I know every time this Vikings fan tunes into a Vikes game and sees that Michael Jenkins is starting at WR the most natural response is to mumble "well, this is bad news..."

Bad News Brown had a finisher called the Ghetto Blaster (see below) while Michael Jenkins has the remarkable ability to turn a 4 yard catch into, well, a 4 yard catch.

Movie Sequels We Never Asked For

Hollywood is riddled with them.  
Sequels we never wanted or asked for.  There are many reasons they get made but most of them are money or ego.  Either way here's a list off the tops of our heads of some stinkers that never should have seen the light of day.

Taken 2: If you're like me the whole time you were watching the first movie you were thinking "I wonder what the parents of all the poor mobsters who are dying would think."  Oh, you didn't think that?  Well, some writer apparently did.

Jaws 3: If the years go by but the technology for the shark gets worse it's a bad sign.  And a crappy looking shark looks even crappier in 3D.

Caddyshack 2: No Ted Knight, no Bill Murray meant this never should have been made.  Ask the average person and they don't even know this film exists.

Speed 2: Cruise Control: It's okay to admit you caught lightning in a bottle with the first movie and sometimes sequels in which the main star doesn't return can succeed....but on a cruise ship?  Honestly.

Teen Wolf Too: The movie Jason Bateman wishes you never knew existed.  We wish it too Jason.

Alien 3: Hey David Fincher, all that cool stuff that Ridley Scott and James Cameron did with the first two Alien movies - yeah you just ruined it.

Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon: Essentially Michael Bay's excuse to blow up more stuff and shoot things in slow motion.  Forget about the minor details of plot and acting.

Weekend at Bernie's II: Wait, he's still dead and they haven't buried him yet?  Yeeech.

US Marshals: Sadly, on its own it isn't a terrible movie.  But it isn't The Fugitive and Wesley Snipes sure as heck isn't Harrison Ford.

Dumb and Dumberer: Even Cheri O'Teri, Eugene Levy and Bob Sagat couldn't save this horrible prequel that only made us watch the original to wash that crappy taste away.

Terminator 3: Arnie, man you should have known better.  James Cameron was the Terminator franchise and without him on board this one didn't have a chance.

*So, here's a few we wish would've stayed in the can - have a few you wish were never made?  Let us know in the comments section.
