World's Worst Boyfriend!
The world's worst boyfriend has been sentenced to six months in jail. We're talking about 31-year-old Adam Manning of Bountiful, Utah who actually fondled a hospital maternity nurse who was wheeling the man's pregnant girlfriend to the delivery room! Manning pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of felony attempted forcible sexual abuse. His defense attorney actually argued that Mr. Manning shouldn't be held responsible for the fondling of the nurse because his behavior resulted from a brain injury following a vehicle crash 10 years ago. Of course since he was arrested right after the incident, he completely missed the birth of his child. The judge also ordered Manning to undergo psychosexual, mental health and substance abuse evaluations and treatment. (SF Gate) Pimp!!

Stadium Announcement TODAY

Chancellor Boschini, Chris Del Conte and the rest of the folks in charge at TCU are obviously readers of Spit Blood, as they have finally given in to my childish impatience and called a press conference for 1:30pm today to officially announce plans for the renovation of Amon G. Carter Stadium. Check back here this afternoon, as I'm sure one of us will post any information/pictures that we come across.
