In a rare twist of events, Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has revealed his desire to don the famous Red Devil’s jersey; not as a fan, but a player! The 100m champ was captured in a video clip showing his dribbling skills as he enjoyed the game of football with his friends. In the video, the renowned sprinter is quoted saying, “Make sure Alex Ferguson sees this.” The footage was part of a documentary (Usain Bolt: Fastest Man Alive) that highlights the superstar’s rise to fame.
On a serious note, Manchester United’s defender, Rio Ferdinand tweeted that he was planning to have a word with Sir Alex Ferguson over Usain Bolt’s interest to join the club. This news created a buzz over the internet with the latest prank photos suggesting how Usain Bolt would look donning the famous Manchester United’s jersey.
The footage shows the 25- year- old sprinter lacing his playing boots in readiness for the game. But when he was asked about the fact that he’s risking injury, he explained that he wouldn’t wish his coach to see the footage until after the Olympics.
He is also quoted saying that he believes in enjoying life and that is why he decided to play soccer with his friends. The Jamaican sprint master has always declared his love for English Premier League side, Manchester United. According to The Sun Newspaper, Usain Bolt admitted that if he is called up for trials at Old Trafford, he will easily accept the offer. He was heard joking, “If I’m called upon, I will not only be a player, but the fastest of all.”
Bolt has an amazing fan base all over the world for his incredible speed on the 100m track. A Manchester United official who didn’t want to be named because he is not authorized to communicate on behalf of the club expressed his optimism that Bolt will definitely add speed to the Club’s playing unit. It will be interesting to see Bolt wearing the famous red jersey; but only if Sir Alex approves his skills.Read More

If you thought that fame and fortune was enough to protect you from the law, boy would you be wrong.
In fact, it seems that just about every other day we’re told of a new story regarding a celebrity who
has found themselves in an unfortunate situation. However, the drunken tomfoolery of celebrities like
Lindsay Lohan will seem like child’s play when compared to the severity of cases other celebrities have
been subject to. Enter the L.A. Kings’ Drew Doughty.
Doughty, a 22 year old hockey player for the Los Angeles Kings, was picked 2 nd overall in the 2008 NHL
Draft. In the few short years that Doughty has been an L.A. Kings member, things have been going
quite well for him. Not only did he accrue a gold medal in the 2010 Winter Olympics but he has been a
valuable asset to the Kings’ defense.
But, going back to what was previously said, being famous, rich and/or extremely good at something will
not save you from the law. In fact, some may even say that being these things make you a prime target
for those looking to get a quick payday.
Recently, Drew Doughty came under fire in a rape investigation. As the story goes, Doughty met a
woman at a bar in Hermosa Beach, CA. The two apparently hit it off with the night ended at Doughty’s
house. Following the meeting, the woman claimed that Doughty forced her to have sex with him thus
spurring a rape investigation by the local authorities. Originally, many wondered if Doughty would
ultimately end up behind bars but it seems that L.A. Kings fans can rest easy.
It’s just been made known that Drew Doughty has officially been cleared of all charges. The L.A. County
District Attorney’s Office went on record as saying there was too much doubt in the woman’s testimony
to believe their sexual intercourse was anything less than consensual. Thus, the investigation has been
dropped and Drew Doughty will be free to skate another day.
Ah yes, Michael Vick; the story of a convicted celebrity who managed to turn his life around with a few
hiccups along the way. If you’re not familiar with the ordeal that Vick found himself in, it all started
back in 2007. After a very successful run with the Atlantic Falcons, the number 1 NFL draft pick was
served with a search warrant. Upon searching Vick’s mansion the authorities came to the conclusion
that he was hosting and financially supporting a massive underground dog fighting ring. Quite obviously,
this didn’t settle too well in courts as Vick was served with a 23 month jail sentence and was banned
from owning animals for several years after the debacle. The horrors for Vick didn’t stop there as the
once successful NFL player found himself filing for bankruptcy and wondering if the NFL would let him
play ever again. Lucky for him, he managed to largely rehabilitate his image and was picked up by the
Philadelphia Eagles in 2009 where he currently serves as their starting quarterback. But, if you thought
that Vick would be able to leave the past where it belongs, you would be wrong.
Vick recently took to CNN where he sat down for an interview with Piers Morgan. The topic of his
previous conviction came up. After talking for a bit, Vick stated that he would like to eventually gift his
children with a puppy once the ban on him owning animals expired. This seemingly innocent remark
caused quite the storm over at the ASPCA who came forth to give Vick a piece of their mind.
According to the anti-animal cruelty outfit, Vick should not be allowed to own a dog now or ever. The
organization went on to say that they feel Vick has not expressed regret for what he’s done instead
simply focusing on the consequences of getting caught. Despite serving his entire sentence for what he’s
done, the ASPCA still feels he has not been rehabilitated to the point where he has a “direct concern for
the wellbeing of animals”.
As of now, Vick has yet to come forth and comment but we would say it’s safe to assume that he soon
will. What exactly he will say in regards to the entire thing remains a mystery but we will certainly keep
