Stadium Jackass Banned
From the AP -
A baseball fan who jumped from the upper deck at Yankee Stadium onto the netting behind home plate has been banned for life from the ballpark and could be sent to jail, a judge said Wednesday.
Scott Harper, 19, of Armonk, N.Y., pleaded guilty Wednesday to reckless endangerment following last season’s plunge at the New York Yankees’ Bronx stadium. District Attorney Robert Johnson recommended probation and restitution to the Yankees, but Harper rejected the deal.
Harper’s criminal sentence, to be handed down Sept. 19, will depend on the outcome of another case in Westchester County for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, state Supreme Court Judge Troy Webber said.
I cannot believe it's a year later and they're still trying to figure out what to do with this clown.
Just lock him up already.

Funny that the Yanks are playing the White Sox a year later and we're hearing about this jumper again.
Last night's game was too tense for my nerves. Since Rivera's season is done vs. the White Sox (barring playoff appearances), he ended up with 5 IP, 5.40 ERA, 1.60 WHIP, and 3 saves in 4 chances. They seem to find a way to make him work every time out. Damn White Sox.
