Luis Suarez Issues Apology to Giorgio Chiellini

Luis Suarez, a member of the Uruguay national team  has issued an apology to Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini for biting him during a World Cup match.

Luis Suarez Apologizes for Biting Italian PlayerThe Liverpool and Uruguay striker, who vows to  never bite again said in a statement posted on Twitter on Monday that he ” deeply regrets what occurred,” and that “the truth is that my colleague Giorgio Chiellini suffered the physical result of a bite in the collision he suffered with me.”

As a result of his actions, he was given a total four-month ban from football on top of a nine-game international suspension.

A club in Kosovo has offered Luis Suarez 1500 euros ($2250) a month to boost their forward line while he serves his ban for biting.

Kosovo is not covered by Suarez’s worldwide suspension as it is not an official member of UEFA or FIFA so Suarez could theoretically play in their Super League.

Kosovo side Hajvalia made the proposition in a letter to the Uruguayan’s Premier League club Liverpool.

Joan Rivers Just Needs Zip Up Those Saline Filled Lips

Despite public, media and social networking  outrage, lowlife comedian Joan Rivers keeps joking about the Cleveland women held captive by Ariel Castro.

Joan Rivers Rude and Classless CommentsJust days after comparing her living arrangements on her reality show to what the women faced, Rivers kept it up.

The classless comedian told  TMZ, the celebrity gossip website, that Gina DeJesus and Amanda Berry should not complain: “They got to live rent free for more than a decade . . . One of them has a book deal. Neither are in a psych ward. They’re OK. I bet you within three years one of them will be on Dancing with the Stars.”

And she went on. In an apparent reference to a lack of sense of humor, she said, “The TV the guy gave them must not have had SNL.”

In her latest comments, Rivers only spoke about two of the women, DeJesus and Berry, whose attorneys blasted her initial remarks, saying they hit a “new low.” The third victim is Michelle Knight, whose attorney could not be reached for comment.

On Tuesday, Rivers talked on The Today Show about her WEtv series, “Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best?” that features Rivers living with her daughter. It was there while discussing her living arrangements, that she brought up the three Cleveland women who were held captive by Castro.

“Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more room,” Rivers said.

Joan Rivers Refuses ApologyIn a Wednesday interview with The Plain Dealer, Rivers defended herself: “I’m a comedienne. I know what those girls went through. It was a little, stupid joke. There is nothing to apologize for. I made a joke. That’s what I do. Calm down. Calm f—– down. I’m a comedienne. They’re free, so let’s move on.”

On Thursday, The Today Show said it did not condone Rivers’ statements.

The attorneys for DeJesus and Berry were not amused by her comments.

“Our clients have become aware of Joan Rivers’ unfortunate comparison of living in her daughter’s guest room to their captivity,” said a statement from lawyers James Wooley and Heather Kimmel.

“We understand that Ms. Rivers is a comedienne; however, the idea that a celebrity would say something this hurtful, on national television, no less, is beyond shocking and disappointing.

“Our clients are strong, private women who have endured unwanted and often painful media attention for quite some time. They now have to endure this, which is a new low, and we believe a sincere apology is warranted.”

Here is what readers are saying about Rivers’ comments.

Calling someone a cheater can taint one’s legacy, so don’t expect Tiger to take it lying down, writes Farrell Evans. Story

“When I was in the fourth grade, I cheated on a math test and when I got the paper back it had ‘100’ written at the top and just below the grade, was this quote, ‘Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!’ It was an oft-quoted line from the epic poem ‘Marmion‘ by Sir Walter Scott, and my teacher’s message was clear,” Chamblee wrote. “Written once more beneath that quote was my grade of ‘100,’ but this time with a line drawn through it and beneath that an F. I never did ask my teacher how she knew I cheated and I certainly didn’t protest the grade. I knew I had done the wrong thing and my teacher the right, but I never forgot the way I felt when I read that quote.  Read full story at ESPN.com
