Real Madrid Signs 7 Year Old

MADRID (AP) — Real Madrid has signed a 7-year-old soccer prodigy from Argentina who goes by the name Leo — just like Lionel Messi.

Leonel Angel Coira signed with the Spanish club and will begin training Sept. 6, Madrid spokesman Juan Tapiador told The Associated Press on Monday.

Coira told the Argentine sports daily Ole last week that his idol is Messi, the Barcelona forward who is also Argentine and goes by the name Leo. Coira said he prefers to pass rather than score. He already has a Facebook page featuring photos of his visit to Real Madrid.

Madrid reportedly made the push to sign Coira because Spanish league rival Atletico Madrid was also pursuing the youngster.

Barcelona signed Messi from the Argentine club Newell’s Old Boys as a teenager and he has gone on to win the World Player of the Year award two times. He also has helped Barcelona win 15 trophies, including three Champions League titles and five Spanish league championships.

I can see it now. A minute before game time and the kid’s dad tries to whip out some father son bonding.

Vikings drop off dead weight


Size is what helped Bryant McKinnie(notes) become a Pro Bowl offensive lineman for the Minnesota Vikings and the recipient of a 2006 contract extension that was close to $50 million. Size is what caused him to get cut by the team on Tuesday.

McKinnie showed up to Vikings training camp weighing nearly 400 pounds, 65 pounds above last season’s official playing weight. Judd Zugland of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported that McKinnie’s girth was the “final straw” with the team. On Monday, the 31-year-old lineman was placed on the non-football injury list. The next day, he was gone.

The Vikings will avoid McKinnie’s $5.4 million cap number for 2011 as a result of the release.

There’s always a fine line in the NFL between acceptably heavy and too heavy. Guys on the line, like McKinnie, have to be big enough to open gaps for running backs and prevent the pass rush but athletic enough to stay on the field for a three-hour game and make it through training camp. Teams want their linemen bigger and bigger, up to a point. Once that tipping point is reached, they’re done with you.

McKinnie’s talent kept him in a Vikings uniform even through myriad off-field issues. He was suspended for four games in 2008 after his involvement in a Miami brawl and was instrumental in the team’s embarrassing Love Boat incident. Last year, McKinnie was booted from the Pro Bowl team.

He insisted to TMZ that the release was of his own doing, an interesting statement on a number of levels, the biggest of which is that Bryant McKinnie talks to TMZ about his football contract.

McKinnie said he’ll be ready for next year with a different team. During his break, he’d be wise to remember that the Vikings just proved the old adage true: Size matters.

Not much to say here. I guess a picture is worth a thousand words. ^

Dad naps. Kid does hoodrat stuff…

LIVINGSTON PARISH, La.  — A Missississippi man let his 8-year-old son drive on Interstate 12 while he slept, Louisiana State Police reported Saturday.

State police said they received a call shortly after 6:30 a.m. Saturday about a green Chevrolet pickup truck driving erratically on the interstate in Livingston Parish. The caller told police that a child appeared to be the driver of the pickup.

Troopers stopped the vehicle, and they said a boy was driving the truck while his father, Billy Joe Madden, 28, of Hattiesburg, Miss., slept in the passenger seat.

DNA tracks down crappy dog owners

CONWAY, Mass (Reuters) – Some pet owners who failed to clean up after their dogs got a nasty surprise from apartment complex manager Deb Logan.

Using DNA evidence, Logan started fining the irresponsible dog owners $100 per offense.

Logan, property manager at Twin Ponds in Nashua, New Hampshire, started using a dog DNA-testing system to reveal which pooches were leaving feces scattered about outside.

Logan says the DNA technology called “PooPrints”, developed by BioPet Vet Labs of Knoxville, Tennessee, is working “amazingly” well for Twin Ponds, a 339-unit complex that is home to about 241 dogs.

Right. What if your dog sneaks out of the house and drops some poop? Are you supposed to pick up all the poop you see so you don’t get fined?

What’s next? Urine DNA analysis to see who dribbled on the toilet seat?

Also, who thinks up a business that analyzes dog poop?
