or, Tejada won’t be leaving the United States anytime soon, says Ryan.

Last week, Miguel Tejada pleaded guilty to making a false representation to Congressional investigators in 2005.  Tejada is a former Baltimore Orioles baseball player and was the 2002 American League MVP.  Now he plays for some lesser team — the Astros, maybe?  Anyway, in 2005 he represented he wasn’t involved in the whole steroid thing.  Now, he says he was:

In a signed statement attached to his plea deal, Tejada also acknowledged buying $6,300 of human growth hormone from a teammate in 2003. But he told authorities that, after purchasing the drugs, he had second thoughts and threw them out, assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel Butler said at the hearing.

Umm, yeah, I believe that. Remember, this is the guy who lied about his age until ESPN confronted him with his birth certificate. (more…)

Here’s something I don’t understand.  The latest Star Trek trailer is out.  I think it was shown during the SuperBowl, or maybe released online earlier and then shown on TV, but I’m not sure because I didn’t watch.

Anyway, I went to watch the trailer on YouTube, but I couldn’t — “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Paramount Pictures Corp.”  What?  Why would you pull your own movie trailer from YouTube?  In other words, why are you preventing people from watching the commercial for your movie?
