He was on ESPN radio with Jalen Rose all last week, guess that was enough to piss him off.

Hitting a woman is about as low as it gets.

77th Street Station? Good heavens, that's South-Central ... maybe the most embattled of all LAPD Divisions.

Where tf does Mariotti live?

Says he lives in Venice, but Venice lies within the Pacific Division ... 77th is ten miles away.
