Bryant sued by Grizzlies fan

Posted: 58 minutes ago

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Kobe Bryant is being sued by an Arkansas man, who claims the Los Angeles Lakers star deliberately elbowed him during a Memphis Grizzlies’ game last year.

Bill Geeslin sat in the stands when the Lakers played in Memphis last Nov. 14. His three-page federal lawsuit filed Tuesday claims that Bryant came off the court during play, landed on Geeslin and “without provocation” committed assault and battery when he struck Geeslin with his elbow.

Geeslin claims seeks more than $75,000 in damages for unspecified injuries that required medical attention.

Geeslin’s attorney, Robert Coleman, declined to elaborate on the filing Wednesday but said he hadn’t been in contact with Bryant’s attorneys or agent.

A call to Bryant’s agent seeking comment was not immediately returned.

The Grizzlies won last year’s game 85-73.


R.I.P. Ed Bradley

This one hurts. If you’ve read my book, you know how I felt about him. I have such vivid memories of watching 60 Minutes every Sunday evening with my mother and grandmother. I can’t imagine how many black people went into the news business because they saw Mr. Bradley putting the screws to some poor schmuck.


Ed Bradley of ’60 Minutes’ Dies at 65

Ed Bradley, the veteran “60 Minutes” correspondent and one of the pioneering black journalists of his generation, died today of leukemia. He was 65.

Bradley, who had won 19 Emmy awards, covered an incredible array of stories after joining the CBS newsmagazine in 1981, from brain cancer to sexual abuse in the Catholic Church to the high school shootings at Columbine.

He also reported a number of award-winning documentaries, covered political conventions and filled in on the “CBS Evening News” and other programs.

Bradley remained active on “60 Minutes,” but he had been ill for some time and underwent heart surgery about a year ago.

“He was this gentle giant,” said Bob Schieffer, CBS’s chief Washington correspondent and a close friend. “He just did so much for so many African-American kids. He was a great role model.”

Live from New York…it’s TSOYA!

My man Jesse Thorn is taking his successful radio show/podcast, The Sound of Young America, on the road. He’s hitting New York City on November 10th for two shows. Here’s Jesse himself to tell you all about it.

Tickets to each show are only $10, and proceeds benefit your favorite public radio show, but tickets are also extremely limited, so be sure to get your tickets now.

“If you’ve never heard The Sound of Young America, then The Sound of Young America is the greatest radio show you’ve never heard.” –

8PM Show Lineup

David Wain is a founding member of Stella and The State, as well as the director of “Wet Hot American Summer.” His new film, “The Ten,” is a comic look at the ten commandments, starring Paul Rudd and Winona Ryder, among many others.

Mike Daisey is a monologist and author, whose new show “Truth {the heart is a million little pieces above all things}” is currently running at Ars Nova. The New York Times called him “the master storyteller… one of the finest solo performers of his generation.”

Heather Lawless is an acclaimed standup comedian, and the co-founder of the popular monthly show The Variety Shac. She can be seen on Comedy Central’s recent “Invite Them Up” compilation, and was featured on MTV2′s “Wonder Showzen” this year.

Tanya Morgan is not a soul singer, but rather a hip-hop group, whose debut release, “Moonlighting,” has been acclaimed by The Source and received 4.5 stars from Pitchfork Media.

10PM Show Lineup

Kurt Andersen is the host of Public Radio International’s “Studio 360,” public radio’s premier arts newsmagazine. He was also the co-founder of America’s last great satirical magazine, “Spy,” and is the co-editor of the new retrospective book, “Spy: The Funny Years.”

Jonathan Coulton is a comic singer-songwriter who has been heard on The Daily Show and National Public Radio. His sensitive and hilarious songs tell stories of computer programmers and evil robot warlords in love. And other, more normal stuff.

Elephant Larry is a New York-based sketch comedy group who have been acclaimed thusly by El Tiempo de Nueva York: “A hilarious multimedia mix of the deadpan and the maniacal. The sketches call to mind, variously, Monty Python, Kids in the Hall and Second City, yet they don’t feel like knockoffs.”

Andres du Bouchet is a standout in the New York City standup scene. You may have seen him on “Tough Crowd,” or on Comedy Central’s “I Love the ’30s”.

Possibly special guests: We’ve got a little space in the late show for drop-in guests, and have a couple of maybes we can’t tell you about. Maybe we’ll just have Coulton stretch, but maybe you’ll get to see someone awesome.
