What kind of beer do you like? Heineken!?! Fuck that shit! PABST! Blue Ribbon!

After blue collar workers--and before the hipsters--Pabst Blue Ribbon was most appreciated by Frank Booth, the sick pup brought to career-resurrecting life in the movie Blue Velvet by the late, great Dennis Hopper. An Orange County city that seems like a crossing station for blue collar workers, hipsters and Frank Boothians is Huntington Beach, where Saturday has been proclaimed "PBR Day in Surf City USA."

Robber in Raiders sweatshirt calls an audible to the liquor store cashier.

The hardest part about being a Raiders fan is not the consecutive losses strung over two seasons, the revolving door for head coaches or an ownership more interested in moving a team than fielding one. Nope, it's having to be associated with thugs and thieves who don't know a pro-set formation from a probation officer. Take the armed robber of a Stanton market Tuesday night ... PLEASE!

Two famous Doyers

Tonight, the Los Angeles Dodgers are going to face off against the St. Louis Cardinals, with their National League Divisional Series tied at 1-1. But the big news in Dodgers land was a laughable column written by a columnist for the Torrance Daily Breeze, arguing that saying "los Doyers" is racist. "Los Doyers," of course, is by now as much a part of Southern California lingo as the Orange Crush and Fontucky--but for this guy, it's raaaaacist.

His argument is here; by rebuttal comes in the following video, the latest in my ¡Ask a Mexican! series of rants.

The again happy couple
Producers of The Real Housewives of Orange County are checking out Vanessa Bryant, Kobe's off-and-on-again wife, as a new cast member, an "insider" apparently claims.

"There will be a new girl and a new friend," an unnamed Mr. RHOC told RumorFix. "They are looking at athletes' wives. There is one who plays professional baseball. There have also been talks of Kobe Bryant's wife being scoped out."

Keep in mind that unnamed insiders have a validity rate that ranks down there with Mark Madsen's career 3-point field goal percentage.

Over The Top aint got nothing on these guys.


In 2006, Robert Drenk and Bill Collins, (an arm wrestler and arm wrestling referee, respectively) started the Ultimate Armwrestling League to allow arm wrestlers to compete on a more professional level. What they began would eventually evolve into a world-renowned arm wrestling competition that draws hundreds of arm wrestlers of all ages (and sizes) to compete for a grand prize of $100,000.

The latest UAL competition took place at Ten Nightclub in Newport Beach, and we sent our Junior Asian Correspondent Charles Lam to investigate. We came across avid and dedicated arm wrestlers from around the world and asked them about their interests in competing, and even had Charles put his own arm muscles to the test.

Mammoth Mountain to Acquire Snow Summit and Bear Mountain Ski Resorts for $38 Million

UPDATE: Mammoth is picking up the two Big Bear area resorts for $38 million, reports the Los Angeles Times, which notes the move "comes in the midst of a historic drought." Mammoth CEO Rusty Gregory explains to the Times, "My father used to say in business you want to do the opposite of what everyone else is doing.

Ex-NFL Linebacker Convicted In California Millionaire's Murder Loses Appeal

Naposki: NFL player turned Newport Beach bar doorman turned convicted murderer
A California Court of Appeal this week rejected a four-prong effort by Eric Naposki, a former NFL linebacker with the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts, to overturn his July 2011 conviction for the 1994, ambush murder of an ultra-wealthy Newport Beach businessman in a financial gain plot.

An appellate lawyer working for Naposki told a three-justice appellate panel based in Santa Ana that there were four errors in the trial, including the government's 15-year delay in filing charges, faulty jury instructions, biased jury and improperly excluded evidence.

But Justice WIlliam Rylaarsdam's 18-page opinion backed by colleagues Raymond Ikola and David Thompson analyzed and then rejected each point, saying they found "no prejudicial error."
