This week, we travel down the path of a sad, twisty story of a man who started with such promise.  He came from a very abusive family, putting his toughness on display with a championship boxing career.  The problem is, he also couldn't stop getting arrested.

This week, we explore the life of a man who went from the tobacco fields of Cuba, to Yankee Stadium, and nearly pitching a no hitter. But after a lengthy, yet mediocre baseball career, he embarked on several enterprises, such as making cigars, and being involved in the drug trade. Known for dressing up in elaborate cowboy outfits, and always carrying his trademark pistols, he was quite the character... Even in prison. This story spans from Mickey Mantle to the Miami cocaine trade of the 1980's!

This week, we look at a man who came to America, in search of a better life... and apparently to be a jerk. His NFL career was long, but so is his criminal record.  Even with his attempts to try to pass himself off as an innocent foreigner, it's pretty obvious that he k new what he was doing.  The fighting, the drinking, the GHB, more fighting, more drinking... more GHB, and throw in a little bribery, just for fun!   Come from an Eastern Bloc country to make a better life, get away with anything based solely on your talent to kick a ball, and make sure to never take responsibility for your actions with Sebastian Janikowski!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder#
This week, we bring you one of the most anticipated episodes.  One that you've all been asking for. He was considered extra crazy, in a time & business where crazy was the currency. In wrestling, his violence was unparalleled, including using staple guns, a Nintendo, or anything else that could be considered an implement of violence.  Sometimes, this included stabbing his opponent in a less than planned way. Justifiable homicides, drugs, and overall mayhem.  Not only does he admit to it all, but he's not even sorry!    Go from bounty hunting to wrestling, be the most violent, feared guy around, and tell the world that you "did it & got away with it", with Jerome "New Jack" Young!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder#
This week, we travel back in time for a super swingin', cocaine snortin', late 70's/early 80's good time! He overcame some odds with his immense talent, but hit a major stumbling block with drugs.  He partook in everything the New York lifestyle had to offer. He had all the women, partied at Studio 54 & Plato's Retreat, and snorted millions of dollars up his nose.  Did he ever come out the other side, or did the whole thing end in tragedy? Either way, he has some of the most hilarious quotes in history. This is a fun one!!   Achieve the dream of making a better life for your family, discover the glory of freebasing cocaine, and throw away a potential hall of fame career with Micheal "Sugar" Ray Richardson!!

This week, we take a look at a story that is unlike any we've ever told. A man pops out of nowhere, with a full bank account, and desire to build, and drive for the best racing team in Europe. He bought the hot cars, and lived the life... until it comes to light that he's not exactly who he says he is.  As a matter of fact, he's not at all who he says he is. So, where did the money come from, and exactly who is this guy??   Be a "Gentleman Racer", fly everyone you know on the Concorde, and be completely full of crap with James Munroe!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder#
This week, we settle in with one of the strangest stories we've ever looked at. A man who never had a chance in life, and quickly screws up any chance he does have, somehow makes himself a legend while serving 30 years in prison. He was a light heavyweight boxing contender, while being incarcerated for many things, including murder. Did he get out of prison, and fulfill his destiny? This story is a whole lot of crazy!!   Do eight years in jail for truancy, mess up your life, just when it starts to get on track, then become a legend from behind prison walls with James Scott!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder#
This week, we jump over the net to look at a Belgian tennis player who has maybe the craziest origin story we've ever told. He went from these humble beginnings to becoming an arrogant, snobby, jerk, who treated everyone, including his parents, like they were beneath him. This attitude developed into a nasty little heroin habit that destroyed his life & career, while landing him in jail, multiple times.  Does he ever stop his stupidity?

This week, we take a long look at a man who was no stranger to crime from an early age.  From theft, to selling crack to an undercover officer, to punching women & chasing a man through the streets, holding a large stick... and that's all before he was even of legal age.  With NFL success didn't come the end of his arrests, as he kept up a pretty solid record, throughout the years.  This includes one of the sillier arrests in CIS history! It's Corey Dillon!!   Sell crack to an undercover officer, chase people through the streets with a large stick, and always punch the driver of the car you're in with Corey Dillon!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder#
This week, we check in with a man who we have done two episodes on, but now we check in with the man himself, Lenny Dykstra!! We sit have a chat with Lenny about what he's been up to, since his last arrest, what he thinks about baseball in the age of Covid-19, and exactly what the hell he was thinking when he kept getting arrested!  Lenny is honest, frank, and just an all around good time.  Throughout the episode are voicemails to wish Lenny well, left by some ex-teammates, media personalities, and people you just wouldn't expect!! This is an all around good time!!   Get arrested a whole bunch of times, get yourself not one, but two Crime In Sports episodes about you, then sit down, talk with us & have a good time with Lenny Dykstra!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder#
This week, we check out a man who played a sport we know nothing about, rugby.  That said, we skip most of the sports, and dive directly into crime.  He tried to make a little extra money, doing some dirty things, and got caught.  In Thailand.  With a LOT of heroin. This leads to a long stint in a nightmarish Thai prison, which causes him even bigger troubles. Listen to it all unravel!   Play two professional sports, hang out with your crime boss brother-in-law, and wind up doing extra hard time in a Thai prison with Paul Hayward!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we look at a very successful person, who never seemed like they'd turn out to be so successful.  He was a six time NBA champion, who played next to the great of all time.  He also spent money in dumb ways, drove a little tipsy, was a little careless with guns, and the police know the address where he and his reality show star wife lived.  Not to mention, more lawsuits than you could shake a stick at, including one that names a 5 year old girl as a target.  What a mess!   Grow tall after most people are done growing, win everything you could possibly win, and still be thought of as mainly a sidekick with Scottie Pippen!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we go back in time to look at man who had it rough.  He had over 100 boxing matches, back before we even knew what CTE was, the 1920's/1930's.  This all resulted in bizarre behavior, culminating with a jealous outburst at both his mistress... and her mother.  He admits to the crime, but will his diminished capacities keep him from hanging in London's gallows? This is a wild & crazy ride through history!!   Go to the bathroom in a freezing hole in the ground, fight so much that you barely know where you are, and shoot to kill with Del Fontaine!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we look into a man who makes it REALLY hard to like him.  His first, second, and third responses are all the same, violence. He attacks people in public, in bars, and worst of all, in their own homes.  All the signs were there, but the world wasn't sure just how awful of a human being he is, until he commits an act so heinous, that he may never get out of prison!   Screw up every opportunity that you get, make sure to say all of your craziest thoughts in public, and never, ever show any mercy with War Machine!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we jump into the deep end of a murky pool.  A man who was raised to be a champion, from the time he was in diapers.  He was on a clear path to a gold medal when tragedy struck, and he was severely injured in a car accident.  His remarkable comeback, all the way to the Olympics was nothing short of amazing, but he quickly threw it all away.  In the end, people are killed, and so is a legend!   Work your way back from horrific injuries, throw it all away with booze & pills, then live with the tragic results with Bruce "The Comeback Kid" Kimball!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we take a look at a guy whoo seems to have been getting arrested since birth.  From high school, and beyond, he developed a pattern of having no regard for rules, the law, or other human beings, then having people get him out of trouble.  He continues this pattern, until he meets his future wife, soccer star, Hope Solo. She seems to fit right into his lifestyle, as they end up entangled with police, as a couple, on more than one occasion, in addition to having her own problems with the law!  This is a 2 for 1 episode & it's wall to wall crime & mess!!   Send people nasty emails after they have sex with you, never listen to authority, and go right from jail to your wedding with Jerramy Stevens & Hope Solo!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we bodyslam our way through the story of a man who defines the term "wasted potential". No one in wrestling history has been given more chances to be employed, or screwed those chances up quite so badly.  He did plenty of drugs, fought cops in bar parking lots, and that's only the beginning. Tales of his debauchery are legendary. Some are hilarious, and some are downright criminal. He is a unique kind of disaster!   Have sex with your cousin, snort your way out of every job you get, and never learn from your mistakes with Marty Jannetty!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we check out a nearly forgotten baseball player, who was once the catalyst behind a team that went to the World Series, but just a few short years later, he was out of the sport, all together.  Why?  Cocaine, and plenty of it. Also, he had quite the attitude, causing fights with everyone from friends, to teammates, to his team's manager. His post-baseball life was sad one, complete with a penthouse apartment, specifically for shooting heroin.  This is a wild tale!   Live your childhood sports dream, choke your team's manager, and do every drug you can get you hands on, in any way you can with Alan Wiggins!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we talk about a man who somehow went from dropping out of high school, to the NBA in a matter of a few years.  He sold crack, and ran the streets but always kept his basketball dreams alive, and eventually it paid off, at least in money.  But he has been full of problems like being belligerent to cops, drinking to excess, getting robbed, committing a burglary, and a whole lot in between.  He leaves you with only one question... WHY??   Drop out of high school, be intimidated by Charles Barkley, and always do the stupidest thing with Steve "The Franchise" Francis!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder

july 2020. covid 19 has killed 120,000 + Americans I'm referring to episode 94 Greetings fellow assholes, not sc*mb*gs. if you've listened to enough episodes, you'll get that meaning. Yeah indeed Jimmy yeah indeed. I've read a lot of comments, and I totally agree the episodes run too long. I skip through the first 6 minutes or so, and just randomly listen to next 30 or 40 minutes. about 5 minutes or so, you don't miss much of the storyline. my rough estimate is like spend two hours listening to their podcast that take 2 hours and 25 minutes. while they both are funny, James does admittedly, the heavy lifting with all his research. His comprehension level of life is well above Jimmy. he'll get facts from stuff that James reads, and absolutely the wrong conclusion from those facts. Eventually Jimmy admit his mistake, laughs like a hyena. Just like explosive nitroglycerin, these two combined together cause explosive laughter. Their combined knowledge of who was playing music in a certain era, who played on basketball or professional football teams is quite extensive. Still got to like when they get a sponsor, and cut into their own programming and they do the copy for the commercial. After doing so much wacky stuff, they try to be serious for the sponsor. Low calories, carbohydrates, and salt, it is strongly recommended for your humor diet. Feel free to give me a thumbs up for this review. Thanks! 👍👍
