As Charlie Sheen was preparing for his role in the worst-to-first baseball film, “Major League,” he was taking performance enhancing drugs. Of course, drug use is barely news with Sheen but he made the admission of him using steroids in this week’s Sports Illustrated.
“Let’s just say that I was enhancing my performance a little bit. It was the only time I ever did steroids. I did them for like six or eight weeks. You can print this, I don’t give a f*ck. My fastball went from 79 [miles-per-hour] to like 85.”
In the film, Sheen plays Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn, a flamethrower with an edge; before joining the Cleveland Indians, he played for the California Penal League.
Sheen has continued his love of baseball through the years; during his recent comedy tour, he wore gear from the home team in each city he visited and is friends with a number of players including admitted steroid user, Lenny Dykstra.
Back on March 18, we posted the report that actor Damon Wayans landing the lead role in Colin Cowherd’s inspired CBS sitcom and was waiting for the thumbs up to get picked up past the pilot stage. We unfortunately now report that the ESPN radio host sitcom has now been passed over according to Colin via Twitter, which means we won’t see Wayans or Elisha Dushku channeling Michelle Beadle in some form.
“Network passed on my sitcom. On to plan B. In talks with Charlie Sheen for new show “Almost Winning.” Taste that CBS”
He later went on to tweet the Internet would never see it for it won’t see the light of day.
Charlie Sheen has paid $22,500 to bail former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Lenny “Nails” Dykstra out of jail. Dykstra, who was charged earlier this month with bankruptcy fraud, was held on $150,000 bail for nearly a week until Sheen put forward 15 percent of the payment. Sheen, a huge baseball fan said,
“The rendition guilty trolls that kidnapped my dear friend Nails clearly forgot that he’s a fellow Vatican assassin and his best pal is a warlock.”
Dykstra has previously come to Sheen’s aid, hiring a top lawyer to negotiate the troubled actor’s return to Two and a Half Men after he was fired from the sitcom in March.
Prosecutors claim that Dykstra sold $400,000 worth of items from his $18 million mansion in southern California without permission and faces up to five years in a federal prison if convicted. As well as fraud charges the former three-time All-Star was being investigated by the LAPD for lewd conduct after a woman claimed he stripped off and requested a massage when he interviewed her for a housekeeper role.
Normally we don’t do Charlie Sheen posts unless it has a direct connection to the sports world and over the weekend on his current “My Violent Torpedo of Truth” tour and had a special guest join him in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The “Worm” aka Dennis Rodman took the stage with him where some of the discussion focused on life and death. Perhaps over about near cocaine overdoses?
New York Jets backup quarterback Erik Ainge recently opened up about a drug problem that he has apparently had since he was 11. In an exclusive interview Ainge sat down for a taped interview and wrote his admission on ESPN web site, which I recommend you read in which he said he needed to get help before his addiction killed him. Ainge said that he was addicted to the hardest of drugs heroin, cocaine and alcohol and that at the height of his problems he “would’ve made Charlie Sheen look like Miss Daisy.”
Ainge who was suspended four games for violating the league’s drug policy in 2008 and missed all of last season because he was in rehab. One is got to ask with the NFL Draft just right around the corner how did the New York Jets front office and scouts miss this kind of background?
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was on the Jimmy Kimmel Show to promote his upcoming ABC TV show Shark Tank and his potential of buying the New York Mets when he was interrupted by Hollywood actor Charlie Sheen, whom he has been in talks about for possible future business ventures. Sheen then left Kimmel with a big surprise.
Charlie Sheen is going to be in the midwest area in the early part of April and Cleveland Indians fans want the franchise to seize a golden opportunity of having the Hollywood actor to throw out the first pitch on the brand new season. One of Sheen’s most famous characters in his acting career was when he portrayed Rick “The Wild Thing” Vaughn in the comedy Major League. The Tribe even used the likeness in a Bobblehead promotion a few years back.
The Facebook Group “Cleveland Indians need Sheen to Pitch!” has reached 1,000 members. Their tagline of their group page reads: Lets get the “Wild Thing”, Rick Vaughn to throw out the first pitch at the Cleveland Indians’ 2011 home opener on April 1st against Chicago! Get Charlie Sheen back in Cleveland!
Charlie Sheen could soon have a home on Dallas Mavericks Mark Cuban’s HDNet station.Cameras already are rolling, although plenty of details still need to be worked out such as what kind of show it might be. Cuban said Sunday a decision of whether to make it a reality show, a talk show or something else will be up to Sheen.
Sheen has become a media phenomenon lately with off-beat rantings filled with lines that have become catchphrases, such as “tiger blood” and a drug called Charlie Sheen. It’s all part of a campaign to disprove that he is a drug-using, reckless playboy.
The future of his hit CBS show “Two and a Half Men” is uncertain.
Troubled actor Charlie Sheen yesterday decided to leand the University of California at Los Angeles Bruins baseball team some helpfull advice. The Hollywood star, who has spent plenty of time in rehab, got a standing ovation after telling the team to:
“Stay off the crack, drink chocolate milk and enjoy every moment, that’s all I’ve got.”
Sheen, who was rushed to hospital after last month’s epic cocaine binge, is a longtime friend pal of Bruins coach John Savage. The Bruins open up the season next Friday at home against the University of San Francisco at Jackie Robinson Stadium.
We all have sat around and fantasied about being Charlie Sheen at times especially after just seeing a Michael Jordan-Sheen Hanes commercial. Who hasn’t had that fantasy about being an alcoholic, multi-marriages to crazy chicks, cocaine over dosing actor that still gets paid like your making 1980 classic’s like “Red Dawn” or “Wall Street” and for fun of it throw in an occasional meeting with Jordan on set or on the golf course. Tell me you haven’t?
In recent weeks we have seen Tiger Woods have his sponsors bail on him or scale back for the time being because of his multi sexual escapades but what is Hanes to do with the Jordan-Sheen commercials now that Sheen has been arrested and accused of wielding a knife on his wife’s throat after she allegedly asked for a divorce in their Denver home? He’s facing charges of second-degree assault and criminal mischief.
Is Hanes going to continue to let Jordan-Sheen commercials air between my college bowl games? Exactly what is Hanes stance on this situation? Its time for the people at Hanes to put down the eggnog and at least address the fact that a spokesman for their product has been arrested for domestic violence.
It seems to me that Jordan might be the root Woods and Sheen’s problems, I kid. No seriously is he? How does one get initiated to Jordan circle? Cause I want in.
