Preacher’s Row: Miami Heat Players Scammed? Dodger’s Indecent Proposal

Wilson laughs off $1M
Heat’s Miller scammed?!

Miami, FL – Remember that ole scam about buying waterfront property in Florida?  Well, Miami Heat guard Mike Miller and several other Heat players were allegedly victims of a real estate scam run by Haidar Zafar – a self-professed real estate investor.

Haidar’s now in the clink awaiting trial for allegedly swindling millions of dollars from investors on bogus real estate purchases in Pakistan and Florida.  Rumor has it that Haidar’s next con was to sell luxury condos in Afghanistan and Mali.  Apparently Haidar was also set to meet with NY Met’s owner Fred

And if that wasn’t titillating enough for you, LA Dodger’s Relief Pitcher Brian Wilson just turned down $1 Million to shave his mangy yet mesmerizing beard.

Brian just made it back to the “Bigs” after having his 2nd Tommy John surgery and to help him ‘get cleaned up’ a razor blade company generously offered him a big bag o’ cash.

Here’s what Brian had to say:

“I don’t care how much money’s on the table, nobody’s cutting me!”

Well said Brian.  Maybe he’s taken the Nazarite vow or perhaps just wants to hold out for a little more dough.

What would you do for $1 Million?

A couple other members of Brian Wilson’s beard cult are also featured in this article.

And as a change of pace, and to liven up this week’s ‘Row up a bit, I found some interesting pics that I hope will stir up your morning coffee and perhaps elicit a slight giggle or smirk!  (Actually I read an article with some pics of some happy animals that were rescued from slaughterhouses based here in NYC.)
