The only reason I’m even talking about this new line of jewelry is because in honor of the launch of Tweety Fine Jewelry, Tweety! is auctioning off a one of a kind custom VW hardtop bug for charity. The auction starts at $25,000 and you can check it out here. The pictures of it are truly unbelievable, especially the inside of the bug. I’ve gone ahead and posted pictures of the car below for you to see. Any idea who wants or will be bidding on this beautiful piece of machinery?
Hopefully this will lead to the revocation of Bush's Heisman. For one thing, everyone knows Vince Young really deserved the Heisman Trophy that year and proved it by beating Bush and USC to win the BCS National Championship. I won't dwell on the arguments too much, but how does a player who is not even the best running back on his own team and shares the field with a previous Heisman Trophy winner even close to the best player in college football. Of course it's easy to put up amazing stats with Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart and LenDale White by your side. It's a little harder to put up similarly great stats, while continuing to win, when you have to carry all of that pressure on just your shoulders...like the great Vince Young was able to do that season.
Obviously Vince probably doesn't want a hand-me-down trophy, but regardless I'd love to see the trophy stripped from Bush's cheating hands and the trophy vacated. We'll see if the NCAA investigation actually leads anywhere though. I've seen the NCAA pick and choose who they want to go after, and which infractions they want to ignore, too many times. Hopefully the Heisman Trophy Trust will be a little more pro-active than the NCAA and take a stand against cheating...I guess only time will tell.
The movie's coming out May 2008 and thank god Big is in it...I for one was really worried that Chris Noth's return to Law & Order: Criminal Intent as Detective Mike Logan would keep him off the big screen.
