Crazy Rumor: Dolphins Scouting Usain Bolt?
Media Take Out is one of the craziest rumor mongers on the web. Sample headlines: "UH UHHHHH!!! CHECK OUT MORGAN FREEMAN'S BUST IT BABY ... THAT'S WHO HE LEFT HIS WIFE FOR??????" and "WORD ON THE STREET!! Fantasia And Young Dro HAVE SPLIT UP!!!". Obviously MTO is not familiar with subtlety or holding back even the craziest tips, but it is one of the first sites reporting local rapper Rick Ross's past as a corrections officer.
Well, today they're claiming that Miami Dolphins coach Bill Parcels has a representative en route to Beijing to talk with Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt. Bolt is taking home the gold in the 100 meter and 200 meter sprints, and broke the World record in both events. The Dolphins are so desperate for some star power it might just be true.
