Bo Bice loses mind, punches ex-NY Giant lineman

Bo BiceOK, I'm risking a comment assault on my inbox by posting this, but what the hell, I feel like taking some (calculated) risks today:

According to everyone's favorite column, Page Six in the New York Post, Bo Bice got into a drunken scrape with a fan the other night at a midtown Manhattan pub. But this wasn't just any fan, it was Glenn Parker, who at one time was an NFL offensive lineman (he played on my favorite team, the New York Giants, the last time they went to the Super Bowl).

The article states that Parker approached the Idol reject, asking him if he was indeed Bo Bice. Bice denied it; when Parker came back to Bo to apologize for bothering him, Bo started flailing his arms, grazing Parker under the chin with one swing. Instead of crushing him like a bug, Parker called for a bartender, who helped him throw the long-haired crooner out of the bar.

Parker needs to be commended for his restraint; at 6'5" and 300 pounds, he could have really gone to town on Bice. As for Bo... well... he should be grateful his face is still intact. The next time he grows beer muscles, he may not be so lucky.

It's interesting to me that none of the TV entertainment "news" shows thought this was newsworthy enough to cover it. I guess when no one gets hurt or arrested, it's no big deal. Hey, come to think of it...that's right!

"Heard an interview with Parker yesterday and do believe his side of the story. He did state more is being made of the situation than it deserves"

I say that if Mr. Parker says too much is being made of the situation then people should let it go. After all he was there!

Joel Keller, are you in the habit of accepting the crap you read on page six as gospel, much less passing it along? Your eagerness to believe it and add you own biased spin is embarrassing.

May 1's People Magazine tells a completely different story of this incident. Maybe you shoulda waited a day before sticking your foot up your butt.

Bo Bice thinks he is really something, Remember people he didn't win he was a runner up, he came in second, second is nothing not a winner but a LOSER. He is nothing but a drug addict and drunk and should have never been allowed to stay on Idol they have thrown people off for less than that.

Oh please. Although Bo Bice has a wonderful voice, a saint, he ain't. He is rough and trashy. Why would anyone think he is beyond this? I find it very easy to believe. Get real, people. Bo is white trash.
