Avril Lavigne swears while throwing out first pitch at Rays game

S8ter Girl Avril Lavigne threw out the first pitch at the Tampa Bay Rays game and preformed at the Ray’s summer concert series for the Memorial Day weekend, but it isn’t her form that is drawing attention but that she shouted obscenities for all of Tropicana Field to hear. The incident occured as the crowd grew restless when Lavigne’s microphone stopped working during her opening song. When the crowd began to boo her, Lavigne shouted out obscenities just as her mic kicked back in broadcasting her feelings to all 25,000 fans.

The Rays released a statmenet saying: “The Rays demand profanity-free performances from all of our concert performers and we are extremely disappointed by the language used in last night’s show. It is not consistent with the family-friendly atmosphere that Tropicana Field is known for.”

It is not known if the Rays will beef up secruity when the Wiggles come to Tropicana Park next month.

Home robbed of Evan Longoria and teammates

A home rented by Evan Longoria and three other Tampa Bay Rays teammates for spring training was robbed this weekend. Longoria, David Price and Reid Brignac had over $50,000 of personal items stolen from their rented home while the team played a game at Charlotte Sports Park.

 ”They took pretty much everything that was ours inside the house,” Longoria said. Among the stolen items include: Xboxs, iPads, watches, laptops and Longoria’s AK-47.

The fact that Longoria had a gun in the home of his spring training camp residence has raised some eyebrows amoung Rays fans, but according to the sherrif investigating the case, the gun is perfectly legal.

Though Longoria declined to go into detail he did say, “It’s a personal item. Obviously they’re going to say things that are taken. I think everything within the house is personal and we’ll just leave it at that.”

Longoria was a victim of theft earlier in spring training when his 1967 Camaro was stolen from an autobody shop in Arizona. Police do not think the crimes are related. And I thought stealing was encouraged in baseball?!?
