Unless LeBron James rejoins the Cleveland Cavaliers one day, many Ohioans never will forgive their native son for taking his talents to South Beach.
The animosity toward James was evident in Ohio's recently released list of more than 500 rejected vanity license plates. Either that or some people still are irate at former President Lyndon Baines Johnson.
The list of rejected plates includes EFFLBJ, IH8LBJ and LBJSUX. The state also denied IH8NCAA and IH8FLA. Some rejected plates - DUDU, INEED2P, NICERAK and FARTMAN - seem harmless.
A couple of "Seinfeld" references - PUDDY and A5SMAN - also were denied.
In one episode, Kramer mistakenly receives an ASSMAN vanity plate that he thinks belongs to a proctologist. He tells Jerry and George that if they ever meet a proctologist at a party, "Don't walk away."
"Plant yourself there, because you will hear the funniest stories you've ever heard," he says. "See, no one wants to admit to them that they stuck something up there. Never! It's always an accident.
"Every proctologist story ends in the same way: 'It was a million to one shot, Doc. Million to one.' "
The plate could have belonged to comedian Rodney Dangerfield, who was asked if he was a leg man, a breast man or an ass man.
"I figure I must be an ass man," he said. "People yell at me all the time, 'You're an ass, man!' "
■ MONEY MANZIEL - In advance of Wednesday's national signing day, former Mississippi State wideout Chad Bumphis took a shot at rival Ole Miss for photos posted by Rebels five-star recruit Laquon Treadwell on Twitter showing him getting kissed by two girls and his hand atop a stack of $100 bills with the caption, "Oxford (Miss.) is the best place I've ever been!"
"With NSD near, recruits listen. DON'T go with the money!" Bumphis wrote. "After its gone ur stuck at a place you probably don't even like for 3-5 years!"
In defense of Treadwell, who claims he was joking, Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel also showed poor judgment in a photo he posted in January after a trip to WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Okla.
"Johnny Football" looked more like "Money" Manziel while gleefully fanning himself with a wad of bills in a photo with the caption "Casino Ballin."
Manziel, 20, then tweeted, "Nothing illegal about being 18+ in a casino and winning money KEEP HATING!"
Sounds like Manziel would be a perfect fit for UNLV. He turns 21 in December, when he legally could gamble here, and has three years of eligibility remaining. "Johnny Vegas" does have a nice ring to it.
■ INSPIRED TO SCORE - Few motivational techniques can top the one the Association of Nigerian Prostitutes is offering.
You're not down with ANP? Yeah, neither are we. But after Nigeria upset Ivory Coast in the Africa Cup of Nations, the ANP promised a week of free sex if the Nigerians win the tournament.
It's unclear if the offer extends to the entire country, or just to the soccer team, but in either case, the Association of Baltimore Prostitutes had no comment.
