Found July 12, 2013 on The Sports Bank:
The next name becoming household in the Aaron Hernandez saga is Carlos Ortiz. He seems to be the second most “person of interest” in this case right after Aaron Hernandez. Oh, he has quite the narcotics record too. According to court documents released Tuesday, Carlos Ortiz told police that Ernest Wallace, a second alleged accomplice, Ortiz is the first, told him the day after the shooting that Aaron Hernandez admitted to killing Odin Lloyd. We have a body, we just don’t have a murder weapon in the Odin Lloyd case.   Court records show that Carlos Ortiz’s criminal record includes convictions for larceny, assault, criminal mischief and interfering with an officer, according to a USA Today report. So remember that if he takes the stand for the prosecution. His credibility is not all that high, but he is Aaron Hernandez accomplice #1. And to make a joke about Ortiz, he is also a Miami Heat fan, so we should hold that against him. By the way, you’ve heard the term “prison art” descri...

The Pouncey Brothers Wear “Free Hernandez” Hats to the Club (Photo)

The Pouncey Brothers are University of Florida alums, so that is the connection between them and Aaron Hernandez. Technically, it is innocent until proven guilty and every defendant has a presumption of innocence, so there shouldn’t be anything wrong with wearing these hats. .@Deadspin Pouncey Bros rocking Free Hernandez hats in the club — Jasmine ...

Fans turned in Aaron Hernandez gear, I return all Patriots regalia

As you heard, the New England Patriots took a $275,000 financial loss from Patriots fans turning in their Aaron Hernandez jerseys and t-shirts.

Aaron Hernandez is the most extreme case, but there’s been plenty of crime, and very...

Browns RB Dion Lewis: ‘Aaron Hernandez homie snitched on him lol’

Cleveland Browns running back Dion Lewis learned on Wednesday that it is probably best to simply ignore the Aaron Hernandez murder investigation on public forums like Twitter.

Mark Sanchez Mistakes the Jets QB Competition for a Naked Booty Dancing One

The New York Jets have been the biggest beneficiary of the whole New England Patriots/Aaron Hernandez fiasco. Were it not for the blog-o-sphere would have found even more to make fun of about the Jets than it has in the last month. But with the Hernandez story not having something breaking every five minuted anymore we can return to our normal Jets-bashing routine. Why? Because...

Bynum Picks Cavs

And I’m using “picks” loosely, because by all accounts there was no one else bidding. The ******* crazy center signed a two year deal with Cleveland for only $6 million guaranteed (though it could be worth up to $24 million). If they can reel in his Bynum-ness, it’s a great move by the Cavs. But that’s a big if. He’s got a little too much Aaron Hernandez in him for my...

New England Patriots Way: the way to INCARCERATION

Sports is filled with air-kissed platitudes that mimic one another “The Butler Way,” “The Oriole Way,” “The Patriots Way.”  So much for “The Patriot Way.” a better theme/mantra for the New England Patriots would be “ain’t nuthin but a gangsta party” or “Thug Life.” Granted, they’re still not as bad as current Ohio State Buckeyes Coach UrbanMeyer during...
