From our friends at TMZ comes the kind of hard-hitting journalistic effort that will help set the agenda as Super Bowl week unfolds.
Or that simply will help stir things up a little.
Jeremy Piven, one of the stars of HBO’s Entourage, recently was captured on film complaining about this year’s participants in the NFL title game.
“Jets and Bears would have been the greatest Super Bowl,” Piven said. “Now its Rapistberger and the Cheeseheads. The Cheesy Rape Burger.”
Piven then noticed that someone had videotaped his words. “Noooooo,” he said.
Obviously, Piven was referring to the multiple sexual assault allegations previously made against Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. He never has been arrested or charged with rape. A civil suit alleging rape has been filed against Roethlisberger, but the suit remains unresolved.
