Wage increase takes its toll
By MIKE GIMIGNANI
Alligator Staff Writer
A former associate dean of UF's College of Medicine pleaded not
guilty to federal wire-fraud charges Friday after allegedly diverting
more than $120,000 from college programs for his own benefit.
At issue for Timothy VanSusteren, who as associate dean for con-
tinuing medical education oversaw credit
UF courses for healthcare professionals, are 11
Administration checks meant for UF that he reportedly de-
posited into his personal checking account.
One e-mail requested that a $25,000 payment from Distance
Learning Networks of State College, Pa., should be made out to both
VanSusteren and UF, which led to the criminal charge, records indi-
VanSusteren was released Friday after posting $25,000 bond. His
trial was set to begin July 11.
In addition, the university's investigation also found that
VanSusteren received at least $8,000 in fees for outside activities that
he did not disclose to his supervisors, a violation of university policy.
Ted Curtis, VanSusteren's attorney, would not comment on the case
except to repeat the date of the trial.
"Dr. VanSusteren is cooperating with the authorities in the investi-
gation," Curtis said.

Minimum-wage workers in
Florida are finding some finan-
cial relief after the rate change,
which increased by $1, went
into effect May 2.
The controversial consti-
tutional amendment passed
on the November ballot -with
more than 70-percent support,
leaving the statewide mini-
mum wage at $6.15 per hour, a
dollar more than the minimum
federal payroll standards.
The amendment also calls
for annual wage increases to
keep pace with inflation.
But with almost a month
after the payroll increases were
implemented statewide, some
local businesses are beginning
to feel the pinch, and as a re-
sult, downsizing services or
reducing payroll hours.

Two attempt UF robbery
By IVETTE MENDEZ
Two men tried to rob a 26-year-old
Gainesville resident Tuesday morning on
Museum Road near UF's Bat House, ac-
cording to University Police.
Robert Williams was walking toward
Southwest 34th Street when two unidenti-
fied men approached him, UPD spokesman
Joe Sharkey said.
"He was walking from a friend's home
on one side of campus to his home on the
other side of campus," Sharkey said.
The suspects allegedly stopped Williams
and demanded money.
Williams gave the two men his wallet and
showed them his backpack, telling them he
had no money, according to a release.
The victim reportedly was instructed by
the suspects to walk toward the Lakeside
Residence Hall when a UPD vehicle drove
When the police car returned, the three
men had left the area and Williams' back-
pack was found in the road, according to
the release. '
"There was a form of ID that we had
used to trace him down; it had his address
on it," Sharkey said.
UPD officers went to Williams' home
two hours later, where he told them about
the robbery, Sharkey said.
Williams described the two suspects as
two black males between the ages of 18 and
20, the release states.
"No weapons were brandished,"
The UPD officer reportedly saw a blue
Oldsmobile Cutlass with loud tailpipes in
the area at the time of the robbery, which
the officer suspected as belonging to the
Police are looking for the two men on
charges of attempted robbery.
UPD officials do not know if the suspects
are still in Gainesville, Sharkey said.

DEPRESSION FROM MEDICATION.

Patients suffering from heart disease
may be likely to develop medication-re-
lated depression, a UF study found.
"A drug may be effective in treating
hypertension but may have an adverse
impact on (a patient's) mood and bring
forth symptoms of depression," said
Doug Ried, a research health scientist
at the Randall Veterans Affairs Medical
Ried conducted a study to evaluate
the increase of depressive symptoms in
patients who used atenolol, a drug pre-
viously believed to be unsuitable in the
treatment of hyperent of hypertension, as compared
with verapamil, the generally accepted
brand of medication.
After a year, patients on atenolol
described more depressive symptoms
compared with those on verapamil,
."The factor that made the study in-
triguing was that depressive symptoms.
did not worsen by those on atenolol,"
Ried said. "Symptoms remained the
same, showing that patients without a
history of depression could use this type
of drug to treat hypertension."
In a press release, UF cardiologist
David Sheps said as many as a third of
heart-disease patients are depressed.
Physicians need to

Research relationship between
heart disease and de-
pression, Sheps said.
"Chest pain that doesn't seem to
respond to treatment may be related to
the fact that (patients) may have depres-
sion. Not all pain that patients complain
of is directly related to a treatable aspect
of heart disease; it may be related to a
behavior situation that affects the per-
ception of pain in general," Sheps said
in a press release.
But doctors now suspect the drugs
used may worsen depression or even
trigger a mood disorder in some pa-
Sheps said the link between heart
disease and depression is very common,
and both primary healthcare physicians
and cardiologists should be proactively
screening their patients.

peaked yet," said Phylis Brinkman
Craig, ,a nurse practitioner at the
women's clinic at UP "We just saw
two students who had never heard
of it before, and one of them walked
out with a prescription for it. A lot of
students haven't heard about it yet.
And it's not just students; a lot of

Craig said that NuvaRing is one
of the top types of contraceptive de-
vices prescribed to UF students.
"I recommend it to students be-
cause they only have to think about
it once a month, versus every day
with the pill or every week with the
patch," Craig .-sid.
Despite the fact that many wom-
en are still not familiar with the de-
vice, Christine Gajda, director of ex-
ternal affairs at Planned Parenthood
of North Central Florida, said that it
is gaining popularity.
"It is definitely popular, among

you have to remember to take it out
because it is not something that you
are going to see or feel," Gajda said.
"You also have to be comfortable,
touching your own body, and wom-
en just aren't. The Ring would not be

Still, the advantages of this de-
vice outweigh the disadvantages.
"This is going to be one of the
most popular contraceptive de-
vices," Craig said.

Jetting more ink
i Larger tattoos gaining favor
By CAITLIN HARRIS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Kelly Ripa did it. Halle Berry
did it, too. Angelina Jolie's done it
It might be symbolic, or it might
be a result of a little too inuch te-
quila. Whatever the reason, more
women than ever are choosing to
decorate their bodies with tattoos,
local tattoo artists said.
"Ten, 15 years ago, the only
time you really saw women in a
tattoo shop was when they were
on the back of some guy's bike,"
said Zak Huff, artist and owner of
Inkspots Tattoo, 1109 W University
Ave. "Now, most of my clientele
The main reason tattoos have
become popular is because they are
so commercialized now, Huff said.
People see tattoos on their favorite
movies, television shows, actors
and actresses, and theyvant to be a
part of this huge phenomenon.
Tattoos represent more than just
ink on a body. Women are more
specific when they pick out their .
tattoos, Huff said. The colors and
designs are taken into careful con-
sideration because these women
tend to think of their tattoo as an
accessory to their outfits and every,.
"The biggest trend with women
and tattoos right now is women are
getting larger, more involved tat-
toos with more colors," Huff said.
"Years ago, they'd just get a little
butterfly or Japanese characters
- small stuff."
The most popular place to get a
tattoo right now is along the lower
back, he said. It's a painful area to
tattoo but can fit a large panel -
one long, consecutive piece of art.
Biffy Eidenberger, an SFCC
sophomore, exemplifies the evolu-
tion of women and tattoos.
"The first tattoo I got was a but-
terfly on my hip," Eidenberger said.
"A couple months later, I decided I
wanted something bigger so I got a
cross with tribal lettering across my
"I never really saw myself
as a tattoo person. But
once I got my first one, I
had to get more 'cause
Eidenbergei's tattoos hold spe-
cial meaning in her life. Her but-
terfly tattoo is a friendship tattoo
she got with two of her best friends,;-
while-her cross represents her faith,
"I never really saw myself as a
tattoo person," she said. "But once
I got my first one, I had to get more
'cause they're addicting."
Eidenberger plans to get more
tattoos in the future when she saves
up the money. The kinds of tattoos
she'd like to get are bigger with
nmore olorini..o they will cost a lot
more than her tirst two, she said.
"My first tattoo, the butterfly,
* only cost $40," she said. "My cross
and tribal cost around $120 'cause
it took so long, and it takes up my
Tony Roberts, a tattoo artist at
Kaoz, 2107 NW 13th St., said $40 is
the average cost of a woman's first
tattoo. As they get more adventur-
ous with their tattoo choices, they
can spend a couple hundred dol-
lars on a single tattoo, he said.
It all depends on the size, the
detail, the colors and the place they
want it, Roberts said. The longer
it takes the tattoo artist, the more
expensive the tattoos get.
Though tattoos are an artistic
form of expression, there are often
stereotypes- associated with this
type of art, Huff said.
Shreya Shah,, a UF pre-phar-
macy sophomore, said stereotypes
of people with tattoos are the main
reason she hasn't gotten one. -
"I don't have a problem with tat-
toos, but it seems that the girls with
tattoos are viewed differently," she
said. "My best friend has a couple
flower and vine tattoos on her arms
and wrists, and she hasn'tbeen hired
for some jobs because the employer
thought they were offensive." *
Career Resource Center spokes-
woman Nadene Francis said the
most important thing is to under-
stand the organization to which
one applies for a job. In certain in-
dustries, bodyuart is not an issue.
"The same can be said for hair,
makeup and jewelry," she said. "You
just have to know what is appropri-
ate for that type of organization."
Eidenberger, whose cross and
tribal tattoo is sometimes visible be-
neath her clothing, is aware of ste-
reotypes surrounding people with
tattoos but isn't too concerned.
"H-like my tattoos and what they
represent," she said: "If my tattoos
bother somebody, they can look the
other way 'cause I'm not going to
let it bother me."
Goldberg maintains promise of diverse appointments
SENATE, from page 1

I think when it comes to [SG
chair] positions, only a few are
qualified. I wouldn't expect
there to be lots of applications
because most of these people
have been involved in the orga-
nization for a long time."
Tyroler said he and
Buchalter have been friends
since high school.
"I worked very closely with
Mr. Buchalter last year," Tyroler
said. "We worked very well
with each other."
Tyroler, who served as
Accent's vice chairman of
production under Buchalter,
conipeted against -the organi-
zation's treasurer, Jonathan
Hirsch, for his job.
Hirsch is also a member of
Alpha Epsilon Pi. Of the top 24
positions in Accent, nine hail
from that fraternity.

men see Greeks on campus and
want to get involved.

As Broward Beach seems like less of a misnomer with

Government is quietly passing what should be hotly contest-
ed legislation that shortchanges the majority of UF students
who have shed academic commitments for the summer.
Although Student Body President Joe Goldberg will sit in
his newly refurnished Reitz Union office through every sweaty
day, he and the Student Senate have been doing some shirking
of their own.
After naming a legacy-monger's dream team of replace-
ment Student Senators for summer, SG also tipped its hat to
the Florida Blue Key-controlled Gator Growl pep rally.
Two-and-a-half weeks in office and you've already broken
a campaign promise to end inherited SG positions and subsi-
dized your FBK buddies with $340,000 of our money, Joe?
We certainly can't accuse your actions of paralleling your

loyalties lie in two beds a conflict of interest. And if it's found
out that we're getting our bread buttered anywhere but in
our dimly lit little newsroom, we are fired and discredited for
the rest of our professional careers.
In political positions, such offenders merely move on to
the next nepotistic .official who once had enough money to
blow on friends and partying and the grades they didn't
make because of them in the same fraternity or sorority
house they did.
And speaking of money, while we have as-yet unpaid-for
parking garages on campus and a real'need for more, all SG
has done is form idle, ignorant committees about it. i\ Ihic i -

Tacked onto the Department of Defense policy and

Yes, women tend to be smaller and weaker than men
- but only on the average.
Yes, some soldier theoretically could have an aneu-
rism in the field because he couldn't decide whether to
shoot at the enemy or ask Becky Sue if he could carry her
grenade launcher for her until they got to base camp.
Yes, there would be an increased amount of sexual
and emotional tension among the ranks, which could
throw a wrench into morale if not kept in check.
There are plenty of plausible "reasons" why women
shouldn't be allowed into ground combat.
And each one of them is stupid.
The inability to treat female troops as equals is just
another sign of lack of discipline for screaming drill in-
structors to beat out of the heads of new troops.

point out that it only puts into- law a 1994 Pentagon
policy, rather than significantly increasing restrictions

Of course, supporters of the provision don't feel it
unfairly prevents women from-obtaining certain jobs.
Provision sponsor Rep. John McHugh, according
to the' Associated Press, responded to accusations that
doors are being closed to women by saying, "I really
take exception to that."
Well, that changes everything if the accusation of-

quite gotten comfortable with the idea that their grand-
daughters might prefer G.I. Joe to My Little Pony.
Throughout this debate, supporters of this and simi-

ready to handle the issue of women in combat.

UF engineer developing wireless vital-sign device
* THE MACHINE USES A
FORM OF DOPPLER RADAR.
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Contributing Writer
A UF engineer is working on a
wireless device that could read vital
signs, such as heart and breathing
rates, from a cell phone or laptop.
The device uses a miniaturized
Doppler radar, much like the radar
police use to gauge the speed of a
car, said Jenshan Lin, the device's
designer and an associate professor
in the Department of Electrical and
The radar sends a frequency to
the body that reads heartbeat and
movement of the chest produced
by breathing. That frequency is
then bounced back to the radar,
which sends the information to a
To read the information, Lin
created a computer program that
shows the information in the form
of waves, similar to an electrocar-'
diogram, or EKG.
Lin said hospitals could use
his device to track a patient's vital
signs without attaching sensors to
their bodies. Patients also could
use the device to send their doctors
their vital signs
UF -from the comfort
Research of their homes.
Lin said he
wants to reduce the device, roughly
shoebox-size, to a size small enough
to fit inside a cell phone or laptop.
In 2000, Lin began work on the
device at Bell Labs, the research
and development unit of Lucent
Technologies, with colleagues
from Stanford University and the
University of Hawaii.
After being hired by UF in 2003,
Lin continued to work on the de-
vice, increasing the frequency used
to transmit the signal.
With higher frequencies, the de-
vice could detect vital signs from a
greater distance, he said.
Currently, the device can read
vital signs with 100-percent ac-
curacy from a distance of half a
meter. However, Lin said.he hopes
to receive accurate signals from a
10-meter distance in the future.
Because the device reads vibra-
tions, Lin also said he is trying to
apply it to reading the vocal vibra-
tions of people who are unable to
speak. A computer program would
then replay those vibrations as the
person's voice, he said.
In the future, Lin said his device
could also work as a lie detector or
Seven as a security system, allowing
civilians to know how many people
are inside their homes or allowing
soldiers to know the number of
people behind a wall.

The Mermaid Chair
^.ill 11, Viking Adult
Sue Monk Kidd raises the number
one question that has been plaguing
men for centuries in "The Mermaid
Chair"- what do women really want?
The novel echoes Kate .Chopin's
"The Awakening," but if you hated
reading that book, don't worry.
This novel is far less depressing.
Kidd's book takes place on a
marshy island off the coast of South
Carolina. The main character, T-'-i,
returns to the island, her.- -,he grew
up, because her extremely religious
mother is mutilating herself for mys-
While simultaneously taking care
of her mother, she falls in love with a
monk, discovers the true cause of her
father's mysterious death, separates
and reconciles with her husband,
and paints pictures of mermaids.
Just a typical summer vacation.

is more like a com-
- not that there is anything wrong
SThe imagery of the novel is gor-
geous. Water "shines like taffeta,"
and air is "poached with incense."
There are also some interesting
questions raised through Jessie's
search for her own identity and for
solutions to her mother's issues.
Is religion a sanctuary or just
a hiding place? Can you be sen-
sual and spiritual at the same time?
When is it OK to betray someone
Still, I have my complaints.
Maybe it is because I loved the
originality and the spunk behind
"The Secret Life of Bees." The prob-
lems that the characters faced in that
novel did not immediately disinte-
grate at the end of -the novel. This
made that novel

Mermaid Chair" feels at times like a
Nicholas Spark's novel, and at times
like harlequin romance. It's all too
easy. Jessie slips from husband to
lover, and then back and these poor
men hardly complain. All because
she's feeling a little stifled.
That seems a little fishy to me.
But maybe that is what you will
like about the book.
So what if its not completely real-
istic? It has a happy ending, right?
Yes, it has a happy ending, if
up to jealousies
In the spectrum of acceptable sexual adventure,
the threesome especially for bored couples -
has become a common affair. Blame it on "School
House Rock," but in the world of sexual fantasies,
three is a magic number.
On paper, the concept seems pretty fun. Where
one is good, two must be better. And of course, the
threesomes in porn always end happily. The idea of
one plus one.plus one equals fun.
Then, I start thinking about myself.
I'm the jealous type. Imagining myself in a three-

I started polling my friends who had threesomes
for the details of sexual politics. All of my friends
agreed on two points. First, they all said as strictly
sex, threesomes are fun. Second, all said they would
do it again if the circumstances were right.
Unfortunately, finding the right circumstances
becomes much harder than finding two willing
From my data, I've gleaned a few things.
When it comes to, threesomes with couples in
standing relationships; the sex always becomes a
numbers game two plus one.
My one, a gay man, explained that he could only
lie still while the couple pounced then passed him
back and forth.
Even among three singles, the aspect of competi-
tion can persist.
A lesbian friend of mine became .involved in
a consistent threesome with a bisexual girl and a
stupidly lucky straight man last spring. While my
friend said the experience was one of the most enjoy-
able she's ever had, she said the three's subsequent
attempts quickly turned into what she called a bi-girl
The happiest experience among my friends con-
sisted of three gay men who were all single at the
time.Adding it all up, people are still people. When
people have sex, there is always the chance of jeal-
ousy and competition.
So in the math of threesomes, reducing the num-
ber of variables seems to be the best solution.

Local ska haunts CG
I e word "duppy" is taken from

unruly spirit raised from a con-
And that's exactly what The Duppies
will play on Friday at Common

calls to you to listen to them again.
"When most people think of ska,
they think of punk
rock kids with
Brian Hiebel says.
"We kind of take
a more serious ap-
proach to ska."
The band is made up of eight guys
brought together by a strong love for
Jamaican ska and the Internet.
I met with three members of the
eight-piece ska band Juan Cardenas,
who plays bass guitar, Roger Cohen,
the drummer, and Hiebel, the frontman
and percussionist. Cardenas calls the
three "the uterus of the band."
Cardenas and Hiebel met at Mega
Comics and Games. Both were enthu-
siastic about ska music and forming a
band. Cohen said he found his way into
the band through gainesvillebands.com.
The other members fell into place.
Although The Duppies fell to-
gether, they didn't fall into ska music.
They share a need and a passion for
ska unfulfilled by mainstream radio.
"That facet of music isn't represented
in a wide medium anymore. We missed
hearing it played live," Cardenas said.
Cardenas said that Jamaican popu-
lar music has existed for more than 40
years with many
Amanda different sub-geitres

"This music is cel-
ebratory music. Ska music came around
in 1963 or 1962, after the Jamaican inde-
pendence: happened," Cardenas said.
"This music was created with the sole
purpose of uplifting peoples' spirits
after all the years of colonialism."
Cardenas said the band members'
backgrounds come together to merge
into ska music. Most of the members
have side projects such as punk, blues
and electronic groups.
"We pay tribute to what we play,"
Cardenas said. "We're not doing imita-
tions because that wouldn't be doing it
ON THE CHEAP $
Thriftlings find hip hangout
By JESSICA WEINSTEIN
Gainesville can be an expensive town.
When dinner and the movies don't seem
worth the rising cost and live shows require one
to shell out cash, what's a broke Gator to do?
Music fans looking for a good time on the
cheap can find the answer in a bright purple
house that is a staple of the "student ghetto"
Tim and Terry's Music and More, 1417 NW
1st Ave., is a sandwich counter, convenience
store, guitar shop, bar and venue for local
bands. The vibe is laid back and the shows are
usually free. On weeknights the entertainment
is the clientele itself, a diverse group of students
and locals who come to jam.
This amateur hour is one well spent.
Monday night's "Modem Folk Jam" brings
banjos, guitars, drums, mandolins, violins and
their owners together to make noise and talk
Once I found myself whaling on the bongos
with a band late into the night.
I had never played drums before.
For you thriftlings looking to learn more
about an instrument, "The Purple Store" offers
a great opportunity for informal lessons. Most
people are happy to show you what they know.
;-The food is good with some menu items
in the 'money-you-scrounged-doing-laundry'
Two dollars will get you a "Musicians
Friend," a hot dog and 16 oz soda. Cough up
$2.50 for grilled cheese and a Red-Pop. For more
complicated orders, expect to wait a while with
a 50 percent chance your food will turn up as
Those of you who are not underage may
have better luck with your orders since Tim and
Terry's has license to sell bottled alcohol.
I recommend Tim and Terry's for its atmo-
sphere. On a good day, it's possible to have a
good time without spending a dime. The wrap-
around porch and backyard deck are perfect
places to settle back with a drink on a summer
night, take in the music or even make some

New' DMB pleases fans old and new
Dave Matthews Band
He did it. Again.
Not wasting much time from his last live
concert release, Dave Matthews joins his infa-
mous band to create "Stand Up," the band's
newest studio release since 2003- Using
techniques old and new, the album provides
a breath of fresh air to hang to die-hard fans
and attract new ones.
The big-band sound that dominates DMB's
early albums makes a much-welcomed return
this time around. For disgruntled fans feeling
the band lost its feverish passion way back in
the '90s, tracks like "Everybody Wake Up"
bring back the blaring, explosive music that
helped DMB reach iconic levels. These are the
tracks fans want to hear live at concerts not
the ones we use for bathroom breaks.
In planning "Stand Up," however, the
band must've thought about attracting new
audiences and moving with the times. In an
industry where Ashlee Simpson can sell one
million records, talented bands must figure
out a way to keep them-
selves appealing without
losing their roots.
The diverse tracks on
"Stand Up" break apart
DMB's legendary, yet
sound, allowing new listeners to savor it one
ingredient at a time. Like an elegant dish,
each track's importance to the outcome is
vital. "Dreamgirl" opens the album with the
fading chants of Dave' himself, mystifying
listeners to come closer. "American Baby"
plucks lightly at guitar melodies, foreshad-
owing music to come. "Out of My Hands"
strips down to Dave Matthews on piano, a
rarity in itself, telling a story of helplessness
Each song adds to the big picture. "Stand
Up" takes chances a band must take to keep
up with changing trends.
DMB does not sell out

DMB tours makes several
stops in Florida this summer, including the
Ford Amphitheatre in Tampa ont July 14 and
the Sound Advice Amphitheatre in West Palm
Beach on.July 16 and 17. Tickets are still avail-
able for these shows.
Even with DMB's thirteenth release, its
concept has not grown old talented musi-
cians, worthy messages and an unmistakable
sound will always prevail.
'Star Wars' battles hit-season finales.
T here is no doubt the third
installment of George
Lucas's cash cow opened
in a fury last Thursday.
Grossing more than $50
million in its first night, "Star
Wars: Revenge of the Sith" will

mind is could it have done

television's season finales battle
against major movie openings?
Last Thursday, we had a rare
and epic battle between a movie
giant and a massive television
lineup. With CBS's "Survivor:
Palau," "Without a Trace" and
"CSI" all ending their seasons
that evening, it seemed that
more people tuned into the tube

Altogether, the entire CBS
Thursday lineup from 8 p.m. to

million viewers. If CBS charged

price of $6.50 to the 44 million
viewers, the Thursday night

brought in a whopping $286
Although May sweeps will
soon be over and Hollywood
cinema will control the season,
it seemed that in this case, the
force was with TV.

SEC BASEBALL TOURNAMENT
Gators victorious after miracle 8th
By TIM CASEY

HOOVER, Ala. The UF
baseball team was primed for
The Gators rolled into
the Southeastern Conference
tournament after sweeping
Vanderbilt in Nashville to
clinch the SEC champion-
The Razorbacks were
itching for a chance at re-
demption after being swept
by Mississippi last weekend,
barely qualifying for the tour-
Both teams reversed
momentum twice, with
the Gators winning 9-8
Wednesday in the opening
game for both squads.
UF coach Pat McMahon
said some people watching
the game probably turned off
Those people would be
surprised to see that the
Gators (39-18) came back
from an 8-2 deficit during a
game that lasted three and a
"We just reached down
and tried to find a way to get
it done," McMahon said. "If
you keep battling away and
getting quality at-bats, good
things can happen."

-Matt LaPorta slides safely into home in the first inning against Arkansas on Wednesday on
an RBI single by Brian Jeroloman..
Both teams sent a fresh-
man left-handed pitcher out
to start the game. -
Arkansas never trailed un-
til the Gators scored the win-
ning run in the bottom of the
ninth inning, when Stephen
Barton hit a walk-off single.
The Razorbacks (37-19)
scored two runs in the first
inning off UF starter Stephen
Locke, and added one more
in the second inning.
Those runs would be all
Razorback starting pitcher
Nick Schmidt would need.
He pitched seven innings
in which he allowed two runs
and seven hits.
"I really didn't have my
best stuff tonight," Schmidt
said. "I was leaving my
breaking ball up in the zone."
However, once Schmidt
left the game, his impressive
performance was overshad-
owed by a six-run eighth in-

The secret e-mails of the Ricky, Saban alliance
A after all the bad blood, drugs and
holistic workshops, the disgruntled,
now-reborn Ricky Williams could
be playing for the Miami Dolphins in 2005.
So why the change of heart, you ask?
Luckily, I was able to illegally intercept
personal e-mails between Ricky and new
Dolphins coach Nick Saban. If you're a
member of the FBI, please disregard this
It began with Saban introducing himself
to Williams and asking Ricky to reveal fu-
ture plans. Here are the rest of the messages
written throughout a three-month period:
RW: Coach, thanks for writing and sorry
for the long delay in responding. I'm cur-
rently in India hanging with three Buddhist
S monks and smoking
peyote with a former
I'm not really dig-
^ going football right
now, but I am think-
Andrew ing of opening a
Abramson fruit-smoothie stand
Drew's Control in Coral Gables.
email@example.com Anyway,I'm about to
play tetherball so I'll
give you a shout out later. Peace.
NS: Ricky, hope your tetherball game is
as mean as your football game. I spoke to .
the mayor of Coral Gables and the city is
overrun with smoothie stands they're
actually thinking of shutting down a couple.
I'm glad to see you're living out the dream
of most men by smoking peyote with a play-
mate, but how about your dream of playing
pro sports that so few can ever experience?
Ricky, you have your whole life to do drugs

reer is slipping away.
RW: Coach, greetings from Rwanda,
where I'm spoon-feeding starving children.
The playmate joined me on this voyage. I
know what you're saying about my football
career, but football is barbaric. Who wants to
get the crap beat out of them for, 10 years?
Didn't you ever feel like quitting the game?

NS: Ricky, to tell you the truth, I was ready to quit
football for good in Oct. when my former team, LSU,
seemed uninterested in my antics. I was going to retire
and grow potatoes in Idaho. But then we played the
Florida Gators. We were losing in the fourth quarter
and suddenly it all came together and we spanked the
Gators in the Swamp. I looked over at UF coach Ron
Zook and said to myself, 'I need to keep coaching be-
cause not everyone gets to coach forever.'
RW: Haha. Yeah, Zook was pretty bad. I guess foot-
ball can be a key ingredient to healing a wounded soul.

I know a bearded fella that would look great in a No.

tact and we've removed the dartboard with your face
on it. We've even ordered a case of Prozac, and there
are about six former Playmates here in Miami ready to
jump on the Ricky bandwagon again.
RW: Thanks Coach, see you this summer. By the
way, is peyote a banned substance in the NFL?
