The lawyer-issued statement to the media is a sure-fire way of stopping unwanted attention.

I heard she has a sister who owns a restaurant in Arizona.

Tobias is the 47-year-old widow of a hedge fund owner who, under mysterious circumstances, was found dead five years ago in the pool of the couple's mansion. It was her fourth husband.

So...she's single then? Rawr!

Actually I think the man with her in the photo is her current husband/boyfriend.

"Ms. Tobias is distressed at the needless national attention that this incident has garnered and the unwarranted invasion of privacy by the press into her personal life, including the malicious and untrue reporting about her husband's tragic passing,"

Whatever murderer.

Miami Heat fan Filomena Tobias, who was pictured flipping the bird at a Chicago Bulls player, has issued a statement through an attorney, calling all the attention she has received "needless."

... then why the f*** did you do it?

Is it ironic that Noah was ejected from the game for obscenity and this classy queen 1 finger salutes him for it?

So. Does someone have a picture?

That site is very good at showing all sorts of pictures of stuff I should buy, but neglects entirely to SHOW A GODDAMN PICTURE OF THE FARKING PHOTO THAT THE ARTICLE IS ABOUT YOU STUPID WORTHLESS SACKS OF SHIAT!

/you don't make money because your articles suck. Not because you don't have enough obnoxious scripts and tracking cookies and other crap.

Damn new interface.

It's the video at the top right, conveniently bookmarked to show her at the very moment she flipped him off.

No. She did really heavy drugs for the first 40 years of her life. She has been clean for the last 25 years, and can remember everything.

I like the commenters who concluded the death was obviously a suicide.

She must have been having a really bad vagina day.  Just like the one she had on the day he husband was murdered... Um, I mean drowned.

Four husbands by age 47? Hell, let the gays have marriage, they can't make a mockery of it any worse than Mrs. Black Widow here.

I can't remember his name but I think he is a character actor that usually plays the bad guy in B movies.

but nobody starts doing heavy drugs until they're at least 8. wow!

That was the first thing I thought of too.

Why does she remind me of a bird? Or Calista Gingrich?
 
2013-05-16 01:27:17 AM
Is there more story to why this became a thing in the first place ("instantly famous" or whatever)? I don't get it. Seems like pretty standard-issue obnoxious sports fan behavior. From the headline I thought maybe the player decked someone. Or at least...

Good.  Anyone who gets this worked up over a game played by people they don't even know deserves everything bad that comes with that.  Get some farking perspective.

I'm assuming you made that just for this thread because that is Grade A awesome material right there. Definite photo shop contest winner.

If you're lucky enough to have sheets at a televised major sporting event where the players pass right by you, don't be surprised when your idiotic actions get broadcast around the world via the web.

She got lucky with the marriage, but that was all the luck she had it seems.

about 20 years ago  (Goddamn, I'm getting old) my mom won some M&Ms contest were we got an assload of M&Ms and center court box for the Hornets game.  I think they were playing the Bulls, I forget.
Anyway, the away team gets the ball, and one of the more famous players (Scottie Pippen?) gets the ball on a rebound and starts to head back down court. My brother (who was 12) yells out real loud "SCOTTIE PIPPEN IS GAY!". Dude just stops right there mid court and glares at us. Then he remembered he was playing a basketball game and continued on.

I presume the irony of this whole situation is lost on her.

She had an embarrassing emotional outburst at a player, specifically because he was ejected for an embarrassing emotional outburst.

Many people would use this as a teachable moment, apologize for the indiscretion, and alter her future behavior based on this experience. I expect nothing of the sort from her. She can eat shiat.
