Wasn't it enough Tommy Rees went to Lake Forest High School -- a "who's richer" rival of New Trier -- and is QB1 for the University of Notre Dame -- the team I root for? That should be all the Kevin Bacon-ish connections I need to this family. But, nooooo. That was not meant to be. Now I have to deal with Meghan Rees, Tommy's 21-year-old sister and Miami (OH) -- my former university of choice -- student.
You see, friends, Meghan was arrested on Saturday for public intoxication after "a disturbance in section 116" at Ross-Ade Stadium. Sigh. Mug shot and a more presentable Twitter profile picture following the jump.
Forget that Tommy had the game of his life on Saturday, because when the Internet is involved, lets just throw that lame shit out the window. Instead, we apparently need to talk about how Meghan may be a bit loose legged and a nut job! I don't really care about all that. Who doesn't get arrested and sleep around in college? It's only natural.
I am more interested in how this "disturbance" started. Did someone call Tommy out for his ever so adorable ways of turning the ball over? The Irish's lackluster 0-2 start? Or maybe she is just "bat shit crazy".
Regardless, sometimes I hate being a faux Irish beat reporter.
