Now I don’t usually delve into this seedy underbelly of sports blogging often, but this Deadspin reported story is just simply too funny to not make my site’s requirements.
According to a new biography’s excerpts former Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin had a fling with Michigan legend and former Laker Glen Rice in 1987. Here is the excerpt (acquired from the Enquirer, so you know this is legit)
In the book, which will be published on September 20th, McGinniss claims Sarah had a steamy interracial hookup with basketball stud Glen Rice less than a year before she eloped with her husband Todd.
Sarah hooked up with the NBA great, then a 6-foot-8 junior at the University of Michigan when he was playing in a college basketball tournament in Alaska in 1987, the book says. At the time, Sarah, just out of college, was working as a sports reporter for the Anchorage TV station KTUU.
A publishing source told The ENQUIRER that McGinniss claims Sarah had a “fetish” for black men at the time and he quotes a friend as saying Sarah had “hauled (Rice’s) ass down.”
In the book, McGinniss quotes Rice as confirming the one-night stand
Now I understand that nowadays Sarah Palin is considered to be a cult sex symbol with the whole porn parody of her and all, but 1987 News Reporter Sarah Palin is definitely way below Glen Rice’s level. Come on man, you played for Michigan.
