Deadbeat Browning

Tom Browning pitched a perfect game once upon a time. These days? Things are less than perfect:

Former Cincinnati Reds pitcher Tom Browning has been arrested and charged with not paying child support, according to jail records uncovered by the Associated Press.
Browning, best known for throwing a perfect game in 1988 and currently a Minor League pitching coach in the Reds organization, was arrested Friday and was being held on $99,008.36 bail, according to the AP.

I’m guessing he won’t be making that annual April appearance at the Home Depot near my house this year.

    Man, I have got to find out where the $8.36 is coming from?

    My child support is always rounded up (or more accurately, rounded down) to even numbers. Even with the exchange rate, it still manages to work out to even numbers.

    This is going to screw with my head for months.

    I need a job.

    Ron –

    I was just about to say the same thing.  That might be the most specific bail amount ever.  I have a job, and it’ll screw with my head. 

    It’s like something that the comedian Lewis Black once overheard someone say at the mall: “If it weren’t for my horse, I never would’ve spent that year in college.”
