We didn’t miss FredEx getting the Axe

FredEx, the Sultan of Slot, the Slot Machine, Freddie "Hollywood" Mitchell got the boot over the weekend.  We were in Chicago so we got the news via our blackberry, but the Daily News headline of "FredExed" seems to say it all.  Poor Freddie let his mouth get in the way.  I actually enjoyed Freddie as late as his Frohawk days, but the whole Superbowl ordeal was unfortunate.  Anyway, Bye Bye Freddie, we will always remember 4th and 26.  (unfortunately that’s about all you ever did.)

Even the Soccer peeps are making fun of him.

So, Clint Dempsey, you’re the hottest player in MLS, Sports Illustrated wants to interview you for a story, and you can pick any dining establishment you want, all expenses paid.

"Why don’t we meet at Dunkin’ Donuts?"

You might recall that ex-Eagles receiver Freddie Mitchell stuck SI’s Peter King with a $449 dinner tab during the NFL playoffs. For the record, Dempsey — the surging New England Revolution midfielder who leads MLS in scoring — ordered a blueberry muffin (cost: $1.42).

He’ll learn.
