    Ted Williams & Johnny Unitas sons -- morons

    What is it with these morons who are children of sports stars? Were they so pampered and spoiled?

    First, John Henry Williams was an absolute bust in baseball, couldn't hit worth a lick....if hitting a baseball is genetic, John sure proved it otherwise, lolol

    and now this:

    Suit alleges John Unitas Jr. defrauded company

    June 21, 2003 wire reports

    BALTIMORE -- John Unitas' son has been accused in a lawsuit of defrauding and helping to bankrupt the company that bore the name of the Hall of Fame quarterback.

    The suit was filed Friday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Baltimore on behalf of John Unitas' widow, attorney and accountant. It alleges that John C. Unitas Jr. made himself the beneficiary of a $125,000 life insurance policy in the father's name, unbeknownst to other trustees of Unitas Management Corp., The (Baltimore) Sun reported Friday.

    The suit seeks the return of roughly $60,000 from Unitas Jr., but said the plaintiffs don't have a full account of the money that's alleged to be missing. The company managed licensing and sports memorabilia deals for Unitas Sr. and other former athletes.

    "Clearly throughout 2001 and most probably continuing through 2002, both before and after the death of Johnny Unitas, (John Unitas Jr.) pillaged and ravaged the funds of (Unitas Management Corp.) for his own use and benefit," the document claimed.

    The 14-year-old corporation also sought permission to reorganize under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, said Alan Grochal, a bankruptcy attorney for Unitas Management.

    Mark Jensen, an attorney for Unitas Jr. declined to comment in detail until he had seen the complaint.

    After John Unitas Sr. died Sept. 11, 2002, at age 69, his 90-percent control of Unitas Management Corp. transferred to his attorney, Charles M. Tatelbaum of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and his accountant, Howard Moffet of Pikesville, according to the complaint.

    The suit says Unitas Sr. told Moffet he was suspicious his son was "living beyond his means." Moffet declined late Friday to comment on the filings or on Unitas Sr.'s reported comments.

    Now could you imagine how bad of a hitter John Henry Williams would have been if his dad was AN AVERAGE hitter.

    His dad was the greatest hitter ever and he was horrible at hitting.

    It would be like if Jordan's kid couldn't dunk.

    John Henry Williams was probably so mad that his dad could hit so easily and that he could hit for jack so he frozen his dad's head to get some revenge on him.

    What a *&%@#$ loser!!!

    and the sad part is, John gets to share in the wealth Ted created.

    I think baseball is one of those rare sports where you get lots of fathers, sons, and grand-sons (like Ray Boone, Bob Boone, and Brett Boone)

    Don't see that happen to often in football (Tony and Anthony Dorsett) and basketball (Milt Wagner of the Lakers, Dejuan Wagner)...

    Don't forget Kobe and his dad. His pops might not have been that good of an NBA'er, but to even make it in the NBA says something about your skills.

    by the way, Kobe is name after something back in Japan (forgot what it was (a food dish? not sure)

    "My dad is famous, so that makes me famous"

    I guess thats the attitude they have.

    ahhhhh, that's right, the Kobe steaks -- they have that here in Los Angeles at those Japanese restaurants.

    my memory was shot last night.

    gotta stop sniffing the glue

    Who wants to bet that Ted's frozen head could do a better job of hitting than his son could?
