Sh*t happened 4/20/15: Rays woes, meth bust


The weather blazed, then blew, and anyone taking I-75 on Saturday was SOL. How was your weekend? Here's the roundup.

FRIDAY, APRIL 17:

A Pinellas man was sentenced to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to manipulating more than 100 girls to send him explicit images and videos online. You know what's funny about the fact that there are still young women out there being coerced into sending nudes to someone they've never met in real life? Nothing.

Former Rays manager Joe Maddon was ejected from a game for the first time as a member of the Chicago Cubs organization. Apparently the umpire told him that he heard real Cuban wasn't supposed to have salami on it.

Sixteen people were arrested as part of a multi-agency meth bust in Hillsborough and Polk Counties. Sixteen meth manufacturers, users and distributors! That's, like, 22 teeth.

SATURDAY, APRIL 18:

A collision shut down northbound I-75 for hours. Drivers who spent most of their day in gridlocked traffic were shocked to learn it was actually because an accident happened, and not just, you know, Saturday.

SUNDAY, APRIL 19:

And finally, the Yankees beat the Rays 5-3 to complete a sweep against the home team at the Trop for the first time in almost a decade. Tampa has officially stopped returning Rick Kriseman's calls.
