Magnums, huh? You go, Malik Alvin!

We have a leader in the clubhouse for goofiest college basketball story of the year.

It's about Binghamton's Malik Alvin.

He's been suspended for stealing condoms.

According to the report, Alvin was confronted by Wal-Mart security last month when officers said he tried to leave the store with contents from a box of condoms without paying. Naturally, the junior college transfer took off running and was caught ... but not before knocking a 66-year-old woman to the ground and causing her to suffer a concussion. In other words, Alvin's attempt to practice safe sex led to an unsafe shopping experience for an old lady.

Alvin has been charged with petty larceny and third-degree assault. Somehow, he pleaded not guilty because I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation for stuffing condoms down your pants, running from security and trampling a senior citizen on a Sunday afternoon at the local Wal-Mart. Let he who has never done that cast the first stone.

Anyway, the best part is that Alvin didn't just steal any condoms; he stole Magnums.

That's impressive.

Particularly for a 6-0, 165-pound guard.

I call BS.

But if you're gonna go down you might as well go down carrying something serious.

So for that, I say hats off to Malik Alvin and send a Get Well Soon to the woman who took a charge for Wal-Mart security.

That's a hustle point in my book.

Thats funny! I know I shouldn't but I can't resist.....I still can't understand why the kid was stealing Magnums? You'd think he'd been proud of that....or asking the clerk if they had anything bigger? I could understand it more perhaps if he'd stolen the fingertip rubbers the bank girls use....for the guy hung like a hamster in January.....but Magnums? I do hope the old lady is ok though....good thing that wasn't on tobacco road though they'd called him for an intentional foul.....or perhaps it wouldn't have happened to begin'd been a travel call before he got to the door....or worse yet in Alabama or Louisana after the football game last Saturday....he'd been shot before he got through the self-checkout. If they take their football that serious down there can you imagine what they'd do to guy for shoplifting? Maybe the NCAA can pass "emergency legislation" requiring the colleges to provide condoms to student athletes to promote safe sex? Hey Gary, think you could pass that along to the NABC and tell them that Billy Gillispie is gaining a recruiting advantage in lexington because he's got a slush fund from the Alumni that provides Blue and White condoms to the players? Blue for away games, white for home of course....

Congrats to Malik and his Magnums!!    It's been a bazaar year in college basketball already.  Everytime I read a post, I expect them to all be related at the end....something like Malik was stealing condoms because a Morris twin shot him with a BB gun and Xavier Henry was waiting in the car with Lute Olson's ex wife as the getaway driver.

I love it, and eagerly await the next report of stupidity.
