Denny Neagle

Denny Neagle got off easy. He paid only forty bucks for the blow job he got from a West Colfax hooker in early December. But that head trip could cost the Rockies $19 million if the team can't find a way to avoid paying off the rest of Neagle's contract. The 36-year-old pitcher was charged with a DUI in 2003 but kept his job; apparently driving while drunk sets a more acceptable example for young sports fans than does cruising for sex. Then again, back in 2003 Neagle could still pitch; because of an arm injury, he never saw any action this past season. Except on Colfax, of course.
