Krystle Campbell upset a number of her fellow Eagles cheerleaders when she missed practice to spend time with her boyfriend, rehabbing Phillies slugger Ryan Howard, in his hometown of St. Louis when the Phillies played the Cardinals on July 19-22.
We're told that Campbell did not tell her coaches why she was missing practice and that she won't face discipline for being absent. Cheerleaders are supposed to miss practice only if they are ill or there is a death in the family. Previous absentees have been made to work games in the luxury suites rather than dance on the field as punishment.
Campbell, who accompanied Howard to the Rothman Institute at Jefferson Hospital yesterday, is a suburban teacher and briefly dated Flyers center Jeff Carter before getting together with Howard about a year ago. She's been an Eagles cheerleader for several years.
Many people have taken issue with the sticker at Geno's Steaks instructing customers to order in English, but Jose Oviedo says his beef started over Geno's beef.
Oviedo, 39, who was arrested about 7 a.m. yesterday after scratching the passenger- side door of Geno's owner Joey Vento's Cadillac Escalade, says he passed a truck unloading meat about 4:30 a.m. yesterday and noticed the boxes were from Uruguay and stamped November 2009. He asked the workers why the restaurant used frozen meats and then a few minutes later a police car approached him and friends and an officer asked, "Why are you giving Joey's guys a hard time?"
After that is when, in Oviedo's words, "I did a stupid thing." On his way home after hanging out with friends and having "two 12-ounce beers in 2 1/2 hours," Oviedo admits, he scratched the door of Vento's Escalade with "the back of a keychain bottle opener. It was a surface scratch."
