I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
It's old news now, but we've all heard about and discussed how Jack Johnson's parents scammed him, stole almost all of his money, and have left him bankrupt, and with a mountain of debt.
Unfortunately, per Deadspin, that wasn't the first time they've screwed over a family member.
According to two sources with knowledge of the transaction, Johnson's parents secretly seized ownership of his grandfather's Las Vegas condominium to use as collateral for a loan. (To make this easy to follow, as there are multiple Jack Johnsons involved, we're going to number them. Jack Three is the NHL player; Jack Two is his father, who is accused of scamming both; Jack One [who died in October 2008] is the grandfather.) Clark County (Nev.) records show Jack One's deed to the condo dated May 5, 2002, when he retired to Vegas. On Oct. 20, 2004, Jack Two requested a change in deed over into his name, listing his Ann Arbor, Mich. address. Two sources tell us that Jack Two transferred the deed without Jack One's knowledge. The signature for Jack One on the original deed (left) and on the deed transfer (right) are significantly different.
I definitely recommend reading the whole article. Just a sad story all around, and if it's all true, no wonder JMFJ doesn't speak with his parents anymore.
He's starting to remind me of Kirk Maltby, gritty player who gets under the opponents skin and can score from time to time. BTW, the Wings have won 6 straight and are in first place in the Atlantic.
Which means UM won the daily battle with Wiscy 70-69.
