With a reference to Caddyshack, that the lawsuit filed by Andrew Giuliani against Duke after he was kicked off the golf team be dismissed. The son of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani claimed promises made to him were broken when the Blue Devils dismissed him for what they said was a pattern of boorish behavior. Wrote federal magistrate Wallace W. Dixon, "Plaintiff's promissory estoppel claim brings to mind Carl Spackler's analysis from the movie Caddyshack (Orion Pictures, 1980): 'He's on his final hole. He's 455 yards away, he's gonna hit about a two-iron, I think.'" Andrew Giuliani, who plans on pursuing a professional golf career, received his degree in sociology from Duke this May. So he's got that going for him, which is nice.
As having Parkinson's disease, former NBA forward Brian Grant. The 37-year-old played for five teams in a 12-year career before retiring in 2006. After suffering tremors in his hand, Grant learned he had the disease in January and went public last week. "The fact that it happened to me, with this platform I've been given, means I'm supposed to get out there," he told The Oregonian. Grant (above) said he is trying to avoid taking drugs for as long as possible; he's devoted himself to an exercise regimen and a healthier diet. His best season was '00--01, when he averaged 15.2 points and 8.8 rebounds for the Heat. He was the winner of the NBA's citizenship award in 1999.
