Well, I could've told you that

Apparently some Hall of Famer owes over a million in back taxes.

Come on, people. He has a handlebar moustache. Nothing screams "crook!" like a handlebar moustache.

Seriously, you'd think these people had never seen a movie made before, uh, 1930.

With a name like Rollie Fingers and a handlebar moustache? Of course that's what he did.

Unless, of course, that's the name and picture of his grandfather who was alive during the Prohibition and sold moonshine in the back of his shoeshine business - I think that's the backstory.

Apparently he wasn't content to rest on his laurels as a ballplayer.

I wonder if there's a Hall of Fame for tax evaders.

And you're right. The villainous moustache alone should have been a tip-off.

jrav, I always knew that was how baseball players REALLY got their start.

heart, once you stop making the headlines, you just get BORED. I can understand wanting to grab up some attention. And keep his, um, hard-earned investment dividends.

roonie, yup. It's almost as egregious as Richard Hatch. At least ol' Rich went out of his way to make himself look merely crazy, rather than criminal.

Well, he thought that mustache wax was a legitimate business expense deduction.

norbiz, hmmm... think I could get my law firm to spring for my hair treatments? Roots are unprofessional, you know ;)

It's really too bad his nickname isn't Rollie "Sticky" Fingers.

I also don't understand how you can be unsure whether or not you've been witholding $1.4 million from the govt.

prairie, I am pretty sure I'm not... and if I am, I would like to know where the hell it is so I can at least enjoy my ill-gotten wealth.
