The Settlement Will Be Paid in Singles

Deadspin reports that:
Sports Illustrated announced this morning that it and former Alabama coach Mike Price have "amiably resolved" the lawsuit Price filed against the magazine for a story it ran in 2003.

If you don’t remember it, the story -- which ultimately cost Price his dream job at Alabama -- detailed Price's dalliances with two strippers in a Pensacola, Fla. hotel room.

. . . .

So SI's one paragraph statement today, trying to close the issue, serves two masters: SI hopes people don't pry too much more into their shoddy reporting, and Mike Price hopes people forget that, well, he had a threesome (or foursome) with a bunch of strippers. One hand washing the other . . . .
