Five quick links to start your day (Juice on the way) ...
1. Look, no one likes it when your credit card comes back rejected at a bar or restaurant. But check out what ex-Yankee Hideki Irabu is said to have done in Japan after his plastic was turned down for the 20 — that's not a typo — mugs of beer he had allegedly just downed.
Irabu, 39, became angered after his credit card was rejected. He then allegedly pushed the bartender against the wall, pulled his hair and smashed at least nine liquor bottles at a bar in Osaka, western Japan, a police official said on condition of anonymity, citing department policy.
The best part of the story was the bar then allowed Irabu to get out another credit card to pay with. That one, thankfully and apparently, went through. [AP]
