Irony of the Day candidates

Two little items that struck me as funny, or perhaps ironic, at least in an Alanis Morissette kind of way.

(I once had a wise co-worker give the best differentiation between coincidence and irony I've ever heard: If it makes you cringe, it's irony. I've supplemented that with: If it makes you laugh, it probably is, too.)

Thus:

Item 1: A very unhealthy and imprisoned Jack "Dr. Death" Kevorkian says he won't commit suicide.

Item 2: Pete Coors, head of the pisswater beer company that bears his name, gets himself cited for driving under the influence.

By the way, speaking of "I fought the law and the law won," what's up with the Cincinnati Bengals?

They drafted a guy today who got kicked off his college team, ostensibly to replace the guy who just got suspended for a drug violation.

That's on top of the not one, but two draft picks who got arrested/charged before they could even sign - one after sliding in the draft because he got arrested on the eve of his bowl game - and the second-year player who's been arrested four times since Christmas alone.

I'm a Raiders fan (you know, John Matuszak, Todd Marinovich, Lyle Alzado, Bill Romanowski) and even I'm going, "What's up with that?"

Must be something in the water in the AFC North. The Steelers' first-round pick has been busted twice since the draft himself.
