So Stealthy, we didn’t know they were here

Can we blame Bud Selig? Pointing to poor attendance figures at Everett’s Comcast Arena, the Washington Stealth lacrosse team announced that it was moving north to Langley, B.C.

Clearly, the Stealth, which marketed itself as “Hockey with Double Entendres,” struggled to introduce a lesser-known sport to the Northwest. Looking to attract more fans in British Columbia, the Stealth will wear ice skates on the field and fight more often than hockey players.

Pot-in-the-belly pigs: A Snohomish farmer is creating a new cut of pork by feeding his pigs the roots, stems and other parts of the marijuana plant left over from the production of medical marijuana. A butcher shop at the Pike Place Market sells the “pot pig” bacon for $17 a pound.

Or you can approximate the result by rolling a joint in bacon rather than a Zig-Zag paper. Note: Prosciutto, while more expensive, is easier to keep lit.

Outfoxed: CNN is bringing back the political debate show “Crossfire,” which will pit four regular hosts against each other, among them former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

But to win back viewers from Fox News and MSNBC, CNN will change up the format: tag-team wrestling with unlimited use of folding chairs. And Gingrich will wear a Mexican wrestling “Lucha libre” mask.
