Bobby Cox Making Switch to Smokeless Tobacco, Spotted at Jets Game Yelling at Chicks

In early March, the New York Mets announced that for the team's final season at Shea Stadium, there will be a complete ban on smoking inside the stadium. When longtime Atlanta Braves Manager Bobby Cox caught wind of this, he assumed the ban was only on cigarettes. "I think that's a great idea," Cox said after Monday night's 7-3 victory over Washington at Turner Field. Upon finding out the ban includes all types of smoking products, even cigars and blunts, known to be favorites of the large-bellied skipper, Cox became livid. "The clubhouse doesn't count," Cox quipped. The Braves play 9 games at Shea this season and Cox has already begun researching smokeless tobacco products and has consulted 'dip aficionado' Lenny Dykstra for some advice as to which product to use the next time he comes to New York.

This past September, Cox was seen at a New York Jets football game at the Meadowlands vs. the Steelers. At halftime, Cox went to the stairwell to puff on the remains of his tailgate blunt and was spotted pressed firmly up against the railing pumping both fists in the air screaming and encouraging young co-eds: "T-I-T-S! TITS! TITS! TITS! Show Your Tits! Show Your Tits!" Following this scene, a Steelers fan complained to local police and the stairwell has been shut down ever since. Thanks for ruining a good thing for us, Bobby!
