BARRINGTON N.J. -- Stale Gum has placed Lap Top on the 15-day Disabled List with a broken left hinge, an injury that has been bothering it the last few days. The injury is not blog-threatening, and Top hopes to be back in action in about two to three weeks.
Stale Gum manager Chris Harris noticed last Saturday a small protusion coming from the lower-left corner of Top's LCD screen, but kept him in the game. It wasn't until he attempted to shut Lap Top down for the evening did he notice something.
"I was posting to YouTube the first part of my 2009 Topps Magic Football video break, when I tried to shut down for the evening. But the screen was stuck," said Harris. "I knew it was bad, and that's when I called the Geek Squad."
To replace Top, Harris said he will continue to update his blog by driving to his parent's house and using their computer; but warns his fans on to expect too much original content for the next few days.
