Nick Lachey sighting


So what does Nick Lachey do when he’s not recording pop hits, running the Tacoma Rainiers and organizing celebrity softball games? Apparently, he likes to catch some football down at the Varsity Grill. At least, that’s what he did this afternoon. That’s Tacoma resident and Puckertime podcast host Sto Bailie with him (and he tells me Lachey is a Bengals fan.)

You know, just in case you’re wondering about all the screaming girls and traffic in that area Friday afternoon.

Hey, Avril, you’re so fine …

The Rubinoos recently sued Avril Lavigne, claiming the pop princess ripped off their late ’70s track “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend” for her hit “Girlfriend.”


Avril Lavigne’s music derivative? I know, I know. Say it ain’t so! But the bright side of that scandal is that it gives me something fun to write about. My column in this Friday’s GO focuses on popular musicians whose “muses” should probably demand back royalties.


And as I researched my topic, wondering how painfully obvious it was to everyone else that Lavigne likely lifted a hook from Toni Basil,
