From Miami New Times:
Stop us if you've heard this one: Miami Heat great Glen Rice had a "steamy" one-night stand with Tea Party queen bee Sarah Palin back when he was a University of Michigan star and she was a local TV sportscaster. Wait, no one has ever heard that one before because it's INSANE.
Yet it may just be true. Pieces of an epic new biography of Palin by Joe McGinniss have leaked to the web today and supposedly Rice himself confirms this actually happened.
The mind-bending hookup between the 6'8" forward who'd soon become the Heat's first real superstar and the Lord of Hockey Moms happened back in 1987, according to the copy of "Going Rogue" leaked to the National Enquirer. (Yeah, yeah, but they were right about John Edwards!)A publishing source told The ENQUIRER that McGinniss claims Sarah had a “fetish” for black men at the time and he quotes a friend as saying Sarah had “hauled (Rice’s) ass down.”
At the time, Rice was playing in a tournament in Alaska with the Wolverines and Palin was a sports reporter (see video above) at KTUU in Anchorage, the book says.
Less than a year later, Palin would elope to marry Todd, her current husband -- but not before shagging Rice! The biography supposedly "quotes Rice as confirming their one-night stand."
