Charlie Sheen, in town to appear in his disastrous live show, took batting practice with the UH baseball team Monday night.
"Guess Charlie Sheen has Cougar blood, as well," UH spokesman Richard Bonnin tweeted.
Sheen thus edged out James Franco, who has been accepted for the Fall 2012 semester into the university's Creative Writing Program. But just as we doubt Franco will take batting practice, Sheen offered no literary displays on the UH campus.
Check back tomorrow for our report on his "Torpedo of Truth" show.
