    Hungry Cheerleader Claims Harassment Over Tater TotsCourtney Prince, a former cheerleader for the New York Rangers, is suing Madison Square Garden for sexual harassment. The franchise is hitting back in the usual manner: feeding the press details alleging the plaintiff is a big slut. In short, it’s classy behavior all around — and, according to the Daily News today, it gets even classier. The whole federal suit really comes down to lurid come-ons over tater tots in a bar called Daddy-O. According to sworn testimony, the Rangers VP Jason Vogel and Times sports writer Jason Diamos tricked the complainant into visiting a bar via classic high-school feint “All our friends are going to be there!” When said friends failed to materialize, “Vogel ordered tater tots and she ordered a quesadilla,” Diamos had a cocktail, and soon the two men were trying to kiss Prince and floating a bathroom-tryst proposal. The defendants don’t deny the situation but claim that Prince initiated the sex talk. Why didn’t the cheerleader leave? “Because I wanted my quesadilla,” states the deposition. We have nothing to add. Who Started the Sex Talk at Daddy-O? [NYDN]
