C.J.: Legal storm brews Ex-Viking sues weather guy for $150,000

It just seems wrong for an enormous ex-NFLer to go after a guy formerly known as Sunny.

But Esera Tuaolo clearly wants back the $150,000 he invested in the stock of companies called Want Some Weather Inc. and Weather Eye Inc. They were created to provide forecasts for radio stations, says a lawsuit that Tuaolo filed in Hennepin County District Court against Steve Wolhenhaus.

Wolhenhaus was unfortunately forced to be known as meteorologist Sunny Haus a long time ago under a different KARE management. Wolhenhaus is CEO of Weather Eye, according to the www.wantsomeweather.com website. A woman who identified herself as Wolhenhaus' wife said she would ask him to return my call today.

Tuaolo told me that he understood the aforementioned companies had been combined.

"He Wolhenhaus said what he did was combine the companies but he also said he liquidated the companies, but it's the website still up," Tuaolo said.

On Tuesday afternoon, www.wantsomeweather.com sent you to www.weathereyeonline.com.

"It's not like I invested 150 dollars," Tuaolo said. "I'm just trying to get my money back. I've got kids. They need shoes."

Is Tuaolo going Latrell Sprewell with a little Feed-My-Family dialogue?

"Don't go there, now," said Tuaolo, who said he never made Randy Moss' millions.


K.G. sweating in metro

Honey-accented Brit Chris Wright always sounds like he's dishing out loads of blarney when asked about the Timberwolves.

Frankly, however, I was expecting a better story about why Kevin Garnett has remained in the metro, given the Wolves' embarrassing season, his love of the Lynx notwithstanding.

In past years, K.G. has eschewed Minnesota this time of year to be just another multimillionaire in Malibu. The imagination runs wild: Something up with his wife, Brandi?

"Why is he hanging around? To work out," said the Wolves' prez. "He's already working out every single day."

So they are putting weight on him?

"Yeah. He is fired up," Wright said. "He's ready to go again."

Oh, Minnesotans are concerned that K.G.'s ready to go, all right. Go, as in a trade. And when Minneapolis-area weights are the only ones that will do, I think he's being fattened up for a trade, and I'm not alone.
