EXPENSIVE LAP DANCE: TRIP TO THE FAMOUS NY STRIP CLUB, SCORES, COSTS HIM $28,000
Maybe he should have left home without it - a top insurance executive racked up a whopping $28,000 American Express bill in one trip to the East Side strip club Scores. Now Mitchell Blaser, the chief financial officer of Swiss Re's Americas unit, wants his money back - claiming in court papers that the $28,000 bill is almost as inflated as some of the mammary mecca's dancers. Blaser and his two friends actually "only spent about $2,000," said his lawyer, Leonard Zack. Scores spokesman Lonnie Hanover maintains Blaser went on a bosom bender. "He partied like a rock star," buying $3,200 bottles of champagne and blowing $7,000 on strippers, Hanover said.

IS A BLIND GOLFER CHEATING BY SEEING?
One of the world's leading blind golfers is under investigation for claims he can see. Britain's double world champion David Morris has been accused of being able to see more than his rivals. The 61-year-old became the first man to win his sport's top title twice last month when he trounced the field with a 24-shot margin of victory.
