LOSING!! Out of the thousands of people in the audience for Chalie Sheen’s first show performance the other night there were more boos then cheers for the troubled Sheen. There has been a big response on the web of unhappiness regarding sheen’s first gig at Detroit’s Fox Theater. After practically being bood off stage it was overheard that most people were asking for refunds rather than wanting to ask questions they had for him at his train wreck of a show. Heres a tip, you will be "winning" by saving your money instead of buying a ticket. Clearly it doesn’t pay to see sheen rant live..
