Charlie Sheen Show to Benefit Beaten Giants Fan Bryan Stow

Those of us who would rather gouge our eyes out with a spoon than listen to another one of Charlie Sheen's epic rants -- onstage at that -- should maybe reconsider shelling out $100 for the weekend event.

Sheen's publicist has reportedly said he will donate proceeds from merchandise sold at Saturday's "Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour in San Francisco to Bryan Stow, the Giants fan who was viciously beaten last month.

So maybe you should purchase that T-shirt with the obnoxiously famous Sheen saying: "Duh! Winning."

Stow, 42, was severely beaten on March 31 as he left Dodger Stadium after the opener game between the Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers. He remains in critical condition.

Stow was walking to his car after the game when two men wearing Dodgers attire started heckling him. They attacked him and continued beating him even after he was unconscious. He suffered brain swelling and a fractured skull.

Yesterday, doctors started to take Stow out of his medically induced coma, yet say it may be several days before he shows any change in his condition.

Police released sketches of the two suspects, but have no leads. A $150,000 reward has been offered leading to their arrest.

Well, at least Sheen's tiresome antics have finally found a purpose.
