L.A. Coliseum was used as location for filming of porn video in 2001.

Think the Reggie Bush scandal was the sleaziest thing that ever happened in Los Angeles Coliseum? Think again. Word comes from The Los Angeles Times this weekend that a football-themed pornographic video was filmed inside Los Angeles Coliseum in September of 2001. The video, titled The Gangbang Girl #32, reportedly "featured 40 minutes of group sex on the gridiron turf." As The Times said it "learned."

 "I was just in awe that we were at the Coliseum," said a star of the film, who goes by the name Mr. Marcus. "I've made movies for about 20 years and I've done a lot of things, but that one really stands out.… I mean, who gets to have sex on the Coliseum floor?"

Marcus said the football-themed footage was shot on a single night, including some non-explicit scenes filmed in a Coliseum locker room that did not make the final cut. The Coliseum is not identified by name in the video, which was made in 2001 and released in 2002. About half of the 90-minute movie was filmed elsewhere.

How the crew got permission to use the national historic landmark — which was built as a memorial to
World War I veterans — is unclear. Attempts to reach a representative of the production company, Anabolic Video, were unsuccessful."

No word exactly how The Times "learned" this is open for debate, but you can speculate that it was done the old fashioned way. One also has to speculate that somebody between 2001 and 2012 at paper had to have known this film existed, but there there were other things more important to report on between now and then*. (You think print journalists have cleaner minds than your average sports blogger? Silly rabbit.)

So why is so much of a big deal being made about it now? Because the Coliseum's general manager at the time, Patrick Lynch, is knee deep in a scandal involving "Coliseum financial irregularities and lax oversight by its nine-member governing commission." (Lynch's lawyer denied his cliend knew anything about the filming.) The commission, reportedly "at the brink of insolvency," turned over control of the historic Colosseum to USC on May 14.
