Peeps, I know its been a week. I have been on a bit of a sabbatical lately. So i have not been able to post. Thanks for sticking around.
We Will Remember:
Black Moses (Isn’t that redundant?)
And Bernie (I want my milk and coooookies) Mac
Rest in peace brothers!
Olympic News – (In Bad Taste)
What the hell were the Spaniards thinking about when they decided to pose with the “slanted eyes?” Their poor excuses were not fooling anyone either. Pau Gasol (who played Pau Gasoft when I last saw him foshizzle fizzle against the Celtics while wearing my beloved purple and gold of the Lakers) said, ““It was supposed to be a picture that inspired the Olympic spirit.” What Olympic spirit would that be Pau? Hey if the Olympics were ever in Africa, maybe they can all wear blackface!
Speaking of black faces, I tend to agree with USA’s Jason Kidd who pointed out that if that were the Americans, specifically the black Americans who pulled such crap they would be on the first plane smoking back to the States. David Stern would be on the war path suspending players and condemning them left and right. The world would have reacted and the powers that be would be ready to give up some American booty.
Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number
At least the Chinese Olympic Team doesn’t think so when it comes to the age limits. They sent Jr. High schoolers to do their deeds and win gold. I mean just look at these girls! Do they look 16 to you? I know how sometimes a child looks older or younger than they really are – but practically the whole squad? They look like they should be watching Spongebob! Mitch Albom (Detroit Free Press Sports – Tuesday’s With Morrie) said it best: “What did you expect? Any country that would lip-sync out a 7-year-old singer because she wasn’t cute enough for the opening ceremony wouldn’t hesitate to use underage children to capture gold medals. That’s a no-brainer.”
Thats the Chinese government for you though. Rules only apply when they are the ones making them.
On The Upside:
Suffice it to say it DOES NOT SUCK to be Michael Phelps does it? This dude is cold smashing cats globally in these games. How about starting off with 6 golds with 6 world records! (12 total in his career and counting) I read today that this cat puts away 12000 calories per day during training. DAMN! I bet thats a record too for a world class swimmer.
Memo to the USA Olympic Committee: How could you be so stupid as to not invite Mark Spitz?
I guess that ASS whoppin that USA Men’s basketball put on defending gold medal team Greece sent a clear signal that this isn’t 2006. They may have gotten Dirk Nowitzki (Germany) out of his game. But Coach K’s is a coach who truly believes in beating opponents into submission. Before the game he showed the team a tape of Greece celebrating on the court aftet the game two years ago. Needless to say, they got attitude. Especially the ones who played on that team. Spain! Your next!
On To Politics:
Memo to Kwame Kilpatrick- Brotha stay in D Town. Don’t be tryin to crash the Dems convention in Denver. Take a page out of the John Edwards handbook! This is not about you!
Memo to geographically challenged brothers and sistas – While Russia has invaded the capital of Georgia, Atlanta is Ok. You can still drive down Peachtree!
Memo to bitter Hillary Clinton Supporters: Get over yourselves. Your girl lost! The Obama camp has bent over backwards to accomodate the Clinton’s ego all summer. The convention is coming up in two weeks. Please don’t go there and show your asses. You just look bad not to mention its an invitation to insert John McCain. Its like free advertising. Of course some of you don’t care. And you tend to look like racist in the meantime. Check this quote out from Will Bower, co-founder of the Just Say No Deal Coalition, a rabid Clinton Supporter. “I have been voting Democratic for 18 years. I only voted for Democrats, from dog catcher to president and everything in between. I will be voting for someone other than Barack Obama come November.”
You mean to tell me that Obama and Clinton’s policies proposals are that different? Can you be any more obvious?
