Protege Sneakers - Al Harrington's $35 Kicks (DECENT)

You may have seen this new commercial for Protege sneakers during a basketball game or on ESPN recently.  This is Al Harrington's (New York Knicks) new shoe company.  Yes, you read that right. He isn't just a paid endorser.  He has ownership in the company.  It's a ballsy investment but if this works out well, he is going to be making some serious cash (as if he didn't already have a ton).

Al Harrington decided he wanted to put together an affordable, high quality and stylish line of athletic shoes because he couldn't always afford those $100 sneakers growing up.  He wanted to create an alternative to the expensive Nike, Adidas and Reebok basketball shoes for kids and parents.  Now he is selling his Protege line exclusively in KMart for just $35!!!  He landed endorsements from NBA players Stephen Jackson, Ron Artest and Mikael Pietrus as well.  That's a lot of crazy dudes for one sneaker company and not the most well known roster but it's a start.  If the shoes and company are successful, I'm sure many other higher profile athletes would consider Protege in the future.  
I think he really has something here, based on what I've seen and heard about the shoes.  I really like the designs and colorways and the quality of the material seems decent at first glance.  Their not too crazy and it's something you could expect to see from the more high profile shoe companies.  My brother and I saw the commercial for Protege a few weeks back and were like "Damn!  Only $35?!?!  Those are nice!"  If I need another pair of kicks to play ball in sometime soon, I would seriously consider a pair.
This isn't the first time a pro athlete has decided to create their own low cost shoe and apparel company.  Stephon Marbury created the Starbury line a couple of years ago which sells sneakers and apparel all under $20.  It's a great concept but many complained about the look and quality of the products.  As you can tell by the photo below, they are a little cheap looking and the style is something that needs to be improved.  It's still a great deal for families that are short on cash but I could see how a kid might feel embarrassed to rock these in public.   Hopefully he will have something that doesn't resemble a clown shoe when he joins the Celtics today.  Anything is an improvement on this horrific Orange and Blue Knick colorway.

Sick Dunks from 5'10" Haneef Munir - 540, Between the Legs Reverse (WOW)

Holy $h!t!  This dude can get up!!!  Are you kidding me?!?!  I freakin' love these Team Flight Brothers dunk clips.  Each one is better than the last.

Haneef Munir is only 5'10" but he is throwing down better dunks than almost anyone I have seen of any height.  My favorites were the between the legs reverse (I've never seen that before!), the 540 (sick!), the wrong way 360 and finally the HEAD ABOVE THE RIM WINDMILL!!!  I basically just pointed out ALL of his dunks but it's because they are all so ridiculous.  This dude is NICE!!!

Check the description from the video:
Well NBA Dunk Contest...Nate Robinson eat your heart out....No you will not see pushing off of someones head to jump over them, You will see a 5'10" kid by the name of Haneef aka Young Hollywood do some dunks that would have killed anyone in the NBA Dunk Contest.....Look out for Haneef in the future as one of the best in the world.

73 Year Old College Hoops Player Ruled Inelgible For Failing Spanish (CLASSIC)

I guess some things never change. No matter what your age is, learning Spanish can be a bitch!  Ken Mink, the 73 year old who played for the Roane State (Tennessee) junior college basketball team has been ruled academically ineligible by the NJCAA because of his inability to grasp the Spanish language and follow the rules on taking courses at another school.  Check it:

"His season was cut short by four games after being notified last week that the National Junior College Athletics Association had ruled him ineligible to play.  The NJCAA ruled that Mink had failed to receive proper permission to take a course from a school other than Roane State.  Mink had enrolled in a sociology course through Strayer University when he realized during the fall semester that he might fail a Spanish course.

He continued taking the Spanish course, though he didn't pass, and finished the semester with the NJCAA minimum 12 hours of credit that included the Strayer University sociology course.

Roane State was ordered to forfeit a game against Hiwassee, one in which Mink scored two points.

This not the first time Mink has been told he couldn't play college basketball. Fifty-two years ago, Mink was coming off a solid freshman season at tiny Lees College in Kentucky and eyeing a Division I scholarship.  But when the coach's office was "soaped" - shaving cream filled his shoes and covered the walls - Mink was accused.  He pleaded innocent but was expelled."

That's too bad.  This was a nice story and it seemed like he was fitting in with the team nicely.  As much as it sounds like a joke, the guy looks like he can actually ball a little bit.  Although he is super slow, he is still in decent shape and he looks much younger than 73.  He even scored 5 points this season which is pretty incredible.  Good luck to Ken Mink in whatever he decides to do for the rest of his life.  I hope I have that much energy and motivation when I am his age some day.

He's Back! - New Tiger Woods Nike Commercial (FUNNY)

I saw the new Tiger Woods Nike commercial today for the first time while watching SportsCenter and I thought it was great.  As much as it's a joke, I am sure most of the guys on Tour do actually feel this way now that Tiger Woods is back.

Their world has just been flipped upside down.  Instead of thinking they have a chance of winning every tournament, these guys are going to be worried about Tiger creeping up on them and stealing the win.  That's gotta suck.

This is kind of like MJ's return from baseball.  All of the other NBA stars were starting to get their shine and then Michael comes back and they all are quickly forgotten about.  Classic.  Maybe this tournament is Tiger's equivalent of MJ dropping 55 points on the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.  He was on point yesterday at the Accenture Match Play Championship starting off with birdie, then eagle on the first two holes on his way to a win in his first matchup against Brendan Jones.


Gabe Pruitt Arrested on DUI and C's Lose to Clippers (WEAK)

Gabe Pruitt Pictures, Images and Photos
What's the deal, Gabe?  Come on now.  You're better than this! is reporting that Gabe Pruitt was arrested for a DUI last night in LA after the Celtics lost to the Clippers:

Pruitt, a member of the Boston Celtics, was pulled over around 3:15 AM in the Hollywood area. Sources tell TMZ Pruitt failed a field sobriety test and had a blood alcohol level well over the legal limit.

He was taken to a local jail and booked on suspicion of driving under the influence. His bail was $5,000.

Pruitt, who went to college at USC in Los Angeles, scored three points last night in the Celtics' 93-91 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

What is he doing out until 3 AM after a game?  Don't they have some kind of curfew on the road?  He is from the LA area so I am sure he had a bunch of friends that took him out for some drinks which is OK but he needs to learn that you can't let your knucklehead friends bring you down.  He is only 22 years old, so he is still learning how to deal with his new found fame.  If you are going to go out drinking with your buddies and you are a professional athlete, you can either afford a limo/cab or you can talk one of your more sober friends into driving.  Just a dumb move to be driving home, even if he only had a few drinks.  Since he failed the sobriety test, I am sure he had a decent amount too.  If you are out on the road past 12 AM, you are just asking to be pulled over by 5-0.  

I feel bad for the kid because getting arrested for DUI sucks and is something that never gets erased from your record.  It will always be brought up throughout the rest of his career as a question about his intelligence and maturity.  Normal people get a DUI and have to deal with the typical garbage but can usually keep it DL.  When you are in the NBA, you end up on TMZ the next morning.  Yikes.

To make the situation worse, the Celtics lost to the crappy Clippers in a close game that they could have and should have won.  Pierce missed a jumper at the end that he usually hits but he f'd up his thumb earlier in the game and I am sure that affected him in some way.  Rondo had a chance to hit House for a three but he lost control of the ball out of bounds and the C's never even got a last attempt at winning the game.  WEAK!!!

Megan Fox Is HOT (and Finally Dumped Brian Austin Green)!

Megan Fox Pictures, Images and Photos
WTF was Megan Fox thinking getting engaged to Brian Austin Green?  Talk about the wash up of all wash ups (He's got some cool Air Force One's in the pic above though).  Thank God she finally came around and decided to dump him.  I'm assuming it was her that made this decision because I can't imagine Brian Austin Green is stupid enough to leave a chick that is this hot.

This dude must have some serious dough from all of the Beverly Hills 90210 reruns because he has no business scoring all of the hot ass he has pulled over the years.  He has dated Tiffany Amber Thiessen and Vanessa Marcil in the past and scammed Megan Fox into getting engaged.  Damn!  That is a sick lineup.

This story has no relevenace to anything because I could really care less about it but it is a great excuse to put up some photos of this fly shorty.  I've been in the zone this week with the hot chick posts!

Celtics Land Stephon Marbury and Mikki Moore (SOLID)

If you follow hoops then you have probably heard rumors for about 2 months now(!!!) that the Boston Celtics were considering signing Stephon Marbury if his contract was ever bought out by the Knicks.  It has finally happened and Marbury should be signed by the Celtics as early as Friday.  Nice!
For some reason, Marbury did not see eye to eye with new Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni or GM Donnie Walsh so he chose to sit the entire season and has not played in an NBA game in over a year.  Even before these new guys came on board, Marbury was already starting to fall out of favor with the Knicks organization and fans because of his attitude and selfish play.  I don't know what happened to the dude but he has been a little on the crazy side these past few years.  There have been a ton of interviews with him acting all crazy talking about wanting to play in Italy or answering his cellphone while on live TV and strange things like that.  He even got a tattoo of his Starbury brand on the side of his head.  Good branding but weird.  That's Mike Tyson level crazy!!!  
My take on this whole situation is that it's worth the risk for the Celtics.  His huge contract will be handled by the Knicks so the Celtics can just sign him for the veterans minimum (I believe) pro-rated for the rest of the season.  If he messes up and causes chemistry problems or just isn't the player he once was then the Celtics can cut him and not be out too much money.  It's going to be an experiment but it could work.  Even though it's a big risk, the potential payoff seems pretty huge.

If he shows even a flash of his former self, he will help this team compete for a title once again.  All he has to do is come in and run the point on the second team and fill in for Rondo when he is in foul trouble or having a bad night.  It will be nice to have a real PG on the second squad so that Eddie House can move to his more comfortable position of SG and get open for threes more easily.

When he does play with any combination of the Big 3, I think he will quickly realize that he has some big guns to feed the ball to and won't be so worried about getting his shots or points.  The Knicks have been a joke for the past few years and they were working with a me first attitude which Marbury got caught up in.  If he actually has some real scoring options like Garnett, Allen and Pierce, I see no reason why he wouldn't love setting the table for those guys and showing he can still play in this league.  He has to like it or he is done

The Big 3 are all strong and vocal veterans so there is no way they are going to allow Marbury to act like a clown and mess up their chemistry and hard work from over the past 2 seasons.  I think he will get that and will understand this may be his only shot at getting a championship.  This might also be his only shot at landing a new contract for the future because if he messes this up, he will probably be out of the league soon.  Most teams are questioning his mental status and basketball abilities.  He doesn't need much more motivation than that.

Garnett and Marbury played together in Minnesota and they were a dynamic duo early in their careers.  Marbury was young and stupid and got jealous at Garnett's humongous $100+ million contract and felt he was worth the same money, if not more.  When the Timberwolves did not want to pay him, he decided it would be best to leave town.  Dumb move.  He probably realizes by now that he really messed up a bad thing and should have never left.  Those two could have been the building block for a championship team for years had he stayed with KG and Minnesota.

Garnett is one of the more vocal guys in the league and I am sure he will get in Marbury's ear when it is needed.  They were best friends back in the day and this will be the perfect opportunity to reconcile that relationship by working together to win a championship like they were supposed to do almost a decade ago.  
In less dramatic news, the Celtics also signed F Mikki Moore.  He is a solid veteran that can help fill some holes and can provide some much needed height down low.  The guy is a hustler and can score in bunches.  His defense is lacking but he defintiely works hard and can create a lot of charges.  I think he will fit in perfectly with this team and he will surprise a lot of people that probably have never heard of him.  He's not bad at all. 
The one disturbing thing about him is that when I did a search for some pictures of him, 3 of the first 10 photos were of him holding a snake.  That's a little weird but I can deal with it.  Everyone has their quirks.  Just get the job done on the floor and I'm happy.   Tommy Heinson is going to LOVE this guy too.  I guarantee it.
The C's are looking good for the stretch run to the playoffs and beyond.  I definitely like their chances for the title once again.  I am starting to get all fired up again.


Nate Robinson is a (tiny) BEAST! (DUNKS)

Nate Robinson has been absolutely tearing up the L ever since he won the Slam Dunk Contest during All Star Weekend a few weeks ago.  I have to admit that I never thought the little guy would be much and would only be known as a dunker but he has turned into a pretty good all around player this season.  His defense is still suspect but it's gotta be tough covering dudes that are 6'0" plus when you are only 5'8" (at best).

Check out the video above.  He scored 41 points against the Indiana Pacers and dropped 32 in the second half.  He was on fire and had Will Ferrell whooping it up for him in the front row.  Robinson went over and gave him a pound after a big shot and then hugged it out after the game.  There's some weird man love going on here.  Check out his Ricky Bobby "Shake and Bake" quote in a post game interview:
Nate also presented Ferrell with a signed green KryptoNate jersey he wore in winning the Slam-Dunk competition after the game as well.  WTF?!?!  Are they dating or something?  That's just weird.

Now Little Dude is throwing down sick alley oop dunks IN GAME like it ain't no thang.  It seems like Nate Robinson is jumping even higher than before if that is even possible. This type of ish is ridiculous for someone  5'8".  You gotta love his hops.

NBA Round Up - Random Ish From the Week

Dwight Howard shows that he is still wears that Superman shirt underneath his jersey.  These halfcourt shots are pretty impressive.  Too bad he can't hit a freakin' free throw in a game.
In this same game against the Magic, Dwayne Wade scored 50 pts. but the Heat still lost by 23 points.  Yikes
This was a sick off the backboard alley oop from Earl Watson to Russell Westbrook who then teabags some dude on the Warriors.  I really wish Westbrook was in the Dunk Contest instead of Rudy Fernandez this year.  I think he would have been more exciting and could have competed for the top spot.  Dude has serious hops.
This one is a classic.  LeBron James blatantly farts as he walks back to the bench and Anderson Varejao catches a whiff and almost throws up.  LeBron then chuckles and grins without even trying to deny it was him.  HA HA!!!

Victoria Secret Model Adriana Lima Marries NBA Clown Marko Jaric (BOO!)

Speaking of Hot Chicks, one of the hottest of them all, Victoria Secret model Adriana Lima, decided to tie the knot with NBA vagabond Marko Jaric on Valentine's Day.  Wow.  This is a sad day for all of the horny men that steal their girlfriend's/wives Victoria Secret catalogs out of the mail before their girl gets a chance to check it out.  Not that I know anything about that.  I've just heard that's what guys do and stuff... 
It's just not the same thumbing through that catalog knowing that she is married to this clown.  I guess he's not the ugliest dude in the world but he is also not even close to being an NBA star.  He had some potential when he was a rookie and has bounced around from team to team ever since.  He signed one big contract based on potential and now he is basically non-existent.  I had to look it up to realize he was on the Memphis Grizzlies currently.  He is averaging 1.9 PPG and 1.1 Assists in 28 games this season.  Yikes.

Check out this sweet pic too.  He's like the white Richard Hamilton with that awful face mask except he sucks even worse!  Oh ya, and Richard Hamilton is a better player too:
I guess it goes to show you what a couple million dollars will do for your game.  And I'm talking about your pimp game because obviously his hoops game is straight garbage these days.  If I was dating/married to Adriana Lima, I would probably be fairly unmotivated to go to practice everyday and would start to suck too.  I get it dude.  It's OK.  You win.  You might as well retire because you've got it made, son! 

This is post is also a great excuse to put up some pics of this fine young lady for your viewing pleasure.  The home page is just filled with booty today!  Nice.

Janessa Brazil - Miss Howard TV March 09 (SMOKIN'!!!)

This fine ass chick you see above is Janessa Brazil.  She was on the Howard Stern show this morning and she SOUNDED hot as hell, especially after that Sybian ride.  I immediately went digging for some pics to see if she was the real deal.  Thank God I was able to find some (since never updates as quickly as needed) because she is even hotter than expected.  The guys on the show always get all horned up and exaggerate the hotness of some of these chicks on the show but Janessa Brazil is fly as shit!  It's gotta be the Brazilian roots.  I think I have maybe seen 2 ugly Brazilian girls in my entire life and they usually work at Dunkin' Donuts.  Even some of them are hot!
Check out for some NSFW links.  I won't even be able to check them out until I leave work for the day but I am sure I will not be disappointed.  FIRE!
UPDATE:  Here are the pics from the Howard Stern Show yesterday.  Wow.  This chick is so F'n HOT!!!

Devin Harris' Half Court Buzzer Beating Winner vs. Sixers (SICK!)

WOW!  What an incredible game winning shot.  I caught this clip of Devin Harris' buzzer beater against the Sixers on SportsCenter this morning during the Top 10 plays of the night segment.  I thought it was just to end the half or a quarter.  I didn't realize it was a game winner!  Unreal.

At first glance, it looks like he travels too but the slow mo replay shows that he loses the ball, gathers it again in one motion, takes one quick step and then puts up a ridiculous shot to win the game.  This might be the best shot of the year so far and may be one of the best buzzer beaters in recent NBA history.  SICK!

"Low Budget" - Wax and Herbal T (Creative Music Video)

Now this is what you call CREATIVITY!  I think 90% of you rappers out there should take notes on this rap video "Low Budget" by Wax and Herbal T.  This is how you make something out of nothing.  This proves that you can make a great song without the need to hire the hottest producer or writers.  If you make good music, people will eventually find it.  I guarantee this video will blow up quite a bit in the next few weeks as it makes the rounds.

I love that these dudes made the beat by using "dumb shit (from) around the house" and it came out tight as hell!  The rhymes were on point too and the second rapper (don't know his name yet) crushed it.  It's not like this is the first time a song like this has ever been done but this was almost perfect execution.  I will definitely be on the lookout for other songs from these guys if they continue to bring the unique styles.  Dope! 

Ben Stiller Imitates Joaquin Phoenix at the Oscars (FUNNY)

I didn't watch the Oscar's last night because that shit is wack but I heard about Ben Stiller's imitation of Joaquin Phoenix's weird ass appearance from the David Letterman show so I had to find the clip.  This is actually pretty good.  Stiller has the drugged out mannerism's and weird mumbling speech down to a T.  If this was the funniest thing that happened last night though, I'm glad I didn't waste my time watching it.  That's what YouTube is for...

Here's the original video of Joaquin Phoenix on The David Letterman Show.  Dude is tapped.  This is either a perfect Andy Kaufman imitation and he is fooling everyone or he is losing his mind, on some hardcore drugs and needs some help.  I'll take door number 2.  He also claims he is coming out with a rap album.  Yikes.  Can't wait for that one.  It seems like he is trying to channel his inner Matisyahu or something....
Alec Baldwin also did a nice imitation of Joaquin on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Joaqun is getting worked by all the big guys!  OWNED.

Garnett Disses Craig Sager's Suit...Again (OWNED)

If you're an NBA fan, you probably know that Kevin Garnett likes to give TNT's Craig Sager an earful about his ridiculously awful suits every time he gets interviewed.  Obviously he puts these hideous collections on purpose to get attention and air time (it works) but it never keeps the NBA stars like Shaq and Garnett from saying something funny.  They work this dude hard!  

This one is by far one of Craig Sager's worst looks to date.  I don't even know where you would find such a hideous combination of clothing; a pink jacket, a pink and white striped collared shirt, a blue tie with red polka dots and red pants, socks and shoes.  WTF?!?!?  As Garnett rightfully said "Take this outfit home and BURN IT!"

I posted this video of KG working over Sager last year and it has received over 350K views and a ton of comments.  Everyone loves it when Craig catches a verbal beat down.  OWNED!!!
Here are some more examples of Craig Sager's Ugly Suits. Wow.

TNT's All-Star Dance Off: Kenny Smith vs. Gary Payton (FUNNY)

I don't know if the actual Dance Off ever actually happened but this is good enough for me.  I am laughing my ass off right now.  Forget Barkley's shenanigans.  Chris Webber and Gary Payton are freakin' hysterical.

I knew GP and Kenny were talking smack to each other a few weeks back and were going to have a dance off during All Star Weekend but I didn't know what came of it since I couldn't find anything on YouTube.  If there wasn't an official contest, this "Chair Dance Off" will do.  It's pretty damn funny but Chris Webber's reaction (and beatboxing!) is what makes this a classic.  Ernie (the white guy host) is just sitting there clueless and goofy and wants to say something but he knows that if he opens his mouth, he is going to get clowned by these guys.  So good!

This is how it all started:

Random iPod Track of the Week - The Beatnuts ft. Big Pun and Cuban Link "Off The Books"

I got all fired up when I heard "Off The Books" bump on the system this morning on the way to work.  This is such a nasty track and has to be one of Big Pun's best rhymes of all time.  Dude is just on point and slices the beat like a razor.  Check this:

Big Pun:
Hey yo it's all love, but love's got a thin line
and Pun's got a big nine, respect crime but not when it reflect mine
The shit I'm on is wrong but it lasts long
Pull a fast one, then Pun'll wake up, with the stash gone
I'm mad strong, and my cream is fast
Smoke the greenest grass, my bitch got the meanest ass
and a taste legit, I don't have to waste a whole case of Crist'
All it takes is my pretty face and my gangsta wit
Lace the click, cause we all share
It's all fair like love and war, thug galore with the long hair
Big Pun, Pun the name that makes the kids run
Like spelling murder reverse it deliver redrum
Come one, come all, if you wanna brawl
I'm the mighty Thor clotheslining motherfuckers like Steven Segall
Cause all you gonna get, is your ass kicked or up in a casket
That's it (that's it?) That's it

SICK!!!!  Everyone stepped up their lyrical game on this track but it's the beat that makes it so good.  The Beatnuts are one of most underrated beatmakers/producers in the Hip Hop game and are slept on quite a bit.  I haven't heard from them in awhile so I don't know what they are up to but I am sure Juju and Psycho Les are making dope beats for someone out there.  They are too good to let that talent go to waste. 

I have most, if not all of their albums and every single track has a dope beat and/or a crazy sample that will get your head noddin'.  If you pay close enough attention, you can hear them sampling Sesame Street, kids records and some other crazy shit.  They are crazy!  Cop some old Beatnuts albums if you want to hear some real Hip Hop.  You won't be disappointed.

Kanye West is Dating This Bald Model Chick, Amber Rose? (HOT?)

Wow.  There's a lot going on here.  So word on the street is that Kanye West is dating this bald model chick, Amber Rose.  I can get past her ridiculous outfit since everyone in LA tries to outdo each other these days but I can't deal with the whiffle/fade that she's rockin'.  WTF is that?  You're supposed to be able to run your hands through a chicks hair, not feel like you just touched a nap brush to clean up your dirty Timberlands.  Not sexy.

And what is the deal with Kanye's Black Mullet?  He's starting to look like Lionel Ritchie circa 1982.  That thing is getting out of control!!!  What can we call that thing anyway?  I would suggest "The Bullet" but I like to use that for bald guys rockin' the mullet or pony tail.  Can we just call it the Kullet?  Or maybe the Wullet (pronounced Wool-ay)?

Kanyeezy is losing his f'n mind.  The jean jacket, sweater and bow tie combo is just out of control.  It's like he's going out of his way to look stupid.  You win, bro.  You are officially the weirdest dude around.  Please just come back to earth and make a rap album again.
As I dig into this random ass story a little further, I have to admit that this Amber Rose chick is sneaky hot.  You can tell she's got a dope body and a pretty face in the pictures above but they do not do her justice.  Check out these pics that I was able to dig up below.  Damn son!

Nasty Block/Foul by Lakers Shannon Brown on Mario West (SICK!)

Woah!  I didn't know Shannon Brown could get up like this.  Yes, they called it a foul but it was still impressive and an insane display of athletic ability.  I can't believe the ref called this to be honest.  I see much more contact than this on a regular basis without even a hint of a foul call.  When someone does something this nasty, you just have to let it go sometimes.  West just fell to the ground to get the call (in my opinion) and it looked like it worked.  He still didn't avoid embarrasment though.  OWNED!!!

T.I. Ft. Justin Timberlake - "Dead and Gone" (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

As usual, YouTube and Atlantic Records are A-holes and made it impossible to find this video without it being muted or disabling the embed feature. WTF!?!? I am trying to promote your damn video/song here!!! Ridiculous.

Anyway, I finally found the new video for T.I's "Dead and Gone" video featuring Justin Timberlake on iMeem and the shit is dope. It's a cool and simple concept that works with the lyrics and flow of the song.

This is definitely my favorite song out right now, hands down. It's been getting crushed by repetitive radio play lately and it will soon be "that song" but I'm just not sick of it yet and I don't think I will be any time soon. It's just a good ass song and it actually has some meaning and thought behind it for once.  T.I. kills it with the lyrics and JT finishes it off with the catchy hook.  If you aren't singing along with this song after the first few listens, then you've got problems. 

When I first bought this album, I played it for the Pre-Wife and told her it would be a hit because it was that good and would be released as a single soon enough. She didn't believe me but about two months later, it was on the radio and has been played non-stop since. That's why I get paid the big, why I am a DJ.

Insane High School Basketball Fight in Alabama (YIKES)

WOW!.  This is F'n INSANE!!!  This fight occurred yesterday between G.W. Carver and Valley in Montgomery Alabama during what I believe is their state tournament.  The game was called with 6:23 left after the floor was cleared and Valley forfeited because they did not have enough players and probably because there is no way in hell that the madness would come to an end if they continued the game.

I got a little freaked out just watching this on my computer.  I can't imagine what it must have been like if you were actually in the stands at the game.  This is absolutely ridiculous.  I was expecting one of the Goons that came running out of the stands to pull out a gun or knife.  They were just looking for a reason to join in on this melee.  I still can't get over how intense this fight was on the floor and just when you thought it was over, it started in the stands with parents and fans.  WTF?!?!  Usually you see a fight between the players but people coming out of the stands to join in is definitely a newer occurrence.  Just complete ignorance all around.

It sounds like the refs did not have control over this game because both teams were starting to get chippy because of the lack of hard fouls being called.  That is no excuse for what ensued but I can understand it to a degree.  I have been in plenty of games where there was a complete lack of calls being made and it just got everyone all fired up to the point that there was a fight or the game was called before it elevated even further.

I don't understand why refs can't see this as it's happening and just calm everyone down.  The only thing they have to do is just make a few extra calls to show that they are in control.  If you let things get too physical, shit just gets hectic.  When someone gets tackled and there is no foul called, it just puts more fuel on the fire.  

Johnny Damon is an Idiot - Murder is Worse Than Steroids (HA HA)

I always thought Johnny Damon was a complete moron when he played for the Red Sox but for some reason I am noticing his stupidity even more now that he is a Yankee. Why does this dude insist on getting in front of the camera and opening his mouth? He might be the dumbest guy in Major League Baseball. And to top it all off, he throws like a girl and talks with an awful lisp. What a TOOL.

This clip is absolutely fantastic for the following reasons:
- He claims A-Rod hasn't committed a crime (Actually he has.  Importing illegal drugs from another country is a crime).
- He has known Alex since he was 15 years old and he is a nice guy (Because he is nice to you, that means he wouldn't do such a thing as use steroids?!?!  Nice logic, DUMMY!)
- Hannah Storm asked Damon what was worse than using steroids.  His response was "Murder".  He then proceeded to stutter for 10 more seconds trying to think of another example but couldn't.  (WTF!!  HA HA)

And nice freakin' hair buddy.  I hope to God your wife didn't tell you that was a good look.  You are starting to resemble the Guido Beach clowns from New Jersey.  I guess you just adapt to your environment like a really slow chameleon.  The Unfrozen Caveman style served you a lot better.  At least then you had an excuse for being so F'n stupid.  
This interview below from WFAN the other day is almost as good.  The two awesome quotes that he did not even mean to be a joke were:

"I'm Not walking into a bathroom stall with Another Man - I don't believe in that." 

"Maybe some other guys want to do that kind of stuff, but I'm not getting into a bathroom stall with anyone."

Johnny Damon just sucks at life.  I kind of feel bad for him at times until I realize that he is a hell of a lot richer than I will ever be and is living the good life.  Doh!!!  I guess I suck now...

Kanye West ft. Kid Cudi - "Welcome to Heartbreak" (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

This is the sick new video from Kanye West (ft. Kid Cudi) for his new single "Welcome to Heartbreak" from 808's and Heartbreak. Don't freak out. There is nothing wrong with the video or your internet connection. It is supposed to look all pixelated, f'd up and tripped out. I bet you this would be cool as hell to watch if you were a little tipsy or stoned out of your mind.

I definitely like the video and appreciate the creativity. It's a little weird but it's different and original. It's tough to come up with a video concept that hasn't already been done these days. It seems to fit perfectly with the track as well. I also think "Welcome to Heartbreak" is one of the hidden gems on the album. I totally forgot about this track until I saw this video but I like it a lot. I think the video added to the appeal for me. Dope!

Celtics Kicks - ASG Edition (Garnett, Pierce and Allen)

It took me FOREVER to find some pics of the Big Three's kicks from the All Star Game but I finally found some that were decent after digging in the crates for awhile.  A few of these are repetitive but it's the best I could do.  They must gotten pissed off having to take the same type of picture over and over again! 

Paul Pierce is rockin' the Nike Air Max P2 V in the All Star Game colorway, Kevin Garnett has the Adidas TS Bounce Commander in Silver and Ray Allen is wearing the Air Jordan 2009 in ASG colors.  All of them are pretty cool but I'm not sure any are tops on my "Gotta Have" list.  Not bad though.
Pierce's Nike Air Max P2 V was probably the hardest to find in the bunch.  I don't think they got much pre-ASG shine like the other signature kicks because the P2 V are not sold in adult sizes and therefore Nike had little reason to promote them.  All of the blogs had pics of Ray's Air Jordan 2009 and KG's Adidas TS Bounce Commander weeks before they were even worn by the players.  That was annoying. 
I also thought it was very cool of the NBA to bring out a 75th Birthday cake for Bill Russell to celebrate with the Big 3.  Props go out to one of the best players in Celtic and NBA history.
