I'm back! I just had some Internet ownage today and I just had to, had to, had to share it with everybody. So the ABC affiliate in Columbus posted a link on FB about a woman who was accusing a TGI Friday's of intentionally tricking her into consuming pork by taking the bacon off her salad and putting it into her tea(the lady in question is a practioner of Islam). You can read the article here. A lovely young lady posted the following comment: Go back to your own country! Sorry but if "Under GOD" is not in your vocabulary... Continue reading

I'm already getting tired of people on Facebook talking about St. Valentine's Day(yeah, I'm gonna call you by your full name). Complaining about how they don't have a man/girl/boo thang/whatever to give them shit on St. Valentine's Day, and to me, that is such bullshit. We, as a society, have conditioned our women to expect gifts of extravegance on February 14th, or face the wrath of woman. Whatever happened to the days of giving a girl a Spider-Man valentine and a lollipop? Whatever happened to construction paper and glitter? Nah, you gotta give somebody some diamonds or no ass for...

People say that sticks and stones may break bones but words don't hurt. That's a blatant lie. Words, like any tools, are weapons if they belong in the right hands. To me, or probably any other Black person, there is one word that kills. It has been used to demean, disparage, dehumanize us for hundreds of years. I can literally count how many times I've been called a nigger to my face (7). Last night was just one of other times that I have. Last night, at my friend's birthday party, someone came in, took a full case of beer,... Continue reading

I was thinking about blogging about the ongoing NFL negotiations for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. I had facts, numbers, and research. Hell, I've read through a good chunk of the previous CBA numerous times. And then I got to thinking, everybody has an opinion about the collective barganing agreement and it's usually well formulated. Yet, at the same time, when it comes to things that really matter, like politics and policies, people are willing to be forcefed opinions by people who don't have their best interests at heart. For example, people spend three to four hours watching American Idol... Continue reading

This one goes way back in the way back machine. Back to 7th grade, 1999, where B2K was just starting out and Radio Disney was not populated by terrible music by Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers, but by terrible music by Britney Spears and boy bands (though they played that one song by Smash Mouth that I like for some reason). Scenario: Does everyone remember the movie "The Wood" with Omar Epps and that really dark black dude that nobody remembers anymore? It plays a big role in this story. Recall, where the main character in his teenage years... Continue reading

As the whole world knows, on Thursday, LeBron James decided to join Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh to play together in Miami. But we're not here to talk about the impact on Cleveland and this isn't a "F Lebron" rant. This is just a speculation on a purely basketball question, Can they make it work? Looking at the past, there aren't too many examples to look at as far as a team with 3 players in their prime who averaged at least 20 points a game. But the closest bets show that it can work, and they all happened not... Continue reading

It's now July, which means that sports have come to a grinding halt. The World Cup was a nice distraction, but after the US went out, my interest has waned. Baseball is in the middle of it's long, boring, drawn out season, and since the Cubs are losing, I have no interest in beating myself over the head with three hours of Alfonso Soriano swinging at every pitch thrown at him. Soccer that I would be interested in (the EPL season is only 1 month away!) is not on, and I've grown tired of the Summer of LeBron (which is... Continue reading

After being awakened yesterday by, um, well, let's say that I was awakened by some particular noises. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, and I would just get up and leave. But this particular day, I came home with an allergy attack, full with stuffy nose, headache, and an overall terrible feeling in general. After getting my mandatory hour of SSFIV in, I went to sleep, when I was woken up by the aforementioned activity. So I did the only thing I could think of not to get pissed and cockblock them; played a full hour of love songs after... Continue reading

Maybe we need to get him some CD9 genes. He'd be playing this weekend.
I concur wholeheartedly. It's not like we are Brazil or Spain or Portugal where our talent pool is so deep that there isn't much drop off between your bench and your starters. What we need off the bench are specialists, either a target guy or a speed guy. Because, most likely, Jozy will not be playing the whole game and one of the wingers(Dempsey or Donovan) will be moving up front, we will need a target forward so that Donovan/Dempsey can play off of him, which is why I would go with Casey
Guess who has two thumbs, is a United fan, and has many friends to stay with in Boston? This guy! I'm pumped!
Really, because JFT is a Mexican and gets call ups all the time. Hell, most of our pool are immigrants or the sons of immigrants, and technically, the entire pool has immigrants somewhere down the line, so if Bob were racist, then he wouldn't be able to pick a team. If he doesn't like Herc does or how he fits into his team, then he won't pick him. That being said, I do think Herc needs a look before the WC given his goalscoring form, something that no one else in the pool is doing right now for their clubs.
All thanks to Lando. They went on a helluva run when he showed up. Seems like he was the spark that they needed.
Davies should be back for the WC. And once he gets back up to fitness, he should be fine as far as athleticism is concerned. He only broke bones with no lasting ligament damage, so he should be as fast as ever. He will be rusty when it comes to finishing and things like that, but I'll be happy when I see CD9 coming off the bench for that first appearance back with the MNT
Last night, the health care reform bill was passed by a majority vote and is expected to be signed into law tomorrow by President Obama. As expected, every House Republican voted against the matter, but since the Dems have a majority, it passed. This opens up the opportunity for people around this country to have health insurance, which tends to drastically increase the life expectancy of Americans (For example, Canadians have a longer life span than Americans and have public health care. So do the Japanese, the Chinese, etc.). This also opens up a lot of debate as to whether... Continue reading

There are forwards out there who don't score many goals at all, but are seen as good players(Emile Heskey, Jones from Sunderland is another). The fact that Jozy's goal haul is very low doesn't speak against the type of player he is(or can become). Furthermore, the guy just turned 20. Consistency from a soccer player usually doesn't come until the mid 20s (unless you are a fantastic player). Yes, Jozy would benefit immensely from better service, but for what lot he has, it is doing fine.
Personally, I side with the players 100% and they should strike if their demands aren't met. Right now, MLS are the slave-masters and the players are their slaves(as it comes to transfers). It's a big time plantation mindset there. Why? Because unless MLS wants to sell you, you aren't going anywhere. Want a MLS player? Wait for a free transfer or you have to negotiate with MLS, not the club. It's ridiculous and completely against what happens in the rest of the world when it comes to soccer. (I'm African-American and I'm not making this a racial issue. I feel that the situation is akin to American slavery, except the players are getting paid).
Random negative comments about the MLS.

Once again, I've decided to grow out my hair (for now). Why? Well, 1)It won't necessarily hurt me for finding a job, seeing as all IT people look like freak shows for the most part 2)It cuts my hair cut budget big time 3)I want to change up my look again. It's been about two months since my last hair cut, so my fro is in what I call the "Mike Tomlin" stage. Not too long, not too short, but just beginning to see that an afro is about to form. (Seen here). Next month I will be in stage... Continue reading

Remember the days where the best football game out there required you zig-zagging around the field and mashing A until your fingers dislocated? Well, what if you said if somebody had a Tecmo Bowl with today's players? What if I told you that somebody is me? I am currently working on a ROM Hack of Tecmo Super Bowl III, updating it with today's teams. I hope to have everything done by the NFL Draft (in May) but next week, I will have a demo with 12 playable teams. Those teams are: Dallas New Orleans Minnesota Arizona Green Bay Philadelphia Cincinatti... Continue reading

Blackness to some people is how you act or how you talk or what music you listen to. But to me, blackness is who you are. You can't question someone's blackness because they don't wear certain clothes or they don't listen to rap or R&B or they don't hang out with a certain crowd. It took me a while to figure out that I didn't have to prove my blackness to anyone, but throughout my life, I've had to deal with things according to blackness. For those of you that don't know, I have a twin brother and we are... Continue reading

I'm running for President in 2012! That's right! Not that President Obama is doing a bad job(some people may disagree) but I feel like there are some things missing from his agenda that I think the American people need. If elected, I will put these things into effect. Here are my campaign promises: 1. Promise 1 free assault for all American citizens Haven't you ever just wanted to beat somebody's ass, but didn't want to do the time for assault? As President, I will give all Americans one "Whoop Yo Ass" card. With this WYA card, you can perform one... Continue reading
