Kobe’s MVP gifts to teammates update

Well, he’s no Tom Brady yet. Check this out… last night TB presented some of his offensive linemen with new cars! I’m sure there is more to this than the headline, but really I don’t feel like doing the checking. But he gave millionaires cars… what is that all about?

Tom Brady seems like a pretty cool cat, unless you are his baby mama. Maybe not a sit and drink a beer with you kind of guy like Brett Favre, but I would definitely wing-man with that cat with a couple of kettle tonics and see what kind of ladies we can pull. We know what kind of ladies he can pull, but yeah, lets just say that I don’t hang with a bunch of Tom Brady’s.

Where was all this when Donovan and the Eagles lost a heart breaker in the Superbowl? Is everything this guy does made for TV?

This is your Superbowl Match Up

January 14, 2008 Leave a comment


Ok the Superbowl has been set. Well, maybe not just yet, but yeah…. Someone explain to me how this match-up is not going to happen? Tom Brady and the Pats took care of business at home against a team that pretty much everyone thought would give them a good game. Brett Favre and the Packers waxed Seattle’s ass in the snow, and kept alive the biggest Superbowl story line in ages. Can you imagine how big of a story this will be, Favre in what could be his final year, attempting to take down what could be considered the greatest team in NFL history, attempting to go 19-0. San Diego might have a chance this week if everyone is healthy, but karma is a bitch and all that crying and complaining that San Diego does is going to catch up to them again. Eli and the Giants could have a chance this week, but the reality is that they are playing with house money at this point. I’m excited just thinking about it really.

According to the Associated Press, OJ has been taken into custody AGAIN!

LAS VEGAS (AP) — O.J. Simpson is in custody in Florida and will be brought before a judge next week on allegations that he violated terms of his release on bail in a Las Vegas armed robbery case, a court official said.

A hearing was scheduled Wednesday at the request of Clark County District Attorney David Roger, who was filing a motion Friday to revoke Simpson’s bail, according to a clerk for District Court Judge Jackie Glass.

Regardless of how you feel about the “OJ Simpson Murder Case” you have got to be fed up with OJ. If you accept that fact that he literally got away with murder, why not just live off your pension and be easy. I just don’t get it really.

23 months for a few dogs!?!

December 11, 2007 1 comment


“23 months for a few dogs” was a text message that I received from a friend of mine after he heard about the Mike Vick ruling. At first glance i chuckled but then thought, hmmm how many people will think and will say something just like that. I am sure a lot of MV supporters at least. I am not one of those people, a MV supporter, or a person that thinks he should have gotten 23 months for dog fighting.

But I don’t think he got 23 months for “just” dog fighting. He got one month less than the maximum allowed for all the other shit that has gone on since he pleaded guilty to the charges. In this recap by Lester Munson on, he speaks to how MV is being punished because,

…In addition to the deception on drugs and executions, federal prosecutor Michael Gill explained that Vick “had made a calculated effort to hide the truth” on four other issues in interviews with federal agents.

So yeah, maybe this all started with the 40+ dogs found on his property, but as time has gone on there has been a continual effort to basically stick his middle finger at the judicial system, and he is now paying for it. The Atlanta Journal Constitution has calculated that MV has lost about $142m in income over all of this, which is a lot of effing money. Then after you think , damn that is a lot of money, you realize that after you think about hundreds of millions you still can’t put a price on your freedom. Because after his 23 months, he still will have some “closely monitored probation” to deal with. On some level you feel sorry for the him, him being made the poster child with this prosecution, but on the other hand you have to say that he knew the rules and he chose to break them. It would be naive to think that the number of dogs involved through out this operation could not have easily been in the thousands. The law states something to the effect that you can’t take any evidence into consideration that is not presented as fact, but I think that this isn’t even about the dogs anymore; at this point it is his character that is being prosecuted. And not just Mike Vick by himself, but the so called “overpaid athlete.”I am sure there is a choice to believe that he, as well as all athletes, have plenty of narcissism and and huge egos that lead them to believe that they are above the law. On his part there was definitely some disbelief that all this isn’t really going to get me in jail, and this really can’t happen to him because he is Mike Vick, the man who revolutionized the quarterbacking position, but it was and it did. I just hope that he can find some time and a way to stay out of trouble, get his head right, keep himself clean, head down, do his time and get the hell out of there with his dignity.
