It's All Starting to Come Together...

(They ALL look crazy!)

I was on my hiatus during the time that Sean Taylor was killed/buried. My thoughts on the situation are really no different than every one else's. What happened was wrong on so many levels. I'm only 25 years old but I can remember being 17 (the age of the youngest person involved) like yesterday! At that age, I was more determined to find out how I could BE the millionaire insted of finding out how I could rob him. It's so sad that the mentality of today's youth is take it, not earn it. MOVING ON...
Here are a few newly released facts (I'm assuming it's factual) from what went down that night:
  • The gun that killed Sean Taylor was placed in a sock and thrown into the Everglades, an attorney for one of the suspects said
  • of the suspects said the football star kept $200,000 in a black bag in one of the bedrooms
  • They climbed over a fence and broke into a bathroom near the pool with a crowbar. Rivera, 17, and Mitchell, 19, went inside. Minutes later Mitchell ran out claiming he heard a noise...
  • Rivera persuaded Mitchell to go back inside. A few minutes later, Hunte, 20, heard a gunshot and then a scream inside the house. Mitchell and Rivera came running out and the group left in the car
  • Once in Fort Myers, Mitchell and Rivera burned their clothes and masks

I'm No T.O Fan, But...

I can't deny that his body is crazy amazing!!!! Check him out in the newest edition of Muscle & Fitness.

He He He


If you watched Mayweather, Hatton 24/7 (like I did) leading up to their Dec. 8 fight, you'd know that Floyd Mayweather used the term "midget" several times when referring to Ricky Hatton. Apparently, he pissed off the Little People of America who told him to "watch his big mouth." Well, Floyd and nem (nem being the LPA) have squashed their beef and fortunately for Floyd they won't be facing off in a ring anytime soon. He's photographed above partying with some "Little People" after forming a truce!


Bill Parcells signed a four-year contract with the Miami Dolphins to become the team's executive vice president of football operations. The move was swift and somewhat surprising. Parcells was on the cusp of accepting a job to rebuild the Atlanta Falcons, then rebuked them Wednesday afternoon -- having apparently struck a deal with Miami. (ESPN)

Did I mention that the Dolphins are 1-13 this season?

Let it GO!!!

After five Falcon's players were fined for demonstrating support for Mike Vick during a game, two players are appealing their 10K fines. Alge Crumpler wore the message "MV-7," on his eye-black patches for the game, and Roddy White pulled up his game jersey to unveil a T-shirt that read "Free Mike Vick" after a 33-yard TD catch in their December 10 loss to the Saints. I say just pay the money and let it go. They had to know that there was a chance that some action would be taken by the NFL. Besides, is a "Free Mike Vick" t-shirt really gonna free him??

Alonzo Mourning Done??

Let me just start by saying that he's 37 years old so it's about that time anyway...On Wednesday, Zo Mo tore the patellar tendon in his right knee during their matchup with the Hawks. Following his injury he was placed on a stretcher, but (being the warrior that he is) refused the ride saying,

"That's not the way I envisioned myself walking off the court for the last time in my career. I've been through so much in my life. If I had to crawl off the court I would have. Nobody was going to push me off on a stretcher off the court. That wasn't going to happen."

Those injuries usually take at least three months to heal, but Zo has been quoted as saying that there's "zero chance" of him playing another season. I guess we'll see!

Tony Parker Will Sue You!!

Before you go around accusing Tony Parker of being a cheater, you'd better be prepared for some legal repercussions. T.Peezy filed a $20 million lawsuit against photo agency X17 over a story claiming that he stepped out on Eva with some French model (actually Alexandra Paressant is her name). X17 felt confident enough to even post the story because she personally told them about the "affair" claiming that they began their relationship just TWO MONTHS after he and Eva's wedding(where she was in attendance might I add). She also supposedly revealed intimate details about Eva and Tony's love life based on conversations they shared. This chick is obviously out to destroy their marriage.

**Spicy's word of advice: Married people, be really careful about who you "befriend."**

I'M COMING BACK!!! I Promise...

I know I've been on somewhat of a hiatus (I think that's how you spell that, lol), but I'll be returning shortly. There has been soooooooo much going on in sports and I hate that I haven't been able to 'talk about it' BUT nevertheless, I'll be back full throttle real soon...

**and no SJH, I'm not on maternity leave w/D.Wade's baby (LMAO!!!)**

HOLLA!!! SpicySalsa,

Atlanta Gets WNBA Team...

Atlanta has been chosen to host a WNBA expansion team in 2008. The Atlanta franchise, which will choose a name, logo, colors and head coach at a later date, is the sixth WNBA team to be independently owned and operated. With that addition, the WNBA will feature 14 teams! I feel like I should be getting paid for this! I've beeeeen saying that Atlanta should have a WNBA team for the longest!!!! Hopefully they'll be more exciting to watch than the Hawks. Since it only costs $25 to sit courtside at WNBA games, I think I'll be getting season tickets :)~

Oh HELL Naw!!!!!!!!!!!

Will you just look at Shawn Merriman pouring champagne on some random chick at the club! Ol' girl seems to be enjoying herself. WTF ever! I'm a black girl and the myth about us going from lamb to lion about our hair is true!!! I swear I would've lost my mind if that negro decided to overturn a bottle on my head!! This would be big news if I had been involved b/c I would've acted a damn fool on Shawn Merriman!!

High School Removes Vick's Jersey...

Mike Vick's old high school removed his jersey from the gym. The principal decided to remove it after his guilty plea. I think that I'm the only person in the world who feels like Michael Vick isn't the worse person in the world right now so I won't go into why I think that removing his jersey is unecessary. But I'm also the chick who graduated from a school that proudly displays the jersey of a former football player who made it to the league only to serve time for drug trafficking where he still remains...

Ya'll Vote for Floyd!!!

I don't know if ya'll have been watching Dancing With the Stars, but last night Floyd was in the bottom two and you can tell that he was NOT happy!! The look on his face during last night's results show was (to me) a look of disappointment or perhaps frustration, even though a lot of people viewed it as him being cocky, arrogant, and having a bad attitude. Read some of the comments from the DWTS message board:

...your attitude stinks you should not act that way in front of fans you are there to have fun and everyone is there to learn and take what the judges say so you need to watch your face expersion

... Floyd have lost my votes for the rest of the season. I will not vote for him again no matter how well he dance in the following weeks. He have a serious attitude problem.

...Just poor sportsmanship.

...hope everyone noticed (how could you NOT) and no one vote for him. This show is as much about charisma and personality as it is about dancing. He is a medicre dancer at best and scores zero in the others. He needs to go. I hope he doesn't get one single vote.

They were clowin' Floyd!! I felt bad b/c I've voted for him every week and this week I didn't vote :( If you haven't been watching you wouldn't know that Floyd is extremely entertaining and dances his ass off every week. However he's failed to score higher than a 21!! I think he's had a great attitude despite the judge's scores and last night I viewed his demeanor as disappointment. He's been a great sport every week by complimenting the other contestants and etc. so for people to try to make him out to be an asshole just b/c he showed human emotion last night is contradictory to the way he's been on the show so far! Make sure to vote for him (!! You get like 11 votes online...give him all 11!!!!

Liar, Liar Pants On Fire!!!

Marion Jones pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court on Friday to two counts of lying to federal investigators and admitted taking steroids before the Sydney Olympics in 2000. She is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 11, and sentencing guidelines call for her to receive up to six months in jail. Everybody knows that she strongly denied ever using any performance enhancing drugs during her career. Yesterday she admitted that it was all a lie, cried, and retired. To add to it all, the U.S. Olympic Committee announced that they want her five (3 golds, 2 bronze) medals back. My advice to her is to do what all celebrities on the downside of their careers do...write a book.

Give It Up O.J.!!

O.J. might as well give Fred Goldman his SSN so he can claim him on his income taxes. A judge ruled that O.J. must hand over a Rolex watch and other assets to Goldman. Any future royalties from a sports video game featuring Simpson also must be delivered to Goldman as well. Simpson must also surrender any of the disputed memorabilia items recently seized by Las Vegas authorities that are found to be legally his. The items would then be auctioned by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and the money they bring in given to Goldman. Being O.J. has to suck!!

What A Comeup!!!

I hadn't really been keeping up with the California Raisin Isiah Thomas sexual harassment trial. I do know that it's over now, and the jury ordered $11.6 million be paid to the former team executive who "endured crude insults and unwanted advances" from Isiah!! Before being fired, she made $260,000/year (so I'm sure she was never broke), but now she really doesn't need to ever work again so I consider this a major comeup!! Don't spend it all in once place chica!! And Isiah should know can't just go around sexually harrassing women all willy nilly!!

If This I True Then I DEFINITELY Understand...

I wasn't mad at the idea of Shaunie stashing away a couple mill for a rainy day. Nothing about her doing that seemed shady. If anyone thought that she was on some triflin, gold digger type shit check this out...

According to a person close to Shaunie, once she found out that Shaq was planning on leave her for his pregnant girlfriend - she began stashing away the family money. "Shaunie [took] 9 million dollars from Shaq once she found out that he had indeed had an affair and gotten another woman pregnant."

And that's not the best part. Word is that Shaunie was entitled to substantially less than $9 million under the prenuptial agreement that she signed before the wedding. (MTO)
I'on know if that's true or not, but if it is who can blame her? If Shaq indeed has a chick pregnant, and Shaunie was not even entitled to $9 mil if they divorced, his ass needs to just be happy that she didn't take more than that! I would've been auctioning off his Championship rings, LSU jersey, and our 4 children!

Give Him a Break!!!

Talk about kicking a man when he's down. Michael Vick now faces two state charges that could get him more prison time if he's convicted....He faces state charges of beating or killing or causing dogs to fight other dogs and engaging in or promoting dogfighting. Each felony is punishable by up to five years in prison. Arraignments are set for Oct. 3. I know that this topic has been over discussed, but can Mike Vick please get a break?!! DAMN!!!

Barry's Ball Will Be Branded...

Marc Ecko (a fashion designer) bought Barry Bonds' record-breaking home run ball for $752,467 only to leave the decision of what should happen to the ball up to the public. He set up a Web site for fans to vote on the ball's fate which included: branding it with an asterick, sending it to the Hall of Fame museum unblemished, or launching it into space. The option to brand it received the most votes, and so that will be done. The asterisk suggests that Bonds' record is tainted by alleged steroid use.

And speaking of Barry Bonds...he WILL NOT be on the Giants' roster next season...I repeat, Barry Bonds WILL NOT be on the Giant's roster next season. That's dirty San Fran!!!

When I see Serena looking like this, I have to give her props! Girl is lookin' mo and mo better (lol)! I posted a pic of her a while back and wondered if she'd gotten a new stylist or something and I'm convinced that she has! She looks really great and it's so good to see her wearing clothes that are flattering to her muscular body instead of clothes that just make her look manish!

In case you were wondering the occassion for her looking so fabu, she was at the premiere of the new Jamie Foxx movie (The Kingdom).

Not Them Too!!!....

Ya'll know I love D.Wade right :o) BUT this news does not make me happy at all and I really hope that it's a rumor! "Supposedly" he and his wife are separated! As beautiful as I think he is, and as much as I dream about him at night, and as much as I drool when I see pictures of him...I don't want him and his wife to get a divorce. What good does it do me if they split anyway?! It's not like I'm next in line or anything. That just means he's fair game to some other chick that I won't accept like I've come to accept his wife (lol). I wonder what's in the Miami water b/c it's breaking people up! First Shaq now D. Wade? I'm gonna cross my fingers for these two!

The Goldman's Need Jesus!!

Everybody knows what's going on with O.J. It's looking like he was set-up last week and now a mockery is once again being made out of him. Please don't get it twisted, I am in no way an O.J. supporter, fan, or whatever. I didn't give a damn about O.J. before his ex-wife and her boyfriend turned up dead and that feeling still remains today.

It seems like every since O.J. got off was acquitted, the Goldman family has been trying to take everything from him! I don't know how it feels to have a close loved one so brutally murdered, but I'm almost sure that I wouldn't invest all of my time and energy into making the acquitted person's life hell. Last week, the money hungry Goldman's released O.J.'s controversial book "If I Did It" and are racking up all of the profit. I understand getting the rights to the book and making sure that it is NEVER released, but they released it which makes absolutely no sense. This week, they've crawled their way back into O.J. World yet again by trying to receive the memorabilia that O.J. Simpson is accused of committing armed robbery to recover. Their plan is to make sure that "the stuff will never go back to Mr. Simpson. He's going to walk out of Clark County empty-handed."

All I can do is shake my head. It's been over 10 years since the death of their son. Why not just try to move on? It's a damn shame that they have so much hate in their heart's and can't find it within themselves to get past this and let God deal with whoever actually murdered their kid. I can't help but feel that they are missing so much out of life by trying to find ways to get at O.J. When will they realize that none of this will bring their son back?

I LOVE Floyd Mayweather!

...So I will be tuning into Dancing with the Stars every week! The first shows begins with the ladies on September 24. Floyd and the rest of the celebrity men will be on September 25.

Grandaddy Greg Will Miss the ENTIRE Season...

Greg Oden will miss the entire upcoming basketball season due to micro fracture knee surgery. Oden is expected to be on crutches for up to eight weeks. Recovery time from micro fracture surgery varies from person to person, but generally takes between six and 12 months for full recovery. I really, really like Greg Oden so I'm hoping that he fully recovers and has a great season whenever he does return!

I Told Ya'll that I Believed in Miracles...

I posted about the possible paralysis of Kevin Everett a few days ago. However, I was hoping that a miracle would occur and he'd someday walk again. He's been making tremendous improvements and though he'll never be able to play football again, he may be able to walk someday soon!

Kevin Everett has slightly moved three fingers on his right hand, potentially another positive sign in his recovery from a life-threatening spinal-cord injury. The Buffalo tight end voluntarily moved his fingers Thursday night "more than a little bit but not with great force." "There was slight movement." On Wednesday, doctors said Everett could wiggle his toes, bend his hip, move his ankles, elevate and kick his leg, as well as extend his elbows and slightly flex his biceps. But he had not been able to move his hands. (ESPN)

Jamarcus Russell is finally getting the money that held out over six months for. Today he'll sign a deal and should be practicing for the first time as a Raider on tomorrow. The deal has a maximum value of $68 million with $31-$32 mil in guarantees!!! Although his holdout has cost him the chance of winning the starting job in training camp, it was well worth it (financially that is). If I had over $30 mil in guaranteed money, I wouldn't even want to be the starter...hell I wouldn't even care if I was on the practice squad or not! *lol*

Kevin Everett SEVERLY Injured

It's been a long time since a football player has sustained an injury as severe as paralysis. On Sunday, Kevin Everett sustained a "catastrophic and life-threatening spinal-cord injury while trying to make a tackle during the Buffalo Bills' season opener and is unlikely to walk again." This is really sad. I believe in miracles so I hope that one day he's able to walk again.

"A best-case scenario is full recovery, but not likely," orthopedic surgeon Andrew Cappuccino said. "I believe there will be some permanent neurologic deficit." Everett was hurt Sunday after he ducked his head while tackling the Denver Broncos' Domenik Hixon during the second-half kickoff. Everett dropped face-first to the ground after his helmet hit Hixon high on the left shoulder and side of the helmet. Cappuccino noted the 25-year-old reserve tight end did have touch sensation throughout his body and also showed signs of movement. But he cautioned that Everett's injury was life-threatening because he was still susceptible to blood clots, infection and breathing failure."

Shaq and Shaunie are getting a divorce after 5 years and 4 kids! What happened?! They seemed so perfect for each other. I thought they had at least a 10 year marriage in them. Shaq, who filed for divorce, wants Shaunie to "provide a correct accounting of all money, funds, stocks, bonds, and other securities" that she had access to or obtained during the marriage. Hmmm....sounds like Shaunie may have been a little funny with the money. If I was Shaunie I'd be trying my damnest to make it work, because I can only imagine how hard it'll be to raise five children (she had one before Shaq) alone.

I had no idea that Travis Henry (Denver Broncos) had such an disturbingly, interesting situation. If you don't know, he has NINE children with NINE women and all I can say is...ugh! I'm not one to pass judgement and I credit myself on my "openmindedness," but WTF?! What was this guy thinkin?! This dude is hella fertile. If I met him, I'd haul ass in the opposite direction. The sad part about it is I'm sure there're a few boppers who wouldn't mind being baby mama #10. God bless those misguided souls! I can go on and on about this forever, but I'm not. Whether he's a great father or not isn't the point. If this was a woman, no amount of motherly love would make people think that her mothering nine children with nine fathers was ok. I don't live my life controlled by double standards so I'd just like to take this time to call Travis Henry a nasty, stank hoe! (lol)

Happy Birthday Kobe!!!

Today is Kobe Bryant's 29th birthday! As ya'll know he's playing USA basketball right now so his birthday wishes weren't too over the top. When asked what he wanted to celebrate on this day, he replied, "three butt naked white girls who won't tell" (of course I'm just telling the truth kidding). Seriously, he said that all he wants is the ball. May all his wishes come true..

This May Be a Long One...

For the most part. I haven't really blogged about my true personal feelings on Michael Vick because I feel like enough people already are. Besides, I try to avoid long posts that go on and on forever. However, I just feel like since everyone has their two cents, I can have mine as well.

I DO NOT think that Michael Vick is a "bad person." I do not think that he should be executed (can you believe that this lady on the radio where I'm from said that if she was a prosecutor she'd have him executed without a doubt...WTF?), I do not think that he's a potential serial killer (I also heard people say that since he tortures animals, humans can't be too far behind), and I think that he SHOULD play in the NFL again (call me crazy, but I'll call me forgiving). And maybe I feel the way that I feel because I've grown up with an understanding and crazy acceptance of dogfighting. Maybe it's because I understand the culture that accepts, participates, and find no harm dogfighting and feel that it is (as Stephon Marbury said earlier this week) a sport. Unfortunately I understand a culture that does many things that are illegal, but because of it I know that just because a person is involved in things that are not ok in the eyes of the law DOES NOT necessarily make the person a bad human being.

The Michael Vick situation has been viewed and discussed from all angles. Of course race was one of them. I'm black, and I'd like to consider myself as the last person to ever pull the race card. I hate when race comes up in discussion many times because I just like to feel that everybody is the same and no organized faction (whether it be the government, the NFL, or simply a college or university) practices racism. I know that this is not true, but it's the way that I like to believe it should be and therefore that's the way that I sometimes pretend that it is. With that said, someone has to blatantly say some racist shit (like I hate black people) for me to label it as racism. But, I'm going to explore race for a minute. Not to make an excuse but to encourage understanding.

I grew up in a urban environment. There were black people to the left of me, to the right of me, in front of me, and behind me. In my neighborhood (and I'm gonna speak for a majority of urban neighborhoods across America) we didn't really care about dogs like a lot of other people do. Dogs were just that....dogs. As a kid, I can remember seeing stray, unkept, uncivilized dogs roaming the streets all of the time. In our community we didn't call the animal shelter for them, we didn't want to adopt them, we didn't have some warm feeling in our heart because a three legged dog limped down the street. We just didn't want that dog in our yard trying to eat our food, or possibly being a threat to our kids. That's a stark contrast to a lot of white people who I know that will be late for work if they see a stray dog just so they can either find it's rightful owner or seek help for it (I use that example because I actually worked with a person who was late for work so that she could make sure a stray animal was taken care of). I grew up playing with my male cousins and I'm aware of the devious nature of boys (that sometimes never leave as men). My cousins would throw bricks at manged dogs or do any devilish "boy thing" that they could think of. Would they get in trouble for it? NO. Would they get in trouble for doing that to another kid?...Hell Yeah. That's probably because in my family kindness, care, and concern for human beings were stressed. I guess they forgot to tell us how important it is to love your fellow dog.

I'm not a dog nor animal lover, but I don't hate them either. I would never torture an animal as a child (and I always thought I didn't because I'm a "giiirl") or as an adult. But as a child I would never do lot of the dangerous, mischievous things that a lot of boys would do either. So with all of that being said, I understand dogfighting as being a cultural thing. I don't/never participate but not because I think the people who do it are's just that I'm not interested. As I grew older, a lot of those same boys that I played with as a child bred dogs and trained them to fight. I'd have casual conversation with a guy or two and even ask how "the last fight went" or "how much did you win?" I'd even hear about the losses and how pissed a person was because their dog disappointed. I've played with some pits trained for fighting, and even have been invited to dog fights (again not declining because I thought it was wrong, just wasn't interested). I have a good friend who is involved and I trust him around myself, my family, and etc. He's a trustworthy person and his interest in dogfighting doesn't diminish his credibility with me.
For those who didn't grow up with the knowledge or casual attitude towards dogfighting, it's hard to understand. But can you believe that some of the same people who engage in dogfighting would never shoot a buckshot between the eyes of a deer? Can you believe that some of the same people who dogfight would never go out and kill chinchillas for their fur (these are both things that are legal and accepted). Why is it that a person who finds nothing wrong with dogfighting is a potential serial killer while a person who shoots up the forest is a respectable hunter? If you thought that Michael Vick was a good guy at this time last year, what about him is different at present? Last year he was involved in the activities that we're now finding out about, and that's the Mike Vick we've always known. According to reports, he's been a dogfighter since we've been introduced to him! So is he terrible now that his dark done activity has come to light? I'm sorry, but I really don't think so.

In our country we're more forgiving of people who hurt humans than we are of those who hurt animals. Everyday I listen to some over the top person on TV talking about Vick like he's the scum of the earth, like he should crawl into a hole and die there, like it'll be a disgrace to mankind if he ever steps foot on a football field. While all of this is being said, Leonard Little is playing preseason football with the Rams. He has been forgiven and forgotten and he actually is responsible for the demise of another human being. If he is playing football again, I can only hope that Mike Vick gets another chance. For some reason I don't think he's dumb enough to ever do again what he's done before. I don't think he'll ever associate with people who mean him more harm than good for as long as he lives. I believe in second chances, I believe in forgiving people and all of that has to do with me believing in God. I've screwed up so much and yet I can't imagine God saying "serves you right" and not giving me another chance. If God can forgive Michael Vick, then to hell with everybody else.

And the Oscar Goes to...

Jerome Bettis has a book coming out, "The Bus. My Life in and out of a Helmet," and in it he tells of how in 2000 he faked an injury to avoid being cut.

Bettis came into training camp with a knee that had been surgically repaired theprevious summer. Bettis, fearing he would be cut if the team knew how much the knee was injured, didn't say anything. During a short-yardage drill at an early camp practice, Bettis fell down, grabbed his knee and yelled in pain. "Man, did I do a nice job of acting,'' Bettis wrote in the book. "The thing is, I wasn't faking that I had an injury. I was just faking that the injury happened on that short-yardage play. I had to fool the coaches and the team's medical department into thinking the injury had occurred on that play. Otherwise, the Steelers would have had their reason to cut me and my salary."

And I ain't mad at him.

Do You Want Barry Bonds' Record Breaking Ball?

Well you can get it if you're the highest bidder. Ol' boy who caught it just can't afford to keep it (the government is a trip) so he's auctioning it off. He said, "It wasn't hard. It was simple math. I'm upset by the decision I had to make. I wanted to keep it. I'm young. I don't have the bank account. ... It would have cost me a lot more to keep it."

Larry Johnson Finally Ends Holdout...

Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson agreed to a 6-year, $45M deal of which $19M is guaranteed. I know he's happy to finally reach an agreement, but I'm almost certain that he's not happy about the fine of $14,280 per day for missing 25 days of training. The holdout will cost him about $357,000!

I'm Not Surprised...

One thing that I was shocked about after the whole Pacman Vegas strip club situation was that a gang of people didn't come of the woodworks trying to sue for anything that they could. These days people will sue for anything. However, a female who was actually shot that night is filing a suit against Pac. Natalie Jones claims she required three weeks in intensive care to recover from her injuries and lost wages as a result of missing work as a registered nurse. However, Jones' lawyer (Pacman Jones that is) is skeptical of her claim b/c he believes that she was treated and released in one day. Whatever the case is, if Pacman Jones has $81K to just throw away in one night, ole girl should get something if she was injured in any way no matter how big or small. That's just my opinion though.

What a Tradegy...

Former Minnesota Timberwolves forward Eddie Griffin died last week when his sport utility vehicle collided with a freight train in a fiery crash. Investigators used dental records to identify Griffin, 25, who began his tumultuous pro career with the Houston Rockets in 2001. He was waived by the Timberwolves in March...Houston police said in a report that the driver of the SUV ignored a railroad warning and went through a barrier before striking the moving train at about 1:30 a.m. Friday. The resulting fire burned the SUV and the side of a railcar carrying plastic granules, police said. The driver's body was badly burned and there was no identification. (FOX)

The accident happened on the 17th. Apparently he was burned beyond recognition so that's why the news is just breaking because his dental record ID was confirmed on yesterday. This is definitely sad, and seems like something that could have been avoided on his end. I wonder what he was thinking when he basically ignored the fact that a train was coming. Either way, the end result is completely tragic and unfortunate.

Michael Vick is Pleading Guilty...

Michael Vick will plead guilty on Monday to dogfighting charges. At this time, it's unsure of how long he'll be locked up and etc.

David Beckham Scores...

Last night David Beckham got his first start for the L.A Galaxy and in his first start he scored a goal! We all know how huge it is to score in soccer. They ended up winning 2-0 in which he had an assist on the second goal.

I know that this has nothing to do with anything but....damn!

This Body is Ludicrous!!

Guess who this former hot body guy is?? Click Here

It May Not be So Bad Afterall...

Michael Vick's lawyers are currently trying to negotiate a plea agreement that would include less than a year in prison. With the skies in Micheal VickLand being cloudy with chances of lifetime showers, serving less than a year in prison could be the sun that I'm sure he's been on the lookout for. He has until Friday to decide if he'll take a plea agreement or not. Hopefully some good will come from this b/c I really would hate to see his entire career end. I don't know Micheal Vick (never even met him or seen a Va. Tech or Falcons game in person), but I'd bet my balls that he never goes near a pitbull again as long as lives. Matter-of-fact, if he serves less than a year in prison, he should become a vegetarian, sell all his minks, and become PETA's biggest supporter.

Vince Young is a Terrible, Terrible Guy...

Some people can really exaggerate a situation. I was watching ESPN on yesterday and they were talking about Vince Young violationg a team rule recently. In case you didn't know, Vince Young broke curfew by spending Friday night at home instead of at the hotel where the team stays during camp. Any player with less than four years experience has to stay at a hotel. As a result, he didn't play in the preseason opener. This to me is no big deal. But maybe I'm not normal because (I know someone is gonna hate me for this but...) Michael Vick's situation didn't seem to be that big of a deal to me either (forgive me, I'm from the South and animal cruelty is popular down here). So some guy on ESPN was saying how this "scares him" because Young is not displaying the ability to lead the team and blah, blah, blah. Basically he was using Vince's decision to sleep home (vs a hotel) as measure of his quarterbacking and leadership abilities.

I was really surprised at the way his character was being discussed for something so small. I turned up the TV as loud as I could b/c I thought maybe they said that he killed a homeless sheep instead of he went home to sleep. If he had killed a sheep then his ass would be in trouble because we know how this country feels about animals.

It's Not Looking too Good for Vick...

I feel bad saying that I feel bad for Michael Vick. Everybody has their opinion(s) about his situation, so I'll keep mine to myself. I think it's a bit harsh how the hardcore animal lovers in the world think that he should be cruxified though! Don't get me wrong, I think that his crime is serious but damn....he can't get a break. If I was Mike Vick, I'd run away to Tijuana and really become the Ron Mexico who he's pretended to be for so long.
With two more co-defendants distancing themselves from Michael Vick, the
embattled Falcons quarterback was considering on Monday whether to accept a
plea agreement for his alleged role in a dogfighting operation. Sources told ESPN's Kelly Naqi that Vick attorneys Larry Woodward and Billy Martin met with federal prosecutor Michael Gill and the investigators on Monday afternoon. The attorneys planned to speak with the quarterback in the evening to see what direction he wants to go in. That comes on the heels of news that co-defendants Purnell Peace and Quanis Phillips are scheduled to appear in federal court in Richmond at the end of the week and are expected to accept their own plea agreements.

May this be a lesson to all of the young dumb athletes who are obsessed with "keeping it real." Keeping it real is telling your broke cousins and homeboys to kiss your ass when they suggest your involvement in activity that could risk your career. In most cases, keeping it real is forgetting their names the second after you get drafted. I'm sure that Mike Vick looked out for the same "friends" who're now coping pleas. It doesn't look to me like they're looking out for him at all. I don't care how sincere you think are to a person, when you're flirting with prison time, sincerity goes out the window (I'd rat out my mama to avoid going to the big house...I'm too pretty. Those dyke hoes would have a field day with me, lol). I guess Michael Vick just had to find that out the hard way.

Remember the guy who caught Barry Bond's record breaking ball the other night?? Well, the guy (who's just a 21-year old college student) was on the Today Show talking about how he doesn't know if he's gonna sell the ball or keep it. He's saying that he wants to keep it b/c of it's sentimental value. Check this out though....

If he sells the ball now he can get $500,000 for it. After the good ole government snatches 35% percent of that (that's about $200,00!!!), he can keep the rest. (That's some real bullshit but hey, the government has been bullshit forever). What's even more crazier and ridiculous than that is that if he keeps the ball he could STILL have to pay taxes on it based on an estimate of it's value!!!! That thought alone makes me want to cry. That makes absolutely no sense!! I love America but our government is the biggest group of crooks in the world! They rob and steal from us everyday. The fucked up part about it is that they word everything in a way to make it seem like it's the gospel when it's just really their way of screwing us over! And we have no choice but to comply! **smh**

SO what does he do?? Does he sell the ball and pocket about $300,000 or does he sell it and face the possibility of having to pay taxes JUST because of it's worth?? Personally, I'd sell the ball. That's just because I have student loans, debt, and a strong desire to make it rain in the club for a change. But I do understand why he'd want to keep it. But damn...who wants to pay taxes on a stupid baseball just for it's sentimental value?

Esquire's Best Dressed in 2007...

Can ya'll believe that New England Patriot QB Tom Brady topped the list as the #1 best dressed man in 2007 (right ahead of Jay-Z!)?! Well, he did! I don't really take much notice to Tom Brady's off the field attire so I can neither agree nor disagree. However, one person who I take a LOT of notice to came in at #14. IMO the only thing better than a sexy chocolate man is a sexy chocolate man who knows how to dress. That man, ladies and gentlemen, is Dwyane Wade!!!...and he's killin that canary yellow!

...Also gangsta French rappin' Tony Parker Longoria came in at #23. I couldn't seem to find a picture of him without either his game gear on or Eva standing right under him, but we all know what he looks like.

Did Ya'll See the Way They Stopped the Game??

Barry Bonds hitting his 756th career homerun had to be one of the best moments in sports history that I've ever witnessed. Just think, the last time the record was broken was like 50 years ago. It could be another 50 years before it's done again! I've seen a lot of great sports moments, but none like last night. Immediately after Barry hit the HR, the damn game just stopped! His family rushed the field, they gave him a was crazy!! I was confused for a second thinking, "Are they just really gonna end the game in the 5th inning like this??"

After Barry thanked the fans, shed a few tears, spit out a few sunflower seeds, and waved his hat in the air a few times, he was through (off to get pissy drunk and talk shit about all the haters...well that's how I would've celebrated at least). He gathered his belongings and peaced out (gotta love baseball!)...BUT not before Hank Aaron magically appeared on the jumbotron to officially "pass the torch" and give his words of congratulations (for some reason, I think he was strongly persuaded to do this). The commissioner, however, was nowhere in sight (**smh**).

And here's the oh so lucky guy who caught the ball! I bet he got drunker than Barry last night!
