I was well prepared to talk about Tennessee hiring Lane Kiffin and what I thought of it. I along with millions of other Volunteer fans have my opinion, but I want to spend this time to talk about a troubling trend the past, oh, 14 years or so. I am about to do my best Jason Whitlock impersonation, except I am not as big, well-known, or paid.
I have known and/or met quite a few pro athletes in my day. By and large, the ones that I have met are down to earth guys, trying to improve themselves in the sport that they play. They are trying to improve themselves so they can improve their bank accounts. For the athletes that have come from little to nothing growing up, they try to help out family and friends along their journey to fame and fortune. This cycle can lead to problems.
To the athletes reading this blog, please do the following couple of things for me:
*Leave the guns at home…
I am watching the Redskins vs. Giants game. Ironic because on this day, where the Redskins are honoring fallen teammate Sean Taylor, who was murdered in his home a year ago, Plaxico Burress is facing weapons charges because he decided to go “Cheddar Bob” on his thigh while carrying a handgun illegally (or he wanted to be on the next diss record of Eminem, 50 Cent, and Busta Rhymes). If the club was such a bad place to be, then why go??? He’s married (to a lawyer) and has a young son. Why put yourself through now facing jail time over seeing some ass shaking at the club, and get teammate Antonio Pierce involved??? Stephen Jackson, Jamaal Tinsley, and Marvin Harrison would agree. If you are about to go somewhere and you think that you need a gun, then don’t go. If I need a gun to go to my local Quickie Mart for a chocolate squishy, then I won’t be seeing Apu that night. Which leads me to the next point…
*Do not own more than 3 guns…
A wise man once told me that if you are gonna own a gun for home protection, get 3. One should be a handgun that you can grab quickly (Glock), one should be a rifle or shotgun, and one should be a small pistol that your woman could shoot in a pinch (.22 or .38). Whether this is wise or not, I think this is sound advice. In other words, do not be Tank Johnson. And if you wanna be a rapper, PLEASE do not be T.I.
*Last, everyone is not out to get you…
Unless you allow yourself to be associated with bad people, not everyone is out to get you. Yes, crime is everywhere, and what happened to Sean Taylor was a tragedy not of his doing, but of 4 kids who wanted to take a short cut at getting ahead. At the same time, you athletes for the most part have more money than I will ever see. Use some of that to invest in a security company and let bodyguards carry the weapons. Because if you pull a Plax and not have that concealed handgun license, you could shoot yourself at 3 a.m., or face jail time. And please don’t rob any convenience stores…

Look at Mr. Young. He looks so peaceful, stoic, determined, and defiant. Damned all of the legal troubles, he is a true sacrifice for the institution that we call Alabama football. I love this pic of Mr. Young. Hanging on the wall behind him is God in houndstooth, Coach Bryant. I dare not call Mr. Young by his first name, because he is too important in the annals of Alabama football.
Some of us members of the now “Saban Nation” have distanced ourselves from Mr. Young. Not me. I fully embrace Mr. Young for his efforts to make sure that ‘Bama Ball keeps its rightful place among the top of college football. USC, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Michigan football be damned. Alabama IS college football and the sacrifice that Mr. Young has made should be a shining example of giving up yourself for the greater good of Alabama football. RTR…
I am getting almost misty eyed writing this, but if I can get at least one of my fellow ‘Bama brethern to see the light, then I will gladly dehydrate by ocular extraction for the greater good. After all, Mr. Young gave the ultimate gift in the name of Alabama football, so a few lost tears won’t hurt.
Last December, before I made my winter hunting trip to Shreveport, I was in the Bass Pro Shop in Prattville looking for a brand new Benelli Super Nova w/ Steady Grip. This gun is perfect for hunting the native nutria in Shreveport. As I was holding the piece, a vision came upon me. As I made my purchase, I decided to name this particular gun Mr. Young. This gun would be used to pierce the hearts and heads of any prey that may come before me, just as Mr. Young used his incredible finances to ensure recruits land at Alabama. Anyway, after we set up our nutria blind in Shreveport, I got my gear on and loaded Mr. Young. As I laid down cabbage leaves in the nutria kill zone, I raced back to the blind until the first critter came out. I grabbed Mr. Young, saw the creature through my Bushnell scope, and squeezed the trigger. I caught that nutria right between the eyes. Mr. Young was accurate and deadly, just like the original. We ate plenty of nutria that night in December, along with some Golden Flake chips and a Coke, just like Bear did. The next night, we watched the Tide roll over those pagans from Colorado.
Mr. Young, you are gone, but this Little Bear Cub will never forget you or the sacrifice that you made for the University of Alabama. ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday, the Oakland Raiders acquired CB DeAngelo Hall from the Atlanta Falcons for a 2nd and 6th round pick i this year’s draft. The Raiders then gave Hall a 7 year, $70 million extension. This gives the Raiders an upgrade in the secondary, Hall a much needed break from getting burned twice a year by Panthers WR Steve Smith, and Atlanta 4 picks out of the first 40 selections in this year’s draft. So why could this mean a win win for the Cowboys and Raiders???
Oakland has this year’s #4 pick. Picking ahead of them are Miami, St. Louis, and Atlanta. The Cowboys have two 1st round picks this year, thanks to Cleveland giving them this year’s #1 pick so the Browns could trade for the new rainbow warrior, Brady Quinn. Jerry Jones has stated that he wants some wow on Dallas’ offense this year. Jerry Jones should be on the phone with Raiders owner Al Davis now and offer both picks to the Raiders for the #4 overall pick. The Cowboys could then be in great position to take Darren McFadden. Jones would be happy to have an exciting fellow Razorback on his team, and the combination of Marion Barber and McFadden in the backfield would give the Cowboys that “wow” that Jones covets, and would instantly generate more of a buzz than the Cowboys already possess.
As for the Raiders, they would have 2 picks in the opening round, and since the picks would be lower than #4, they would not have to pay those selections as much money as if they kept the pick. They could then use those picks as trade bait, or use both to fill in holes on the offensive line, backfield, or linebacker.
Wait a minute, these are the Oakland Raiders we are talking about. Doing things that make sense are not what this franchise are about. Al Davis is as unpredictable as they come. They have a coach that really doesn’t wanna be there and is waiting to be fired, but Davis won’t because he would have to pay him a nice lump sum of money. Lane Kiffin wouldn’t even wear anything with the team logo on it at the Senior Bowl. Davis sues everyone that he can to prove his point. He has sued the league (and won), sued cities, and even sued the Tampa Bay Bucs a few years ago for copyright infringement (which the case was tossed out). Davis is 100 years old and looks every bit like Capt. Jack Sparrow after 90 years of hard sailing on the seven seas. Their fan base of bikers, dope heads, and Darth Vader fans are just as dysfunctional as the franchise is, and no one cares. Any Raider home game could also be substituted for the pep rally in the upcoming film “Doomsday”.
Maybe if Jones threw in a lifetime supply of white and black tracksuits and a rest of his life supply of Denny’s Grand Slam Breakfasts, then Davis would make the deal……………
Stay classy, Raider fan!!!

Ok, so I am a Grizzlies fan. I am proud to be a fan of my home town team. Memphis has been the “Susan Lucci” of pro sports cities for a long time, so when the Grizzlies moved in 2001, I was hooked instantly. The franchise has had some success since moving, making the playoffs twice. But when the team has been bad, it’s been horrible. I would hope those of you still reading this post (if you didn’t move on after reading this was a post about a sorry NBA franchise) would allow me to vent. After all, Thomas created this blog to show “how ALL sports teams suck”…
Today, the Grizzlies traded star forward Pau Gasol to the Los Angeles Lakers for (drumroll please) center Kwame Brown, guard Javaris Crittenton, guard Aaron McKie, the rights to Pau’s younger brother Marc, and first round picks in the 2008 and 2010 draft. According to reports, the Grizzlies traded an unhappy star while in his prime and got cap relief in the process.
Let me translate what the Grizzlies got in return: the poster child of broken confidence and draft busts (Brown), another guard that they did not need (Crittenton), a guard who is old and on the inactive list (McKie), Gasol’s younger brother (who couldn’t even do squat against private school competition while going to school in Memphis), and 2 draft picks with a franchise that has been more miss than hit when it comes to draft picks. What the hell??? The Grizz might as well have just asked the Lakers for some bags of rice with all the magic beans they just got from LA. The team has been shopping Gasol for a while now and was rumored to go to the Bulls for a few actually good players (Gordon, Deng) but the best we could get back was Kwame Brown??? I think Woody Paige would have been a better fit for the team’s up tempo style, plus he is just as much of a stiff as Kwame Brown.
This is a franchise that doesn’t know what the hell they are doing right now. It is at best no more of an unmitigated disaster than post WWII Dresden. The team plays in a brand new arena with decent sight lines, you can get a $5 ticket to watch a game, and yet the team struggles to draw 10,000. When did the team become the Atlanta Hawks???
So what now??? I say they trade guard Mike Miller, build around Rudy Gay and Mike Conley and go from there. I am calling for owner Mike Heisley to sell the franchise to someone locally who will give a damn about the team. The team cannot relocate because of a city-franchise agreement, so sell to FedEx Founder/CEO Fred Smith, rename the team the Express or something related to package delivery, and call it a day. Or they could name the team the Bullets, since there’s millions of those flying around the city (though the Wizards may have an issue with that). The point being is that crap rolls downhill, and even though I said in the About the Wirters section that there are 547 Grizzlies fans worldwide, at this rate by this season’s end there will be 329. I will still be one, if only because my blood pressure is already high enough, so what the hell would a few more points matter???
As for what to do with the Pau Gasol jersey that I bought a few years ago (caught it on sale from Marshall’s when the NBA switched from Reebok to adidas apparel), I do have a solution, because we are a solutions-oriented blog:
*Disclaimer: My dog Jake were harmed in any way for the making of this post. This is not Bad Newz Kennels in VA and am not in any way, shape, or form connected with Michael “Ookie” Vick, his child molesting little brother Marcus, or any other dog fighting members of the Vick family…

Now this is a present. This game is basically a Monopoly, but instead of “Go To Jail”, you try to break out of jail and/or get parole. This is a description of the game from the official website:
Fight your way through 6 different exciting locations in hopes of being granted parole. Escape prison riots in The Yard, slip glass into a mob boss’ lasagna in the Cafeteria, steal painkillers from the nurse’s desk in the Infirmary, avoid being cornered by the Aryans in the Shower Room, fight off Latin Kings in Gang War, and try not to smoke your entire stash in The Hole.
The artistry of each handcrafted piece is matched with comparable humor & intelligence on every card. Stack your smokes, sharpen your shank, and get ready for an experience that only someone on the outside could appreciate.
Wow. What more can be said. Check out the game pieces. Who among us played Monopoly as a kid and thought “Wouldn’t it be cool if instead of a thimble I could use a Glock as my game piece???”
What’s the sports connection??? Well let’s see: The founder of the company and game is John Sebelius, son of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. Kansas is where America’s “favorite” marijuana smuggling (and smoking), lawsuit avoiding, Valtrex popping, inaccurate throwing, dog killing QB Michael Vick is currently doing his time. But let’s think of the endless possibilities..
How about a “Playmakers” Edition featuring O.J., his white Bronco, memorabilia, copy of “If I Did It”, and a Naked Gun DVD for playing pieces???
Or a “Ballers” Edition, with Kobe attached to a blonde female hotel clerk, Roy Tarpley, transcripts of Tim Donaghy’s gambling probe, Jack Sikma’s perm, and WNBA TV Ratings???
Lastly, what about a “Juiced” version, with Jose Canseco, Barry Bonds, Marion Jones, a syringe, and a torn record book???
If they market this game right, it could be a gold mine. Of course, someone needs to mail some of these games to all SEC schools, so they can play as part of the “Super Secret Double Probation”…

Normally I don’t gloat…a lot…well not that much…OK fine I do and I’m doing it again. As I predicted back on 9/16/07, one of OJ’s co-defendants is taking a plea deal and rolling on OJ. As we all know OJ is already a master of the shank so prison time should be easy for him, he’s the Juice. Then again if I dated Christie Prody I would look at jail as a vacation. Hopefully Abarclay12, the hottie from “The Leaky Brain” can raise enough money to mount a Johnny Cochran like defense. I think she uses OJ just to get a chance to chill with Prody, but that’s my opinion.
“A co-defendant in the O.J. Simpson armed robbery case is taking a plea deal and will testify that guns were involved in the theft of sports collectibles from two memorabilia dealers, the man’s lawyer said Friday.
Charles Cashmore, 40, of Las Vegas, intends to plead guilty Monday to being an accessory to robbery, a felony that could get him up to five years in prison, Cashmore’s lawyer, Edward Miley told The Associated Press.
“He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Miley said of Cashmore, a journeyman laborer, bartender and disc jockey.
A court clerk confirmed that a hearing is scheduled at 7:30 a.m. Monday before Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Joe Bonaventure Jr.
A spokesman for Clark County District Attorney David Roger declined immediate comment.”
How does helping someone rob another person at gunpoint become being at the wrong place at the wrong time? I wish that defense worked, then maybe I would exceed the speed limit a lot more often. I’m sorry I was driving 97 in a 40 MPH zone officer, but I was at the wrong place at the wrong time.
“Simpson and five others, including Cashmore, are charged with kidnapping, armed robbery, assault, burglary and conspiracy in the Sept. 13 encounter in a Las Vegas casino hotel room arranged by a go-between, Thomas Riccio, between Simpson and memorabilia collectors Alfred Beardsley and Bruce Fromong.
Simpson also faces a felony charge of coercion, alleging that he took a cell phone from Fromong.
Simpson has said he wanted to retrieve personal items that belonged to him, and his lawyers have maintained that no guns were used.
But Cashmore will testify that Walter Alexander and Michael McClinton, two men who entered the room with Simpson, were armed, Miley said. Miley said Cashmore was unarmed during the alleged robbery.
“The only people with guns that he knew of were Alexander and McClinton,” Miley said, adding that Cashmore’s crime was failing to immediately go to police and turn over the items he carried out of the room.
Cashmore surrendered to authorities six days later and turned over the items, after police released images from hotel security videotapes showing him carrying a box from the room.“
His lawyer is good I almost believe him. Sure that was his only crime…and I’m sure he was was an eagle scout and decorated war veteran as well. To bad I’m a better attorney though. Note..I am not an attorney but I play one on this blog I also play a brain surgeon, pilot & Coach 0. If I was his attorney my defense would be that he was threatened by the use of guns and therefore complied out of fear. He would have gone to the police earlier but OJ took one, just one mind you, of Cashmans’ gloves and left it at the crime scene while saying “They’ll never believe you, after all the glove doesn’t fit”.
“Lawyers for Simpson, McClinton and most of the others did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Alexander’s lawyer, Robert Dennis Rentzer, declined to say whether Alexander had a gun in the room.
“I owe the district attorney an answer to that question before the press,” he said. Rentzer said he was scheduled to meet with Roger on Monday, but he expressed doubt Cashmore could say Alexander was armed.
“How can he put a gun in the possession of someone who didn’t have a gun out?” Rentzer said.”
Translation: My client is guilty as hell and now we’re officially fucked, I’m working on his own plea deal right now.
Miley said Cashmore met Simpson and most of the others in the group for the first time minutes before the alleged robbery.
“O.J. says, ‘Hey I’ve got to move some stuff, can you help?”‘ Miley said.”
If it was that simple then he should have immediately gone to the police. I have a feeling he was well paid to keep his mouth shut, or threatened with “if you talk and you’ll have to sleep with Prody”. I would as soon kill myself before that option became a reality. All these legal issues really hurt OJ chances on starring in the “Surreal Life”, and I was hoping to see that become a reality.
So I profess on this day 10/12/07.

Today “the man” filed the formal charges against OJ
Slasher Simpson, and yes it included kidnapping. If you recall from this post, I said he committed kidnapping. You know I’m your hero don’t deny it.
“Prosecutors filed formal charges Tuesday against O.J. Simpson, alleging the fallen football star committed 10 felonies, including kidnapping, in the armed robbery of sports memorabilia collectors in a casino-hotel room.
Simpson, 60, was booked on five felony counts, including suspicion of assault and robbery with a deadly weapon. District Attorney David Roger filed those charges and added five other felonies, including kidnapping and conspiracy to commit kidnapping, according to court documents.
Simpson, accused along with three other men, faces the possibility of life in prison if convicted in the robbery at the Palace Station casino. He was being held without bail and was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.”
I’m so loving this district attorney. It’s doubtful he’ll get life though it would be nice.
“Simpson and the other three men are charged with two counts of first-degree kidnapping; two counts of robbery with use of a deadly weapon; burglary while in possession of a deadly weapon; two counts of assault with a deadly weapon; conspiracy to commit kidnapping; conspiracy to commit robbery; and a misdemeanor, conspiracy to commit a crime.
According to the charges, Simpson and the others went to the hotel room under the pretext of brokering a deal with Alfred Beardsley and Bruce Fromong, two longtime collectors of Simpson memorabilia.
Once in the room, Simpson prevented one of the collectors from calling 911 on his cell phone “by ripping it out of Fromong’s hand” while one or more accomplices pointed or displayed a handgun.
The kidnapping charge accuses the men of detaining each of the men “against his will, and without his consent, for the purpose of committing a robbery.”
If Fromong has the shitty cell service I have, I would have told one of the suspects to shoot phone. For someone who is retired OJ certainly can keep busy. I hope this doesn’t hurt his chances of being on the next “Dancing With the Stars”. He better have a good attorney.
So I profess on this day 9/19/07.

If I didn’t know better, I would think Fred Goldman just loves to fuck with OJ
Slasher Simpson. While OJ remains in jail awaiting a rather laughable bond hearing, the attorneys for Mr. Goldman are working feverishly to legally take OJ’s sports memorabilia, that OJ claims was stolen from him. Damn “the man” is always fucking with the Juice.
“If the Goldman family has its way, it may soon own the sports memorabilia O.J. Simpson is accused of committing armed robbery to recover for himself. One man charged along with the former football star said Tuesday that the Las Vegas hotel room dispute seemed like a setup.
Walter Alexander, 46, said Simpson may have been tricked because the memorabilia dealer who tipped him off also recorded everything on tape.
“It sounds like a setup to me,” Alexander told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Tuesday. He said Simpson had thought the memorabilia belonged to him after getting a call from the dealer.
“He did believe that he was going to retrieve his own property,” Alexander said.”
Let’s pretend and say this was a setup, that doesn’t give OJ the right to pretend he’s Cooke from Arnold Schwengers’ B-Rated movie “Commando”. He doesn’t have the biceps for it. Normal people would rather call the police and let them do their job. Oh wait I forgot, OJ isn’t normal, & he doesn’t have a good track record with the Po Po.
“Simpson was being held without bail Tuesday in Clark County Detention Center on six felonies, including two counts of robbery with use of a deadly weapon.
Witnesses and authorities have said that they don’t believe Simpson had a gun but that some of the men with him did. If convicted, Simpson could receive up to 30 years in state prison on each robbery count.”
Thirty years? Wow, what happens in Vegas really does stay in Vegas, except for my slutty neighbors mouth herpes.
“David Cook, an attorney for Goldman’s father, Fred Goldman, said he believed Nevada authorities would turn over the items with a court order after Simpson’s criminal case finishes. The items include Simpson’s Hall of Fame certificate, a gold Rolex watch and the suit Simpson wore on the day he was acquitted, Cook said.
“Assuming that this case is resolved one way or another, at the end of the case, the stuff will never go back to Mr. Simpson,” Cook vowed. “He’s going to walk out of Clark County empty-handed.”
Another man suspected in the alleged heist surrendered Monday. Clarence Stewart, 53, of Las Vegas, lived at one of the residences that police searched early Sunday to recover some of the memorabilia.
Stewart turned over some of the missing goods, including footballs bearing autographs, police said. He was being held on six felony charges, including robbery with a deadly weapon and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.
A fourth man, Tom Scotto, was questioned and cleared of suspicion after police concluded he was not in the room, reducing the number of outstanding suspects to two, police said. Both were apparently seeking attorneys and preparing to surrender, police said.
Alexander, who faces charges almost identical to Simpson’s, said he went to Las Vegas for a wedding and not to see Simpson. “I just happened to get caught up in a bad situation,” he told ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
On a serious note here I feel for Mr. Goldman, but he is letting all the bitterness and hate he has for OJ (and rightfully so) consume his life. Nothing is going to bring his son back. I understand his anger, but is OJ Simpson worth destroying your life over just to prove a point? OJ proves that point for you everyday.
Now back to ridiculing OJ. Seeing that Stewart and Scott were already talking to attorneys and planning to surrender, one can believe someone will roll on OJ. Goody! If OJ finally goes to jail, I get to call him “Jailbird Juice”, and no you can’t use it!! I’m in the process of having that term copy written
“Simpson’s arraignment was set for Wednesday. Yale Galanter, Simpson’s lawyer, said he was preparing a bond motion and will ask for Simpson’s release on his own recognizance.
“If it was anyone other than O.J. Simpson, he would have been released by now,” he said.
“You can’t rob something that is yours,” Galanter said. “O.J. said, ‘You’ve got stolen property. Either you return it or I call the police.”
Wait, released on his own recognizance? Bahahaha, Yale you’re an idiot. I agree if it was anyone but OJ they might have been released by now, but OJ is a proven flight risk. Remember that little chase involving a white Bronco?
According to this tape, I didn’t hear OJ say anything about the police. What I heard is bleep followed by bleep and “Don’t let anyone out this room”. Technically holding someone against their will is a form of kidnapping. I hope the prosecutor tacks that charge on as well.
So I profess on this day 9/18/07.
