Glocks & Athletes Are Not A Good Combination

Posted by Joel Jackson on December 1, 2008

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…

I believe Ken Lucas is looking for another ass whipping

Lucas after Smith schooled him

Lucas after Smith schooled him

Many of you may remember that on August 1st, Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve “Hands of Stone” Smith punched beat the hell out of cornerback Ken Lucas.

Apparently Lucas didn’t learn his lesson. Even though Lucas punked by someone who at least 18 inches shorter than him, he is now talking trash about Smith in the press. In an interview for the Charlotte Observer he states:

“I’m not going to lie to you and tell you it was easy,” says Lucas. “I never thought I could.”

He adds: “I could have hurt him in a serious way.”

However in fairness to Lucas he also might have realized his error during the interview or he remembers the pain that Smith put him though because he then states:

“It could have ended a lot of different ways,” says Lucas. “I could have lost my eyesight, I could have lost consciousness, I could have lost my life.”

Well I’m glad Smith didn’t kill you. Can we say drama queen everyone?

Smith has been suspended for two games but that’s really just to train for a fight with the world’s toughest man Chuck Norris. Smith refuses to comment on Lucas’s cowardly statements to the press. After all Smith will let his actions do the talking.

Melee at the end of WNBA game ends in ejections

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on July 23, 2008

The WNBA has been struggling for television viewers and reverence since its inception, finally has a good old cat fight, thus giving me a reason to write about it.

Tennessee Goddess Candace Parker and the Los Angeles Sparks score a win over the Detroit Shock. Unfortunately, it will be the final five seconds that everyone else is going to remember.

Goddess Parker was one of three players ejected along with Detroit assistant coach Rick “Bad Boy” Mahorn after a somewhat entertaining melee with 4.6 seconds left.

“To be honest, I don’t recall exactly what happened,” said Goddess Parker, who led Los Angeles with 21 points. “I’ll have to watch the tape.”

The cat fight started moments after Goddess Parker and Detroit’s Cheryl Ford had to be separated after Ford fouled Parker.

On the next possession, Goddess Parker got tangled up with Detroit’s Plenette Pierson and fell to the ground. As she was getting up, Pierson in bitch mode & intentionally ran into her, setting off the melee.

Goddess Parker threw a punch at Pierson before being tackled by Detroit’s Deanna Nolan. Players and coaches from both teams joined in, and Mahorn knocked Lisa Leslie to the court at one point.

“I was trying to protect the whole game, the integrity of the game,” he said. “The WNBA is very special to me because I have four daughters. I don’t even raise my hand to them, and I would never push a woman. This game, I love this game too much.”

“Rick Mahorn is known as a peacemaker, from even the brawl we had here with Indiana,” Detroit coach Bill Laimbeer said. “He went out there to get people off the pile and to get people to stop the confrontation. That’s who he is, that’s what he does.”

All in all I like Mahorn but I don’t think he was playing piece maker I think his emotions got the better of him. The last thing Mahorn was known for when he was playing the game was a piece maker.

Keeping the piece…nothing to see here folks

However Los Angeles coach Michael Cooper feels Mahorn was trying to stop the fight.

“I think Rick was trying to play peacemaker, but he’s just too big,” Sparks coach Michael Cooper said. “I was only trying to grab my players, and I didn’t see exactly what happened, but he apparently gently tried to push Lisa away.”

DeLisha Milton-Jones shoved and punched Mahorn after the incident with Leslie and was ejected, along with Mahorn, Goddess Parker and Pierson. Nolan and Shannon Bobbitt each received technical fouls.

“That was unfortunate, but things like that happen in basketball sometimes,” Milton-Jones said. “The league is going to have to decide what kind of action to take.”

Ford sprained her right knee while trying to restrain Pierson and left the floor in a wheelchair. Her status is unknown.

“I’m glad that none of our players got hurt, and I hope that Cheryl is OK,” Cooper said.

The brawl marred a key victory for Los Angeles, which came in having lost four of five.

Tempers Flare Sox Still Win

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on June 6, 2008

Coco Dodges

In the process of defeating the Tampa Rays by a score of 7-1 Boston center fielder Coco Crisp was hit on the right hip by Tampa Bay right-hander James Shields, prompting a benches-clearing brawl in the second inning.

Crisp dropped his bat, charged the mound, ducked a wild right by Shields before throwing a few punches of his own on Shields before being tackled to the ground by catcher Dioner Navarro.

Rays DH Jonny “I’m a Cheapshot Artist” Gomes charged the mound from the dugout, jumped on Navarro and Crisp, and threw a few punches that hit Crisp while he was on the ground.

I now know why nobody in Tampa watches these bums. What a bunch a jerkoffs. They try to pick fights with the Yankees in SPRING TRAINING and now this? Seems like a bunch of immature thugs crying over sour apples. I hope Sheilds gets a 7 day suspension, and Gomes, he should get 7 games as well. What a punk. Crisp deserves a lengthy suspension as well, but it’s not like he had a choice…Just trying to defend himself from a blatant attempt to injure him.

The tempers carried over from Wednesday’s game when Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said Crisp “intentionally” tried hurt somebody. He slid hard into second baseman Akinori Iwamura when he was caught stealing two innings after shortstop Jason Bartlett blocked the bag with his leg which was a bush league move. Crisp injured his left thumb against Bartlett’s leg.

“It’s simple,” Gomes said, when asked what he was doing when he got to the mound. “I’m just going out there for my pitcher’s defense.”

Crisp, who had a scratch on his forehead and right cheek, was most upset with what happened under the pile.

“I charged the mound. [Shields] tried to hit me with a punch,” Crisp said. “I’m not upset at all. We fought. That’s all it is. There were some cheap shots there. [Carl] Crawford came sliding in. I don’t know why he was pulling hair, scratching. After that it was three, four guys on one.”

Crawford = complete woman.

After Wednesday’s game, Maddon said

“I believe the players should take care of things on the field.”

Crisp was also involved in a flare-up in the eighth Wednesday. When he went to the mound to make a pitching change, Maddon turned toward the Red Sox dugout and said something to Crisp.

“Everybody else on the mound started looking over there so I got louder,” Crisp said after the game. “I don’t know if he could hear what I was saying but basically I just said, ‘I did that on my own so don’t punish anybody else on the team.”

Crisp said he was upset with shortstop Bartlett, not Iwamura, after Bartlett put his knee down in front of the bag on Crisp’s successful steal in the sixth. His thumb was bandaged after the game, but he started Thursday.

“I told him … I’d get back on base and then I’m going to show him how I felt about it,” Crisp said. “It wasn’t as dramatic as it probably would have been if he would have covered the bag.”

These guys miss hockey season already.
