ZIP SET, ZIP SET, ZIP SET

The Zips, originally the Zippers, have a kangaroo  as their mascot. W.T.F.? That’s just as stupid as the Stanford tree. As for the song, I’ll give J20 some credit for holdin it down for his kanga. Some Cam’ron style lyrics with kangaroo or Zips repeated 72 times woulda been classic, but not everybody can create a masterpiece.

KWAME BROWN’S LESBIAN BAR REHAB

5 weeks after reconstructive surgery on his left ankle and 1 week since surgery on his right shoulder, Kwame Brown looks good to go.. To the club. He was spotted at the Here Lounge in West Hollywood last Thursday, enjoying himself to the fullest. While primarily a gay men’s bar, Thursday nights at the Here Lounge is for the ladies.

Here are 2 pieces of good news for Laker fans. Good News#1: Kwame wasn’t bouncing around on the ankle. He was playing the wall and dancing with two ladies at the same time. He wasn’t raisin’ the roof or walkin it out, just gettin’ his freak on. Good News#2: This happened after Kobe’s shopping center video rant. KB24 woulda had another reason to talk about “fucked up situations”.

I’m a fan of the girls that like to party with girls so I’m not knockin’ the former #1 overall pick for this. I’m sayin though, if you mix Kwame Brown, scoring problems, lesbian bar, Michael Jordan allegedly calling Brown a flaming faggot, and Phil Jackson’s comments together, you get one helluva punchline.

**Shout out to Bad Gyrl for the tip**

KOSAR VS. DAWKINS, LOCAL ADVERTISING SHOWDOWN

Posted by HG on July 9, 2007

Part of being a big time athlete are the endorsements you get. There’s the shoes, sodas, and video games. Everybody can’t be “on the cover” so that leads to athletes teaming up businesses in the local community.

Brian Dawkins seems excited about his opportunity:

I’m an Eagles fan but that’s hard to watch. Here’s Bernie Kosar slangin add-on heat pumps.

I guarantee Charlie Frye is trying to order an add-on heat pump as I type this. Bernie’s a pretty bad actor, but he nailed the “it’s pure comfort”/toss ball to self part of the commercial.

MICHAEL VICK BEATS THE COVERAGE

How many times have you heard a lawyer (real or fake) say “I could indict an innocent man/dead man/ham sandwich? The idea being that it’s easy to get an indictment. So when the feds come back and say that they are unlikely to indict Vick because:

The authorities have told the Falcons and league that there has not been any evidence that can be tied to Vick with the alleged dogfighting ring.

That’s a pretty powerful statement. It goes against almost everything we’ve heard during this saga. Michael Vick was tried in the media, and found guilty, because people wanted him to be guilty. There was a rush to judgment on the public’s part, but with a lot of the misinformation being given, what could you expect?

Whatever happened to the videotape that shows Mike Vick at a dogfight party? It would’ve turned up by now if it really existed. It sucks that something like that can get floated out by major outlets without consequence. Vick got done wrong in the media, Dwil has a whole lot more to say about it, and hopefully everybody has learned from it.

The news is good for Michael Vick but not for everybody in his camp. The feds still plan to indict at least 3 people, and the Surry County investigation hasn’t concluded yet. At least Vick’s name is safe from the smut for a few days.
