“THE BONECRUSHER” CHANGING NICKNAME TO “PRISON BITCH”

Posted by HG on April 30, 2007

Former Purdue football player Kyle Williams won’t be playing ball anytime soon unless it’s in the “Inmates vs Guards” game. Williams has been found guilty of battery and confinement stemming from two attacks on female students at Purdue University in 2005. He was also convicted of attempted rape in one of the cases.

That’s pretty deep shit but it gets deeper. Williams is facing charges of aggravated criminal sexual assault, attempted kidnapping, aggravated battery and unlawful restraint of a woman after he allegedly attacked a woman in February 2006.. WHILE HE WAS OUT ON BOND FROM THE OTHER CASES.

Williams calls himself “The Bonecrusher”.. He even has it tattooed on his arm. Unfortunately he lived up to his nickname during his attacks by repeatedly punching these young women in the face in order to subdue them. If you need anymore proof of this guy’s mental problems check out this quote from Kyle via Purdue’s intercollegiate athletics website:

“You have to be nasty, you have to want to hit. You have to have an insane demeanor. When I am on the field, I am not myself. I get all mad, and am not in my right mind.”

I know football is a gladiator sport, but he still sounds unstable. I’m glad he’ll be off the streets for the next 6 to 40 years.

BASEBALL, BASKETBALL, AND DATING

Posted by HG on April 22, 2007

If you’re a sports junkie like me there’s gonna be times when your love life and your sports life go head to head. You wanna watch the game, she wants to go to the mall, church, the dentist, or basically anywhere you can’t watch the game. Unless you’re lucky enough to be going out with a female “junkie”, you’re gonna find yourself in the “your team or me” arguments. An argument that she’s gonna lose unless you concede for some reason. Letting your relationship crash due to sports seems worth it until the rumor starts to spread that you broke up with her because you prefer watching men play with balls. That’s not a good look. I’ve created this brief guide to help you avoid those rumors and include your honey in your sports life.

THE NEW RELATIONSHIP

arod-and-wife.jpg

If you’ve just met a new woman and you want to give her a peek into your weird, superstitious, crack like addiction to the sports world, take her to a baseball game. There’s nothing like being out at the yard on a warm summer day, eating overpriced stadium food and drinking overpriced stadium beer, with a female you’re trying to get to know. The pace of the game allows for plenty of conversation, and the basic rules are simple enough for anybody (male or female) to understand so you won’t have to spend a lot of time explaining what’s going on on the field. If you have the right seats, there’s the thrill of possibly catching a foul ball, and copping a feel protecting her from the incoming projectile. The key is the talking. If you don’t get a good read on a person after 9 innings either A) you need to step your game up or B) she’s hiding SOMETHING and you need to make that the last date.

If basketball is your game of choice there’s two options. Invite her to your place to watch the game or go to a sports bar. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT take her to a game. The tickets to the game are kinda pricey… There’s no need to blow that kinda dough in the beginning. Also, the up and down action (of the game) can be a little too exciting, leaving you with timeouts, halftime, and food runs as your only time to really talk to her. If you go the “invite her to your crib” route make sure you have food. I suggest you have two choices planned for the main course. It doesn’t matter if you’re offering McDonald’s or spaghetti, just have the options. If you have one choice of food, you better believe it’s gonna be something she doesn’t want or like. Your also gonna need a variety of snack foods and some beverages. Again, options are key, because we know how THEY do. A woman will go out of her way to make you go out of your way. You gotta head her off at the pass.

Going to the sports bar is fun and dangerous. It’s fun because you’re hanging out in a hype atmosphere, eating and drinking, and chillin wit mami. It’s dangerous because if this relationship actually goes anywhere she’s gonna think that she has sports bar privileges all the time. She would be wrong. I don’t know what it is but there’s a major difference between going on a date to the sports bar and taking your girl to the sports bar. It’s cool to go to a sports bar with the fellas and meet some women, but it’s lame to go to the sports bar with the fellas and bring your woman.

THE OLD RELATIONSHIP

At this point, you know her like the back of your hand. Some days you hope joke that she goes missing, some days are tolerable. Don’t get it twisted, you get on her nerves too. If you want have to go to a sporting event together now’s the time for basketball. Yes you’re gonna drop some money, but if it’s your girl it’s worth it.The same reasons you don’t wanna take a new relationship to a basketball game are the exact reasons you should take an old relationship. There’s gonna be the non-stop action on the floor so you won’t have to talk much. She’s out and about, eating (hopefully having a good time), and she can brag to her friends that she got to see AI. You get to see a game live, and earn some points towards “I’m hangin with the homies tonight”.

Baseball and the old relationship is a tough situation. It’s still fun to go to the park, but now you have to bring your woman. Why do you think you see so many older dudes listening to a game on the radio or filling out a scorecard? They’re saying “look baby, I brought you to the game, now leave me the hell alone”. And watching a baseball game at home with the old lady.. Forget about it. Unless you have a private room and other tv’s dispersed throughout the pad, you’re about to get 3+ hours of “this is boring..let’s talk about us” or “ooooh look at this outfit in my new _____ catalogue… don’t you think it would go great with my green ____ shoes?” Ladies, we don’t know and we don’t care. Another thing fellas.. She might let you watch that baseball game, but you’re gonna be logging some serious American Idol time later.

FOOTBALL AND DATING

It’s a simple one word answer. NO. We don’t go with them to the OB/GYN, they don’t need to watch football with us.

I hope this helps!!

PS… If I’m currently dating you and you read this. I’m just joking…. For the most part.

THE ALL 4-20 TEAM

Posted by HG on April 20, 2007

Today is April 20, 2007. An average Friday except to the weed culture. 4/20 means Thanksgiving in April for derms potheads. They get together in celebration of cannabis… They eat, drink, and smoke mary.

I don’t know if this is true but it seems to me that 4:20 is bigger than ever this year. Three different people told me they were having or going to 4/20 themed parties. I didn’t know or consider that 2 of these 3 people chiefed trees. This is the first year anybody I know has told me they were going to a 4/20 party.

I received 4 different chain text messages with the same general theme:

PUFF PUFF PASS! This is a cellular blunt so don’t fuck up the rotation keep this shit movin’ til the whole world hits it! Happy 4/20 

or something like this:

Row row row my blunt twist it at da end.. light it up n take a puff n pass it 2 a friend… keep dis blunt goin! Happy 420

I know text messaging is bigger than ever but this is the first time I’ve ever been texted 420 chain messages.. And speaking of chain messages, forwards, all that crap. Stop sending them to me. I hate that shit. I hate it in my email…I especially hate it on my cellphone. I wasn’t responding or forwarding the blunt messages today until I was worried that all of the 420ers knew I wasn’t “passin it to the left” and would continue to bombard me. 3 of the text messages were from people not stored in my phone. Numbers that I don’t recognize.. So I sent the last two on to some more people (that are probably pissed) and low and behold.. No more chain text. Today. I’m sure I’ll get the “If you love the Lord” or “Send this for a miracle” text tomorrow.

In honor of the people honoring 4:20, I have put together a list of some of their heroes.nate-newton.jpg

Nate Newton: The former member of the Dallas Cowboys was busted with 213 pounds of the ganja back in November 2001. 5 weeks later he got caught with 175 pounds. He ended up doing 2 1/2 years in Federal prison.

ricky_williams.jpg Ricky Williams: The shy, weed loving, helmet wearing in an interview, running back. He made headlines for violating the NFL’s drug policy 3 times, and retiring to avoid suspension. Sticky Ricky’s hoping to be reinstated into the league this fall.

stoudamire_damon.jpg

Damon Stoudamire: Mighty Mouse has had all kinds of problems with the mean green. His most memorable arrest came when he tried to get some weed wrapped in aluminium foil through an airport metal detector. Stoudamire credits a Scott Baio after-school special for helping him kick his habit.

That’s my top 3. My Michael, Magic, and Bird. My Berry, Alba, and Union. If you have anybody you think should be in the top 3 instead of who I have, lemme know.

Speaking of marijuana. This week Pro Football Weekly reported that Georgia Tech WR Calvin Johnson, Clemson DE Gaines Adams, and Louisville DT Amobi Okoye admitted to smoking marijuana. In the past players such as Warren Sapp and Randy Moss have dropped down the draft ladder due to being associated with marijuana. This is always funny to me.

If a guy has smoked some kush in the past, he’s not worthy of being drafted in the top 10, but it’s ok to go later in the first round? General managers that draft early have more scruples than gm’s that draft later? I don’t get that. It seems the only thing the league wants to do is lower the guys signing bonus. If you go lower in the draft, your chance of going to a better team increases. Wouldn’t it be more detrimental to a top pick to wind up on the Lions rather than the Rams, Steelers, or Jaguars?

Message to draftees from the NFL: If you’re a first round stud and want to make sure you end up with the Chargers, admit to blazing the buddah a few times your senior year. You’re gonna lose a little money, but you’ll play for a winner.
