RAPPING UP SPORTS IN THE LATE SIXTIES

Posted by HG on June 4, 2007

In the wrong hands, rap is a bad and dangerous thing. If you don’t know anything about sports in the late 60s and you don’t mind lyrics being completely offbeat then this is the video for you.

They’ve got 99 problems and knowing how to rap is about 98 of ’em.

ROGER GOODELL AND THE NFL= LIP SERVICE

Posted by HG on May 15, 2007

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has been hell bent on cleaning up his league and it’s roger-goodell.jpgimage. The suspensions of Chris Henry and Pacman Jones coupled with the “get your shit together” sit down with Michael Vick have been all over the headlines for weeks. NFL coaches and fans have applauded Rog’s new rules.. but are the rules really in effect?

The code of conduct seems only to apply to players that have screwed up numerous times and are on the general public’s radar. The new league toughness apparently doesn’t apply to future NFL draftees. The New England Patriots drafted known head stomper Brandon Meriweather (and traded for Randy Moss). The Chiefs, Niners, Browns, Bucs, and Bills all drafted questionable character guys (Tank Tyler, Tarell Brown, Eric Wright, Tanard Jackson, and Marshawn Lynch..gulp..respectively). The Green Bay Packers signed two undrafted prospects last week.. One guy got in trouble in college for possession of marijuana and a stolen handgun, the other failed drug tests (marijuana) in Junior College and at Ole Miss.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not some tight ass that wants to see all of these “evil doers” out of the league. I believe in second chances.. Hell, even third or fourth chances depending on the offense. I think it’s wack that Goodell grandstands like he’s “mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore” when it comes to Pacman and Chris Henry, but he’ll pose for pictures on draft day with guys that violate his code.

THE REAL RANDY MOSS

Posted by HG on April 25, 2007

Who is this guy and what has he done with Randy Moss? Watching this video you’d never know that he’s bumping traffic agents with his car and admitting to marijuana use on Real Sports. He talks about God and Mom, his Heroes, and mooning Green Bay. From the director David Bojorquez:

“he impressed the hell out of me… I don’t consider myself a huge football fan.. I’m first and foremost a filmmaker and I did my homework on him, prior to the shoot. What I learned is that the Moss portrayed by the media, is nothing like Moss the man. He’s just really a nice (extremely talented) guy who you could easily go out and have a beer with. He has a very positive approach to life and what he had to say is something I believe can be inspiring to millions.

While Randy Moss has had run ins with the law, and Terrell Owens’ problems are usually ego related, Moss always came across as the better teammate. Hopefully he hasn’t lost a step as some people suggest. If he’s really got his mind right, and he can get someone to get him the ball (through the draft or by Randy being traded or cut) I say he puts up numbers closer to his 1396 yard, 13 touchdown average his first 6 seasons rather than the 775 yard, 8 touchdown average the last 3 seasons.
