REGGIE BUSH KICKIN’ IT WITH BECKHAM

Posted by HG on June 27, 2007

I’m gonna have to see the commercial, but the Bush/Becks mash-up is off to a slow start in my book. The comraderie seems forced and Beckham’s leprechaun voice is irritating. The two things I did take away from this video, 1) David Beckham makes Reggie Bush look like Earl Campbell, and 2) Women will enjoy the commercial more than men.

For the long version and some uncomfortable dialogue, click here.

“THE PROFESSOR” OF SOCCER

Posted by HG on June 21, 2007

Just because he has moves like that doesn’t mean he’ll be a star, but little Marc Nicklin is definitely crowd pleasing. When ESPN starts airing Street Soccer I’m sure this youngin’ will be featured.

SAY HELLO TO MAYKEL GALINDO

Posted by HG on June 19, 2007

I’m sure the first thing 98% (with a sample error of +/- 2%) of you said is “who the hell is Maykel Galindo?” I’m glad you asked.. MG is a striker for USA Chivas in the MLS. He defected from Cuba to the United States in 2005, by himself, without telling his family and friends. I had never heard of Galindo until today, and I’ll admit, the only times I see soccer being played are 1. The World Cup, 2. FIFA on playstation, and 3. If I’m driving by the park in the evening or on a weekend.

Galindo’s hard upbringing in rural, destitute Cuba combined with his fight to make it in the U.S. have helped him to identify with Tony Montana. He doesn’t associate himself with the coked-out murdering Montana but rather the smart, ambitious, ruthless Tony. Maykel sees the film as a “Cuban guy who has to fight to survive”. Yeah.. And Jaws is just about a hungry fish.

I wonder if Galindo goes with Scarface themed trash talking on the field. I would probably die of laughter if I heard Maykel say “Fuck David Beckham and fuck the fuckin’ Freddy Adu. Fuck them all. I’ll bury those cocka-roaches.”

SOCK’ER MOM

Posted by HG on April 19, 2007

Sports parents are notorious for trying to live vicariously through their children. Whether it’s Marv Marinovich, Damir Dokic, or just some jackass parent hopped up on vodka and espresso, mom and dad can ruin the fun for their kids. Take this lady in Nebraska for example:

On their drive home the girl flubbed the lines her mom had drilled into her on how to improve her game, so the mother slapped her daughter. The mom yelled at the girl to get out. When she did, her mom drove off.

I don’t know what kind of lines the mother was giving her daughter to memorize, but moms apparently had some “lines” of her own if she thought it was a good idea to leave her child on the side of the highway. This outstanding citizen was only ticketed for neglect. I guess they don’t have idiocy on the books in Lincoln.
