“MICHAEL VICK” : LET THEM DOGS FIGHT

Posted by HG on July 27, 2007

The homeboy Eskay at Nah Right put me on to this song. First things first, it’s not actually Michael Vick rapping, it’s not a Bad Newz remex. It’s more than likely this dude, and the song is idiotic to say the least. It doesn’t matter which side of the argument you’re on regarding the Vick situation, making a song about electrocuting dogs is ignorant. Don’t believe me?

“Mike Vick” Let Them Dogs Fight

Told ya… When it comes to the Michael Vick case I didn’t tell ya. I thought it was suspicious that the feds were saying an indictment was unlikely, but I believed them when they told the league and the Falcons that no indictment was coming. That was dumb. They were leaving the door open for the eventual indictment. More on this soon..

THAT STORY WILL NOT HOLD UP THIS GAME

Posted by HG on July 22, 2007

There has to be a more appropriate time to interrupt a live news broadcast than during the phrase “raping a 31 year old New York woman”.  Yes the reporter had probably gone over his allotted time, yes the game start time was getting pushed back by a minute or two, but there’s no way in hell that you walk into that shot at that moment.  Even though I think the umpire was wrong, why was the reporter going into a rape story on the field at opening day?

WHEN DOES WILL FERRELL MAKE MOVIES?

Posted by HG on July 13, 2007

Will Ferrell will show up and entertain anybody, anywhere, anytime. Is this a new video? No, but WF has me dying with damn near anything he does. Ronnie Lott must feel the same way. If you’re a fan of Will Ferrell movies and you want to see what his next projects will be, click here.

THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE FUNNY, GEORGE STEINBRENNER

Posted by HG on July 10, 2007

A so so takeoff on the Seinfeld Steinbrenner. If Ace would have hit The Boss with the bat, then they mighta been on to something. If nothing else, the video gives me a chance to talk about Time magazine’s Ten Most Notorious Presidential Pardons.

The list was made before Scooter Libby got a pass, in anticipation of Bush looking out for his boy. To my surprise, George Steinbrenner came in at #7. I had no idea George was rollin like that.

Indicted on 14 criminal counts on April 5, 1974, the owner of the New York Yankees plead guilty to obstruction of justice and conspiring to make illegal contributions to President Richard Nixon’s re-election campaign.

Steinbrenner got let off the hook by Ronald Reagan in ’89, proving that he really is a Boss. Ah, 1989.. One year after the Yankees traded Jay Buhner.

ZIP SET, ZIP SET, ZIP SET

Posted by HG on July 9, 2007

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

Posted by HG on July 9, 2007

**UPDATE. YBB HAS MOVED. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE NEW SITE OR GO TO YOUBEENBLINDED.COM**

kwame-brown.jpg

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

Posted by HG on July 9, 2007

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.

6 WOMEN FROM THE SPORTS WORLD PLAYBOY SHOULD CONTACT

Posted by HG on July 6, 2007

**UPDATE. YBB HAS MOVED. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE NEW SITE OR GO TO YOUBEENBLINDED.COM**

The female body is a beautiful object that should be held up and glorified. It could never receive enough praise. Amanda Beard recently joined the list of athletes to pose nude for Playboy, and hopefully more follow her. Here’s the women from the sports world that the magazine should be trying to land:

Anna Kournikova: She owes us. We supported her on her looks alone, and then we continued to support her when we knew she couldn’t play. She’s essentially the Russian, tennis playing, Paris Hilton.. Trust us Anna, the magazine is the classier route.

Serena and Venus Williams: I know what you’re thinking but no… Something along the lines of them getting undressed in the locker room, and then taking to the court to pose with the rackets or in the umpire’s chair. Now back to your idea…

Erin Andrews: A sexy, former cheerleader, that had the internet and college baseball teams goin nuts is a no brainer. She has the classic bunny look and Mike Gillespie Sr. says she’s a solid 9 1/2 binoculars in his book.

Danica Patrick: She’s cute, fiesty, and fast. I can see her on the cover unzipping her fire retardant jumpsuit and inside the mag rockin nothing but her helmet. I can also see her stomping around and then shoving the photographer if she doesn’t like the pictures.

Pam Oliver: The pic doesn’t do her justice, but I didn’t want to link to the you tube clip of her in dem jeans. If she ever poses for the magazine good luck getting a copy before Joe Buck buys them all.

So there’s no confusion about the way I want these pics to turn out, here’s KG and Steph:
