Most people would throw the handcuffs at anybody who vandalized private property, especially if they willingly confessed to doing it. However, Leodis McKelvin has decided not to press charges against the two teenage boys who did just that. Terrell Owens has put his invaluable two cents in which don't even deserve a quote on this blog. Basically, he guarantees a playoff appearance by the Bills. OK Owens..get your popcorn ready and recline in front of the big screen!

Whitney Houston smoked crack..oh wait "weed that was laced with rock cocaine". Either way the effects of the illicit drug use has terribly messed up her vocal cords. The over done lip moving drives me crazy. Yes, Alicia Keys wrote the song "Million Dollar Bill", but that doesn't mean that a Clive Davis favor would make it a hit. I can only hope that Ms. Houston stays focused and realize that she is an icon and that the diva status will remain. So there's no need to establish anything. Am I the only one who feels this way?
Chris Brown is really going on an all out publicity tour. These two pics were taken from his Twitter page. Yes, he tweets about his community service efforts while promoting his new album. The caption for the shirt "T-shirts I'm promoting"..really..DAN!!! The caption under the men in trees pic was "Check Out My Outfit". If this is suppose to impress and make people forgive and forget then it's not working. All this shows me is that the judge got it wrong. A couple of days ago he tweeted about his incompleteness with a particular someone and then linked a video featuring his song, "Changed Man" and past pics of him and Rihanna. I don't know what's going on this week, but Kanye and Chris get the total J.O.T.W. award..feel free to comment what you think the acronym stands for.

As you can see the baby had a little tantrum and is now in Jay Leno's time-out. This is not the first time I've blogged about this ignorant person. Check out the link for my 2007 VMA outburst. Kanye has managed to once again piss everyone off! I thought the whole thing was some kind of joke until I saw Beyonce's face. I knew at that point it was all Ass-Ye. Poor Taylor was clearly hurt as she should be. Beyonce has earned some more respect points for allowing Taylor to have her moment. I know Jay-Z probably cursed him out real good. A "Run this Town" collabo don't mean you can start messing with B. I'm starting to think he has a little mental issue..someone get him some meds quick!
It seems that no one was in the mood to lose. I tweeted Serena before her match against Kim and to my surprise she responded. It seemed like she was ready to get on the court and play her best game. However, just like the rain Kim had other plans. I understand having disappointment with yourself especially with Kim beating Venus 3 rounds earlier, but don't take all that frustration out on someone who was trying to do her job. Yes, it was a bad call, but would that have seriously turned things around for you..um yea no. Then today Mr Roger decides to give a few choice words to the chair umpire, now he did not say he would stick a tennis ball down his throat, but these are players that usually are very professional and have good sportsmanship through wins and losses. Maybe it was the rain or maybe PMS and twins crying all night was involved, but either way both were inexcusable.

I had to make an Obama post before heading to my Saturday outing with little African-American Tony Hawk..that would be my son. The hoopla over health care, education, the war, and the back to school speech has me shaking my head. The Marvel Comics cover of Obama implied that he's a superhero coming to save us from all evil. People seem to forget that Bush left a trail of trash and needles under the haystack before skipping joyfully out of the out house..oops White House. We are not in this mess, because of Obama! However, if Obama continues to play with fire meaning not hold true to promises made on the campaign trail, his presidency will be deemed the token black guy who took the oath. I mean that in the best way possible. No politician can keep the promises made, but you must stand firm on some issues. I feel Obama is letting his eagerness to be Roosevelt or Lincoln depending on the day distract him from being that constitutional, rational, and fair attorney/congressman that we all came to love.
The opposition to the back to school speech just shows how much hatred is out there. I mean seriously, what sane person would be opposed to their child getting a little encouragement of why they should stay in school. He wasn't coming at it from a join the Democrats crusade, it was merely a general statement of education importance. In my opinion he's trying so hard to please everybody as a lot of politicians do..well except for Bush. So here we are almost a year later and the clouds are still dark over the banking systems, the wars are still raging, the health care system still sucks, and H1N1 is still on the rise. Wow, Obama is really going to have to do more than appear on a cover with Spidey!
From the title of this post, you must think I'm questioning the induction of Michael Jordan. However, you're wrong. I'm questioning anyone who thinks that he shouldn't be. I was a little teary eyed listening to his speech which was gracious and at times classic arrogant Jordan. Even with all his scandals i.e. betting, affairs, and such, he has remained one of the most popular, well respected men of our generation. I started thinking of why this is. It simply can't be just his greatness on the court. I mean seriously we've seen a lot of skillful ball players on the hardwood.
The notion that being a professional ball player is about entertaining those that pay half their paycheck to watch you is the height of a NBA career is completely false. MJ wasn't just that guy who could entertain. He inspired people. He wasn't a Kobe Bryant that lived a privileged life in Italy or Grant Hill who came from wealth and a sports background. He came from a hard working middle class household that believed in education. Jordan was deemed to short in high school, but was determined to prove all of them wrong. Hmm..I wonder what they're thinking now. Michael "Greatness" Jordan has given so much to charity and truly believes in our children; by the way this was before the NBA forced players to participate in NBA Cares.
I wore my Js not to be the most fashionable, but to show my support and admiration for someone that seemed reachable. I salute Michael and wish him much success in all his endeavors. Hopefully, the Bobcats can pull it together and MJ can sprinkle a little magic baller dust on the players. This quote sums up why Michael IS THAT GUY!
"Don't rush to find the next Michael Jordan - there's not going to be another Michael Jordan."

My last post was in December 2008. Yes I know very sad. I think in life we get consumed with things that just take over our ability to multi-task. U-N-U Radio, hosting a talk show on BTR, columnist for CWG Magazine, and now managing artists have completely taken me away from my first love which is blogging. It's something about being free to put your opinions of politics, celebrities, and sports without anyone knocking on your door to put you in handcuffs. It's called democracy or maybe just luck. Anywho, I will add this blog into my busy schedule even if for one post a day. I can't let All Things Scorpia which kicked it all off for me in the first place go to waste.
