IS DAVE CHAPPELLE GETTING GOVERNMENT BAILOUT MONEY?

DAVE CHAPPELLE: NEEDS STIMULUS MONEY?

If  a Los Angeles comedy club owner has his way, part of President Obama’s $787 billion stimulus package will go to comedian Dave Chappelle. Jamie Masada of the Laugh Factory says he wants to start a comedy tour to visit the nation’s most economically depressed area.

 The proposed tour would travel the country by bus and hand out sandwiches and coffee in a “town hall setting.” Masada says several big name comedians including Chappelle, Dane Cook and Paul Rodriguez have already agreed to participate in the tour. He needs $700,000 to “gas up the buses” to make it happen. Why would the country want to give money to a comedian (Chappelle) who walked out on a $50 million contract from Comedy Central? Simple, to make poor people laugh.

Masada says he realizes his proposed project is way down on the list for stimulus funding, pointing out he doesn’t have any lobbyists. However, he says he’s already written President Obama and “Nancy-what’s-her-name (Pelosi)” about the project.

You can go to the Laugh Factory website and sign a petition for Congress to fund Masada’s “Economic Cheer-Up” package.

CHRIS BOSH WHINES ABOUT GETTING TORCHED BY SHAQ

SHAQ IS BACK

Shaquille O’Neal torched Toronto Raptors for 45 points Friday night in a 133-113 victory for his Phoenix Suns. It was the soon-to-be-37-year-old Shaq’s biggest offensive game in six years.

Now Toronto All-Star center Chris Bosh is whining about being lit up by an old man. Bosh says the only reason O’Neal was able to score 45 is that he cheats. Bosh accused Shaq of “just camping in the lane” and says the referees never called the three second rule.

THE NBA HATES AMERICA

DWYANE WADE

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade has been forced by the NBA to stop wearing his customized “Band-Wades.” Wade had recently taken to wearing the band-aids under his previously injured left eye during Heat games.

The league says the “Band-Wades” are promotional in nature and violate its dress code even though the latest version features an American flag. That hasn’t stopped an upcoming promotion by the Heat where they are selling the “Band-Wades” for a cost of three for $5. The proceeds will go to the “Wade’s World Foundation” charity.

BOBBY JINDAL MADE UP KATRINA STORY

GOV. BOBBY JINDAL

According to the website TPMMUCKRAKER.com, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal “straight-up lied in his terrible sing-song response speech.” Jindal delivered the official Republican response to Barack Obama’s address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday. During Jindal’s speech, he told a story about overcoming government bureaucracy during Hurricane Katrina. Unfortunately, the story Jindal described about a Louisiana sheriff screaming at a government bureaucrat with Jindal in the room apparently never happened.

Even mainstream media organizations like CBS News are now questioning Jindal’s story. Political pundits and media critics were already asking the question, “How bad was Jindal?” BEFORE he was thought to have lied.

APPARENTLY THE BOSTON MEDIA IS TIRED OF NEW YORK GETTING ALL THE CREDIT FOR PERFORMANCE ENHANCING DRUGS

February 28, 2009

Thomas Hicks won just one more marathon after the '04 Olympics.

1904 OLYMPIC MARATHON WINNER THOMAS HICKS

The Boston Globe had a crazy story this week about the first known drug cheat in the history of the Olympics. The Globe seems almost PROUD of the fact that the Boston area can lay claim to the origins of performance enhancing drugs in the Olympics. The Globe even whines about how “the media currently fixate on a certain pinstriped athlete in New York.”

Thomas Hicks was a marathon runner from Cambridge, Massachusetts who participated in the 1904 Olympics in St. Louis. He virtually collapsed during the race but an Olympic official revived Hicks with a concoction that contained egg whites, brandy and strychnine. Strychnine is the primary ingredient in rat poison.

Ordinarily, you wouldn’t consider rat poison a PED, but even in 1904 athletes and trainers were looking for chemical methods to improve athletic performances. During the early 1900’s it was known that strychnine “raises neuromuscular sensibilities.” Hicks was given 1/60th of a grain of strychnine. He won the 1904 Olympic marathon because of rat poison (even though it almost killed him.)

MAURICE CLARETT HAS A PRISON BLOG

MAURICE CLARETT

Maurice Clarett may be the most famous running back of the 2000’s who never played a down in the NFL. Deadspin.com revealed today that Clarett has hit a new low. He’s now a blogger. Despite still serving a prison sentence, the former Ohio State star is now blogging about his experiences.

Clarett was carrying four guns, a hatchet and a bottle of Grey Goose at the time of his 2006 arrest.He was ridiculed by blogs for the incident which also featured mace, spike strips, a stun gun, a bulletproof vest and the Israeli mob. Clarett’s training habits may have been the worst in the history of sports. He immortalized the phrase, “I gotta get my goose on,” in reference to a Tom Friend article which described Clarett’s need to drink vodka during practice.

Sadly, Clarett’s blog doesn’t feature a “photos” section. It might look something like this:
