CHAD OCHOCINCO PLAYS THE HANDICAPPED CARD

August 29, 2009

CHAD OCHOCINCO

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco wants his first fine of the 2009 NFL season rescinded. The league fined the colorful receiver $5,000 for wearing an orange chinstrap in the Bengals game against St. Louis on  Thursday.

Ochocinco sent a Tweet on his Twitter account that said,

 

“WTF I got a damn fine already, it’s the damn preseaon, this is some bulls***!!!!”

 

Later, Ochocinco claimed to be color blind and  jokingly threatened to sue the NFL since he’s “disabled.”

DEATH BECOMES HIM

MICHAEL JACKSON BDAY CAKE

 

Today would have been singer Michael Jackson’s 51st birthday.

People around the world are celebrating the event. Tributes to Jackson are scheduled from India to Great Britain to Mexico. Spike Lee is throwing a block party in Brooklyn.

Las Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman has declared today “Michael Jackson Day.” Jackson is being awarded a star in front of the Brendan Theatres. The Palms and Planet Hollywood are throwing Michael Jackson birthday parties.

It’s been just over two months since Jackson’s death.  You know what? Death has REALLY helped The King of Pop’s image.

In life, Jackson was a reviled figure who couldn’t get a new recording deal and was assumed by a majority of people to be a pedophile. Now, record sales are booming and the debate about Michael Jackson seems to be whether to honor him with a national holiday or award him the Nobel Peace Prize.

If you think that’s hyperbole, you can click on the petition for a national holiday honoring Jacckson:  HERE

The idea of a federal holiday honoring Michael Jackson is going to be formally presented to the U.S. House of Representatives. Over half a million people have voted on a Facebook poll asking members whether or not there should be a Jackson holiday.

Wait, there’s more. Apparently, there is also a movement  to award Jackson a posthumous Nobel Prize. Jackson proponents want him awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his extensive work with charities.

BASTARD SON OF KARL MALONE MAY BE BILLS NEW LEFT TACKLE

KARL MALONE: ONCE IMPREGNATED A 12-YEAR-OLD

Did you know that NBA legend Karl Malone once got a twelve-year-old girl pregnant? It’s true. It happened when Malone was a teenaged college freshman at Louisiana Tech.

Now, the child that resulted from that coupling may be the new starting left tackle for the Buffalo Bills. Demetrius Bell is a seventh round pick who’s never taken a snap in an NFL game. Nevertheless, ProFootballtalk.com is reporting that the Bills hate tackle Langston Walker so badly that they may give his job to Bell. Both are looking to replace Pro Bowler Jason Peters who went to the Philadelphia Eagles this offseason.

Bell and his father are completely estranged. Bell says they have no relationship. The two never met until Bell was 18.

POLICE SEIZE GUNS IN SEARCH OF FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR.’S HOUSE

FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR.’S CAR WAS SEARCHED BY POLICE

For a guy who’s “not a suspect,” boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is certainly drawing a lot of police attention.

Last Sunday, there were gunshots fired at a Las Vegas roller rink. The incident occured shortly after a 24-year-old man named Quincey Williams got into a verbal confrontation with Mayweather. Williams is telling the media that Mayweather threatened him. Ten minutes later his car was shot at, receiving six bullet holes.

This week, Metro police showed up at Mayweather’s Las Vegas residence with a warrant. They seized two handguns and a bullet proof vest after searching Mayweather’s home and two cars.

An associate of Mayweather’s named “O.C.” is believed to have fired the shots. Williams says Mayweather threatened to have him “hit” after he sent the boxer a text message saying he hoped he lost his fight next month against Juan Manuel Marquez.

WHY CANADA SUCKS

August 28, 2009

 

JACQUES DEMERS

FROM DEADSPIN.COM VIA THE TORONTO STAR

National Hockey League coaching legend Jacques Demers has been appointed to the Canadian Senate. The problem?

Demers came out in 2005 and admitted he is illiterate. In two languages.

Several stories on this topic have described Demers as “functionally” illiterate. Not true. Demers is the real deal. There’s no “funtionally” about it. Dude is ILLITERATE. He told interviewers in 2006 that he had just learned to write his name “and a few other words.”

Demers described himself as “handicapped” and someone “who can’t read and write.” That hasn’t stopped Conservatives in Canada from courting Demers for public office. After all, what’s more important, learning to read and write or winning the Stanley Cup with the Montreal Canadiens?

Don’t get me wrong. The United States of America has the worst elected officials in the world. However, I’m pretty sure that every member of Congress can read and write.

THE MOST MIND BOGGLING STAT IN BASEBALL HISTORY: THE METS CURRENTLY HAVE $88 MILLION WORTH OF PLAYERS ON THE DL

METS GENERAL MANAGER OMAR MINAYA SHOWN HERE LIGHTING MORE MONEY ON FIRE

At $149 million, the New York Mets have the second highest payroll in Major League Baseball this season. The Mets trail only the crosstown New York Yankees in terms of player salaries. (The Yankees are spending $202 million on players this year.)

For that amount of cheese, Mets general manager Omar Minaya was able to accumulate 11 All Stars on his 25 man roster. Unfortunately for Minaya and Mets owner Fred Wilpon, the Mets may be the most cursed and injury-riddled team in baseball history.

How besieged have the Mets been by injuries? New York currently has a staggering 13 players on the disabled list. Arguably the top five Mets players are all currently sidelined. Here’s a mind boggling stat courtesy of the New York Post: the combined salaries of those 13 players currently on the disabled list is $88 million!

That’s right, of the Mets $149 million worth of players, $88 million worth of them are currently on the DL. The injured Mets include pitcher Johan Santana ($20 million per year), outfielder Carlos Beltran ($18.5 million), first baseman Carlos Delgado ($12 million), third baseman David Wright ($7.75 million), shortstop Jose Reyes ($6.12 million), pitcher J.J. Putz ($6 million), pitcher John Maine ($2.6 million), infielder Alex Cora ($2 million), and recently injured pitcher Oliver Perez ($12 million.)

There is only one remaining “All Star” left in the Mets starting lineup or pitching rotation-second baseman Luis Castillo. Castillo was a National League All Star with the Florida Marlins in 2002, 2003 and 2005. At this point, Castillo is an All Star in name only. In fact, he’s by far one of the worst and most overpaid players in baseball. He has hit one home run this season to go along with 34 RBI. That one home run cost the Mets $6.25 million. Nevertheless, with David Wright injured, Castillo may end up leading the Mets in hits this season.

It’s been that type of year.

BRANDON MARSHALL IS ABOUT TO GET HIS STUPID, LAZY ASS SUSPENDED

August 28, 2009

 BRANDON MARSHALL

Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall is probably going to end up getting suspended by the team. Channel 7, the ABC affiliate in Denver, has video of Marshall acting like a complete horse’s ass in practice. Marshall refuses to run during practice, intentionally drops every pass thrown to him, and even punts a ball away to make a ball boy go chase it.

The local ABC video is entitled “Brandon Marshall Makes A Mockery Of Practice” and can be seen  RIGHT HERE

Mike Florio of ProFootballtalk.com is also a lawyer. He says the Broncos have enough documented video evidence to suspend Marshall without pay right now. His article has the headline “Brandon Marshall officially is an idiot.” Florio says the Broncos should suspend Marshall immediately, pointing out Denver has “nothing to lose.” If the Broncos decision is upheld they save $517,000. If not, and they end up having to pay him anyway, Marshall is “of no value to the team’s effort to win football games” anyway. Florio concludes Marshall is “an idiot” and the Broncos should be “sending him home.”

ESPN’s AFC West blogger also “senses” a suspension coming. The video of Marshall’s antics was shot on Wednesday. Thursday he was not at practice. Although an ESPN article affords the possibility that Marshall’s hamstring may still be injured, the channel 7 report makes it clear that Marshall was bounced from practice because of his theatrics. The colorful receiver has previously demanded a trade from the Broncos.

FAN FAVORITE COUTURE TOPS UFC 102 CARD

August 28, 2009

 

 

Former UFC champion Randy Couture has always been popular with the fans. What’s amazing is he is still a competitive fighter at 46-years-old. Couture takes on heavyweight Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira Saturday night in Portland, Oregon at UFC 102. Couture is a former Oregon resident.

Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports describes Couture as “ageless.” The Couture/Noguiera match highlights another deep UFC lineup. Other fights at UFC 102 include Keith “The Dean of Mean” Jardine taking on Thiago Silva and veteran Nate Marquardt battling undefeated Demian Maia. The winner of the Marquardt/Maia bout is rumored to be in line for a middleweight title match against Anderson Silva in 2010 following Dan Henderson’s shot at the belt.

Chris Leben, Brandon Vera and former heavyweight title contender Gabriel Gonzaga are also on the UFC 102 card.
