A Few Old Observations…

This past weekend Lebron James’ mom Gloria was arrested for assaulting a valet. James felt the valet was taking too long to pull her car around. It’s reported that she swung her, purse missed and then proceeded to punch him out. Clearly King James didn’t inherit this gene for delivering the knockout blow and finishing opponents.

Weirdest fighting technique ever

-Speaking of delivering knockout blows, Detroit Piston Charlie Villanueva got into a skiff with Cleveland Cavalier Ryan Hollins Monday and had to be restrained. Sources report that Villanueva tried to get into the Cavs locker room after the game. I don’t think Chuck’s that much of a thug so my guess is he wanted to give the guys a stern talking to and then tweet about sportsmanship.

-Noticed it’s been unusually quiet lately? That’s because the Lakers are on a five game losing streak and their fans/bandwagoners have nothing to obnoxiously boast about. The buzz is whether or not the Lakers are in trouble and I’ll say this again, L.A. doesn’t give a flying Fisher about regular season games. Despite their usual focus and intensity come playoff times, I don’t see them making it back to the basketball promise land.

-With the first pick in the 2011 WNBA Draft, the Minnesota Lynx, who I feel like have had the #1 draft pick for the last decade, selected Maya Moore. Hopefully, she and the league will remain relevant.  Her male counterpart Kemba Walker is said to make his announcement tomorrow.

-Charl Schwartzel was awarded the coveted green jacket in the year’s Masters Tournament, shooting a -14 on the day. Much like the female reporter in attendance, Tiger Woods was shut out of the top spot by not by much. He finished fourth overall and has caused much discussion as to whether his dark days are over, which is why he’s the baddest golfer alive in my opinion. Even when Tiger’s not on top he’s still in the forefront of the news.


It’s time to award an entity for its foolish and/or bizarre behavior. It’s a bittersweet ceremony seeing as how we’re saying goodbye to a great. We simultaneously say farewell and present the B.O.W. award to Mr. Manny Ramirez. *Applause* *Plays Boyz II Men’s It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye to Yesterday*

Rather than being celebrated for his .312 career batting average, 1,831 RBIs and 555 homeruns, he’ll be remembered for his antics in the last few years of his career. This includes poor performances, burning bridges and, oh yeah drug usage, the reason for his abrupt decision.

I may use this Manny shrug in everyday life

So, on behalf of the B.O.W. Committee I’d like to congratulate you on your accomplishment and bid you adieu.
