A Little Something, Something From Other Blogs and Fanatics Old School Dance Team Prep:Updated
Good evening Gents. Not much new to report. I’ve been doing a little blog hopping this evening and found a few things that might pique your interest. At the website 7 seconds or mess, there is a podcast interview with a guy nicknamed KD and he says some things of interest about the Knicks. Gotcha Peaceman. No it is not your KD, it’s a sportswriter named Kelly Dwyer for Yahoo Sports. I love how 7som uses video and audio on its site. Hey Peace, maybe you or another Fanatic would like to do a little Blog Radio show. As I said a long time ago, my voice is only good for print and I don’t think fast enough to do a talk show. But that would be a nice feature. Check it out.
Then there are those hanging on LeBron’s every turd. He says it and they will come, in more ways than one, Tman. Now, he shoots down the loyalty argument as a reason for staying in Cleveland because his loyalty is to the city of Akron as a Native Son, not necessarily to the Cleveland franchise. So does that mean he’s coming to New York? Well, he keeps keeping the door open for a move. Wade is keeping the door open too, but he is mentioning New Jersey as the attractive team with both cap space and players for a Championship run. It’s business folks. Are they using and punkin’ New York like Kidd and Hill?
I also see that IGM was playing the name game at Posting and Toasting where, to pass the time away, they asked readers to think of a new name for the Knicks. Of course, most Fanatic fans are trying to be a lot more positive than me, so there were some nice names. My most favorite and least appropriate was the New York Defenders.
I am not writing anything about Michael Beasley except to wish him luck in this part of his life’s journey.
Check out the new poll on the side bar. RoCk tHe VoTe.
Update: Talk About Getting Into A Mess In 7seconds or Less — Poor Plax.
I must admit that I have not really paid attention to the Plaxico Burress situation. I really couldn’t take listening to another athlete go over the edge of arrogant idiocy. Last week, I heard his attorney say that his client was being sentenced as a celebrity for a mistake that no one else would go to jail for. Yeah, right, I thought, lawyers will say anything. But then I saw this E60 clip with Plaxico explaining the incident. Twenty months to two years in jail for that? That’s unbelievable, crazy and excessive. Unbelievable. They’re going to spend our taxpayer money to jail a fool instead of a criminal. Unbelievable.
And I couldn’t believe how self-righteous Cris Carter was in the next clip. I like Cris Carter. He has always been a class act; but he who throws stones better not be doing it from a glass house. He said that Burress was not remorseful. Remorse? How much more fu*king remorseful can you be when you are going to jail for a stupid accident that injured no one but himself? Two years for carrying a gun? Two years for shooting yourself in the leg? C’mon. Where are those second amendment folks now? And for the record, I am not definitely in favor of gun control, but this result is ridiculous.
With that said, I tried to find the “Burress Explanation Clip” to post directly onto this site; instead I found the following on YouTube and as disgusted and perplexed as I am at that plea deal, I couldn’t resist making you laugh one more time.
KNICKS FANATICS OLD SCHOOL DANZE TEAM TRYOUTS COMING SOON!!
I’m thinking about posting a competition for our very own Fanatics Old School Dance Team. We select ten old school honeys from a group of twenty. So far invitations have been accepted by Sophia Loren, Pam Grier, Jane Mansfield, Rita Moreno, Tamara Dobson, Rita Hayworth, Dorothy Dandridge, Lena Horne, Jane Russell, Raquel Welch, Angela Bassett, Josephine Baker, Marilyn Monroe, and Diahann Carroll. I need to send out more invitations. Do you guys have any ideas? ( I’d put my ten old schoolers up against any ten Newbies in the world, including Miami’s Dance Champions. LOL!!!)
`Post Up, those are great suggestions. I will send out an invitation to each one. Hedy Lamar is fine, but she is so old school that they didn’t see flesh as a virtue in those days. I can’t find a good pic that will prove she would wear our skimpy dance costumes. Still, she is special.`
