R.I.P. Chris Henry


Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry passed away this morning a day after falling from truck following an argument with his fiance. The situation is really messed up especially after Henry was turning his troubled life around since his rough 2007 season. Henry was given a second chance by the Bengals and seemed to have positively taken advantage of the opportunity. He even got the word "Blessed" tattooed on his neck before the 2009 season.

In a preseason interview with the Associated Press Henry was quoted as saying, "I kind of felt like I dug myself out of the hole and started doing the right things. People say, 'How you feeling now Chris? You doing all right?' I just tell them I'm blessed. That's why I got it."

He was 26.

"I'm Thinkin About Tryin for a ScholarSHIPPP...."

This is possibly my most random blog entry ever but it's aight. So I was watching one of my favorite movies, Pineapple Express last night when I realized there was a reference to another one of my favorite movies, The Breakfast Club. It's pretty subtle, but me and @jinxington always laughed at the part when it came up in Breakfast Club. "I'm tryin out for a scholarSHIPPP!" hahaha
The Breakfast Club - 1985

Pineapple Express - 2009

Another reason why Pineapple Express is a classic.

Music of the Moment - December 15, 2009

I mean, I'm pretty sure that it's always a good thing to get an Eminem feature but you must realize you run the risk of getting Renagade'd. But I can also say that if Em wasn't on this track, I probably wouldn't have been so hype about it. I'll even go ahead and throw it out that Em might have outshined Wayne on this one, but you can decide. It's rumored to be the most recent song from Rebirth to leak and we might even see it on Relapse 2. Check out the new joint from Wayne and Eminem Drop the World.

Lil Wayne feat. Eminem - Drop the World

Download: Drop the World

I'm not mad.

You're Doing it Wrong...

This is the perfect example of how NOT to play Who Wants To Be a Millionaire:
Cole, you stupid.


Watch Out Snuggie. It's the...Necky???

Seriously, what will they think of next?? This really looks like the Scarf Edition Snuggie and it's just as weird. It's like part-bib, part-turtleneck and overall ridiculous. But at least it protects you from "chilly gaps and gaping holes." hahaha Ladies and gentlemen, I present, The Necky.
Gimme dat Necky??

Proof that people will buy anything.

Music of the Moment: Foo Fighters - My Hero Original & Acoustic

I mean, you pretty much have to like this song.

Well, you don't have to like it but it's still a dope song. My Hero by the Foo Fighters always seems to come up on Twitter for Music Mondays so I feel like this post is long overdue. I've also always been a fan of acoustics so I included the live performance from the Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn. #musicmonday lives.
Foo Fighters - My Hero

Foo Fighters - My Hero Acoustic, Live on Craig Kilborn Show

Plus, it was the theme song for Varsity Blues and even Not Another Teen Movie. How can you argue with that???

[Note: Happy Born Day to @jinxington and @CaesBrutJesJud. Eat, Drink, be (-_-)]

Shit's Disgusting. Come on Bulls...Seriously.

I don't know what to say. Seriously, I'm at a loss for words. And that doesn't happen often. We started the week by losing to the "worst team in NBA history" then follow it up by getting DRUG by the Hawks in Atlanta. This makes no sense. We're the third most valuable team in the league and we're still performing like this. We've actually lost our last four games to the Cavs, Raptors, Nets and Hawks. It's embarrassing, really. So after this week of disappointments, I'm continuing my ongoing push to get Lebron to Chicago next year. Why go to the Knicks?? Don't go to sorry ass New Jersey. Come to the historic Chicago Bulls. I mean, either you or Chris Bosh. #kanyeshrug

Once again...this shit's not gonna cut it.
We play the Warriors tonight and I really can't take a 5th straight loss.

Music of the Moment - December 8, 2009

Found this video for #musicmonday yesterday and it's from the band Coconut Records. I know the name sounds kinda weird, but they're a pretty straightforward band. One interesting fact about the band is that they're lead by actor Jason Schwartzman from Funny People and I ♥ Huckabees. The first of the videos isnt' an official video, but it's a collection of clips set to the band's song Nighttiming from their 2007 album of the same name. The second is the video for their single Microphone from their album Davy, released earlier this year. Check em out:


See, not all actors are bad musicians...and vice versa.

asamp was...uh...MISINFORMED

So I guess Tebow IS human. And the only reason I have a picture of him for this post and not a jubilant Alabama team is because I REFUSE to put any pictures of Bama celebrating on my blog.

I refuse.

But even with that, good luck to the Tide. SEC superiority all day.

Oh yeah, and Ingram for Heisman. Early.

Finally. Florida vs. Bama

So yeah, I can't be the only person treating this game like the true National Championship. The SEC Championship is being played today at here in Atlanta with #1 Florida playing #2 Alabama. It's pretty hard to predict this one, but I'm going with Florida. Even without dumb ass Carlos Dunlap I think that Florida's D will be too much. McElroy hasn't really been tested on a stage like this, while Tebow has done this pretty much every year he's played. Mark Ingram's health could be an issue for Bama even though reports say he's going to play. Plus, Trent Richardson's not a bum either. I also feel like the matchup between Julio Jones and Joe Haden will be big also. But like I said, Saban and all, the Tide just won't have enough to beat Florida.

Sorry Bama fans.

But hey, at least you can sit back and imagine this actually happened...

That would have been nasty.

Ron-Ron Luvs Tha Henny // Tiger Woods Apologizes

Ron Artest is a wild dude.

He recently admitted that he used to drink Hennessy at halftime of basketball games during his time with the Bulls. Well damn. I don't know whether to be upset or to applaud the sheer ability to drink a hard alcohol at halftime and then finish out a game. But at the same time I'm kind of mad because this might explain his mediocre play in Chicago which lead to us trading him after just a little over two years. Ron-Ron must have been on that Keon Clark "never play a game sober" tip. He even said that when Ben Wallace comes around, he stays on guard and is still in the mood to fight him. I don't really care though. Ron Artest is one of my favorite athletes [Yes I said it] and not only because we share a birthday. He's a good entertainer, man. Can't rap to save his life though.

[Note: Shouts to @jayredg for the heads up.]

Now, on to Tiger.

I know he cheated and all, but still. It's never fair for the media and the sports community to come down on a person so tough. He admitted he was wrong, asked for forgiveness and also asked that we move on. Can we please?? One thing that I will say about the Tiger situation is that, right or wrong, he made a solid point. In his statement on he said,

"No matter how intense curiosity about public figures can be, there is an important and deep principle at stake which is the right to some simple, human measure of privacy....Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn't have to mean public confessions."

No matter which side of the scandal you're on, you have to agree with that.
Did Tiger cheat? Yes. Was he wrong? Yes.
Should the worldwide media have a field day with it? No.

[Note: I don't wanna hear anything when Tiger starts bussin ass next year on the tour. Hold your head, Tiger.]

The Dumb Athlete of the Week Award Goes To...

Carlos Dunlap.

Yes, you, Carlos Dunlap.

You have been awarded the first ever Dumb Athlete of the Week Award for receiving a DUI this morning after being found passed out at a stoplight at the wheel of your Chrysler. Not only were you arrested... but FOUR DAYS before the National SEC Championship?? #comeonson And Carlos, we all know you're not a bum on the field. I mean, you were the Defensive MVP of the National Championship last year! Yikes. The University of Florida hasn't said whether or not you'll be suspended for the game, but it's pretty likely. Not only that, but it also shows poor judgement in the eyes of NFL scouts. You can't be serious, man. I have nothing else to say.

Mr. Dunlap, you, are the Dumb Athlete of the Week.
