Tennessee WR: "Peterson's Not Superman."

Oh word??

University of Tennessee receiver Gerald Jones was quoted as saying this about LSU's [long shot] Heisman-hopeful, Patrick Peterson:

"I watched film on them for two hours (Monday) because I was so eager. I am so ready for No. 7. I am ready for him... To be honest, I think a lot of people fear him because he’s so big. He’s 6-2, 220. He’s a pretty good athlete. He has his weaknesses, too. He’s not Superman. I’m going to give him my all, and it’s going to be a battle come Saturday."

Well. All this coming from a guy that's missed the last three games with an injury?? Has he not been watching Patrick Peterson all season?? Might get ugly for the guy.

Also, Patrick Peterson is currently #1 in the Fan vote for the Heisman. Help vote him in here!

Patrick Peterson for Heisman.

Comedy Origins: Dave Chappelle

It's crazy what you find on the internet. This morning I came across these early videos of a young Dave Chappelle getting started in the comedy business. It's wild to see how far he's gotten with his craft. The first set of videos was from an old performance on Caroline's on Broadway back in 1990. The second group come from a 1993 appearance on Comic Justice. What a difference three years makes. Still funny as shit nonetheless:

Caroline's on Broadway - 1990

Comic Justice - 1993

We really need Dave Chappelle back.

Jay-Z Won.

He really did.

Oregon State's Going Blue for Boise State

In preparation for this weekend's showdown with #3 Boise State, the coaching staff of #24 Oregon State has decided to paint their practice field blue to resemble the Broncos' playing field. Wait, what??
I mean, it seems like a good idea at first but is this REALLY going to prepare you for a team that's averaged 500+ yards of offense per game, scored 42 points per game, allowed only 18 points per game and has a starting quarterback with a 28-1 record at home??

Didn't think so.

Here's how the field came out: Oregon State's Practice Field
And here's the story behind the blue turf, if you cared: Mystery of the Blue Turf

With ALL this being said....Oregon State, did you really think this would help you win???

Boise State wins.

Ski Beatz - 24 Hour Karate School Mixtape

Dope shit from Ski Beatz dropping tomorrow. You should know him from producing tracks from Jay's Reasonable Doubt and Vol. 1 as well as the majority of Curren$y's Pilot Talk. Dopeness is sure to follow. Not to mention the teaser is another ill video from Creative Control:

I'm coppin and you should too.

NBA 2K11 - MJ's Greatest Moments

In the latest spot for NBA 2K11, Derrick Rose, Andre Iguodala, Josh Smith, Russell Westbrook and Rajon Rondo debate MJ's Greatest Moments. Damn I can't wait for this game.
"Can't eat sushi in Utah, brother--landlocked."

Goofy commercial, epic game.
Just come out already.

Edit: This vid just in. Rondo'd.
I gotta get this game.

Sunday's Best Featuring Bears/Cowboys & Jets/Pats

First off, shouts to the Bears. After last weeks loss close game win the Lions, not many people thought we would hang with the Cowboys yesterday. And we won. One of the main reasons we won was this amazing one-handed catch courtesy of Devin Hester:

Oooh, that's nasty. [Wayne voice]

But the defense really played well as did Jay Cutler. The Cowboys have to be nervous now after going 0-2. Superbowl, what Superbowl?? Wade Phillips is definitely showing sadness today.

The other play that caught my attention was the insane one-hander from Randy Moss versus the Jets:
The ONLY reason I'm putting the Hester catch over Moss' is because we won our game....but that's fair right???

One other thing, I'm not sure if Vick is for real about being cool with being Kolb's back up but I AM glad he balled out against Detroit yesterday. I hope he gets to keep the starting spot.

Saints/Niners tonight. Hopefully we have a good good.
Don't bet on it though.

Gucci Mane feat. Pharrell & Nicki Minaj - Haterade

I can't lie. When I first heard Gucci Mane back on So Icey way back when, I never thought he'd still be making relevant music in 2010. I was wrong. His latest joint brings together the unlikely combination of Gucci, Pharrell Williams and Nicki Minaj. Tell me you saw this one coming because I didn't. The song came out really dope though. Maybe I just like it because Nicki avoids all the voice changes. Check it out:

Also, The Appeal: Georgia's Most Wanted coming on the 28th.

Ray Lewis Will Kill You.

Photobucket, that's not a bad joke. He really will kill you.

Arguably one of the best linebackers in NFL history shows Dustin Keller exactly why you never cross the middle when you're playing the Baltimore Ravens.

This gives me flashbacks from last year's Ochocinco hit.

Moral of the story: Don't fuck mess with Ray Lewis.

RIP Tupac.

Can't believe it's been 14 years since the death of Tupac. One of the greatest to ever do it. RIP. Probably my favorite Pac joint, So Many Tears:

Rest in peace.

So What?? The Bears Still Won!

Yeah I was a struggle. And yeah, I also know it was against the turrible Lions. And yeah, I ALSO know that that probably would have been called a catch in most games...but not this one. In case you don't know what "catch" I'm talking about, here you go:
Bullet dodged. I mean, take it as you will, but people are saying it was the right call. I like Calvin Johnson, I like Ndamukong Suh. But I'm a Bears fan. And where I'm from, a win is a win is a...guess what, WIN.
Hey Lions fans:

[Note: Coming soon is my post about my first ever Redskins/Cowboys game in DC. Wild time.]

College Football Picks: Week 2

If you've ever read this blog before, you know I gotta start with LSU. We open up SEC play today against Vandy. All I can say is I hope you brought your beer and Crown Royal because that's a W. But that's a given.

Now onto the big games. And there are some pretty big ones this week:

(12) Miami (FL) at (2) Ohio State // The first big test for Heisman candidate Trevor Pryor will come from an explosive Miami team. Hard game to call but I'm goin with the U. Oh, and Lebron's gonna be there.
  • Week 2 Picks:
  1. (17) Florida State at (10) Oklahoma// I'm going Oklahoma. Too much of the team came back from last year...and I've never really cared for Florida State. [Besides Peter Warrick.]
  1. Michigan at Notre Dame // I'm not sold one way or another but I think Notre Dame's depth might trump Michigan's athleticism. Prove me right Dewey.
  2. (18) Penn State at (1) Alabama // The only reason this is a big game is because it's two ranked teams. Bama, as much as it pains me to say this, should have no issue with Penn State. [Note: Shouts to Eddie Lacy from my former high school, Dutchtown High.]
  • Sleeper Game
(22) Georgia at (24) South Carolina // This game will be interesting since UGA will be without All-SEC receiver A.J. Green. A win without him would be big for the confidence of the team...and that's what I'm predicting.

This is the last weekend of the campaign so I might not catch my first game until the afternoon. No matter what though, I know I'll be in front of a TV by 3:30 like:

College football, I totally get you NOWWWWW!!

More Genius From Kanye

Recently, putting in crazy hours on the campaign has kept me away from updating my blog as often as I'd like and as a result I've missed out on blogging about Kanye's music-filled Summer. I hate to use work as an excuse but it's for real. He's been MURDERING as of late and since the RIAA has been yanking my download links for all of his new stuff, I figured I'd post a couple of my favorite early joints from Kanye along with their inspirations.

When I first got into Kanye I came across two joints in which he and Consequence go back in forth on classic hip hop songs all while maintaining the same rhyme scheme and meter of the originals -- get what I'm saying?? I know it sounds crazy but check em out and it'll make more sense.

A Tribe Called Quest - Electric Relaxation [1994]
Kanye West & Consequence - Electric Relaxation '03
Download: Electric Relaxation '03

Souls of Mischief - '93 'Til Infinity
Kanye West & Consequence - '03 'Til Infinity
Download: '03 'Til Infinity

I mean, no knuck but that's pretty damn impressive. Not to mention they both came out dope. It goes to show why Kanye's one of my all-time favorites and why Consequence in underrated as hell.

Not sure if you can tell by now but...

Cold Beer?? Check.

It's football season.

So by default that also makes it beer season. This invention is the perfect addition to any tailgate or house party. It's a beer caddy that's made completely of ice. Yea, just ice. I mean, it's not easy to carry and it's eventually gonna melt but it's still pretty dope. Check it out.
I mean....I want one.

For real.

Kenny Powers is Back.

...on September 26th.

I don't know about you, but I can't wait.

But just in case you're wondering why I'm so excited...

Get excited.
