Dudes! What is up! I am feeling it right now, pumped up for another year of sports excellence both on air on the radio where I am often heard goofing off yet running several flawless shows, and in the blogging world bringing you the most interesting stories in the world of sports and entertainment for 2011.
For my first blog of 2011 I should be talking about the Playoffs and the NFL. What an incredible Wild Card weekend that was. Anyone outside of Seattle that picked the Seahawks to beat the defending Superbowl champions, please email me some keno numbers to play tonight. A 7-9 team hosting an 11-5 team and winning, if this were in one of those sports movies I'd walk right out of the theater but it happened, Seattle's moving on and they're still below .500.
Now if Seattle beats Chicago at home that's when I'll worry about the sun exploding or the world falling apart like "2012" (Great movie). Maria wasn't worried, she fell asleep on my arm during the good scenes. The Jets beat Indy at home...man's game! Unlike Kansas City who hasn't been in a playoff game in nearly a decade and it showed as they got beat down at home courtesy of the Ravens. Green Bay travels to Philly to eliminate the Eagles and you know McNabb is somewhere going whew!
I can go on and on about this weekend's games or bore you guys with details from my vacation, but instead I will tell you about Andre Agassi pimping errrr I mean auctioning off a photo of his naked wife. I don't know if he was joking at first or what but Agassi certainly can't deny this occured since he was caught on video at a recent charity event in Taiwan.
"You pay more than $4,000 and I will show you a picture of my wife on my phone naked", Agassi said.
His offer got laughter and applause from the crowd then someone offered $4,000 and joined Agassi onstage to receive his "prize". Agassi shook the winner's hand and the two men hugged. Agassi's wife is tennis pro Stefi Graf who has won 22 Grand Slam titles in her career. The couple have been married nine years and have two children.
Oops! Andre probably wants that one back. "Pay more than $4000 and I will show you a picture of my wife?" Easy! Andre, who do you think you are Brett Farve? allegedly. I don't know what's more bizarre, the fact that the audience started laughing and applauding or the fact that Andre hugged the dude that bid on his wife's nude photo.
Anyone see Stefi? What's she got to say about all this? Is 4 grand enough, not enough, an insult? Bad move Dre, you can't be auctioning off your wife's nude photos. Larry Flynt thinks that was tasteless.
"What it do?" The famous words of Ladainian Tomlinson of the NY Jets. He won't mind if I borrowed them, what it do peeps? It's been awhile since my last blog as I am broadcasting live...sort of, from Atlantic City. Nothing says happy holidays like trying to win a WSOP circuit event right around Christmas. Santa's everywhere at the hotel, the strippers errrrr I mean the waitresses are decked out in santa skirts. Even the bar is serving 10 kinds of egg nog and all I could think is we are all going to hell. This old guy at our table was interviewing us instead of playing his hands. "What's your goal kid?" Most guys were saying they were there to win, to take the bracelet but I am an honest guy. If I win I would be shocked, but I told them I was there to finish in the money, I was playing to win more money then I put into the tournament. If I win I'll continue with the updates, I also have some pics posted on the Fox website on my profile.
So a lot has happened since I last blogged. Cam Newton won the Heisman Trophy as he should have. In the NBA the cream is starting to rise to the top of the league with the Miami Heat, Dallas Mavericks, and the NY Knicks all on winning streaks. Yeah, the Knicks I know I'm just as shocked as you are...eight game winning streak if you need them. In the NFL it looks as if when the New England Patriots beat the NY Jets 45 - 3 a week ago, they also removed their heart and took it with them because the Jets are a disaster right now. Miami just beat the Jets last night, the Jets at home were making Chad Henne look like Joe Montana. Oh yeah, and one of my neighbors back home was caught toting ammo at an airport recently.
Boxing promoter Don King, who has the coolest house in Las Vegas sorry Mayweather, was stopped by security at Cleveland's Hopkins International Airport for having ammunition in his carry-on luggage. Airport spokesperson Jacqueline Mayo said King was stopped by the Transportation Security Administration on Sunday night. Apparently dude had ammunition for a .38 caliber and a .357 caliber weapon in his bag. WIOI-TV in Cleveland said that King was in Cleveland to attend the funeral of his wife Henrietta who died Thursday.
What no .45 caliber? Glock 9mm not in there? How about some rounds for a nice sawed off shotgun? You have got to be kidding me. Listen, I know this is a difficult time right now for the King having lost his wife, and sure Don's made some enemies throughout his life, but you can't be packing heat going to a funeral and especially going to the airport. What does he have a death wish? I have to travel frequently and I don't even make eye contact with the TSA, those dudes are looking for any reason to strip search you...allegedly. My poor girlfriend used to love visiting new cities with me but now when I tell her we have to go to the airport, she gets sick. I'm like just do what I do and everything will be fine, don't know why she's so upset, she usually breezes right through while I get the looks. Seriously Don, why do you need ammo for at least two guns going to a funeral, who's going to be in attendance Tony Soprano? And if you need to pack heat should you even go, I mean make it a private event don't allow the public. Just some bad judgement from the King but he has my condolences.
