Don King Caught With Ammo At Airport
"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.
