Barkley on the addition of Ron Artest to the Houston Rockets: “Ron Artest is a really good player who says crazy things. (The Rockets) could win the championship, but he could blow that team up any day now.  Ron Artest is going to have to prove it to me, that’s no disrespect, he’s got a track record and his track record is up and down.  He’s going to have to prove if he can keep his head together for the entire season. I think a person who has issues always has issues.”

Terrelle Pryor: The Rebirth of Sick

Fell asleep watching Juice and somehow dreamed of Terrelle Pryor replacing Omar Epps as GQ. I’m sure you remember Q teetering between high school rock head and aspiring world class DJ. His nemesis was Tupac’s Bishop. Bishop was straight crazy and tried to bring down the whole crew–dead or alive–and ended up dead himself.

Please Keep Jennifer Hudson In Your Thoughts

Posted in Blogroll on October 27th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

Oh my God. This really hurts to post this, but they’ve reportedly found Jennifer Hudson’s 7 yr. old nephew Julian King…slain in the back of a SUV trunk. Friday, as you all know, Hudson’s Mother, Darnell Donerson, and Brother, Jason Hudson were shot to death on the south side of Chicago. William Balfour is the person of interest and the estranged boyfriend of Jennifer’s sister Julia Hudson.

This was after an extensive search where she offered a 100,000 dollar reward…

I can’t post anymore. I’m about to throw up. I can’t wait until they get this cat in the pen…

Isiah Thomas Rushed to Hospital In Suspected Sleeping Pill Overdose

Posted in Blogroll on October 24th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

There’s a report coming out of Purchase, NY that Isiah Thomas has overdosed on sleeping pills. Police were called to his home around midnight last night and he was rushed to the hospital unconscious but was breathing. Zeke is still in the hospital. Apparently his stomach was pumped of 10 Lunesta sleeping pills (he had a prescription so police aren’t pursuing an investigation regarding anything criminal). Don’t jump the gun and presume this is a suicide attempt as of yet but the number of pills being reported is an indicator. The Knicks have declined comment. Stories like this should not be reported until all facts are clear. I’ll post more on this as it develops.

The Crazy Stuff People Do So Barack Does Not Get Elected

Posted in Blogroll on October 24th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

The Ashley Todd story is a hoax. Makes you wonder just how many people wanted this ridiculous story to be true but it also shows folks are losing their damn minds as election day approaches. Self mutilating yourself with a backwards B to bring negative publicity to Barack Obama is laughable but she must be disturbed to do something like this. I could care less about her personally because of her actions, but as a father, I hope she gets some help. Don’t be shocked if more craziness goes down the next 11 days so please, please, please be careful out there people.

Oh…another thing…if you are voting for Barack, keep the buttons and pins off your person because some fear Republicans are going to ensure an old ass law is enforced prohibiting public endorsing of a candidate in the polling place.

Then there’s this from Atlanta. Miranda what ya’ll got goin’ on down there?…
