Chicago....Cools...the Heat

Oh has come to an end...The Miami Heat had a 27 game winning streak come to an end last night at the hands of a short handed Chicago Bull team.

Might be a blessing in disguise for the Heat all that pressure of the win streak is off and they can now concentrate on the more important issue:  winning another championship!

Hoops Before "Hoes"?

This is too funny...

From our friends at


Kris Humphries
I Chose Basketball
Over Kim's Depo

0321_kris_humphries_getty2_articleKris Humphries is true to the adage, Hoops before Hoes ... and that's precisely why he was a no-show at Kim Kardashian's deposition.

You'll recall ... Kris' lawyer, Lee Hutton, talked about Kris' constitutional right to look Kim in the eyes as she testified under oath about their short-lived marriage.

So why, you ask, did Kris miss that golden opportunity? Sources close to the BBaller tell TMZ ... Kris had practice and travel obligations Tuesday, as Kim sat for her marathon, 9-hour depo. He had just finished a game Monday night in Michigan, had practice Tuesday and was traveling later that day to Dallas for a Wednesday game.

We're told Kris is adamant about one thing -- attending the May 6 trial, even if it conflicts with the playoffs. So hoes don't always come in second.

If You Don't Have the Proof....

A big high five is due to our man Michael Jordan.   Seems this female who brought a paternity suit against "MJ" ....for a child fathered 16 years ago...has had second thoughts and has withdrawn her suit.

Mr. Jordan, a fierce competitor on the basketball court....counter sued this female.  

Obviously,  she had no proof.   She was going after the money.

Good for you Michael!

Not...Above the Law

This story is both interesting and disturbing.  A high profile High School football program...underage drinking...alcohol abuse...and rape.

And to top it all off....a cover-up?  By the local police?

Here's the reported by BBC:

Steubenville Ohio school footballers guilty of rape

Trent Mays (l) and Ma'lik Richmond in court, 15 March 2013 Some locals said members of the football team thought they were above the law

Related Stories

Two high school football players in the US state of Ohio have been found guilty of raping a 16-year-old girl.
Trent Mays, 16, and Ma'lik Richmond, 17, attacked the girl after a drunken party in the town of Steubenville. Both wept as the verdict was read out.
The case came to light via text messages, online videos and social media posts made the morning after, attracting nationwide attention.
The two were sentenced to at least a year in juvenile detention.
Mays was sentenced to another year for taking pictures of the naked victim, and the judge said both might stay in detention until they reach 21.
The case was thrust into the national spotlight after attention by bloggers and the hacker activist group Anonymous.
Some claimed that the community - including local police - had sought to cover up the crime to protect the accused, who were members of a celebrated high school football team.
Protesters in masks outside the court Online activists brought the case to national attention amid allegations of a cover-up
The case focused attention on teenage alcohol abuse and highlighted the increasing use of social media as evidence in court, the BBC's Matt Wells in Washington says.
Last August, Trent Mays and Ma'lik Richmond left a party with a 16-year-old girl and sexually abused her, first in a car and then at a friend's house.
The victim was so drunk she had no memory of the attack, but prosecutors said she had been "treated like a toy".
There was no physical evidence, but details of the evening emerged from text messages, tweets and humiliating photos posted on the internet by the attackers and other party-goers.
The case caused a bitter divide in Steubenville, a small and economically depressed former steel town that had immense pride in its high school football team, known as the "Big Red".
Some of the witnesses were friends of the accused who gave evidence against them in return for immunity from prosecution.

The State of UGA Basketball

Yes ...this is a football school. is secondary.  But I watched this game live.  Georgia gave their all...had a chance to win at the end.

And then this.

Seems Georgia made a deal with the "football gods"....they're a pretty premier program.

But...the "basketball gods"....seem to frown upon Athens when it comes to winning meaningful games.

Things From the Week-end that Was

Interesting week-end in this small, southern, college town.  The weather was simply "drop dead" gorgeous.  No rain...temps in the 70's....

Grilling weather.  And man did I grill!   Perfect conditions.  No cold...shucks,  there weren't even any annoying flies.

So I did beef ribs,  sausage, chicken, sliced turkey drumsticks....and topped  it all off with grilled shrimp kabobs.  Threw  in a pot of black-eyed peas...and you might as well say...we had a feast.

But that was then.  Now, we embark on a new week.

Some "stuff"....from the week-end that was:

Daylight Savings Time....Again

My least favorite time of year....

A re-post from years past:


Daylight Savings Time.....

To be quite blunt.......Daylight savings time sucks! Tomorrow....check at 2 am we will set our collective clocks forward 1 hour. Why? Our time pieces in our body will have to adjust needlessly for this ridiculous attempt to cheat mother nature.

How......exactly....... are we .......saving......daylight? And.....what are we saving daylight from? Is .....daylight ..... in danger? Does......daylight.....need to be rescued? Oh, my bad. We're not saving the daylight from an unknown enemy........We are saving daylight........for future use. So....should we freeze it ........or can it? Or put the daylight in a bank ....and earn interest.

Now, personally, I happen to like daylight. And for years now, I have done what most Americans have done for the last 30 years.......In March........I save an hour..........of daylight.
Only to give it back in October! And when I give it back........I have no return on my investment. I just........don't get it. Spring forward...........fall backward......why? And for.......whom?

Daylight.........could care less.......In a 24 hour day..........daylight shines for how ever many hours.......regardless if we humans manipulate a doggone clock.

Meanwhile.........the moon is watching all of this........and thinking........."Hey....what about "moonlight" savings time....... We want equal representation". We too..... want to be saved.

Imagine that..............then again.......just set that darn clock ahead that hour of daylight........and be a zombie for a few days before your body adjusts......

Daylight Savings Time............

A "Dog Day"...Night

Strange night.   A Georgia basketball team beat Kentucky.   The big blue.  The defending National Champs.

The University of Georgia views its men's basketball team as an after thought.  Something to bide ones time before the main course....FOOTBALL.

Georgia is a mediocre a so-so conference.

But hey...they beat Kentucky:


Finish with flourish: Georgia tops Kentucky in last home game

A Fool...and His Money

Allen Iverson was an exceptional basketball player.  Gifted with speed, quickness.   Played every game as if it were his last.

For this we applaud you, Mr. I.   But your sense of business?

How can you make millions....and lose millions more?

Why wasn't there anyone in the "posse"....that merely suggested, " Hey Mr. I....why don't you put a little in a savings account...and say... make 6%?

Or buy some land....or rental property?

Or invest in companies like IBM or Microsoft?  Instead of buying gold chains and cars and clothes?

But here we are ...Mr. I.

You are so....broke!

From Business Insider:

The Bank Is Selling Allen Iverson's Foreclosed Home In Atlanta For $2 Million

Allen Iverson is broke despite making more than $150 million during his career. Because of his financial issues, the bank has foreclosed on two of his homes.
 Most recently, Iverson's home in Atlanta was foreclosed on and now the bank is selling it for $2 million, according to

Iverson's home in Atlanta has six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a pool, and a beautiful outdoor porch area.
In March 2011, Iverson lost his home in Colorado to foreclosure.
