- Your going into a fancy neighborhood, probably not dressed like a priest.
- Rich people always take security precautions, there are bound to be cameras.
- Nba players are almost ALWAYS with a posse. How many "Homeboys" are going to be in the house with him?
- Nba players are not small dudes. If you slip up, they could easily strong arm you.
- Usually these are gated communities. Are you going to be able to have a fast getaway?
If you really thing about it though, in this type of robbery, the risk/reward factor is better than say....if you was to rob a bank. I am not sure was the percentage is on bank robbers getting caught, but I am guessing it is high.
You have to suspect the Walker and Curry incidents are somehow connected. Same city, same target, same methods. Time for these players to set up their homes like movie and rock stars. You don't see this shit happening to Ozzy Ozborne or George Clooney. That's cause you have to have an Army to get past those security systems. Did anyone see MTV cribs and Big Boi's security? He took his precautions and even told the camera, "Don't even try it."
I'm just saying, I know these athletes think the are invincible. They are finding out that in the blink of an eye that they can be helpless. This is definitely a wake up call.

Tour De France- It looks as if like baseball, in cycling if you aint using you aint trying. For years Lance Armstong has battled rumors of steroid use. It kind of seemed that it was more of the French press hating on the American for dominating its popular race. However after he retired a new American, Floyd Landis, came through to win the TDF only to be under suspision for roids and start his own scandal. Now this years TDF leader Michael Rasmussen has been pulled from the race due to doping suspicion. All these guys denied ever using. It will eventually come out that this problem runs deep for cycling. If you ask me Armstong pulled a Mark McGuire. He retired at the perfect time.

As I am watching this Live, that cockiness Stern always possesses is no where to be found. I think it was a good idea to swallow his pride during this one.
Now he is making excuses of why Donaghy's former problems with neighbors and gambling went without resolution. Stern said he told Donaghy that they were "Unhappy" with his behavior and conduct. If he continued, he would no longer work for the NBA. This was 2005.
June 20th (after the finals) the NBA received a call from FBI about these fixing allegations. Stern met with them the next day.
Boy does Stern look shook up.
Stern is currently not aware of the number of games or which games were fixed.
July 9th Donaghy resigned.
Stern made it clear his understanding of this was an isolated case, however pending investigation he is not sure. He is only going by what he knows now.
He is sure leaving the possibility open that more referees could be involved.
He also says regardless of cost, every procedure will be in place to make sure this will never happen again. At 11:30 he took questions.
No one was given a heads up?
Stern-That is correct
Are you surprised this slipped through the cracks?
Stern-Yes, although no more than the FBI.
Can you take us through the range of emotions after you got the call?
Stern-This is a subject we discuss. I am aware of the threat in all sports. My reaction was I can't believe it happening to us.
Why do you suck cock?
Stern-Cause I am queer and it is yummy.
This was just the basics of the press conference. It's been going on to an hour now. There is much more of this story to go around for the rest of the summer. Later on today I will have my response of today's news.

I don't know about you, but I am so fucking giddy about this, teenage school girls at a Nick Carter concert have nothing on me. This is like the best episode of the Sopranos that never happened, only in real life.

Now the "bigger vision" he has for himself is playing in Italy after his Knicks contract expires in 2 years. He compared his situation to how "Beckham is getting love for coming here" to play soccer. Hmmmm...other than ESPN trying to get ratings, I'm not so sure Beckham is getting love from anyone. Like Beckham, Marbury wants to, "Do the same thing for basketball and spread the Starbury Movement so people all around the world can benefit."
Yeah, I can't tell you how much my life has benefited by having Marbury live in my country. What he needs to do is send me my money for the doctors bill I got for rolling my ankle wearing his cheap ass, no ankle support shoes.
The only reasonable excuse I would except from Marbury wanting to go to Italy is because the cocaine is of great quality over there. America's cocaine is just not strong enough for him anymore.
I could go on and on bashing and quoting this guy, but read his blog. It's just too good to pass up. And for those of you who missed out on this video gem...Take a look.

Now, we all knew of these allegations. I assume, however, we didn't know they would actually get enough evidence for a case against the Superstar QB. This spells DOOM for the Atlanta Falcons. With all of this going on, I would be surprised to see Vick playing football at all this year. That leaves backup JOEY HARRINGTON to lead the Falcons this year. If you think those receivers dropped a lot of passes for Vick...well you know the rest.
While I am a big fan of innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, that rule does not apply in the sports world. Athletes who fall under such scrutiny have a very, very hard time clearing their name with the fans. No matter what the outcome may be. Kobe is still recovering. Barry Bonds never will. Mike Tyson never had a chance anyway, so I guess he don't count. But you get the idea.

-A soccer player by the name of Beckham (i think) comes to L.A. to play. No ones cares.
-Jimmy Kimmel was great as host of Espy's. Ends up being the only GREAT thing.
-Former teammates Steven Jackson, Ron Artest both suspended for first 7 games.
-No-legged runner finishes last; Then gets disqualified by no hearted bastards.
-DWade might not be ready for start of season; Still Cries
-Mourning decides to return to Heat for one more year; Team looks shady for '08
-Cuban applies for Cubs. I am pretty confident he would do well
-Wish he would buy the Lions
-Phillies are first team to 10,000 losses. Fans loved attending the game.

Markov's bloody knuckles
Wednesday, July 11, 2007
Adam "Pacman" Jones was pulled over last month at 8:30am somewhere near his Tennessee home. Several citations were issued including wrong plates on his Lamborghini, a registration violation, for having a Georgia licence and having no proof of insurance. This guy must be sick of going to court as the date for these infractions are scheduled for Aug. 10. If I was Pacman, and thank my mama I am not, I would not leave my house with out this check list:
- Drivers Licence, insurance, registration
- Birth Certificate
My gut tells me when will not hear the end of Pacman until he is associated with the name Rae Carruth. Someone please stop him before that happens.

- Reduce the number of participants
- Reduce the number of outs allowed from 10 to 5
- Call it the Pop-out Derby-that's what it was
- Quit going to in studio analysis
- Add a new event. Such as MLB's fastest player. Start at home and run the bases. Fastest clocked time wins. I'd enjoy it.
Lastly, I wanna laugh at everyone who lined up a boat in McCovey's Cove. Including Kenny Mayne who was equipped with a helmet cam. I laugh because in 3 hours, 2 balls were hit in the water. 1 was foul. By the way Vladimir Guerrero won......I Think. Feel free to share your ideas on how to better the MLB All-Star experience.
