Lil Wayne appeared on ESPN’s first take again today, and gave his picks for March Madness and also voiced his opinion on Barack Obama’s predictions. Some folks are “outraged” that our president took 30 minutes of his time to talk about sports when our economy is in shambles.
There’s another video coming very shortly in which Wayne tells who he thinks will win the MVP out of Kobe, LeBron and D. Wade.
Sunday’s edition of ESPN’s Outside The Lines featured the familiar story of athletes and their miscellaneous offspring sprinkled throughout the country.
The segment starts with Travis Henry, who is infamous for having nine children with nine different women. What makes the story even more interesting is the fact that Henry is no longer in the NFL, has been indicted for trafficking drugs, and has no money to keep up with $17,000 per month in child support. To make matters worse a woman named Vanessa Colbert says Henry is the father of her twin girls… which makes 11 children for him.
Later in the segment ESPN spoke to the mothers of Dwight Howard and Jason Caffey’s children. The absolute saddest moment of the entire thing, was Jason Caffey’s 15 year old son who has only met his dad once. He keeps a basketball card of his father in his wallet….
I know it seems unreal that one of the greatest boxers of all-time has never been a playable character in a video game, but it’s true. Mike Tyson’s “Punch Out” is one of the best video games ever but we were only able to control Little Mac, not the champ himself.
Between Tyson’s prison stints, drug problems, ear biting, and all-around ability to scare away any corporate entity…. game fans have been robbed of a chance to play as him in boxing games. All that changes in just a few months when Fight Night Round 4 hits shelves and I can’t wait. Everyone loves to have the classic debate “Who would win if Muhammad Ali fought Mike Tyson”, and now you can sit at the TV with your homies and make it happen. (for the record, a Kevin Rooney-trained 1987 Tyson would kill Muhammad Ali).
For those who played Fight Night 3, that ridiculous parry system has been toned down significantly and the mechanics of the game have been reworked from scratch. The career mode has been ungraded significantly and I’ve heard word that this game possesses some of the most amazing graphics that we’ve seen on next gen systems.
In the vid below you’ll see Tyson doing a little bit of promo.
TV analysts and sportswriters have always tripped over themselves to declare Marvin Harrison as a better player, and team mate than Terrell Owens. After observing both of them for many years, I’ve always thought the exact opposite.
I believe it’s really interesting that Marvin was released from the Colts weeks ago, and has yet to sign with a new squad. There have been rumors that teams are interested, but there hasn’t been any solid news of anyone beating down his door. So if Marvin is the better player, the better team mate, and the all-around character guy …. why did the team cancer with rapidly declining skills secure a deal first?
Fresh off her win against older sister Venus in the Billie Jean King tournament, Serena stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s new show last night. They engaged in a mini game of beer pong (i guess that was the only thing left since Conan faced her in a game of Wii Tennis last year), and Serena came out the victor.
That was funny and all… but jesus christ do you see Serena’s ass??? I’d strike that down with the wrath of Thor.
