For New Pittsburgh Courier
:10 Hi my name is Michael Vick. This is a message to all the haters out there. I am about to sign a new contract for $20 million big ones…NUFF said!
:09 Tiger Wood’s ex-caddie who Wood fired last month won the WGC Bridgestone with Adam Scott. Tiger finished tied for 37th. That’s Karma baby!
:08 I know most of you don’t want to listen to what I am telling you most of the time because…well because I know more than you. (Just kidding City League people) but here are five things you can take to the Bank!! And remember I told ya so.
1. Tiger won’t win again until he brings the women back. The past was no accident mmmaaannn!
2. Pirates don’t start losing when the Steelers start playing…well!!
3. J-Lo is so fine she scares me, and I only see her on TV help me Lord!
4. Cam Newton will be a superstar this year and Terrell Pryor next year.
:07 You will know the country is in financial bankruptcy when auto racing is done. I mean just going around in a circle 500 times. There can’t be a bigger waste of money. I am just saying.
:06 College football is back. Now let’s see if Pitt’s going to be it! I say yes.
:05 Shout out’s to: Terrence Taylor, former great player, military guy, Connie Hawkins League player and ref. and John Brewer, the keeper of the historic castle in Pittsburgh and the rest of the crew over at the Wilkinsburg Penn Avenue McDonalds. And to my new main man Chef James Hurt the food guru over at Mercy Hospital and his fiancé Claudia Yates who works at the Urban League East Hills Family Support Center. One of my young stars Bryant Mungin is project director. That means it’s being done right. He’s a “Champion graduate.” Keep reading James, I couldn’t do it without you. James is a South Hills grad. Came out with Kirk and Jennifer Bruce back in the day. (Yeah I know, more city leaguer’s…what ya gonna do, they’re everywhere?)
:04 Why not bring Randy Moss to Pittsburgh…why not, why not, why not???
:03 Hey thank you once again, Monroeville First Friday Par-Tay people, another great night. Thanks to the Gibson’s, Ms. Renée and Ms. Roxy, all of your donations helped 50 plus kids have a great time at the Armon Gilliam Memorial “Hard Work” Basketball Camp.
:02 Now…time to get ready for the greatest “White Party” in Pittsburgh coming up on Sept. 8, at the magnificent Fox Chapel Yacht Club. Here’s the deal: 6-8 p.m. Reception-Happy Hour…Relax and get a seat; 8 p.m. Old School D.J., Cash Bar/Cash Kitchen (no free food man)!!; Meet the Fabulous Diamond Models; SoulPitt gift bags to the first 100 people; 50/50-prizes and surprises. Go to the SoulPitt website for all the details.
:01 Pittsburgh, when you have the opportunity, say thanks to Charles “Chuck” Powell. He’s a special man doing special things for Pittsburgh and you!
:00 Shame on everyone of you…especially Black folk’s if you haven’t been to the Savoy Restaurant and Social Hot Spot. Chuck Saunders has done a fantastic job with the operation and we all must support it. That means everybody…even you Woodland Hills grads.
