:10 Well she told me not to tell it but you know I am gonna tell it… and the second she said don’t you dare tell it…she knew I was gonna tell it! But I am not gonna tell it all. So to the lovely lady standing in the middle of the floor at The Savoy on Friday night thanks for the compliments on my column and you’re now in “The Locker Room” unnamed as requested but you know who you are…don’t ya!!
:09 All I can say to you Gateway Gator haters is you can stop talking bad about the coaching staff (all 42 of them). All they keep doing is winning.
They’ve won two WPIAL titles and are now in search of a state title after taking Seneca Valley apart at the shoelaces 68-44. Shut-up…just shut-up!!! That means me too!
:08 Speaking of the Gateway game, and I was. (You now see how this thing works huh?) While at the Gator game we kinda missed a goodie over at Peabody High. Allderdice, led by Justin Dobbs and Ben Mickens, two of the top seniors in the city, lost a close one to Shaler 57-51. Penn State recruit and family name legend Geno Thorpe led the way for Shaler with 20 points.
:07 Grown folks I am proud of y’all. You’re showing up real strong in support of your High School Ballers. Keep up the good work. And when it’s all over take them out to dinner.
:06 A huge congratulations to Godwin Nyama of Brashear. He becomes the first City League wrestler ever, ever, ever to win a State Title…ever, ever!!!
:05 Don’t look now but there’s a possibility that as the Penguins enter the Stanley Cup playoffs they could have centers Evgeni Malkin, Jordan Staal and Captain Sidney Crosby all healthy at the same time! What? Don’t ask me how I know, I just know. Ok, ok, I got it out of the Trib, but it still might happen.
:04 First the “Heat” now the Celtics. Just line-em-up baby. My L.A. Lakers are knocking them down and “The Black Momba” is taking no prisoners. I tried to tell you but you didn’t want to hear it. Kobe’s leading the league in scoring and he’s like 50 or something…C’mon Man!! But I still need to know who’s wife Lamar Odom got caught with to get him sent packin’…you don’t just get rid of the best sixth man in the league and get nothing in return for no reason…that’s double C’mon-C’mon Man!!
:03 If the Denver Broncos sign Peyton Manning it would be the biggest insult to a player…“Tee-bow”…since, well since Lamar Odom got sent packin! (Hey, he might have been with Phil Jackson’s woman. That will get you on a bus quick, fast and in a hurry!)
:02 Keep hope alive! The pressure is still on to get the pants up. Don’t do it for me. For that matter don’t do it for yourself. Do it for your son. Help him understand the meaning of what a real man is. And the importance of Black pride, dignity and respect.
