:10 It is with a heavy, heavy heart that I bring you this news. By now I am sure most of you know that we have lost yet another superstar to God’s Team. The great Darryl Gissendanner, former Clairton and University of Pittsburgh basketball star passed away last week from a sudden and massive heart attack. More to come later. But in short…“Giss”, never smoked or drank, stayed in superior condition, ran 2-5 miles a day, could dance all night long, and was the best guy in the world. This loss will be tough!!! What? Could he hoop? Let me just say this. You couldn’t think as quick as “Giss” could move and you would rather have fire ants with razor blades in your pants then have “Giss” playing defense on ya! “Giss” you are loved and will truly be missed.

:09 Now on to lesser matters. “D Wade” where is Gabrielle Union for the on court after the game championship celebration? C’mon man…Give a brother a cheap thrill.

:08 I told ya, I told ya, I told ya and if you don’t believe me or remember me telling ya just go back and read my last two columns. I told ya Tim Bradley would beat Manny Pacquiao. Call it what you want after the fact. But what’s done is done. I keep telling ya “Fighters know fighters”. “The Pac-Man” said he was robbed. Hello, everybody says that when they lose.

:07 Don’t do this for me, do it for yourself. Go to… no…run to Dorsey’s Rec­ords and get the new “Stevie Wonder’s Greatest Hits.” From “Fingertips” to “Superstition” it is fantastic. I’ve been playing it for 10 days straight. (Neil Dorsey put the check in the mail).

:06 Tiger Woods haters everywhere…just shut-up mmmaaannn!!!

:05 So you missed “Contraband” starring Mark Wahlberg. Go get it. It’s all that and more. I give it 3 basketballs.

:04 Ok, ok, one hockey team is playing another hockey team for the Stanley Cup. That’s all I got. Oh shut up that’s all you got too.
