For Your Health

Im trying to recover from my dead brackets like most of you. Tennessees men team has a chance to make the Final Four today and the womens team was beaten by Baylor. The same player who threw the haymaker for Baylor near the end of the regular season, helped Baylor knock Pat and the girls out of the tournament. ESPN,CBS,SOBE and even Yahoo have no perfect brackets left out of millions of entries so its not easy to win the millions and now everyone is waiting for next year to try again.

Speaking of Tennessee a man ran a car off the road here because they had an Obama bumper sticker. The victim had his 10 year old daughter in the backseat so it was really scary for them. The healthcare bill has sent tempers to a fever pitch but just like smart rappers keep it on wax, political debates shouldnt get physical like this.

The new Erykah Badu video "Window Seat" is a classic video for a great song so check it out and buy her album in 2 days. I dont want to ruin any suprises in the video for anyone so I cant comment on much but I will say Common and Dre 3000 had a reason to get sprung.

March Madness

March Madness is upon us and the sites offering a million dollars for a perfect bracket are Yahoo and Foxsports. That will be paid out over 40 years but add that to what you normally make a year and its a party. So dont be afraid to sign up and normally people who nothing about basketball do the best so try it out. ESPN and CBSSPORTS have 10grand contests for a perfect bracket because they are too afraid to offer a million just in case you get lucky and pick all the games right. The powerball is up to 200 million for saturday so you may want to donate a dollar to that as well because who the hell knows what may happen so why not.

Torii Hunter talked about how there are less blacks in baseball and he thinks no one complains because they count the latin players with the black players as minorities. Torii said it was cheaper to scout latin players instead of building inner city programs in america and baseball fields which is all true. Tony Kornheiser fresh off his suspension for running his mouth too much called Torii Hunters comments racist. Kornheiser took up for Mike Goldberg calling Dr. King a racial slur,Bruce Pearl joking about the KKK and tonys own racist comments heard off air of his radio show talking to a black staff member but now out of all those people he thinks Hunter is the only one who said something racist. Tony will talk himself out of a tv job as soon as they can find someone who gets the ratings he does. Tony can stay on radio forever because they dont really care what you say on there. Even Imus eventually got another job on radio making more money.

Allen Iversons wife filed for divorce and Stephen A Smith felt the need to tell the world that Iverson has a gambling and drinking problem. Ben Roethlisberger is catching another sexual assault charge this time in georgia. Tiger Woods is making preparations to play his first tournament of the year in a few weeks and may even play in the Masters. Woods hired Ari Fleischer for some strange reason. Woods only hires people suggested by IMG but between Mark McGwire,GW Bush and the BCS I dont see Ari has having been really successful at improving any of their images. Ari seems really average at his job and Tiger needs the best of the best PR people working on defusing this timebomb of his. On a completely unrelated note they now say chewing causes wrinkles and loose skin around your mouth. That means I will look like droopy dog in a few years as much as I like to eat.

Nancy Grace is a show that does alot of good but she also has a lot of unintentional comedy.
Caller Caroline: "Nancy I love you and I told my husband that if I ever come up missing I want him to call you first."
Nancy Grace: "You tell your husband to hide under the bed because if you come up missing im coming after him first."

Es Verdad

Free Agency starts at midnight tonight for the NFL. There is no salary cap so Bud Adams can spend like the Yankees if he wants to and buy a title but that wont happen. Jerry Jones spent so much on his stadium that I cant see him going crazy with money either. Dan Snyder will be the dream owner this offseason making it rain money on athletes left and right. The titans dont think they need a wide receiver like brandon marshall or boldin but trust me they do.

John Mayers ex girlfriend Jessica Simpson was on Oprah and said she was disappointed by Mayers comments about sex with her being like a drug. Jessica like most younger pop singers try to portray an innocent look so she told the world she was a virgin when she got married. Mayer who she never married talking about fornicating with her made her mad because it hurts her image that she doesnt have sex unless she is married to the guy. There were rumors she cheated on her husband but Nick could careless about that now, he is just happy to be free with a chance to find his partner.

Mike Wilbon cursed out a fellow writer because the guy said he name drops celebrities. So if you are keeping track at home Hannah Storm doesnt like it when you say she is 50 but dresses 20,Chris Berman doesnt like it when you call him fat and Mike Wilbon doesnt like it when you say he name drops celebrities he knows so basically no one at ESPN likes when you tell them the truth about themselves.

I saw Americans Greed on CNBC about the grandmothers who killed homeless men and collected life insurance on them in california. One grandmother had a book about sociopaths on her coffee table and she fit the profile of not having a conscience. They pretend to be sorry just so they can avoid more jailtime but true sociopaths never have regret. Since 1 in 25 ordinary Americans is a sociopath then you have to be careful out there. There are so many people walking about who dont have a conscience that they can cheat on you,rob you or even kill you without ever losing any sleep over it. Not having any guilt for anything you do sounds impossible but it is true and be aware of any signs that you know someone like this. Most doctors have to admit that sociopaths cant be reformed.

On a much more upbeat note, dream on dreamers because the powerball for saturday is 139 million dollars and megamillions for friday is 133 million dollars. Get your tickets post haste folks.
