White Horse

The two links above represent some stories you may want to checkout. The first one is about Pam Grier and her new book about her life. The wild story she told is that her doctor talked about a cocaine buildup in her vagina. Pam says she didnt do drugs but she was having unprotected sex with Richard Pryor at the time. So her boyfriend Richard(I didnt know he dated her)had so much cocaine in his semen that it was leaving residue and he was also rubbing this expensive coke on his penis to stay erect. You guys wont complain about the price of your ED medicine anymore after hearing that story.

When I hear about couples who dated but didnt marry like John Tesh and Oprah,Jim Brown and Raquel Welch and now Pam and Richard I wonder how their careers would have been different if they chose to get married. Oprah especially would have been different because she has never been married before.

The second link is about the controversy over Myron Rolle dropping in the draft because he is considered to smart for the NFL. Clay Travis does a great job of explaining how dumb this idea is. Steve Young became a lawyer while he played for the 49ers even though most of it was done as a backup. Another draft pick one year chose to stay home and fish with his dad instead of going to the draft he was picked in the first round. Travis talked about how the NFL wants dumb players who only care about playing football and not outside interests. The NFL has no guaranteed contracts for a sport that is the most violent and profitable in the world. The players union is a joke and the NFL might as well not have a union like Walmart.

Rolle is a Rhodes Scholar who wants to be a doctor when his NFL career is over. Players who go to jail dont get picked apart like Rolle was by the NFL experts. The execs and coaches were not used to sitting in a room with a player who uses words they cant define and his intelligence intimidates them and they are too much of cowards to admit it. The biggest shock to me was the rumor that Tony Dungy of all people was on the side of Rolles critics. Dungy has helped Mike Vick get back into the NFL and other players who commited crimes and did bad things but if its true that Tony has a problem with a Rhodes Scholar playing football and questions his commitment level. I would lose alot of respect for Tony Dungy if that is true. Jemele Hill put it best when she said that Rolle just like Dungy knew he was destined for greater things in the ministry beyond football, Rolle is destined to open a clinic and help others through medicine. I couldnt find the negative comments from Dungy online so I hope it is not true.

The good news is the team who drafted Rolle is my titans so i get to root him on 8 times a year in person. I should get to meet him and the other players this summer and I will let him know how much I support what he wants to do on and off the field.

The titans had a good draft I would give it a B+ or A-. They addressed every need position but Fisher didnt get enough for Lendale White in my opinion and he drafted players from Montana and that is the team his son plays for. If you had any doubt that this was a favor and inside job, Fishers son actually called to tell one of the players he was just drafted. Fishers son isnt a titans employee so he should not have made that call. It was unprofessional and Goodell could have fined them but he has his hands full with Big Ben and morons in the front office of the dolphins asking Dez Bryant if his mother was a a prostitute. If Bryant had punched that guy in the eye I would have started a defense fund for Dez. What does Bryants mother beinga prostitute,stripper or whatever have to do with running down the field and blocking or catching a pass? Hire a detective to get information about a persons legal problems or their families problems but asking a disgusting question like that to a mans face should be enough to get a man fired in the NFL. The bucs asked Myron Rolle how it felt to desert his team when he left to go to study at Oxford for a year and now the Dolphins front office is asking dumb questions too. Most NFL fans will be cheering for both of those florida teams to stink it up this year as Karma. I know the jags are in florida too but you dont have to root for them to lose they will just do that anyway while they wait to move to LA in a few years.

The powerball is 30 million tonight and the megamillions is an amazing 224 million for fridays drawing so get your tickets if thats your thing. The powerball is low because it was won last thursday but Chris Shaw in Missouri. Shaw is 29 and he has 3 kids by two women and he lives with a woman who has 2 kids so he could really use the money. Most people have focused on the fact that he has his 2 front teeth missing but with the 258 million he won he can pay a man to chew up his food for him now. He didnt say he will buy new teeth and take all 5 kids to disneyland. So congratulations to him and his family.

Dhani tackles the globe was good last night so make sure you catch the rest of the season. Shyne dissed 50 cent again. Shyne sounds really different now. I dont know if Shyne was faking his Biggie voice just to get signed to Bad Boy or if something actually happened to his voice in prison. Shyne gets alot of respect from rappers for doing his time and not snitching but his lyrics and energy better pick up if he wants to sell alot of records.

Roethlisberger is supposed to be suspended by Goodell soon. I am surprised that Goodell is doing this but no one can accuse him of racism after he finally comes down this hard on a popular white player. Jared Allen was recorded almost fighting a guy in bar over his future wife. Allen almost drank himself out of the NFL so to be caught in a bar and almost fighting was really dumb. Jared should let his spouse go to bars with her friends so he can avoid those temptations to drink and fight. If a guy can bait him into punching or shooting at him then a civil case wont be far behind. Roethlisberger accusers may be after money too but there is way too much smoke with Big Ben for none of the incidents to be true. A civil case isnt always like a lottery win because you still have to actually prove it and win the case.

Speaking of the lottery the powerball is 252 million for wednesday and the megamillions is 142 million for tonight. Hang in there and maybe its your week to win.

RIP GURU. Guru is a real legend.

Good news and Bad news for Boondocks fans. The good news is the Boondocks won the Peabody award. The show is great on so many levels and I am happy they are being recognized. The bad news is the 3rd season that start may 2nd will be the last season. The fans can only hope another network lures them away for enough money to make a 4th season or maybe they will do some Boondocks movies.

Dhani tackles the Globe is coming back April 19th on the Travel Channel. Speaking of bad news the Duke Blue Devils won the National title again in college basketball. Duke had the easiest bracket to the Final Four and they made the most of it. Tiger is tied for third place in the masters right now. I think Tiger will win it all but he really made some mistakes saturday and he will need the power of his magic red shirt to focus in today.

Powerball and Megamillions are growing fast with the cross state promotions so Powerball is 175 million for wednesday and the Megamillions is 105 million for tuesday. I listen to that Fabolous and DJ Drama Funeral 2 mixtape almost everyday. Fabo killed every hot beat. Good luck and keep following your dreams.

Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate that. The pope had alot of controversy around Easter. I dont understand how covering up and moving around child molestors is ok with the Pope but when the President is invited to speak at Notre Dame its a problem because he supports a womans right to choose. Clergy who molest isnt a lifestyle choice or a quirk they are criminals like any other sicko and they need to be arrested and charged.

Donovan McNabb was traded on Easter from the Eagles to the Redskins. The Titans play both teams this season so this is a big story on many levels. Andy"Drug Emporium"Reid said he did it as a favor to McNabb instead of sending him to awful teams like the Bills or Raiders. Trading McNabb in the division is a real slap in the face because that means the Eagles see him as washed up and no threat.

I saw the trailer for "Lottery Ticket" and it looks entertaining. Bow Wow,Mike Epps,Loretta Devine,Ice Cube,Teara"getting thick very slowly"Marie and Bill Bellamy are some of the stars. I will see the movie just based on the lottery being involved but it looks like a funny movie and Mike Epps and Ice Cube were in another Lottery Movie "All About The Benjamins" and it was cool. Of course Eva Mendes looking really good helped alot too. Bill Bellamy has fallen off a little bit. He was on pace to be the next Will Smith type of comedy/action tv/movie go to guy but now he looks like he has a very small role in this movie.

You can watch the Lottery Ticket trailer on youtube or their website. Also on google there is a guy who calls himself the lottery burner. He rejects the notion that you need to win the lottery to be truly happy so he burns tickets that he bought on camera. It looks insane because right now the megamillions is 76 million and the powerball is 125 million so he is risking burning millions. The smart thing he does is point out that the odds are so bad that if after the drawing you didnt win anything, you may as well have burned the tickets or not played at all.

T Pain and Terry Crews were also in the trailer for Lottery Ticket. I was just reminded of that because Terry Crews is in some weird Body Wash commercial I think for Old Spice. I see Terry in reruns of Everybody Hates Chris so between that and his reality show maybe he will get offered more roles in big movies. I think the commercial was more of a money situation than actually trying to get his face out there.
