The drama between Tiny, T.I., and Floyd Mayweather started up again when Tiny was photographed with Mayweather at Mariah Carey’s Halloween party. Tiny said Mariah told her to come take the photo, and she didn’t have any other interaction with Mayweather at the party. T.I. later posted a video on his Instagram page of a dinner party where Kevin Hart was making jokes on Floyd Mayweather Sr.’s face and TMT. Very soon after that posting, a video of Tiny dancing with Mayweather leaked on the internet, showing that Tiny’s initial statement was a lie. Well, last night Tiny went on her Facebook page, saying she can have a male friend and insinuated that T.I. has been cheating on her for years.
Soccer fans in France who were excited to see who would win between Metz & Lyon will have to wait a while longer as the game was abandoned less than thirty minutes into it. The game was called after someone in the crowd threw a firecracker onto the field as Lyon’s goalkeeper was laying on the field being attended to by medical personnel for an injury he had.
Reggie Bush and Joe McKnight had a pretty close friendship. When McKnight signed his letter of intent to go to USC, it was because he wanted to be like Bush and he became somewhat of a big brother to him. In the years since, the former Trojan players have stayed close, which is why it hurt Bush extra hard to hear of McKnight’s murder on Thursday during a road rage incident in New Orleans. After venting his emotions on twitter, Bush decided to honor his friend with this amazingly detailed pair of cleats that he will wear this Sunday.
Kobe Bryant is doing the best he can to get folks into the holiday spirit with the hopes of helping others at the same time. He and his wife’s foundation, “The Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation” are selling their own versions of an ugly Christmas sweater with a twist. The sweater is all about Kobe, complete with options to have him wearing #8 or #24 on it, topped with the words “Merry Swishmas”. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the foundation so your purchase can hopefully make an impact.
Derrick Rose might not be playing at the same level with the Knicks that made him an MVP with the Bulls back in 2011 but after the injuries and falling out of favor in the windy city, his career is experiencing a bit of a resurgence in New York. He’s averaging 16.4ppg to go along with just under five assists and four rebounds per game but more important than all of that, he seems to truly be enjoying the game and his new environment.
Last Sunday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers surprisingly defeated the Seattle Seahawks by a score of 14-5 in what was a pretty ugly game. According to Bucs center Joe Hawley, the game was even uglier than it looked as he claimed a member of the Seattle defense spit directly in his face after a play was over.
The word “marijuana” in professional sports is so taboo that most people don’t want to even speak on it publicly. While there have been more players lately to speak out about it and the positive effects it can have on healing the body, it’s still treated like a serious drug by all pro leagues and even folks who know it’s not a big deal are hesitant to talk about it. Thankfully, Steve Kerr is not one of those people as he admitted using it recently and seems to be an advocate for its use.
The way the murder of former NFL player Joe McKnight is being handled has many people wondering how in the hell is the man who shot McKnight, Ronald Gasser, free right now with no charges. Police have defended their reasoning for releasing him, saying that for now they don’t have any reason to detain him further. They do confirm that he did in fact shoot and kill McKnight but it’s feeling like they are starting to lean towards a self defense, or “stand your ground” justification, despite at least two separate witnesses saying Gasser shot McKnight as he was trying to apologize and then shot him again as he lay on the ground and he stood over him. This whole thing is just disgusting and now we find out that Gasser has a history of road rage incidents and was even arrested for it back in 2006 and the same exact intersection where he killed McKnight.
