Wednesday Bits and Pieces
We begin a new trend that I will hope to have every week called Bits and Pieces to look for stories in sports and the other news around the world that’s worth noting.
- J.R. Smith reportly shut down his twitter page after stories emerged that his “tweets” are suggesting he is a member of the Bloods gang because Smith replace the letter “c” with the letter “k” as a sign of disrespect to the Crips gang. I did not know that a gang can actually “own” a letter. While I’m not an expert, this may all be because he didn’t go to college. As Lebron James said it best, I didn’t go to college.
- Other Twitter controversy includes Mark Schlereth’s beef with Ocho Cinco on Twitter. You can find the back and forth conversation here. Child Please!
- One last Twitter related news belongs to Rashad McCants. Add him on Twitter and look at the location, he’s willing to tell you by iPhone GPS where he is at all times, that’s how desperate he is for attention! Also, does he admire Kobe a little too much?
- MarkMadson.com is worth $100,000? Ridiculous! What’s more ridiculous is that Mark Madson is dumb enough to buy his stolen domain name.
- Delonte West can’t rap. Surprised? I am.
- Charles Rogers admits to using weed, prescription drugs and a whole lot of other things to get high in an ESPN Outside the Lines interview
- Madden 2010 is going to be released next Friday August 14, 2009. This is a big step up from Madden 1992. Every year, EA gets people to sink $50-$60 into a game that updates all the players and adds some useless features. Erin Andrews is a new host in the game, unfortunately, “the tape” will not be included.
- Speaking of wasting money, would you waste money to learn how to play madden from gaming nerds.
- One piece of economic news I’ll end with is why are Hummer eligible for the Cash for Clunkers program?
