Yes, I know. It's been a week since the last post. No excuses will be made though as that's a lame way to get out of it. Things have been going good here though, but you're wanting to read a few decent stories if I have those in store for you. I'll see what I can do.
Saturday me and Cork were able to watch the #2 ranked UConn Huskies visit Morgantown. Thanks to some free tickets, we were on our way. Tickets to this game were selling for crazy amounts on eBay. We had an extra and sold it to this dirty thug scalper right as we got there. We got a pretty good deal on it since we got them for free anyways. The Coliseum had the 9th largest crowd in it's history, that's good stuff. Most already know that I am not fond of WVU football at all and actually root against them. Yes, I know. But when it comes to WVU basketball, it's a bit different. Same fans, but even for as good as the basketball team has been the past few years, they don't talk about how they can beat any team alive and how they're the greatest ever. Football season is another story, ugh. Anyways, it was a nice game to see and close the entire way. UConn is for real. They have some big time athletes and many future NBA guys. I paid $2.50 for a King Size Snickers. Halftime festivites rocked though as it was frisbee dogs and they were way impressive.
After the game, we figured we'd hit up some food action. We chose CJ Maggie's. I've never been to this place, but it wasn't bad. I loaded up on some prime rib, a salad, and some coleslaw. Nothing out of the ordinary went down there though, but I'll still type about it for the fans reading at home with nothing else to do.
After that was one of my favorite nights of the year. NBA All-Star Saturday Night. Ever since I can remember, I've been pumped to watch the 3 Point Shootout and Dunk Contest. This year was no different. I watched with my boys in #basketball and we had a big crew along for the chat. Dirk Diggler ended up winning the Shootout and I was able to predict that one. Usually my predictions are off, but this one I nailed. Not nailed like a porn star, but you know what I mean. And in the Dunk Contest, Lil Nate Robinson ended up winnning. Dude is 5'7" if he's lucky and he has some crazy hops. I picked Andre Iguodala to win and many fans and myself thought he got robbed. Nate's dunks were great, and bringing in the legendary Spud Webb to help him was also nice. But he tried some of those dunks to what seemed like 54 times a piece. That should take away from the points, but then again, I don't judge. Dre-Iggy's dunk where Iverson tossed the ball on the opposite side of the backboard, Dre grabbing it and bringing it all the way to the outside and cramming it.. Well, that was just nasty and I've never seen that attempted before.
The_Freak mentioned this little gem of a website and I had to post it in here. Maybe some will find it useful, but I find the whole ad hilarious. The intro will have you rolling and I like how they give you 5 reasons to buy the product. What is the product you're asking about? It's the Balltrimmer. Most guys do it anyways, but I just couldn't see me using a little toy like that to get it done. The razor is all you need. Too much information for some reading at home, but that's what you get here in the madhouse, free of charge. Anyways, check out the site: http://www.balltrimmer.com.
Speaking of Morgantown, Cork got a DVD the other day that should be funny to see. Wanting to see the party scene at Morgantown and how rowdy it can get up there? Couches burning, chicks getting naked, tailgate parties, people getting maced, and whatever else you can think of. I haven't seen it yet to give a review, but it'd be hilarious if we see people we know in it. That'd make it worth it. Anyways, another site for you all to check out: http://www.morgantownmayhem.com.
A few new CDs to add to the collection that you might want to know about. What is that you ask?
Brother Lynch Hung & MC Eiht: The New Season. This one is great stuff if you're into Westcoast rap. Lynch is from Sacramento and Eiht is a legend from the city of Compton and they go at it good with their rhymes on this album. No mainstream stuff here, this is true gangsta rap.
Get Rich Or Die Tryin' Soundtrack. I liked this one a lot. 16 tracks of 50 and his boys. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I'm sure to rent that one when it comes out. Anyways, you get 50, Banks, Buck, MOP, and Mobb Deep on these tracks. Get it.
Ghostface Killah: Shaolin's Finest. For the Wu-Tang fans out there, you should like this. This was released in 2003 and is a Best Of. My favorites are Chercherz Laghost and Never Be The Same Again.
3 Quick Thangs:
1. Let's try the birthdays on President's Day, February 20th. That's Monday. Ivana Trump, Donald's old chick, turns 57. Kelsey Grammer goes for 51. William Baldwin, Happy 43rd. Charles Barkley also is 43 on Monday, nice. Model Cindy Crawford is 40, MILF. Kurt Cobain would've been 39. Andrew Shue of Melrose Place fame is 39. NBA baller Stephon Marbury hits 29. Hottie Jennifer Love Hewitt is my age, 27.
2. At the game on Saturday, I pay and what do they give me in change? A 50-cent piece. You don't see that too often. Or maybe I'm the only one that is intrigued by that one.
3. MySpace fans? http://www.myspace.com/drudown894. Add me.
