Almost Paradise…

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

I’m on St. Ma’arten for five(5) more days and I’m starting to get paranoid. No Black man in America has spent this many consecutive days in paradise. Not even Jay-Z and he is ’bout that yacht lifestyle.

I’m not ready to be the most h8’d on. I know I act like that sometimes, but I’m just like every other person who is secretly a sucker for love. Even when I’m looking at the clouds in the sky I get photo-bombed by a Ms.Fat Booty.

This is why I’m so so paranoid about my return to NYC. The universe stays conspiring for me to succeed, even with the people who consistently block that path.

The key for me is to be like this little clamshell crab pictured below.

Dude is rocking his hardhat and he just keeps it moving. He’s undeterred by the bullshit beating him in the head.

That is until some motherfuxer decides to fux with him and have him for lunch.

Oh nooooooo!

Get Your Bell Rung…

Monday, September 24th, 2012

7pm, Thursday, September 27th
Schomburg Center, 515 Malcolm X Blvd., New York, NY
Click here to RSVP or call 212-491-2040

Join ImageNation Cinema Foundation and the Schomburg Center for the New York Premiere of Bell Rung: A Football Mindset. Scores of ex-players live a silent life of emotional, physical, and financial struggle resulting from their days in the professional arena, and endure lifelong struggles due to uncared for concussions.

Join moderator Michael O’Keefe of the NY Daily News, former All Pro Super Bowl champion Dorsey Levens, nuerologist Dr. Joelle Mast, director Zach Herman, producer Nick Basta and others, for a talk back following the screening.

Co-produced by Levens, Bell Rung asks the questions that need to be asked: Is it acceptable for professional football players to remain neglected by the league and owners as they confront a post-professional football life of disability and perpetual pain?

Should professional football players have to endure trauma-induced brain damage, early onset dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease, often beginning well before the age of fifty and resulting in astronomical medical expenses without appropriate coverage?

Is society content to allow these former sports warriors to be cast aside and forgotten when they are no longer part of our national entertainment? Bell Rung answers these seeks the answers.

NFL = Not For Long…

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Peace to my cuzzo Ryan Grant who is starting the 2012 campaign from the training room waiting for a new team to sign his offer sheet. The NFL = Not For Long especially for running backs, but Ryan will hook up with a team prA’Li before opening day kicks off.

The dP dot com Pick ‘Em Pool is fired up as usual and if you haven’t received your invite then drop a comment with your e-mail address in the appropriate field so I can send one out to you ASAP (no Rocky).

The NFL Enters A New Era…

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

Since the 1950s New Era has been the official ‘on-field’ hat for Major League Baseball. When I first got into collecting New Era caps we didn’t call them ‘fitteds’. They were called ‘Pro Caps’ since the only other people with these joints were the professionals who worked in them.

New Era just became the official ‘on-field’ cap for the National Football League. To celebrate their achievement New Era is releasing a series of their classic 59Fifty Draft Day caps with the team cities embroidered on the front of the crown and team logos on the side. The caps come in a box that resembles a formula from the Wonderlic Cognitive Ability test. LOL.

The draftees will wear this cap on the podium this Thursday as the NFL draft gets underway. I wonder who will wear this Buffalo cap on Thursday, Michael Floyd or Riley Reiff?

I can tell you who will be wearing this Dallas cap. Me.
