First of all, we’d like to thank all of you loyal blog readers. We’ve stopped blogging on this .wordpress.com page. Chill, don’t get all depressed yet, you’ll still be able to read our stuff. We got a domain to make this more official. Check the new site out here.
Anyone out there ever pay attention to the NBA or the NFL? Or any sport for that matter? As much as I love hooping and watching my Cowboys (save the boos) and Packers battle it out against other teams, one thing just triggers anger inside of me. Believe it or not, I just can’t stand it when I see players like Darrelle Revis and Albert Haynesworth hold out of training camps just because they want more money in their pockets. Revis has held out for about 25 days from his team! Are you even a teammate anymore? If I was head coach, I don’t care how many receivers you can shut down, I’m telling you to get off the team, because you’re immature and you don’t understand the concept of a team. If you are already going to get tens of millions of dollars just for doing something that you are extremely talented at, why not accept the money? Where is the love for the game?
People who love the game and cherish competition wouldn’t switch teams after such a long road in hopes of plowing over everybody and to earn more money *cough*LeBron*cough*. Sorry about that, but he isn’t the only one. If you really look into sports, there are so many people who are just given talents and happen to be discovered. It’s really not fair. People who love the game should be happy to play the game for free, because they already love what they are doing. They should be ecstatic to be getting paid any money to play. As it may appear, Brett Favre acts like one of these people who is just in search for a championship, but I believe he is a true person to football. This guy is going on 40 years old, and throwing touchdown passes while grey hairs grow on his head! He can’t bring himself to retire for the sole reason of that’s all he wants to do.
Hold on, hold on, isn’t there a recession going on? Shouldn’t we just go to Alex Rodriguez’s house, sell it (BTW, this isn’t a serious idea, I’m just saying…), and put that money into some green project to help our environment? Nahh, lets just give him a new contract for $10 to $20 million dollars more. Take this, for example. Whenever you see someone win the lottery, they are absolutely ecstatic. They’re jumping for joy without a care in the world. Alex Rodriguez wins the lottery every two or three years with his paychecks. And he is just playing baseball! Who keeps the world going round? Engineers, scientists, doctors, teachers… TEACHERS. A benchwarmer on the Lakers, in one year, probably makes the equivalent of 10-15 years of teaching for the average school. That’s ridiculous. We need education in this world, but we aren’t encouraging it at all. You could be dumb as rocks and just get by in high school and if you’re in the high 6 feet area, with a couple moves or two, you already got colleges drooling over you.
All those lessons of teamwork and brotherhood you learned on the high school football team is dumped after college. Then, its all about who will give me the most money and how far can I push them? This is one thing about this world that just doesn’t make sense in my head. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m not stepping down from this opinion because this is downright crazy.
As you can see, lately everyone has been putting out an underground rapper that has the potential to be something great. I thought I would continue with the trend. I have mentioned Angry Mic before, but only briefly among other artists, so you probably didn’t really notice him.
What I like most about this guy is his flow and his vocabulary. When you combine the two, it creates eargasmic verses. He released a mixtape a while back Intervention. I downloaded it and that was how I discovered his talent. I believe that this guy could have been something great if he was given the chance.
As I mentioned before, the Dirty Heads have really grown on me lately. They bring a mix of hip hop, ska, and even reggae all into one genre. Another thing that never ceases to amaze me is how they have such raw talent and they all bring their own to the table.
