In case you didn’t know, I’ve been gone for the last week. Specifically, I was on a cruise. I feel 20 lbs. fatter, a little hungover, and the room still moves when I walk–or sit. All of this makes it extremely difficult to read, let alone type. However, there are still some things that need mentioning.
Who is Jay Bruce? Isn’t that Matt’s law partner? And is Beisner dating him? Mosley got hitched? Will there be a “Know Your Enemy” about the in-laws? Is Hunter McClintock still the greatest basketball player ever whittled-down to 10 YouTube minutes? Or is it now John Wall? And is Beisner dating him?
Jasper left. That is sad, disappointing, and detrimental to our future. It was not too unexpected, however. I hope he does well.
The week wasn’t all bad, though. The baseball team is still alive (2PM v. Michigan, today) and Intern accepted my friend request on Facebook! The Finals have been set, and Thursday night’s game one should bring in record viewing numbers for the NBA. And an ex-Cat will be starting on one of the teams. Oh, and Brandon Webb remains unhittable. Not too shabby.
The week’s biggest news came out of South Carolina, though. Syvelle Newton’s album has DROPPED. Don’t believe me? Check out this picture:
If you’re in need of a refresher course on Mr. Newton, he was a QB/WR/DB for USCjr. a couple of years ago. Basically, he was a scrub wide receiver who played quarterback after Blake Mitchell was ineffective in ’06. Regardless, check out his MySpace page and listen to his new jam.
Did you listen? No? Well, let me sum it up. It sucks. It doesn’t suck because of the singing, beat, or anything like that. It sucks because of the dubbed “Game-Cocks, Game-Cocks” chant that plays throughout the song. I realize that, as a UK fan, I am open to being called a hypocrite, as my favorite team has released a couple of rap songs over the last few years. I have an answer to that.
First of all, “Believe” is AWESOME. I wear headphones all day, even when I sleep and shower, and that song is on continuous loop. Plus, it’s kind of “ha-ha, jokey,” as well as being made by current players for the current team. As for Bradley, he sounds like Jay-Z, who is awesome. Either way, neither was an attempt by an ex-player to get his song played at football games, as Syvelle’s “Boom” seems to be.
More to come…
