rob gronkowski is a record-setting tight end, a matchup nightmare for whoever lines up across him and a very limited spanish speaker.  in this interview with espn deportes, the new england patriot gives the language a shot to comedic results (note his facial expressions throughout).  “yo soy fiesta.”

the more widespread notions of beauty rest on two lies:

1.)  your natural self needs help (sometimes a lot of artificial help) to look its best.

2.)  beauty comes only in a specific size and color.

director jesse roston mocks the pursuit of these fallacies in an ad for a real-life version of photoshop.  the new cosmetics from adobé would let you skip the makeup, injections, surgeries, etc. and still reach the false sense of true beauty that you always wanted.  would you use it?

step into a church/synagogue/masjid and you will come across people whose words & actions seem in tune with god.  however, regardless of appearances, these same people’s hearts & minds could tell a different story.  a group of singers from the first baptist church in orlando took a satirical look at such worship in the video above.  in their words:

Sometimes when we worship, we don’t really mean it. This is what it would look like if we were to sing what we really meant.

nfl’s drug kingpin

12/15/11 2 Comments

for chicago bears wide receiver sam hurd, football was just a side hustle.  with his arrest last night in chicago, he was outed as one of the top drug dealers in the country.  from yahoo sports:

According to the statement, the first face-to-face meeting between Hurd and the agent happened on December 14. It was then that Hurd said that “T.L.” was in charge of the majority of the deals, and that Hurd focused on the “high-end” deals. Hurd then asked the agent if Mexican cellular phones could be provided for future deals, as Hurd believed that “law enforcement did not have the capacity of ‘listening to’ Mexican telephones. Hurd then said that he was a member of the Chicago Bears, that his practice ended at 5:30 p.m., and that he could make arrangements to make payment for one kilogram of cocaine that the agent gave him upon completion of negotiations. When Hurd walked away with the coke, he was taken into custody.

hurd told the agent that he was moving 4 kilos of cocaine a week in chicago, but was looking to push it up to 5-10 kis in addition to 1,000 pounds of marijuana.  it’s rare enough to become a nfl player or a drug dealer on that level.  doing both is unheard of.  for more on the different implications of this story, check out the reports from the chicago sun-times and chicago tribune.  after the jump, check out a copy of the federal complaint filed against hurd earlier today in dallas.  it contains a 5-month timeline of events that led to last night’s arrest.


the case of the heroic villain

09/15/11 3 Comments

the scene reads like a bad steven seagal movie:

In Benton Township, Michigan, two armed robbers wearing masks burst into a near-deserted Walgreens at 4:30 a.m. To pharmacist Jeremy Hoven, it was a prescription for trouble. So he filled it with hot lead.

however, an interesting moral and legal dilemma has emerged out of this real-life drama.   just a few days after hoven thwarted the robbery, walgreens fired the local hero for violating its “non-escalation policy” and its ban on firearms. hoven later responded with a wrongful termination lawsuit.  check out this good morning america report for security footage from the day in question.

i’m siding with walgreens on this one.  i support and appreciate the hoven’s actions in the moment, but i can’t cosign him having a gun there in the first place.  his “i didn’t know that guns weren’t allowed at the pharmacy” defense is ridiculous (not a commonplace thing but if he still had any doubts, he should’ve asked management before bringing a loaded weapon on the premises).  for some good pr, walgreens could have toss him a healthy severance package reward for saving the day, but the man deserved to be fired.

what do you think?

carlos boozer’s true hollywood story


when bulls pf carlos boozer decided to rent his la mansion out to prince, he didn’t expect it to turn into a lost chappelle show skit.  friend and fellow duke alum jay williams told the story on espn radio:

“Booz told me how he had this massive house…blue fountain waves kind of came down streaming water that led to the front door and all this great stuff.  And I remember him calling me, ‘Dude, you will never guess, I rode past my house like three times, I had no idea it was my house.’   Supposedly, Prince changed the front gate to the Prince sign, he changed the master bedroom to a hair salon, he changed the streaming blue waters that led to the front door to purple water, he knocked out walls, he changed the molding on top of the ceiling. Booz was livid. So pissed off, so angry…He put his Purple Rain stamp on it…Booz was like, ‘I was getting ready to go over there and beat this little man down.’ And dude was just like ‘Here, Boozer, here is a little check for about a million, it’ll take care of everything, get it back the way you want it.’ And Booz was like, ‘This little man is cool as hell.'”

boozer did sue him before peacing things up, but says things are good between the two now.
