The story of Kevin Clash, the voice and puppeteer of Elmo and some other Sesame Street characters has been floating around for a little while now and while I was aware of it, I really dug into it after hearing a debate on local talk radio.

Pacquiao KO's Hatten

Pound-for-Pound Pacquiao KO’s Hatton

One of the many "rights" Manny Pacquiao delivered to the face of Ricky Hatton on May 2, 2009.  Manny Pacquiao was the favorite in this light welter-weight fight since he dismantled Oscar De-La Hoya in a previous bout.  Pacquiao has certainly become a ring tactician, with speed, power and overall ring generalship and control of his opponents.  But not many Read more…

Swine flu overload

It’s The Flu – You Swine!

The recent outbreak of the Swine Flu does have serious implications if things are not handled properly, but the barrage of media attention it’s getting is driving people into a panic.  As serious as the Swine Flu can become, I don’t think people realize that over 200,000 people get the flu virus every year and 36,000 die from it.  Those Read more…

Barack Obama

The 100 Days Overkill of President Obama

April 29th has been a hell of a day, with every news network killing themselves with the 100 day milestone of President Obama.  Don’t get me wrong, I like Barack Obama and what he stands for, but I do not recall all these daily milestones for any other president, but I guess things in our society have become so "instant" Read more…

President Obama : 50 Days in.

As I mentioned before, I listen to radio shows of Presidents harshest critics quite a bit.  Rush, Hannity and the insane Mark Levin (although I can only stomach him before has has his daily “spaz” attack), but I think it is always a good idea to hear what people have to say, whether you agree with it or not.  It Read more…

Teen punched and kicked in custody

Female teen attacked in holding cell.

A kick, slammed  into a wall, dragged to the ground by her hair and punched in the back or back of the head a couple times, is what you’ll see in this video and no, it’s not Mixed Martial Arts.  It’s a male officer and a male co-worker (that seems uncomfortable with what takes place, but does nothing to stop Read more…

Chris Brown and Rihanna

What’s the deezy Chris Breezy?

Now I’m not one for all this show biz gossip and drama, but the young ladies I coach are fans of Chris Brown, and this story came as a bit of a shock to me.  Chris seemed like a clean-cut, focused and talented young man.  So to hear of his beating a woman and then finding out that the woman Read more…

Barack Obama President

Waiting for Obama tickets that didn’t exist.

Driving out to the Harborside Event Center at about 2 am, I had a bad feeling about the 1500 tickets that were being given away for President Obama’s town hall style meeting in Fort Myers, Florida on February 10.  As I arrived, it was obvious that I was too late. There were quite a few hundred people already in the Read more…
