And then, there were 30

Posted by and1grad on September 30, 2008


Days that is. Thirty days until I turn 30. Woah. Oddly enough, this is a year I’ve been looking forward to for a lil while now. I rarely look forward to birthdays but I’ve just had a good feeling about 30. That said, I had a good feeling about 25…and nothing. Where do I get off being excited about 30? Well, I’ve always said that I’m gonna hit 30 running. Get in better shape. Get my money right. Just turn it up a notch in general. Might be buying a house this year. I’m steadily advancing in my chosen profession. Things are good…but they could be better. Maybe I’ll get to celebrate it by watching Obama win the Presidency. I think 30 aka Version 3.0 is gonna be something to see. Cant wait to get started.

Ok, economy…I’ll help out

Posted by and1grad on September 29, 2008

So the economy is in DIRE need of a “hookup.” Seems everything is falling on its face and no one can get credit. Fine, America. I’ll make a call. I know a guy. In fact, I know THE guy. He’ll bail us all out…but at a price.

Yes folks. The Million Dollar Man, Ted Dibiase. In need of funds, he always rolled legit. Didnt even carry it himself, had his negro friend/hired help do that. Here’s the thing though…if you dont pay him back…you’re likely to catch a bodyslam, a suplex or two, and have it all end in a “Million Dollar Dream.”

Fool’s Gold

Posted by and1grad on September 25, 2008

EVERY time I hear a quote from one of our numerous black athletes, I cringe. Not because what they say is so commonly stupid, but that the way they say it is stupid. The most recent quote I heard/read was from Stephon Marbury. He said, concerning his potential release from the Knicks, “There wouldnt be no negotiation…” I know its nitpicky but this shit drives me crazy. Why cant our athletes at least give the impression that they’re intelligent? Hell, lie to us. I dont care. Just dont make me think that you’re a fool with money. This is one of the things I love about Kobe. He ALWAYS sounds intelligent. He didnt even GO to college and he sounds twice as smart as some of these ballplayers that SUPPOSEDLY did. Shameful.

Oh, and then there’s this Josh Howard, of the Dallas Mavericks, character. He seems to aspire to perfect sounding like an absolute fool. Said something about not taking part in the national anthem because he’s black. Really? Who thinks that? And better yet, who actually SAYS it? They say a fool and his money are soon parted. But clowns like these remind me of when Dave Chappelle was doing his Rick James impersonation and said “They shoulda never gave you niggas money!!”
