:09 Here’s some sports for ya. Your Pittsburgh Pirates are looking good out the gate. The opening day loss to the Phillies (1-0) was not bad considering they faced the best pitcher in baseball, Harry Leroy "Roy" Halladay III, aka "Doc". But then they take the next two…c’mon Pittsburgh.
:08 In case you’re wondering, Bobby Jackson from Hazelwood won the tickets to see The Flow Band last week at the First Friday Par-Tay. Not only did he name all the Magnificent Seven, he sang the theme song. Very impressive. Alright Zik, alright, whatever…back to sports! Oh yeah, here they are. Yul Brenner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, James Coburn and Horst Bucholz…and just so you know, Mr. Rod Doss is a “7” man and knows his stuff. He’ll tell you “nobody gives him his guns and tells him to ride”!!
:07 I don’t know what happened to Ron Artest but this “Metta World Peace” guy is playing like a man possessed!!!
:06 Speaking of Lakers, I don’t see how Kobe’s not your NBA MVP this year. Leading the league in scoring all year and he clearly doesn’t have the supporting cast that LeBron has.
:05 Last Laker piece…Derek Fisher who? Ramon Sessions can play. And Andrew Bynum will you please shut up and just play, c’mon man!
:04 Brother Ash…Thank You Mmmmaaannn!!
:03 Ok my bad. Tiger ain’t back not totally. But he’s moving in the right direction and he’s still the #1 draw in golf.
:02 On the sports talk shows why is there always a White guy doing the serious talk while being surrounded by two or three Black guys being the clowns and crackin’ the jokes. Why can’t a Black guy run the show and have two or three White guys be the jesters sometimes. I am just saying!!
:01 Man forget “Zek,” whatever…If you weren’t at the Champions First Friday with The Flow Band not only did you miss the legendary reggae masters but, you missed the Fabulous Diamond Models. If there are seven taller, sexier, more beautiful women anywhere all at one time I don’t know where?…Oh yea, my bad…there is The Savoy on Saturday Nights…upstairs!
No. 1—Smokin’ Jim Frazier was at the Par-Tay…No seriously, I am not jokin. He was there, I saw him. No. 2—“Rayco”…Un-Be-Lieve-A-Ble, Man!!
