Just as an addendum to yesterday's story about Tim Hardaway, he did apologize yesterday for making those comments about gay people. And the NBA promptly banned him from making any NBA related appearances during this weekend's All Star game extravaganza. In his apology, he said that as an African American, he knows all too well the pain he can cause from that type of hatred and bigotry. Athletes are so damn predictable its ridiculous..actually let me not limit this to athletes, because everyone in this society does it. They say something stupid, and then they apologize, "if they offended anyone" or for having a momentary lapse in judgement. I've said this before, but it would really be refreshing if someone would make some dumb ass comments, and then stand by them no matter what the public says. If its how they really feel, they should ride or die(sorry for using that expression but it was right on time here) with them. That is why I respect Frank Hargrove. He is a white delegate from VA, who said that black people should get over slavery, and then he said that the Jews should not apologize for killing Christ. When asked to apologize, he basically said hell no I meant what I said. Do I agree with his words? Not exactly, but I respect the fact that he will stand by his words. That's integrity baby!

As I am writing this one of my co-workers just tripped in the hallway, over nothing more than the carpet. I asked her if she was ok, but I didn't dare get up and help her because 1)she's 28 years old, and she's more than capable of getting up on her own and 2)I would have laughed and laughed right in her face. Who trips and falls over carpet? Perhaps its because she weighs 350lbs..

Tony Kornheiser, who debuted on Monday Night Football back in September, and a writer for the Washington Post, will be returning to local radio starting Tuesday, February 20th. Only a few people who know me really understand how much I admire this man. Not only does he have the job I really want, but he's an excellent writer as well. If he read my blog(and after I write this, I'm sending to him) or any of my writing, and I got his approval, I'd be quite happy. He gave up radio last year to focus on broadcasting football, but now he's back.

My ladyfriend is not coming in town this weekend, so all that trash I talked about getting lots of sex looks pretty dumb now. I make no apologies though, because she WILL be here next week, and the sex I was supposed to get rolls over into next week and then some. At least I think that's how it works. I wonder if someone I used to talk to is reading this and laughing at me right now because I'm not getting any..I also am mad at myself that I have smart ass rebuttals on ice, just waiting for someone to do just that. That is just sad..but like my main man Frank Hargrove, and unlike Tim "3 the" Hardaway, I stand by my dumb ass comments.

R - that was ugly about your co-worker, I think you may get sued under ADA (Americans With Disabilities) if this gets out.

Tim made me think of Kramer when I saw the clip. The fact that he felt so free to vehemently disrespect a group of people like that and no less than 48 hrs later claim he didn't mean it. Punk. That was no momentary lack of judgment...it was how he felt. stand by your views - even if they are ridiculous, lol.

Go Frank Hargrove. He has a point . . .when the heck are Blacks gonna get over slavery and stop playing the victim role, and why on Earth should Jews apologize for killing Christ? . . .Christianity wouldn't exist if it wasn't for that and, more importantly, my sins wouldn't be forgiven.

P.S. You are so mean for the fat joke.
