Michael Wilbon has the kind of job that most sports fanatics would love to have. He writes a column for the Washington Post, which just so happens to be one of the most prestigious newspapers in the country. He covers the NBA for both ABC and ESPN. He gets to do a television show with his best friend, and at least two or three times a week you can hear him make an appearance on sports talk radio. He basically is considered to be at the top of his game, and I definitely look up to him. I actually had an opportunity to meet him back in 2000 at a Black History Month Symposium at the Smithsonian, and he talked to me and gave me excellent advice. I say all this because Mr. Wilbon suffered a mild heart attack on Monday. He is recovering in an Arizona hospital, and he's scheduled to go home today. I don't know if he reads my blog, but I DO know I have sent it to him on more than one occasion. So Mr. Wilbon, whether you are reading this or not, I hope you get well soon.

About 3 weeks ago or so, Rudy Giuliani gathered all the members of his campaign together and said something like this:

"Ladies and gentlemen, I think we should take a Florida vacation. Bring your family, friends, etc, and lets go to Florida and get tanned, meet some people, and maybe we'll do a little campaigning, but let's not sweat it too much. It doesn't look like I have a shot at winning this or any other primary, but we can certainly look like we are efforting. If it works, we have momentum for the next primary. If it doesn't, then goddammit we will have had a 3 week Florida vacation, and we'll endorse the winner of this primary. Now let's get out there and win...kind of".

So yesterday when I noticed that he not only lost the Florida primary to McCain, but then he allegedly backed him shortly after his loss, I was not at all surprised. Giuliani's window of opportunity started on 9/11/01 and closed around 2005 when people became increasingly disgruntled about the war. He should have caught the country while they were stil gruntled.

Thank God I Found You (remix) - Mariah Carey

This song contains what I like to call a headphone moment. A headphone moment usually occurs with a song you've always liked, but it isn't until you are listening with headphones that you truly hear a part of the song that blows you away. My headphone moment for this song starts at the 3:50 moment when Mariah goes back and forth between singing lead and background vocals, but she does so in a much deeper voice than usual. Women who SING in husky tones are very sexy to me. A woman with a husky voice in a non-singing setting is just downright disgusting.

Maybe sports dude's lesson to you should be to take better care of yourself.

The Guiliani window was only open for a year afer 9/11 when everyone were calling him the Mayor of America. Well everyone except people here in New York because he left this place in shambles and it had nothing to do with the Twin Towers. If I donated to his campaign, I would sue his daffy duck sounding, comb-over having ass because he basically conned people into paying for a month long Florida vacation for him and his "people". I want some fun in the sun too, beeeyotch! Sorry, I can't stand Fooliani! hahahahaaa

As a chick with a somewhat deep voice and who can only sing in karoake bars, I'm mildly offended, Black Larry David!!!! hahahahahahaha
