… what his mama named his dumb-ass in the first place: Chad Johnson. I bet the change was requested by his fiance (Evelyn Lozada from Basketball Wives) who just realized she could be “Mrs. Ochocinco” in a few months.

If you’re a Chad-whatever-his-last-name fan, time to buy a new jersey again.

JAN. 24 UPDATE:: So the Bears f*@ked it up! At least the Steelers are going to the Superbowl and I predict they’re going to win… I sure hope those fools don’t shame me!

Okay, it’s 12:30pm and the NFC Championship game between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers recently started. Before we get too deep in the game, let me throw out my prediction: ” It’s going to be another Black Superbowl Sunday because the Bears and Steelers are gonna thug it out in Superbowl XLV!”  — The Blog Vixen

I have spoken… place your bets accordingly.

I’m sure a lot of people did some scary, regretful s#$t last night… including one of the latest losers added to the Boston Celtics, Mr. Shaquille O’Neal:

(Youtube strikes again, please click the link to watch)

In case you didn’t recognize the grill, Shaq’s co-star is his fiance and former Flavor of Love winner Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander. Ahhh, love and basketball.

In the Miami Heat’s opening preseason game against the Detroit Pistons, it took Dwyane Wade less than four minutes to strain his right hamstring… SMH

Wade didn’t return to the game and no word on his condition. But depending on the injury, hamstrings can take a couple of weeks to a few months to heal. I hope LeBron is ready to carry a team again!

The world can stop hating on Delonte West for “allegedly” sleeping with Gloria James, the mother of LeBron James… I think. The former Cavalier recently tried to squash rumors at a press conference when a reporter had the nerve to ask: Yo, did you sleep with LeBron’s mom or what?

During the 2010 NBA Playoffs, word on the street was Ms. Gloria and Mr. West were having an “intimate relationship.”  And when LeBron found out, he played poorly causing the Cavs to lose its chance at advancing to the Finals. Some even blamed LeBron’s decision to leave Cleveland on the “West Affair.” (Whatever, LeBron left because everyone other than Moe Williams sucked!)

And you’ll never guess what West had to say in response: “I come from an era where you don’t say nothing bad about someone’s parent, so not at all.’’

I don’t know what saying something bad about someone’s parents has anything to do with sleeping with someone’s mom… but I guess we’ll accept that answer. Next time Delonte, just say “no!”

As you may or may not know, Mr. West was traded by the Cavs, dissed by the Timberwolves, and somehow popped up in Boston with a job. So check him out this season, in his green and white, getting his a$% whooped by the Lakers!

For the first time in the Heisman’s 75-year history, a player will have to give back the famed trophy. Unfortunately, that playa is our boy Reggie Bush. Repo date: end of this month!

The NCAA recently ruled that Bush was ineligible to receive the trophy back in 2005. Why? Because he accepted money and perks (just like every other star player in college does) while playing for USC.

USC already gave back its replica of the trophy but now the university’s 2004 Bowl Championship title may be snatched. Ouch! Of course USC is not going to let that ride, so they appealed the NCAA’s decision… no word yet on how that turned out.

Will the Heisman Trust let the 2005 runner-up Vince Young have the honor instead? I don’t think so! They rather leave that year’s awardee blank.

Forget Kate, Cromartie Plus 8

Posted: September 1, 2010 in Ballers

New Jersey Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie has been getting a lot of flack lately. Not because he has eight kids by six women, Maury Povich style (you ARE the father)… that’s old flack.

Blogs have been trashing the baller for struggling to remember his kids’ names in recent footage on HBO’s documentary series Hard Knocks. Give the dude a break… anyone with eight kids gets a pass in my book! And from watching the video, I think he did damn good. He not only went thru all eight names with minimal hesitation (we’re going to let “daughter” slide as a valid name), he had ages too! See the countdown for yourself, starting at the 1:22 mark:

But there are two sides to every story. Cromartie recently pulled HBO’s card by going public that the director made him re-shoot the scene and asked that he pause between each name. Staged “reality” shows… SMH

Regardless, I give him two thumbs up… good luck this season AC!

Food for Thought: According to the National Center for Health Statistics, 72% of new babies were born out of wedlock to black baby mamas and daddys, compared to 28% among whites and 17% among Asians.

There’s a new invention called the condom… google it!
