I found this clip of El DeBarge being interviewed by Brian McKnight. El comes clean about his battle with drugs, and according to him, he's kicked the habit. I surely hope so because El still has incredible talent, that he displays toward the end of the clip singing "Time Will Reveal" which he says that he wrote at 16. Watching El play piano and hitting all of the notes will give you chills. El, who will be 49 this year still looks good.
Michael Vick appeared on the "Gansta Grillz" radio show in Atlanta last weekend and stated that if he could play for any team in the NFL it would be the Carolina Panthers. Now this wouldn't be a problem if Vick was a free agent, but the last time I checked, Vick is under contract to the Philadelphia Eagles.
This may be one of the biggest incidents of disrespect that I've seen from an athlete. Michael Vick was an exiled player when the Eagles took a chance on him following his stint in prison on dog fighting charges. Tony Dungy placed his reputation on the line to back Vick for the Eagles. If Vick really meant the statement about playing for the Panthers, then he really didn't learn anything from his sordid ordeal, and his BET show is a farce. I understand that Vick wants to be a starter in the NFL, but he owes the Eagles an apology immediately.

Paterson wasn't even elected into his position so before he embarrasses himself even more, just do the right thing for the residents of the state that you serve.
