Chris Brown Scores A #1 With "Deuces"

Chris Brown has scored an improbable #1 record with "Deuces" on the Billboard R&B chart. The song, taken from the mixtape "Fan of a Fan" has gained momentum over the last month, currently charts at #24 on the Billboard 100 chart and still gaining steam. Brown also has a role in the #1 movie from last week "Takers" so this has been a pretty good week for the young Mr. Brown.

Money Doesn't Buy Intelligence!

T.I. and his wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle were arrested in Los Angeles last night after police smelled marijuana smoke coming out of their Maybach. T.I. just got out of federal prison last December related to weapons charges, and is a convicted felon. I'm not sure of the legal ramifications that will result from T.I.'s arrest but obviously money doesn't buy intelligence.

Props To Bush?

President Barack Obama addressed the nation last night to inform all of us that the war in Iraq is over. The President who did oppose the surge in Iraq, admitted that although he and former president George W. Bush had opposing views on the war that Bush had a commitment to overall success in supprting the surge.

Conservatives are focused on the fact that President Obama opposed the surge, but he finished what was started which has lead to ultimate success in Iraq.

8 Babies, 6 Mothers For Cromartie!

I found this interesting article by Mitch Albom of the Detroit Free Press chronicling the exploits of New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie. Unfortunately the exploits being discussed aren't on the football field as Cromartie has 8 children by 6 different women, with 4 of them being the 3 year-old age range. Cromartie, who is 26 years-old had to be fronted $500,000 of this year's salary to take care of paternity issues. He's became something of laughing stock when recently on the show "Hard Knocks" he seemed to have difficulty remembering the names of all of his children.

I'm not going to judge Cromartie, but he'll have continuous pressure on him keeping up with the child support payments, and being a member of the "Not For Long" league his career could be over at any time. I guess he never met birth control that he found acceptable.

Jordan and Bobcats Lend A Hand To Area Schools!

Michael Jordan, the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats saw a need for Charlotte area schools and took it upon himself to help out since funding for middle school athletics has been cut by $1.25 million. The team has donated $250,000 towards middle school athletics which has spurred donations from other sources according to the Charlotte Observer.

This is a great gesture by Jordan and the team. Physical activity is necessary for everyone, and with budget cuts affecting all school systems, the Bobcats really stepped up when needed.
