This Week in the News-Sports Edition

After the heaviness of the series, I want today’s post to take a different turn.  Please don’t let this be the last time you discuss any of these topics with your loved ones.  Keep the dialogue open so your family and friends feel comfortable talking about these topics and hopefully they will not become victims.  This week, there have been a few things that I find interesting that relate to the world of sports.  So, I’ll be sharing the facts and stating my opinion.

First, yes my Jacksonville Jaguars lost last week to the Philadelphia Eagles.  And my crazy self gave the Eagles and Michael Vick a shout out, COMPLETELY forgetting who their opponent was on Sunday.  I did go out to watch the game (thanks to my soror @ISayWord for coming with me) and ended up leaving before the game was over because I was SO disappointed…But the two match-ups I’m anxious to see this Sunday are the Eagles vs. the Washington Redskins and my Jaguars vs. the Indianapolis Colts.  My money is definitely on the Eagles.  I really want my Jags to win, but if they play like they did against the Eagles, this game is going to the Colts… (sadly).

Speaking of Jaguars, looks like Kassim Osgood found himself in a bit of trouble.  He and Roar cheerleader Mackenzie Putnal were attacked by Putnal’s ex-boyfriend.  Julian Bartletto broke into Mackenzie’s family home, where she and Kassim were watching tv.  Julian pistol whipped them both and the family dog.   Putnal had recently issued a restraining order against Bartletto.  She was able to secure a gun and the two exchanged gun fire while Osgood jumped from a 2nd floor window and ran to a neighbors house to call police.  Thankfully, no one was seriously injured and Bartletto was arrested.  And I don’t know too much about football, but I don’t think the cheerleaders and players are supposed to fraternize with each other.  And don’t get me started on the 30 year old man being with the 19 year old girl…I wonder if her momma and daddy knew he was over there.

If you’re a reality tv junkie like me, then you know that VH1 has revealed the cast of the 1st season of “Football Wives” and the 2nd season of “Basketball Wives”.  Now, I’m disappointed with the network because, once again, they’ve added someone who is a FORMER wife on “Basketball Wives”.  At least with the new show, most of the women are actually married…and seem to have a lot of things going for them.  We’ll see how these shows play out. 

So guys, what sports news do you have?  Or what news in general do you have?  Feel free to share.  Who are you pulling for during Week 4?  And what are your thoughts on this Kassim and Mackenzie situation?  I really want to know what you guys think.  Enjoy your weekend, and until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!

By the way, I purposefully didn’t talk about the fact Lebron thinks he’s getting backlash because he’s black, Superhead aka Karrine Steffans has a new book coming out for couples, and the great episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” from last night. #thatisall
