Happy Friday, folks! I am in a GREAT mood! So much so I’m dancing, singing, and probably having my co-workers give me the #side-eye…but I’m ok with that. Since we’re gearing up for the Super Bowl, today’s Black History Month fact relates to-you guessed it-football!
Tony Dungy, former head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, was the first Black head coach of an NFL team to win the Super Bowl when the Colts defeated the Chicago Bears during Super Bowl XLI.
Since we’re all expecting to party this Sunday (I’m going for the Steelers, despite my feelings about Ben Roethlisberger), today’s “This Week in the News” post will highlight those who probably stopped partying a while ago…
First up, looks like Halle Berry is having a nasty custody battle with hunky ex-model Gabriel Aubry over their 2 year old daughter, Nahla. Now, of course their friends are taking sides, with Halle’s friends claiming Gabriel is a racist jerk and Gabriel’s friends accusing Halle of sending expletive filled texts. Why is it when the love is gone adults get stupid and start acting like children instead of PROTECTING their children??? If their main concern is the well-being of Nahla, shouldn’t they work out their differences (in private) and do what is best for the child? And I will never understand why people have offspring with people they don’t like. But that’s another post for another day…Oh, and if Gabriel really called Halle the “N” word, he needs to get dealt with.
We won’t talk about this long, but why are journalists surprised their getting attacked in Egypt? I love Anderson Cooper, but just because you’re loved in the U.S. doesn’t mean people overseas love you. People are upset, there’s social unrest, and people are behaving irrationally. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m staying as far away from Egypt as possible.
It appears people are a little suspicious of Chelsea Clinton’s husband, Marc Mezvinksy. The former Wall Street broker left his cushy job at G3 Capital Management to start hitting the slopes in Wyoming. I think something fishy’s going on, but others (i.e. my “auntie” Madeline) thinks Marc was over the pressure of worker as a broker and wanted a more relaxed life. Well, I hope he didn’t jump on the Clinton train thinking he was gonna coast through the rest of his life.
Super Bowl XLV– I think the Steelers are going to win. And I’m excited about the Super Bowl I’m going to. I’m not telling where I’m going only because I don’t want it to be any more saturated with folk that it already probably will be. I can say it will be hosted by the drummer of a band I LOVE!!! If you follow me on Twitter I may let it slip on Sunday! 😉
What’s going on in your worlds? Anything happening in the news I didn’t touch on that you want to discuss? If you plan on drinking this Sunday, please make sure you drink and drive responsibly. We don’t need any senseless accidents, and I don’t want any of you to get in trouble with the law! Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
