kick it off



I'm the P, double-E, M-D-E-E
And one thing I hate, is a bitin MC
When I enter the party suckers always form a line
then they ease their way up, and try to bite my lines
I did thousands of shows, dissed many faces
and deal with new jacks, on a one-to-one basis
But every now and then a sucker MC gets courageous
and like an epidemic it becomes contagious
But never the least they all R.I.P
for all those unaware it means Rest In Peace
Cause M.D. -- stands for Microphone Doctor
And the capital P (capital P) capital M (capital M)
capital D-E-E's no doubt the chief rocker
Don't like to get ill, but if I have to I kill
So believe me boy, you gots to chill.. *echoes*
Parrish Smith of EPMD (You Gots Ta Chill)


I'm reminiscing right now. Like Pete Rock and CL Smooth. Reminiscing like Mary J on What's the 411. I miss it. Damn. I miss it. The smell of freshly cut grass. The summer heat. Kicking it with the dudes who you battle with. The roar of the crowd. I miss all of that. This is the time of the year that my body feels like it should be pushed more than I'm willing to push it. Even when I work out now...my body reminds me that this is the time of the year when I must be at my best. I haven't put on pads in 13 years...but I miss football. It was my first love. I still love her. I miss it.

Since it's that time of year, we gotta talk about it. The college football season is almost underway. The NFL training camps are beginning to open. It's almost time to kickoff the season. Let's break it down like this...good, bad, and ugly for your team(s)...college and or pro.

NFL
Atlanta Falcons

Good - ticket prices went down

Bad - Mike Vick is still in jail for fighting Sparky. We lost our starting tight end, running back, and cornerback. We just gave our #1 pick, Matt Ryan, a contract of 30 million and our offensive line sucks.

Ugly - We won 4 games last year...we won't win but 2 this year. There'll be more people in the parking lots than in the stands watching the game.

NCAA

South Carolina State University

Good - we're predicted to win our conference...again

Bad - We have to travel to Death Valley to play Clemson

Ugly - Our coach sucks. I don't think he's that good.

NCAA

Florida State

Good - the ACC ain't what it used to be

Bad - We still don't have a QB

Ugly - When is Bobby Bowden gonna sit his ass down???


What about your teams??? Hollatchaboi!

I hate football...and i don't care who has anything to say about it...but for some reason i will watch the superbowl...i do it every year...the only good thing about the nfl is reggie bush...and that's only becuz he's sexy...and he loses points for that for being with kim kardashin's funny made mouth...i don't know what his skill level is tho...

Dreamy said...

omigod!!!

i cant wait until college football season

you dont even need to ask who my team is cause you already know

and who will be glued to the tv is me,lol


ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL

The Jaded NYer said...

you know I root root root for the home team, always...

you might know them as the Team that Handed the Patriots their asses in February...

The NEEEEWWWWWW YOOOOOOORK GIIIIIIIIIIIIII-ANTS!!

[cue crazy cheerleading/dance team music]

I never got into college ball because my school was Division III... and we sucked ASS lol

Stew said...

SC State will NOT beat A&T!!! (that is still a rivalry right???)

do not follow college sports, so i do not really care.

as far as the pros go...i think Brett playing for a team that is not Green Bay is stupid, and i hope peyton & marvin gonna continue to show why they are one of the best QB WR combos ever.

that is all

Well I am a BIG BUCKEYE & Dallas Cowboy Fan. Can't wait to watch Football because nothing I mean abosolutly nothing is on Tv.
Well let me get started
Cowboys..
Good- Like our defense. Still a light in ass but we should be ok.

Bad- Verdict is still out on Tony Romeo. Can he carry this them

Ugly- Not one inccident this summer from the Cowboys players... and no Pacman Jones doesn't count. Ha..

Buckeyes

Good- returning and Great Defense again. Should win the Big Ten. Two key games.. USC & Mich.

Bad- Will loose in the Nat'l champ. again if face another SEC Team

Ugly- Schedule.

Holla back

Thats was me Who left the comment on Dallas Cowboys & Ohio State Buckeyes

Darius T. Williams said...

So funny...but um, I don't shit about sports (go figure, right?).

@ CapCity
Haaaaaa. The drunken post

@ Dreamy
I know LSU is your team. Glenn Dorsey is gone. So is your QB. They will be decent but Georgia is gonna win the SEC...beleee dat!

@ Jaded Santana
I think the Giants will be back in the mix this year. It's gonna be interesting to see how Eli Manning plays now that he has won it all.

@ Stew
Haaaaa! You are funny, bruh. I think A&T has beaten us like 3 times since my freshman year ('91). So, it's not a rivalry. LOL. We play in Greensboro this year. I'm looking forward to it.

I think Brett Favre needs to go sit down. Do you think a black quarterback would garner all of this fuss and attention?? Nope. They'd call him spoiled and arrogant.

The Colts have a lot to prove this year. I think it might be Tony Dungy's last year as a nfl coach.

@ Jeff S-Class
Dallas has enough talent to win the Super Bowl. They really do. But I don't know if they are mentally ready to take that next step. Romo has to step up. Period

Ohio State should win the Big 10 (sorry -1-...lol). That game vs USC will be huge.

@ Darius
Not a sports fan? Word? You live in a great sports town. Chicago fans are off the hook.

I grew up in Florida, so you can't help but like football. Not to mention, I graduated a Florida Gator.

However, I don't watch much football. Growing up I loved the Dallas Cowboys, but now I just follow the home team. We used to be the Greatest Show on Turf, but it seems we are slipping back into Lamb territory. The way I feel now -- I won't even read about what they are trying to do, I don't want to be emotionally invested.

College ball -- when I can catch them, it's the Gators all the way. Don't really care for other teams.

Football in the midwest just doesn't feel the same as back home. I used to go to "The Classic" every year, but here we get schools like Arkansas Pine Bluff - WTF! I need some FAMU or BCC to get me excited about The Classic. So since I'm not getting any of that, I'll probably be sitting in front of a movie on game day.

Eb the Celeb said...

COWBOYS ALL DAY BABY... YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS... DO I REALLY HAVE TO REP...

THE AMERICAN TEAM... THAT BLUE AND SILVER THAT YOU CANT DENY... ARE YOU SERIOUS

WE'RE GOING ALL THE WAY THIS YEAR SON....

WE GOT THE MISSILES ON OFFENSE

TO, MARION BARBER, JASON WITTEN, HOPEFULLY TERRY GLENN CAN STAY HEALTHY AND ROMO IF WE CAN KEEP THAT TRAMP JESSICA AWAY FROM THE FIELD

DEFENSE I ADMIT TO BEING A LITTLE WARY... THEY LET GO OF SOME KEY GUYS IN MY BOOK LIKE AKIN AYODELE... AND I STILL AM NOT SOLD ON THIS PACMAN THING... NEED TO GO SEARCHING FOR SOME CAMP FOOTAGE TO SEE WHO OUR BREAK OUT STARS WILL BE ON DEFENSE CUZ ROY WILLIAMS HAS BEEN SLACKING TOO...

BUT WE'LL FIGURE IT OUT.. THAT'S WHAT CAMP IS ALL ABOUT...

SO LET'S GET IT CRACKING...

AND KANDI BLACK JUST LOST A COUPLE COOL POINTS... GIRL YOU BETTA GET WITH IT... AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE SEXIN... CONCENTRATE ON THE FOOTBALL BOOTIES TO GET YOU THREW THE GAME

Keisha "Kitten" Isaacs said...

Hey Brother!

Football ain't my thing...but I respect those of you who love sports...but yo girl just ain't a sport fan...so on that note...I exit the room!...lol

Enjoy your Monday night football....

mlinz said...

You know I'm down with S. C. State been into them since before I was born. Did you play football at State? For some reason I remember you being on either the tennis or bowling team. My memory is getting bad, though. We have a challenging schedule this year with Clemson and NC A&T (ok, ok, I couldn't stop laughing at that one)so let's see how it goes. Even if we don't win against Clemson they will be talking about that 101 for months to come just like USC did. Even if we have lost OUR sound and now sound like a mini-Morris Brown.

I got them ATL Falcons all the way baby. Unlike you I don't think that the team was made up of one person (Vick) and as soon as the rest of yall (Vick and the rest of the team too) realize that and start working together, the better we will be. Really going to miss Warrick and Alge though. Training camp starts tomorrow and I'll be there all week helping out. You know I've been kicking it with them all summer.

By the way if you live in ATL, the training camp will have activities for kids this year and the events are free and open to the public. So KD bring the boys out, well at least D.

But I don't generally watch the game the way normal people do, I am too busy looking at it from a trainer's perspective. Just force of habit I guess.

Chocolate Boy Wonder....tell the waiter at Dolce to give better service.

Tha L said...

Football? BOOOO....

The closest I ever got to being a fan was when I was growing up in LA and the Raiders were there. Never really got into it tho, just enjoyed seeing the rowdy ass fans heading to the Coliseum for the games.

CapCity said...

TravelDiva said...

@ Rich
Florida is gonna be loaded. They'll contend with Georgia.

Sup with the Rams. They got old really quick. I like watching Torey Holt. He's a beast

That's one of the benefits to being here in the south. It truely is football country. Don't worry...there will be some HBCU games on tv. I'll keep you posted.

@ Eb the Celeb
Aight. We gonna see what the 'Boys gonna do. I think the deal for Pacman was a good move. Gotta keep him outta trouble and outta strip clubs, tho.

Weren't the Cowboys 'sposed to win it all last year? LOL. We'll see.

@ Keisha the Kitten
I hear you

@ mlinz
"Did you play football at State? For some reason I remember you being on either the tennis or bowling team." *crickets*

As for the Falcons, I'm hopeful that we'll only suck real bad instead of sucking really, really bad. LOL

Falcons camp is 50 miles from my house. I can't make it. Gas is tooooo damn high.

@ rezidl
I'ma tell that waiter about his lousy service. LOL

Redskins are gonna be pretty good. I dunno if they have enough to compete with the Giants and the Cowboys. But they'll be right there.

That coach at SC State is killin us. We need some new blood.

Mannnn, the Terps need a couple of good recruiting classes and they'll be ok.

So Cal vs Georgia for the national championship

@ CapCity
LOL

@ TravelDiva
The Olympics are right around the corner

12kyle said...

@ karrie b
LOL...um...wrong sport, sis

ShellyShell said...

Ahhh football. My 2nd favorite sport to watch(College bball all day)

My team...the dayum NINERS! I know...lol! I'mk about to date myself but I've loved them since Montana was drafted from Notre Dame! I used to go out to candlestick(when it was called that) to the games. I had an ex whose brother worked in the front office. Anyway, they're coming along I think they might be pretty good this year...not great though! My 2nd favorite team...cowboys! I've been to Texas Stadium so many times!! I'm a big TO fan even though he has mental issues. He's still the shyt! NFL is the shyt I go to early service so I'm posted on the couch watching Fox by 12:00!

College
I like LSU..they stay loaded! I remember when they could wear their shirts tucked up...lawd and we got to see those abs! That's what got me watching college ball....lol!

PrettyBlack said...

I was just rappin' that shit last night! Kyle you all up in my head mayne!

Dallas Cowboys-

Good- We got wild ass Pacman we're trying to build a strong defense,

Bad- Can Romo pull it off? Marion the fine ass Barbarian is gone...*weeps a likkle*

Ugly- Can muthafuckin' Romo pull it off?

12kyle said...

@ kandi black
My bad. I missed your comment earlier

Reggie Bush is a good player. I dunno if he'll be as great as they think he is.

I can't believe that he's about to wife that freak. LMAO!!! Clown!

12kyle said...

@ ShellyShell
Dayyyyum! You took it back to Candlestick Park. That's when the Niners were the cream of the crop. It's kinda strange to see them struggle right now.

LMAO @ you and Eb looking at bodies.

@ Rich
Thanks! That's unreal right there. If you had the players to run it...it'd be pretty hard to stop.

@ prettyblack
Great minds think alot!

Like the way that you broke it down. I think you ask a valid question. Can Romo get it done?

dessex said...

if you are from Oakland...then you bleed Raider Nation. 8 and 8 this year. Our D is going to be tough.
