We get a massive amount of tips in our inbox each week. Some are pretty interesting, but don't get published for one reason or another.
It's usually because they're just so absurd or really lack even the most tenuous of news angles to give them the go-ahead. Other times it's because they're just absolute horseshit. But every Friday until we get sick of running them, we'll present to you some of these not-so-shiny gems. All items should be treated as [Sic'd]. Enjoy...
Joakim Noah Just Adores Perry Farrell
Thought you guys would enjoy this pic of Joakim Noah this past Sunday at Lollapalooza checking out Snoop Dogg. The kid in the picture is my best friend Kevin who grabbed him as they saw the big clown walking along. Noah apparently was a big fan of the John Starks jersey he was rocking. The reason for the middle finger in between the beers is because the girls taking the pics were graduates of Georgia and chanted Go Bulldogs as they took the pic. Keep up the good work and enjoy.
And Here's Another Joakimpalooza Sighting...
Dog Pictures Are Blasphemous Now, Too?
Any way you can change the header with Vick and the dog?
It's quite disturbing and blasphemous.
I enjoy your publication, but this just isn't right.
Thank You, Sir, May I Have Another?
Came across your post while surfing. Only the most wretched lowlife would use such language.
Stu Scott Is No Fab Five Freddy
I was watching the 11 o'clock Sportscenter, and Stu Scott was giving his lead on an Eric Mangini story. He was listing great djs in hip hop history, a list that included "Professor Griff of Public Enemy."
As you probably know, Terminator X was the dj of Public Enemy for years, followed by DJ Lord. Professor Griff was the leader of the S1Ws, a sort of militant dance troupe, and as a result played a lesser role in the group's success.
I find it hilarious that Stewart Scott, who at 44 was certainly around during PE's prime, and who is often credited with bringing "hip hop culture" to Sportscenter and the WWL, has no clue who Public Enemy's dj was/is. Public Enemy is easily one of the top 5 most important/influential rap groups in history, and Terminator X is not only one of the finest hip hop djs in history, he is far from an unknown to anyone who has an even rudimentary knowledge of hip hop music. Kindly murder this phony on your site.
