Rapper Lil' Wayne continues to infiltrate the WWL with his blog posts and ESPN's sports nation seems to be embracing him wholeheartedly. The editors seemed reluctant to let him sully their pristine pages with his nonsensical sports jizzle, but now appear to be stuck with him. Wayne unveiled his second blog entry yesterday and it continues to be equally bewildering and mesmerizing.
First of all, wow. I am overwhelmed by the response to my first blog entry. I think I read the first 402 comments. A lot of them were crazy. A thousand comments in the first day? That makes me happy. I've been telling people, "Man I got a blog on ESPN," and they go, "Yeah, boy, but you're latest song is crazy!" and I'm like, "I know, but did you see my blog?" I am so excited to have this opportunity.
In his post, we also find out that Lil' Wayne has a tattoo of ESPN on his arm, he likes the Rays to win the World Series, and Brett Farve(sic) is just blowing his mind:
Like, Brett Farve? Come on. He's like 3900 years old and he threw for six touchdowns? He's never even done that in his whole career. And he does it with the Jets when no one is expecting nothing from him. There's a reason why he's my favorite player of all-time. He's getting better with time, as scary as that sounds. It's a great thing to watch. He still takes those shots. He still takes those risks. And those receivers were amazing, and the line, man, the offensive line was unexplainable.
Even though they're extremely popular, ESPN editors appear to be staging their own silent protest by outfitting Wayne's post with 4th-grade book report style headlines: "LIL WAYNE BLOGS FOR US:WORLD SERIES? "I SEE THE TAMPA BAY RAYS." Catchy. UPDATE: Here's another reason why Lil Wayne probably shouldn't be blogging, via Sons Of Bill Simmons: The original ESPN Wayne blog had this:
First off, my heart goes out to Jason Collier on the Jaguars and the kicker from Tampa Bay, Matt Bryant, who lost his baby. He went out and played, too, on Sunday. That, to me, is the definition of amazing.
