Power Hour on Dale Earnhardt Jr.!

Dale Earnhardt Jr.Dale Earnhardt Jr. was in one hell of a giving mood last night -- dude bought drinks for more than 800 people who walked into his North Carolina bar.

It all went down at the Whisky River bar in Charlotte -- which is owned by the NASCAR stud. We're told Dale decided to pick up the tab for every drink ordered in his place between 8-9pm.

Bartender Shawn Southern -- who was also on VH1's "Tool Academy" -- says the bill was "a ridiculous amount of money" ... but Dale made sure to treat the staff to a "very generous" tip.



And then...there are the Atlanta Hawks...... something went wrong.......in that 4th quarter:

Bye Bye.......Urban Meyer

From ESPN.com:

 


Meyer to coach final game at Sugar Bowl

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida coach Urban Meyer, who was admitted to a hospital because of chest pains following the Southeastern Conference championship game, is stepping down because of health concerns.
Meyer resigned Saturday, calling it quits after five seasons in Gainesville and two national titles. He goes into the bowl game with a 56-10 record at Florida that includes a 32-8 mark in league play and a school-record 22-game winning streak ended early this month against Alabama.
Meyer, 45, says he consulted with his family, his doctors, school president Bernie Machen and athletic director Jeremy Foley before deciding it is in his best interest to focus on his health and family.
Meyer will hold a news conference in New Orleans on Sunday afternoon and will coach his final game in the Sugar Bowl against Cincinnati on New Year's Day.
"I have given my heart and soul to coaching college football and mentoring young men for the last 24-plus years and I have dedicated most of my waking moments the last five years to the Gator football program," Meyer said in a statement. "I have ignored my health for years, but recent developments have forced me to reevaluate my priorities of faith and family.
"After consulting with my family, Dr. Machen, Jeremy Foley and my doctors, I believe it is in my best interest to step aside and focus on my health and family."
"Coach Meyer and I have talked this through and I realize how hard this was for him to reach this decision," Foley said in a statement. "But, the bottom line is that Coach Meyer needed to make a choice that is in the best interest of his well being and his family. I certainly appreciate what he has meant to the University of Florida, our football program and the Gator Nation. I have never seen anyone more committed to his players, his family and his program. Above all, I appreciate our friendship."
Meyer helped the Gators win two national titles in five years at Florida. He is the only coach to win two BCS titles.
A three-time national coach of the year, Meyer is 95-18 in nine seasons.
Meyer came to Florida from Utah, where he closed out his stint with 16 consecutive wins. He began his head coaching career at Bowling Green in 2001, where he engineered the top turnaround in NCAA Division I-A football, showing a six-win improvement from the previous season. The Falcons rebounded from a 2-9 record with their first winning season (8-3) since 1994.

Hump Day.....News & Views

It is indeed.....A Wednesday......so it must be "Hump Day".   But this is a special "Hump Day",  considering the time of year it is.


Two more shopping days before Christmas.....

Yes.....Christmas 2009.   Are you done with your list?   Have you ....checked it twice?   Have you waited until the absolute......last minute?   A "Boo" for you ....if you have.

Here's what we........are following:   Courtesy of Yahoo Sports:


Vick wins Eagles' courage award (AP)

FILE - In this Dec. 6, 2009, file photo, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick(notes) smiles as he prepares for an NFL football game against the Atlanta Falcons in Atlanta. Vick won the Ed Block Courage Award, voted on by his teammates on the Philadelphia Eagles, after the once-disgraced star quarterback returned to the league after spending 18 months in a federal prison for his role in a dogfighting ring.
Michael Vick's peers appreciate his tough journey back to the NFL. Vick won the Ed Block Courage Award, voted on by his teammates on the Philadelphia Eagles. The once-disgraced star quarterback returned to the league after spending 18 months in a federal prison for his role in a dogfighting ring. "It means a great deal to me," Vick said Wednesday.

You know.......the "haters" will still hate.....and those PETA folks will have their say.....but .....this is a good thing for Vick....and his family.

Braves, Glaus agree on 1-year contract (AP)

FILE - In this Oct. 1, 2009, file photo, St. Louis Cardinals' Troy Glaus(notes) hits a double off Cincinnati Reds pitcher Carlos Fisher(notes) to drive in a run during the sixth inning of a baseball game in Cincinnati. A person with knowledge of the negotiations tells The Associated Press on Wednesday, Dec. 23, 2009, that the Braves have reached a preliminary agreement on a one-year contract with Troy Glaus, who is likely to move to first base with Atlanta.   The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal is not final.
The power-hungry Atlanta Braves are hoping longtime third baseman Troy Glaus can fill the team's void at first base. The Braves have reached a preliminary agreement on a one-year contract with Troy Glaus, a person with knowledge of the negotiations to The Associated Press on Wednesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal is not final.

Honestly.....I have not done the research.   Who is this guy......and .....why have I never heard of him?   

Henry's teary fiancee speaks at funeral (AP)

Seini Henry, daugther of Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry, shows a message to Henry before a memorial service in Westwego, La., Tuesday, Dec. 22, 2009. Henry, who grew up in nearby Belle Chasse, died Thursday, Dec. 17, after falling out of the back of a pickup truck driven by his fiancee, Loleini Tonga.
Chris Henry's fiancee wept as she spoke about the late Cincinnati Bengals receiver Tuesday, saying that while she often got credit for helping him stay clear of trouble, he changed her life as well. Henry, 26, was killed after he fell out of the bed of pickup truck driven by his fiancee, Loleini Tonga, during what police called a domestic dispute.

Why.....is this women.....not in jail?   She was.....driving that truck.....wasn't she?


Things.......I think....I think:

That ....."Christmas Spirit"......is only for all people.....under the age of 10.

After that.......it's a dog eat dog fight......at malls all across this great nation.


How did .......I ever get around......without my GPS Garmin?


I think......I'll do a ham for Friday......as in warming a fully cooked,  sliced, spiral  one.


I wish.......one day......in my lifetime.....I can take the whole month of December...off.


But.....you gotta eat.....and I do kind of enjoy.....some of the finer things in life.


Have.......a great "Hump Day".

Things ....We Learned......From the Week-end


According to the  scientific calendar......


Winter officially got here at 12:01.....this morning.....this 21st day of December.


However........there's people .......from Virginia to Massachusetts........that would swear....winter came a few days earlier.   As in that blizzard which hit Friday and Saturday.


If not for the 4,000 automobile accidents in Virginia alone......the thousands of stranded airline passengers all along the northeast corridor......


The snow ........was breathtakingly beautiful.......in New York City's,  Central Park.  (pictured)





Things........we learned:


The University of Georgia  mens' basketball team may not be as bad as advertised.  The upset Illinois ,  70-67.


The "Lady Dogs"......of that same school........may be even better than advertised.  They are undefeated.......at  11--0.


The Atlanta Falcons......have ....."heart".   They go into a cold and windy .....Meadow lands,  NJ.........and beat the NY Jets.


The New Orleans Saints......came crashing back down to earth.   Told you!


Why don't..........the Minnesota Vikings......look anything like the world beaters they were....just a month ago?


Are the Cincinnati Bengals........cursed?   First the tragedy of Chris Henry earlier in the week.....then yesterday......the lose a heart-breaker to San Diego .....27-24......on the last play of the game.


The best game .......I saw?    Definitely ........the Pittsburgh - Green Bay  shoot out.   The Steelers had 503 yards.......passing.    Wow!


The college  bowl season.......is in full swing.......wake me on Jan 1st.......when the real games start.


So.........I do.........indeed......feel smarter..........You?

Love.......A Fight.......& Death

I am sure.......she didn't mean what she said.

I am also sure....he didn't mean.....what he said.   For they were lovers.....had children together.    She was his fiance ......

They had a fight.    She took off in a pick-up truck.   He jumped on the back.   He never lived ....to tell his side.   For he.....is dead.

Cincinnati Bengal receiver,  Chris Henry........died today.....of multiple head wounds ....from falling off  that truck.    That truck driven by his fiance.

Details are sketchy at best.    But ......we do know......Chris Henry ......is dead.

Why?

He was only 26 years old.   

Why?

Love........a fight.......then death.....

Why? 


From the Charlotte Observer:

NFL's Chris Henry dies after Charlotte accident

Rev. Al..........To the Rescue.......But for Who?


From  GaPeach913:

Al is keeping it black!
Al Sharpton Blasts Tiger Woods for Lack of Mistress Diversity

The Rev. Al Sharpton held a press conference today to blast Tiger Woods for the lack of diversity among his mistresses. Sharpton claims that the lack of African-American women among Woods’ harem will have a negative affect on the black community, specifically young black girls.

“Why is it that a man who calls himself black can’t bring himself to cheat on his wife with a black woman?” said Sharpton, speaking to a group of supporters in Harlem. “What does it say to young black girls everywhere when you pass them over? Shame on you, Tiger Woods. What would your daddy say?”

Sharpton, who has long championed taking black women as mistresses, said that today’s black athletes need to stop neglecting black women when it comes to extramarital affairs, and should follow the examples of positive black role models such as Jesse Jackson and Martin Luther King, Jr., both of whom cheated on their wives with black women. Sharpton also stressed that cheating with African-American women would help the black community financially by giving black girls the chance to sell their stories to tabloids and gossip magazines.

Added Sharpton, “I’m not asking you to not cheat on your wives, I’m just asking you to give back to your own community.”

A Serena........Sighting

It's not too often......in this small, southern, college town....

We are lucky enough to  have a Serena Williams sighting...but .....it has happened:

Serena's charity drive continues in Athens || OnlineAthens.com


 

 

Introducing.........Turner Gill

Because.......he is a black man......and married to a white woman.....

Turner Gill has had a very long wait........to get into the big time college football arena.   A graduate of the University of Nebraska.....a star quarterback .......this man bid his time as an assistant coach.....before finally taking a head coaching job at Buffalo.

Buffalo?   No ......not that Buffalo.    This was .....the University of Buffalo.  A college team that had just 16 wins in 9 years.    9 years!

Gill wins 20.......in just three years......with really no Division I players......playing against.....Division I schools.

Why?   None of the big schools would touch him.

Gill  is now.....on the big screen.......the big stage....(if you can call Kansas big league).

But it is a step up.   We applaud Kansas for stepping up and making a statement.   The year is almost 2010.    Judge a man for his ability........not......a predetermined belief......of old white guys.

Turner Gill has proven.........he can coach.....and he can recruit........

It's a shame.....it took this long......to get ......a real job.

Things From the Week-end.......


It has been......(with all due respect for the man himself.....Brook Benton)


Raining for seemingly days.....in this small, southern, college town.   And foggy too.  The drought of 2008....is a distant memory.  I saw frogs......hopping along the highways.

Anyway......from the week-end:

The Atlanta Hawks.......have won 4 in a row.

The Atlanta Falcons.....have lost 6 of their last 8.

The best thing......I saw?   The Philadelphia- New York game......45-38!

The worst?    The Army-Navy game......3-0....at the half.

Congratulations........Mark Ingram......Heisman Trophy winner.......

Kudos........to the University of Kansas.......for hiring Turner Gill  (a black coach) to lead its football team.

Happy Trails.......Tiger Woods......taking an indefinite leave of absence......

Have the jokes........stopped........yet?

Hope you & yours.......had a great week-end.

The Latest......From...."The Young, Black, & Fabulous

Ashanti TERRORIZED By Texting!+Shawne Merriman SUES Tila Tequila!+Gangsta Boo ARRESTED!







Ashanti’s got a textstalker.  31 year old Indiana “fitness expert” Devar Hurd has been sending lewd and graphic messages to Ashanti, her mama, and her sister.  All about Ashanti.  He’s been saying he’s jealous of her relationship with Nelly, sending graphic pics of himself, sending them pics of their HOUSE, and saying that he can’t wait to be with Ashanti one day.  Hmmm.  According to the Huffington Post:
Hurd’s text messages interspersed explicit sexual scenarios – sometimes accompanied by photos of male genitals – with career advice, accounts of his workouts and dreamy romantic visions, according to the court papers.
“I had a nice dream about us shani,” he wrote in June, according to the papers. “We was at your place and had a event and u was singing. I was feeling so good because we was finally past this and living together.”
A July message said his mental state “is very fragile with all this,” the court papers said.
While most of the messages were apparently directed at Ashanti, a few seemed to address her mother, Tina Douglas, and sister, Kenashia.
Apparently this case is going to trial, but Ashanti’s reps say it’s “been handled”.  Devar is being held on a $50K bond.  WTF is really going on?
More drama under the cut…




Remember Gangsta Boo? The first female rapper of Three Six Mafia and the “Nasty Trick” rapper? Well homegirl just got arrested for stealing from a discount store! We have GOT to do better. Apparently the 30 year old former rapper turned herself in on Tuesday in Olive
Branch, MS. She was released on a $100,000 bond.


Shawne Merriman has turned the tables on Tila Tequila.  he’s  now suing HER for unfair competition and trademark infringement–instead of defamation.  he insists her claims that he choked and attaked her are false, but since she ruined his chances at a Wal-mart t-shirt line (yes, really), he’s suing for more damages.  WOMP.

It took......

27 years.....10 jobs as an assistant coach......and  7 Universities....

From our friends at  "The Young, Black & Fabulous" (YBF.com)....we bring you this nonsense:

    SPORTS DRAMA: Ocho Cinco Owes Money+Terrell Suggs Gets Domestic Violence Charge


    Cincinnati Bengal Chad “Ocho CInco” Johnson owes some pocket change to the Chrysler Financing company after buying a jeep from them last year. But the fact he hasn’t paid his car note in several months seems odd. So the company is suing him for the $34k he owes on his loan:

    He paid $55,5487.35 for the vehicle but put $20,000 down on it, getting a loan for $37,975 for the car he bought from Northgate Chrysler Jeep.

    The suit accuses him of being in default on the loan, having paid $3,200 on the car in 13 months.
    It claims he owes $34,709.72 on that loan plus 15 percent interest annually from Sept. 10, 2009, likely the last payment the company received on the car. His monthly payments are $847.11.

But......on with......what we learned:


Yes........it is a day late.....

But....Tuesday is good.   For it gives us an extra day to reflect......upon the week-end that was.

And.....what a week-end!    SEC football,  the NFL, the NBA,  Tiger Woods.......

Did we say,  "Tiger Woods"?   Sorry......this post....from here on out....will be ......."Tiger  free". 


Today......we're smarter......because we learned:

The Atlanta Falcons....laid an egg.....lost at home....and got embarrassed by Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles,  34-7......in a game that was not even that close.    Now the Birds can look forward to hosting the 12-0 New Orleans Saints......Can you say,  56-3.....Saints?   It will be ugly.


It really felt .........real good.....to see Tim Tebow and the Florida Gators.....humbled by Alabama.   Final score was 32-13........and that was not even close to the real beat down the "Tide" gave Florida.

Defending Super Bowl Champion....Pittsburgh ........has lost 4 in a row.   What's up?

New England .......lost again .....in Miami.    What gives?

Are the.....12-0 Colts.......on a collision course.......with the 12-0 Saints?

Georgia Tech and Clemson......played a very entertaining game in the ACC Championship.   And ESPN did a great job of not showing the thousands of upper deck empty seats.

How many ........shopping days?

What’s the difference between a car and a golf ball? Tiger can drive a ball 400 yards.


Elin found out he’s not a Tiger, he’s a Cheetah.


Tiger just hates it when he drives, and then his balls hit a tree. 


Elin Nordegren got hired today as a consultant. She’s teaching Phil Mickelson how to beat Tiger. 


Tiger’s confused. Every other time he made a hole-in-one, everyone was all happy about it.


Tiger said the fault of the accident was his Escalade. It’s typical of a golfer—always blame the caddy. 



Tiger’s car still runs, but it goes “putt, putt, putt…”


What do baby seals and Tiger Woods have in common? Both were clubbed by a Scandanavian.


Tiger Woods is so rich that he owns lots of expensive cars. Now he has a hole in one


Tiger Woods is tree under.



What was Elin Nordegren doing at 2:30 in the morning? She was clubbing.


Tiger Woods has been dropped by Gilette after admitting this incident was his closest shave ever.

And .....if it's a "Hump Day"........We have our collective ears to the ground. And........from Spirit Airlines......to ........TMZ.......


Here's .......what......we're hearing:



Our friends.....at TMZ.....are on a serious roll:

Tiger Woods Crash Report -- The Collision Course

Tiger Woods was driving crazy before hitting the fire hydrant.

Tiger Woods Crash Report -- the collision course

A diagram in the official police report shows Tiger was driving so erratically, he drove over bushes and into some hedges before hitting the hydrant and ultimately the tree.

According to the police report, it'll cost $3,000 to repair the hydrant and $200 for the tree and sod.

The report also states that it took 30 minutes for officers to arrive to the scene from the time of the crash.

The report shows that Tiger caused $8,000 worth of damage to his Cadillac Escalade -- check out the photos taken by the cops.

Things.....From a Seven Day Week-end


We left .......

This small, southern, college town last Tuesday.......and returned on Saturday.....and went back to work yesterday. An entire week.......of .....a great week-end. Thanksgiving Day brought 17 family members to one table.....

Smoked turkey, roasted turkey, green bean casserole, candied yams, ham, corn-on-the-cob, macaroni & cheese, mashed potatoes, potato salad, broccoli salad, collard greens, corn bread dressing.........and so many desserts.......I can't name them all.

So........on with........things we learned:


Never.......ever.......pack a small tube of Neosporin and a small tube of toothpaste....in the same face kit.......and groggily try to brush your teeth....... on the morning after over indulging in alcoholic beverages. Even when you're hung over......that Neosporin.....just doesn't taste good.

Our family........besides the Thanksgiving Dinner......went through 10 pounds of chicken wings......2 dozen eggs........a couple of cases of beer and about 50 pounds of ice.


Thank you......Atlanta Hawks........for embarrassing us ........on national TV......

Thank you........University of Georgia.......for making us ....."proud to be a bulldog".....by beating Tech.

Speaking of Georgia Tech........in the last three decades.......Georgia........averages losing to Tech.....once in every seven years. I can live with that.

Happy Trails.......Charlie Weis ........the Notre Dame coach was fired yesterday.......but Charlie has the last laugh. The idiots at that Irish school gave him a 10 year extension in his first year.........meaning they still have to pay him the $18 million he was due to earn over the next 6 years.

Welcome back........Allen Iverson........the ink is not even dry on your retirement letter......and your former team......Philly........has offered you a contract. Take it A. I.


Tiger Woods.........should keep his golf clubs.......in a locked vault. Not a good idea to leave them open........to a jealous wife. Allegedly...

The New Orleans Saints......are.....(to borrow the phrase from the St. Louis Rams .....of the early 2000's)........"The Greatest Show on Turf"....

This was suppose .........to be the Atlanta Falcons' year. First back to back winning seasons.....ever. It does not look good.....The best Atlanta can hope for is 8-8........Thus keeping that curse alive.....of never having two winning seasons in a row........in their history.

Okay.........I'm smarter........are you?

Love & Marriage........PGA Style

Say it ain't so........Tiger......

We were a bit skeptical when this story first broke yesterday.

Now TMZ.com sheds some new light......makes sense to us:

Tiger Woods: Injuries Caused by Wife, Not SUV

Tiger Woods did not suffer facial lacerations from a car accident. They were inflicted by his wife, Elin Nordegren -- according to a conversation Woods had Friday after the accident.

Tiger Woods

Tiger has yet to be formally interviewed by the Florida Highway Patrol -- that should happen this afternoon. But we're told Tiger had a conversation Friday -- with a non-law enforcement type -- detailing what went down before his Escalade hit a fire hydrant.

We're told he said his wife had confronted him about reports that he was seeing another woman. The argument got heated and, according to our source, she scratched his face up. We're told it was then Woods beat a hasty retreat for his SUV -- but according to our source, Woods says his wife followed behind with a golf club. As Tiger drove away, she struck the vehicle several times with the club.

Tiger WoodsWe're told Woods became "distracted," thought the vehicle was stopped, and looked to see what had happened. At that point the SUV hit the fire hydrant and then hit a tree.

We're also told Woods had said during the conversation Friday he had been taking prescription pain medication for an injury, which could explain why he seemed somewhat out of it at the scene.
