It seems amicable, but you know they are bitter

 

They say all good things come to an end, but this one seems rather premature.  The chemistry between these two have been great, and people in the Bay Area have had a love affair with the pair.

Now that the Giants have won the World Series, breaking up is hard to do….

ESPN replaces Jon Miller-Joe Morgan team for baseball broadcasts

Jon Miller and Joe Morgan spent 21 seasons together in ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball” booth, an extraordinarily long run in the world of national sports television. But there will not be a 22nd.

With both of their contracts having expired, ESPN decided it was time to make the long-anticipated move to replace them and give the booth a fresh sound.

ESPN did not name a replacement, but The New York Times [NYT] reported the leading candidate is Dan Shulman, long one of the network’s most respected play-by-play men.

Orel Hershiser, who joined Miller and Morgan last season, presumably would stay on as an analyst. Bobby Valentine could serve as a third man in the booth, the Times reported.

Miller might stay with the company as the radio voice of ESPN’s Sunday games, but Morgan will not. For years the Hall of Fame second baseman’s work has been a target of many critics in the media and among fans.

Miller’s primary job is as play-by-play voice of the World Series champion Giants, whose crowning moment he called on radio for ESPN alongside Morgan. Miller received the Hall of Fame’s Ford C. Frick Award this past summer.

“Jon and Joe have contributed greatly to the success of ’Sunday Night Baseball’ for the past 21 seasons,” ESPN executive vice president Norby Williams said in a statement.

“Over the last two decades, Joe went from Hall of Fame player to one of his sport’s top analysts and Jon’s Hall of Fame voice and tremendous knowledge of the game have connected with baseball fans everywhere. We owe them our deepest thanks for an outstanding body of work.”

If you read what she wrote, some of these dudes are lying to her to get the box...

My senior thesis was on the likelyhood of another terrorist bombing on US soil.

I wrote it in 1995…funny enough, I got a B+ on the paper, but of course, I didn’t care since it was enough to get out of Dodge (or Ogden, as the case happened to be…) and get my papers…

When I read this story, I found it funny, and thought it was about time that the thoughts of women were exposed.  When I was in SF going to school at San Francisco State, I had the pleasure to call some sexually liberated women my friends.  While I never got to home plate with any of them, there is too many funny experiences that I shared with them.

The first one that comes to mine is a time that one of these ladies has talking about how good her sex game was.  Another guy from a different school ( Berkeley) talked some smack about how good he was.  Alcohol, and ego was a good mix for him.  They go off and explore each other, and my friend comes back.  The question was posed to her, ” Hey, how was it?” to which she replied, ” Well, I was good…”

I nearly wet myself when I hear that.

The freedom that the Duke F@$% thesis, as it is called, was hilarious and liberating.  It’s good to see that we all think alike.

Here was her critieria

 

But, now the cat is out the bag (literally and figuratively, since Karen got around) she wants to be embarrassed about it.  This is the letter she sent to Deadspin…

As the ashamed author of this slide show, I am horrified at your choice to include all the names that you did. While I cannot stop you from publishing it, this item was never meant to be seen outside of a very small circle of people. Obviously, it has gone viral. However, your inclusion of the real names are causing this awful situation to escalate even further and is actually starting to affect peoples’ lives in ways that go far beyond mere embarrassment. Remove the names immediately, or I will be adding your blog post to the list of things I discuss with my attorney when we meet. If you would like to talk further, please include your number in your response and I will contact you as soon as I can. Again, including real names is simply cruel of you and you will black them out immediately.

MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss was arrested Tuesday after being accused of bumping a police traffic officer with his car.

The officer tried to stop Moss from making an illegal turn, and Moss used his car to slowly push the officer along the street, police spokeswoman Cyndi Barrington said.

Barrington said an assault charge was being considered.

The officer was not seriously hurt, WCCO-TV reported

Where is Ludacris when you need him?

Maybe we should extend an Amber warning to all the skeezers and skanks and scallywags (all better known as hoes, and like method man and redman, I mean it in a good way)

Damn it feels good to see people up on it...but not in a stalkerish peeping tom way...BTW, that is Miss KY 2008...wondering if she will need her States abbreviation after messing around with Randy...?

The New England Patriots completed a trade that sent Pro Bowl WR Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday morning, ESPN, the NFL Network and Boston Herald reported.

The Vikings sent a third-round pick to the Patriots in return for Moss, who becomes a key weapon for Minnesota QB Brett Favre.

The teams had not yet confirmed the trade. But Vikings S Madieu Williams said on Twitter that the deal was “official.”

Moss returns to the team where he spent the first seven years of his career. Moss caught 574 passes for 9,142 yards and 90 TDs from 1998-2004 in Minnesota.

It leaves the Patriots and QB Tom Brady without the stretch-the-field wideout who set an NFL single-season record of 23 receiving TDs in 2007.

I'm mixing up the game! DB's take your vitamins, I'M BAAACCCKKK!

From the Patriots position, they were on the come-up.  First, they got more for the guy then what they paid for.  When he was dealt from the blogs favorite team, the RAIDERS, they only got a 4th round pick, because they were happy to get rid of his contract and his dour attitude. (We still miss what could have been here in Oakland Randy)  It is rare in the NFL that assets acquire more value later in their careers.  Second, they did not have to give him an expensive contract extension.

Moss did not get a contract extension from the Vikings as part of the deal, NFL Network reported.

ESPN reported that Patriots coach Bill Belichick spoke by phone to inform Moss of the trade on Wednesday morning. The network described their conversation as cordial.

For Favre, the trade gives him a serious receiving threat that he has long lobbied to acquire and that he has lacked this season with Sidney Rice injured. Favre, with the Packers in 2007, pushed the team to acquire Moss but lost out to the Patriots.

This is exactly what Father Time, I mean Favre needs to get the offense on a roll.  Soon, they will get Sidney Rice back and that offense will be firing on all cylinders.  You will have AP (not our boy tophatal, but Adrian Peterson) Headache (not the AND1 baller, but Percy Harvin) Moss, and Rice.  Plus, you have Shank Em at TE, so weapons are everywhere.

The receiver will return to New England on Oct. 31, when the Vikings visit Foxborough to the play Patriots (a game that occurs only once every eight years). Fox was already scheduled to broadcast that game nationally at 4:15 p.m. ET.

Moss’ final game in a New England uniform on Monday turned out to be his only in more than three years in which he did not catch a pass. The Herald reported that Moss had asked the Patriots to trade him after Week 1, when he had an outburst about his contract following a win against Cincinnati. Moss later apologized and said he and coach Belichick had cleared the air.

Moss, whose deal expires after the season, said after Week 1 that he wanted to stay with Patriots but added he thought this would be his final year in New England.

Moss is set to appear on Monday Night Football for the second straight week when the Vikings travel to play the New York Jets next week. He’ll likely be matched up again with Jets CBDarrelle Revis, who hasn’t played since tweaking his hamstring on a TD pass he allowed to Moss in Week 2.

Moss will be just second player to appear on MNF back to back. Keith Browner played for the San Francisco 49ers against the New York Giants on Oct. 5, 1987, then played for the Los Angeles Raiders against the Denver Broncos on Oct. 12 (viaESPN and Elias Sports Bureau).

Since the Vikings have already had their bye and the Patriots’ is Sunday, Moss could become the sixth player to play in 17 games if he plays in the rest of the Vikings’ contests.

This is another bonus to fantasy players who got jobbed this week by his unusual lack of effectiveness.  It is the functional equivalent of the “do-over” in backyard sports.  I guarantee that Favre will target him early and often…he is sure to be a “hit”!

Remember the plays Randy? Puff, Puff, PASS!

Hey, Do you still remember the plays Randy? Puff, Puff, PASS! That is your mistake Randy...its legal here in Cali!

SSShhhhhh! I'm busy knocking off my side piece or jumpoff!!!

I guess the life of a professional athlete leaves you with a lot of time on your hands.  You definitely train and go to practice, but once that is done, you are left to your own devices.  If you have you head on straight, you make sure your body can recover from the brutal pounding you take in practice and in games.

Some players take ice baths to help stimulate recovery faster.  Your body is a temple that you want to be able to operate at peak performance.  Jumping out of windows like you are Superman is not going to help.

aguars WR Kassim Osgood had to jump for his life on Monday night when he leapt out of a second-floor window to escape a armed intruder who attacked him and a 19-year-old Jaguars cheerleader, according to police.

this is just like the window I used to jump from...

Okay…I don’t want to minimize what happened, but a second story window is about ten feet off the ground.  He didn’t jump from a ten story window, just ten feet.  Growing up, I used to have to do that all the time, as I had to sneak into my girlfriends room occasionally without being seen.

The Boston Herald gives some details about the alleged attacker

Julian Armond Bartletto, 20, of the 10500 block of Running Oak Court has been arrested on charges of aggravated battery, false imprisonment, armed robbery, burglary and violation of an injunction, police said. He was booked into the Duval County jail ineligible for bail, according to jail records.

Second issue is that Kassim, you are thirty.  Now, I am not an age NAZI, since love doesn’t measure age in the equation.  But, what are you doing with a girl fresh out of high school?  You are a professional athlete, with thirsty hoes,  groupies are available everywhere.

She is pretty dec Kassim....

Osgood was watching television late Monday night with Mackenzie Rae Putnal when the armed intruder, Putnal’s ex-boyfriend, entered wielding a gun. The intruder pistol-whipped Osgood in the head after pulling Putnal by her hair and hitting her with the gun and his fists.

Putnal escaped to her parents’ home downstairs and grabbed a gun. Putnal exchanged fire with the intruder but shots from both guns missed.

Okay, I will be the first to admit that I want a woman who is down for gangster ish like this.  Having the wherewithal to absorb some beating, then escape to get the piece and fire off some caps trying to hit dude is cause for me to give you dap, Mackenzie.  Even more amazing is in the details.  The Herald continues

By the time it was over, police said the armed intruder had traded gunfire with the woman after sticking a gun to her head, saying, “What did that football player say to his girlfriend, ’It’s a good day to die,’ ” misquoting ex-Florida Gator Chris Rainey’s recent text message to a former girlfriend after an arrest.

The fact that she was mentally tough to take some beating, and the psychological torture that her ex attempted to inflict… Pro Football Weekly picks up the story…

Osgood jammed a chair under the door and jumped out a window to the lawn below. He ran to a neighbor’s house to call police. Osgood sustained minor bruises during the attack and while fleeing.

In the words of Riley Freeman, that is a real b*&$# move…you left your girl.

Kassim, I guess we have to add your name to the list now...

How are you just going to leave her like that?  Plus, you don’t have a cell phone that you could have used to call the police from the house and made sure your jump-off was okay?  I mean, you are leaving her to fire back and defend herself!  But, on the other hand, you are proving that women are equal to men.  No patriarchal rhetoric here!  It’s okay for you to bring home the bacon and fire the guns in the house.  N.O.W. would be proud… The Herald gives a little more light to the story than PFW, since they are more concerned with the fantasy aspect of the story. (I am bet that Osgood is benched or probably chilling on the FA wire in your league)

Mackenzie Rae Putnal and Osgood, 30, were watching television in a second-floor game room just before 11:15 p.m. when a man walked in with his face covered with a plastic bag and pointed a gun at them. Exclaiming that “I can’t believe you’re with that guy,” he pulled Putnal around the room by her hair and hit her with gun and fists before hitting Osgood in the head with the weapon too, the arrest report said.

I wonder what ex was referring to, his age, or the fact that outside of special teams, he is not that good?  Maybe Kassim cost him a victory in fantasy football…the dude was talking ish about Kassim though….

The gunman took the woman’s cell phone and tackled her when she tried to flee, holding the gun to her head as well as Osgood’s and also hitting her dog several times. When ordered to sit on the floor, Putnal escaped down a hall and leaped over the balcony to the floor below, the report said.

The gunman ran after her, so Osgood jammed a chair under the game room door handle and jumped out a window to the lawn below, running to a neighbor’s house to call police. Meanwhile, Bartletto and Putnal confronted each other downstairs with guns. The woman targeted him with her laser sight before both shot at each other and missed.

I gotta again give dap to the parents for having the laser sight, but how do you miss then?  Sometimes a higher force is looking out for fools.  Plus, this is a girl you might want to have in the foxhole.  Notice the story doesn’t mention her bruises or any injury, but we know that Kassim got lumped up?  She jumped out the window too to the ground below.  I wonder do her parents know that a thirty year old man is beating the coochie up of their nineteen year old daughter?

“He’s fine,” Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio said. “I’m aware of it. I really can’t comment on that whole deal. He’s doing OK.”

Osgood is in his first year with the Jaguars after signing as a free agent this past offseason. He has made three Pro Bowls as a special-teams player — all with the Chargers — and has a 24-yard TD catch this season.

Maybe this is why teams don’t allow or frown on relationships between players and cheerleaders.  I started this missive as a warning about jump-offs and side pieces.  That message is still an important one to carry on.  Steve McNair got caught up with a young tenderoni (shout out to Bobby Brown) and he had his life ended due to the drama surrounding her.  While the side piece was not the main culprit ( and in fact, she is the hero in the situation) in of the scenario, hanging out with her was.  Listen to Wu-Tang Kassim…protect your neck!

p.s.  This is not a small dude…

Osgood, 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds, caught the game-winning touchdown in the Jaguars’ home-opening win against the Denver Broncos. He played seven years for the San Diego Chargers before signing this year with the Jaguars.

All he did was WIN baby...

One shirt that I have in my collection is a shirt of Charles Barkley with the quotation, “I am not a role model…” His professional stature should not be the reason to look up to him. You measure a man by what he has done for the good of society, not what he can score.  With George Blanda, I took away his incredible work ethic.  the lottery of birth failed him somewhat, because if he had been born fourty years later, he would be rich, and not just spiritually or emotionally, but paper rich.  ESPN records the loss of one of the greats…

ALAMEDA, Calif. — The Oakland Raiders say Hall of Fame quarterback George Blanda has died. He was 83.

A Raiders’ spokesman confirmed the death Monday.

Blanda spent 26 seasons in the NFL as a quarterback and kicker while playing for three different teams. He spent 10 seasons with Chicago, seven with the Houston Oilers and nine with the Raiders before retiring in 1976 at the age of 48.

Blanda was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Aug. 1, 1981.

Blanda is remembered most for his heroics in the 1970 season when at age 43, he threw three touchdown passes and kicked a field goal in the Raiders’ comeback victory over thePittsburgh Steelers.

In that same season, Blanda also kicked a 52-yard field goal to defeat the Cleveland Browns, threw a winning touchdown pass against the Denver Broncos and booted a last-minute field goal to defeat the San Diego Chargers. The Raiders ended up losing to the Baltimore Colts in the 1970 AFC title game, but Blanda became the oldest player ever in a title game.

Blanda played 340 games over his 26 seasons (1949-75) in pro football. Despite having an offseason job for 22 years of his pro career as the sales manager of a trucking company, he found time for aerobics, handball, racquetball and jogging on a daily basis. He also did countless push-ups and sit-ups.

A private funeral service will be held for the family and a memorial service is being arranged, according to the Raiders.

Think about all the records he held or currently holds.  He epitomized hard work, and the never say die attitude.

Blanda finished his 26 Professional Football seasons having completed 1,911 of 4,007 pass attempts for 26,920 yards and 236 touchdowns. Blanda also held the NFL record for most interceptions thrown with 277, until Brett Favre broke it on October 14, 2007. He rushed for 344 yards and 9 touchdowns on the ground, kicked 335 of 641 field goals, and 943 of 959 extra points, giving him 2,002 total points. Additional stats include 1 interception, 2 kickoff returns for 19 yards, 22 punts for 809 yards, and 23 fumble recoveries.

Blanda holds the following Professional Football records:

  • Passing TD’s in a game: 7 (Tied with 4 others) November 19, 1961 vs. New York Titans[1]
  • Most seasons played: 26 (1949-58, 1960-75)
  • Most seasons scoring a point: 26
  • One of two players to play in 4 different decades: (40s, 50s, 60s, 70s) – Jeff Feagles being the other
  • Most PATs made (943) and attempted (959)
  • Most interceptions thrown, single season: 42 (1962)
  • Held record of most pass attempts in a single game: 68 (37 completions, vs. New York Titans on 11/1/1961) until 1994 when Drew Bledsoe had 70
  • Oldest person to play in an NFL game: 48 years, 109 days
  • First player ever to score over 2,000 points
  • Oldest quarterback to start a title game
  • 3rd Fewest receiving yards in a career: -16
  • Most total points accounted for (including TD passes) in a career: 3,418 (not an official stat)

He is the placekicker on the All-Time All-AFL Team, and was one of only 20 players to play all ten years of the AFL, as well as one of only three who were in every AFL game their teams played. Blanda was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1981, his first year of eligibility, and also was inducted into the University of Kentucky Hall of Fame.

All day yesterday, I thought about what we lost and he still hasn’t fully hit me yet. The music was inspiring, and mood changing. The poetry coming from Tupac could be a total attitude adjustment.

Your music still motivates others...the test of a true legend

A true artist/poet has been gone for 14 years yesterday and his music still inspires others to create good music and tell the stories of the streets that need to be heard by others.  It’s been a long time and that void has not and really will not be filled by others.  That is what makes the loss still so painful.  We need good music, and all we are getting is bubblegum rap for the most part.  We need Biggie, we need Tupac.

They were like brothers...it turned into a modern day Cain and Abel possibly

When I hear Dear Mama, I think of my own mother, who passed away over twenty years ago. That song as the ability to make me both happy and sad at the same time. It never fails to pull on th heartstrings.

Me and My Girlfriend always gets me to think about how Jay-Z stole my mans shit, and how clever he was with the word play to talk about the criminality and the love of firearms.

I get around brings back memories of college parties and going out to the club chasing the box. That was an immediate party song that would get people up and shaking.

While I have down down the spectrum to agnostic about religion, Hail Mary brings back time in the church as a little boy. Ronin and I used to be ushers in church and sing in the choir.  We needed forgiveness for the things that we did as kids.

I don’t know if we will have a poet in the same way as Tupac ever again. It really was disheartening to be watching TV in Hawaii this weekend and seeing the VH1 top 100 performers and to see Tupac in the low 60’s. Rap may not be your particular cup of tea, but to disrespect him and have Rage against the Machine, Cheap Trick and others ahead of him is ludicrous. But, rap music wasn’t even on this list the last time they did it, so it is baby steps…but Beyonce is ahead of him? child please…

We will never know what really happened that night in LV, but, I miss you and mourn would could have been.

One is real, the other from a movie....can you tell which is which?

The only one he really hurt is himself…

An attorney for Plaxico Burress poured cold water on the story that Burress might be just weeks away from stepping out of a New York prison.

Lawyer Peter Frankel told the New York Daily News that while Burress has a work release application pending, it’s no sure thing that prison officials will grant it and still a long shot that they would allow him to return to the NFL this season.

“To say he’ll be out in two to three weeks is certainly premature,” Frankel told the paper.

The New York Post reported on Wednesday that Burress was weeks away from a potential release. Frankel explained to the News that it was a flawed analysis.

“That was somebody going to visit him, and saying he was hopeful he might be moved in two to three weeks,” Frankel said, “and suddenly that turned into ‘He’ll be out in two to three weeks.’ ”

And if prison officials grant work release to Burress, they may prevent him from returning to the NFL until after his sentence expires next year.

A prison spokesman told the News that work-release inmates normally perform their service in the community.

With the football season close by and players starting to report to training camp, the urge to do something that he has done most his life is starting to creep in again.  The feeling of going to raining camp, even though no one really likes it, is ingrained into every players DNA.  Just look at the drama with the Brett Favre situation.  Hopefully he gets out and returns to the field.

Do you mind if I listen to your ipod?

Damn…

as a young man I would have been doing some serious time…but as a grown man, there is not a need to lie to knock the boots…shout out to H-Town

Arab guilty of rape after consensual sex with Jew

A man has been sentenced to 18 months in prison after telling a woman that he was also Jewish

A Palestinian man has been convicted of rape after having consensual sex with a woman who had believed him to be a fellow Jew.

Sabbar Kashur, 30, was sentenced to 18 months in prison on Monday after the court ruled that he was guilty of rape by deception. According to the complaint filed by the woman with the Jerusalem district court, the two met in downtown Jerusalem in September 2008 where Kashur, an Arab from East Jerusalem, introduced himself as a Jewish bachelor seeking a serious relationship. The two then had consensual sex in a nearby building before Kashur left.

When she later found out that he was not Jewish but an Arab, she filed a criminal complaint for rape and indecent assault.

Now this just seems like a woman scorned.  I bet she thought that the sex was good and she was hoping for another call-back.  when she found out that she was a booty call or jump-off, she got mad.  Men, that is why you have to choose your jumpoffs carefully.

You gotta have game to make the L...

Although Kashur was initially charged with rape and indecent assault, this was changed to a charge of rape by deception as part of a plea bargain arrangement.

Handing down the verdict, Tzvi Segal, one of three judges on the case, acknowledged that sex had been consensual but said that although not “a classical rape by force,” the woman would not have consented if she had not believed Kashur was Jewish.

The sex therefore was obtained under false pretences, the judges said. “If she hadn’t thought the accused was a Jewish bachelor interested in a serious romantic relationship, she would not have cooperated,” they added.

The court ruled that Kashur should receive a jail term and rejected the option of a six-month community service order. He was said to be seeking to appeal.

Segal said: “The court is obliged to protect the public interest from sophisticated, smooth-tongued criminals who can deceive innocent victims at an unbearable price – the sanctity of their bodies and souls. When the very basis of trust between human beings drops, especially when the matters at hand are so intimate, sensitive and fateful, the court is required to stand firmly at the side of the victims – actual and potential – to protect their wellbeing. Otherwise, they will be used, manipulated and misled, while paying only a tolerable and symbolic price.”

Obviously this judge has not had a lot of experience.  Lying is one of the first ways you learn to get with a woman, until you grow up and realize that you don’t have to lie.  What if a woman is wearing a padded bra and I get home and see the goodies are not a luscious as I thought in the bar?   Or, what if the woman in question has gotten some booty shots to make the butt bigger in a good way?  That is deception too, and it happens all the time.

Gideon Levy, a liberal Israeli commentator, was quoted as saying: “I would like to raise only one question with the judge. What if this guy had been a Jew who pretended to be a Muslim and had sex with a Muslim woman?

“Would he have been convicted of rape? The answer is: of course not.”

Arabs constitute about 20% of Israel‘s population, but relationships between Jews and Arabs are rare. There are few mixed neighbourhoods or towns, and Arabs suffer routine discrimination.

Israeli MPs are considering a law requiring prospective Israeli citizens to declare loyalty to Israel as a “Jewish, democratic state”. Many Arabs would balk at swearing allegiance to a state which they see as explicitly excluding or marginalising them.

Dan Meridor, a deputy prime minister in Binyamin Netanyahu’s government, is opposed to the proposal. “Why does every bill need the word ‘Jewish’ in it – to show the Arab citizens that it doesn’t belong to them? Then we’re all shocked when they radicalise their stance.

“The majority doesn’t need to remind the minority that it is in fact a minority all the time,” he added.

What lies have you told to get the body rocking, knocking the boots?

Yo Gabby! I saw DWade creeping with someone else! I couldn't believe that he would do that! Let me console you...

How many more reasons to you need to convince you prison is not the place to be? STAY OUT OF PRISON!

The mention of sex parties and prison usually turn my stomach, because I think of the scene in American Me. (click to watch what I mean)

I never want to go to prison.  But, if I had to go, I want to go to this place…

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – The New York State Commission of Correction says top officials and staff were irresponsible when they authorized and failed to supervise a party at a youth prison where some violent offenders had sex with dates.

The commission faults the Office of Children and Family Services for directing the Goshen Secure Center in the Hudson Valley to hold the December party for four offenders as a reward for good behavior. They ranged in age from 17 to 20, three doing time for murder and one for armed robbery.

The commission says officials knew little about the four female guests, ranging from 16 to 27, who were driven from Albany and New York City by state workers in state vehicles.

OCFS says it has stopped social events and disciplined seven of its staff.

Now, I make light of this, but the real message is that prison is not the place to be for anyone.

MJ, I do remember.  You should still be with us…R.I.P.

This is a message and a warning.  Time flies and before you know it, you have missed something, or you have expired with a grip of regret.  Don’t get to that point.  You should however look back at the fond times that you have had…like the blog.

Shout out to Erik and Ronin…remember when you guys blogged?

On MJ, what is happening to the Dr., Conrad Murray ?  Is he going to get away with it?  Now that that the passion of some has died down, I worry about deals being struck.  But, ultimately, MJ is still not with us and prosecuting him will not bring him back, so sit back and ride out to the video…
