Welcome to the blog of B Daht Obama! I've taken a new approach to MY blogs - I write letters to people. Hopefully one day some of the people can actually read the letters I write. If you have an idea of a letter you'd like me to write to someone (they don't HAVE to be in Sports) send it to theescore@yahoo. Hope you enjoy, and comments are STRONGLY encouraged!
There was a questioned ask: Who is the best HBCU Host in the South. My name has made it to the Top 5 Finalist. Being in college is NOT mandatory, only thing that IS mandatory is you go to www.HBCUBuzz.com and vote B Daht for Best Host! Thanks, and God's gonna bless you for it.
Here is an email conversation between Shaq and Newsweek reporter Allison Samuels, and he let it be known that D. Wade was cheating on his girlfriend Gabrielle Union with another actress, Lauren London.
It appears that Samuels was trying to hook OâNeal up with some ladies all along. Check out the email exchange between the two, originally posted by Miami New Times, and let me knkow what YOU think, is Shaq DRY SNITCHING??
Samuels: Hi. Sesslielopez@gmail.com. [FYI, the email address bounces back]. Or I can give her your info? Sheâs not in the country until Wed so maybe then is better because she hasnât answered me about something else I asked her about. Also she asked about your personal life and I told her_whatever it is_-Iâm sure you had it under control. Still waiting on Robinneâs response.
Shaq: Sesslie aintdat fine whts robins last name
Samuels: You are so wrong! Robinne Lee_sheâs on Tyler Perryâs show sometimes. Do you know Lauren London_I donât_but I know James Lassiter knows how to reach her. You ever dealt with her_is she cool? Sharon Leal??
Shaq: Loren is d wadeâs girl im not wrong sesslie aint my type u r
Samuels: What about Gabrielle and Dwyane?
Shaq: He gottem all I want u or rihanna
Samuels: Rihanna is too young_19â she is just legal and you know Iâm very chatty and you said you didnât like that!!!!!
Shaq: Yeah but I told u had a crush on me and u wouldnt chat about us i kn o
Samuels: No_Iâm chatty in a relationship_not to others. You just decided I had a crush on you huh?? When did you decide that?
That's all we've got, but would you consider Shaq a snitch for his exchange?

Sooooo, during the pregame introductions 03-29-2011 when LeBron James made his last visit to the Quicken Loans Arena to face his old team The Cleveland Cavaliers, the Cav's fans were in their seats READY to give him the boo's of a lifetime, but there was one problem, LEBRON WASN'T THERE.
Where was he?
LeBron James says he was in the bathroom in the locker room during the introductions.
LeBron, stop it.
Once again you ducked from the limelight. You didn't want to get your self boo'd back to Miami, so you thought you were pulling a fast one. Pretty weak LeBron Spice.
Thing is, Cleveland eventually got the last laugh, by winning, 102-90 even with Prince James scoring a triple double.
Here is the footage of the introduction:
It's that time again: MADDEN TIME

Once a month B Daht and 4 of his comedic brethren get together for the Freestyle Funny Comedy Show.
February's show was a reflection on some of the achievements of African Americans. This is the Time Life commercial for African Americans Greatest Hits.
This video was enough to get me to vote for Mr. Gay, pause. I like how creative it is, and it clearly shows that Rudy is not only a phenomenal athlete who's shooting 80% from the line and averaging 21 points and 6 rebounds a game, but he also has personality; something that will transcend pass the hardwood once a younger lion comes to take his spot in another 6 years or so. Check out the video and let me know: Does Rudy Gay get YOUR vote for the All-Star Game?
Diddy has dropped his album "Last Train to Paris" and of course, he had an album release party. well apparently the party got too crowded and Fabolous, Trey Songz and Kevin Hart decided to go to the hot tub. At the LEAST, it get's REAL hot in that jahnt! Check it out.
Coach Marlon Dorsey, 1st year Head Basketball Coach at Mississippi High School, has been suspended with pay for alleged whippings. There are three players that have filed a lawsuit.
If your kid came home and said his coach had spanked him, how would you handle the situation??

A lot has been going down with Tiger Woods in the media, and we haven't really had a chance to hear from the Man himself. Well I have found an exclusive leaked interview from Tiger's perspective; check it out and leave comments!
There has been a 3rd women to allegedly have an affair with Tiger Wodds: Kalika Moquin. Kalika is a Marketing Manager for a Las Vegas nightclub called The Bank. She says she's known Tiger for a few years, but's only let him tap on her jahnt a couple times; most recently the weekend of October 23rd, at his hotel in Vegas.
He "allegedly" told her married life isn't all it's cracked up to be and he wasn't happy in his marriage or his home life, and that there was just too much pressure on him.
What ya'll think?
So alot of speculation came out when Tiger wrecked his Escalade in his neighbors yard a couple days ago. Was Tiger having an affair? Why wouldn't Tiger talk to the police? Was Tigers face scratched from an angry wife or results of an auto accident?
Well after the release of a voicemail left by Tiger on the phone of Miss Jamie Grubbs, there's not MUCH left to speculate! You be the judge; was Tiger stepping out?
The Damien Beatty Foundation was set up to assist: Damien Beatty, a 17 year old ex Page Football player.
On September 22, 2009 he and a friend was struck by a vehicle on highway 29; the vehicle kept going. The accident left Damien paralyzed from the waste down and he is still in Moses Cone hospital; the friend riding with him had minor injuries.
The Foundation has been established to raise monies to get Damien to Sheppard Center in Atlanta, GA. Sheppard Center is one of the best spinal rehabilitation centers in the country. Treatment would be for 3 weeks and costs $50,000; at the conclusion of which, the family is optomistic Damien will be able to walk again.
There will be fundraisers to assist with monies for the Damien Beatty Foundation, the first of which is October 3rd, at 7pm at Page High School.

Let's help one another.
Because The King is coming home this week to have his Annual CP3 Weekend, i thought it was only right to let you see why he's The King. All this week, i'll be loading videos of some of CP's highlights of his career, thus far -
We start with maybe the smallest guy in the league dunking on one of the biggest. These are traits that seperate CP and will mark him as one of, if not THE best PG the league has ever seen!
There is a S. African runner, Caster Semenya, who just won the 800 meters at the World Championships has submitted to a gender test requested by the World Track & Field Federation. The test IS underway, although, results are not expected back for a couple weeks. The requirements: a physical medical examination, and include reports from a gynecologist, endrocrinologist, psychologist, an internal medicine specialist and an expert on gender. Wow.
What does one have to do to get the people to request AND FOLLOW THROUGH with a "Gender Test"? Just pull "its" pants down, if it hangs, it a Mane - period. Guess it's not that simple.
Do they think that the parents of this "person" transformed "it" so "it" would be more dominant in female sports? Can you imagine how embarrassing it is for the WORLD to think you are SO much like a man they perform a GENDER TEST?! My GOD! She just needs to go get pregnant! That'll show em!
If it DOES come out "it" was born a boy and the parents hath changed the sex parts in attempts to make their child dominant; God Be With Us All.
<---- Caster Semenya, you be the judge.
For all of the young'ns out there that think LBJ or Kobe is the best to ever play the game, I want you to see His Airness, Michael Jordan; at the age oif 46, he STILL will ball ANY of you youngn's up! Ask www.twitter.com/GBird5 (he's the victim in the video)....
Mike Vick to the Bills??
I didn’t hear that, but what I DID hear was the most high profile player on the Buffalo Bills roster (and THE most controversial player in the league CONSISTENTLY the past 5 years) Terrell Owens, has spoken out regarding the 4 game suspension on Mike Vick.
“The Michael Vick situation, I think, is unfortunate," Owens said. "I think the way the commissioner is handling it is unfair to Michael Vick. I think he's done the time for what he's done. I don't think it's really fair for him to be suspended four more games. It's almost like kicking a dead horse in the ground. A lot of the guys around the league need to speak up. I think the players' union needs to step in because the guy's already suffered so much, and to add a four-game suspension onto a two-year prison sentence, I mean, that's ridiculous.”
After 23 months, removed from his profession, embarrassed the same way HE embarrassed the NFL, his fans, and his family, to bring him out of suspension to suspend him is preposterous.
How much can you take from someone? I think this is yet another situation where Roger Goodell has gone TOO far and I really hope the Player’s Union stands behind T.O. and Vick on this one.
Mike Vick in Buffalo with Marshawn Lynch in the backfield and the Big Play WR Terrell Owens would have them surpass the Cowboys AND Raiders as most controversial team in history! I'm not saying Vick WILL be a Bill, but it'd surely be a nice way to say thank you to Mr. Owens.
Vernon Forrest SH1Tuation:
Many remember 1992 Olympian, Vernon Forrest, from his 2 great battles against “Sugar” Shane Mosely. I personally remember Forrest being dismantled by Mayorga in 2003. He was beaten like “a man beats a boy”. In victory, Mayorga smoked his traditional celebratory cigarette as he interviewed with Jim Lampley in the center of the ring. Gutter.
Well Saturday, July 25th, Vernon was with his 11 year old godson. As his godson entered the convenience store, Vernon took the time to put some air in his tire, where he was approached by a “begger” asking for money. Vernon pulled his wallet from his pocket, and it was snatched.
The assailant was pursued by Forrest, but after he turned a corner and was out of view, Forrest just counted his losses and turned to return to his vehicle. As he returned to the vehicle, the assailant returned from around the corner and gunned Forrest down. 7 – 8 shots in the torso and legs and one in the head.
In the month of July, we’ve lost 3 great boxers of this generation:
• Alexix Arguello, found dead by apparent suicide on July 1st.
• Arturo Gatti, found dead July 11 at a Brazillian resort. His wife Amanda Rodrigues is named the prime suspect.
First off, RIP Arturo Gotti - More on Thee Score later on today....

Who was it that said Tyler Hansbrough wouldn’t make a good NBA player?
I know it’s early to speculate his greatness just 2 Summer League games into his NBA Career, but Tyler is doing things the critics said he couldn’t. He’s hitting the 3 ball, he’s putting the ball on the floor, and he’s showing competitive athleticism. In 2 games, he has 40 points and is creating strong mismatches in the post and on the perimeter. Of course Tyler is finishing at the free throw line, evident because he is getting fouled constantly. Brandon Rush and Roy Hibbert are also on the Indiana Summer League team. Other notable players in the Summer League: Oklahoma City – James Harden, Russell Westbrook and Shaun Livingstone; NJ/PHI Chris Douglas-Roberts, Jrue Holiday and Orlando’s: Jeremy Pargo (younger brother of Jannero).
There ARE Sports to watch! They should be televised!
Some of the same people playing in the Orlando Summer League were participating in March Madness – which means, there’s a high level of basketball being played, and we should be able to view it! There are 3 games today, 3 games tomorrow and 3 more on Friday –why aren’t they televised!? There are NFL training camps and workouts popping up all over the country – there should be camera crews there taping for the world to see.
