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!
I appreciate my Alma Mater, Winston Salem State University's Red Sea of Sound, for allowing me to experience the Battle of the Bands. I was the Announcer for their Breakdown portion of the show. Here'e the show in it's entirety. Under the direction of Dr. McGruder and Dr. Armstrong:
As big of a Ram I am, I'm also honest.
The performance of the day had to go to our sibling HBCU East of Us on 40: North Carolina A&T State University's Blue and Gold Marching Machine. They were loud, clear, and entertaining. Nothing but respect for them and the Golden Delight. Here is their show performance:
The best move of Chris Paul's life was moving to LA.
And marrying Jada.
He's clearly the biggest star in Los Angeles these days, which means: HELLER ENDORSEMENTS.
His commercials have been witty, funny, and are clear signs of a future after he's done dribbling on the hardwood.
Here are his 2 lates commercials.
The Cliff Paul commercial, is a State Farm commercial. CP had a twin brother and they were separated at birth, but both were blessed with the ability to assist. CP on the court, Cliff assists people which lead him to be an excellent worker for state Farm Insurance. The commercial ends with Cliff and Chris bumping into each other at the elevator.
Directed by Spike Lee, this NBA commercial opens with Magic Johnson and Steve Nash sitting at the table in a bar watching the Clippers vs. Memphis game.
CP is drbbling, then he just vanishes from the court in a cloud of smoke, reappears, then vanishes again.
On the second disappearance, they we see that he has vanished from the game to the bar and is sitting in the booth with Steve Nash and Magic Johnson, even stealing one of their fries. And Magic says “shouldn’t you be going to the basket?” CP vanishes back into the game and scores on Mike Conley.
And based on the way the Lakers lost to the Rockets last night, even with Steve Nash passing the 10,000 assist plateau, it may’ve been some foreshadowing from Spike Lee:
The Lakers probably WILL be in a bar watching CP still playing, come June.
