Teh Squeaky Wheel
Top o’ teh mornin’, Wheelizens!
Off for a shower and a quick Waddlemart run; BBL.
That’s one ugly cup.
A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
Got a text from a friend yesterday afternoon, asking if I wanted to join him at an LA KISS game in the luxury box his employer has. Sure! Why not? I’ve never been to an arena football game before and it was a blast. The quality of the football is pretty spotty and it has a bit of a roller derby feel to it, but we had fun. We spotted Gene Simmons hanging out with some of the production crew.
Good for you, Paddy. I like arena football, although the whole KISS thing is a bit much.
I love this spin: “NBA Star Bryce Dejean-Jones Shot Dead in Dallas After Reportedly Entering the Wrong Apartment”
No, he didn’t “enter” the wrong apartment: he kicked the door in at 3:00 in the morning and then kicked in the bedroom door. And he thought he was kicking in the doors to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment--had he found the right apartment, I wonder how that would have ended?
“Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated reports that Dejean-Jones mistakenly entered the wrong apartment while trying to visit the mother of his child.”
Because, yes, that’s how you do it: kick in the door at 3:00 in the morning for a “visit.”
From ESPN: “Bryce Dejean-Jones inadvertently entered door of the wrong apartment when shot to death while trying to go to his child’s mom’s home.”
Ayup. Just an innocent mistake by fine young man: we have to get rid of all guns and the NRA.
From his team: “It is with deep sadness that the Pelicans organization acknowledges the sudden passing of Bryce Dejean-Jones. We are devastated at the loss of this young man’s life who had such a promising future ahead of him. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bryce’s family during this difficult time.”
Maybe they should be asking for thoughts and prayers for the man who was forced to defend himself?
the sudden passing…
Mistakes were made.
I’m sorry if you were offended by my kicking down your door.
Locks on doors are racist.
I guess if he had killed the homeowner they would say he was defending himself from the racist attacker who was hold up in what he thought was his child’s mother’s apartment?
That really is Clinton worthy spin.
Was he carrying Skittles and iced tea? Will they post a picture from his Jr High yearbook?
Hai, Sven, Paddy and Mac!
Just skimmed several articles about teh ex-Pelican.
All four articles had outrageous spin; un-farking-believable.
I mean…who amongst us hasn’t accidentally kicked in the door of the wrong apartment in the middle of the night on their way to celebrate the first birthday of their child?
Such a shame…he was a good boy who was planning to start college in the fall; he was finally getting his life together and didn’t deserve being executed over some youthful, natal day hijinks.
