As the title suggests, the movie?is about a semi-pro basketball league and is set in the 70’s.? Will Ferrell is a funny dude so it?might just be worth seeing.?

Where oh where is Lil Jon when you need him??? President Bill Clinton was in dire need of some Crunk Juice yesterday as he was caught dozing during an event at Convenat Avenue Baptist Church in Harlem.? Like…for real…give the man a break!? Hillary has him campaigning his ass off and he’s not even running!
…and sometimes speeches are just?borning! I almost fell asleep during the MLK event at Ebenezer Baptist Church on Monday and I was watching it on T.V.!?? I?got crunk?when Bernice King started rapping though….that really made my day!
The 16th annual Trumpet Awards were held in the “A” last weekend (as well as a monster truck rally and an Atlanta Thrashers hockey game)!? Downtown traffic was on lock…but I did navigate through in time to meet my friends at Stats to watch the game!
