Watch These skills, Not Football but Dancing Skills! LOL

In honor of football season, I had to post this because it had me rollin!

During this pee wee football game, some genius decided to play music that inspired the kids to dance instead of run plays.

The offense and defense were both distracted so it wasn’t an unfair advantage for the home team whatsoever!

Please watch this video and let us know how much joy it brought to you today!

LOL

Say What Now?

Boy, where have I been? 

Khloe Kardashian is reportedly dating James Harden???????

Make no mistake, Khloe is my favorite Kardashian.  She’s the baddest out of the clan if you ask me. 

But James Harden though?  I mean how do these things happen?  It’s not like they were at the same gas station or something.  LMAO

I just imagine James was on twitter and ran across her pic, called his publicist and said, get me Khloe.  Is that how it goes?  Idk

Whatever the situation, I wish my boo Khloe the best.  I wanna see her with whatever she wants and desires.

Congratulations 2015 NBA Champions Golden State Warriors!!!

Congratulations 2015 NBA Champions Golden State Warriors!!!

 

 

 

Warriors Ground

Wow! What a series! Now, I am a die hard San Antonio Spurs fan, but I am super proud of one of my favorite players of all time and now coach, Steve Kerr! Way to go Steve! Especially with this being your first year! You have always been a great example! Keep it up! This was not an easy journey for Curry, Thompson, Green, Iguodala, and the rest of the crew but they did it! Lebron, you did an amazing job with your team, but it was simply not your time “best player in the world.”Ā  šŸ™‚ The Warriors got it done on the road in 6! Woohoo!

This is what I imagine it must feel like for the Warriors to win at the Cavs’ house:

Keep shining Golden State!

TENNIS
Serena Williams fights off Lucie Safarova for French Open title

Nick McCarvel, Special for USA TODAY Sports

PARIS ā€“ After mounting comeback after comeback this French Open fortnight, Serena Williams was finally asked to thwart one on Saturday in the women’s final.

She did just that.

The world No. 1 let a 6-3, 4-1 lead slip against No. 13 seed Lucie Safarova, a first-time Grand Slam finalist, the American surging back to win her 20th Grand Slam title, a 6-3, 6-7(2), 6-2 winner.

“I choked, simple as that you know,” she said in an NBC interview, of letting the lead slip away. “I hit a lot of double faults. My first serve just went off. I didn’t get any first serves in. I got really nervous it was a big moment to win 20.
“From that point she saw that I was nervous and she starting playing the tennis that she can play.”

Williams lost eight of nine games midway through the match, falling behind 2-0 in the third set against a game Safarova, the Czech left-hander. She’d win the final six games of the match, however, sealing victory on a Safarova backhand into the net.

With the victory, Williams is just two shy of Steffi Graf’s Open Era record of 22. Williams becomes the first woman to win both the Australian and French Opens back to back since Jennifer Capriati in 2001, and looks to equal Graf’s calendar-year Slam (1988) later this year at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.

Williams won five three-set matches in total this French Open, marking the first time she has had to do so in her career. She trailed by a set in each of the second, third, fourth and quarterfinal rounds, rallying in each of those matches for victory.

It was a bizarre fortnight in Paris for the 33-year-old Williams, who developed flu-like symptoms midway through the tournament.

After appearing out of sorts and moving gingerly in her semifinal win Thursday against Timea Bacsinszky, Williams skipped her post-match press conference that evening, citing illness. Friday she didn’t practice, either, giving pre-final statements via a piece of paper handed around the press center, and deciding not to come onto the grounds of Roland Garros altogether.
The win marks her third in Paris, following victories in 2002 and 2013. This is the tournament that has been the most difficult for Williams in her career, suffering early-round exits in 2012 (first round) and 2014 (second round).

It had been a storybook tournament for “lefty Lucie,” a perennial top-25 player who has found her form in the last year, reaching a first career semifinal at a Grand Slam last year at Wimbledon. Here she registered wins over Maria Sharapova, the defending champion, and Ana Ivanovic, winner here in 2008.
But she was winless in eight previous tries against Williams, their only two meetings on (green) clay prior to Saturday seeing her win just six games in four sets.

Saturday it was a story of streaks, however. Williams won 10 of the first 14 games to lead by 4-1 in the second set, only to watch Safarova fight her way back into the match as Williams’ level dropped. Williams served to stay in the set at 4-5, but then couldn’t serve the match out two games later, leading 6-5 and being two points from the title at 30-all.

In the second-set tiebreak, Safarova jumped to a 4-1 lead and didn’t look back, Williams committing error after error. A Williams forehand into the net gave the set to Safarova.

Williams, however, was 19-4 in Grand Slam finals coming into Saturday and didn’t back down. Trailing 2-0 in the third set, she berated herself audibly on the court, receiving an audible obscenity warning from chair umpire Emmanuel Joseph when she held for 3-2.

Williams won the final six games of the match overall, breaking Safarova on her second championship point when the Czech player put a backhand into the net. Williams dropped her racket in disbelief, launching her arms into the air in celebration before hugging Safarova at the net.

Leah Still has a setback after being cancer-free since March

Keep this little princess in your prayers as she continues to fight for her very life. KT

***************************************

Daughter of Bengals’ Devon Still has complication in cancer recovery
Coley Harvey, ESPN Staff Writer

Leah Still has had a setback on the road to recovery from Stage 4 pediatric cancer, her father, Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still, said Friday.

Leah was recently diagnosed with a serious disease that is the result of a complication from stem cell transplants, her father said. As he has often done during Leah’s cancer fight, Devon Still took to Instagram to share the update.

According to the American Cancer Society, VOD, or Hepatic veno-occlusive disease, occurs when tiny veins and other blood vessels inside the liver become blocked. It happens only in people with allogeneic transplants, and primarily in those who received two types of drugs, busulfan or melphalan, as part of their post-cancer recovery.

VOD can be more common in older people who had liver problems before the transplant, according to the ACS. It can result in liver failure and death. The disease’s reported incidence in children who have undergone stem cell transplantation is between five and more than 60 percent, according to Medscape.

Leah Still turned 5 earlier this month and is less than a week shy of the anniversary of her initial diagnosis of neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer that originally left her with a 50/50 survival percentage. In late March, Still announced via Instagram that she was officially in remission, although she had to go through stem cell treatments to help get her immune system back to normal.

Leah’s story dominated the sports landscape in the fall when the Bengals were joined by other NFL teams in raising funds and awareness for pediatric cancers. Last November, the Bengals donated more than $1.2 million to pediatric cancer research initiatives based on a sale of Still’s black No. 75 jersey. Last month, Leah, who has been receiving all her treatments at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, gave the opening coin toss during Temple’s spring game. Players even let her catch a pass and run for a touchdown during the game.

While sticking close to his daughter’s side during her recovery, Still hasn’t attended the Bengals’ offseason workouts. The team began organized team activities Tuesday, but, as expected, he didn’t attend.

What’s AA-RON Doing Now?

Boy, oh, boy, Aaron Hernandez will not stop coming up in the news.

Aaron Hernandez is the former New England Patriots player who was found guilty in his recent murder trial.

Well, he was sentenced to life from what I understand, so I’m thinking that’s it for his glory and fame. Normally, the case gets buried with the new stuff but not for Aaron.

After he was sentenced to life in prison, he was just recently back in the news for being the lookout for a prison fight between rival gang members.

Then, I’m seeing him in an article again today because he was brought up on witness intimidation charges but they showed him with something new.

 

aaron hernandez

This boy is just living it up in prison, getting new tattoos and everything!!!!!!

When is he going to sit down somewhere????
