Here's another look at some things that went down in 2010 that I thought were worth mentioning:
7/8 - LeBron James makes 'The Decision' - LeBron James ended years of speculation by announcing he would be leaving Cleveland and taking his "talents to South Beach" to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the Miami Heat. The Cleveland fans lost their minds since Bron-Bron represented 90% of their economy. LeBron was later demonized by ESPN talking heads for having a prime time show to announce his decision. ESPN, ironically, was the same station that hosted his prime time show announcing his decision. 'The Decision' TV special raised $2.5 million for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, but that fact is lost by LeBron haters. Hey, Cleveland Fans, when you leave your job at Wal-Mart and go to Target for a better opportunity at a promotion and/or more money, I'm going to burn your Wal-Mart uniform in the parking lot and see how you feel. Last I checked, our county allows people to change jobs.
Worth mentioning: 7/6 Lindsay Lohan sentenced to 90 days in jail - Lindsay the Human Drunk Tank gets jail time for violating her probation in two 2007 drunk driving cases. She was released 14 days into her sentence. Way to send a message, Judge. I'm sure she will never do it again after serving her sentence just long enough to learn her way to the prison cafeteria without getting lost. Lohan was ordered back to her spa, er, uh, I mean, rehab on October 22.
8/9 Flight attendant quits, leaves plane - JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater quit his job in style. Customers say after landing in New York, Slater got on the P.A. system, claimed he had just been called a slur by a passenger, grabbed two beers, and deployed the emergency shoot. He was arrested at his home hours later. He took a plea deal to avoid jail time, but he got a huge salute from the millions of frustrated people across America who refuse to be insulted while on the job.
8/13 Ground Zero mosque debate - Polls showed a majority of New Yorkers opposed the placement of a mosque within blocks of the former site of the World Trade Towers. I, personally, don't see the big deal. I don't hold all Muslims responsible for 9/11 any more than I hold all Christians responsible for blowing up abortion clinics.
9/11 Female reporter claims harassment by Jets - TV Azteca reporter Ines Sainz claimed she was harassed by players from the New York Jets during a practice. Sainz was at the Jets facility to interview players and said she had footballs purposely thrown in her direction. Didn't she see that Corona commercial? I mean, it's not like Ines (see photo above) dresses professionally while covering testosterone-injected sporting events, right? She also said that she was later insulted by players in the locker room. The NFL investigated the situation, but no players were punished. Why? Because who takes someone who asks players if she can be carried on their shoulders or measure their biceps seriously, that's why. Ines wears pants so tight that you can tell if the quarter in her back pocket is heads or tails.
Worth mentioning: 9/22 Sex allegations filed against Atlanta Bishop - Three men filed a lawsuit against popular Atlanta Bishop Eddie Long, claiming he used his "authority" to influence them into having sex with him. Two days later a North Carolina man filed a similar suit. Like I said before, where there's smoke, there's fire. Of course, the Bishop Porn Name denied the accusations. Look, I respect church leaders and I know people love theirs as well, but let me offer some advice: follow the message and not the man and you'll be alright. Hey, I just call it like I see it.
If you don't believe me, then ask my man, Sid if Church Folk Can Be Dangerous People.
