A smoke shop in Phoenix decided to take out an ad in a local newspaper to welcome Tyrann Mathieu to town.
The ad is for Bud’s Glass Joint in Phoenix, which bills itself as “what a Phoenix Smoke Shop should really be.” The ad appears in the Phoenix New Times, and it states: “Honey Badger. Welcome to Phoenix! We have what you’re looking for."
How many dorm-dwelling college freshmen do you know who sleep in Versace sheets? Deion Sanders Jr. does.
His dad, Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, mirthfully tweeted a picture of the lad in his bed on Wednesday. “MY son at his dorm at SMU. He’s a fool. Lol,” the father wrote.
When Jay-Z sits courtside at Brooklyn Nets games, he is only a few feet away from Popeye Jones. Now comes word that the two could get closer. Seth Jones, Popeye’s hockey-playing son, is the latest high-profile athlete that Jay-Z would like to sign for Roc Nation Sports.
Seth is certainly a top prize. He is enormously athletic and skilled and is likely the overall #1 pick in the NHL Draft on June 30 at the Prudential Center in Newark. He could also become hockey’s first African-American “crossover star” and with some careful marketing and promotion lead to a new audience for the sport. As one writer noted, the combination could make hockey “cool” again after its season was devastated by a long lockout.
All three of Jones sons took up hockey when he was playing for the Nuggets and the family lived in the Denver suburbs.
“All of the kids played street hockey. When it got cold, all the kids said they were going inside to play ice hockey,” the dad said. “Just being a sports guy, growing up playing basketball, football and baseball, it didn’t matter what sport they played. Sports are meant to be fun. Kids learn camaraderie and teamwork and stuff like that.”
It helped that the Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche shared a weight room, and the elder Jones received advice from Avalanche captain Joe Sakic. Seth quickly became a standout. This season, he led the United States to the World Junior Championship in Russia was officially named the No. 1 North American prospect for the National Hockey League
Jay-Z has already signed Robinson Cano and has been linked to Victor Cruz, Nerlens Noel and now Jones.
The Los Angeles Lakers season has come to a close in disappointing fashion, and it appears that Metta World Peace’s son is reacting accordingly. World Peace posted a photo of a collection of stuff that he claimed his son is selling because he wants to buy a pair of $8,500 sneakers.
“My son is trying to sell all this for a pair of shoes! $8,500″ World Peace wrote along with the photo you see above. “I told him to get a job. This kid is nuts!”
Included are some basics that a kid who is looking to make a buck would try to sell a keyboard, a guitar, some shoes. Oh yeah, and it also appears his Dwight Howard jersey has been thrown into the mix.
Gareth Maybin might be ranked 443rd in the world, but he’s number 1 when it comes to this.
