Here’s a quick briefing as to what is going on. The music is NSFW.
West Coast rapper Kendrick Lamar dropped a very big bomb of a verse in a recently released single with Big Sean. His second verse was brutal in all sense of the word as he called out numerous rappers and essentially called himself the best in the business.
(Don’t understand the lyrics? Here is some help.)
That verse caused Joell Ortiz to respond with his own diss track even though he wasn’t mentioned in Lamar’s second verse.
(Lupe Fiasco, B.O.B. and Cassidy have also issued responses despite not being mentioned in the verse.)
(Didn’t catch all of that. Here are the lyrics broken down.)
Sounded like a good idea to get fans involved. However, the responses have been pretty funny since most of them are pretty irrelevant.
The surprising announcement of a new jersey Tuesday came without any kind of previous promotion. But as we saw on Wednesday, there was a reason why the Pistons didn’t make much of an effort to promote it.
It just is not much of anything. Check out this promo video.
That was from last night. That kid caught a foul ball and his reaction is priceless. Good job! Bringing that glove is helpful.
I’ve never caught a foul ball at a major league game before. I always bring my glove, but it has never happened. I’ve been to probably 100 games over my lifetime. It’s never happened.
This is not to say I’ve never gotten a ball at a game before. I’ve gotten a foul ball at a minor league game when it bounced off a guy’s backside. I’ve had two balls tossed to me by players during batting practice. But the foul ball during a game eludes me.
The ball has come close to me before being several rows away. I’ve even sat in prime foul ball territory. But it has never happened. It’s one of those things on my sports bucket list. I don’t just want to get a ricochet. I actually want to catch it. I suppose that also is equivalent to catching a ball during batting practice.
Either way, one day. One day it will happen.
This was painful to read. I don’t understand head trauma, but I know that it’s dangerous and I am afraid that’s what happened to Titus Young.
