Here’s what happened. So I saw Ricky Brown’s FB page the other day (yes, THE Ricardo Brown aka The Quick Brown Fox) and I ‘friended him’. I didn’t expect much of it of course. Lots of celebs use their names as brands on FB nowadays and are usually just corporate facades meant to inform their legions of followers with updates of what they’re doing and such.
Until a few minutes later I got a MESSAGE FROM THE MAN HIMSELF.

Dennis Rodman is probably my most discussed athlete on this blog. Reason being is that he is my idol, plain and simple. A decade plus ago while everyone was going crazy about Jordan, Kobe and the like, I believed in The Worm. I didn’t really understand why at the start, but his individuality and his constant need to go against the grain appealed very much to me at the time when I was searching for my own personality.

Boyoboy do we need this guy.
and by that guy I actually mean the Octopus Oracle, which has since predicted each world cup match correctly.

Used to be I really liked this guy. He had an awesome blog (and I like players who blog, and promote the heck out of them), and he came over 2 years ago and when he left, spread some love about how unexpectedly great the reception was, and encouraged others to come over.
Now, I spent the last twenty minutes smiling as I made this:

AI has taken me on a roller coaster ride throughout his career. When he won MVP, he was my idol. I was amazed at the idea of a 6’2 guard lording it over a league of 7″ behemoths. Here was the perfect anti-hero of the hiphop generation. A cornrow sporting, tattooed example of the youth rising up from nowhere to hold up the highest individual honor of all of basketball. A kid from the streets doing it right. What’s a more romantic scenario than that?

I absolutely have no idea how things transpired so badly the other night, but in the interest of keeping a record, here’s (belatedly) what I got. Yes, I’m referring to Wynne Arboleda’s going UFC on a fan in the middle of a game between Smart Gilas and Burger King, and not the game itself. Anyway, here’s the video:

So as everyone knows MJ shot his mouth off about how Bryon Russell ‘threw wood into his fire’. Well guess what. In recent news, the Utah Jazz NBA D-League owner is offering a $100,000 donation to the charity of the winner’s choice to see MJ play Russell play one on one.
Even earlier than that, Russell already said how willing he’d be to take him on, saying Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll play his aÃ¢â‚¬â€ right now, This is a call-out for him to come play me. He can come out here in his private jet and come play. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s got millions of dollars. He can pay for the jet. He can meet me at the Recreation Center in Calabasas.Ã¢â‚¬Â to Yahoo Sports.

Accusation, accusal (a formal charge of wrongdoing brought against a person; the act of imputing blame or guilt).
These days, Mark Barroca is in the hotseat. FEU has recently said more or less, that the reason he isn’t playing is either because ‘the team expressed dissatisfaction with his play‘ and / or he ‘gave in to temptation‘. On the other hand, Barroca himself issued a statement detailing how sorry he is about what happened (whatever it is), and how he is moving on (again, from whatever it is).
The problem is, there cannot be any moving on, there cannot be any apologies or acceptance of apologies without primarily explaining what it is he’s accused of having done.
Otherwise, there are two scenarios:
One: Either Barroca has been a victim of mismanagement – because you can’t just kick a player out due to ‘bad play’ or
Two: He’s getting away with murder – because if he sold a game, he has more than FEU or the UAAP to answer to.

By now everyone on the planet that’s ever idolized him has heard his Hall Of Fame speech, and by doing so hopefully taken away something good out of it. Frankly, I didn’t.
Which is not to say it detracts from his talent, ability and accomplishments. His greatness may have lessened, but certainly not what he’s done with his career.
