I remember driving to Mississippi to watch Southern U face Alcorn State. Southern had a good team that year but we were facing Air McNair. Hell he was an outside shot for the Heisman. So us (Southern) hung in there but McNair was to much. It was like watching a Wide Reciver at Quaterback. He was fast and had a rocket arm. The dude was the truth,but I wasn't sure if the NFL could see that? I knew he was going to be drafted but was he going to get a fair shake? He was Drafted to the then Houston Oilers. Then they procided to sit him ALL Year. Claiming that the "system" or playbook was to much for him. What? Whatever.To me they were tring to say he was stupid. Then once he did get to play he quieted his doulters. He played hurt just so that he wouldn't lose his starting spot. Acting like a black Brett Favre of some sort....
Moving on When I heard that someone shot him:I thought someone had robbed him. Then when I heard 4 times and the girl once I thought something strange had happened.So when all the details come out (an there still coming out) its still going to be sad. What I still don't understand is how someone 36 can date someone who's 20? I know it happens, but to leave your wife and 4 boys for a girl who should be in college or working at Charllotte Russe. Personally, I like looking 20yr olds and sure talking to them. But date them? Buy a car for them? Hell, I barly let anyone touch the Grand Prix! I'm like this, If you can't buy beer and rent a car your to young for me.
My favorite memory of Michael might be a little different than most. When I would do something good. My mom would play his "Off the Wall" album, and I would dance around an try to sing along.Yea I liked the "Thriller" Album too but There were some songs on "OTW" that I liked better. An seeing I wasn't always good it was a rare treat.
After the Pepsi accident, everything changed. Let's face it if your 5yrs old an going to work performing at strip clubs in Gary,Indiana an you never get a break til you almost in your 30's your going to be a little different.
I was in Blockbuster when the cashier told me that Mike had died."I was like really?" At the same time some white guy in his late 30's heard it an said, "Good ridence" I know why some white people wanted him gone or don't think this deserves all the press that he's getting. But lets face it none of there music artists are going to match what Mike did. Not Elvis, Santra or the Beatles.
Let's face it Mike would still be alive if he had some "No"men in his camp. Instead of 5 "yes" men doctors getting him some stuff harder to get out of the hospital than a blond-blue eyed baby! These idiots instead of watching Mike sleep, they went off to make a sandwish?! Mike paid these fools $400,000 a yr. each. Not counting what there making on the side. Shoot I'd watch Mike sleep every time he took that "stuff" that's used for surgeries. I'd bring a bunch of small mirrors to check his breathing, bring a couple of magizines etc. I could do that for a couple of years. (4 years tops)
Michael wasn't my favorite artist but I respected his work and his work ethic.The guy was talented, An lets face it I don't think will see anyone that famous again.
I realized something while playin around at Wal-Mart...It's a great place to take pictures! Why? Because of the lighting! I've seen so many pic's taken in bad lighting I could make my own web site called Icantworktheflash.com. With all those lights at Wally World give you that "real time feel". I know you got products surrounding you so why not use it!? Pick up a 2 liter. Pose. Pick up some bread. Pose. Or just pose while standing in the middle of the aile. I suggest late nite is a good time to do it as well. Nobody is there except the cleaning crew and stockboys. I wouldn't ask them to take your picture unless your cute.
