Where are our boxing stars? I grew up in the era of Mike Tyson, Riddock Bowe, Roy Jones Jr and my all-time favorite Evander "The Real Deal" Holyfield. You ask me why do I like Evander so much? Evander fought every one they put in front of him. No one ever asked Evander at the end of a fight, "Who is next for you?". They already knew that he was going to fight whoever the #1 contender was at that time. Evander fought, George Foreman, Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Michael Moore and ever other contender you can think of that fought in his era.
So, what is up with today's boxers. The public has been wanting to see Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao fight for over two years. These guys have been getting paid 30+ milllion to fight people I never heard of. The funny thing about it, the public is dumb enough to keep paying to watch their product. That is ridiculous! I bet if we stopped watching their fights, they would finally fight each other. At first Manny wanted to fight Floyd, but Floyd wouldn't fight him without a blood test because of the allegations of him being on performance enhancement drugs. Now Floyd is calling Manny out every week trying to get him to fight, and now Manny doesn't want to fight Floyd.
I got one comment for both of them....In the words of MC Eiht in the movie Menace II Society, " Both of y'all acting like a bunch off BITCHES!". Sorry, but I couldn't think of any other way to say it. Feels good to get that off my chest.

Well it's that time of the year again. My favorite unofficial holiday. The Super Bowl. Growing up, the Super Bowl was just as good as Thanksgiving when it came to eating.
I can remember that crock pot of rotel w/meat just simmering all day. (why would anyone not put meat in their rotel) Mom pulling the chicken wings out of the oven. A stove with different types of entrees cooking consisting of gumbo, jambalaya, or fried shrimp. Don't recall the vegetables. Lol.
I still remember Super Bowl XXVII when the Dallas Cowboys played the Buffalo Bills. This was the first time I ever had lobster tails. My dad must of got a hook-up, cause he had to have cooked 20 tails that day, and knowing him, he didn't get them from Wal-Mart. I think I had to have ate about 5 of them. You know what they say, give a man an inch and he will take a foot every time. Lol. Super Bowl XXVII spoiled me for lobster tails for the rest of my life. I laugh at Red Lobster deals involving lobster tails thinking, only 1 tail.
This year I'm attempting to make some Shrimp Etouffee. I'm doing a trial run today, so I can make sure Super Bowl will not be ruined by my experiment.
Well you heard what I'm thinking about eating, let me know what you will be snacking on while the NY FOOTBALL GIANTS bring home the crown again.
Holla at your boy!
