Net we cast, fifteen coaches long
With all the basketball-related content that went down at last night VMA's, how could FreeDarko not have a man on the scene to make sure we scooped Page 3? While I was at home trying to figure out why Jamie Foxx has decided that taking over for Ray Charles in real life is a sound career move, Andreo was taking it all in and periodically texting me with updates. In a perfect world, he would write this himself. But since, ironically, El Huracan hath been felled in the electricity department by a real life hurricane, I am honorably presenting the abridged version (for maximum reader comfort) of our evening-long exchange. I only hope that I can do his reporting justice.
El Huracan Andreo: Rashad McCants sighting at the VMA's.
Bethlehem Shoals: I just told someone that you were probably there. Did Shakira get her nose done? Who was McCants with?
EHA: Waltzing around with no posse. R. Kelly sucks. Shakira has gotten everything done.
BS: Are you kidding? WORLD PREMIER!!!! Where are you sitting?
EHA: Club level. With the politicos.
BS: That Wade/Shaq cuddle was classic.
EHA: Get on the bandwagon, you sellout. It drives me to drink that you doubt so hard.
BS: I was serious, though didn't like the dig at #8. Who's 50's date?
EHA: Don't know. I think Kanye has proven that Kobe's failure wasn't class or situation-driven but pure personality. I smell blog entry.
BS: Good point, but West is a total egomaniac and like 8, a lot of people would love to see him fall
In a post-game phone call, Andreo confirmed that the city did indeed surround the Crackster with security after he insulted 50's personal army, and that the prevailing, quasi-scientific opinion is that Suge popped himself. All in all, another massively eventful VMA's weekend, and you should thank your lucky stars that we, and not some self-serving media outlet, could give you the view from within.
And an as-of-yet undisclosed FreeDarko prize will go to anyone who can explain McCants's presence at the Awards. THC insists it's the Hova connection, but Young's attentions seemed to be firmly focused on his date for the evening,
