Tracy McGrady Retires After 1st & Only Strikeout

tracymcgradyThis is what you can call reaching your goals and knowing its DONE.

Credit to Bleacher Report for this one.

Tracy McGrady’s journey through the world of professional baseball may be over, but no one can say he didn’t go out on top.

The former NBA All-Star signed on to pitch for the Atlantic League’s Sugar Land Skeeters in February and struggled mightily on the diamond, serving up a smorgasbord of meatballs and wild pitches from the mound.

After posting a 6.75 ERA through four regular-season games, things began to look up for the slumping pitcher. McGrady earned was given a starting spot at the Atlantic League All-Star Game this week. It didn’t matter that he had walked 10 batters in 6.2 innings of play. The league was ready to give McGrady his moment.

And what a moment it was.

Brett Dolan of CBS Houston (h/t Aaron Gleeman of HardBallTalk) reports that McGrady pitched 1.1 innings at the Atlantic League All-Star Game on Wednesday night and managed to record the first strikeout of his baseball career.

McGrady, feeling the momentum shifting in his favor, promptly retired from the sport.

Indeed, McGrady called it quits after his first “K,” saying he had accomplished his goal.

“I told some of the guys that I am going to get a strikeout before I stop playing,” McGrady told Dolan. “I got it in the second inning. Thank you Jesus.”

A Chipotle Encounter Doesnt Stop Even After Police Arrive

4203826_GWill this potentially boost up people wanting to go to Chipotle.  Especially since this isnt on the NORMAL menu (you know kind of like that special menu in Starbucks you have to whisper and talk in code for).

Police in Newark, Delaware arrested a man and woman accused of committing a lewd act on the rooftop of a local Chipotle.

The incident happened on July 12 at 9:40 p.m. in Newark. Officers say they arrived on the 100 block of East Main Street after receiving multiple reports about two people engaging in sexual intercourse on the roof above the restaurant. First off who was being just STRAIGHT UP HATERS, because EVIDENTLY this chick here is down for whatever, WHEREVER

When officers arrived at the scene, they say they observed Michael Suh, 42, and Nicole Germack, 27, engaging in sexual intercourse on the roof at the very front of the Chipotle building.

The officer advised them to stop but says they continued for approximately 15 to 20 seconds before stopping. When officers told them they were under arrest, they fled to an apartment building on the 100 block of East Main Street. So the words “Police……STOP” mean nothing but “You’re under arrest” basically equals “OH SH*T! ! ! “

They were then taken into custody without further incident. Suh and Germack were released after receiving $1,800 unsecured bond on charges of resisting arrest, lewdness, indecent exposure, loitering and conspiracy.

Now im just waiting to hear that a couple got busy on top of a Jimmy John’s, Jersey Mike’s but not Taco Bell, because thats how you get hepatitis.

Shabazz Napier Expresses His Displeasure Over Lebron Leaving

shabazznapierAnd the “he left us, like he did them” fallout over Lebron leaving Miami and returning home to the Cleveland Cavaliers is continuing.

First, Joel Embiid blocked James on Twitter after his recruiting pitches went unanswered. Now, Shabazz Napier is erasing anything related to James on his Twitter account. This is like a bitter ex girlfriend.

When the Miami Heat drafted Napier, it appeared that the pick would help the team keep LeBron in South Beach. After all, James had made it known that he was a big Napier fan. It looked like drafting the point guard was a wise move by Miami.

Napier even followed James right after the draft:

Over the weekend, James signed a two-year deal, according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Napier has since unfollowed the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player, and he has deleted any tweets sent to him.

Napier entered the league thinking that he was going to play with arguably the best player in the world. Now that is clearly not gonna happen.  I wonder did he cry.

R&B Singer Allegedly “Beats It Up” A Little Too Rough

Kelly Rowland And The Dream In ConcertI guess all of the ridicule that R&B Singer August Alsina took for crying while receiving his first BET Award motivated him if you would. Well in a way no one expected to.

A woman says that she is considering suing August Alsina after allegedly rupturing her cervix during sex.

According to the woman the pair met on Instagram, (ahhhhh social media hookups) and after chatting back and forth, he invited her to his show in Virginia.

The woman compared Alsina’s privates to a bottle of Febreeze, and claims she lost so much blood from their encounter that she could have died. The woman intends to sue August Alsina for pain and suffering.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOW if she does sue who does this case ACTUALLY benefit, her who may or may not get some financial compensation or August Alsina who is guaranteed going to find a NEW BATCH of women to play SEXUAL FEAR FACTOR with him.
Then again if this is unfortunately true what dude is going to want to sexually follow something like that.

Deer Causes Extensive Damage After Going Into Liquor Store

deerdamageI think the best way to possibly describe this is BAMBI GONE WILD

A young deer managed to cause $3,000 in breakages during a brief visit to a liquor store in the Boston suburb of Weymouth.

Tarlochan Gidda, owner of Quick 6 Liquors, told the Boston Globe that the panicked animal knocked down cocktail glasses and premium liquors, including a $205 bottle of Sam Adams Utopia beer, and then began banging its head on a refrigerator. But Gidda said the deer did little damage in its final break for freedom down an aisle of high-end French wine.

The store’s security cameras recorded the visit, showing the deer was in the store for only 2 minutes.

Weymouth, an inner Boston suburb with a population density of more than 3,000 people per square mile, has about 30 deer per square mile, said David Stainbrook of the Massachusetts division of fish and wildlife. He said the deer might have seen the reflection of trees and sky in the liquor store window and mistakenly perceived Quick 6 as a tranquil refuge from the busy street.

John O’Leary, a letter carrier, was in the store when the deer arrived and helped Gidda encourage it to leave.

“It ran up Moulton Ave. faster than anything I’ve ever seen,” O’Leary said, describing the animal as “young and strong.”

Gidda said the only injuries were to the deer, which left patches of blood on the floor.

Teen Is Overcharged HIGHLY For Pizza

dominospizzaImagine what would happen if one night you got hungry ordered yourself a pizza and did the normal pay with your credit card  but hen you check your statement you get a big shock.

A teenager who ordered a pizza from Domino’s ended up with a massive overdraft charge on his bank account after a cashier accidentally charged him more than $300,000.

The pizza price gouging happened in the town of Newport in England to a high schooler named Nathaniel Bolwell. He found himself feeling hungry late one night and since most of the restaurants and shops were closed, he gave his local Domino’s Pizza a call. He ordered a large pie, some drinks and a couple of sides, an order that normally costs around $30 but the next time he tried to use his debit card, it came back as overdrawn. Bolwell didn’t have a lot of money in his account but he knew it shouldn’t have been overdrawn because he didn’t make any huge purchases and his card hadn’t been stolen. So he called the bank to find out that his account was overdrawn to the tune of 178,000 pounds or roughly $300,000 in American dollars.

Needless to say, the Domino’s Pizza franchise that ran his order made a mistake. The cashier who charged him for his order accidentally tacked on his four digital bank authorization code onto the price of his purchase and they failed to notice their little mistake in time. The bank and restaurant realized the error and Bowell’s extreme overdraft charges have since been corrected.

The amazing part is that the bank who handles the restaurant’s transactions still charged Bowell 178,000 pounds. Who in the hell would spend $300,000 on pizza with one order? I mean besides affluent stoners who are so spoiled that their math and financial comprehension skills were already in the toilet before they toked up.

Marijuana Shortage Set To Threaten Washington State

marijuanasalesWhile many in Washington State are about to raise there lighters to the sky in celebration of the final hurdles for recreational marijuana being passed.  But before anything else is placed into “rotation” there may be another problem….a shortage in product.

From Reuters:

His glass pipes are on display and final regulatory hurdles nearly cleared, but the biggest concern for Cannabis City owner James Lathrop as he opens his Seattle pot shop this week is the possibility of running out of mind-altering bud in a matter of hours.

“What do you do when your shelves are empty? Do I just send everybody home? Do we try and stay open? I can’t pay people if we aren’t selling anything,” said Lathrop, who expects to become one of Washington state’s first legal marijuana retailers this week as the state issues licenses.

The state is poised on Monday to become the second after Colorado to allow retail sales of recreational marijuana to adults, under a heavily regulated and taxed system that voters approved in November 2012. Stores could begin operations as early as Tuesday, with up to 20 expected to open statewide.

While Colorado, where regulated retail sales rolled out fairly smoothly in January, is collecting millions of dollars per month in tax revenues, Washington has charted a glacial and more halting path to market.

Pot regulators, business owners and analysts say pot could sell out in Washington within hours or days at the few shops slated to open on Tuesday. That is largely because of limited harvests by licensed growers and processors, or because they failed to clear regulatory hurdles to get their product to market.

Washington is also grappling with a backlog of hundreds of would-be growers who still need to be screened by overwhelmed investigators with the state Liquor Control Board, agency spokesman Brian Smith said.

The board has so far licensed fewer than 80 growers statewide, out of more than 2,600 applicants. And only a fraction of their pot — roughly 560,000 square feet is in production, or about 10 football fields’ worth — has gone through required lab-testing. Many harvests won’t be ready by early July.

“There is a gold rush mentality. Many didn’t read what it would require to get a license. … We didn’t expect 7,000 applicants,” Smith said of the number of interested growers, processors and retailers.

Cannabis City’s Lathrop could find only one grower ready to ship on July 8, opening day, and plans to suggest customers stick to a 2-gram limit to stretch his supply.

HIGH PRICES

Shoppers looking to get high on Tuesday could see a gram selling at $15-$30, said Dominic Corva, executive director of Seattle’s Center for the Study of Cannabis and Social Policy.

Novelty-seekers and tourists might pay $25 or $30 per gram – roughly twice the current price at weakly regulated medical dispensaries. At those prices, heavy users will stick with neighborhood dispensaries or drug dealers, Corva said.

Even as legal retail operations roll out, dozens of cities have enacted pot moratoriums or outright bans. Also, no stores will carry popular “edibles,” such as pot-infused brownies, because no processor has been cleared to operate a cannabis kitchen.

Investors and regulators remain hopeful the market will ramp up in the coming months as more growers, processors and retailers come on line.

But at least one grower expects it will take much longer.

“It’ll be at least three to five years before we meet the demand,” said Bob Leeds, co-owner of Seattle-based Sea of Green Farms, which got its license to grow and process pot in March.

On a recent afternoon, Leeds’ employees were huddled around a table packing palm-sized baggies with pot strains like Dutch Hawaiian, Space Needle and Double Purple Doja. They were inching toward the 36,000 bags as well as hemp-paper cigarillos they will ship to stores statewide.

Leeds said he charges stores about $3,000 to $4,500 per pound, or $7 to $10 per gram before local, state and excise taxes, and any retail mark-up. He predicts stores will sell out within hours of opening on Tuesday.

“There won’t be any more until weeks from now,” he said. “We’ll have our second crop in July.”

After Racist Twitter Tirade Sirius XM Fires Popular Shock Jock

AnthonyXMEarlier in the week popular Sirius XM personality Anthony Cumia of the ever popular Opie & Anthony show went on a racist tirade of his encounter with a black woman in New York City.

Well that tirade has bit him in the proverbial ass because he’s been FIRED from Sirius XM and he still isnt letting steam die down.

He tweeted Friday morning, “Sirius decided to cave and fire me. Welcome to bizarro world…”

And he said in another tweet, “After the weekend, I’ll have a better idea of things. F— Sirius.”

Cumia went on Twitter earlier this week to tell a story of a run-in he had with a black woman in Times Square. He called her “a pig” and an “animal” after he said she punched him in the face as he was trying to take a photo.

Now, Sirius XM has decided to “terminate its relationship” with Cumia.

The satellite radio company said in a statement:

“SiriusXM has terminated its relationship with Anthony Cumia of the Opie & Anthony channel. The decision was made, and Cumia informed, late Thursday, July 3, after careful consideration of his racially charged and hate-filled remarks on social media. Those remarks and postings are abhorrent to SiriusXM, and his behavior is wholly inconsistent with what SiriusXM represents.”
