Last year I reported that when Los Angeles Mayor and consumate opportunist Antonio Villaraigosa tried to board the same Lakers championship parade bus as Kobe Bryant, Bryant said at the time, “I don’t like the —hole, I’m not going to let him pimp my popularity!”
During the abbreviated Lakers parade yesterday, a single bus was charged with carrying all the players. Thanks to Villaraigosa somehow also being allowed on the same bus, all hell broke loose on Twitter in reaction to L.A.’s stowamayor.
Below are a series of consecutive Tweets posted at the moment the mayor was first seen via local TV coverage on the Lakers bus:
Of all the Tweets about the mayor’s appearance in the parade, there wasn’t a single positive - or neutral - entry. In other words, Kobe has plenty of company.
Though I’m pleased to report that we did get some good news in L.A. today about our stowamayor.
The ABC-TV affiliate in Augusta (WJBF) and the Fox-TV affiliate in Atlanta (WAGA) had the unfortunate idea to run polls about the proposed
latent homosexual all-white basketball league by Don “Moose” Lewis.
(Think he’ll spend the evening alone?)
The Atlanta TV poll asked viewers: “Do you think Lewis’ all-white professional basketball league is racist?” 54% responded, “no, it isn’t racist.”
Augusta’s TV poll? Don’t ask.
Billy Byler of the AUGUSTA CHRONICLE has what seems like a harmless press release about the formation of a basketball minor league:
(Literalists, go no further.)
The All-American Basketball Alliance announced in a news release Sunday evening that it intends to start its inaugural season in June and hopes Augusta will be one of 12 cities with a team.
Thankfully Byler, and Rick Chandler, kept reading.
“Only players that are natural born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league.”
Brilliant! So who’s the
bigot mastermind behind this bright idea?
When you have to spend five minutes telling us how important someone is, don’t bother:
(Thank goodness for the six fingers of Cutty)
Can just hear the night-before convo: ‘Remember Coach Sparano’s daughter’s Bat Mitzah? Promise me no dried vomit in your hair this time’
