Jim Rome vs. Jim Everett Video

Maybe I’ve been living under a rock, but I didn’t see this video until this week. And I think it’s awesome — you definitely see the cockiness even in a very young Jim Rome.

8 Reactions to MTV’s VMAs

Rihanna at MTV's VMAs

So I probably haven’t sat down and watched MTV’s Video Music Awards in full since the 8th grade, but last night I settled in for the long haul. The absurdity that followed was to be expected, but here are my reactions nonetheless. 

1) What the hell was Rihanna wearing? She needs to be less of a Lady Gaga and more of a sexier Alicia Keys. When you’re that hot, you don’t need to be weird.

2) Whether you like Eminem or not, he’s a great performer. He sounds exactly the same live as he does on his albums.

3) Usher can sure dance. I bet Puffy was sitting in the audience all crunked thinking yea I’m responsible for that too.

4) Chelsea whatever-her-name-is cracked a joke about TI not being able to attend the ceremony. TI and his wife were arrested last week, and the cops said that the car smelled like weed. Upon further searching of the car, they also found what they beleive to be ecstacy. The pills are being tested. TI got out of jail 5 months ago. Come on man.

5) “Dog Days Are Over” by Florence and the Machine — guilty pleasure or do I am just subconciously dying to see Eat, Pray, Love?

6) The World of Jenks = stupid. Very stupid.

7) Lady Gaga wore meat? What?

8)Kanye’s performance was good and certainly showed his star power, but the chorus to that song is questionable.

Thoughts?

The Jersey Shore Miami — If Snooki Was an Athlete…

The Situation Jersey Shore Miami

Hey T.O. -- Have we got a Situation?

So I got to thinking — this is a sports and entertainment blog, right? Why not combine the two? The Jersey Shore Miami provided obvious inspiration — the big conflicting personalties and the ripped bodies (minus “Snickers”) pushed me over the top. I mean, Paul Pierce calls himself “the Truth” and Allen Iverson is “the Answer.” Ring any bells? The best part about the Jersey Shore is that it no longer needs to be a guilty pleasure — it is now so mainstream and so well loved that nobody is denying it any longer (guess I have to keep my love for Merideth Brooks’ “I’m a bitch” to myself). Jersey Shore has blossomed into what all reality TV strives to be — a perfect blend of emotions and trashiness thrown together in one hour of brilliance. Here is the end result of all this brainstorming — my list of which athlete is most similar to each of The Jersey Shore Miami’s characters.

The Situation & Terrell Owens — Come on, this one is easy. Both of these guys would have a press conference in their front yard just to do shirtless push-ups. The toned bodies and cocky attitudes match up, and they both run their mouths too much. But at the end of the day, you just can’t defend against em’.

Snooki & Glen “Big Baby” Davis — Both Snooki and Big Baby are both….well round and babyish. They both get overly emotional (just ask Kevin Garnett…he’s probably made them both cry), overly drunk, and dance horribly.

Sammi Sweetheart & Plaxico Burress — These two are very skinny, very “talented,” and at the end of the day both look like complete fools to the American public.

J-WoW & Serena Williams — This one is tough. These two could both beat the crap out of me. The both make loud noises when around balls. Yet I still sort of see the attraction? Maybe? All I know is if J-WoW saw Serena strolling down the beach she’d chase after her thinking she was one of her beloved “gorilla juice-heads.”

Pauli D & Tiger Woods — To me, this couldn’t be more obvious (and I couldn’t find many athletes with blowouts). Both of these guys do what they want when they want, bring their fans to their feet (Pauli as a DJ, Tiger as a golfer), and are reliable in the clutch. What more could you want?

Vinny & Albert Pujols — Silent and under-appreciated, these two are generally loved by all. And they both swing a big bat (as Snooki so eloquently told the world).

Angelina & A-Rod — This one is easy as well. Nobody cares about them, they should go back to where they came from, and they slap like little girls.

A-Rod slap

Ronnie & Rocky Balboa — These two are both stocky, jacked, stupid, and throw a mean right-hook. I picture Rocky drawling, “Yo Adriennnn!” then yelling at her and begging his way back into her arms. Picture Ronnie saying, “Yo Sammmm,” and then doing the same.

What do you think?

The Jersey Shore Miami — Must Watch TV

The Jersey Shore CastThe Jersey Shore Miami premieres tonight, the follow-up to the first season that introduced America to the disaster that is Snooki and the brilliance that is “The Situation.” As someone who went to college within an hour of the Jersey shore, I had the unfortunate privilege of dealing with these sorts on a regular basis — I definitely get particular amusement out of this gem of a show. MTV may have gotten lucky to some extent with this one, but they are merely employing a strategy they have now used many times before — capitalizing on America’s love for trashy TV.

You’ve got to think Miami will be great for Pauly D’s DJing career as well as the ladies — can they avoid grenades this year? I doubt it, but I’ll be watching. The show premieres tonight at 10:00pm EST on MTV.
