As the Olympics wind down, the track and field portion had one last hoorah to give us tonight. In a week full of records, heartaches, and unimpressive medaling, the US and Jamaica 4x100 M relay teams put on one of the greatest races in the history of the sport.
After a season out of the spotlight as a New England Patriot, controversial wide receiver, Chad Ochocinco Johnson, is making headlines again as a Miami Dolphin. Sadly, he's not in the news for catching deep balls. Johnson was booked on charges of domestic violence.
I'm not a big comic book guy, so the summer has been sort of blah as far as movies go. I know The Avengers has made over 600 million dollars, but I just haven't bought into flying super heroes since I have turned 12. There are, however, a few movies coming out that look quite bad ass!
With 80,000 fans cheering, Oscar Pistroius advanced to the semis of the 400 Meters today. With a season best time 45.44 seconds, you may wonder why such a large crowd was so hyped for a preliminary round. Well, perhaps you know Pistroius by his nickname - "Blade Runner". Saturday marked the first time in history that an amputee has completed in the Olympic games.
As the Track and Field portion of the 2012 Olympics get underway, with it brings the the most prestigious title: The World's Fastest Man. The title, given to the winner of the Men's 100 Meter dash, could be given to young man not quite yet a house hold name. Let's preview Sunday's race and see who could dethrone the reigning champ, Usain Bolt.
You know you have one - or a dozen. Your favorite movie quotes. A quick one-liner that you and your friends can drop anywhere, anytime and you all know exactly what you're referencing. I thought I'd share some of my personal favorites with you and see how many times I can get you to ask mom for meatloaf tonight. As a heads up, keep the kiddies away - Monte loves movies that involve cursing.
The 1996 men's Olympic basketball team was refusing to take any late game shots according to gold medalist and NBA vet, Grant Hill. It wasn't good sportsmanship that forced the team to pass the ball constantly in the fourth quarters, the team had no problem winning by more than 31 points per game. Rather, according to Hill, nobody wanted to be drug tested after the game as the leading scorer had to be.
I sound like such a smart man - well versed in the world of breaking news, politics and headlines. After all, I do watch news every morning. Truth is, osmosis take can all the credit. The brain may soak up the knowledge but the eyes are fixed on my lady, Robin Meade.
Remember the days before cell phone cameras? We had to load film and "rewind" our cameras once the film was used. Wait a week to see our blurry shots. With technology where it is today, we can take photos and upload them to social media sites in seconds from anywhere - even baseball games. The Valley Cats are getting on the technology band wagon for promotions with Social Media Monday!
Last night, Monte was hosting the Coors Light Rule the Night Party and thought: How the hell do I score my very own ice hair!? The Coors Light girls brought a chair made of ice to the event - sounds lame, right? Wrong! All this thing did was attract beautiful woman for photo ops, check the pics!
