Weekend at Diggedy's - Volume 68

What's beef?

I'll tell you.

Some folks I know, who shall remain nameless, went to the baseball Hall of Fame ceremonies at Cooperstown a couple of months ago.. Think they invited sports super fan number 1 Diggedy to the festivities? No. No they didn't. Ok, fine. Maybe there were already 4 people in the car and they didn't want my 6'3" ass taking up a lot of space. Maybe they just don't like me. I don't know. It took me some time, but I got over it.

Until... I find out said fellows went to the basketball Hall of Fame a couple of weeks ago to see one of my favorite players of all time, Patrick Ewing, get inducted. Did I get an invite this time??? Of course not. The cherry on the top of the ice cream sundae? They ran into childhood a childhood favorite... The man who in Game 6 against the Bulls had a 4 point play that tied a game they would lose moments later on Michael Jordan free throws... The man who made Martin Luther King Day at the Garden an institution when his buzzer beater started the "you can't shoot with less than .3's of a second on the clock" rule.. That's right people.. Number 6, Trent Tucker.

What does that add up to?

Your choice cuts for this Friday, September 12th....

Jeru the Damaja - "Friend or Foe"

There's rumors that Guru went to Mark Messier's retirement ceremony at the Garden, and didn't invite Jeru. This was his response.

Ice Cube - "No Vaseline"

This is what happens when you don't invite Cube to a Lakers-Supersonics game. That's all I'm saying.

Black Sheep - "H.a.a. (Here's Another Asshole)"

It's pretty well known that Hammer was once a ball boy for the Oakland A's. Legend has it that Lawnge and Dres were sitting in the first row on the 3rd base line as kids and a foul ball was hit to Hammer. Lawnge and Dres were begging Hammer to throw them the ball, but he held on to it and gave it to the umpire after the inning was over. Years later, Black Sheep dropped this b-side.

Have a good weekend peoples!

No Vaseline?

I think we are going to have to get Farrakhan to quel the tensions on this one.

Jeru's song is so.... SAD. He thought he had one. But he had none.

I've never heard a more melancholy beef song. Poor Unca 'Ru!
