If this week’s recap follows the Wrestlemania analogy that I set for the recaps last week, then this should be the breakout edition of the Weekly Recap.
Unfortunately, I don’t think I have a post in me that rivals the magic of the Ricky Steamboat-Macho Man Randy Savage match for the Intercontinental title mixed with Hulk Hogan doing the impossible and body slamming Andre the Giant, so for now, you’ll just have to settle for this picture of Kim Kardashian, some half-hearted attempts at one-liners, and videos from old hip-hop/90s rock songs.
-Speaking of Kim Kardashian, she’s getting married this weekend to Kris Humphries in a wedding that deserves the same (if not more) coverage that this year’s royal wedding received. Last night, Humphries tweeted out a preview of what he and his bride-to-be’s first kiss may look like, but if I have my way, it’ll look more like this.
-Yesterday, Terrelle Pryor was ruled eligible for the NFL Supplemental Draft under the condition that he’ll be suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season. The decision caused a lot of rage from the twittersphere, who pretended to care that Pryor will miss out on holding a clipboard or wearing sweats for five games this season.
In reality, there is reason to be outraged over the Pryor suspension, but not because it’s being carried over from his college suspension, because that’s not the case. As The Big Lead’s Ty Duffy put it, “Pryor didn’t commit an offense by applying for the supplemental draft. It’s asking a yes or no question.” So in summation, yes, Roger Goodell‘s an idiot, but not for the reasons you think.
-Former Miami Hurricanes booster Nevin Shapiro may be single-handely bringing down the Miami football and basketball programs, and while I’ve already posted some of my thoughts on the matter, more Shapiro news has come out since then. For one, Luther Campbell has compared him to Osama bin Laden. For another, they are now selling “snitches get stitches” shirts in South Beach. And finally, Michael Irvin has called him a rapist and a snake. But hey, any man who played a role in enabling the 7th floor crew is okay in my book.
-The Miami New-Times released a list of the ten worst celebrity tippers, and not surprisingly Tiger Woods and LeBron James ranked at No. 1 and No. 4 respectively. Not many celebrities on the list surprise me- it’s not breaking news that Sean Penn and Jeremy Piven are pricks- although even someone as cheap as me wouldn’t tip $1 on a $10 bill, Rachael Ray.
-Michael Vick did an interview with GQ, and aside from the fact that he doesn’t think white people understand him, the only interesting thing to come out of the article is that the NFL essentially restricted him from going to the Bengals and the Bills, and forced him to sign with the Eagles instead. If only every NFL player could be so lucky.
