Did you know that you’re having your next birthday at Cowboys Stadium? No? Well you know now. Surprise. Your nephew’s bar mitzvah? Cowboys Stadium. The Winter Olympics? You know where it’ll be. Me getting with your moms? Cowbo … I’m just playin’. I’m going to her place when she finishes cage dancing.
It’s hard to find an event that isn’t taking place at Cowboys Stadium these days. The 2010 NBA All-Star Game and the 2011 Super Bowl will be taking place there. Preliminary talks have started regarding a Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight at Cowboys Stadium. The potential matchup would take place next March provided that Pacquiao beats Miguel Cotto this Saturday night and both camps can work out a deal.
Jerry Jones should consider a series called Gladiator Nights at Cowboys Stadium. There must be way to flood the field and have naval battles in addition to man vs. beast battles. Say you wouldn’t be interested in watching a recreation of the Battle of Antietam fought out by convicts and bears in military uniforms. What better way to make players play hard than tell them they can play well or fight in next week’s battle for their job? The possibilities are endless.

Driving up to a press conference in an empty armored truck?
I keep [cash] in my bank, baby,” Mayweather said, “even though my truck is bulletproof.”
You know the times are bad when the economic downturn starts making people to change their names. Floyd Mayweather Jr. might want to consider downgrading his nickname from Money to Change. It was only several months ago that he was making it rain in the club with $30,000. Now we find out that he’s having huge money problems.
Boxing Scene reports that Mayweather owes the IRS $6.1 million in back taxes from 2007 and the agency has placed a lien against him for that amount. If he doesn’t pay them in a timely fashion, the amount could increase by $500,000 a year.
Mayweather has been taking it from all sides since he made it rain in July. The last half of 2008 financially beat the former champion like his name was Javon Walker.

Oscar de la Hoya and Floyd Mayweather Sr. have alluded to Floyd Jr.’s profligate spending habits and money issues. It’s rumored that he gambles absurd amounts on sports in addition to having over 20 luxury cars. At this rate, he’ll be forced to get back into the ring to pay off his debts. Hopefully he doesn’t let himself go like Mike Tyson before that happens. The idea of Mayweather-Pacquiao matchup sounds pretty good right now.
Talk about ignant. For once, we’re not talking about Pacman. We talkin’ Floyd “Money” Mayweather, playboy. The temporarily retired boxer learned one or two things from the clusterfuck that was Black Super Bowl weekend in Vegas when Pacman and his crew shot up the club when making it rain went wrong.
Sandra Rose has footage of Mayweather making it rain in an Atlanta nightclub. “Floyd Mayweather emptied two Louis Vuitton bags full of cash into the crowd at a packed Dreamz nightclub in Atlanta last night. The IRS estimates about $30,000 was thrown.”
At least Money knew better than to carry the bills in garbage bags. Fortunately for the ladies, no one’s head was bounced off the stage. He was scheduled to drop $100K with Lil’ Jermaine Dupri the following night at Pure. He did his part by raining $50,000 on the crowd. Unfortunately we don’t have video of that.
