When Media Takeout reports a story, you know you’re going to need at least five more sources before you believe it. I couldn’t find a second but I’ll go with it anyway. The potential of it being true is too good to pass up. Who’s the journalist?
I imagine the fight went down a little something like the following (except the roles were reversed):
If this story is true, Money better get back in the gym and fast. Everyone’s going to take him on. I might think about stepping to him in a couple weeks if he’s not careful. I’ll probably cry after thinking about it but that don’t mean I ain’t no man.
What’s happened to Money Mayweather? He appears on the WWE and now he’s making Pacman Jones look good up in the club. At least Pacman kept it real when he made it rain in Vegas even if he proceeded to take his money back and tear up the club afterwards. When we say keeping it real, we mean he used real money.
My photographer Freddy O was almost arrested at a gas station this morning after trying to pay for gas with one of the counterfeit $100 bills that boxer Floyd Mayweather tossed in the air at Club PURE last night.
According to Fred (and several others in attendance) Mayweather’s “boys” were handing him the stacks of hundreds.
There is speculation that one of his “boys” switched out the real hundreds for the counterfeit hundreds and kept the real cash for himself. I would be inclined to believe that maybe Floyd didn’t know what his boys were doing, except that this has happened before!
Some club patrons in Las Vegas also complained about Mayweather tossing counterfeit bills earlier this year. We’re not talking fake bills of the copy machine variety – we’re talking print shop quality counterfeit bills.
I watch a lot of crappy reality television shows, but I’ve never been a fan of the Dancing With The Stars series. How this is interesting television is more curious to me than why I can fart so much more potently after 10pm than at any other time of the day. Watching “celebrities” dance with professional dancers and then judging them on their (lack) of abilities never, to me, seemed like engaging television. Nevertheless, people are interested in this crap, and sports personalities looking to keep their names in the lights have latched on to this in a big way. Mark Cuban, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Helio Castroneves are featured in this season’s Dancing With The Stars and since I am a gambling man, I looked up what the odds were that any of these yahoos would actually win this thing like Emmitt did last season.
Bodog has Mark Cuban at 23-2 odds of winning, easily some of the worst odds of any contestant on the show. This pretty much makes sense because he is, after all, just one gigantic computer geek.
What surprised me was that Mayweather doesn’t have the best odds of the three, at 6-1. You’d think he would have the best control over his feet and body what with all the dancing around you have to do in the boxing ring. I guess the bookies do not believe that shuffling around a ring translates onto a dance floor.
Helio is looking the strongest with 11-4 odds. I can only assume the oddsmakers have given him these odds due to either his Brazilian roots or because drivers have to move their feet quickly to push the clutch in to shift their automobiles. Amazingly they have Helio at better odds than such veterans of the stage as Wayne Newton and Marie Osmond. The bookies are laying down a bold statement with this. Either race car drivers have a heretofore unknown ability to really cut a rug…or oddsmakers are bigots. Shocking, I know.
