Our boy, ‘Toine Walker finally got a plan together to pay back the various casinos that he owes over $770k because he failed to pay back a bunch of casino markers. With fines and restitution added, Walker has to pay up to the tune of just over $900,000. Ouch! That’s gotta be tough for a man with no job. He must pony up about $13,000 a month minimum at first and if he ever gets a basketball gig in the NBA or Europe he must pay a minimum of just over $21,000 a month. Double ouch! To use Antoine’s words:
“I’ve made some mistakes with some finances,
With the luck that Iverson has had finding a job this year, I’m sure that ‘Toine will have no problem getting a job. Everyone wants a me first, shoot first, out of shape, 33 year old forward on their roster. Well, maybe not here, but Europe might be calling, I mean he averaged 8.5 ppg last year in the NBA, that is like at least 13ppg there in Europe easy. He’d better get a job quick because the judge in this case, Melanie Andress-Tobiasson (right), apparently has no tolerance for any sort of shenanigans with his payments:
“I can tell you at the point he stops making payments, I will bind him up so fast it’ll make your head spin,”
This is just further proof that former Buffalo Bill J.P. Losman can’t cut it in the NFL right here. The rumors were true, instead of holding out for a backup QB position in the big leagues, Losman has decided to sign with the Las Vegas UFL team coached by Jim Fassel. Here’s his quote from the Seattle P.I.:
“I have followed J.P.’s career since his early days with Buffalo, where he impressed me with his raw talent, passing accuracy and on-field competitiveness,” Fassel said. “J.P. has all the attributes of a great professional quarterback, and I am truly looking forward to working with him.”
See how Fassel didnt say that he actually was a great quarterback, just that he had talent and attributes of a great quarterback? Pretty good with the words he is, also, pretty easy to be accurate when you havent thrown more than 200 balls in each of the last 2 years. Although I dunno what other attributes of a great QB he has other than actually being a quarterback. Fassel must have some keen eye that I don’t have…which is why he’s coaching in the UFL and not me I guess. Finally, you laugh like a damn girl JP! A GIRL! Ahem…well its true.
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.
The well has officially run dry for new ideas for musical theater when someone has come up with a musical about a poker tournament as a legitimate idea for a Las Vegas production. All In: The Poker Musical is a play about 9 people at the final table of the World Series of poker who come from all walks of life and “sing songs that are chock full with double entendres, poker analogies, quotes, lingo, and suggestive situations that also apply to the game of life and the cards we are all dealt.” Man, this sounds like a blast, huh?
“Through the lyrics of the songs and style of music, we see not only who these final nine players are, but we are able to see ourselves, our families, and our world,” said Phil Hellmuth.
Right…man that makes me really want to see this. Does this mean that SUPER BOWL: The MUSICAL is like right around the corner? What depraved soul would want to see a musical about people playing cards? The only thing that is somewhat intriguing about it is that it might be MORE interesting to watch people playing cards if there is a whole bunch of singing and dancing going on…might…very very very strong emphasis on the word MIGHT there. Let’s not forget that.
Tickets are $30-$50 and you can see it starting July 4th at the Rio. If you do, I want a full review. I’ll give you a free DVD which won’t offset the cost of the tix or the loss of a piece of your soul, but at least you can watch Tony Hawk do some crazy ass tricks. It has to be at least a couple words and cannot be “THIS PLAY SUCKS” over and over, I already know that is true.
Oh, and yes, I know this post has nothing to do with Jennifer Tilly’s melons…but who wouldn’t want to go all in there huh? I mean, am I right or am I right?
“That’s free money,” the 30-year-old Judah said Monday at a news conference to publicize the fight. “If he’s so confident and so much in shape, then why didn’t he take it? The last time I put a $100,000 bet on the table was against Corey Spinks. What did I do? I knocked him out.”
Apparently Judah doesn’t remember what happened to him when he fought Kostya Tszyu. He ended up taking on the ref because he was the only guy in the ring he had a chance of beating. Tszyu wrecked him in the second round of that fight. Mosley and Tszyu are no Corey Spinks.
Judah has to be one of the most frustrating fighters in recent history. He undoubtedly has the talent to be one of the best but he’d rather party and talk shit than work. That will be his undoing and he’ll end up sliding into the large group of boxers filed under “Who the hell was the guy?” despite rolling with H.O.V.A.
