Greetings, readers. Time for another edition of Midweek Thoughts.
1. 2017-18 NBA Season: Last night, the new season kicked off with a Cavaliers win (amid a horrific Gordon Hayward injury) and a Warriors loss on a waved off Kevin Durant bucket. The Washington Wizards open the season against the Philadelphia 76ers. I’m expecting big things from Wall, Beal & Company. Going to be lit.
2. Compassion For Fallen Soldiers: Sgt. La David Johnson was one of the U.S. soldiers killed in the ambush that occurred over in Niger. There are reports that Agent Orange made a remark to Sgt. Johnson’s widow by saying ‘But you know he must have known what he signed up for’. Rep. Frederica Wilson, who was in the car with Sgt. Johnson, confirmed that’s what was said. I wouldn’t put it past him because of other ignorant statements that he’s made in the past.
3. Rap Quote:
“Walked in the club, pocket full of big faces
Got that 40 on my waist and it’s off safety
About 40 goons with me and we all wasted
On Remy straight tonight, dogg, no chaser” – Plies from Gucci Mane’s “Wasted“
4. Fall Season Has Arrived: Hoodies and sweats season is upon us. Be mindful of your items, fellas. Ladies are out here snatching for keeps.
5. Survivor’s Remorse: I’m so annoyed that the show ended on a cliffhanger. But that’s how the ball bounces in Hollywood when you don’t have proper backing for your show.
