Wait… Pokemon Go Hasn’t Been Released in Japan Yet?!?!?

Wait… Pokemon Go Hasn’t Been Released in Japan Yet?!?!?

You can’t go anywhere, or read anything without someone mentioning Pokemon Go and trying to catch Pikachu.

This craze has taken over and is at a level that people are getting robbed at meetups, and causing accidents.

2-weeks after its release in the U.S. the numbers are insane; 30 million downloads and $35 million in revenue. In that timeframe Nintendo‘s value doubled that’s without a release in Japan yet!

SuperMario

As of right now Niantic (the game-maker) announced they have delayed the Japan launch, due to an email link discussing the launch plans. Whenever Niantic decides to release Pokemon Go in Japan, I hope their servers are ready for the onslaught of users.

And with all that energy, I can only wonder what will be the next fad to blow up.

Yes, Melania Trump Plagiarized Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC Speech….

For my conservative friends, say it with me…..

Yes, Melania Trump plagiarized Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC speech

That’s it! Stop trying to make excuses for Melania and the campaign’s speech writers, stop blaming Hillary Clinton, and stop blaming the media for focusing on this.

Just own it and move on, because the more you deny, the more it becomes a story/joke. This is a stupid story not worthy of the energy needed for the denial.

Minneapolis Cops Upset with Lynx Players and Their Message

Four off-duty Minneapolis cops left their security post at the WNBA Minnesota Lynx game in protest over Lynx’s players wearing t-shirts that called for a need for change.

Before the game the Lynx’s Maya Moore explained the meaning behind the shirts.

“If we take this time to see that this is a human issue and speak out together, we can greatly decrease fear and create change,”

“Tonight we will be wearing shirts to honor and mourn the losses of precious American citizens and to plead for change in all of us.”

Instead of approaching the ladies to discuss the meaning of the shirts, the 4 police officers took the childish way out and walked out.

And right there is the problem…

If those Lynx’s players got it wrong, why not talk to them and explain your point of view?

Kids play the silent game when they don’t get their way, not adults!

Carmelo Anthony’s Call to Action

I am a Carmelo Anthony fan!

Now, when I usually say that I say it in the context of the Knicks and defending Anthony from the haters (You know who you are).

This time around I proudly state my fandom for Melo because of what he’s doing off the court.

In the light of the tragic events of Alton SterlingPhilando Castile and Dallas. Melo, who is not known for his leadership on the court has put out a call to action to everyone…

“The system is Broken. Point blank period. It has been this way forever. Martin Luther King marched. Malcolm X rebelled. Muhammad Ali literally fought of US. Our anger should be towards the system. If the system doesn’t change we will continue to turn on the TVs and see the same thing. We have to put the pressure on the people in charge in order to get this thing we call JUSTICE right. A march doesn’t work. We tried that. I’ve tried that. A couple social media post/tweet doesn’t work. We’ve all tried that. That didn’t work. Shooting 11 cops and killing 5 WILL NOT work. While I don’t have a solution, and I’m pretty sure a lot of people don’t have a solution, we need to come together more than anything at this time. We need each other. These politicians have to step up and fight for change. Go to your local officials, leaders, congressman, assemblymen/assemblywoman and demand change. There’s NO more sitting back and being afraid of tackling and addressing political issues anymore.  Those days are long gone. We have to step up and take charge. We can’t worry about what endorsements we gonna lose or whose going to look at us crazy. I need your voices to be heard. We can demand change. We just have to be willing to. THE TIME IS NOW. I’M all in. Take Charge. Take Action. DEMAND CHANGE.”

As Melo mentions, there’s “No more sitting back…”

He has laid down the challenge, it’s now up to us to take him up on it!

First off let me start off by saying " All Praise Due To The Most High." Secondly, I'm all about rallying, protesting, fighting for OUR people. Look I'll even lead the charge, By Any Means Necessary. We have to be smart about what we are doing though. We need to steer our anger in the right direction. The system is Broken. Point blank period. It has been this way forever. Martin Luther King marched. Malcolm X rebelled. Muhammad Ali literally fought for US. Our anger should be towards the system. If the system doesn't change we will continue to turn on the TVs and see the same thing. We have to put the pressure on the people in charge in order to get this thing we call JUSTICE right. A march doesn't work. We tried that. I've tried that. A couple social media post/tweet doesn't work. We've all tried that. That didn't work. Shooting 11 cops and killing 5 WILL NOT work. While I don't have a solution, and I'm pretty sure a lot of people don't have a solution, we need to come together more than anything at this time. We need each other. These politicians have to step up and fight for change. I'm calling for all my fellow ATHLETES to step up and take charge. Go to your local officials, leaders, congressman, assemblymen/assemblywoman and demand change. There's NO more sitting back and being afraid of tackling and addressing political issues anymore. Those days are long gone. We have to step up and take charge. We can't worry about what endorsements we gonna lose or whose going to look at us crazy. I need your voices to be heard. We can demand change. We just have to be willing to. THE TIME IS NOW. IM all in. Take Charge. Take Action. DEMAND CHANGE. Peace7 #StayMe7o

Matt Harvey Opts For Season-Ending Surgery #DarkKnight

Matt Harvey‘s season long nightmare has come to an end, as he has decided to have season-ending surgery to address the recently diagnosed condition thoracic outlet syndrome. This occurs when muscles in the neck and shoulders impinge on nerves leading to numbness and loss of strength and stamina in the shoulder and arm.

All season long Harvey has insisted that he just could not get comfortable on the mound, and it was evident by his performance. The pitcher known as the Dark Knight lost his feel for the game, his pitches, and the love of many Mets fans (Not this one, just saying).

And while surgery is never a good thing, especially for a pitcher and his arm. Harvey seems relieved to know that there was something physically wrong possibly causing his issues.

I can’t wait for the Dark Knight to rise again next season!

Bystanders Wake Up and Recognize #AltonSterling #PhilandoCastile

When I 1st heard Jesse Williams acceptance speech for BET’s Humanitarian award. I couldn’t help but focus on the following….

And let’s get a couple things straight, just a little sidenote – the burden of the brutalized is not to comfort the bystander.That’s not our job, alright – stop with all that. If you have a critique for the resistance, for our resistance, then you better have an established record of critique of our oppression. If you have no interest, if you have no interest in equal rights for black people then do not make suggestions to those who do. Sit down. – Jesse Williams

Every time there’s a video released of police brutality or a shooting, there is always someone that needs an explanation of why this is a problem. Over the past year or 2, I have found myself trying to be understanding and taking the time to explain, but after watching Alton Sterling and Philando Castile being gunned down… I just can’t do it anymore

If you can’t see there is something seriously wrong with what is going down in America after watching these latest videos; then that is on you!

And if you answer to all of this is just comply with the police… As Mr Williams said, “SIT DOWN!”

Matt Harvey Roughed Up Again, And I Know Why…..

Matt Harvey is going through his roughest stretch as a major league pitcher. At this point it doesn’t seem like it’s anything physical, and everyone has talked about his mechanics and his lack of confidence.

But I know what’s the problem….

Batman_v_Superman_poster

That’s right folks, ‘Batman v Superman’ premiered March 25th and was critically deemed a flop. Around the same time Harvey was diagnosed with a blood clots in his bladder, he hasn’t been the same since, hmmmmm

That’s right I blame Ben Affleck and DC Films for Harvey’s struggles!!!

LOL, but in all seriousness folks, Harvey is struggling right now but he will figure this. What Mets’ fans need to do is support the guy they cheered and called the savior at one point. There’s a reason the day he pitched was celebrated and called ‘Harvey Day’.

He is too good for him not to bounce back… Keep the faith Mets’ fans, The Dark Knight Will Rise Again!!!
