Does the “D” have a Triple Threat? by Klassy K
Hey, hey, hey, in my Fat Albert voice, no relation to Bill Cosby, but HOME SKILLETS what’s up? I’m sorry, but I’m so excited! No, I didn’t win the Mega Billion. However, I can’t wait to start talking about the sporting events that have been going on in the D! I know you have been checking out the games. Well, I hope at least. Please tell me you have. I have to say that the Da Pistons and the L-I-O-N-S, are doing pretty good so far. Yes, yes, I know in my last article, I mentioned that Da Lions “ain’t living their best life”, but Da Lions are looking quite impressive. They must’ve read my article, just kidding! Da Lions are 3-3 and rank 3rd in the NFC North division, for those that may not know what NFC means, “National Football Conference”. Now, I had to Google that myself. Did you know that Da Lions have never made a Super Bowl appearance? Close your mouth. Hopefully, that will change before my 5-year-old nephew graduates from college or when the White House has an African American Madame President. Hey, home skillets, you never know! I’m going to be optimistic.
Anything is possible, right? The sky is the limit! Believe in yourself! Never give up! I could think of every possible “cheer up” phrase, because sometimes money can’t always do it. Hey, maybe a billion could? I don’t know, cause in the words of Biggie Smalls, “mo’ money, mo’ problems.” Players make a living doing something that they have been doing since they were kids. You would think that it wouldn’t take much to go out on the field, stadium or court and give it their ALL! I’m not saying all of them don’t, but I don’t know. I guess the older you get the more stressful you become, because of the pressure of WINNING!
Speaking of stressful or should I say depression, Da Red Wings should not be allowed to enter the Little Caesars arena, period! Mike IIitch is looking down begging God to let him come back, so he can turn around his team. Da Red Wings rank last in the conference. Did you hear me? LAST! The last game Da Red Wings played, they only had 8 chances to score. The other team had 45 chances, I guess Da Red Wings should change their names to Da DEAD Wings or Da DEEP-Fried Wings? I’m just saying!
Now, Da Lions and Pistons are doing pretty good so far. So, I was hoping that the “D” had a triple threat with Da Red Wings, not. They “ain’t living their best lives” and I’m not going back and forth about them neither. Alright, I’m done! Da Lions have won their last two games and what ever the coaches and players are doing, please keep on keeping on. I’m going to keep hope alive! Now give me an air pump fist home skillets. I see you! Da Lions does have an upcoming game this Sunday, October 28, at 1:00 pm on Fox. Guess what? My psychic powers are telling me that they are going to beat the “shiznicks” out of them. I tried to use my psychic powers on coming up with the winning lottery numbers, but God said, “How can I bless you with all that money, when gambling is a sin?” Then I said, “Well, the person that has the winning lottery ticket, are they going to hell”? God said, “No comment.” Well, I guess that’s why I don’t play.
Now, let’s talk about, DET-ROIT BASKET-BALL! The pre-season has come and gone. It kind of looked like Da Pistons were not going to be a competitive team. However, in the regular season, Da Pistons are 3-0 BABY! Did you see the last game they played against the 76ers and beat them in overtime? OMG, shoot the way they played, it reminded me of the Bad Boys era. Blake Griffin scored 50 points! The last time a Pistons player scored those many points in a single game was with Richard “Rip” Hamilton back in 2006. I think Blake is trying to make the best of his days playing as a Piston. I mean he is 29 years old, and that’s really 49 years old in basketball years. Da Pistons are set to play the Cavaliers and the Celtics this week. Hey home skillets, do you think Da Pistons will go on a winning streak? 5-0? Be the BEAST in DA EAST?
