Memphis at Ole Miss: The Four P.A.W.S.

Memphis at Ole Miss: The Four P.A.W.S.

Possibilities: With the Rebels having a matchup against No. 3 Alabama the week after hosting Memphis, it’s quite possible that Ole Miss could overlook the Tigers –a nearly three-touchdown underdog. Much of Tiger Nation is hoping to catch the Rebels sleeping and get out of Oxford with a victory on the road.

‘A Little R&R on Sports’: Ghetto bravado

Signifying, joning, jiving, talking smack, playing the dozens and trash talking are all types of verbal war games in which a majority of us African-American males growing up in urban environs were engaged…regularly.

Strategically, the key is to point out and exploit any real or perceived weakness, deficiency or shortcoming of the other person. Tactically, the key is to make it as sharp, cutting and as funny as possible.

Vikings’ Peterson Booked, Released in Child Injury Case

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was booked into jail and released on $15,000 bail early Saturday morning after he was indicted on a felony charge of reckless or negligent injury to a child, ESPN reports.
Peterson reportedly beat his 4-year-old son this summer with a small tree branch as a form of punishment, allegedly causing multiple injuries to the child, according to CBS Houston.

During interviews with police, Peterson referred to the incident as a “whooping,” which occurred in Spring, Texas, in May, the news station reports. He said his son had pushed another of Peterson’s children off a motorbike video game. As punishment, Peterson grabbed a tree branch, which he called a “switch,” removed the leaves and struck the child repeatedly, the news station writes.
