Peep game… Soon enough, Charles Oakley is gonna be ‘holding court’ in the kitchen! And it’s looking like opponents won’t wanna mess with him there either. Haaa!
No ‘rough stuff’ per se. And the above video is just a rough cut for an old trailer that hints at what is to come. Who new Oak – the former NBA bruiser baller turned courtside cusser – had such flair, debonair (shooting his shot at the Honey next to him) and skills with the whisk and grill? Oh, and in case you were wondering why Oakley would want to cook instead of hire someone for that…
A lot of people don’t like to cook it the way you asked. You have it on the menu, and you say you want it one way, but a lot of chefs do it the way they want to do it. They get it wrong. I’m not mad at them, but when you wait 20, 30 minutes and it’s not right, a lot of times that’s disrespectful to me. When I cook, 95% of the time I know my food is gonna come out great.

For now, the title of the series being pitched is “Oak In The Kitchen,” and scenes for a demo reel to show to networks were filmed over the summer at the New Jersey home of Golden Era emcee Masta Ace and his wife (Leschea). All that throwback flavor involved for a potential cooking show. Nice! Hope it ‘pans’ out (grrrroan).

See, you’re wrong if you think Snoop Dogg’s expertise at commentary is limited to lovely ladies and sticky-icky at GGN. No sir! No ma’am! The DoggFather is trying to get at that King of Broadcast Media title. Watch Mr. Broadus put his pimpalicious touch to some MMA footage… and get ready to LAUGH!

You know the crazy pull-ups and push-ups, frontwards and reversed, with acrobatics and flair thrown in there, that you’ve seen them on movie screens and Internet spots? Well, those are street calisthenics… and they have become a movement and a movie. Check it.
An underground urban fitness movement risks losing its identity as a social tool as it rapidly becomes a new international sport.

What you should take away: Parallels to Hip-Hop. Something else comes up from the streets, lives around the way, gets blown up and goes worldwide (good) and commercial (not so good in some ways); and the culture is worried that its true and best self (e.g. its essence) will be lost.
Watch the trailer.
Yeah yeah, another dope “Tiny House” but eff that… do you seeeee them dudes’ what-are-THOSE toes though??!! How do you pull fine azz Tracey Edmonds with them sole survivors right there, Deion? Teach! And Zack, damn. Those toes inspire new cuss word combinations: Zack-DAMN maaannn! Hahaaaa!
John and Zack show Deion and Tracy the construction of their new tiny home and discover something interesting along the way in this scene from “600 Sq. Ft. Power-Couple’s Retreat.” #TinyHouseNation
In “Tiny House Nation,” renovation experts and hosts John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin travel across America to show off ingenious small spaces and help new families design and construct their own mini dream homes.
C’mon son! You gotta know by know that sneakers is religion! For sneakerheads, it is not just ‘shopping’… it is spiritual, ritual, and to be done right!
Jimmy Butler goes Sneaker Shopping with Joe La Puma at Saint Alfred in Chicago and talks wearing Jordans to the White House, walking away from his Adidas deal, and playing basketball with Michael Jordan.
Dude, this dude wore sneakers to the White House to chit-chat with President Obama (and bless him with a pair).
The folks over at Sports Illustrated Swimsuit said Simone Biles has got that Olympic Goddess Body! No argument here, just an addition… she’s FLEXIBLE (grin).
U.S. gold medal gymnast Simone Biles makers her stunning debut in SI Swimsuit by showing off her “Olympic Goddess” body in Houston. Go behind the scenes of her photoshoot, as she becomes a work of art.
Thick thighs, tight pacakage… Yeah, might get some subsciption boosts from this shoot 😉
I’m a big boxing fan. I just love the fact that it’s mano y mano. May the best man win.
Say that then, Carmelo. On this ep of #StayMelo the baller is off the hardwood and on to the squared circle. Checking out what makes boxers from Brownsville (Brooklyn, NY, USA) different; the “best community for true fighters.”
Brownsville, Brooklyn, has become known for its numerous high rise project buildings, tragic gang violence and world champion boxers with vicious knockouts. Mike Tyson, Zab Judah, Riddick Bowe, Shannon Briggs and countless other world champions all hail from one small section of Brooklyn that encompasses a few square blocks. In this episode of Stay Melo, Carmelo Anthony meets up with WBA Middleweight Champion Danny Jacobs to get a tour of the neighborhood and see what makes this place special. Their journey leads them to a kid named Bruce “Shu Shu” Carrington, who is looking to be the next boxer to put Brownsville on his back.

Serena Williams is wearing a thong, for the first time, in this behind the scenes vid. And that’s all we need to say about that. YOOOOOOOO!
Turn up the cheesy ’90’s hits and go behind the scenes of Tennis superstar Serena Williams’ stunning return to SI Swimsuit at Turks and Caicos.
Yeah, Melo could have just stayed on the celeb tourist path laid out by the Olympics host committee when he went there to hoop for the USA. But nah man. He had to take the VICE crew out and about and bring back this; another dope ep of #StayMelo
Carmelo Anthony won some hardware when he visited Rio for the Olympics, but he still wanted more out of the trip. In this episode of Stay Melo, we spend a day exploring some of the best views in Brazil and the favelas of Rio.

In a word, three words: Championship. The pinnacle of achievement in a competitve endeavor. To symbolize and celebrate the against-all-odds achievement of King James and his Cavaliers, Baron Championship Rings (another three words) crafted the Cavs’ 2016 NBA Championship ring.
Until now, you probably thought about the ring for the five seconds you ogled it. Now you will see how much goes into one of these things.
How about the best news coming out of the Super Bowl… the true highlight… Seahawks’ standout defensive end Michael Bennett switching helmet for the interviewer’s mic (or… um… smartphone). Pretty good. Pretty fun! Start above with dude interviewing Mark Wahlberg, Erin Andrews, and Alex Rodriguez; the and hit the jump for more media hijinx.
(Oh, you thought the Pats comeback was the ‘highlight’ though? NO! We’re in ATL baby. Falcons RISE UP… second to the Raiders though.
Yeah, yeah, yeah… something about music and dancing is grounds for good competitions. We get it. But focus! This is skydiving, inside, without the plane, or parachute, and better ‘noise’… so when can we get a turn??
Oh, they have a wind tunnel place in Marietta now, too. Indoor skydiving near Cumberland Mall where the new Atlanta Braves stadium will be? Um… excuse please. Y’all can watch this clip above. Someone around here has to get ready to get ready for some indoor skydiving of his own!!
Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots Are Going To Meet President Trump At The White House… Well, Most Of Them Are (Video)
Nelly joins Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe to talk about the Patriots visiting President Donald Trump at the White House.
When you are right, you’re right. Nelly’s right. Period! Tom Brady, great QB, captain of the team and a leader on field; but every Pats teammate need not follow him to the White House. No need to take a damn vote either. Brady was a grown man who decided not to go see the President a while back; and Martellus Bennett and Devin McCourty are grown men who get to NOT go, too.
Shannon had some good commentary in there, too.
‘Prisoners turn Muy Thai fighters to fight for their freedom’ definitely reads like a logline for a hit series. We assure you, it is not. Think more like ring announcer Jimmy Lennon shouting, “It’s SHOWTIME!” And you will be much closer to truth.
PRISON FIGHTERS: 5 Rounds To Freedom uncovers a shocking practice of liberation in the criminal justice system of Thailand. The SHOWTIME Sports original production examines a fully sanctioned and accredited rehabilitation program called Prison Fight through which convicted criminals can train and compete in fights that lead to early release. Premieres on Friday, Feb. 24 at 8:30PM ET/PT on SHOWTIME.
So, American 7s Football League says take the helmet off to reduce rates of concussion and CTE in full-contact football?? Simple, elegant, old-school solution. Okay. But…Daaaayuummm! Dudes are getting LIT the F*CK up!
Saying though, didn’t we have them putting on more and more protection? As the years passed in this American pastime aka the ultimate collision sport we all love, we have paid more and more; and made the sport more and more expensive to play. Perhaps this is a way to dial all that back a notch.
Maybe we should just make ’em play flag or two hand touch?
Naaaah (haha). Hit the link for more on the safety perspective. Hit play above to see some HITTING! Hit the jump to see more highlights from A7FL.
Marshawn Lynch Goes To Houston (Scotland) Delivering Skittles & Good Cheer Before The Super Bowl (Video)
The Super Bowl festivities are taking place in Houston, Texas this week, but former Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch took his bike and big bag of skittles on the road to Houston, Scotland to spread good cheer & kick it with the natives. Mashawn Lynch should have his own TV show. This dude is hilarious!! BEASTMODE!!!!!!
This is both hilarious & sad at the SAME DAMN TIME. SMDH. Terrible. Just Terrible.

Miami doing the right thing: Retiring the jersey & number of the man who helped bring the franchise its first NBA title… Shaquille O’Neal. Great ceremony. Moms rolling in the scale replica ‘Shaq Diesel’ rig, Coach Pat Riley lavishing the big man with justly deserved praise, and much more. Great watch.
Finally… The R… oh wait, that’s another pro wrestler’s schtick. Ha!
But wrestling fans might be feeling like “finally” when the kiss-stealing, wheeling-dealing, limousine-riding, jet-flying son of a gun gets his 30 For 30 shine on ESPN. Watch the teaser above for the ESPN documentary for The Nature Boy Ric Flair. Wooooooooo!
