Check the Pillars

I was known for having, the upper hand
I was known as a stone cold ladies man...

***Tickets in the Denver Metro area for the NLCS are reaching as high as 12K for the plush seats, and over $100 for the face-value $10 Rock Pile tickets. People are camping out, selling their kidneys, sneaking in through the toliets, anything to catch the Rox. What is a hearty Rockies’ fan to do? One option is to make the roadie to Arizona to take in games there. The Snakes have nearly 8,000 tickets left for both Game 1 and Game 2.

***Is the Steve Nash haircut dude in your office with the Thule rack on his Saab, the wristband-style watch, and all the weird stickers on his cubicle out today? Well brahhhhhhh, he’s probably taken to the slopes…errr…slope. Araphoe Basin, a ski area west of Denver opens today, the first to do so in the country.

***A few quick observations form the VH1 Hip Hop Honors that was first broadcast a few days ago and will be run incessantly on the network the next few weeks:
-A Tribe Called Quest getting their dap was definitely in order, but Tribe wouldn’t be the rage if not for their Native Tongue forefathers, The Jungle Brothers or De La Soul. Would’ve been nice to either get some shine.
-Speaking of Tribe, can anyone tell the SG if Phife is alright? He looked like a mere shadow of himself, checking in at about a buck twenty five and just looking sullen and sick. On the flip side, Busta Rhymes cameo on the “Scenario” was a cool performance, but it looks as if he ate all his royalties from that song.
-Hopefully, more of the Hip Hop world knows about Whodini now. Long overshadowed in their day, they put out quality, “mature” releases like “One Love” and “Friends” but still brought it hard with “Funky Beat.” Their performance was perhaps the highlight of the evening, But their tribute? Nick Cannon? As Dave Chappelle once said, “son, f*ck Nick Cannon!”
-Harvey Keitel introducing Snoop? What was Kevin Spacey not available?
-Yes, Lupe Fiasco forgot the words during the Tribe tribute. Too much time on the halfpipe and maybe a few rehearsals, eh Lupe?

***The SG doesn’t usually complain if a cold frosty one is shoved in their face; we’ll choke down some ill beers, but Miller Lite ain’t one of them. It has to be well into a session or very, very, parched to drink one of those pissy garbage swills. Now the horror comes that the Mecca known as Coors Brewery in Golden, CO could be brewing the liquid poop known as Miller Lite. Excuse me while I weep.

Lupe said that he knows "Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em" better than the Tribe back catalog. How is that even remotely acceptable?

"when's the last time you heard a funky diabetic"

Phife has been on dialysis for the past three years and in the running for a kidney transplant.

I wept like a child who just stubbed his toe when I read that Miller crap being brewed at Coors

my big brother did a dance routine to Freaks Come Out At Night at a high school talent show. it was so cheesey. He was dressed like Jalil, with a cowboy hat and all.

Whodini had that real brief comeback song on a Terminator X's 2nd album, 94 or so (?)

^HV- Did you also see howhe said Midnight Marauders was "more his big sis'" music? Hammer was 1990, MM was 93, yet he knows Hammer better? Cmon Lupe.

^Trav- I remember that line; I never really knew the haps on diabetes and it's side effects. Hopefully he can get that kidney. I should have some Coors-Miller "inside" info soon.

^Poop- you need to get that on youtube! The song was "All Comes Down to the Money" from that CD. Pretty good track.
