Sports..U.S. Open, & Ready for the Challenge

Today was a good day for tennis..

It started out with top-seeded Ana Ivanovic lost in one of the biggest upsets in tennis history today, stunned by 188th-ranked Julie Coin 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 in the second round of the U.S. Open.

Venus Williams won her match in blowout fashion against Rossana De Los Rios in less than an hour to reach the third round. The seventh-seeded Williams won on her fifth match point, needing only 59 minutes to advance.

James Blake also had an action packed match until his opponent withdrew from the match due to rumored back problems..

More action is expected tonight from powerhouse Serena Williams, she is currently leading her match 6-1, with one to go..

Sad thing is, if everything goes as planned the two Williams sisters will meet in the quarter-final..meaning only one can make it to the end..

Comments and concerns have been made more frequently about the tendency for them to be matched against each other in early rounds. Officials say that round matches are computer generated and are completely random. I can't say really believe that. It's just like China gymnastics team, you know that they were underage but you just can't prove it.
Either way, it looks like it's going to be a great U.S. Tennis Open.
UPDATE: By time I posted this Serena had finshed her job by winning her match in two sets, 6-1. 6-1, under-cutting her sister by one minute, fininshing her the match in 58 minutes. Get em'

Intellect..I Want More!!

Bill Clinton, John Kerry, Joe Biden, & the teaser from Barack Obama.
What more do you want in one night...

Democratic National Convention: Day 3

Here are some moving Joe Biden moments:

"You know, John thinks that, during the Bush years, quote, "We've made great economic progress." I think it's been abysmal. And in the Senate, John has voted with President Bush 95 percent. And that is very hard to believe"

"Even today, as oil companies post the biggest profits in history, nearly $500 billion in the last five years, John wants to give them another $4 billion in tax breaks. That's not change. That's the same."

"He voted 19 times against the minimum wage for people who are struggling just to make it to the next day. That's not change. That's more of the same."

Our greatest presidents, from Abraham Lincoln to Franklin Roosevelt to John Kennedy, they all challenged us to embrace change. Now it is our responsibility to meet that challenge.

Our greatest presidents, from Abraham Lincoln to Franklin Roosevelt to John Kennedy, they all challenged us to embrace change. Now it is our responsibility to meet that challenge.

And then.... (Hit play)

I mean after that all I could hear was Archie's Song (singing) "We ready, we readdddy, we reaaady, for ya'll"

For those of you who don't remember...

Today is also the 45th Anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech..nobody but God could have set this up.. So, I'm defintley "Readdy"...tonight. There nothing else that could be anymore important.

Sports..Intellect..Governor Barkley? Umm..

Former NBA star and TNT sports analyst Charles Barkley attended the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday and answered five questions for at the CNN Grill. Here are some of his responses..

On why he's in Denver?
Barkley: I just wanted to be here. I'm just so excited. I never thought in my lifetime we'd have a black man with a legitimate shot of being president.

What do you think the Democrats need to do here to win the White House?
Barkley: I think they've got to just make sure to get those troops home from Iraq, that's a big deal. But No. 1, we've got to give poor people a chance. America is divided by economics, and we as Americans, we've got to do a better job of supporting poor people.

And the question that knocked my socks off...

Are you running for governor in Alabama?
Barkley: I'm planning on running for governor. I can't screw up Alabama. Politics, it's just so important, and I just want to do good things with my name, and I'm just going to keep continuing to do that.

Hold Up...Wait, wait, wait. I am I the only person that thinks there is something wrong with Charles Barkley running for governor. The political cartoonists' already called and said..Ha..he's waay too easy. Charles said in a Playboy article earlier this year that he would run..but most thought he was just making conversation. Plus, who doesn't love his humor and his knowledge on the game of basketball, but it would be really hard to take him seriously. I guess he's serious.
Another thing is I know that everyone deserves a fresh start but, for the state of Alabama, don't you think there is a little conflict of interest knowing his past issues with gambling? Plus, if, and that's a BIG IF, he was elected, who's going to replace him on TNT? I could not see that trio working without him. Charles was the only post-athlete that I can truly say was built to commentate on their sport.

Maybe I rushing too soon to judgement, but maybe I've made some good points. It would be some-what entertaining to here why he really wants to run for governor, and what he is going to come with to prove he should win.

What do you think? Should Barkley be in politics are should he keep on the hardwood..Hit me up and let me know.

Intellect..Hillary Puts on for Denver...

Alright, she finally said, her last and final piece..I think. Here's how it went down.

Democratic National Convention: Day 2

Some of her statements that stuck out with me:

"Barack Obama is my candidate. And he must be our president."

"We are on the same team, and none of us can sit on the sidelines. This is a fight for the future. And it's a fight we must win."

"No way. No how. No McCain."

Former Govenor Mark Warner of Virgina also spoke and had some intresting things to say:

"Two wars, a warming planet, an energy policy that says, 'Let's borrow money from China to buy oil from countries that don't like us.' How many people look at these things and wonder what the future holds for them? Their children? Their country? How many?"

"You know, America has never been afraid of the future, and we shouldn't start now. If we choose the right path, every one of these challenges is also an opportunity. "

I really felt that Hillary was ginuine in her speech and make a good attempt create some unity in the Democratic party. Hillary and Barack will definitley have to put in some more work to really sell the Hillary supporters.

How do you think Hillary did? Did she come off ginuine and sincere? Did she do her job of uniting the party? Hit me up and let me know.

Intellect.. More Than A Woman

Democratic National Convention: Day 1

So, I going to give you a little insight on what the happs were during the convention and my opinion of what was relevant.

Ted Kennedy spoke tonight, and barely left a dry eye in the house. Obviously, the show stopper was Michelle Obama. She truly gave an inspirational speech.

Statements that stood out with me:

"All of us are driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just won't do-"

"And Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values: that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say you're going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don't know them, and even if you don't agree with them."

"They'll tell them how this time, we listened to our hopes, instead of our fears. How this time, how this time, we decided to stop doubting and to start dreaming. How this time, in this great country -- where a girl from the South Side of Chicago can go to college and law school, and the son of a single mother from Hawaii can go all the way to the White House -- that we committed ourselves, we committed ourselves to building the world as it should be."

I feel that just like Barack has a quality that inspires, she has a quality that inspires. To say that you can't do it ALL in such a way to make you feel that tomorrow is what your are waiting change everything. I can say her speech will forever be remembered by me and others. So take a moment to think about yourself and figure out how you will make your mark on tomorrow...

Hit me up and tell me what you thoguth about the DNC tonight..was it what you expected. Was there something that stuck out in your mind?

Sports.. Olympics Recap

Hello again, on the last day of the Olympics; a lot went on while you were sleeping so I made the sacrifice to bring you all the action for ya bright and early.

Early Saturday morning the Women's basketball team won their 4th straight Gold medal and Spain. The U.S. Men's Olympic basketball team survived a huge challenge from Spain, winning 118-107 Sunday in the gold-medal game.

US Men's volleyball competed in the Gold medal match against Brazil and came out with the win. Plus, China brought their artistic touches again for the closing ceremonies. Taking this Olympic ride with you guys has been real fun, complete with jaw drops and all kinds of emotions. So let's do this again in another four years..same time, same place, different year. 2012; London.

My favorite moments were watching the James Blake and Roger Feder tennis match, the Micheal Phelps on the real close mill-second swims, and Men's basketball final match. What were yours? Hit me up and let me know.

Sports.. Olympics Recap

So after the sloppy men's and women's 4x100 relay races, the leader of USA Track and Field said the federation will conduct a "comprehensive review" of the way it trains and coaches its relay teams after the men's and women's 4x100m relay teams each blew medal chances by dropping the baton in Olympic qualifying.

Both of the teams dropped the baton and did not advance to the finals. In his weekly blog on the USATF Web site, CEO Doug Logan said he has received a number of e-mails from fans saying the dropped batons in both relays Thursday were "reflective of a lack of preparation, lack of professionalism, and of leadership."

"I agree," Logan wrote Friday. "Dropping a baton isn't bad luck, it's bad execution. Responsibility for the relay debacle lies with many people and many groups, from administration to coaches to athletes. That's why, when these Games are completed, we will conduct a comprehensive review of all our programs."

Darvis Patton and Tyson Gay missed on the final exchange in the men's semifinal heat. Gay worked on exchanges with Patton in Beijing but was not present at the U.S. track team's training camp in Dalian, China, where two full practices were dedicated to baton passing.
Torri Edwards and Lauryn Williams bobbled the last exchange in the women's race. The men missed the final for the first time since 1988, and the second since 1912, and the women for the first time since 1948.

It means the U.S. will go 0-for-6 in Olympic sprint events -- 100, 200 or relay -- for the first time ever. If you didn't see the Men's and Women's butterfingers relay moments it's
HERE. All in all, yesterday was a bad day for the US Teams as a whole, favored women's diver Laura Wilkinson came in last, and the US Women's softball team, which has never lost a game since the sport made it's debut, lost to Japan and was left with a Silver medal. My thought is no country is perfect, but yesterday's historical losses make for a strong comeback, especially with the Men's Basketball final coming up. I'll continue keeping you updated with these last couple days of the Olympics so stay tuned.

Tonight: All the relay finals go don't be looking for the USA representation till tomorrow.

Note: There was a recent quote that I really liked by Micheal Phelps:
"It's the Olympics. If you can't get up to swim in the morning, don't go.”

Intellect.. 2nd Place Winner?

So just to school some of you who don't know, the Democratic National Convention will be coming up on the 28th of this month. This reason I mention this is because Hillary Clinton has recently on announced that even though Barack Obama is the presumed Democratic candidate, she will put her name on the ballot at the Convention...

The crazy thing is I'm not surprised by the news that she's on the ballot, I was surprised she actually had the kahunas to do it. Long before Hillary and Barack were the candidates that mattered a friend and I had a discussion about how the end was really gonna play out. Let me paint the picture for you..

So of course, it was going to come down to John Edwards, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama. Then we took John Edwards out of the picture because his wife talked to much, and ultimately he had his opportunity at a presidential run, as well due to his wife's illness he didn't spend enough time on the campaign trail. So, with it down to Hillary and Barack, my friend said Hillary I said Barack, but he has to win it before the convention, then I thought about it..and realized they are going to try to pull something off crazy. And now it's staring us right in the face.

If the delegates all of a suddenly have some kind of epiphany about Hillary and decide to go with her they actually can mess a lot of things up for Barack. My thing is people don't normally jump off bridges unless the have a parachute. MSNBC commentators said she wouldn't get any votes because of what the delegates have to be accountable to their constituency. But the delegates have the right to change their minds. Like I said, Hillary wouldn't put her name on the ballot if she didn't have a plan.

When all is said and done, Barack is still going to when the nomination, but more delegates than you think will vote for Hillary, and that's just the bottom line. I personally, think that in her mind she wants it all and will sell her soul to the devil to get it. She is like that bug you squashed and spllattered with your show, and ten minutes later somehow ends up taking a walk in your shower or sink. Relentless. Hillary wants everyone to know how relevant she is to politics right now and that's what's soo sad about this situation. How would she feel if Barack did that to her?

So that's kind of how I feel about it. What do you think, do you think Hillary will steal some of Barack's delgate votes..Is she being a sore loser or is she just trying to get what's her's in these historical political times? Drop me a line and let me know.

Music.. Throwback Friday

I know it's been awhile but I'm starting it off right again..Throwback Friday! One of my favorite Hip Hop artists who has been off the scene lately, TWISTA!! Here is one of my favorite Twista songs from 2004, "Overnight Celebrity". It's hard to believe that it was actually not that long ago, I have always respected his flow, it always seemed so original.

He is recently back with a little hot verse off of Mike Jones track "Cutty Buddy"..that track will definitely be heating up the charts soon if not already at your spot. I'll post it as soon as I get it. I'm mainly trying to give ya'll some hot posts at Speedy Gonzalez speed right now because of the technical difficulties below.

So "hear" it is, the first of many today..TGIF and have a good one!

Sorry for the delay...

I know you are probably thinking. what the h*ll is up with Suga HiL, she hasn't posted in like 5 days. Well the unthinkable happened, my 3 month old laptop crashed. Yeah I know, that ish was brand new. Anyways, over these last four days I have been through every emotion possible; sadness, anger, joy, disbelief, rage, confused, dumbfounded, all of them.

HP has officially gone to my bad side. I'm not going to tell you all the gory and almost unbelievable details but I will say HP IT people (which to me were trained by dumb and dumber) gave me some instructions that left me with un-recoverable software that I paid for..HOT, boiling hot I continue to be. I digress though. So basically, nothing has gotten fixed over the last few days with HP on the phone, and they are sending me recovery software as a last attempt before they have to replace it with a new one.

So bare with me during this time and I apologize for the brief inconvenience. I would have just continued to do my posts from my friend's house but I feel it just wouldn't be right posting from another computer but mine except for in emergency cases to let ya'll know what's up. The best way to describe it is a football player making a touch down with a basketball..yeah it's a touch down but it's just not quite right you know?

So keep in your prayers as I continue you to go through this ordeal which should be done with by tonight.

Sports.. Olympics Recap

Alright guys, I'm back with the Sports Goodie Bag, and this one will detail what's going on in the Olympics Day 5/Recap.

Last night Phelps won one more Gold medal; this one for the 200m medley. I think I can officially say that any race that Micheal is in, he'll win the Gold medal.
The U.S Women's gymnastics team who I told needs to get they minds right..fell apart during the last two rotations of the final. They had the opportunity to capitalize on China's mistakes on the High Beam but they as well made mistakes plus some they could not afford on the Floor rotation. So they ended up with a Silver medal, which is good, but you just should have seen the way they fell apart. My heart goes out to them for a loss like that.

Today you can look forward to more Micheal Phelps winning Gold medals. Also, the Individual Gymnastics finals start today, which could be really interesting. I'm sure China will be all in the mix seeing that they took both Team All-Around gold medal for gymnastics.

For those boxing fans you can also look forward to quite a few match-ups tonight. I will be watching most of it but tonight is definitely not one of those "action days". But, I'll keep you updated.

NOTE: Post Update to Aaron Rodgers Pre-Season Debut
Like I had predicted Aaron Rodgers didn't have his A game face on, it was more like his B- game face. Final score Bengals 20, Packers 17. I have to admit he did a lot better than I thought he would do. We will see if he can take the real heat when the season starts.

Music.. Artistry with a Champion Spirit

So keeping the Olympics in mind I had to post the new video by Kanye West "Champion". Not only do I love the song, I love the creativity and thought behind it.

With all the sports overload lately, I really thought long and hard on whether to do Olympic updates and what not. So, for your reading and entertainment pleasure..I have decided to do some recap/daily posts about whats going on at the Olympics for those of you who don't have the time to see the drama unfold.

Olympics Day: 4 Preview & Update

Tonight's Prime time highlights include the Women's Gymnastics, and Micheal Phelps continued road for 8 Gold medals.

As far as the Women's Gymnastics goes, Team USA needs to get it together. They had too many mistakes during their qualifying rounds, every time I looked around they were eating the mat..I know there is a lot pressure, but your trained to do this. They are currently in 2nd place behind China going into the finals tonight.

You obviously know that Micheal Phelps has been doing his thing (unless you live under a rock). He'll be going for his 4th Gold medal in the Olympics in the 200m Butterfly. I have never seen an athlete so young, that has so much passion and heart about their sport that regardless if you like the sport or not, they make you like it.

You are now informed on what to be watching tonight, the other stuff is just filler. Track and Field is also supposed to really get started tonight, but no one worth mentioning is hitting the track tonight.

Sports..Put Up or Shut Up

So I couldn't let this one go by seeing that there has been sooo much controversy concerning Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre..more to the latter. Anyways, tonight on ESPN, at 7/8 ET the Green Bay Packers will be playing in their first NFL Pre-Season game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Lambeau Field.

Now, I have already spoke on letting Brett Favre play/drama, but have yet to speak Aaron Rodgers play. First of all, I don't know what the Packers are expecting of this dude..He's not Jesus, nor is he a Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, or Tony Romo. This guy hasn't even played that if this game goes how I think it will go..I'm going to be laughing the whole season.

Secondly, with all the drama surrounding this QB spot, I really sense a Chicago situation. Switching quarterbacks every week..I feel that the Packers set themselves up for that kind of situation with the way they handled things. You have these "Supposedly" good QB's , and once the season starts they play like the analyze turf for a living. Now, maybe I'm wrong, but most likely I'm not. One thing I do know is that I will be checking out Mr. Rodgers to see the state of his game. I also know the strategy the Pre-Season games so I don't expect that much from him, but I do know want to know if he sucks it up, cause everybody is checking for him this game and you know how football politics can be..What do you think..Is he gonna choke or is he getting the Packer's vote? Well shall soon see.

Topic of Discussion: Kids and Cell Phones

Several reasons for this topic even though I don't have any kids.

Reason 1: I felt myself having deja vu with the episode of the Bernie Mac(RIP) show when Vanessa asked for a cell phone from her Aunt Bonita. My niece and me; same situation. Hmm what to do?

Reason 2: I almost caught a case with a "looked to be" 11-12 year old girl in Victoria's Secret, with her cell phone all "blinged" out and Princess on the back. This little chick had the nerve to be talking all loud to "Jenny" and wasn't paying attention that it was her turn to check out..Ughh. Why? (And what does she know about Victoria's secret, she don't even know what her secret is yet??) But I digress. It's always a coincidence though, cause when I'm thinking about posting about something, an article always end's up in my face or inbox the next day. Crazy.

So I read an article this morning on CNN called "What to know about buying your kid a cell phone", it was really informative. The major issues for getting your child a cell phone were obvious. Which were to keep an eye on your child, and just in case the parents/child have an emergency. The reasons for not getting a child a cell phone were:

Cost: Obviously kids drop, brake, and lose cell phones. I'm also reminded about my friend's child who ran up $300 dollars in ringtones and games. (My belt would have been smokin')

School Safety: The more kids that have cell phones, the more cell phone systems will be over-loaded in a true emergency. Also, several incidents have been reported lately of disputes among teenagers as a result of text-message cheating and inapproriate videos being spread around campus.

Sexual Predators: Obvious threat, but more than that my hairstylist state's "Little 10 year old hootchie's sending bikini picks to her son".

Health Risks: I'm sure everyone has heard the reports about cell phone use causing cancer. Some reports strongly agree, and some reports say you have nothing to worry about.

I honestly, came to the conclusion that Auntie's don't need to be giving niece's cell phones. Secondly, at her age, that cell phone will be nothing but a hinderance in school, and a financial loss for her parents. I think 16, is a good age for a child to get a cell phone but not a minute earlier.

What are your thoughts? Hit me up and let me know, and tell me how I should break it to my niece that I'm not getting her a cell phone. Oh, the article is linked under source..take a read.

So, this post doesn't necessarily directly relate to intellect, but I think that intellect is another way of just being smarter about yours. (That's another topic though) But, anyways, if I was smart about mine I would have saved a lot of money on my vacation had I done this post earlier.

I'm sure you know by now that since gas prices are soo high that they put all those costs back into your plane ticket, baggage, etc. So, I did a little research and brought ya the airlines that are going to take all that cash, and what new technology to look forward to on your next flight. (Only major airline carriers)

1. Southwest: The one major airline that isn't bucking the trend of increasing fees.
- No charge for checked bags (up to two), nonalcoholic drinks, blankets or making a change to your flight. The discount airline has even launched an ad campaign to brag about that fact. Its new slogan: "Fees don't fly with us."

2. Delta:
- No charge for the 1st checked bag ($25 to $50 for the second), free drinks and blankets, and a flight-change fee that hasn't increased from $100.

3. Continental:
- No charge for the 1st checked bag ($25 for the second), and it's holding the line on the other freebies, like drinks and blankets, as well as still offering free meals like sandwiches, burgers and pizza. But it recently raised its change fee from $100 to $150.

4. Northwest:
- Fee for making flight changes to $150, to go along with a $15 charge for the first checked bag ($25 for the second). Nonalcoholic drinks and blankets are still free.

5. American:
- Also hitting you up for $150 to make flight changes, and charging $15 to $25 for the first and second checked bags, with soft drinks and bedding still gratis.

6. United A:
- $15 to $25 for checked-bag fees; $150 to make flight changes. Plus, the highest standby fee: $75 if you want to fly standby on a different flight the same day, a service that for years was free and now commonly costs $50 on several airlines.

Lastly, expect Wi-Fi if you plan to fly Delta airlines anytime soon. Yeah!!! or No!!! Delta has decided to incorporate Wi-Fi on it's planes as early as this month and by summer all flights will be equipped with the technology.
Oh course it's not know better. Prices will be $9.95 for a flight less than three hours and $12.95 for the longer flights.

I personally was excited at first but then I started thinking about interference issues (Even though I know they test this stuff) as well as the whole isolation factor that I came to like on a flight. Now, all I'm going to hear is the constant typing when I try to go to sleep on the flight? Plus, the laptops do take up a lot room space wise when you try to work on a plane.

I don't know..I just think sometimes we (U.S.) just over do things. Can't we just keep it simple.. I would personally like more seat space than Internet?

How about you? Let me know, and I hope I helped you out a little bit. God knows I could have used the info a lot earlier, since American Airline popped me for $75 on my bags for my vacation.

Being a woman that's really trying to do the career thing, this election has really got me digging for answers to all my questions. I think every election should be like that but especially this one. So, my question that I was digging for yesterday was where the candidates stood on equal salary pay for all genders and races.

In any case both candidates talk the "Big" talk on giving women equal salary pay. As a voter, I don't want the talk I want the action.

The opportunity was given to both candidates to vote on legislation recently, that would have made it easier for women to sue their employers for pay discrimination.
So when all the talking was said and done Obama supported the bill; and McCain opposed it.
"I'll continue to stand up for equal pay as president - Senator McCain won't, and that's a real difference in this election," Obama said.

McCain has said he supports equal pay for women but had said the measure would lead to more lawsuits.

Obviously, I don't know the ends and outs of the piece of legislation, but what I do know is women have been getting the short end of the stick for decades when it comes to salaries and it is still a major problem.
At least, Obama is proving how serious he is by supporting legislation that tries to get women where they want to be. (Seen as equals on ALL fronts)

Since, the sports world is soo overloaded right now, I decided to give you a goodie bag of what's going on in the sports world right now.

Oh course, I will start with Brett Favre: According to ESPN, the Pacs offered him 25 million for 10 years to not play...If it was me..You know I'd be out. But since it is Brett Favre and he's all heart, he wants to play. So I say let the man play. Details have just recently came out that him and Aaron Rodgers are going to have an old fashion showdown for the #1 QB spot. I definitely ready for this to get interesting.
Full Details on Brett and him trying get put on again:

Moving on to Tyson Gay. He is the main dude me, and alot of ladies are checking for on the track. Oh I forget, the projected winner for the 100 m in Beijing. But, the good thing is his hamstring is on the come up.
"When I step on the line in Beijing, don't worry. I'll be ready to go"
Check Gay out 8-08 when the Olympics get started up.
Details on Gay and his hamstring

Yao, oh Yao. When I posted about the mini drama between Yao and Artest I knew there were going to be some apologies coming out. And the pudding has been posted. Yao apologized, of course. If that team ever plans to make it to the playoffs, those two have to have good chemistry. I told ya so.
Here is where all the drama came from.
Full details on the scripted apology to Ron Artest.

I can't leave you without someone getting arrested..Paul Pierce. Yep, I said it. This one is a little suspicious..I since from the story a DWB situation, along with a little attitude and a Corona. Anyways, he got arrested, was given a Breathalyzer, passed and then they let him go. Hmm.
Get the full details about the situation.

Honorable mention: Take a look at possible NBA-OKC, team uniforms. Whatcha think?

I hope I hooked ya'll up properly. Let me know.

Okay, this one is for the fellas. I got some flack about not telling the guys what to wear. Also, a friend of mine always says that ladies clothing is much cheaper than guys clothing. I don't think that is true but, I'm going to somewhat put an end to that myth by giving you some options.

So, from what I have been told, having two older brothers. I have come to find that the best way to start and keep GQ swagger is to start with 10 ties and 10 shirts..of course this is dependent on you having slacks first. (So, make sure you have a least 3 pairs of tailored and fitted slacks:Black, Gray, Khaki) If you have those you'll be straight.

Giving yourself 10 tie and shirt combinations gives you at least 100 opportunities to get your swexy on. (SWEXY- Swagger and Sexy) Here is a couple of options that I like the best.

I definitely feel like I gave you guys a good foundation. If there is some fashion questions you might have, or something that I just need to know (I've been told I don't know everything) hit me up. Plus, of course, I need to hear from the fellas just to make sure I did ya right, but don't I always?

It's about that time again "Throwback Friday"!! This one comes to us by way of Jesse Powell. Circa 1998. The crazy thing is that I know Jesse had atleast 3-4 albums and out of all those albums this is the only song that I remember or still listen to. Does anybody know what happened to him? I mean, his voice was definitely on point. Hmm.. Oh well, enjoy the video.
