Richie Incognito, Redskins and Racism in the NFL
Huffington Post Sports - about 3 years
"Once upon a time, a woman was picking up firewood. She came upon a poisonous snake frozen in the snow. She took the snake home and nursed it back to health. One day the snake bit her on the cheek. As she lay dying, she asked the snake, "Why have you done this to me?" And the snake answered, "Look, bitch, you knew I was a snake." -Russell Means, Natural Born Killers Irritatingly, the "Richie Incongito Is a Bully" and the "Richie Incognito Said the Word 'Nigger'" storyline has been dominating the ESPN Sportscenter episodes recently. Just as my Seahawks get good enough to command serious national attention, some idiot who is considered an "honorary black man" by many of his fellow Miami Dolphins teammates simultaneously has 1) Shannon Sharpe crying like an infant; 2) white liberals judging this white man as if he were the first and only white man that has ever said this word; and 3) black folks upset.

The Art and Style of Katrina
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Eight years ago, during the unforgettable summer of 2005, Hurricane Katrina ravished through the Gulf Coast. We, along with many other New Orleans residents, were forced to relocate to nearby Houston, Texas. After Katrina we saw many new businesses in New Orleans face inevitable failure. During the two years that we spent in Houston, we came together to develop a lifestyle brand that reflected the cultural influences of New Orleans and our love of high end fashion and couture. What we produced was a rare and eclectic collection we call "Jerk and Jon." We returned to New Orleans in 2007 with "Jerk and Jon," a business plan and even more tenacity. Our unique design style and custom made pieces began to create a buzz through the music, sports and entertainment industry. We had the fortune of working with the likes of Jackie Jackson, Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson, Kerri Hilson and Elise Neal. However, we wanted to find a way to share our fashion experiences with the city of New Orle ...

Evelyn Lozada After Domestic Violence: I Have A Different Vision Of My Life
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Evelyn Lozada wants fans to know she has been reborn. Bent but not broken by her turbulent past, the 37-year-old reality star covers Latina’s August issue with a simple message beside her: “I made a decision to change.” HuffPo got an exclusive look inside the magazine, set to hit newsstands on July 9, in which Lozada reveals details about “the incident” with former NFL player Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson and her plans to start a foundation to help other domestic violence victims. In the interview with Latina, the Puerto Rican star recounts the moments of fear after Johnson head-butted her over a receipt for condoms she had found in their car. The “Basketball Wives” star required six stitches on her forehead as a result of what she has dubbed “the incident;” physical marks that she now credits for her actions. “...what’s sad is that if that day, if I didn’t have physical wounds, I probably would’ve walked right into that house because I wouldn’t have wanted anyone to k ...

Hank Koebler: Aaron Hernandez Arrest: End of an Era in New England
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
The opening of a first-degree murder case against recently released tight end Aaron Hernandez is likely also the closing of the New England Patriots' window to win another Super Bowl with quarterback Tom Brady under center. The Patriots' release of Hernandez on Wednesday ended questions about the troubled 23-year-old's future with the team but raised many more questions about the direction in which New England's offense is heading. With Hernandez off the team and fellow tight end Rob Gronkowski reportedly set to start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, the Patriots' offensive identity has completely eroded in one offseason. The focal point of New England's offense since 2010 has been the Patriots' two-tight end sets. By drafting both Hernandez and Gronkowski that year, the Patriots were able to spend the next three seasons moving both of their tight ends all over the field to create a plethora of mismatches for opposing defenses. The mismatches crea ...

Following the touchdown, he grabbed a jacket that resembles the Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees' jacket that said, "Future H.o.F 20??". Johnson finished the game with 5 receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown. In the next game against the Cleveland Browns, he racked up 209 yards on 11 catches for two touchdowns in the 51-45 loss. This gave him a career total of 7,229 receiving yards, breaking the Bengals franchise record previously held by Isaac Curtis.

Against the New York Jets, in which the Bengals won 38-31, he had 3 receptions for 102 yards and a rush for 15 yards.

Johnson accumulated 260 receiving yards and scored two touchdowns, which broke the previous Bengals record for most receiving yards in a game. He went on to amass 190 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns in a 31-16 win over the New Orleans Saints in the following week. This gave him an NFL record 450 receiving yards in back-to-back games, breaking the previous record of 448 set by San Francisco 49ers receiver John Taylor in 1989. In the following week, he gained 123 yards receiving breaking the three game receiving record since the NFL–AFL merger in 1970 and coming within 40 yards of the all-time record.

    More Details Hide Details The list, an obvious parody of the original, asked several questions regarding Johnson’s performance both on and off the field. According to the Bengals' official website, the list was aimed to galvanize the Baltimore Ravens, whom the Bengals would play in four days. Johnson was not pleased with the new list, as he had developed a superstitious faith in the older list. He had a stellar performance during the game, prompting the return of the original list. In 2007, Degree and Yahoo! created an online version of his checklist. The checklist allowed fans to vote for which NFL quarterback Johnson would like to play catch with the most. Every vote helped him raise money for his charity project,"Feed the Children".
    During the 2005 NFL season, Johnson announced that he would keep a checklist, titled who Covered 85 in '05, that would evaluate the defensive backs that successfully managed to cover him.
