Kobe Bryant made a formal apology for his use of a homophobic slur during Tuesday's game calling his comments "Stupid and ignorant" as he called into the Dan Patrick show earlier today.
Bryant added "In this situation, seeing how many people were affected, it helps you understand the weight that comes from that word. That's why it's very important for me to communicate how sorry I am to use the word."
The Los Angeles Lakers have taken the apology a step further and have reached out to GLAAD which stands for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, to get rid of the word entirely in the NBA. Good luck with that.
"In light of this slur, there is a real opportunity to build support for our community and educate fans of Kobe Bryant, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the NBA about the use of such words," said GLAAD president Jarrett Barrios."The Los Angeles Lakers have taken a positive step and we look forward to working with them to create messages from players and coaches that combat bullying. We also suggested and will continue to advocate for zero tolerance policies for anti-gay slurs at home games, similar to what the New York Yankees adopted last year."
Although Kobe has apologized, he is still appealing the fine. Kobe, instead, accept the fine and donate $100,000 to GLAAD. That way, your fine and the donation is actually tax deductible.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Surprised Kobe Just Didn't Buy The Ref A Ring
Our prayers go out to his family and fans.......
"It is with profound sadness that the family of George M. Steinbrenner III announces his passing,'' the Steinbrenner family said in a prepared statement. "He passed away this morning in Tampa, Fla., at age 80."
"He was an incredible and charitable man," his family said in a statement. "First and foremost he was devoted to his entire family — his beloved wife, Joan; his sisters, Susan Norpell and Judy Kamm; his children, Hank, Jennifer, Jessica and Hal; and all of his grandchildren."
Sources say he had a heart attack at his Tampa, Florida home Monday night and passed shortly after.
Steinbrenner was known for his controversial ways. He was the proud owner of the New York Yankees but embraced his reputation as a philanthropist in the Tampa Bay area.
Let me say this right off the bat. Major League Baseball, PLEASE make this a yearly thing!!!
I was at one of the Los Angeles Dodger versus New York Yankees games this weekend and I have never heard a crowd like that at a regular season Dodger game. Whoever is in charge, the rivalry is not dead and make sure it isn't by making this a yearly inter-league series. 30 years is way too long.
That being said, there was major star power there this weekend and no, Gaga was not there wearing a Yankee jersey and nothing else.
Instead, we had Zac Efron, Demi Moore, and Ashton Kutcher all at the game. It appears Zac and Demi were rooting for the Yankees and Ashton had the Chicago bears football team on his mind...at a baseball game. Way to think outside of the batters box Kutcher.
The visiting Yankees took the series from the home team Dodgers 2-1 after giving up a pretty safe lead last night.
As much as I love A-Rod and Jeter and the Yankees, I am a hometown boy n I was rooting for my Dodgers. Didn't help much, did it?-Dr.FB
A week after rooting on the New York Mets, Lady Gaga showed up to the New York Mets versus the New York Yankees..wearing a Yankees jersey and really not much else.
Gaga wore the Yankees jersey open exposing that she was just wearing a bra and panties and nothing. Now, if she were knocking on my door, that would be appropriate attire. For a baseball game? Not so much.
Come on, you never saw Madonna wearing the cone bra to a Yankees game or Prince wearing ass less pants to a Timber wolves game. There are ways to dress for a game and still keep your image intact. Also, after sitting on those seats, who is gonna want that stank ass?
Gaga also made her way into the Yankee club house and flirted with players. Management was not happy. It had more to do with her visiting the club house after a loss. ESPN covered the story as well. No word if Stuart Scott did the report wearing bra and panties as well.-Dr.FB
Your eyes do not deceive you. That is Jay Z behind Alex Rodriguez outside of Nellos in New York City. See what winning a world series does for you?
You gotta feel sorry for the girl who did not get her baseball signed..but then again, did she just happen to have a baseball in her purse if someone came out of that restaurant? Just saying.
Let's face it, it's A-Rod's world, we are just living in it. An "Empire State Of Mind" indeed.-Dr.FB
Congrats to the New York Yankees on winning their 27th World Championship.
I am sure New Yorkers are having a great time celebrating returning to the top yet once again.-Dr.FB
Kate Hudson has done a spread for A-Rod Elle Magazine and she looks kind of hot. Kate shares with Elle magazine that she is looking better because she has giving up drinking completely.
Alex Rodriguez was brought up and all she would say is that they are not engaged or married. Hmm. Well, I am sure we will get a butt load of shots of Kate at the next Yankee World Series game later this week.
What do you think of Kate's new look?-Dr.FB
