HOMELSS SOCCER WORLD CUP
Soccer players from 18 countries kicked off a world cup of a different kind Monday in southern Austria: All the players are homeless. Yes were talking about a Homeless Soccer World Cup. Countries that flew in players include England, Spain, Sweden, Slovakia and Switzerland etc.
My this is since they are homeless are they going to be living on the streets while in Austria for the tournament and when they do fly back to their countries are they going to be let loose on the streets again?!?! Weird.
BEANIE SIGEL ARRESTED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER
Beanie Sigel is out on bail after being charged with attempted murder for a shooting that occurred outside of a bar in West Philadelphia earlier in the week. Sigel turned himself in to authorities after the Roc The Mic concert in New Jersey, in connection with the shooting of Terrence Speller. Sigel allegedly shot Speller in the stomach and foot around 1 a.m. Tuesday. Police said that Speller argued with two women outside of the Pony Tail Bar on South 52nd Street. Of course nobody is sure if the charges are true but some rappers are always doing and saying dumb stuff that why they keep getting caught up in dumb situations.
DR. DRE TO JA RULE YOUSE A MIDGET
After months of silence Dr. Dre has finally laid a lyrical smack down on Ja-Rule on the diss track sh*t Hits the Fan. Dre busts This little n---a Ja Rule talking 'bout he gonna slap me/ N---a please, you gotta run and jump and swing up to hit me in the knees/ I laugh at these magazines when they talk to him/ All they do is make fake threats to us through him." The Doc also says Rule could never be Tupac before chiding, "Quit trying to be tough, n---a, you look like a a--hole." To me this is just wickedness on Dr. Dres part because Ja Rules career is pretty much over (for the moment at least). Unless he comes out and reinvents himself somehow Im yet to see how hes going to do that. Seriously does anybody still listen to Ja Rule. I wouldnt know sha cos I was never a fan DMX already slaughtered him and he tried acting but man is he horrible or what?!?!
WOMAN MARRIES INMATE KIDNEY DONOR
A woman whose life was saved after a prison inmate donated his kidney has married him in Romania. Diana Moldovan, 30, tied the knot with Dorel Vidican in a surprise ceremony which will be broadcast on Romanian TV this weekend. Vidican had been serving a three-year sentence for theft when he read in a newspaper last year that Moldovan, whose had been on dialysis for 11 years after her kidneys failed, was likely to die after searches for a compatible donor failed. He says he then dreamed that he could save her life by donating his kidney and begged prison authorities and doctors to let him donate his kidney. The pair became friends and later began seeing each other. Hey to each his own but apparently there are good men even on lockdown..
DOG WALKS ITSELF TO HOSPITAL AFTER ACCIDENT
A dog made its own way to a hospital in the US after being hit by a car.The injured black Labrador turned up at Beckley Appalachian Regional Hospital, West Virginia. It hobbled through the sliding glass doors and waited for assistance in the hallway. Hospital workers gave the dog water, called a vet and offered to pay the bill. Dr Roger Ward treated the animal for road burns, scrapes and an infected wound on his leg. Ted Weigel, marketing director at the hospital said: "It's the darndest thing. The dog limped in and laid down where people could see it. "It seemed to know exactly where to go for help. There's no way they were going to put an injured animal back on the street." Dr Ward and hospital officials are now searching for the dog's owner.
WOMAN TRAPS DUMB THIEF BY ASKING FOR DATE
A Chinese woman trapped the man who stole her mobile phone by ringing him up and asking for a date. The mobile phone was in her handbag, which was stolen from the balcony of her Beijing apartment. A few weeks later she rang the number out of curiosity and a man answered, reports the Hong Kong edition of China Daily. She pretended to be a friend of the phone's former owner, and struck up a conversation with the man as if he too was a friend of the owner. She then started exchanging flirtatious text messages with him before eventually suggesting they go on a date. To her delight, the man agreed to let her visit his home, so she called the police who arrested him as he waited for her at a bus stop. He now faces charges of stealing a mobile phone, a handbag and about 100 in cash.
JUELZ SANTANA SLAPS JAY-Z!!
Rumour has it that that Juelz Santana of Diplomats assaulted Jay-Z with an open palmok, a slap. But, you know that Juelz has taken some cues from Camron and been very vocal against Jay-Z, especially when it pertains to the crew not being included on the Roc Da Mic tour. Seems like Juelz wanted to scrap because even though this fight was quickly broken up, he was prepared to knuckle up. This Roc a fella beef is heating up
