NO FELONY CHARGES FOR DIDDY IN THE UCLA FOOTBALL ALTERCATION

Hard 2 Knock Shoppe

LOS ANGELES, CA - FEBRUARY 20:  Rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs arrives to the T-Mobile Magenta Carpet at the 2011 NBA All-Star Game on February 20, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.  (Photo by Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images)

Diddy dodged the bullet in his recent assault arrest, after the Los Angeles D.A. rejected the case, reports TMZ.

The hip-hop mogul was arrested in late June and charged with felony assault, after an altercation with a UCLA football coach.

Reports said Diddy confronted an assistant coach at UCLA, when he was screaming at his son Justin on the field. Things became physical… and he was later arrested.

However, the D.A. has dismissed the case, and Diddy will no longer face the felony charge.

Now the City Attorney must decide if it warrants prosecution for a lesser offense, like misdemeanor assault.

Stay tuned…

Serena Williams Pulls Out A Win To Face Sister Venus At Wimbledon

Black America Web

LONDON (AP) — Twice, Serena Williams stood merely two points from a loss at Wimbledon against a British opponent buoyed by a roaring, flag-waving Centre Court crowd.

Twice, Williams was oh-so-close to the end of her bid for a fourth consecutive major title — and for the third leg of a calendar-year Grand Slam.

And twice, pushed to the precipice, Williams regrouped, resisted and wound up winning, as she so often does.

Stomping her foot after misses, alternately screaming in delight or despair, even wagging her finger at fans who booed her, the No. 1-seeded Williams overcame a surprisingly staunch challenge from 59th-ranked Heather Watson and emerged with a 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 victory in the third round Friday.

“I honestly didn’t think I was going to win,” said Williams, who trailed 3-0 and 5-4 in the final set. “How I pulled through, I really don’t know.”

Her 24th victory in…

The Serena Williams vs Heather Watson thriller

Talking Stuff

I watched an amazing tennis match today between Serena Williams and Heather Watson.  It was number 1 vs number 59.

SerenaWilliams_HeatherWatson

I was on pins and needles watching that match.  Great Britain’s Heather Watson had Serena’s number for a while and that made me very nervous.  At times I was wondering what is going on with Serena.  Does she want to win this?  In the third set Serena came back and won 6-2, 4-6, 7-5.

This match nearly gave me a heart attack but it was definitely a thriller.  There were times when I was tempted to change the channel but I refused to touch the remote control, lol.

British number one Heather Watson gave top seed Serena Williams a huge scare before losing a thrilling third-round match at Wimbledon.

The 23-year-old battled back from a set down, winning six straight games from 3-3 in the second set.

Watson served for…

Michael Oher Says “The Blindside” Movie Hurt His NFL Career

It hurt US to watch that movie, can’t imagine what Michael Oher has been going through as the subject of it.

Via HuffingtonPost

The 2009 “based on a true story” film “The Blind Side” was a massive box office hit, beloved by both critics and the viewing public. The movie raked in $300 million, earned an Oscar nod for best picture, and clinched Sandra Bullock, who starred in the film, an Academy Award and a Golden Globe.

But there’s at least one person out there who’s not a big fan of the movie: Michael Oher, the football player whose life the film is based on.

Oher, who currently plays left tackle for the Carolina Panthers, told ESPN.com’sid Newton this week that the film — which details his journey from a homeless teen to a first-round NFL draft pick — has…
