Van Halen Shafts Memphis: Part One

Van Halen, which recently got Sammy Hagar to come back, is on tour. (Thank goodness they got him to come back and not David Lee Roth again...I liked Roth with Van Halen, and I like Roth as a solo artist, but Sammy with Van Halen is so much better.) They've been on tour for a while, and they have many more shows to go, and they are adding shows on a regular basis, but Memphis is NOT YET ON THE LIST. Memphis, of course, being one of the major cities in the country, and with a BRAND SPANKING NEW arena, is being given the shaft. Instead, they have dates on the tour at...Worcester, MA...Moline, IL...Fargo, ND...Rapid City, SD...I mean, WTF??? Who has even HEARD of these cities??? And just yesterday, they added some more dates, and here they are. Let's see if Memphis is on the list! Milwaukee, WI...Ames, IA(??????????)...Wichita, KS...Fort Wayne, IN...Montreal, QE...and Hamilton, ON. Man, what's going ON??? Anyway, from now on, every time Van Halen adds new dates to the tour, I'm going to report them here...and I want everyone to marvel at how Memphis is getting screwed once again for no reason!!!

Shaq doesn't want Jordan at Age 41 to show him up

I heard last week that Jordan was thinking about going to play for the Miami Heat, which, of course, has Shaq now. Shaq said that Jordan had left him many messages, and he thinks it's because Jordan wants to play with the Heat. But Shaq and the teammates he talked to about it say that they're not interested in Jordan.

Not interested in Jordan?

Jordan, at 41, is better than most players at 31. And probably 21. I always knew that Shaq was a big fat dumb ass, but this just takes the cake. And now I'm going to have to call the teammates he "consulted" with big fat dumb asses, too. And since I don't know which players they are, I'll just throw them all in as being dumb asses.

The Jordan camp is saying that those calls to Shaq are just to try to get Shaq to come to Jordan's basketball camp. Which seems more like the truth to me. I mean, why would Mike want to play on a team with a big fat dumb ass?
