Another personality too big for ESPN to truly appreciate has left the building. Unable to come to contract terms (forcing him to take a pay cut), ESPN and Stephen A. Smith severed their business relationship effective May 1. As a fan of SAS, I hope my brother lands somewhere that will let his talent shine.
Nerjyzed Entertainment, Inc. and CEO/Founder Jacqueline Beauchamp have done it again! On November 28, 2008, NEI debuted their 2nd Black College Football Video Game titled “The Doug Williams Experience” (BCFx). It was publicly introduced as part of the 35th Annual State Farm Bayou Classic at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. Celebrity host Stan Verrett (ESPN Sports Anchor) and Grambling State University Alumnus (and Superbowl XXII MVP) Doug Williams were part of the exclusive launch party.
NEI’s first release was only available for the PC which frustrated many gamers. However, with the 2nd release that is no longer a hurdle as it is available for the Xbox 360. Additionally, it is also compatible with the popular Rock Band Drum Set enabling an enhanced experience for the Drumline feature. The game will ship with 35 songs (65 musical), feature a look at the culture of HBCUs themselves and include a Museum section with histories of the schools.
NEI has set a goal of selling 500,000 units and will need your support to help get them there. Be certain to be one of the first to get your game by ordering here.
Update 3.7.09 – We just received an email from Nerjyzed Entertainment’s Promotions and Events Manager in response to all of our reader’s comments about getting this game. NE told us that preorders are available at www.bcfxgame.com and that the release date will soon be announced. Stay tuned.
The NBA season is only 25% complete with many ups and downs left for teams to endure. However, the Boston Celtics have exhibited evey sign of being a legit title contender. After today’s victory against the Toronto Raptors, the Celtics’ winning streak has reached nine games. Boston is now 20-2, which is the best record in the league. It will be interesting to see how many total wins they finish with because the Eastern Conference has a lot of bad teams. In fact, the Celtics are 1 of only 5 teams (15 total) in the Eastern Conference with a winning record.
The 3 Kings of Boston aka Paul “The Truth” Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin “Big Ticket” Garnett have delivered ridiculous early returns. The trio of royalty is averaging 59.1 ppg and are a nightmare matchup for any team. Other coaches are stymied coming up with the appropriate game plan to attack and defense this team.
If you speak with any of the 3 Kings they’d tell you that collectively they’ve all made the impact to turn this Charter NBA team around. If you ask me, it’s because of KG… not only is he so damn good, but he plays out of his mind every minute he’s on the court. That effort and enthusiasm rubs off on everyone in the organization.
Doc Rivers can start drafting his Coach of the Year acceptance speach now because that award is in the bag. Team President Danny Ainge should also be a lock to snag the award for Executive of the Year.
