Lesson to be learned. Never talk smack to a man wearing a fanny pack.

LZ, got a documentary recommendation for you if you haven't seen it (it's not new). "Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea." Strange little flick about California's largest lake that almost no one knows about.

The guy is an old racist. The video omits the preceding events, which starts with them both at the back of the bus where the old bearded guy taunted and baited the kid. The old guy moved to the front of the bus, and the kid eventually followed him.

"The guy is an old racist. The video omits the preceding events, which starts with them both at the back of the bus where the old bearded guy taunted and baited the kid. The old guy moved to the front of the bus, and the kid eventually followed him."

The video doesn't show how it started. The "amberlamps" kid said something to the old man when he first got on the bus, prompting the old man to follow the kid to the back. That's when the girls got their cameras out.

There's clearly something not right with this old man, but to put all the blame on him is ridiculous...Unfortunately racism can go both ways...

To be completely fair, we don't know how this whole thing started. The girl who taped it said the white guy started it, but while she tries to sound mature and impartial during her interview, she is clearly not either of those things in the video as she cheers the black guy on. According to the white guy, he was just talking to someone about getting his shoes shined for him mom's funeral when the black guy overheard and took offense to something.

Probably the biggest misconception is the black guy wasn't some kid or teenager. He's probably well into his thirties. He's not some young punk disrespecting his elders, he's just some oldhead with no sense.

Kiper keeps putting Brain Price with the Texans. Thoughts?

I think it is a little early at 20, but the more I see of Price at NT rather than 3-technique, the more I like of him. I would rather see him a little later than 20 though.

this is the funniest thing i have ever seen.
bring amber lamps. lol.
how does irish mike know what went down before the girl got the camera out? was he on the bus?
the race card is wearing thin. just stop it you clown. it was obvious the guy was avoiding a confrontation.

Posted by: lev at February 21, 2010 04:22 PM

The only indication we have of how it started comes from the camera girl. She's also shouting racist remarks and eventually steals the guys bag. I don't think her account of how it started can be taken seriously. I'm sure they both said something stupid and didn't want to back down.

Regardless...... BRING DA AMBERLAMPS!!!!!!!!!

2x Rods LZ

Nice vid. Got to discover Thomas Bruso this afternoon.

The trade though. What an amazing 11th hour result. I feel bad for McGrady. I think getting to watch him fulfill his talent here in Houston would have been amazing, but unfortunately it wasn't meant to happen.

Now we just have to hope for the best with this current group. And that is where I have a couple of questions. First, how long do you think the K-Mart/Yao window is? Second, with the current team, baring any Free Agent acquisitions, which Rockets are going to be on next years team?

That dude got it handed to him, i saw the video and the girls say " What the F***" when the old man starts putting on a beat down, I thought that was hilarious, " What the F***" was the reaction by everybody when an old white man beats down a young man like that... Great stuff lance.

Epic video...

What did you think of UFC 110. It was so awesome to see the Axe murderer beat on Bisping, almost choking him out and almost knocking him the F out. And what about Cain? That is the definition of a beast. There is no doubt in my mind that he can and will beat Brock.

I loved watching Silva crush Bisping as well. I was very impressed with the striking of Cain, but I wonder if he has the length to keep Brock Lesnar off of him if Lesnar tries to get him on the ground and pound him. Velasquez might be the most well-rounded/dangerous HW in the UFC right now. CroCop looked good, but his competition wasn't good at all. Running away from CroCop and not attacking him will get you a butt kicking.
