Undefeated LA 2009 Western Conference Champs Release

Oth­er than this humon­gous Lak­ers ban­ner out­side of Sta­ples Cen­ter, there’s been a lot of exment in the air to get this year’s NBA Finals on its way. To add to it, Unde­feat­ed LA will be releas­ing some merch in sup­port of the Lak­ers’ quest for their 15th NBA Cham­pi­onship. Though it sucks that the release won’t be till this upcom­ing Sat­ur­day, June 6th, its still in time for the sec­ond home game on Sun­day, June 7th.

Pacquiao vs. Hatton Candid Reaction

Did you see that fight this past Sat­ur­day night? That was some crazy car­nage com­ing from a dude who smiles right before he’s about to enter the ring and fight some­one who is bad ass at the weight they’re fight­ing in. I’m talk­ing about the Man­ny “Pac­man” Pac­quiao vs. Ricky “Hit­man” Hat­ton fight. I think it was dubbed “The Bat­tle of East and West”. Don’t know if that’s impor­tant or not, but these two are great fight­ers to each in their own right.

Any­ways, I watched the fight at a friend’s Bach­e­lor’s Par­ty down in SoCal. I was ner­vous right to the first punch. Then Pac­man start­ed set­ting up his com­bos. Next thing you know, he chalks up two knock-downs in the first round.

WTF?!?! I did­n’t know it was going to be this damn excit­ing, and fast”. I said to myself. So I quick­ly grabbed my point-and-shoot cam­era, sneaked it in on a place below the TV, and set it on to record video… hop­ing to get a can­did of every­one’s reac­tion to the rest of the fight.

Lo and behold—it turned out to be a reward­ing, stu­pen­dous and hilar­i­ous idea. They total­ly were busy cel­e­brat­ing the first round, and did­n’t notice it at all. Fun­ny-ass-hell.

Any­ways, I hope you like it!

A decade before Rosa Parks and the Mont­gomery bus boy­cott, two decades before Dr. Mar­tin Luther King Jr. pro­claimed “I Have a Dream,” a sig­na­ture event in the strug­gle for racial equal­i­ty unfold­ed far from Dix­ie.

On the after­noon of April 15, 1947, Jack­ie Robin­son emerged as an inspir­ing fig­ure in the civ­il rights move­ment when he became the first black man to play major league base­ball in the 20th cen­tu­ry, mak­ing his debut with the Brook­lyn Dodgers against the Boston Braves at Ebbets Field.

Robin­son’s tri­umphs in the face of big­otry evoked a sense of pride among black peo­ple and forced the rest of Amer­i­ca to con­sid­er anew the doc­trine of white suprema­cy.
