A GUY IN CALIFORNIA TRYS TO SELL A 37-INCH FLAT-SCREEN TV… THAT WAS ACTUALLY AN OVEN DOOR IN DISGUISE!!
I understand that times are tough right now and that we’re all doing what we can to get by, but THIS is just not cool . . .
Last week, 52-year-old Anthony Myles of Richmond, California, was arrested for driving on a suspended license. But the reason Anthony was pulled over in the first place is much more interesting. Get this . . .
It seems Anthony had been hanging out in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart trying to sell a 37-inch flat-screen TV for $100 which is a great price.
Except that it WASN’T actually a flat-screen TV Anthony was trying to sell. It was a GLASS OVEN DOOR that he’d disguised with stickers and other nonsense to make it LOOK like a flat-screen TV.
According to the cop who arrested Anthony, quote, “It was very ingenious. If you were a bargain hunter, you might think, ‘Wow, this is the deal of the day.’”
And that is exactly why you don’t buy electronics, or anything else for that matter, out of the back of a truck, no matter how good the deal sounds.
After the physical altercation last Saturday (August 8th) between Slaughterhouse’s Joe Budden and Raekwon’s Ice Water crew at the Rock the Bells stop in L.A., tension was high between both camps. XXLMag.com has obtained exclusive video footage of Budden’s partner-in-rhyme Royce da 5′9″ speaking to one of The Chef’s associates, that night.
While RTB Founder Chang Weisberg spoke to XXL on Monday and said the two had squashed their beef before performing at RTB’s last stop in San Francisco on Sunday, it seems like the battle is far from over.
Just yesterday Budden released several YouTube videos challenging Rae to a fight. Raekwon has yet to comment on the incident.
So much has been made of the size disparity you would think Floyd is fighting a kneeling midget.
I didn’t realize how big Marquez upper body is compared to Floyd. And check the difference in fist size
MARQUEZ: “I KNOW WHERE HE’S BEEN HURT AND I’M GOING FOR IT!”
Reports out of Mexico City, where five-time World Champion Juan Manuel Marquez is back in training for his scheduled September 19 bout (at MGM Grand in Las Vegas and televised live on HBO Pay-Per-View®) against Floyd Mayweather (Mayweather vs. Marquez “Number One/Numero Uno”), confirm that Marquez is bigger, stronger and punching “to the body” harder than ever as he pushes his training regime to new heights in preparation for his ultimate challenge against Mayweather.
Eyewitnesses say it is evident that not only is Marquez bigger, but his training includes a special focus on body work and technique as he looks to defeat the undefeated Mayweather, a six-time World Champion in five weight divisions.
“I know where he’s been hurt and I’m going for it,” said Marquez. “He is vulnerable now and I will take advantage of his weakness with a body attack that emphasizes two things-the right and the left.”
Another testament to this new resolve are his grueling two-hour runs in the mountains of Nevado de Toluca at a staggering elevation of 13,500 feet.
“The mountain is a magic place and gives me the freedom to visualize the night of the fight and how I am going to beat him,” said Marquez. “It is also building my endurance, making my legs stronger and building muscle across my whole body.”
Marquez has also been adding weight as he works through technique in training.
Marquez finished, “I’ve been working gradually with the extra weight, which is going to be pure muscle and make me stronger than ever by the time I step in the ring September 19. Mayweather is going to be the first one to feel the difference.”
Mayweather Takes IT to MMA and Puts Down Pacman’s Promoter
Floyd Mayweather Jr. might not be talking much about the rib injury that delayed his fight with Juan Manuel Marquez, but that seems like the only topic not up for discussion.
In a recent interview with CBSSports.com, “Pretty Boy Floyd” rapped on Marquez and Pacquiao, and took a monster shot at mixed martial arts, saying that the sport which his Sept. 19 fight vs. Marquez is competing head-to-head against (UFC 103 is in Dallas the same night) is for “beer drinkers, boxing is for everybody.”
“You can’t take my shoes off, and take my shirt off and throw me in a cage. You do that with animals, you don’t do that with humans,” said a bold Mayweather. “It takes true skills to be in the sport of boxing.”
While Mayweather probably should have stopped his brash statements there — considering many of the MMA fans he was offending probably helped him become boxing’s “pay-per-view king” by purchasing his blockbuster fights — he didn’t, saying MMA was created by white fighters who couldn’t cut it in the ring.
“In boxing, we know who’s dominating. Black fighters and Hispanic fighters is dominating in this sport,” Mayweather continued. “And this is not a racial statement but there’s no white fighters in boxing that’s dominating, so they had to go to something else and start something new.”
When the subject turned to a much-anticipated match with Manny Pacquiao (whose fight against Miguel Cotto is in November), Mayweather said the Filipino superstar would have to become his own boss before he could consider a bout.
“Everybody wants to see the Pacquiao fight, but it doesn’t work like that. Pacquiao isn’t his own boss and he’s giving up 27 percent of his money to Bob Arum,” Mayweather said. “Once he becomes his own boss, then we can talk. If he’s not his own boss I ain’t got nothing to say to him.”
But just in case he does, Mayweather says you know where to find him.
“It’s not hard to find me. Everybody know I’m in Las Vegas,” he said. “Just look for the biggest mansion and the prettiest Rolls-Royce — that’s me.”

The former singer from Diddy’s MTV reality show “Making the Band 2″ has once again made the cut but cops say this time Sara Stokes was using a knife to stab her own husband.
We know what you’re thinking, “someone must’ve beat the crap out of this woman” but according to cops, it was the exact opposite.
This bloody mug shot was taken after Stokes was arrested for domestic violence August 2 at their home in Moreno Valley, CA.
According to law enforcement sources, Sara stormed out of the house after arguing with husband Tony she tripped, fell down and accused him of doing it.
We’re told Sara who hurt her head in the fall grabbed a knife and stabbed Tony in the arm while their 3 kids watched.
Paramedics and cops came and Stokes was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence. The D.A. is deciding whether to charge her.
Sara’s lawyer, Eric Kayira, tells us, “Sara and Tony have a very passionate and loving relationship that on August 2, while having an evening of fun, she slipped and fell, hitting her head heavily on the ground and somehow in the process of helping her Tony got injured.”
