Most guys like to play golf, but Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald just took that pastime to another level.

On Saturday, the NFL vet posted this photo of him teeing off on top of the Hanglip Mountain. He was playing the Extreme 19th at the Legend Golf & Safari Resort in South Africa, the highest (1,300 feet) and longest (395 yards) par-3 golf hole in the world.

How do you get to the Extreme 19th? Oh, only by helicopter of course, and it features a green that is shaped like the continent of Africa and surrounded by a bunker.


While Fitzgerald wasn’t too happy about his score on the whole, his “extreme” vacation did end at the golf course. The wide out also bungee jumped from a cliff.

Fitzgerald is definitely in the running for most exciting NFL offseason.

Ludacris Say Pacquiao Has No Shot to Beat Mayweather Mon, 30 Mar 2015 15:48:31 +0000 Luda

As the fight of the century quickly approaches everyone is weighing in on who will come out on top, including rapper Ludacris who is giving the edge to Floyd Mayweather.

While chatting it up on the “Breakfast Club,” DJ Envy asked the ‘Furious 7’ star who he thinks will walk away with the championship belt on May 2nd. Ludacris might have made Mannty’s camp a little nervous as he said he dropped by Mayweather’s training camp in Vegas and saw Floyd training on a whole different level. The Atlanta rapper said:

“I’ve never in my life seen [Floyd] this focused and training this hard.”
Luda, who worked out with Floyd and his uncle Roger in preparation for a movie role a couple of years ago, added that the whole Money Team is going extra hard for this one.”If he usually runs 5 or 6 miles a day, he’s running 8 or 9 miles a day. He knows everything is on the line.”

Let’s see if Luda is willing to put some on money up because talk is cheap.

Sundy Carter Files Police report Against Draya Over ‘Basketball Wives LA’ Beatdown Sat, 28 Mar 2015 15:29:29 +0000 draya-Sundy

Season four of VH1’s “Basketball Wives LA” has been filming for a few months, but behind the scenes per the usual, there’s drama.

We shared with you that season three castmate Sundy Carter wouldn’t be returning for season four. One of the highlights of the last season was Sundy’s unexplained beef with Draya. To the viewers, it was obvious Sundy was trying to keep a relevant storyline, and possibly harbored a bit of jealousy that Draya was able to succeed.

During a group trip to Palm Springs, Sundy had a physical altercation with Draya, and Malaysia Pargo, that left Sundy with a black eye.

The incident took place in July 2013. But Sundy has reportedly recently made the decision to file a police report. Sundy claims that she was assaulted during the fight by her castmates. She claims that she’s discovered she has permanent eye damage from the assault.



Draya is rumored to have quit the show towards the end of filming. She opted out on taking the seasonal “vacation” with the cast to Puerto Rico. She also posted these cryptic messages on Twitter a few weeks back.


So what’s next for Sundy? Besides an appropriate April 1st appearance on “Icons with Ken Collis” to discuss the “brawl,” judging from her Instagram, an exploration into the sex toy business.

These photos aren’t safe for work or tender eyes.

Take A Peek At Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s $9 Million Exotic Car Fleet [Video] Sat, 28 Mar 2015 14:30:48 +0000 Bruce-The-Driver

Take a tour of Floyd Mayweather Jr’s fleet of luxury vehicles, with The Money Team’s Bruce the driver.  Bruce the driver shows off $9 million worth of cars in Floyd’s garage. Some of the vehicles highlighted include; 2 bugatti veyron, – base price of around $1.4 million- a Rolls Royce, Ferrari Enzo, and a tricked out limo.

Bruce the driver says that Floyd’s collection contains over two dozen cars. This is also the part where I tell you that Mayweather doesn’t believe in car notes, or leasing. He pays cash for his cars. That’s why his name is Money.


Bruce is responsible for parking the cars – he has to fit four cars in a three car garage – keeping track of the keys, and maintenance.

Floyd even has a 1996 V12 Mercedes that he still drives. It only has 30,000 miles on it. Floyd listens to cassette tapes while he’s in it. He says it keeps him grounded because he started his boxing career in 1996.

Michael Sam Says ‘Famous’ NFL Players Came Out To Him Sat, 28 Mar 2015 13:38:19 +0000 Michael-Sam-

Michael Sam, the seventh-round pick of the St. Louis Rams in the 2014 NFL draft became the first openly gay NFL player last season. Although Sam never touched the field during a regular season NFL game, and has yet to make an active roster, his decision to come out last year before the draft certainly left an imprint.

While Sam’s football skills have been a question mark for many, Sam continues to speak out for gay athletes. In a recent interview he declared once again, that he knows several gay NFL players, some of whom are stars.

I am not the only gay person in the NFL. I’m just saying there is a lot of us. I respect the players that did reach out to me and had the courage to tell me that they were also gay, but they do not have the same courage as I do to come out before I even played a down in the NFL.

Sam also claims that players came out to him in confidence following last year’s draft, and he made it clear that he will continue to respect their anonymity.

“The players who have reached out to me and told me about their sexual orientation, it just means a lot,” Sam said. “But I will never say anything about who they are, what teams they are [on]. I’m just saying there’s some famous people, and I’m not the only one.”

I say this will all due respect, its time for Michael Sam to just play the game of football. These facts are fairly obvious. I think the biggest thing Michael Sam could do for gay NFL players is to be on the field playing.

I also think saying the other players aren’t courageous because they kept their sexual orientation private is a bit arrogant. Michael was brave but it doesn’t make others cowardice if they made the decision to keep the focus on football.

The former University of Missouri defensive end recently took part in the inaugural NFL Veteran Combine, and the reports indicate that Sam didn’t look to great.

Currently Sam is appearing on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”

The trustee of Smith’s trust, Tim Breedlove, told that the $200 checks were sent out on Monday to about 180 letter winners.

“This was the kind of man that he was,” Breedlove said. “It’s one more example of his thoughtfulness.”

Devon Still Announced Daughter Leah Is Officially In Remission Thu, 26 Mar 2015 17:47:03 +0000 Leah-Devon

The story of Bengals defensive player Devon Still and his daughter Leah’s battle with cancer touched millions of hearts last NFL season. Leah was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma in June of 2014, and was given a 50/50 chance to live. Fast forward to March 2015, Leah is officially in remission.


Still posted this heartfelt message on his Instagram:

June 2, 2014 and March 25, 2015 are days I will remember for the rest of my life. As everyone probably knows, June 2nd was the day doctors walked into the waiting room to tell me my daughter had cancer. It was the most devastating day of my life. March 25th , however, is feeling like the best day of my life. Today we received news from Leah’s oncologist that her cancer, stage four neuroblastoma, is officially in REMISSION! After 296 days of day dreaming about what it would feel like to hear the doctors say my daughter is in remission, I finally know the feeling. Funny thing is there is really no way of describing it because I never knew this feeling existed. When I look at my daughter all I can do is smile and hug her. It was not easy but every day, and every treatment Leah fought like hell and kicked cancers butt! I’m so proud and blessed to call her my daughter. She has made an impact on me and on the world, at the age of four, that I can only wish to make in a lifetime. Thank you to my family and friends for the support through all those tough days. Thank you to everyone who has sent a letter to give Leah and our family motivation to keep fighting, a toy that helped Leah get through her days in the hospital, and more importantly a prayer that helped God hear our cries for healing. Thank you to the doctors at CHOP for putting together the best plan of action for my daughter. Thank you to Child Life members Sarah, Laura, and Lindsey for really turning what could be a scary place into a place where Leah would enjoy going because she knew she would have fun with you guys. Thank you to the Bengals for taking on my situation and standing by me and my family and for helping to raise money to fight pediatric cancer. To every media outlet and persons that helped raise much needed awareness, thank you. Leah is not done with treatments yet. She still needs more to make sure the cancer cells do not return and to build back up her immune system and other damage from the chemo but I know my little warrior will get through it! #FistBump#LeahStrong#BeatCancer#TheFightAgainstChildhoodCancerIsFarFromOver#T

Broke Baller Files: Ex-NBA star Larry Johnson is Bankrupt and Owes A Lot In Child Support Thu, 26 Mar 2015 15:06:28 +0000 New York Knicks

Another day, another professional athlete filing for bankruptcy. 1991 number one NBA draft pick Larry Johnson filed for bankruptcy in California.

The 46-year old who used to play for the Charlotte Hornets and New York Knicks owes $300,000 in debt. Almost half of that debt, $120,000, is from unpaid child support. Johnson has five children by four different women.



In the infamous 1998 Sports Illustrated piece on dead beat athlete dads, Johnson was featured. The piece detailed how his then girlfriend Lauren Tate was allegedly threatened by one of Johnson’s former college teammates to have an abortion, after she refused several of Larry’s requests.

Johnson earned approximately $40 million during his NBA career.

The name is different but the moral to the story is the same, save some money, and treat your sperm like priceless jewels, keep them under lock and key.

In the meantime, lets reflect back to better times for Johnson, when he was the face of Converse and had a popular commercial campaign as Grandmama.
