JJ Watt of the Houston Texans is without a doubt one of the most feared players currently playing in the NFL. The reigning Defensive Player Of The Year caused problems for every offense he faced off against. Yesterday, Watt was in attendance for Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI and was even present on stage while his good friend Zac Brown was performing. During the set, a fan decided to crash the stage and was immediately laid out by Watt with a spear tackle that would make Goldberg of WCW proud.
Interestingly enough, since the clip has gone viral. Many have begun to ponder the legitimacy of the incident. Calling it a staged hoax. With the way the gentleman was flailing his arms, and the fact that he was wearing an Alabama t-shirt while in Wisconsin, Watt’s alma mater and the team Bama will be facing off against in the 2015 season opener, there might be some truth to that. Does not make it any less funny. Check out the clip below.

This week, I’m bumpin Bronx Native, Jon. O. A cool Puerto Rock from Soundview Projects who strives for what he believes in…Hip-Hop. Through his music you’ll hear his life, surroundings, and overall, things that have impacted him.
Your environment makes you strong, and your beliefs make you stronger.
On “Off The Roof”, Jon O., alongside, Yabbosama, sample a classic record by Eric B . & Rakim. I don’t know many emcees brave enough to go that route, but I’m not mad at it. They came off with good delivery, dope rhymes, and the sample flip sounds dope on the production by Amsterdamdidit. All around, I give it a thumbs up.
Many legends came from the same place so we surely look forward to seeing what more you bring to the game.
Listen to the track below and look out for Branded A Fool, coming soon!

As unlikely as it may seem, the Haitian team in the the Street Hockey World tournament has bested all of their competitors, which include victories over Armenia and France, to win the 2015 Championship Trophy. As much as we would like to make comparisons to the classic film Cool Runnings, which comically showcased winter olympic competitors from the caribbean island of Jamaica, this scenario is just a tad bit different. Though it is always unlikely for any caribbean island to be dominant in hockey, seeing as how the premiere sports there are soccer, baseball and basketball, the Haitian hockey team was comprised of of Haitian-Canadians. Some of whom have never traveled to the country.
With that said, that fact has done nothing to quell the excitement surrounding this victory for the team members and their supporters. The International Street and Ball Hockey Federation had to slightly bend the rules in order to allow Haitians who were not born in the country to participate. This move allowed the team to have some ringers on their squad such as team captains Ainslie Bien-Aimé, who played on Canada’s 2007 gold medal team and Georges Laraque, who had previously played in the NHL.
Most of the guys were always looking for something to give back to the country and the only thing we could do was send money or praise to our cousins or whatever. But when this opportunity came up in January, I can tell you that 75 guys were ready for war.
