Lil Wayne Launches Sports Blog From Prison
Even in prison, Lil Wayne manages to be prolific.
The incarcerated rapper posted his first sports column on his website, Weezy Thanx You, in a section called Tune’s Sports Corner. Wayne is no stranger to sports blogging, as he used to have a weekly blog on ESPN and has appeared on such ESPN shows as Around The Horn and Rome Is Burning.
Wayne generally gave smart commentary, writing that the Eagles screwed up in their handling of Donovan McNabb, and that backups Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick are no replacement for the veteran QB.
Weezy writes, “I think [the trade] will be a great thing for all involved, except the Eagles…the Eagles don’t have sufficient QB to fufill the role. I mean the 2nd round pick, Kevin Kolb, and Michael Vick doesn’t exactly fit the bill if you ask me. Philly is a hard place to play and an even harder place to play for. My sympathy gees out to Kolb and Vick, who will be expected to do nothing other than win.”
Wayne also lavished praise on McNabb, saying that he will do well under the reign of Mike Shanahan and that he is “a post-season shoe-in.”
The rapper also posted his top 5 NFL draft picks, with his number one choice being a tie between Ndamukong Suh and Jimmy Clausen. –Jonathan Eiseman
