CIVIL WRITES: NBA Playoffs or Your Girlfriend? Choose one

Every man isn’t fortunate enough to have a woman that’s a sports fan. It’s one thing for your lady to appreciate or simply tolerate sports on television, but when she has no comprehension or respect for it, sports viewing at home becomes less enjoyable. Since we’re in the heat of the NBA Playoffs I figured I’d lend my guys some tips to keep their anti-sports boo absent during their favorite teams’ games.


1. Hypnotize Her Memory

Keeping your baby at bay begins before the actual game day. Preparation and communication is first. You have to brand her subconscience with the fact that you’re looking forward to Game 1 of Celtics vs Cavs. About five days before the game begin mentioning how tough the next few days are gonna be for you (final exams, new construction assignment, deadlines galore etc). Once you’ve explained your crazy week ahead drop it on her: “I can’t wait til it’s all done so I can just sit back and watch that game.” Repeat (very subtly) over the next few days and she should have a complete understanding by tip-off.


2. Let Her Talk

If spending quality time with your significant other is a weak area, fix it now. There’s no way your lady’s gonna be understanding towards your need for sports if you minimize her leisure joys. Like how you can’t tell one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta from the Basketball Wives, she can’t differentiate between Alex Rodriguez batting in a run and the Chicago Bulls going on a run. So the key here is to listen. That morning or night before the game you give her your undivided attention and let her talk until she’s tired, no matter trivial or mind numbing you may think the topic is. You don’t want a woman who feels unheard around your TV.


3. Prevent Her Nagging

By the time your game starts you want her to have as little complaint ammo as possible. That means whatever responsibilities or promises owed to her need to be made good on…well. I’d suggest taking it a step further and getting an early jump on a chore or two. So whether that’s washing the dishes, taking out trash, calling your mother-in-law or choosing a color for those new curtains you could give a shit about, it must be done or your fun will be done.


4. Send Her Packing

Not with luggage, just a pocketbook. Assure your fun by orchestrating hers. To paraphrase the Old Spice guy, send her to that thing she likes. Set up an outing with her and her mother or BFF (women never hang out for a short periods of time). Just make sure you know your woman. If she craves culture there are some awesome plays on and off Broadway this month (I recommend Fela! or Race). If she’s a little more low-brow treat her to the new Tyler Perry script or lunch at that new BBQ spot. Best thing you can do, though, is barter alone time with the game for QT with her later.


5. Sex Her Sleepy

If for some reason the aforementioned tips failed you or she just cant be outdoors game day, your best bet is really really good sex. Wait a couple hours before tip-off and then take her down to Chinatown. Foreplay should be lengthy and intercourse should be athletic. Use whatever assistance you may need to deliver her multiples (Red Bull, Tantric breathing, Gatorade on nightstand), just do it. Oh, and speaking of multiples, (very important) make sure she navigates at least one of her climaxes. You want her as sweaty as you so after the pow she’s knocked out til at least the fourth quarter. And once your soldier’s down don't even think about jumping up. Hold her, from atop so you can exit without waking her. Once you hear her breathing deeply you just won before the game started.

Donnie McClurkin Sent To Hospital Following Car Accident

Gospel legend Donnie McClurkin couldn't be more grateful after surviving a car accident this past Wednesday (Dec. 12).

The "We Fall Down" singer was driving on the road in the earlier part of the day when he passed out and began weaving into traffic. He reportedly struck the middle concrete island.

Following the incident, he posted a selfie of him on the hospital bed in scrubs on Facebook. Along with the photo, he explained that he woke up from the accident with stitches on his left thumb, on top of having a sprained wrist, and hurt knee. His car was also completely totaled.

"I AM ALIVE!!!! Somewhat mangled, stitches on left thumb, sprained wrist, hurt knee, but I’m still here! God and two angels saved my life!," the Grammy-winning artist wrote.

He also mentioned that two "angels" pulled him out the car to safety and medical attention. "I owe them...I am still here by the grace of God! Thank you, Lord...thank you!" he added.

On Friday (Dec. 14), McClurkin posted to his Facebook page again, sharing several photos of his destroyed car. "This is the totaled car that two angels rescued me from ....after passing out while driving I don’t remember most of what happened a day and a half ago...but God," he wrote. "I overrode doctors and sisters advice and flew to KENYA today for ministry Saturday @ TWO RIVERS. and home on this Sunday to celebrate life."

In happier news, McClurkin also took time to plug in his new Christmas single titled "My Favorite Things." Check out McClurkin's posts on social media and stream his new song below.

Nicki Minaj's Boyfriend Kenneth Petty Received 18 Violations During Prison Stint

Nicki Minaj's new boyfriend, Kenneth Petty has a very troubled past.

On Friday (Dec. 14), TMZ revealed court documents disclosing Petty's history of disciplinary actions while he was an inmate in New York for manslaughter from 2006 to 2013.

When he entered the correctional facility, he was reportedly written up for creating a disturbance. Later during his stint, he was hit with a slew of disciplinary actions following a series of violent actions that included fighting, making terroristic threats, and "disobeying a direct order."

In 2009, prison faculty placed him in solitary confinement for four months as part of being reprimanded for nine different violations. Petty lost privileges that included the usage of the inmate telephone service, recreational activity, and the prison canteen.

In addition to his prison violations, Petty is a convicted sex offender. At the age of 16, he was tried as an adult served a four-year sentence for attempted rape of a minor.

Petty, who hails from the same borough as Nicki, Queens, knew the platinum-selling rap star since she was a teenager. They dated for a short period years prior to reuniting.

Minaj posted various photos of her and Petty going on a vacation getaway earlier this month. Sources close to Minaj told the celebrity gossip website that the 36-year-old hip-hop artist is  "happier than she's been in years" with Petty.

Sandy Hook Elementary Evacuates After Bomb Threat On 6th Anniversary Of Mass Shooting

Sandy Hook Elementary School was reportedly forced to evacuate its students and administration on Friday (Dec. 14), after receiving a bomb threat, CNN reports. The incident occurred on the sixth anniversary of the school's tragic mass shooting.

Newtown, Connecticut Police Lt. Aaron Bahamonde stated that the threat didn't appear to be substantial, but they decided to  evacuate the facility as an extra precaution.

Bomb squads reportedly swept the school and surrounding area for explosive devices but did not discover anything on the property. They later concluded that there was no immediate threat. The school administration dismissed students and faculty for the rest of the day however, considering the previous incident.

As previously noted, Sandy Hook endured a horrific mass shooting on Dec. 14, 2012, in which 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children between six and seven years old, as well as six adult, staff members.

Earlier this month, thousands of documents were released about Lanza that revealed his mental state and social status in the years leading up to the shooting.

The shooting is not believed to be in connection to the recent string of bomb scares around the nation that targeted major politicians including the former first families Barack and Michelle Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton.
