No, I’m Not Stalking Pamela Anderson

I just happen to follow her around. Capiche? So let me review the quick history between myself and the future ex. I posted a story on AOL’s FanHouse a few weeks ago about Pam’s involvement with the Pepperdine baseball team. In the headline I even made a reference to her being like their team mom. Then oddly enough, I ran into her on Monday since she happened to be a guest on a radio show where I work. I mentioned that I did a story on her recently, and how popular it became, she was intrigued, and I met her Charger long-snapping boyfriend David Binn, yadayadayada. And then as she was getting ready to roll, she mentioned she would be at Pepperdine’s baseball game on Wednesday. Well far be it from me to let my readers down on a promise — I had to show up. And show up I did.

In the middle of the 5th inning — as is typical LA fashion. And my goodness, I can’t say enough about the venue; Pepperdine’s campus is gorgeous, complete with a view of the nearby Pacific Ocean past the left field wall. I can’t imagine a more spectacular place to play baseball this side of Fenway. And walking up the first base line to find a seat, who do I see sitting in the first row behind the home team’s dugout? None other than Pamela of course.

She was just like a team mom — cheering for all the players, yelling out for them using their first names like they were her sons. She had to have been pleased too; Pepperdine had a no-hitter going when I arrived. But that no-no was short-lived as some Cal. State Fullerton chump laid one down and reached base when nobody covered first in the top of the 6th. Then midway through the seventh, Anderson got up to take a walk around campus, and when she came back, her sons had their gloves on and were playing catch to the side of the field.

Pepperdine gave up a few runs in the ninth, but closed things out for a 7-2 win. And right at the last out, I went over to approach Pam, reminding her that I had seen her on Monday. She recognized the face, forgot the name, but knew I had posted the story about her at the FanHouse. She proceeded to treat me like I was a first-rate guest, introducing me to all the coaches, talking baseball, talking about her kids, and talking about some of the sporting events she had been to recently. I was completely enthralled.

After a lengthy (and albeit surreal) conversation, I decided it was best to head home before traffic became a bitch. But let me tell you, if you’re in the LA area and haven’t made your way out to Pepperdine for a baseball game — you should. And if you’re not in the LA area but happen to get here some day, work it into your plans somehow. Besides enjoying the awesome Malibu location, you’ll also meet one of the best college baseball fans in the country, Pamela Anderson.

My Encounter with Pamela Anderson

So one of the cool things about working for the Premiere Radio Networks in Los Angeles is getting to see some of the guests that show up around the building. One such guest was none other than The Pamela Anderson, who was appearing on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory to talk about her involvement in PETA on Monday night.

And damn, let me tell you, at 39 years old, she still looks spectacular. Matter of fact, imagine a blond Jessica Rabbit, and that’s Pamela Anderson. Her body is freaky — cartoon-like. She has an amazingly tiny waist, beautiful face, and well, damn, I don’t need to tell you the rest, you already know.

So of course I had to get a couple of words in with the fine lady, namely, about her involvement with the Pepperdine baseball team, and how she’s responsible for my short-lived internet fame. I don’t think any of that mattered to her. Actually, I know none of that mattered to her. But she still was nice and kind enough to indulge me. She mentioned how happy she was that there was a positive article written about her and her involvement in the community, not unlike her support of the gymnast Mohini. Pam seemed genuinely generous (how’s that for alliteration and assonance!), talking about how she had the Pepperdine team over for a party — wow. She was truly awesome, with her demeanor as sweet as her looks.

She was also there all cuddly with a dude, who introduced himself as David, and said he was the long snapper for the Chargers. With the slightest bit of research, I found out that it was David Binn, a man to whom Pamela has been romantically linked in the past. He was equally nice and chill as Pamela, and the two seemed quite happy together. Before sledding off in their rig for the night, I asked if I could swing an interview for this here site. The response: sure, I’ll be at the Pepperdine game on Wednesday.

My silent answer: so will I.

UPDATE: Via The Feed, the NY Daily News says Binn is Anderson’s boyfriend

Why you Shouldn’t Share an Email Account with the Wife

Aside from the fact that she then receives the dirty little emails…she also gets to receive….your dirty little emails. Someone please pass this along to Rich Eisen who shared his email address with his wife and missed out on some hot action. Check it out, Philly TV reporter Alycia Lane sent over some suggestive photos to Rich Eisen in an email along with the message that she’d be in LA sometime soon and would love to meet up with him. Only problem, wife Suzy Shuster got her intercept on:

A seething Shuster wrote: “Boy, do you look amazing in a bikini . . . congrats! Whatever you’re doing, (Pilates? yoga?) keep doing it – it’s working for you. Anyway, sorry but those seven e-mails you sent to my husband, Rich, well, oops, they came to the e-mail address we both use from time to time, but no worries, I’ll forward the beach shots as well as the ones of you dancing with your friends on to his main address. Do you have it?”

She then provides her hubby’s private e-mail, “since you surely are trying so hard to get his attention. I mean, what better way to get a guy’s attention than with skin! Best – Suzy Shuster Eisen”

Man, so you telling me Rich didn’t even get to check out the pics? Well that sucks. Men, another reason to make sure you have a separate email account from the wife. And if you’re sharing an account with her, it’s probably time to start picking out your own clothes too.

Brady Quinn Blown Off for a Kiss by Lindy Slinger (Video)

Brady Quinn may have slid to 22nd overall in the NFL draft, but that may not have been his biggest embarrassment of the weekend. Actually, being blown off for a kiss by girlfriend Lindy Slinger may have been worse.

The woman in question is Quinn’s girlfriend, and Miami of Ohio soccer player, Lindy Slinger. She and Brady have been dating for quite some time.

“I’ve been in a long-term relationship now for a good amount of time,” he told Fox Sports Radio. “I really don’t look anywhere else. She’s definitely a girl who I look to be with in the future, here sometime in the next couple years. She’s a great girl — I’ve been fortunate to find her at such a young age.”

Congratulations to the young couple as they appear to have found love at such an early age, but we’d like to see more support from a girlfriend during a difficult time for her loved one.

UPDATE: Brady Quinn is now dating Alicia Sacramone. Maybe the blown off kiss had something to do with it.

Jason Whitlock a Rap Producer?

In a November ’06 column on AOL Sports, Jason Whitlock says he has a major love-hate relationship with rap music. My problem is that I’m a newer reader of his, so I don’t know all the background on his relationship with rap music. What I do know is that Whitlock called out the hip hop culture as a societal problem in response to the Don Imus remarks. That’s why I find Jason Whitlock’s participation in producing a new game day song for the Kansas City Chiefs entitled “It’s Now on ’07,” quite curious.

As YOU BEEN BLINDED points out, some of the participants in the song include Rich The Factor, Bacari, Big Scoob, T-Will, Tech N9ne and Zig. All you have to do is take a look at the lyrics for some of these performers’ songs to get an understanding of their music. Just check out Tech N9ne’s song, Absolute Power

we Kansas City players
and we bout sold game,
we make it so that Tech N9ne is a household name
How many points you got? I got 50
here’s a question to the censorship committee
who’s the biggest gangs of niggas in the city,
my villains are Gritty,
Big Scoob, Txx Will, Bakarii,
rest in peace Short Nitty

But this is the same Tech N9ne to whom Whitlock gave a shout out in a column at AOL Sports. What gives? Does this make Whitlock a hypocrite? Has he changed his viewpoints and stances since producing the song? Does he no longer associate with some of those rappers? These are all questions I surely would like answered considering Whitlock attributed a lot of society’s problems to the hip hop culture. Or maybe we should just give him a break because as he says, “he has a major love-hate relationship with rap music.”

What Are Greg Oden and Mike Conley Sr. Hiding?

First the story comes out on Friday evening that the father of Ohio St. center, Greg Oden, says his son will enter the NBA draft. And become one of the top two picks. And go on to make millions of dollars. And go on to make All-Star games and win championships. And eventually be enshrined in the Hall of Fame. OK, so I’m getting ahead of myself, but you can’t deny that most fans and experts aren’t thinking that, right? So why does the story now come out that Mike Conley Sr., who will represent Oden, says Greg won’t declare his draft plans just yet.

Ohhhh, I see. Conley Sr. was upset that Papa Oden had leaked the news. How dare him get the story everyone knows the answer to out there before Conley Sr. was ready to announce it! Like it’s going to be some sort of big shock. But if the news were leaked wouldn’t it have ruined the spotlight for the nationally telecast of Oden’s announcement?

It’s also been suggested to me by my Dad that the Oden camp could be taking extra special care into negotiating and investigating. For instance, if they get the sense that most of the teams that could wind up picking first would take Kevin Durant, maybe it would be reason for Greg to return to school.

While that certainly makes sense, I really can’t see Greg Oden going back to Ohio St. for another full year of classes and games just because he might be the second overall pick. How would that be for irony! A guy who would’ve been the first overall pick coming out of high school winds up staying not one, but TWO years in college?! That’s insane.

Jason Whitlock Is the Balls

Let me get something out of the way here. In no way do I claim to be a professional writer on this site. I like to use it as a forum to voice my opinions, and to share anything around the internet I find interesting. Additionally, I don’t like to have this site clouded by issues that have taken mainstream media by stranglehold. What I mean is this — Don Imus’ comments, and the Duke Lacrosse scandal are more about ideological, political, and ethical beliefs, than they are about sports, even though the sports media has become consumed by such issues. That’s why I used a video created by someone else to share my thoughts on the Duke players being exonerated.

That’s also why I will do the same with the Imus case — which you may have noted has been noticeably missing from this site. Jason Whitlock writes professionally for the Kansas City Star and AOL Sports. He has captured my feelings on the issue more eloquently and persuasively than I possibly could have. That’s why I will link to his column, and show you a video interview of his thoughts, both courtesy the awesomeness that is The Big Lead.

Using the words Don Imus used is completely inappropriate. But the problem is, it’s not just Imus. Using those terms in any context is purely wrong. I don’t care if it’s rap music, I don’t care if it’s in a comedy sketch, any time those words are used, it perpetuates more negative thought. That’s what needs to be attacked, not Imus.
