Bedroom games are fine … but I need a woman who won’t play with my heart.  After years in the military, I’ve faced down a lot of things, and there’s not much I shy away from. Except relationships. Because when you catch your wife in bed with another man, that tends to sour even the most hardened man against women. When I was hired to keep surveillance on a woman with a checkered past, I went into the job anticipating the worst. But what I found was a woman who turned my head. Who made my blood heat and my body burn. A woman who made me feel alive again.  A woman who was nothing like what I expected, but everything I wanted. A woman who, it turned out, needed my protection.  And wanted my touch. And as the world fell out from under us, and everything I thought I knew shifted, there was only one reality I could hold onto—that the more I got to know her, the more I wanted her.  But if I’m going to make her mine, I’ll have to not only keep her safe, I’ll have to prove to her that I’ve conquered my own fears and doubts. That I’m done looking into the past, and that all I want is a future—with her.

Ex-NBA Player Glen “Big Baby” Davis Arrested For Selling Hella Weed

San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Five

Source: Stephen Dunn / Getty

Ex-NBA player Glen “Big Baby” Davis was arrested for allegedly selling a gang of weed out of a hotel room. The former NBA champion got popped at a Hampton Inn in Maryland. 

Per ABC Baltimore, Big Baby actually got pinched last month and that was the start of the struggle.

According to court records, the hotel owner smelled marijuana coming from Davis’ room on February 7th.

When the owner knocked on room 208, someone inside the room told him to “F*@# off!”

Aberdeen police then responded to the hotel and Davis gave signed consent to search his room

“They recovered 126 grams of marijuana,” said Aberdeen Police Lieutenant William Reiber, “In addition to that there was a brief case that contained 92,164 dollars of U.S. currency along with a ledger that contained language which is consistent with someone involved in the sale and distribution of narcotics.”

The ledger was of names of people of who owed money along with baggies for individual packaging of a quarter pound of marijuana.

The strains were called “Sour D” and “Berry,” all from a Los Angeles wholesaler court records show Davis told police he was in business with.

Davis was eventually charged with seven counts of drug possession and distribution, weeks later.

Big Baby says he is innocent and is due back in court next month. His last NBA action was for the Los Angeles Clippers in 2015.

Since the news is out, Big Baby posted a response. See on the flip (Note: It didn’t really help his cause). But the Popeye’s did look delicious.

David Denson Becomes First Openly Gay Player On MLB-Affiliated Team

MILWAUKEE — A Milwaukee Brewers minor leaguer has become the first openly gay player on a team affiliated with Major League Baseball.

David Denson, with the help of former major leaguer Billy Bean, reached out to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel to tell his story.

The 20-year-old first baseman plays for the Helena Brewers in the rookie Pioneer League. Bean, MLB’s first Ambassador for Inclusion, disclosed he is gay after his playing career.

“Talking with my teammates, they gave me the confidence I needed, coming out to them,” Denson told the newspaper. “They said, “You’re still our teammate. You’re still our brother. We kind of had an idea, but your sexuality has nothing to do with your ability. You’re still a ballplayer at the end of the day. We don’t treat you any different. We’ve got your back.’

“That was a giant relief for me,” he added. “I never wanted to feel like I was forcing it on them. It just happened. The outcome was amazing. It was nice to know my teammates see me for who I am, not my sexuality.”

On Sunday, the Brewers lauded Denson as a “highly respected member” of their family and “a very courageous young man.”

General manager Doug Melvin said in the statement: “Our goal for David is to help develop him into a major league player, just as it is for any player in our system, and we will continue to support him in every way as he chases that dream.”

Added star outfielder Ryan Braun: “Hopefully, everybody is at a point where we can just be supportive, not just understanding, but accepting and supportive of him and his situation.”

MLB said it backs Denson’s decision “to share his personal story and wishes him continued success with his goal of becoming a major leaguer.” MLB added that is “very proud” of the Brewers organization and this disclosure represents a “tremendous example of baseball’s desire to give every player the opportunity to play at their very best.”

In June, pitcher Sean Conroy of the Sonoma Stompers of the independent Pacific Association revealed he is gay. The Pacific Association is not affiliated with MLB. Denson’s coming out follows similar disclosures of late across sports: Michael Sam (NFL draftee); Jason Collins (NBA); Derrick Gordon and Edward Sarafin (NCAA basketball, football) and Dale Scott (major league umpire).

Denson was selected by the Brewers in the 15th round in 2013 after playing for South Hills High School in West Covina, California. He spent last season with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in the Class A Midwest League, hitting .243 with four homers and 29 RBIs in 68 games. He started this season with Wisconsin, hitting .195 with one homer and eight RBIs in 24 games before being sent to Helena. In 42 games with the Montana team, he’s hitting .245 with four homers and 18 RBIs.

On Saturday night in a doubleheader at Idaho Falls, Denson was 1 for 3 in a 6-1, seven-inning loss and 0 for 5 with an RBI in an 8-7 loss in nine innings.

“It’s a lot to take in right now,” Denson told the Idaho Falls Post-Register. “I’m a ballplayer first. That’s what I’m focusing on.”

Sports News in Brief: Study: Human Reaction Time Now Best Measured By How Long It Takes To Pause ESPN Video Player

STANFORD, CA— Providing new insight into the inner workings of the central nervous system, a study published Friday by researchers at Stanford University revealed that human reaction time is now most accurately measured by the speed at which a person is able to pause a video on ESPN.com. “The data clearly indicates that one’s ability to respond to sensory stimuli is best represented by the number of milliseconds that pass between seeing the video player load at the top of an ESPN article, hovering the cursor over it to reveal the control bar, and then hitting the pause button,” said Stanford neurologist Dana Frankel, adding that upon processing the audiovisual prompt, the brain will immediately begin firing neurons that signal the fingers to stop the video before sounds of a pre-roll commercial begin playing. “We’ve also found that we are able to actually improve upon this reflex …

First Openly Gay NFL Player Michael Sam To ‘Step Away’ From Football

By Eric M. Johnson

Aug 14 (Reuters) – Michael Sam, who last year became the first openly gay player drafted by a National Football League team, said on Friday he was stepping away from football, citing concerns over his mental health.

The Canadian Football League’s Montreal Alouettes, with whom he signed a contract in May, said on its team website that Sam had left the team for personal reasons and as a result had been placed on the team’s suspended list.

“The last 12 months have been very difficult for me, to the point where I became concerned with my mental health,” Sam wrote on Twitter. “Because of this I am going to step away from the game at this time.”

 

 

“Thank you all for your understanding and support,” he added.

Sam also thanked the Alouettes, and said he hoped to be back on the field soon. The defensive lineman was suspended by the Alouettes in June after he left the team’s training camp for unexplained personal reasons.

The National Football League’s St. Louis Rams selected Sam in the seventh round of the 2014 draft but waived him in the final round of cuts. He was picked up by the Dallas Cowboys but they released him from their practice squad in October.

Sam was the Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Year as a senior at the University of Missouri before graduating in December 2013.

The following February, before the NFL Draft, he announced he was gay.

ESPN reported that Sam agreed to a two-year deal with the Alouettes this summer. It also reported that he sat out the team’s first five games and that he failed to record a tackle during his team debut on August 7.

Sam’s supporters have said that his sexuality is irrelevant to his performance and have dismissed suggestions that an openly gay player would be a distraction for a professional football team. (Reporting by Eric M. Johnson in Seattle; Editing by Will Dunham and Ken Wills)

#ChristianTaylor: Unarmed Black College Football Player Killed By Police In Alleged Robbery

It’s a travesty that Black Lives Matter is such a booming movement because that means African-Americans are still losing their lives when the situation didn’t call for it.

Nineteen-year-old Angelo State University football player Christian Taylor was recently killed by officers responding to burglary alarm at a Arlington, TX dealership late last night, August 6.

He was unarmed at the time of his death.

Reports Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

Officers were dispatched to a burglary in progress about 1 a.m. at the Classic Buick GMC dealership on the Interstate 20 service road, east of Collins Street, said Sgt. Paul Rodriguez, a police spokesman.

Officer Brad Miller Christian Taylor was a defensive back at Angelo State University. Officer Brad Miller Christian Taylor was a defensive back at Angelo State University.

A security company had called 911 after observing the suspect on camera outside the business.

Rodriguez said police arrived to find that the suspect had used a vehicle to crash into the showroom through the dealership’s front glass.

The officers went and confronted him. There was an altercation. An officer discharged his weapon and struck the suspect,” Rodriguez said.

The suspect, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was not armed with a weapon, Rodriguez said.

The officer, identified by the department as 49-year-old Brad Miller, had just graduated from the police academy in March. He has been in field training and working under the supervision of a police training officer, the department said.

Clyde Fuller, Taylor’s great uncle, described his great nephew as a good man and talented football player who was about to return to college. He said he has many unanswered questions and doesn’t believe Taylor was burglarizing the dealership as police suspected.

“He was a good kid. I don’t see him stealing no car or nothing like that,” Fuller said.

“I think something is going on that somebody is lying about,” Fuller said. “…They say he’s burglarizing the place by running up in there? Nuh-uh. Something doesn’t sound right.”

Rodriguez said the department is in the process of implementing a pilot program for use of body cameras by officers but that no such cameras are currently in use.

So many questions naturally remain. If Taylor was unarmed, where did the guns come into play for the responding officers to use? Additionally, what is the success rate for getting away with robbery when you crash your vehicle into the building? Was he supposed to drive both cars by himself or was their an accomplice on standby?

WNBA’s Brittney Griner Files To Annul Marriage To Fellow WNBA Player

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Brittney Griner filed for an annulment with Glory Johnson-Griner on Friday, a day after Johnson-Griner announced she’s pregnant and a month after the two WNBA players married.

“Last Wednesday, Glory and I agreed to either legally separate, get divorced, or annul our marriage, Griner said in a statement. “I can confirm that today I filed for an annulment. In the week prior to the wedding, I attempted to postpone the wedding several times until I completed counseling, but I still went through with it. I now realize that was a mistake.” Johnson’s agent, D.J. Fisher, said in a statement that Johnson-Griner was unaware of the filing and was “extremely hurt and blindsided” by Griner’s actions.

“She loves Brittney and made a huge sacrifice to carry a child, put her career on hold, invest in their relationship and their future,” Fisher said.

Griner, the 6-foot-8 Phoenix Mercury star, married Johnson-Griner on May 9, three weeks after they were arrested on domestic violence charges for a fight at their home in suburban Phoenix. Both players were suspended seven games after their arrests and Griner agreed to undergo 26 weeks of domestic violence counseling as part of a plea agreement.

Both players apologized and said they worked out their differences, saying they were happy about the marriage. Johnson-Griner, a two-time All-Star with the Tulsa Shock, announced on Instagram on Thursday that she was pregnant and would miss the WNBA season.

Fisher said Johnson-Griner was in it for the long haul.

“She knows how important marriage is, and made a lifetime commitment and decision to spend the rest of her life with Brittney,” Fisher said.

Earlier Friday, a post on Johnson-Griner’s Instagram account showed a photo of Griner and a message about seeing her again: “One day until I’m reunited with my Wife @brittneygriner . . . This is about to be one CRAZY SUMMER!!!”

Her tune changed later in the day.

“She wishes to ask for privacy at this time as they work through these trials and tribulations,” Fisher said. “She asks her fans for all their love, support and prayers during this trying time.”

Johnson-Griner’s suspension will not start until the 2016 season because she will not play this season.

Griner was the WNBA’s defensive player of the year and helped the Mercury win the league championship last season.

The WNBA season started Friday night.

Soccer Player Hit By One Of The Greatest Paper Airplane Tosses Of All Time (VIDEO)

By Jose Martinez, Complex Sports

On Friday, Peru and England squared off in a tune-up match and the star of the night was a paper airplane. We’re not kidding.

As you can see in the above video, one fan decided to toss a pretty large paper airplane onto the pitch in the middle of the game. But what no one, including the individual throwing the object, could’ve ever foreseen was having it actually make contact with a player on the opposing team. That unfortunate honor goes to Hansell Riojas who was decked in the side of the head, much to the delight of the fans at Wembley.

Take a look.

Men On Edge: Colby Jansen Straight Rugby Player

Men On Edge: Colby Jansen Straight Rugby Player cover

Colby Jansen is a big guy who’s taking some time away from married life to be tied up and edged. In the locker room he’s tied tight as we manhandle him and get his cock hard. The vibrator makes him horny and he tastes his own precum. With his nipples clamped and tied to the walls we jack him off making him pull his nipples as he squirms. He gets the hell flogged out of him as he stands on one leg and begs to cum through the gag. In the shower Colby is anxious to cum but first we tie him in full body bondage and let the water tighten the ropes around him. He finally blows his load and endures the post orgasm torment.
