William Gilmore Simms, the famous poet, once said, “Tact is one of the first mental virtues, the absence of it is fatal to the best talent.” Abraham Lincoln broke it down like this, “Tact is the ability to describe others as they see themselves.” Then Jean Cocteau, the French writer, put it where the goats could get it when he spit, “Tact in audacity is knowing how far you can go without going too far.”
Well playas…sometimes tact is just shuttin’ your darn mouth and not sayin’ anything about a boy at all. Rule 5, Section 2, Article 7 of the Hood Code of Conduct says, “Keepin’ other folks names outcha mouth will save yo butt in the long run. Don’t look for beef and it won’t come lookin’ for you!” Now for all of you duns that grew up in the suburbs or in rural America on 4H, beef ain’t cattle.
In an interview with KFAN in Minnesota last week former Ohio State and current Vikings guard was runnin’ down a list of quarterbacks he played with in college. He mentioned Heisman Trophy winner Tony Smith, Todd Boeckmann and then he went on Terrell Pryor out of nowhere bruh.
Ole boy just jumped out of the birthday cake on him and said, “Unfortunately I could not stand any minute with him. The kid was so arrogant at the time. I mean, I hated everything about him.”
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! That was a genuine haters move right there bruh! When Terrelle Pryor showed up at Ohio State he was the No.1 ranked player in the NATION comin’ out of high school! He was already famous before he stepped on campus. Boyz had been talkin’ about him for 2 years before he’d even signed with Ohio State. They were sellin’ his jersey before he ever took a snap in Columbus. So tell me playboy, what 18 year old walkin’ into a situation where everybody and their baby’s momma is kissin’ his butt isn’t goin’ to be arrogant? I’m listenin’!!!
However, unless you were a diehard Buckeye fan at the time or unless your are a fanatic of the Minnesota Vikings right now you wouldn’t know who Alex Boone was if he hit you in the mouth and stole your bicycle. I cover the NFL and couldn’t tell you who Alex Boone is playa.
So that was some jealously comin’ out of a boy that was there when they were at Ohio State. He couldn’t say it then because Terrelle was the freakin’ man in Columbus. So he waited until a boy has fallen off to take a shot at him. That’s a coward’s move right there bruh! No matter how you try to slice it, it’s a weak move and all the real G’s can see it.
Do you know how many cats that I’ve come up with that I couldn’t stand? But NOBODY will ever know who they are or were. Why? Because a real G keeps beef to a minimum and there’s no sense in bringin’ up old foolishness. I’m grown and gone now.
For Alex Boone to bring up some old Ohio State feelings about a boy is petty and I’m not mad at Pryor for callin’ that fool out on Twitter for it. He said, “I’m a firm believer if you got a problem you say it to a man face not behind back! Guess everyone isn’t brought up the same !”
There it is bruh! Anybody that grew up in the hood understands that simple concept. You aren’t gonna like everybody that you came up with but to put a boy on blast when you really don’t ever have to see them again is as weak as they come. Stop me when I start lyin’!
