Granny Goes Nuts, Attacks News Crew with a Garden Hoe

Cocoa, FL – A WESH 2 News crew came under attack on Monday while investigating a story about two teenagers who were reportedly working at a strip club in Brevard County.

The Playmates Nightclub in Cocoa remains under investigation for allegedly having a 15-year-old and 17-year-old working there in skimpy attire.

The reporter and photographer were looking for one of the teenagers but encountered a furious grandmother instead.

A videotape recorded during the incident showed the grandmother charging the photographer with a garden hoe. One swing landed squarely on the camera.

Nobody was hurt in the attack. Police reviewed the videotape.

The investigation into the situation at the strip club in continuing.

Granny is pissed. Think about it. Granny probably wasn’t too excited to find out that her lil’ angels were working down at the local strip joint in the first place. Then the local television crew comes stormin’ her door down, like it’s Normandy or something, and shoves a camera in her face.  No kiddin, Granny is gonna go nuts with a hoe on those reporters just like Ralphie did on Scutt Farkas.

Foxy picks…. The Cavs

After a much needed extra 24 hours of deliberation, one determining factor kept poking at my skull: LeBron James. In the end, that’s all that was really needed.

bronbron Foxy picks.... The Cavs

It wasn’t hard for Foxy to pick Cleveland to be here, they have played nobody. The Magic on the other hand just got done with a tough seven game series against the defending champion Celtics. I think Rashad Lewis could be the X factor because, while the Cavaliers have enough to matchup with Howard, Lewis may just be too good on the offensive side of the ball. Cleveland will be tough to beat with homecourt and the MVP on their side. My heart and the results from the season whooping the Magic put on them in Orlando say take the Magic, but again, LeBron.

Also, everyone likens Stan Van Gundy to a certain “adult industry actor”, but I’m goin’ with Paul Bearer. Unfortunately for Stan, the Magic won’t be able to bury Cleveland this year and LeBron will head to his second NBA Finals.

Foxy almost picked an upset with the Rockets and the Lakers will once again have their hands full with the Nuggets. As the TNT crew pointed out, the Lakers like to play hard when they feel like it. Well, that will cost them in this series, as Denver takes advantage of their complacency and wins it in six games. Anthony will live up to the hype and control the offensive end, as the Birdman takes care of the ‘D’… Nuggets in six, no doubt!!!

Magic makes Rondo and defending champ Celtics disappear

rondoover 500x375 Magic makes Rondo and defending champ Celtics disappear

Rajon Rondo had a subpar first half and the Celtics barely withstood the Magic’s deadly precision from downtown to just stay in the game. Orlando at one point was 8-of-12 from deep and led by 10 after the first, seven at the half, and five going to the fourth.

Courtney Lee was pretty much a non-factor on the offensive end, playing 17 minutes and tallying three points (1-of-5 FG, 1-for-1 FT), one turnover and one blocked shot. He did however play some lockdown defense on Eddie House, not allowing him to get a single shot off while he was in the game. House finally got him a field goal attempt with five and a half to go in the fourth and Lee resting on the bench.

Rajon Rondo played wonderful in the second half, even posterizing Dwight Howard midway through the third, as well as hitting a 23-foot jumper at the third quarter buzzer to cut the lead to five.

photo0178 500x375 Magic makes Rondo and defending champ Celtics disappear

However the Magic opened the fourth quarter on an 11-0 run and led by 16 points with just under 10 minutes to play.

Everytime Boston made a run, someone on the Magic would bury a three and kill the momentum. Orlando finished the game 13-of-21 from downtown (the Celtics by comparison were just 4-of-16). The Magic defeated Boston 101-82 and will move on to play the Cleveland LeBrons in the Eastern Conference Finals. It is Orlando’s first trip to the Conference Finals since 1996, when they were swept by the Chicago Bulls.

Lee is now the only player left with ties to the state of Kentucky. Rondo ended his brilliant season with 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting, with 10 assists and six boards to go with his two steals against just one turnover. Here’s a hilarious photog of Rondo chillin’ with McLovin courtesy of Boston sports blog Barstool Sports:

Chuck Hayes, Rockets’ season ends: Rondo-Lee to do battle later tonight

Chuck Hayes scored the Rockets first field goal of Game 7 against the Lakers.  Unfortunately for Houston it was seven minutes and fifteen seconds into the game.  Hayes’ bucket cut the Lakers lead to 13-4 and ended the Rockets’ streak of going 0-for their first 12 field goal attempts.  Despite the dismal start, Houston’s defense kept them within striking distance to the end of the first quarter, trailing 22-12 after one.

In the end however, the Rockets simply had NO CHANCE. The fact this series even made it to a Game Five, let alone Game Seven, was astonishing. Los Angeles led by Pau Gasol’s 21 points, 18 rebounds and three blocked shots, defeated Houston by the final margin of 89-70.

Chuck Hayes finished his season with eight points on 4-of-8 shooting, five rebounds, an assist against two turnovers, and FIVE steals to go with one blocked shot in 25 minutes of play. He was also Yahoo!’s top performer for Houston.

Had both Hayes and Ming played the entire series, the outcome just might have been different

Kentucky’s Rajon Rondo (Celtics) and Western Kentucky’s Courtney Lee (Magic) will square off in Game 7 of their series, tonight at 8pm ET on TNT.

Rondo and Celtics, Hayes and Rockets both headed to Game 7s on Sunday

Despite Rajon Rondo’s 19 points, 16 rebounds, six assists, four steals and five turnovers, the Celtics fell to the Orlando Magic 83-75 to force a seventh game in the series.

rondo3 Rondo and Celtics, Hayes and Rockets both headed to Game 7s on Sunday

Western Kentucky product Courtney Lee scored six points and grabbed two boards in 22 minutes off the bench and Dwight Howard led the Magic with 23 points, 22 rebounds and 3 blocked shots.

Boston put only 13 points on the board in the fourth quarter (29 in the second half) and will now host Orlando on Sunday night at 8pm ET on TNT.  The Celtics are 17-3 all-time in Game Seven’s at home.

————————————————————————————————————————–

Chuck Hayes, the 6′ 6″ center from the University of Kentucky again got the start and battled with foul trouble. Hayes finished with just two points on 1-for-1 shooting, five boards, two assists and a steal in 30 minutes of action.  Purdue graduate Carl Landry came in and gave 27 minutes off the bench, going 6-of-6 from the field and 3-of-6 from the free throw line for 15 points to go with his nine rebounds and two blocked shots, helping the Rockets lead wire to wire and force a deciding Game 7. Houston won by the final margin of 95-80.

The Rockets are +29 points when Hayes is on the floor thus far in the series.

Rondo off, but Celtics still beat Magic; Hayes’ Rockets get Demolished

Rajon Rondo played what was possibly his worst game of the playoffs, shooting just 3-of-12 from the field for six points. Rondo did grab nine rebounds to go with his five assists and one steal versus three turnovers.

rajon rondo wallpaper 500x375 Rondo off, but Celtics still beat Magic; Hayes Rockets get Demolished

The Celtics, down 10 with 5:39 to play, finished the game on a 17-3 run to win it 92-88. Boston shot 21-for-21 from the free throw line, including Big Baby Glen Davis’ two to ice it and put Boston up four with 4.6 seconds to play.

Paul Pierce had six “buskets”, as he likes to call them, and finished with 19 points, nine rebounds and eight assists. Rashard Lewis led the Magic with 19 points and Dwight Howard and 12 points and 17 boards.

Boston now leads the series 3-2 with Game 6 set for Thursday night in Orlando, at 7:00pm ET on ESPN.

chuck Rondo off, but Celtics still beat Magic; Hayes Rockets get Demolished

Chuck Hayes again got the start, and got off to a fast one. Hayes scored four points and grabbed four boards (three offensive) in the first 5:25 of the game before picking up his second foul.

Not sure his presence would have mattered as Los Angeles absolutely destroyed the Rockets, building a 29 point first half lead, 25 at halftime.

The Lake Show is up 40 goin to the fourth, and Hayes is on the bench with five fouls. I’m off to pop some Z’s. I’ll update Chuck’s final line in the am.

Right now he has six points on 3-of-6 shooting and still just the four boards to go along with his five fouls in 17 minutes of action. The Rockets will lose, but hey their +/- is only (-7) in the 17 minutes Hayes did play; the 19 minutes he’s been on the bench? Minus 33!

L.A. now leads the series 3-2 with Game 6 set for Thursday night in Houston, at 9:30pm ET on ESPN.

Rajon Rondo continued his brilliance for the Celtics with 21 points and 14 rebounds to go with his three assists and one steal against three turnovers in a balanced effort for Boston (all five starters in double digits and three players with 21+). Glen “Big Baby” “Ticket Stub” Davis drilled the buzzer beater to even the series at two games apiece.

Western Kentucky product Courtney Lee was again in the lineup for the Magic with a protective mask following a solid return off the bench—11 points in 32 minutes in Game 3 he posted 23 minutes and was 3-of-8 from the field for eight points, three boards and an assist versus one turnover. Game 5 will be played Tuesday night at 8pm ET back in Boston.

Chuck Hayes, due to Yao Ming being sidelined for the rest of the postseason, was inserted into Houston’s starting lineup and did what folks in the Bluegrass got to enjoy for four years. Hayes played 36 minutes and went 1-of-2 from the field for two points, but grabbed nine rebounds, had two assists, four steals and blocked a shot while turning it over just once. The Rockets destroyed the Lakers to even the series at two games apiece, with Game 5 coming Tuesday night in Los Angeles.

Randolph Morris hasn’t seen one second of action in Atlanta’s three sacrificial games to Cleveland. And Murray State’s James Singleton has put up seven points, three boards, a block and a turnover in just under 22 minutes of action against Denver.
