Solo sports, such as tennis, golf, motor racing, and boxing tend to breed your better egotists.
They will make sure to let everyone know that they were, as always, perfect, and if it weren’t for “whatehisname”, they would have most likely won whatever it was everyone else was trying to win.
We’ve seen Danica Patrick, a talented young Indy Car drive, who has proven that she can hold her own with her male counterparts on the race track.
Honestly, what the hell is she thinking anyway?
And this isn’t only about girls…there are guys out there who are either very stupid, or want to act like morons, or think if they whine like a little kid, they can get what they want because it worked on their parents.
This past weekend in Montreal, at the Formula 1 race, young British driver, Lewis Hamilton fresh off his victory at the Monaco Grand Prix did one of the dumbest things a professional race car driver could do…he ran into a parked car.
At the Monte Carlo Grand Prix, Kimi apparently suffered a mild brain cramp and accidently mis-judged the braking ability of his Ferrari, and ran into another car late in the race that was running in 4th place.
You see….prima donnas like Hamilton think they’re above it all…its not their fault, its their ego taking over…it’s a built in protection device that can take years to learn.
What I’m really trying to say is…Danica…know what you can get away with, and know you’re enemies, and learn that in racing, there are mistakes…its racing.
And Hamilton…what I guess I’m trying to say is…Shut the hell up

“The Screen Actors Guild negotiating committee, representing all Screen Actors Guild members across the United States, is working hard to secure a fair deal for actors.
“SAG’s negotiating committee has made significant moves in the AMPTP’s direction on a number of proposals.
“Nevertheless, Screen Actors Guild is dedicated to the process and is committed to continuing the hard work it has already given the effort to negotiate a contract that best serves the interests of actors in the rapidly evolving entertainment media industry.
“The committee is motivated to finding a path to agreement.
“It is well known and understood by SAG members that a consistent employer tactic in negotiation is to distract from core issues and attempt to sow dissension — as management attempted in its latest communications. This tactic will not work.
“The Screen Actors Guild national negotiating committee, comprised of representatives from the Guild’s Hollywood Division, New York Division and Regional Branch Division is unanimous in its commitment to successfully concluding these negotiations.

HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Today) 6/13/08 —
Commercials for the film are short on plot and heavy on rating hype suggesting that those theater goers hoping for a return to the ‘The Sixth Sense’ glory days may be disappointed.
Fans attribute these declines to poor plots and in some cases misleading marketing.
With little substance to go on audiences for ‘The Happening’ will have to bank on gore or hope that Shyamalan has one of his characteristic plot twists up his sleeve.

“He seems to be spewing the absurdity that all Scientologists are mentally ill,” Cruise’s attorney, Bert Fields, told “New York Post” gossip column Page Six.
The comparison to Goebbels (who was responsible for propaganda under the Nazi regime) was in response to Pinsky’s suggestion in next month’s issue of “Playboy” that Cruise may have become a member of the Church of Scientology because he was neglected as a child.
“Take a guy like Tom Cruise,” Pinsky told the publication.
In a statement issued Thursday, Pinsky apologized for offending Cruise, but firmly maintained that it was not his intention to make a “blanket diagnosis” of Cruise or his fellow Scientologists and that he was simply using Cruise “as an example of someone who is recognizable to help the public understand.”
Pinsky is a specialist in addiction medicine, a medical field that often incorporates elements of psychiatry to treat patients.
