Lebron and D-Wade bring the Heat

Printscreen from ESPN.com
Remember that game where Dewayne Wade scored five points and had five turn overs? No? Yeah, he does not either. But it was Game 3 against the Pacers.  After the game, the pundits, critics and armchair point guards went in about how Lebron James always chokes.  Wait...didn't D-Wade have the poor performance?

Athletes have to have amnesia. If a gymnast falls during the vault, she has to go repeat that vault and forget what happened.  If a quarterback has thrown interceptions, he has to forget all of them and drive his team down the field. When a basketball player throws up bricks, he has to keep shooting.

The Heat were down 2 games to 1, heading into Game 4.  Guess what? They got amnesia. So they tied up the series. Then Game 5 came around...and they downright got dementia! Wade and James went all the way in like Seal Team 7. The Pacers were obliterated.

Tonight was Game 6. James and Wade were at it again. They polished off the Pacers in Indiana. Wade rained on them with 41 point. Jame came with 28 of his own. Now the Heat await the winner between Boston and Philly.

A Sense of Safety (Guest Post)

A Sense of Safety: Protection for Survivors of Domestic Violence February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month . Many young adult DV relationships begin during the teen years. When involved in a DV relationship, a person's safety is very often in peril. Nora Hood guest blogs for YBBG in this post. A Sense of Safety: Protection or Survivors of Domestic Violence. Approximately 20,000 calls are made to the National Census of Domestic Violence Services every day. It’s a fact of life for domestic violence survivors who live in fear that a former partner will show up without warning, seeking revenge. Unfortunately, the vast majority of victims haven’t prepared a plan of action, or had security or monitoring devices installed. Protection is a major concern in light of the fact that three women are killed by a partner every day. Providing for your safety and that of your children can seem an overwhelming objective for domestic violence victims who are just trying

Brian Banks, falsely accused of rape by Wanetta Gibson

Brian Banks celebrates with his mama. Photo from LaTimes UPDATE A comment posted below led me to Brian's website  http://brianbanks.org/the-incident/  . There, I read the story from his perspective.  According to him, he and Wanetta Gibson never had sexual intercourse.  They merely fooled around.  At the time he was sixteen years old, which makes his incarceration even more atrocious.  You can continue reading the original post I made below. ______________________________________________________ He was only 17 years old in 2002, and a hot commodity on the football field. One day he links up with a classmate, and they have sex. When the girl's mother finds out, Brian Banks is arrested and charged with rape and kidnapping. He faced 41 years in prison. His attorney advised him to plead no contest to serve less than a quarter of that time. Brian Banks relents. Meanwhile the girl, Wanetta Gibson, continues to keep up the charade.  Her mother eventually sues the Long Bea

Wanetta Gibson's video confession

Wanetta Gibson photo: blacksportsonline Wanetta Gibson was a sophomore, when she met up with Brian Banks, a junior star linebacker, in a stairwell at Long Beach Polytechnic High. They stood in the stairwell making out, and then went their separate ways. That make out session led to an accusation of rape. Watch the video to see Brian tell what happened to him after their make out session. Then you will see the undercover video of Wanetta, ten years later, saying a rape never occurred. Wanetta Gibson reached out to Banks on Facebook, of all places, wanting to "let bygones be bygones".  He set up a meeting with her to be secretly recorded, confessing that a rape never happened.  She met him, but refused to go to court, and didn't even give him the courtesy of an apology. We now know that Brian went to prison off of, what I consider, poor legal advice.  His attorney allegedly told him he would be perceived negatively because he was a big black guy,
