I haven’t bought a sports jersey since Mitch Richmond’s 1996 United States Olympic basketball team jersey, and I would never wear one now since, you know, I’m not 16, but I’d really like to have one of Donté’s jerseys since we grew up at the same time and in the same neighborhood back in Sacramento.  Unfortunately, this is a Cleveland Browns jersey and that just makes it sad (sorry, Cleveland, it’s not really your fault).  Too bad one of the other 18 NFL teams that Donté’s played for in the past few years don’t have his jersey on sale.

Several years ago, I wanted to get the jersey of another NFL wide receiver from Sacramento — Rae Carruth of the Carolina Panthers.  Then he hired a couple of people to murder his pregnant girlfriend and led the FBI on a manhunt until they found him hiding in the trunk of a car and I figured that rocking his jersey might be in bad taste.

(And, yes, Donté killed someone, too, but that was totally an accident.)

C-Bo (feat. Daz Dillinger): Crippin’

In honor of my fellow Del Paso Heights native, Donté Stallworth, who was re-signed by the New England Patriots last week and who caught a beautiful touchdown pass from Tom Brady last night, we show some love to our boys on the other side of Sacramento: C-Bo, the Garden Blocc, and any friendly faces on the Southside — even though Donté’s in Boston, I’m in St. Louis, and Cowboy is locked up in Federal prison in Arizona until May 2013, I’m sure 24th-through-29th Streets are still as strong as ever.

For any C-Bo or West Coast hip-hop fans, I’m sure Cowboy would be happy for the words of support or to hear what you think of his latest album, Orca.  He’s got nothing but time right now, so you can drop him a line:

Okay, we’ll now return to our regularly-scheduled programming.
