NBA Marko Jaric -Starting Shooting Guard For Minnesota Timberwolves

Posted by TSUE on April 22, 2008

Marko Jaricadriana lima & Marko Jaric

Perhaps one of the luckiest guys in the world, Marko Jaric is not only a star basketball player on the Minnesota Timberwolves and in a serious relationship with one of the world’s most beautiful woman, Victoria Secret Model Adriana Lima, but this Serbian born athlete is also a:
·       Real estate mogul
·       Successful website owner
·       Owns the Italian clothing line “Macchia”
Marko Jaric was born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. He is the son of Srecko Jaric who is considered one of the greatest international basketball players ever. Originally an early entry candidate for the 1998 NBA Draft but withdrew his name from consideration to sign with Fortitudo Bologna. He did enter the NBA Draft in 2000 when he was selected as the 30th overall pick by the Los Angeles Clippers. Jaric was traded to the Timberwolves in August 2005 along with Lionel Chalmers by the Clippers in exchange for Sam Cassell.
With this years NBA basketball season coming to an end, look for Marko spending more time in New York and LA (and getting used to life with constant paparazzi) with his girlfriend, Adriana Lima. Jaric enjoys spending time in his home country of Yugoslavia and Italy. Along with Tony Parker from the San Antonio Spurs, Pau Gasol from the Memphis Grizzlies and Andrei Kirilenko from the Utah Jazz, he served as a coach for “Basketball without Boarders,” a basketball camp for young people held in Treviso, Italy during the summer of 2003.  Jaric also takes part in the teamwork at the table Thanksgiving event at St. Joseph’s Center in Venice where he helps distribute food baskets and turkeys to families.

Gus Ornstein


 Tonight @11PM on “MSG”


The Lax Report




us Ornstein began his football career as an All – State quarterback at Fieldston High School in the Bronx, NY where he was also named Offensive Player of the Year for the East Coast by the highly acclaimed recruiting analyst from ESPN and Prep Football Report Magazine, Tom Lemming. Lemming also named Gus to his All-American team following his senior year. Gus was recruited by more than 50 Division I schools and ultimately chose to play his college football at the University of Notre Dame. Despite being promised to be red-shirted, Gus appeared in one game as a true freshman throwing a touchdown pass vs. Navy. After his freshman year at Notre Dame, ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper was quoted as saying, “whenever Gus Ornstein chooses to come out of college he will be the first player selected in the NFL draft.” Due to the fact that he had lost his red-shirt year, Gus transferred to Michigan State University where he earned academic all Big Ten honors two years in a row. Gus, who had been previously drafted by the Seattle Mariners, Kansas City Royals and San Diego Padres (who traded him to the New York Yankees) left college football to pursue a professional baseball career. After a year of playing minor league baseball with the Yankees, Gus realized that his true passion was football and enrolled at Rowan University where he led the Profs to the Division III National Championship game. Gus ultimately returned to Michigan State and despite playing Division I football and baseball, graduated Suma Cum Laude in 1999.

Gus began his professional career with the St. Louis Rams. He later played for the Indianapolis Colts and the Miami Dolphins. He was next signed by the Kansas City Chiefs who allocated him to NFL Europe where he played for the Scottish Claymores. In 2002, the NY Jets signed him. Gus has also played in the Canadian Football League for the BC Lions and the Calgary Stampeders as well as in the Arena Football League.

Throughout Gus’ professional football career, he has had the rare opportunity to develop personal relationships with the best quarterbacks and quarterback coaching minds that exist today, including Peyton Manning, Phil Simms, Trent Green, Kurt Warner, Mike Martz, Jim Fassel, Al Saunders, Mike Shula, John Jenkins, Roger Staubach and Jerry Rhome. Realizing not everyone has access to these high profile athletes and coaches, Gus founded GO QB to provide quarterbacks of all ages and skill levels with the opportunity to learn techniques from a man who acquired his from the best the game has to offer. In addition to GO QB, Gus is the Director of the Parisi Speed School in Closter, NJ and is also the head football coach at his alma mater, Fieldston high School in the Bronx, NY.

Isiah Thomas Fired as New York Knicks Coach and General Manager

Posted by TSUE on April 21, 2008

Isiah Thomas


Team President Donnie Walsh fired Isiah Thomas as coach of the New York Knicks. Walsh said during a late-afternoon conference call. “I value Isiah and his knowledge of the game, and he will remain with the organization, reporting directly to me.” Thomas lost a franchise record-tying 59 games this season, and along the way seemed to lose the support of his players, who didn’t always play hard for him the way they did last season. Things began to go downhill from the time training camp opened. The jury came back with its verdict that day, finding that Thomas and MSG sexually harassed former team executive Anucha Browne Sanders and ordering the company to pay $11.6 million in damages. Criticized by Al Sharpton and Rutgers women’s coach C. Vivian Stringer for comments he made in his taped deposition, Thomas seemed downcast during most of training camp. He also feuded with point guard Stephon Marbury and benched center Eddy Curry.  With Chants of “Fire Isiah” coming from fan starting minutes after home games his position as coach and general manager came to an end.

Former NBA Player “Mark Jackson” Possbile Candidate for New York Knicks Coach

Posted by TSUE on April 21, 2008

Mark JacksonFormer NBA Mark Jackson

Mark Jackson, the former Knicks point guard, hinted that he might like to coach the Knicks, and got the approval of former Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy. Donnie Walsh, the new Knicks president, fired Isiah Thomas as coach on Friday and confirmed that Jackson was a candidate for the job. Walsh said it would take “a special person” to overcome a lack of coaching experience. But he has hired rookies in the past, including Thomas and Larry Bird in Indiana.

Mark Jackson — born in Brooklyn, a star point guard at St. John’s and a Knick for five seasons has obvious appeal in New York. The Knicks drafted Jackson with the 18th pick in 1987, and he teamed with Patrick Ewing to lead them into the playoffs the next five years. Jackson retired in 2004 with the second-most assists in N.B.A. history.  Jackson was often lauded as an intelligent player who served as a virtual coach on the court.  Former NBA standout Mark Jackson is also a game and studio analyst for ABC broadcasts of the NBA.  Jackson serves as a studio analyst for the NBA Sunday Countdown pre-game show on ABC with host Dan Patrick and analyst Michael Wilbon from the site of the ABC NBA Sunday game broadcast each week.  Jackson provides analysis during the game, paired courtside with ESPN and ABC lead play-by-play commentator Mike Breen.

Former NFL-Miles McPherson

McPherson, a former NFL defensive back with the San Diego Chargers, stands at the forefront of “transformation evangelism” and “ministry mobilization”. In addition to leading the Rock Church and Academy in San Diego, McPherson is the President of Miles Ahead which has organized events in 18 cities, including Canada and Africa. An author, McPherson also is an Emmy Award winning producer for the documentary Master Meth, which examines the abuse of crystal methamphetamine.

McPherson, who was born in Brooklyn, New York and raised on Long Island, said the ministry activities in Jamaica are all centered on the practical application of the gospel of Jesus Christ. “Our focus is to represent Christ in both the community and the culture by building smart partnerships and healthy relationships;” said McPherson who emphasized that “faith without works is dead.” (James 2:20).


MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica (April 18, 2008) – This month “faith tourism” will reach a new level in Jamaica when hundreds of visitors travel from California to donate their time and treasure to social and humanitarian development programs on the western Caribbean nation.   

Close to 300 volunteers from the San Diego-based Miles Ahead organisation will visit the island between April 24 and May 5. They will be led by former National Football League (NFL) player Miles McPherson, who founded Miles Ahead and is known for encouraging people of faith to “DO Something.” (www.therocksandiego.org/dosomething).  

Teams of volunteers are scheduled to work on projects that range from health screenings to sports clinics and from deaf interpretation workshops to rebuilding local elementary schools, while making a positive contribution to the island’s economy. The visit forms part of Jamaica Broilers Group’s 50th anniversary celebrations and three major family-oriented festivals, under the Best Dressed 50Fest banner, which will be presented in Mandeville, Montego Bay and Kingston between April 26 and May 4. 

 The festivals – put together by Jamaica Broilers in partnership with churches across Jamaica, the Luis Palau Association and Miles Ahead – will feature both local and international gospel musicians, including Papa San, Carlene Davis, Prodigal Son, Toby Mac, and Israel Houghton & New Breed, as well as messages of hope from evangelists Luis Palau, Andrew Palau and McPherson himself.  Andrew Palau will present at the Mandeville Festival to be held on the Manchester High School grounds April 26 and 27; Miles McPherson will be at Montego Bay’s Dump Up Beach on May 2 and 3; and Luis Palau will be on the King’s House grounds in Kingston on May 3 and 4.

“We are so excited to be in a position to make evangelistic, social and economic contributions to a culture that has influenced my upbringing and has helped shaped my faith,” said Miles McPherson, senior pastor of the 10,000-strong Rock Church in San Diego. His father and grandparents are from Jamaica.

He is a speaker renowned for his bold, down-to-earth and humorous style and his DO Something trademark. The intense relevance of his message challenges the young and young-minded alike, often compelling them to re-calibrate their lives in light of the Gospel.

Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady

Rumors are circling the globe ever since Super Model Gisele Bundchen stopped by LA’s Billion Dollar Brow Salon.  While she was getting pampered one of the staff members noticed a really big diamond on her left hand. When asked about the ring Gisele stated that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady brought it for her from Tiffany’s. She further went on to say that she really doesn’t wear it out much because people are always at you. The size of the ring has led many to believe that the two are engaged. But could it all be a ruse? Only time will tell for now that’s the 411 on Tom and Gisele!

NBA Denver Nuggets Carmelo Anthony Arrested on DWI

Posted by TSUE on April 17, 2008

Carmelo Anthony

Just when you thought the reign of celebrities and athletes getting arrested on DWI charges was over now reports have surfaced that NBA Denver Nuggets Carmelo Anthony has been arrested.  The police said that he was pulled over for weaving and failing to dim the light on his Silver Mercedes. After a series of failed sobriety tests he was then taken to police headquarters and booked. The bizarre twist to the story is that the arresting officer and not his finance MTV Vee Jay (LaLa Vasquez) wound up giving him a ride back to the Denver Ritz Carlton. Later on that day Carmelo went on to score 11 points leading the Nuggets to the play-offs. A court date has been scheduled for May 14th, 2008. Since the arrest Carmelo has apologized to his fans, the Denver community, his teammates and the Nuggets organization for the distraction he caused.

Foreman is a member of the National Walking Horse Association and an owner and avid supporter of sound flatshod Walking Horses. I instantly loved Walking Horses. They are beautiful. It’s the horse of a heavyweight champion; you can have a good time, look good, and not fall off, he said.  Foreman went on to say that, We all want to have a nice horse, and we want to make their life pleasant so they can make our life pleasant. Don’t put them through any stress, and they will give us a good long life. That is what it’s all about. Thanks to Foremans attendance, the East Texas Gala not only sported champion horses but also a champion of men. 
The National Walking Horse Association (NWHA), with headquarters at the Kentucky Horse Park, Lexington, Kentucky, is a sound walking horse organization that has: zero tolerance for soring, does not allow padded horses, chains, or any action devices on horses at any of their shows.

NWHA affiliates over 60 shows a year with various other sound horse organizations, and culminates the horse show season with the National Walking Horse Championship Show in September. The National Show was the largest flat shod walking horse show ever held in Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and one of the largest flat shod walking horse shows in the nation.
We are committed to promoting the naturally gaited Walking Horses said Don Vizi, Executive Director, of the National Walking Horse Organization, who was on hand for the regional championship show.
