Rapper Lil Wayne joins Bono in entering the blogosphere this week, with a new blog at ESPN on sport.
The multi-platinum award winning artist loves his sport so much, it’s apparently all he watches, according to his first post:
This is the first entry in the blog I’m doing for ESPN The Magazine. I don’t watch nothing but sports—no movies, no news, no television shows—so I thought this would be fun.
Wayne is a Packers fan, who also likes Red Sox, the Lakers and the Boston Bruin. And just for those who thought it was a white mans game, he also likes Tennis.
The blog isn’t all about Lil Wayne, though large parts of it are
I grew up playing football. Believe it or not, I was a fullback. When I was nine, ten, eleven, I was a great blocker. I knew how to block real good and the other kids didn’t. So there I was. One game when I was ten years old we were on the goal line about to score, and coach called the play for me. I was supposed to go one way, but I ended up sneaking around the other side on a sweep. Everybody thought I was already tackled. The ref was already blowin’ his whistle. But I was still up and I stutter stepped one way and beat the last guy trying to get me and scored that touchdown. That’s my favorite sports memory for myself.
