It’s Friday, and in most cases, this represents the end of another long, grueling work week. Happy hours are on the horizon, and the start of 48 hours of ecstasy are staring us directly in the eye. Fridays are great to begin with. Yet today, August 3, 2012, is in essence an unofficial thug holiday. It’s a day that calls for nights to be celebrated with the closest of friends around the nakediest (no, that’s not a word, but it is now) of strippers with the finest of alcohol. Pop a bottle, smoke a loud pack, grind against something curvaceous and tell her in another place, at another time that if Sallie Mae didn’t have you by the balls you two would be perfect for one another. But instead you just want to make tonight last forever because it symbolizes a moment in time which will not soon be forgotten in American history. What’s so glorious about this certain day? I’m glad you asked.
Floyd Mayweather is a free man after serving what was roughly two months in a Las Vegas jail. And if that’s not cause for a celebration, then quite frankly not much else is either.
First things first, no one employed or affiliated with The Sports Fan Journal advocates domestic violence. It is, indeed, a very real issue plaguing America and one which likely hits home for damn near everyone reading these words. Still, Kenny, Ed and myself are three of the biggest Floyd Mayweather fans on the face of this beautiful planet the hands of God created. Last week, I reached out to these two telling them we had to welcome Floyd Da Gawd back in style. And not just with a regular “hey, Floyd’s great” type post. Nope, that just wouldn’t fly.
So after some soul searching, we came to the consensus that we’d craft a six-step manual for how the second greatest boxer behind Muhammad Ali should enjoy his newfound freedom. Some are lighthearted and comical. Some come with a more serious backbone. But all of them need to happen. Without further ado, ladies and gentleman, Kenny Masenda, Eddie Maisonet and myself, Justin Tinsley, would like to welcome you to The Floyd Mayweather Welcome Home Appreciation scripture.
