Betty White Is A Saint

Posted: April 1, 2011 by bretthouseal1 in Uncategorized

One name: Betty White. Betty White has been on the acting scene for decades and she hasn’t stopped chugging, even at the age of 89. White has been featured on my different comedy television shows, but most importantly on the hit show, “The Golden Girls”. “Golden Girls” was created by NBC and was a show about 4 elderly women and their everyday lives. It was very successful because it was the first of its kind, featuring just elderly women AND the fact that it was a comedy. After the show Betty White was the lovable grandmother every one wanted. Once again, Betty White is joining forces with NBC, but in a totally different type of show. NBC is making a show starring Betty White in a reality show in which White pranks younger people when they least expect it.  The working title is “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers” and will be aired soon. I will definitely be watching because lets face it, an 89 year old woman pranking young people is classic. Betty White is a saint.

Rape charges dooming NCAA athletes

Posted: February 8, 2011 by bretthouseal1 in Uncategorized

Over the past few months, many NCAA Division I athletes have been in the news for the possibility of charges of rape to their name. As harsh as it might seem, it is necessary to look at this problem from two different view points. It is not right to automatically assume that these allegations are true. These allegations could be completely fraudulent and imagined by an infuriated fan, girlfriend, or others. However, the allegations might be true and the student-athlete should get what he deserves. Whatever the case, there has been a staggering amount of people that have been accused in such a short time.

These are just a few of the athletes that have been accused:

Garrett Wittels, a baseball player at Florida International University, is facing charges of rape while he was in the Bahamas.

University of Washington basketball player (unnamed) was accused, but not charged with rape.

Darrell Williams, an Oklahoma State basketball player, is facing charges of sexual battery and rape.
