Oh well. It was great to be No. 1 but with all things, what comes up , must come down. But then again, not too many peopel are able to be at No. 1. so the mizzou Tigers have nothing to be ashamed of. The former No. 1-ranked Tigers (PICTURED COMING OFF THEIR PLANE) fell 38-17 to Oklahoma in the Big 12 championship game Saturday night in San Antonio. Although th etema was passed over to play in the BCS Bowl, they are able to still play in an important college bowl, The Cotton Bowl on Jan. 1 against the Arkansas Razorbacks (I'm sure E Lynn is ready for that one. LOL) Missouri will be heading to its fourth bowl game in five seasons, and by far to its most prestigious in Coach Pinkel’s seven seasons at MU. In related MU news, The University of Missouri-Columbia campus is keeping the hyphen and everything after it for official purposes. But the Board of Curators for the four-campus system agreed last Thursday to let the state's flagship school go by the University of Missouri for recruitment, fundraising, marketing and intercollegiate athletics. The campus also can drop the regional designation or go by MU or Mizzou on second reference in official correspondence. I gues sif you have bene ranked No. 1 you can do whateva ya please cause athletics are a big funds gainer for colleges!

Democratic Presidential hopeful Sentaor Hilary Clinton was in the STL again for two events to raise fnds for her 2008 Presidential Camapaign She first appeared at a public fundraiser at the Pageant, a concert venue, last Sunday. There, She told nearly 1300 in attendance they need to "clean house" at the White House. Outside, it was reported that tight security and a few war protesters set the scene (After the hostage situation in NY at her office I'm sure was a key compnenet for TIGHT security) . Tickets for that fundraiser cost $25 to $100. Later that night, Clinton attended a private fundraiser in Ladue where donors are giving more than $2,000 each. Seems like Clinton is mos def on the cmapaign trail here in th STL (She was here this summer as part of a Democratic Presidential Campaign Debate at this year's Urban League Conference) We'll see next month how ewll it will start when the Iowa Caucus takes place.

People are still talking about the embarrassing police video showing Cards manager Tony Larussa failing his DIU test after being pulled over last Mrach in Jupiter Florida during Spring training. The contriversy stems from the fact that the police leaked the video after LaRussa plead guilty to the DUI charge and his plea deal last week. The video was a cringe-inducing montage of La Russa stumbling and bumbling The dashboard camera of a Palm Beach County sheriff's deputy captured La Russa struggling to walk and failing to recite the alphabet: "... T, U, V, V, Z, T, U, V, X, Y, X, Z."And from there, the video spread far and wide. It was played and replayed and, for good measure, played again on TV newscasts, ESPN Sports Center and across hundreds of websites, including YouTube, sports blog and this newspaper's Its gonna be hard for LaRussa to live this 1ne down, but STL baseballanatics and AM radioholics love Larussa so, I'm sure they will sweep this under the rug---that is, until the Cards start losing next season.

On Monday, St. Charles County Prosecutor Jack Banas addressed the media in St. Charles, and the media around the world, when he announced there will be no charges filed in the MySpace suicide case of Megan Meier because teher was no law to prosecute. The parents of 13-year-old Megan Meier have expressed anger at the news that the adult whom they claim bullied their daughter into suicide in her bedroom was not prosecuted. The parents , Tina and Ron Meier were on the Today Show Monday (and other national morning talk shows) felt that her daughter’s death, which took place this time last year, should have been punished. They also who believe their daughter's October 2006 suicide was the result of a cruel cyber hoax are pushing for measures to protect other children online. The mother of a former friend (an 18-year-old employee) of Megan's allegedly created a fictitious profile under the name JOSH in order to gain Megan's trust and learn what Megan was saying about her daughter. But the communication eventually turned hostile. This case has definitely hype dup the term ‘cyberstalking’ to another level. It is definitely a tragedy.

Former Cards manager Whitey Herzog fell one vote short of election to the Baseball Hall of Fame on Monday but another former St. Louis Cardinals manager, Billy Southworth, was chosen by the revamped Veterans Committee. Herzog managed the Cardinals to a seven-game World Series victory over the Brewers in 1982 and won NL pennants in 1985 and ’87. He also managed the Kansas City Royals to three consecutive American League West titles from 1976-78. Herzog and former umpire Doug Harvey each received 11 votes, one short of the 75 percent required for election. The committee voting on former managers and umpires included Cardinals Hall of Famer Bob Gibson and Cubs Hall of Famers Ferguson Jenkins and Billy Williams. It has been speculated that Herzog will be elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2009. .....................Looks like the Ballpark Village project in the STL has pulled a snag in the next phases of teh multimillion dollar project. it has been reported that the project is going through tennant problems (which bizness will move into the complex) . One particular tennant, the Centene Arts, is working with St. Louis city officials to deliver a crucial piece of financing to make Centene's new downtown headquarters at Ballpark Village a reality -- $100 million in New Markets Tax Credits. Meanwhile, one the phased projects, the Lumeiere Place project, in less than a month, St. Louis will see the end of a journey that started nearly four years ago when Pinnacle Entertainment snagged the rights to build a downtown casino.The $507 million project — or parts of it at least — will open Dec. 19. The STL is slowly becoming the Little Las Vegas (which the area was dubbed just like in its heyday in the 40s and 50)with the Casino Queen on the East. and the Presdient Casinio in the STL downtown area...............................Jurors found Metro had breached its contracts with the joint venture consisting of Parsons Brinckerhoff, STV Inc., Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. and Kwame Building Group (called Cross Country Colloborative) this week. Kwame Building Group rep Tony Thompson reportedly said that justice had prevailed. The jury ordered Metro to actually pay the collaborative $2.56 million, but the payments may not stop there. The group intends to recoup its legal fees, which could be several million more. On Friday, Metro lost its lawsuit against CCC Metro sought more than $80 million in damages from the group known as the Cross Country Collaborative, claiming breach of contract and fraud.Instead the jury awarded approximately $2.5 million to the CCC, which filed a countersuit against Metro. The lawsuit centered on the fifteen-month delay and cost overruns for the MetroLink extension project, which runs from Forest Park to Shrewsbury. More than three years after Metro filed the lawsuit, the jury found in favor of the CCC. It was the longest civil trial in St. Louis County history, with legal costs reported at approximately $25 million. I guess Thompson can thank Gillette for the good luck (In case you didnt know he had a Gillete ad in ths month's Ebony Magazine). LOL

I heard that STL hit rapper Huey turned it out at last Sunday's Sunday Night Shindig at Lucky's. The way his career has been this year with a best selling single, "Pop. Lock and Drop it" and CD, "Notebook Paper." Huey has become this year the IT rapper in the STL (Nelly's "Wadsyamane" failed on the charts and Chingy's "Fly Like Me" with Amerie has yet to hit the charts). So is it safe to say te New St. Lou Movement has merit ? We'll see.

Congrats and good luck goes out to three locla movers and shakers. The first goes to to Derrick Johnson(SEEN WITH LADY ) for winning the American Open Weightlifting competition in Birmingham last weekend. He won in the 62KG division. The 2007 American Open Weightlifting Championships saw 15 athletes win gold medals in their respective divisions at the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Complex in Birmingham, Ala. The event was a ranking event, meaning that posted totals can count toward an athlete’s national ranking. There are four ranking events that count toward qualification for the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Weightlifting; the 2007 World Championships, 2007 American Open, 2008 National Junior Championships and the 2008 National Championships. The top 30 ranked women and men following the conclusion of the 2008 USA Weightlifting National Championships, February 29 to March 2 in Columbus, Ohio, will qualify for the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Trials, May 16-17 in Atlanta, Ga. From what I hear Johnson has the opportunity to go all the way to the Olympics next year in Beijing. Godo luck to ya!.........................Is photographer Mr. Jacob of becoming a model? Not quite. I saw his pic as one of the contestants in the The Mr. and Ms. Professional Sexy Contest sposnored by AFTER HOURS (SEE EVENT SPOTLIGHT OR MORE DETAILS)Well, Mr. Jacob good luck to ya...................... Poet Wordsmith traveled to Dallas ( I believe) last week to videotape his entry in the Famecast competition under the Spoken Word category. He was one of five poets from across the country who were selected to compete in the website cast compeition. Finals and voting will be begin on Dec. 14. To check out Wordsmith and/or to vote for him go to and CLICK the Spoken Word section.

OUTTOWN received a mass email Tuesday in reagrds to alleged racist remarks at Dolce's in STL downtown. The email read:

Most of you in St. Louis know of, and probably have been to the popular nightspot, DOLCE. > > Well a few days ago my cousin, a well-respected attorney, stopped by there for happy hour. He arrived early, thus the only people in the place were affiliated with the establishment. These white men were in conversation and did not realize he had entered. > > To his shock what he heard was, "WE'RE JUST GOING TO HAVE TO TELL THEM NI**ERS WE DON'T WANT THEM HERE!!!"> > At this point, my cousin stepped forward to make his presence known. One of the Individuals noticed him, and with a stunned look said, "May I help you?"> > My cousin, still in a suit from work, simply left.> > He had no idea as to the context of the conversation, nor exactly which "NI**ERS" were in question. My assumption is a group of promoters wanted to rent the place, thus putting money in DOLCE'S pockets!!! But in any case, the statement and the use of the word tells me that really, they don't want African Americans in their place - period! So, I will do them a favor and NEVER ATTEND DOLCE AGAIN!!! > > I ask any of you (regardless of race) who have no tolerance for bigotry to do the same and BOYCOTT DOLCE!!! > > As a person in the "industry" it truly bothers me that some businesses still think Blacks should not be drinking out of the "Whites Only" water fountain!>
I have no probelm with this boycott, but my question is, what will come out of it after DOLCE saids I'm sorry? Will we still patronize after DOLCE gives More accomdations? Special privileges? or a Black Night? This sounds like Denny's (and locally Adams Mark Hoitel) all over again. I cram to understand!

And lastly, OUTTOWN gives its sympathies to former STL Public School Board Presidnet Veronica Obrien who lost her husband last weekend.

This weekend Yours Truly laid low and dint do much as far as pictures, but that didn’t mean I didn’t hear what was going on or I was sitting idle twiddling my thumbs looking at the wall.

Last Friday, I checked out Stress Free Fridays at the new establishments Knockouts Bar and Grill located on New Halls Ferry where the former Dime Slot was located. It was a packed house and some of the STl movers and shakers came through like Freeman Bosley Jr. Jim Buford Jr.,and Fox 2's Rob Desir. Knockouts owner boxing trainer Kevin Cunningham was MIA out of town, but UI hear that he told the creators of Stress Free that the bill was on him when it came to whatever they wanted as far as the drinks (but I do hear that the workers had a slight problem with the communication on this matter, but all was well).

If you haven’t been to the spot, you must see it. It’s a plethora of plasma screens in the bar and grill area. And theirs a pool /game area in the back where people can get their gaming on. Oh and Stress Free's Mario Wayne gets the TMP (TOO MUCH PLAYIN) Award for givin most of the crowd "the tongue inside a V sign"" using his tongue and a peace sign! LOL

Last Saturday, there werre several events goin on including the Platinum Group’s annual Platinum Christmas Party that was held this year at Broadway in Baden , SYGU Group presents MC Wafeek who’s coming home from Cali to perform, Sat. Dec. 1 at the Halo Bar new organization The Virtue Lounge presented its Inaugural X-mas Party,Dec. 1, 8 p.m.-11 p.m. Comedy. Music. Poetry and Jazz. Hosted by Ron Young and performance by special guest J.R. at Cookies, Jazz and More and Precision had its monthly event at AJ’s but I spent my Saturday checking out the Mizzou game at a local newscaster’s crib (or shall I say SHOWPLACE) in Webster Groves with some buddies. We kicked it watching the game on a 100 sq ft. theater screen located at the newscaster’s basement that looked like a mini bar and club down there. We threw down on drinks (and those chicken wanngs fell off the bonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnne) Although Mizzou lost (and the newscaster is a alum of the school), we still had a good time. We also saw a DVD of the classic Richard Pryor Show that bought back nostalgia of how great and before his time Richard Pryor was back in the 70s.
I would tell yawl who the newscaster was, but let's just say if you wake up in the morning and watch the news, then it should be a given if not, then I would highly recommend you invest in an alarm clock.

Oh, did i mention that I had gotten a tire blowout leaving Stress Free? Well I did and hit a median on 1509 in Illinois heading to a gas station which in turn fukked up the electrical wiring of my Kia Spectra. So when you see me in a gray Dodge Strauts dont be alamred. LOL

MIA (MISISNG IN ACTION) FILE. Where is actress Shawn Guy-Pitts?

BLIND-BITZ. Police and Cards Gone Wild. Which STL policeman who was guarding a hot spot in the Delmar Loop followed a white girl to her crib? And which U City police men drove back a white girl (who was traveling in the back seat) to the same hot spot?

It’s three different videos, including the live version of me performing Jill Scott’s hit “is it the way”,(Of course I’m doing it my way.) Love changes, (by Mothers finest) and my original “holding on”. Please check it out, tell me what you think, and if you want you can pass it on.
