Happy holiday weekend to all!

The Easter and Passover holiday weekend is upon us, but it remains a rainy weekend. It usually rains on Good Friday, though, and for good reason. Today is another wet one outside, but I suppose the rainy is necessary. I will gladly accept rain before snow any day of the week and twice on Sunday, as we need the rain to help the plants and trees grow and get ready to welcome summer which is on it's way about two months from now. Rainy is essential at this time, but it still doesn't feel that nice to have the cloudy skies spitting down at you! LOL.

Tonight is yet another fight night on HBO, as middleweights Paul Williams and Winky Wright will square off in a 12 round affair at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, NV. William, 27, is ten years Wright's junior and has been active in the ring, fighting all comers from 147lbs to 160lbs. Wright has been inactive since his July 2007 unanimous decision loss to then-light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins. I'll be watching this fight on television at home, but I look forward to making another visit to Miami Mike's on May 2 for the Pacquiao vs. Hatton 140lb super fight which will be televised on HBO PPV. For more on both of these boxing events, be sure check out BoxingChronicles.com, coming to you from none other than B-Money!

Lets see... has anybody heard about Prince's latest album 'MPLSoUND'? Well it includes a song in which he reveals his attraction and admiration for actress Selma Hayek by addressing her daughter Valentina. The main lyrics in the song are, "Hey, Valentina, tell your mama she should give me a call. When she gets tired of running after you down the hall." That would probably come off as creepy if the average Joe were to make such a statement, but this is Prince we're talking about here. He's just a little eccentric and we could probably come to expect those types of lyrics from him, although he is an admired and respected performer in the music industry. I can't blame him either for attraction to Hayek. Prince has my kind of taste; Hayek is definitely one hot piece!

Other than that, I'm just taking it easy as this spring unfolds and I'm looking forward to the events that are yet to happen in the upcoming weeks and months. Stay tuned for more news in the coming days and have a Happy Holiday!
