Lil Wayne Offers Blog Services to ESPN

An ESPN interview about Major League at-bat music (a bunch of players use Lil Wayne's music) has led to the rapper writing for the magazine's daily blog. His first post includes the following explanation: "I don't watch nothing but sports—no movies, no news, no television shows—so I thought this would be fun. Because I watch so much sports, I like to think I know what's gonna happen. But with the NFL this year, some things have shocked me, some things have been just terrible. Like the Bengals. Damn. I kind of had a feeling things were gonna be bad, but I didn't want them to be this bad. And oh my God the Chargers."
Wayne goes on to say how much he loves tennis, fantasy football (his fifth place team is called The South Beach Sloths) and Pedro Martinez. He also talks about his stint as a fullback and which team he thinks will win the World Series. And you know what? Unlike a lot of his songs, the post makes sense! Be sure to watch ESPN The Mag Daily for more posts from Weezy in the coming months.
