Solid moves, Michael Bennett. Although sacking Eli Manning isn’t much of an accomplishment these days.

You Come at Michael Bay With an Air Conditioner, You Best Not Miss

(Source) Director and producer Michael Bay was attacked on Thursday during filming for his latest Transformers movie in Hong Kong.

According to a statement by Paramount, an allegedly intoxicated man approached the director on the set of his movie “Transformers 4” in Hong Kong “wielding an air conditioner unit as a weapon.

“Bay ducked, took control of the air conditioner unit and stepped aside as security engaged the assailant and his two compatriots. They subdued and arrested the three men.

Paramount issued the statement after a report in Reuters that two brothers surnamed Mak, approached Bay and demanded the equivalent of $12,900, according to a police spokeswoman. It was unclear why they demanded the money, but the older brother then assaulted the director, police said.

That report also said that Bay suffered injuries to his face, but Paramount’s statement contradicts that report.

“No one on the cast or crew was injured and the production immediately resumed filming without further incident,” Paramount said.

The movie has been in production since late May.

Here’s Paramount’s full statement:

“Contrary to several erroneous news reports made today, Bay did not get hurt in a fight on set. The production company did have a bizarre encounter with a man (allegedly under the influence of a narcotic substance) who was wielding an air conditioning unit as a weapon. The man, who had earlier accosted several other crew members, rushed onto the set in Quarry Bay and swung the air conditioning unit directly at Bay’s head. The director ducked and wrested the air conditioner from his attacker, preventing what could have been a serious accident. The company’s security team quickly stepped in and subdued the assault.  The police, who also scuffled with the assailant and two of his companions, ultimately arrested the three men. No one on the cast or crew was injured and the production immediately resumed filming without further incident.”

As Michael Bay confirms on his website , he was recently attacked in Hong Kong on the set of Transformers 4 . But Bay claims earlier reports he was injured to be false.

I figured someone from Hong Kong would be a little more ninja like than these guys. Whether the reports of Bay disarming the air conditioner attacker are true or not are anybody’s guess, but my problem here lies with the attackers weapon of choice. If you’re storming a Hollywood set to do what so many of us want to do and take out Michael Bay, don’t bring an air conditioner. Crowbar, lead pipe, kendo stick. All of these are logical choices for a sneak attack. An air conditioner is not. Carrying around an air conditioner in general sounds awful, nevermind trying to configure it into a weapon. Also, if you’re trying to extort somebody, maybe use a different approach, and choose a better number. $12,900 just sounds weak. Ayo lesson here Hong Kong vendors: when you come at Michael Bay with an air conditioner, you best not miss.

Michael Beasley Beat the Shit Out of Himself During the Heat’s Preseason Game

(Source) “Michael Beasley is pretty hard on himself sometimes. Beasley received his first minutes of playing time and he was great. He scored nine points in his first five minutes of action and was diving on the floor and doing things coaches generally like to see out of players trying to make a roster. Of course, Beasley also did something a little odd after one offensive play. Upset with himself over missing a shot, Beasley started punching himself in the head while running back on defense. He punched himself so hard that he needed treatment after the game from the Heat’s trainer. Steel compresses (like the ones cut doctors use in boxing) were applied to Beasley’s brow in the locker room.”

Anyone who has ever wondered why Michael Beasley never panned out should look no further than this story. He’s on the best team in the world, with the best player in the world, and all he has to do is not be an asshole and he’ll win an NBA title. What does he do? He scores 9 points in 5 minutes (very good) and punches himself repeatedly in the head after a missed shot (very bad). Punching yourself in the head so hard that you need medical treatment is the definition of being an asshole. Somebody get Beasly a bag of skittles and some Sprite for that self inflicted hangover pronto.

PSS- Here is Jordan dominating current NBA all-star, O.J. Mayo back in 06. Still got it…at least in 2006 he does.

Duke “The Dumpster” Droese Is Doing Well

(Source) At Centertown Elementary School in McMinnville, Tenn., Michael David Droese was a hulking figure, someone to look up to. The special education teacher holds the frame — 6 feet, 6 inches and 340 pounds — of a man with a famous past.

Indeed, a Google search for Droese will expose you to a life two decades ago spent in the wrestling ring, under the lights and in front of thousands — a life that seemed impressive to students and teachers both, Warren County Sheriff Jackie Matheny said.

But, at least for now, Droese is missing from the halls of Centertown. Matheny says Droese illegally sold pain medication to a police informant, and on Friday a grand jury indicted him on three counts of delivery of a controlled substance.

On July 1, according to the indictment, Droese sold oxycodone and buprenorphine. The next day, he again sold oxycodone. Droese was arrested Friday, Matheny said, but he left jail about two hours later after paying a $10,000 bond.

Until Droese’s case plays out, he will be suspended from his job at Centertown without pay, Director of Warren County Schools Bobby Cox said. Droese, 45, did not return a call seeking comment on Wednesday.

His mugshot shows a middle-aged man with an evaporating hairline. But 20 years ago, back in the ’90s, Droese wore his brown hair down to his shoulders. He was known as Duke “The Dumpster” Droese back then, a rough-around-the-edge trashman who hailed from “the garbage heaps of Mt. Trashmore, Fla.”

Droese spent much of his career wrestling in lesser-known, independent organizations, but from 1994-96 he was a member of the World Wrestling Federation. The Dumpster fought some of the greats: Bam Bam Bigelow, Hunter Hearst Helmsley, Jerry “The King” Lawler.

His time with the biggest wrestling promotion in the world was brief. According to the company, Droese and President Vince McMahon agreed to part ways because life on the road wore The Dumpster down too much.

But many of his matches still are available online. Matheny, who teaches the Drug Awareness Resistance Education program at Centertown, said everyone knew about Droese’s past life, and everyone was impressed.

“He used to be a wrestler, a very good wrestler,” the sheriff said. “He was in the WWE, and you can look him up on the Internet and watch all his matches. He wrestled with the best.”

When he learned a couple of months ago that Droese was suspected of selling pain pills, Matheny said he was surprised. He said Droese carried a good reputation: “Everybody has a lot of good things to say about him.”

Not the greatest life story. I’d give anything in this world to become a professional wrestler, but I can’t say I’d be thrilled to play a garbage man. Then you go on to become a special ed teacher who sells drugs. To be honest, the most heartbreaking part of this story is that his real name isn’t Duke Droese. Playing a garbage man on national TV that turns into a drug peddling special education teacher is obviously a sucky life, but a cool name could make up for that. Michael Droese is not a cool name. If I’m his attorney I suggest he change his real name to Duke, and let the chips fall where they may, which is probably in jail.
