76ers’ Dalembert honored

(Via www.philly.com) The Professional Basketball Writers Association on Monday named 76ers center Samuel Dalembert as the recipient of the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award for 2009-10.

The award, named for the NBA’s second commissioner, honors an NBA player or coach for “outstanding service and dedication to the community.”

Dalembert was honored for his efforts after a devastating earthquake hit his native country, Haiti, on Jan. 12. Dalembert twice visited Haiti, raised awareness for relief, and donated $100,000 to UNICEF.

“What Samuel has done should be a model for all professional athletes,” said Doug Smith of the Toronto Star, president of the writers’ association, in a news release. “He saw a crying need for help and worked tirelessly to give whatever aid he could while spurring others to act and contribute as well.”

In 2007, Dalembert founded the Samuel Dalembert Foundation, which assists Haiti by teaming with UNICEF, the Red Cross, and Feed the Children.

Happy Earth Day!

I don’t know about you, but Earth Day really puts me in the mood. (Not really, just go with it.) I mean, Mother Nature made today’s Earth Day wet, dry, warm, cold, and windy for us! All of that change may make you want to change partners. I get it. If you do choose to get down on this lovely day that is Earth Day, please be “geared up.” Because much like the weather today, sometimes you never be too prepared. Lucky for you (not for me, I’m not as promiscuous as you) Red Eye (via my Flip camera) has brought you a service that is there to help. The moral? Happy Earth Day and don’t catch VD. Wait….what?

Happy 2 1/2 day weekend?

I’ve totally been M.I.A. huh? Well, with the midlife crisis birthday behind me and with bitterness in my heart that Jews didn’t get a 1/2 day on Friday, I wish you a happy Easter. Wait for “him” to rise and look for eggs…seriously…WTF???
