I Can’t Stop Watching DeSean Jaccson’s Stupid Instagram Vacation Video

blessed

DeSean Jaccson’s Instagram account is usually full of dumb selfies, stupid inspirational memes, and over-filtered images. But for some reason, I can’t stop watching his stupid vacation video. I don’t know if it’s the overdone effects while he’s on horseback, the quasi-deep panning shots over crashing waves, or just the fact that it exists at all, but I can’t stop. I’m on my 20th loop of it I think. I’m still going. If his TV show was like this, I’d watch every week.

You can check it yourself after the jump. Ya digg?

Desean Jaccson’s Reality Show Is Positively RIDICULOUS

Voila_Capture 2015-07-01_12-23-48_PM

So I watched the abomination that is the obviously scripted and staged DeSean Jaccson: Home Team, which debuted on BET today last night. Here’s a brief recap:

Things started off with news footage from when DeSean was released by the Eagles. The setup is obvious: Once on top, not on top, working to be on top again, but will face obstacles that can only be overcome by the guiding hand of his fame-seeking mother, Gayle.

We haven’t seen this formula before.

The framing is clearly built atop a deep hurt resulting from DeSean’s release from the Eagles. These are just some of the things he had to say with regard to that matter:

“It was a smear campaign.”

“They call me Giant killer, Cowboy killer. Now I’m an Eagle killer, too”

“I felt they definitely tried to paint a picture that wasn’t true.”

“It’s like, bro, the Eagles, they tried to blow me up– that’s how cold they did me.”

So one would assume that the following 20 minutes would consist of video evidence that DeSean is not the character he’s perceived to be, and that he’s doing all the right things to reverse the existing perception. That seems like an obvious conclusion given the early appearance of his longtime publicist, Denise, whom DeSean says is doing a “great job.”* But nope. Denise’s client is now the star of a show which features consecutive segments about his rap aspirations, partying habits, and the conundrum he faces after knocking up his girlfriend of “five or six months.” There’s no mention in the first episode of the OTAs he skipped for the second year in a row.

*This despite the fact that her client has been publicly cast as a gangster who’s not a team player and cares more about his rap career and fame than football, something that is not at all being helped by his new reality show. Yeah, she’s doing yeoman’s work.

I mean, what, on Earth, was DeSean’s camp thinking here? The questionable character traits apparent in just the span of a few minutes are staggering. They have nothing to do with him being a gangster and everything to do with him being a selfish jerk. Evidence: Continue reading

Chip Kelly’s Punch-Out!!

CKPO
Crosswalk

This post is part of The Crosswalk, Crossing Broad’s reader submitted section. While checked for basic quality and readability, it is not edited by Crossing Broad, and all opinions expressed are those of the author, for better or worse. If you’re interested in having your work appear on Crossing Broad, fill out the short sign up form here.

The most compelling story in the dumpster fire that is the Philadelphia sports scene is Chip Kelly and his need to borrow a shit to give one about what people think about how the fans, the media and his former players feel about how he wields his newfound autonomy as general manager.

Chip has become the most endorsable sports figure in Philly but let’s be real, the Tostitos thing went stale quickly. Evan Mathis was the latest to see his time with the Eagles KO’d by Chip (even if it was by request). We haven’t seen this type of carnage since Mike Tyson in his prime. The video game industry has picked up on the trend and found the perfect game to tie the “could he be a racist or is he just a megalomaniac?” head coach/general manager to: The “could it be racist or is it just one big chain of lazy stereotypes?” Punch-Out!! Series.

Welcome, Chip Kelly’s Punch-Out!!

Remember: Don’t waste your knockout punch on Tra Full of Bull if he’s not stunned.

DeSean Jaccson Is Holding Another Pancreatic Cancer Fundraiser That Probably Won’t Raise Any Funds for Cancer Research

Voila_Capture 2015-06-04_10-20-01_AM Voila_Capture 2015-06-04_10-20-08_AM

I got this Tweet the other day from a reader, who said that he was “back on the DeSean bandwagon” after seeing this in the Washington Sun Times:

If you’re in the Washington DC area this weekend, I think it might be worth a trip over to DeSean Jackson’s celebrity golf tournament over at The Golf Club at Landsdowne in Landsdowne, Va.

Proceeds for the tournament will go to the Sol Goldman Pancreatic Research Center at Johns Hopkins University, as well as the DeSean Jackson Foundation, which is a public charity that goes towards pancreatic cancer research. Jackson’s father, Bill, died from pancreatic cancer in 2009.

WHAT A GUY, RIGHT?

Well, as we’ve detailed before, there’s no record that DeSean’s charity, whose stated mission is “support in research of pancreatic cancer,” has ever donated money to pancreatic cancer research. Based on four publicly available 990 fillings (links at end of post), from 2009-2012 (their 2014 filing for 2013 isn’t available yet), D-Jac’s foundation had donated exactly… carry the 2… zero to cancer research, and yet spent tens of thousands on fundraising events, like this one, which make for great PR but do little actual good.

Here’s how the financials break down:

2009

Revenue:

$26,460

Expenses:

$0

DeSean Jaccson Missed the Start of Redskins OTAs Today, Again

Voila_Capture 2015-05-26_01-44-01_PM

Eyyyyyyyyy wat eye ned dis 4 ?? Dey say it s voln terry n e way !! 

Future SportsCenter host Dianna Marie Russini is reporting that DeSean Jaccson missed the start of Redskins OTAs today. They are, of course, optional, but this is the second year in a row Jaccson has missed the start. Last year, in April, he posted an Instagram – #MYLYFE PRIVATE VILLA [pineapple and palm tree emoticons] – while most of the other guys on his team were, you know, working. So you’d think this year he’d at least stay off the social medias until he shows up [he told 106.7 The Fan in D.C. last week that he was planning on attending]… but nope. As of two days, he was still on the water:

Eyyyy cuh Ill get therr wen i get therr !! Dis boat aint gon fly homie OR IS IT !! HA HA !! HERR MEH !!

Evan Mathis didn’t show up for the Eagles, either. But he’s in the midst of a contract-what-the-fuck-are-you-going-to-do-with-me? situation. DeSean is not. At least, not yet.

DESEAN JACKSON: HOME TEAM — Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson is at the top of his game as one of the most talked about and watched players in the NFL today. That means eyes are always on him— waiting for him to score touchdowns and waiting for him to drop the ball off the field. Even though he has the money and the fame, DeSean’s life is actually run by a core group of women including his “momager” Gayle, his sister and assistant A’Dreea, his publicist Denise and his new girlfriend, Kayla. Produced by Rogue Atlas Productions in association with Lionsgate Television. Eli Frankel, Ryan Holcomb, Elise Duran, Desean Jackson and Byron Jackson serve as executive producers. Jay Fragus and Lawrence Bell serve as co-executive producers.

EYYYYYYYY L00K AT MEH !!

DeSean Jaccson Judged the Miss Universe Pageant

Voila_Capture 2015-01-26_10-38-26_AMVoila_Capture 2015-01-26_10-38-32_AM

Beauty pageants are weird. Women who are in a contest to be the best-looking are asked to solve world hunger in 30 seconds right after they model a bikini. It’s just odd. Sexy, but odd. And last night’s Miss Universe pageant was no less odd, because it was judged by DeSean Jaccson.

Joining an illustrious expert judging panel which included Giancarlo Stanton, Kristin Cavallari and Rob Dyrdek, DeSean was tasked with helping find the one woman who could officially represent us as the spokesperson for the Universe should we ever encounter beings from another dimension (Neutrinos?!?). They chose Miss Colombia. Manny Pacquiao asked Miss USA about terrorism. All weird, but still better than the Pro Bowl.

Mike Vick says Playing for the Redskins would be a “Dream Come True”

Michael Vick, the now-boatless sometimes starting quarterback of the New York Jets, knows he is not long for the green and white. He’s only attempted more than twenty passes in two games this year, and only over fifteen in another three. On the season, he’s 64-for-121 for 604 yards and three touchdowns. But next year, the then 35-year-old Vick will be a free agent, and boy would he love to play for the Redskins.

Vick told reporters that playing for the Redskins would be “a dream come true,” and “that’s home for me. Don’t get me excited. Don’t get me excited.” Don’t get you excited? I think you’re the only one getting you excited. Vick also said he’d like to reunite with his “little brother” DeSean Jackson:

“I know his speed, I know his acceleration path, I know when he’s coming out of his breaks. There’s nobody that knows DeSean Jackson better than me. I think he knows that, and we were just trying to position ourselves to be together again, but it didn’t work out.”

You know what Mike? Maybe you guys can both play together next year, but I really doubt it’ll be in Washington.
