The Spin Cycle
NORTH CAROLINA (BASN)-Every great player needs a song to define him. And every great team needs a theme song to rally behind. With that said, in the moment of victory and in the agony of defeat, music should always be playing in the background. Therefore, we, at blackathlete.com, created a new segment called the spin cycle, which attempts to provide a soundtrack to the games we love.
1. Diamonds by Rihanna
Lebron James should be singing this song as he throws up the diamond sign while visiting the White House in order to meet President Obama after the Miami Heat won the NBA Title last year.
2. Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys featuring Nicki Minaj
This song should be played after Serena Williams smashed her racket during her quarterfinal loss to 19-year-old Sloane Stephens at the Australian Open.
3. All Gold Everything by Trindad James
This is the perfect song for Gabby Douglas, who became the first black gymnast to win the individual all-around Olympic gold medal as well as becoming the first American to win both the all-around and team events at the same Olympics, and only the fourth American woman to win the all-around title.
4. Love Sosa by Chief Keef
With no players elected into the National Baseball Hall of Fame this year, it’s obvious Baseball hasn’t forgotten about the steroid era that produced Mark McQuire, Sammy Sosa, and Barry Bonds. Despite that fact, chicks still love the long ball.
5. I’m Different by 2 Chainz
San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick body is full of tattoos and it made some sports writers uncomfortable like Sporting News’ David Whitley, who said he looked like someone on parole. So, I guess the guys in San Quentin are happy to see him playing in the Super Bowl.
6. Adorn by Miguel
Jay-Z, who is partial owner of the Brooklyn Nets and his wife, R&B singer Beyonce’ gave birth to their first child, Blu Ivy.
7. Clique by Kanye West, Jay-Z, Big Sean
Offense sells tickets; Defense wins championships. And the Baltimore Ravens, have some tough, hard-hitting players on defense. They include Bernard Pollard, Dannell Ellerbe, Cary Williams, Jameel McCain, Ed Reed, Ray Lewis, Corey Graham, Courtney Upshaw, Albert McClean, Terrell Suggs, Haloti Ngata, Brendon Ayanbadejo,Ma’ake Kemoeatu, Terrence Cody, Paul Kruger, Jimmy Smith, Pernell McPhee, Lardarius Webb,Chykie Brown, Josh Bynes, and James Ihedigbo.
8. Brand New Me by Alicia Keys
After being re-elected President of United States, Barack Obama should have this song sung instead of the Star Spangled Banner everytime he walks up to the podium. Simply Beautiful.
9. Young and Gettin It by Meek Mill and Kirko Bangz
In a rookie season in which RG3 threw for 3200 yards with 20 touchdowns and only five interception, he definitely was young and gettin it. Sorry, Rob Parker. He might be a cornball brother, but he still is a brother, no doubt.
10. Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen
After the Manti Te’o hoax, you might think twice about calling someone you met on-line.
