Delonte takes Home Depot by storm

The NBA lockout is in full effect and the players are being hit hard. Everyones favorite Celtics troublemaker and comedian Delonte West posted the following on his Twitter account just the other day:

West has made roughly 10 million since 2007. You would figure he wouldve been able to save just a little bit of that. West also claims a judge would not permit him to travel overseas to play like a number of other NBA players are trying to do, so apparently he is stuck applying for a job at Home Depot, most likely because they are not biased against silly neck tattoos.

We managed to get a copy of Delontes application.

Delonte was so serious about this Home Depot job he even took to the streets, trying to find current employees to ask them to put in a good word for him and give some tips and advice on orange fashion.

Home Depot was so impressed by his application and petitioning that they finally agreed to sign him and held a press conference announcing their most high-profile signing in the companys history, which really isnt saying much.

Home Depot has never been the same since!

Hes great at customer service, always willing to help any customer and make hilarious small talk while doing so.

If you're female hell even follow you out to your car after you're done shopping, bug you for your phone number and ask if you want an Afro ride until you finally give in and just give him your number. Than wily little Delonte!

Delonte once got in a looooooooooot of trouble after he was pulled over on a three-wheeled motorcycle and a police officer discovered he was carrying a large number of guns. Who knows if he was off to war or on his way to an NRA meeting? Either way it certainly didnt look good. Now that he works at Home Depot, however, he can just use the fork lifts to carry his stuff and it will just look like hes working!

With all those supplies around Delonte has even found creative ways to support his other hobbies and make all the customers he serves feel a bit more..relaxed.

Delonte is always working hard! When the job got a little too boring one day, he decided to build a stage for some entertainment. The employees LOVED his idea and it was suddenly party time at Home Depot!

On the plus side there were also plenty of places to hide and take a nap after the raging party and all the clean up. At least Delonte knows how to have a good time!

If you have kids dont be afraid to bring them on down to Home Depot. Delonte loves to give demonstrations with all the tools but make sure your kids dont hand over their toys. Delonte gets carried away sometimes.

Yeah. This lockout aint a game.

Brady, Harbaugh found common ground on plane ride back from Michigan

Brady, Harbaugh found common ground on plane ride back from Michigan

FOXBORO -- What could have been an awkward plane ride for Tom Brady and John Harbaugh was made less so thanks to a high school lacrosse player. 

Brady and Harbaugh shared a private plane back from Michigan where Jim Harbaugh and his University of Michigan program put on an event for National Signing Day. About a year earlier, Brady told a room full of reporters that Harbaugh and his coaching staff should study the rule book and "figure it out" after hearing that they were pretty upset about the unusual formations the Patriots ran during their AFC Divisional Round win over Baltimore. 

They may not have been on the best of terms.

"I was pissed off," he told ESPN's Ian O'Connor before the start of this season. "It was uncalled for. And the rules are deeper than that, and I know the rules, and I stand by why that play shouldn't have been allowed. ... So yeah, that should never have been said."

But on the flight was Harbaugh's daughter Alison, a high school lacrosse player. When Brady took some time to share a few thoughts on competitiveness with her, he and Harbaugh found common ground.

"We had a lot of fun," Harbaugh said of the flight. "I don't know if he's talked about that at all, but we ended up sharing a plane ride along with my daughter and a couple of his people, friends of his. We just had a chance to just talk for a couple hours. And really more than anything, Alison got a chance to listen to Tom Brady talk about competing and what it takes to be great at what you do.

"And one of the funny things about it was, he was so nice to her. He gets off and they go, and we get back on the plane and we're talking, and she says something like, 'Boy, Tom really is a nice guy.' And I look at here and go, 'Tom?' I'm thinking 'Mr. Brady' would have been more appropriate. She said, 'He said to call me Tom.' I got a kick out of that.

"It was good. Lot of respect for him and a lot of respect for what he's accomplished. He's very tough to compete against. The best quarterback that's played, certainly in this era, without question in my mind. That's how I would rank him. And it's just another tough challenge to have to play against him."
