Helena Brown

Helena BrownHelen of Troy’s beauty drove her Greek suitors crazy and launched a thousand warships to fight a massive war over her. She was one of the most fascinating characters of the ancient world. Daughter to the Greek god Zeus and the beautiful Leda, queen of Sparta, Helen inherited the gifts of immortality and irresistible charm from her divine and royal parents. Her myth and legend continues to this day, but that is all she is—myth and legend.

Akon

AkonConsider song titles such as “Ghetto,” “Locked Up,” “Snitch” and “Soul Survivor.” Then, picture hip-hop heavyweights the likes of the L.O.X.’s Styles P, Obie Trice and Young Jeezy. Are these the track listings and featured guest appearances of some rapper on the verge of mainstream mega-stardom? Add a comment

Shawne Merriman

Shawne MerrimanThere are apparently no limits to Shawne Merriman’s mental and physical abilities. In his first year in the NFL, Merriman not only collected 10 sacks, but he was also named the 2005 AP Defensive Rookie of the Year and deservedly earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl. The self-proclaimed “Lights Out” had his biggest game of the season against the then-undefeated Indianapolis Colts, helping lead the San Diego Chargers to victory with a hand in three crucial sacks.

Willie McGinest

willie mcginestThe New England Patriots are an interesting team. They’re a white-collar team with a blue-collar mentality. They’re the champs—the best team in the NFL.

Where individuals draw attention to themselves, the Patriots share the spotlight with a collective cool.

Gary Sheffield

Gary SheffieldRemember September? When warmth fades and a chill sets in as dusk overtakes tall, green Jersey pine trees, shading smooth suburban pavement. The smell of cold air striking fresh woods conjures up back-to-school days, wooly sweaters, Saturday afternoon football and wild pennant races leading up to the World Series.

Juelz Santana

Juelz SantanaLet’s take it back to 1998. It’s another brick winter day in the concrete jungles of the East Coast, and an adolescent LaRon Louis James is busy traveling back and forth from his block in Harlem to the outreaches of upstate New York.
