The Deezies Afterparty, 9-12-07
(cue instrumental - 50 Cent, "In Da Club")
TJ: This is the Deezies Afterparty! Ty Jackson here, the host of the only show that takes a weekly look at the Deezies fa Sheezies. On Sunday, the Deezies kicked off their season with a decisive win over Duckett/Stanton. This week, they hit the road to take on the Fenton Tornados. Can the Deezies fa Sheezies make it two in a row? We'll look at how the Deezies did and what they can expect, in just a moment.
(fade out instrumental)
TJ: Thank you for joining us for this second week of the Deezies Afterparty, airing in syndication across the continental U.S. on the Deezies Sportsradio Network. [fade out instrumental] I'm Ty Jackson, here again with the coach of the Deezies fa Sheezies... give it up for C-Deezy fa Sheezy!
("applause" sound effect)
CD: Yo, countin' dollaz each and every zero, y'all, fa sheezy, it's ya boy, C-Deezy, holla!
TJ: Now, Deezy, I know you've got to be proud about how your team handled itself in week one. Walk us through some of the highlights.
CD: Yo, we came out the chute and did exactly what I said we'd do. I said we was gonna make Duckett/Stanton an example of what we do when we do how we do, yo! We did it big from top to bottom, and then stuffed some more in the sides, ya know what I'm sayin'? They ain't have no answer for us! Before the game, it was all "watch out for Vrabel! Look out for Devin! They play on special teams!" Yo, I didn't know they was talkin' 'bout the Special Olympics, y'all! But that's alright, yo, cuz we had a case of downs syndrome... first downs syndrome... we couldn't stop gettin' first downs! Every time Tony dropped back, somebody was 7-11, you know what I'm sayin'? Always open! We kilt them, dog! We coulda been in a police line-up and they still cain't see us! I thought it was Halloween the way those tricks was treatin'!
TJ: Let me ask about the mistakes... the sacks, the fumbles, and the interception. Was it first-game jitters, or a cause for concern?
CD: Yo, we gotta high-speed, high-powered offense and a shut-em-down defense, so we gonna have our hands on the ball a lot, yo, and the more you got the ball, the more chances they is to take it from ya, ya know what I'm sayin'? It's like a squirrel crossin' the road... no matter how fast you goin', sometimes he gonna make it across. But, yo, peep this... you cain't turn over the ball if you ain't got it. And Duckett/Stanton, they couldn't do nothin' even when they had the ball. But, yeah, we gotta do a better job of hangin' onto the ball when we play real teams, on tha real.
TJ: Speaking of real teams, next week the Deezies travel to Fenton to play the Tornados... the first game to be played in Fenton since the devastating weather that passed through a few weeks ago. Have you had a chance to visit Fenton and assess the damage?
CD: Yeah, I went up there for a minute to see what was up, and it was like nothin' I'd ever seen before, on tha real! I remember seein' those pictures of Marlette a couple of years ago, just bein' humbled knowin' that somethin' like that could happen 'round here, and I had that same feelin' walkin' through Fenton. And tha worst part was seein' all that new turf, just torn up from tha floor up, ya know what I'm sayin'? You ain't neva wanna see no field like that!
TJ: I understand that the field might not be ready for Sunday's game.
CD: Yo, I talked to they people about that, and they was like, "we're only gonna use half the field," and I was like, "50 yards, bet!" We gonna play ol' skool, with the whole run to the edge and yellin' "check" and sh... I mean, stuff. Yo, caught myself. But, yo, as I was sayin', we be the king of that kinda street ball. Back when I was growin' up on the mean streets of the A-Deuce, we only had five yards to play wit'! Fred's, Skeet-Skeet's, the Jacksons', Miss Parker's, and Twan's! But, ya see, they wasn't all in a row, cuz you had Old Man Lewis in the middle, and he didn't want no kids on his lawn, fo' sho'! So we'd play all the way up to the edge, and then have to call "time" so we could go along the sidewalk and get to the next yard, yo! And I spent the last summer coachin' in Canada, so I ain't got no problem gettin' guys to go both ways, ya know what I'm sayin'?
TJ: I hear ya, Deezy! Now I heard that you've done something very special for the people of Fenton.
CD: That's right, yo! When I got back from Fenton, I went up to our ticket office, and I got all of our tickets for the game... we musta only sold four or five, cuz there was a whole bunch 'a 'em left... and I took 'em down to tha corner store, and I set up a table, and I called up a couple 'a the local radio and TV stations, and I was like, "yo, I'm down at the corner store tryin' to get some stuff for all the good people up in Fenton, so I'm gonna give away a pair of tickets to Sunday's game to anyone who brings down a canned good. And if you ain't got a canned good, I'm right in front of the corner store, so you can come buy you a canned good and get you a pair of tickets, yo!" So now we got like 30 cans to take up there to help feed the good people up in Fenton!
TJ: 30? Don't you mean 30 dozen?
CD: Nah, we got 30! I done counted 'em myself!
TJ: How many tickets did you give away?
CD: Yo, we gave away 396 tickets, and I know that becuz Carson asked the same thing when I tol' him about all the food we done collected, so he called down to the ticket office to find out.
TJ: You mean he didn't know about the giveaway?
CD: Nah, but it wasn't no big deal, cuz we had a whole lotta tickets to go through before the game.
TJ: Wow... so what was his reaction when you told him?
CD: After he got off the phone with the ticket office, he got really quiet, for like a coupl'a minutes. And then he started cryin', yo, really softly. I think it was cuz he was really feelin' the emotion of all the devastation and loss that they be feelin' up in Fenton. So I just up and left his office, cuz I don't wanna see a grown man cry, you know what I'm sayin'? That's just some intimate stuff that I don't need to be seein', on tha real.
TJ: C-Deezy fa Sheezy, coach of the Deezies fa Sheezies, here on the Deezies Afterparty! We're gonna take a short break, and then take a moment to read from some of the emails that we've been getting. If you've got a question for C-Deezy, send it to us at deezies-afterparty at yahoo-dot-com. That's deezies-afterparty... all one word... at yahoo-dot-com. You're listening to the Deezies Afterparty on the Deezies Sportsradio Network!
TJ: We're back with the Deezies Afterparty. I'm Ty Jackson. here with C-Deezy fa Sheezy... Let's get right to the emails... Jim from Wixom wants to know what you think of the LaDainian Tomlinson trade that went down this weekend.
CD: You gotta be kiddin' me, right? Yo, who you think this be? You ain't gonna ask Michael Jordan after he win the NBA title about the Gus Macker tournament ovah in Springfield! You ain't gonna ask Tiger Woods after he win the PGA Championship what he done thought about Bob Hookslice's 40-over-par round! So why you askin' me about L-T goin' from one sorry-ass team to another? What I gotta say about that? It ain't even on my radar! This ain't the N'Sync Bye-Bye-Bye Show! This ain't the Stanley Steam Cleaning Hour! This is the DEEZIES AFTERPARTY! We talkin' about the Deezies, or we ain't talkin' fa sheezy!
TJ: Fair enough. We've got another email, this one from Justin in Marlette. He says, "I've been looking all over for more information, but I can't find anything about the movie that you're supposed to be in. Is it going to be another one of those things where you sit in your car with a camera and wait for people to stop jogging by?"
CD: Yo, the movie's called THUGTASTIC! And what you mean you cain't find nothin' about it? It's comin' out October 12th... that's 10-12-oh-7, and it's gonna be in every theater in every 'hood, so if you cain't find nothin' about it, you need to tell yo' theater that they need to start puttin' up the posters, cuz it's comin' soon, yo!
TJ: Speakin' of the movie, I heard you gonna be on the soundtrack!
CD: That's right, yo! They ain't finalized the soundtrack yet, but I gotta coupl'a joints that I be tryin' to get in on it. I got the theme song, "THUGTASTIC!"... that's gonna be on there. And then I got these other tracks... "What A Thug Know"... "Thug Love"... and "When Thug Cry"... I'm tryin' to get them on there too.
TJ: C-Deezy, showin' off some more talents! We've got one more... this one from Jason in Green Bay... he says that he's been doing hobby leagues for a few years now and has gotten pretty good at them, and he wants to know what you think of hobby leagues and how they've affected the game of football.
CD: Yo, I ain't never been in no hobby league, so I cain't speak on that. I ain't got no time for that sorta thing, on tha real. So, yo, I don't let none'a that affect me. But I gotta question... if you think you be so good at them hobby leagues, how come you don't be coachin' no real teams, yo? Hell, I don't know why some'a these teams don't be recruitin' some'a these guys. They gotta be better than some of the coaches we already got in the league, yo!
TJ: Actually, I heard that Coach B-Dub got his start in a hobby league.
CD: Yo, that explains a LOT, on tha real!
TJ: Before we go to break, Deezy, I gotta ask you... Ray Lewis just re-signed with the Deezies after being waived by Vic's K9 Kennel Club. What's it like, having someone like Ray back on the team?
CD: Yo, I'm still tryin' to figure it out. He was one'a our targets in tha draft, so when he got picked up, I took almost all of his plays outta my playbook, cuz cain't nobody do it like Ray, on tha real! He a playmaker like no otha'! So, yo, havin' him back, it's gonna be like a whole 'notha defense once he back out on the field.
TJ: C-Deezy fa Sheezy, talking about the return of Ray Lewis to the Deezies fa Sheezies. You're listening to the Deezies Afterparty on the Deezies Sportsradio Network.... we'll be right back.
(pre-recorded comments from Fenton Tornados wideout CHAD JOHNSON)
CJ: "You gotta take the big risks, to get the big celebrations... You should just throw in your growl towel now before you cats embarrass yourselves... Who they think they gonna stop me? I cain't even stop me... 85 in 0-7, it's all goin' down... Don't act like you don't know... Maybe you should put down the camera and get in the game."
(end pre-recorded comments)
TJ: That was Fenton Tornados superstar Chad Johnson, talking about their game next weekend against the Deezies fa Sheezies... C-Deezy, before we close, the Deezies are usually pretty good on the road, but they only won three of their eight away games last season. How do you normally approach a game like this, and how do you account for the team's lack of success on the road last season?
CD: Yo, we do the same way we always do, whether we be home or away. It be just as much of a motivator to hear thousands of fans booing us as it is to hear them cheer, cuz either way, they reactin' to what we be doin'. I ain't neva' approached our team as bein' one-dimensional, whether it be a team that only win on the road, or a team that air it out, or even a team full a' playmakers, cuz the Deezies be all that and a bag a' chips. The only difference to me is where I wake up, and which club I hit after the game, yo!
TJ: Okay! So are you ready to hit us with another one of your signature freestyles?
CD: Yo, I was born ready! Let's do this! (cue "Still D.R.E." instrumental) C-Deezy, y'all cain't see...
TJ: And that's gonna do it for this week. I'm Ty Jackson. The Deezies fa Sheezies make another trip north, this time to face the Fenton Tornados, and we'll have the game here on the Deezies Sportsradio Network. And don't forget to join us here next Wednesday for another edition of the Afterparty! One love!
