Charles In Charge: The Birth of the New People’s Champ


And then a Hero Comes Along…♠

“I knew something was wrong when a little, pretty white girl ran into a black man’s arms. Something is wrong here. Dead giveaway. DEEEEAD GIVEAWAY!” — Charles Ramsey.

DETROIT (JSC) — In this internet crazy age, things go viral faster than Chicken Pox in a pre-school. It is virtually impossible during a given day to avoid the latest internet pablum that spreads like wildfire. Whether it’s a stray #hashtag on Twitter, to an innocuous trending topic, to one of a multitude of ridiculously hilarious memes on Facebook & Instagram, to some ridiculous YouTube video trend that gets way out of control (see: Shake, Harlem), you couldn’t avoid this crap if you tried. Some of the most notorious are the man-on-the-street TV interviews that eventually find their way onto YouTube. I think we all know someone who uncorks the obnoxiously overplayed “Ain’t nobody got time fo’ dat!” from last year’s Tennessee internet “superstar” Sweet Brown. Others remember Antoine Dodson, 2011’s internet champ, getting everywhere with the “Hide Yo’ Kids. Hide Yo’ Wife” and managing to parlay it into such things as free tickets to a UFC Event at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Every so often, however, some absolute Gold falls from the heavens. Something that is the perfect combination of topical, unbelievable, and brimming with soundbytes. That’s where Charles Ramsey comes in. This dude’s startling act of heroism yesterday in Cleveland — and the subsequent interview for the ages — has made him an unexpected superstar and proved that regardless of who you are or how you look, you can still be a true champion. Let’s Go.

DETROIT — Greetings everyone. For just over a month I have been littering this site with bloggage that was ranging through different topics. However, every blog has stuck to one subject. In the last few days, my mind has been kinda scrambled and I have a lot of crap to get out there, but none of it (save for one, that you will read later) could conceivably carry an entire blog. So it’s time for my first of likey “Random Thoughts” blogs. This time around, it’ll be a list of stuff that has been grinding my proverbial gears, except for this first one.
