Not everyone is in a holiday spirit this year.

*
My goodness, don't you people in New York have any shame? Why are you still whining about the D-Jack run to end the Eagles Giants game last week? Stop it; it's almost Christmas for crying out loud! Not letting go after a heartbreaking loss is not what the Christmas spirit is about.

I know who probably won't be in the Christmas spirit this year; August Busch IV. My man might have some "splaining" to do:

"ST. LOUIS – For generations, the Busches of St. Louis were the first family of American beer-making, the city's most devoted boosters, and bearers of the most famous name in town. But they have also been touched by scandal, tragedy and allegations of reckless behavior.

Now the Busch name is in the headlines again, this time after an aspiring young model was found dead in the gated home of August Busch IV, the former Anheuser-Busch CEO and heir to the Budweiser fortune. The death is under investigation.

The woman, Adrienne Nicole Martin, was Busch's girlfriend and there was "absolutely nothing suspicious" about her death, said Busch's attorney, Art Margulis.

The 27-year-old woman was dead when police and paramedics responded to a 911 call from Busch's estate Sunday in Huntleigh, a wealthy St. Louis suburb. St. Louis County forensic administrator Suzanne McCune said there were no signs of trauma or illness, and an overdose was among the possible causes of death.

Busch IV, 46, joined the family business in the mid-1980s and worked his way up. He was chief of marketing when the brewer rolled out many of its most popular TV ads, including the Budweiser frogs.

When Busch IV took over as chief executive upon his father's retirement in 2006, Anheuser-Busch owned roughly half the U.S. beer market thanks to its two giant brands, Budweiser and Bud Light. Two years later, Anheuser Busch Cos. was sold to Belgian company InBev in a $52 billion deal that created the world's largest brewer.

With the merger, Busch IV turned out to be the last in a long line of Busches to run the company, whose roots dated to the mid-1800s. He is a member of the InBev board but no longer has any role in day-to-day operations.

"He had a reputation as a bit of a risk taker," said Terry Ganey, a veteran journalist who co-wrote the 1991 book "Under the Influence: The Unauthorized Story of the Anheuser-Busch Dynasty." `'That is demonstrated by the fact that he drove powerboats, motorcycles, jet planes and helicopters and participated in sports that could do him some physical harm. But as an executive, I think he operated in his father's shadow."

InBev maintained St. Louis as its U.S. headquarters after the merger, but many in St. Louis felt the region had lost an icon that rivaled the Gateway Arch and baseball's Cardinals — which used to be owned by the Busch family.

"Rightly or wrongly, it will always be recalled that he was the CEO when the company was sold," Ganey said.

Trouble seemed to follow Busch well before he got out of the family business.

In 1983, Busch IV, then a 20-year-old University of Arizona student, left a bar near Tucson, Ariz., with a 22-year-old woman. His black Corvette crashed, and the woman, Michele Frederick, was killed. Busch was found hours later at his home. He suffered a fractured skull and claimed he had amnesia. After a seven-month investigation, authorities declined to press charges, citing a lack of evidence.

Oh oh August, it looks like "the ghost of Christmas past" might e coming back to haunt you.

Finally, there is one other person who is not in the holiday spirit; it's Renardo Sidney of the Mississippi State University basketball team. Renardo is not a good dude. Fighting your teammate in the stands at a holiday tournament? WTF? You two clowns embarrassed yourselves, the university, and your families.

Santa, please skip Renardo and Elgin's house tomorrow morning.

PilotX, "Yep, I'm an atheist. Jury's still out about the low down part."

You are going straight to hell. Isn't that low down enough for you?

All of that fighting makes Xmas just another day for them. Negroes really hate Negroes. Self-hatred and lack of self-worth and dignity is still the norm in the black race.

Speaking of Blacks fighting Blacks...Field, I think you need to check your Killadelphia meter for accuracy. It looks a little low.

PilotX said...

If people like you are in the so called heaven then I'll gladly treck my ass to your imaginary hell. You guys are funny, still playing with imaginary friends as adults. Maybe one day I'll pick an invisible friend, just not yours, he seems a bit too mentally unstable. I do like Thor and he's got a movie coming out.

Not really. My count might be a body or two off, but I have been out of town so you will have to excuse that.

Rottnkid, NSangoma likes to pick at us black folks. He/she doesn't bother me anymore.

BTW, I think he/she is black.

Now now Pilot X, this is the day baby Jesus was born to us. Play nice. :)

And speaking of....Merry Jesus birthday to all of you!!!!

Thanks for all the wonderful greetings and kind words of encouragement.

That is serious FNB on your part.

Apropos the Giants, my favorite quote of this past week came from one of them.

Looking down at the floor, he said, in a soft tone of voice:

"We don't like to lose when people are watching."

August Busch IV is white, rich, heterosexual, Christian and male, so he need not worry.

Mack Lyons said...

I'd comment, but I'm too damn busy enjoying the 3 inch snowfall we got down here today. Merry Christmas.

PilotX, "Sorry bout that Field. Happy Festivus to all! Gotta rest up for Kwanzaa."

You must be an atheist.

PilotX said...

Uhhhhhh, anon your reading conprehension is getting better but keep working. Hooked on Phonics is your Festivus gift right after I destroy you in the feats of strength.

Then again anon according to Hugh Everett in some universe you are the atheist and I'm the Christian going to the heavens. Also in some universe you might be smart and good-looking but I'm somehow doubting that as a possibility in any branch of infinite possibilities.

Anonymous said...

Ahhh, Hugh Everret the man who proposed the many-worlds interpretation.

I sure agree with him, reading you I am sure you are from an alternate dimension. You certainly dont correlate to this world. Thats it liberals are all biopic gel from the universe of myopia and self molestation.

I somehow think that no matter what universe you travail traits about you follow and you appear the same. I.E you are certain to appear like a blob of dog shit in all universes. Complete with the appropriate color.

PilotX said...

Ooooh, and the needed dose of racism sprinkled in at the end. I can handle the required hypocrisy and short-sightedness necessary to be a conservative but when we cross the line into blatant and inappropriate racism I have say good-bye.

Oh get off your lazy ass high horse. It has nothing to do with your race you idjut. Hypocricy and no sightedness are the liberal standard fare. As for the blob of shit, I guess you equate your "race" to that. But it is metaphoric you silly clown. You get bested and have to retreat to oh noes...deys racist. How pathetic.
