Jalen Rose and Magic Johnson Make Charity ‘Bet’ on MSU-UM Game
A day after Charles Barkley said ‘twitter is for losers’ I found a nice exchange to contradict the big guy: trash talk between Jalen Rose and Magic Johnson regarding the MSU/UM game this weekend that could result in a nice donation to charity.
Rose (left) went to University of Michigan (Wolverines): Magic (right) went to Michigan State (Spartans).
Magic: ‘I’d like to officially call out Jalen Rose, Chris Webber, Braylon Edwards and his dad about what we’re betting on MSU-UM game this weekend…My Spartans will beat the Wolverines this weekend!”
Jalen (to Magic): ‘I propose that if Michigan wins Sat at MSU that you would visit the Jalen Rose Learning Academy in Detroit in 2011 wearing a UM hoops jersey?! Your move!’
Magic: ‘I’ll agree to visit JRLAD in a UM jersey if you agree to tweet a pic of you in an MSU jersey writing a check to my foundation…you’ll look good in Green & White. #Spartans’
Jalen: ‘Yes indeed…DONE DEAL! #Go-Blue’
So I guess really Barkley was right on some level-there will be a loser this weekend-one that will be writing a check to charity or one who will be visiting inner city kids in Detroit. Gotta love Twitter.
As always, thanks for reading~
