YouTube Video Commentator Pepepoo9 Drops Some Knowledge On The Serena Williams Controversy

Lots of juicy video goodness from this weekend in sports. Obviously, everyone has heard about what occurred during the Serena Williams-Kim Clijsters semifinal match on Saturday night at the U.S. Open, so I won’t bother you with the details other than Williams was fined $10,500 for her antics,  $500 for slamming her racket and $10,000 for berating the official, with more fines and/or suspensions possible now that the USTA has opened an investigation into the matter.

To be honest, I didn’t know how to feel about the whole controversy until I stumbled across this YouTube video by Pepepoo9. To say he has a keen insight (as well as a deft editing hand) on this matter would be an understatement.

I’m not entirely sure what I just saw, but I have only one word regarding that analysis. Strong. And the whole “hell bit” at the end was certainly a biting commentary on our culture. How? I have no idea – it just was.

Look out Kige, Pepepoo9 is in the house and he is bringing it.
