â†µMaking it rain is so, so done: 2008 is the year of making it hail, the baller solution to displaying your wealth intelligently in a recession economy. Didier Drogba, Chelsea's outstanding striker, celebrated his return from injury yesterday in economy-class style by throwing a coin into the crowd during their 5-4 loss to Burnley in the Carling Cup. â†µ
â†µDon't blame Drogba, though. He was merely returning the favor of making it hail upon those who made it hail upon him. â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥In a statement on Chelsea's website, Drogba said: "I tried to celebrate the goal and I received some things at me. â†µâ‡¥â†µDrogba did not apologize for a one-fingered salute he gave the crowd, however, though he may be fined and/or suspended for that, too. Don't miss the truly important bit in this story, though: making it hail has arrived. Drogba's broken the seal on it, so get on the bandwagon while you can. Making it hail is here, and ballers better get on this while it's still hot. â†µ
â†µâ‡¥"The big mistake I did was to throw it back so if someone was hurt I just want to apologise for it." â†µâ‡¥â†µ
â†µA real baller never uses pennies, though; strictly dollar coins, and if you're purple ribbon baller approved, it's nothing but Sacagawea dollars in your strip club survival kit. When your grandchildren ask you why exotic dancers perform behind plexiglass, you can tell them you were there when the whole thing started. â†µâ†µ
