Tony Gwynn Has Cancer

I heard today that one of my childhood idols, Tony Gwynn, has cancer.

See that bulge in his lip above?

That's dip. ...

And that's why he has cancer.

Gwynn admitted today that dipping during and after his playing days gave him cancer.

That sucks. But it is unfortunately something that many people in America struggle with...

That's why when Tony Gwynn recovers from his fight with salivary cancer, he needs to use his national status and tell kids and adults not to dip. And show them what can happen if you do dip.

Dip is just as addictive and dangerous as smoking cigarettes. The thing with dip though is that people usually associate those who dip with ball players or those who live in the South.

That's not the case at all.

Dipping is something that unfortunately people of all ages do, and believe me, it is just as tough to quit it as it is to quit smoking cigarettes. Maybe harder.

I wish Tony Gwynn the best in his fight against cancer and hope that he lives through this and becomes a spokesperson to urge people not to dip.

he answer Beats by Dr. Dre by Monster is yes. French fashion house has confirmed the Brit model as the face of their Boy Chanel handbag collection Monster Beats by Dr. Dre. [Karl Lagerfeld] a crush with this unique, charismatic dude, who's both one and musician, during the photo shoot several months ago, Chanel told WWD Beats by Dr. Dre. This previously unforeseen alliance finally became self-evident Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. Alice Dellal represents the most perfect incarnation off which is unique in regards to the Boy Chanel handbag collection, which strives [to be] not even close conformist notions of femininity Monster Beats by Dr. Dre.
Yep, Dellal is anything but conventional. And even her trademark punk-rock uniform, the petite 24-year-old is actually a drummer while in the band Thrush Metal and will remain found larking for the streets based in london with Pixie Geldof Beats by Dr. Dre 2012. Shes far from blonde bombshell Blake Lively, whos the existing face of Chanels Mademoiselle range, but Lagerfeld is acknowledged for his eclectic taste, previously casting Lily Allen for the Cocoon bag range during the past year. Even greater, Alice's androgyny will work brilliantly with the 'Boy' collection. How refreshing.
