P. Diddy’s son, Justin Combs, is a redshirt junior defensive back for the UCLA Bruins football team. According to news reports, P. Diddy confronted the team’s strength coach on Monday by yelling in his face and throwing a kettle bell at him getting P. Diddy arrested on assault charges. This is obviously a PR nightmare for P. Diddy, but it has also thrown the parents of other UCLA football players into a frenzy on whether or not they should let P. Diddy come to the annual season kickoff tailgate party. Below is an email chain of the parents discussing the matter.

Hi Ya'll,

First off, as the Chairwoman of the UCLA Football Parents Association I'd like to welcome you to the 2015 Bruin Football season! I know the boys are working hard and we parents have a lot of fun football games, fundraisers, and potlucks to look forward to, so there should be plenty of excitement out there in Bruin-land!

Shifting gears, we have to find some way to make sure P. Diddy doesn't come to the Somethin's Bruin Kickoff Tailgate this year! He threw a kettle bell at one of the coaches so the coaches will probably be acting all weird around him and that is not the kind of atmosphere we want at this event. I trust you all agree with me on that point so let's brainstorm a few ways to trick him into not coming to Somethin's Bruin this year. This is our kickoff event and we want to set the tone for this to be a successful season.

Also, please mention which covered dish you are planning on bringing! As you all know, I'll be bringing the white wine! It's gonna be a hoot, ya'll!

Best,
Deb Sanders
Chairwoman UCLA Football Parent's Association

Hey Parents!

Can't wait for Somethin's Bruin, look forward to it every year (since Jeremy was a freshman way back in 2011!). My wife JoAnn's bringing her famous Alabama Peach Pie!! Mm-mm doggy this is gonna be a great pot luck.

One way to get P. Diddy to not come to Somethin's Bruin is to require parents to bring homemade dishes. He only brought some store bought Chips Ahoy cookies to contribute last year. I get it, he's busy, but EVERYone's busy this time of year! And isn't he a millionaire? At least spring for an ice cream cake or better!

Can't wait to see everyone! Go Bruins! Let's make it to state!

Sincerely,
Joel P.

Ya'll!

I'm bringing my famous hickory loaf with burnt dumpling'ed potatoes!

Let's tell Diddy that there won't be music at Somethin's Bruin this year. I'm pretty sure the only reason he comes is to play tracks from his old albums. I hate how he always asks you what you think of the song after he plays it and it stinks to have to stand around and nod your head and say "I like this one's beat." He's so needy!

Otherwise can't wait to eat all the yummy food (and drink some of Deb's famous white wine!)! I have a good feeling our boys are gonna make it past regionals this year! Go Bruins!

Hi there Bruin Parents!

Can't wait for Somethin's Bruin (and Deb's white wine that everyone's been raving about!)! I'll be bringing some smoked pork belly and a wet potato salad, so bring your appetites!

I actually think P. Diddy should come to the cookout. Remember two years ago when the team couldn't afford new equipment and the boys were going to have to play in homemade shoulder pads and helmets made out of pots and pans? P. Diddy stepped up and funded equipment for the whole team. Just saying', maybe we should cut him some slack this time.

Yours in Bruin Football,
Peggy, David's wife

Hello,

My wife told me to email to say that we are bringing a cold cut meat tray.

Hi parents!

Can't wait for Somethin's Bruin! We'll be bringing 75 racks of BBQ ribs and a few chopped pickles.

Maybe we should just be honest with P. Diddy and tell him that we don't want him to come because we think it would be awkward and that we don't like his music or the food that he's brought to potlucks in the past. Or we could tell him it's on Friday instead of Saturday, he doesn't seem like one to keep a calendar anyway.

So excited for this season to get started, it's States or bust this year for the Bruins! Save some white wine for me!

Sincerely,
Deirdre Thompson

Wassup ya'll,

Penny Blunton (Ryan's mom) here and I can't be more excited for the first kickoff on the road to States and also for Somethin's Bruin 2015, I'm bringing plenty of jars of mayonnaise. One question: Isn't P. Diddy on this email listserv?

Hey ya'll,

Sorry P. Diddy! I mean, we get it, some of the coaches can be real harda**es (oops, pardon my sailor mouth but I've already dipped into my white wine!) but you know what you did is wrong. I don't know if you're still going out, but J.Lo is definitely invited, please send word to her!

See everyone at the first game! Bruins #1!
