”He Probably Would’ve Died”
Game discussed his involvement in helping to get an injured cyclist medical attention. The incident made headlines weeks ago and the Compton rapper told VIBE TV that he saw that the man needed help and revealed that he felt strange calling 911.
“I was just driving home from the studio at like 5 o’clock in the morning two nights ago, and there was a cyclist that got hit by a car,” he recalled. “He was laying out there and thought he was dead because he wasn’t moving, he was responsive. I ended up calling 911, first time I ever called 911 in my life, kinda awkward, but I had to do it. I called 911, they came and in 10-15 minutes, if I hadn’t done that he probably would’ve died.”
”I Couldn’t Just Keep Driving…”
The Game became a local hero this week. The Los Angeles native saw a bicyclist injured as he was driving home from the studio; the man was lying face down in the street with his bike on top of him. Game told TMZ that he after he pulled over, he noticed the man was unresponsive and called 911.
He waited with the man until parademics arrived and the injured cyclist was taken to a local hospital.
“I couldn’t just keep driving seeing a man in pain with his head on the ground,” Game said. “If that was me in that situation, I’d want someone to do the same thing.”
Sir Paul Smith’s latest Spring/Summer 2012 collection incorporates embroidered cyclist motifs onto its khaki shorts and navy chinos that has any wearer sporting the love of the sport.

If it weren’t for a love of cycling at an early age, we wouldn’t have one of the world’s preeminent designers known for managing 12 different collections with a range of equally colorful and traditional European-made products. At age 17, Paul Smith was involved in a terrible cycling accident that put him in a hospital for 6 months of recovery, but this experience also introduced him to a group of friends who inspired him to express himself as an artist. After a couple years of work, Smith and his now wife opened up their first shop in 1970 and, within a few years, began to appear in shows in Paris. Fortunately for us, he never stopped and the rest is history.
Demonstrating that Sir Smith still has a deep love for cycling, he has designed a 100% cotton chino short featuring an embroidered cyclist pattern spread throughout the piece. The two front pockets as well as the two in the back are lined with an ivory/blue broad stripe pattern while the wood-like button fly slips through a purple stitch. Check out more looks at this signature Smith short after the jump before heading to The Goodhood Store to pick up a pair.
