UPDATED 10/16/2009 Stephen A. Smith Sets The Record Straight
Thank god, cause I never thought this man could really mean what he said. Like me, he was just more dumbfounded at the fact NFL players actually came together to further a cause. If only they would do it more often. I extended to Stephen A. Smith a personal apology, which of course, as a man of integrity and personal acountability, he accepted.

Let’s face it: when Oregon running back LaGarrette Blount dropped Boise State defensive lineman Byron Hout to his knees with a hard right to the chin on Thursday night, everybody knew it would be a HUGE story because it was a “black guy” hitting a “white guy.” Our country always has and always will be obsessed with any competition which pits the “races” against one another (see Obama v. McCain; Jesse Owens vs. “The Master Race” in the 1936 Berlin Olympics; Larry Bird vs. Magic Johnson).

Though Euro-American media usually ignore the antics of “white” criminals in sports, I would have thought all the “Gambino Crime Family,” “wise-guy,” and “getting whacked” mafia mess associated with this one would cause mass salivation by the ESPN’s and CNN’s of the world.
UPDATED 6/11/2009: WARRANT ISSUED FOR LEAF’S ARREST
Apparently this warrant was issued on the same day the indictment was issued. As I said when the charges were announced, this guy is hiding in Canada somewhere, likely a remote area on the Yukon Territories. Again, he should have enough money to just disappear, but then again, he is obviously not very bright, considering the nature of these charges. Meanwhile, ESPN is reporting the other former NFL quarterback with legal issues, Michael Vick, had a bowl of Apple Jacks this morning and brushed his teeth with Aqua Fresh toothpaste.
It is sad that our country has come to this. First it was Plaxico Burress in New York, and now Marshawn Lynch in Culver City, California. Though the European-American media will call these guys thugs, hood, and various “n-words,” attacks by thug police all across the country are prompting “black” men to arm themselves. The Euro-American sports media (especially talk radio) will weigh in, especially (and predictably) Colin Cowherd and Dan Patrick of ESPN radio, and minimize or, more likely, completely ignore this ugly phenomenon in the United States. Thug police, badged gangsters, or whatever … Read Entire Article
“If you’re a fan of Major League Baseball, I think it tarnishes an entire era, to some degree. And it’s unfortunate because I think there were a lot of ballplayers who played it straight.”
Sure the few guys who didn’t cash in during the “Steroid Era” played it straight. In this world, you are presented with few opportunities at financial peace and prosperity. You have to give Alex Rodriguez credit for basically doing everything he humanly could to EARN that
Prentice Williams, a former Arizona State University football player from 1967-1970, has filed a complaint in the United States District Court in Phoenix. The lawsuit, filed on January 26, names several individuals from the Tempe City Attorney’s Office, including former senior Assistant City Attorney Andrew Ching and current Assistant City Attorney Kara Stanek. The lawsuits appears to be another move in a long battle Williams has been engaged in with the City of Tempe and its police department. Williams was also the plaintiff in a 2006 federal case involving several Tempe Police Officers, including Mike … Read Entire Article
What the hell is going on? It is now 5:19 pm Pacific Time, and the Red Sox/Rays game was supposed to be on 15 minutes ago! The game DID in fact commence, as I see its in the middle of the 1st inning on several online scoreboards. Has this ever happened in television sports history? I think the worst I’ve ever seen was NBC and the “OJ white Bronco” being broadcast while GAME 5 of the NBA Finals, Knicks @ Rockets, was shown in a tiny corner window of the television screen.
