This is my last post here at FNsports. Hey I tried, but I just couldn't keep it up. The field negro blog, my legal career, and various community involvements, have made it almost impossible for me to keep up with this blog.
I have learned that I love politics even more than sports, (which is saying something) and as a result, sports just doesn't inspire me to post about it over here anymore.
So play hard, play fair, and always watch the score.
Even field Negroes like to play.

That was a great Super Bowl game. Finally a game that lived up to all the hype.
I was at a Super Bowl party, but I left at halftime. There were quite a few Obamaholics there (the "O" man was in Delaware today by the way), but sometimes I just want to watch the game and not talk politics.
I guess the Spytriots won't be making history after all, and it couldn't have happened to a bunch of nicer guys.
The only down side of all this is that I will have to listen to these stinking Giant's fans here in Philly for the next year.
Here are some more of my thoughts:
All the commercials pretty much sucked. Except of course for the one with Naomi Campbell (I don't even remember what it was for) where she was dancing with those lizards.
Doesn't Jordin Sparks and Alicia Keys make the whole melting pot thing seem like a pretty good idea?
I lked Joe Buck's hook up. And I feel bad for Randy Moss, I would love to see him get a ring before his career is over.
I could watch that catch by David Tyree over and over again.
I think I won a square in my office pool. Of course I will be giving the money to charity.......OK that's bullshit, I will be spending that bad boy on lunch this week.
Doesn't the MVP, Eli Manning, remind you of Gomer Pyle?
Finally, let's hope that next year my "Iggles" will be holding up that Vince Lombardi Trophy.

since last night, and I feel a need to get the shit off my chest before I head out to my nine to five plantation.
First, I heard former NFL great Jim Brown on a local sports talk radio program last night, and I am going to have to revoke Jim's field Negro card for now. The shit he said about the Rutgers basketball dust up with Don Imus wasn't cool, and although I have some respect left for Mr. Brown, I have to call him on it. Mr. Brown basically said that the Rutgers controversy was no big deal, and he thought Don Imus was basically right. He thought the women from Tennessee were pretty and the ones from Rutgers were not. Brown went on to take issue with the modern African American athlete and their apathy towards political ans social issues (we agree on that one) and was all over Tiger Woods (more on him in a minute) for the way he handled this latest...ahem ahem, little racial problem in A-merry-ca. To Brown, the Golf Chanel's host an dher lynching comment is far more serious than the Rutgers incident and should have be treated as such.
Again, I think Brown was a great player, and I love the work he did with inner city gangs in L.A. But Jim never had the greatest reputation when it comes to the treatment of women, and I think some of his previous issues might have tainted his perspective here.
Now the second thing that keeps bothering me, is this shit with Tiger and the Golf Channel. I honestly thought the shit was over. Girlfriend got suspended for two weeks, Tiger's sorry ass basically said through his agent that it was no big deal, and A-merry-ca was ready to move on.
But then some dumb ass Golf magazine chooses to put a noose on their cover, and Tiger, being Tiger, felt the need to make yet another statement saying it's no big deal ("Kelly [Tilghman]is a friend and I saw no malicious intent in her remark..."). Yeah whatever Tiger. I used to cheer for your sorry ass in all those tournaments, because I admired your skills. But fuck you! I hope you never win another tournament on the PGA Tour. And real field Negroes like Vijay Singh, out drives and out putts your sorry ass every weekend from here on out.
Oh, and another thing, can we get another spokes person besides Al Sharpton for these types of issues? I think he is becoming irrelevant.
I'm off to fight this Philly traffic.

Can someone put a fork in the Sixers please? What is it now six in a row we have lost? But what the hell, let's just shoot for a number one pick at this point.
So the Spytriots are 17-0, that's impressive. Even though I know they caught some breaks along the way (think poor referees) but you have to be good to be in a position to win in the first place. I really thought Jacksonville had a shot at beating them last night, but they hung tough and won. I am starting to believe more and more than Green Bay might be legit. That rookie running back of theirs is the real deal. And Favre looks like he is enjoying throwing to his own players again.
I wonder how those fans down in "blue grass" country feel now that their Wildcats are 7-7? Be careful what you wish for is all I have to say about that. You ran Tubby out of town for this?
I still think Memphis and not North Carolina is the best college basketball team in the country. Derrick Rose is the real deal and is the best point guard in the country. (Sorry Me. Gordon) Don't sleep in UCLA or (god I hate to say this) Duke either.
Congrats on winning the National Championship LSU! My wife is an alum, so I will give you your props. I suspect that there will more where those came from in the coming years. Go on ahead and put yourself up there with Oklahoma, Michigan, and Ohio State as college power houses in this country. (Notice Penn State is not on that list) Your incoming freshmen class looks good!
Speaking of good looking freshmen classes; Notre Dame probably the best incoming class in the country. Now if Charlie Wies can't win this crop we will know that he is a fraud for sure.
Hey, what ever happened to Norm Nixon?

We will miss your three point shooting, but nothing else.
I know you are from Nebraska, but moving to Utah has got to be hard on you.
I must say that I love all the points in these bowl games. I guess West Virginia were for real. You just can't coach speed folks. If it were not for that stumble against Pitt, we might be crowning them National Champs and not LSU or Ohio State. Pat White will play on Sundays. Maybe not as a quarterback, but he will play.
I think Roger Clemens is lying. First he didn't shoot up, then he did. Why would you have to shoot up painkillers and B-12 vitamins? Come on "Rocket" you are better than that. And my advise to you would be to plead the fifth when you go before congress. Marion Jones and Barry Bonds could be heading to jail because they did not listen to that advise.
What ever happened to Mookie Wilson?

I caught the Nevada New Mexico bowl game yesterday, and WTF is up with those ugly unis the wolf pack wear?
Come on guys, you are trying to build your program, not tear it down. You can't attract recruits with those ugly duds. Players like to look good on Saturdays too.
Of course I am not one to talk; as an Eagles fan, I am still trying to get over those ugly ass throw backs my team sported against the Lions earlier this year.
And for you soccer fans out there/ New Castle United still gets the nod for the ugliest unis with their ugly ass prison striped black and whites. The look like eleven referees running around out there. Putrid!
Finally, can somebody beat the Patriots please?
This shit is getting old.
