Can you believe this mess? I KNOW that there was some serious money on the line with this Superbowl. People were gambling big time. But this nonsense with the lights out….I wonder how long that was planned out? And who was paid? Interesting that once the Ravens were in place to demolish SF, all of a sudden the lights went out to give them the opportunity to pull it together. It was like a boxer being given extra time to recover.

WE WON ANYWAY! Okay? As a native of Baltimore, I really don’t appreciate what happened. CONGRATS Ravens. You EARNED this!

As a child, I LOVED these guys. My older siblings would turn the television to the Globetrotters every time they were on. There was always anticipation in our home when there was a hint that they would be on t.v.

It’s black history month….but we should honor those who have made history all the time, not during a certain month.

Happy that the Globetrotters are still going strong! They have been around as an organization since the early 1900′s. I’m so happy they have endured and wish them many more years of positivity and entertainment.

Look at this video:

Okay, maybe I’m wrong. Tell me if I’m wrong. But this beautiful young lady has chosen to box her way out of the “hood” as opposed to studying her way out. I still believe that education is the way out of any situation.

I shudder to think what her face will look like in five years.

YES, there are some sports figures and black men who are doing positive things in the community. Check this out:

At 22 college campuses across the country, there are 79 students who may not otherwise be there if not for the generosity of Braylon Edwards.
As a Cleveland Browns rookie in 2005, Edwards announced he’d give $10,000 in scholarships to 100 area eighth-graders if they could graduate high school with over a 2.5 GPA and 15 hours community service. Of the 100 who were afforded the opportunity, 79 met the criteria and have begun their first year of college. Many are attending Ohio universities, but the schools represented spread across the country and include Harvard, Cornell and Johns Hopkins. SOURCE
