NFL Sunday Week 4: Brett Favre Throws for Six, Terrell Owens Keeps Talking….

Sup with your boy TO D? I know he’s a beast but he’s gotta keep it together when he feels he’s not utilized properly. Did anyone see the look on his face when he sat alone on the sideline? TO, you are three and one. Quit crying and catch one of the 17 passes Romo threw your way. Didn’t you run the ball twice? They are trying to get you the ball.

Chill brotha chill.

Andy Reid is going to hear it in Philly this week. What was he thinking running three straight times on the goal line even though he has Donovan McNabb under center? I know Donovan is hurt, but he’s a big dude Andy. Run the sneak!

Brett Favre throws for six tds. Damn dude. You sure know how to keep your name on the front page huh?

Kurt Warner cannot throw that hospital ball at that point in the game. He’s lucky Anquan is going to be alright. Gaston if you do that, you better run like I’m chasin’ you.

Tennessee is for real. Do not sleep on the defense or Albert Haynesworth and that front four will make sure you don’t wake up.

New Orleans has a prolific offense, but it seems like the offenses they play against are as well.

Here’s the scores. Ron Glover will write the recap next week. I’m just a sub.

Ron Glover’s NFL Predictions: Week 4

Posted in Blogroll on September 27th, 2008 by Ron Glover

I’m gonna deem this as Throwback Weekend in the NFL to honor our game of the week and one of the NFL’s most bitter rivalries. The Washington Redskins visit Texas stadium for the final time to take on the Dallas Cowboys. Other throwback games with a little less flair include: Browns v. Bengals, Raiders v. Chargers, and Chiefs v. Broncos.

Transcript of 2008 Presidential Debate Between Barack Obama and John McCain

Posted in Blogroll on September 27th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

John McCain never once looked Barack Obama’s way. Surprised?

What were your thoughts on the debate? What is John McCain hiding under that rough maverick exterior that he seemed as if he was a tax spending world away? Who was he speaking to? The public? The press?

Friday Fire: Is Black Sports Writing Gone Forever?

Posted in Blogroll on September 26th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

Click on the pic to find out who this great man was.

Coming on the heels of Cole Wiley’s interview and speaking with many journalists on the subject, one has to wonder if the Black voice is dead in the context of sports writing. I could write 10,000 words on the subject obviously, but a discussion here should have a similar impact.

Jaquizz Rodgers and Oregon State Rock Shock #1 USC

Before I went to work last night, I happened across the number one ranked USC Trojans. James McKnight is a monster, so I kept the game on even though I wanted to see what was going on with Washington Mutual (DOW has dropped a moderate 115 points after a half hour of trading).

Man, who the hell is that little dude punching USC in the mouth with Pop’s fist?

Ralph Wiley’s Light Touches the Son: The Interview With Cole Wiley Part II

Posted in Blogroll, Kenny Smith on September 25th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

For Part II of Cole’s interview the focus shifts back and forth between writing and film making. There is one issue I wanted to help clear up between Cole and Scoop Jackson. I hope you put both of their words in their proper perspective without prejudice. Cole also speaks about the difficulties of mastering the art of script, and wonders why so many are quick to call themselves writers. As Cole and Scoop ask, where’s the hard work to put yourself in such a category? Cole is very eloquent, talented and also ambitious enough to inspire everyone. There’s no question in my mind Cole Wiley will be a force in film making for years to come. We should all be proud.

Ron Glover’s Week 4 NFL Power Rankings

Posted in Blogroll on September 25th, 2008 by Ron Glover

Ronnie Brown was the catalyst last week as the Miami Dolphins shocked the New England Patriots 38-13. Brown played a part in all five of Miami touchdowns as he ran for four and threw for one.

This week’s Power Rankings have three teams from the same division at the top of the charts, the NFC East has proven to be the best division in professional American team sports. I think some teams’ rankings will warrant discussion, I’ve gotta admit 11-25 was tough.

Leave Josh Alone

Posted in Blogroll on September 22nd, 2008 by davezirin

DZ is at it again doing what he does so well…

Dallas Mavericks All-Star Josh Howard has been raked over the coals of public opinion this week for daring to say what more than a few athletes think. He was caught on someone’s cell phone camera saying that he doesn’t stand for the national anthem because “I don’t celebrate this [expletive]. I’m black.” Judging by fan and media reaction, you would have thought he was barbecuing some bald eagle over a flaming pit of American flags. You would, given the peals of outrage, never know that there’s been perhaps some more pressing news in the papers this week.

Friday Fire: What’s Your Favorite Movie of All Time?

Posted in Blogroll, Kenny Smith on September 19th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

I have a post about race that will be up later in the afternoon. The Cole Wiley interview will be posted early next week after I receive a couple of quotes. Things have been getting real serious around here, so I wanted to lighten it up a bit and get your favorite movie choice. I have many favorites. The top three are Spike Lee joints: Malcolm X, Do the Right Thing and Mo’ Better Blues (in that order). Menace II Society, Aliens, Strange Days, Rosewood, Training Day, Goodfellas, Less Than Zero, Love Jones, Juice, Return of the Jedi, Mission to Mars, The Best Man, Dead Presidents, Friday, Friday After Next, Belly, Sugar Hill, Pulp Fiction, Gia, Full Metal Jacket and Predator are some of the others. I also love a Terrance Blanchard score.

Ron Glover’s Week 3 NFL Power Rankings

Posted in Blogroll on September 18th, 2008 by Ron Glover

Jason Campbell went 7 for 7 for 157 yards in the fourth quarter to lead the Redskins from nine-points down past the New Orleans Saints 29-24. Campbell finished 24/36 for 321 yards and a touchdown. Honorable mention: Aaron Rodgers 24/38 328 yards and three touchdowns in a victory over the Detroit Lions. And Brandon Marshall, 18 receptions 166 yards and a touchdown in a win over the San Diego Chargers.

Week 2 was one of the most entertaining weeks in recent memory, there were defensive struggles, offensive onslaughts and a head zebra that may have lost a few stripes. Just another week in the NFL.

OJ Simpson: The Minstrel’s Final Show

Posted in Blogroll on September 17th, 2008 by Ron Glover

My dad used to say that, “You don’t believe that sh*t stinks until your nose is in it.” In the case of O.J. Simpson, he’s up to his neck in it once more.

Double Jeopardy means that a man cannot be judged for the same crime twice. But don’t tell me that those twelve jurors don’t have that murder acquittal on their minds.

Could “The Juice” may be let loose again?
