Tim Hardaway, don't worry you're too ugly.

Former basketball all-star, Tim Hardaway, was banned by the NBA for making very disparaging remarks about gays. Kudos for NBA commissioner, David Stern. First of all, how can African Americans disassociate themselves from the plight of homosexuals. Consider, it was just sixty years ago blacks were the group to hate. For example, 14-year old, Megar Evers, was beat to death for whistling at an attractive white woman. African Americans, moreover, were ridiculed, discriminated against, and segregated from society. His constitutional rights, well the KKK uses it to encouraged hatred against blacks, the Skinheads hide behind it to promote racism against Jews, and the Aryan Nation uses it to promote sexism against women. Stern, meanwhile, was just taking the necessary precautions to protect his league from a man whose vitriolic comments aligned him with racists. Hardaway said that he was homophobic and hated gays. He, furthermore, stated he would feel uncomfortable dressing in front of a homosexual. As for perversion, more heterosexuals molest and rape children than gays, and as ugly as Tim Hardaway is, he shouldn't worry about any man or woman checking him out.

Colts are just better.

For the first time in pro football history, two African American football coaches will face off for the most coveted prize in American sports: the Vince Lombardi Trophy. The Chicago Bears, Lovie Smith, and the Indianapolis, Colts, Tony Dungy, will be the focal point of the Super Bowl. Pro sports has always been the vehicle altering the landscape of racism. Consider the Dodgers signing of Jackie Robinson. That bold move by general manager, Branch Rickey, led to the integration of public schools, the army, also public transportation. Ironically 35-years ago, it was believed by many that African Americans lacked the mental capacity to play quarterback in college and pro football. Today, their speed also athleticism has revolutionized the position. Dungy, who has built a Hall of Fame resume, plays down the significance of this historic occasion. He says it will only be news when no notices the color of a head coach's skin. But tonight, over 35-years of prejudice will finally be buried when he or Lovie Smith holds up the Vince Lombardi trophy.
* As for the game, I'm picking the Colts 24-14. Indy's defense is too fast for the sluggish Bears to contain; everyone seems to forget, moreover, the banged up Seattle Sea hawks almost beat Chicago in the second round playoff game. New Orleans, could not believe they let an opportunity slip away when they clearly were the superior team. Although Lovie beat Tony to the Super Bowl the Colts will make sure Tony Dungy is the one who hoist the trophy.
