Tiger’s Moment of Truth & Culture’s Lame Response

leave a comment »

Tiger  in better days

A fine mess. That’s the only way I can describe it. But instead of piling on to what is shaping up to be a laundry list of adulterous affairs on the part of the world’s greatest golfer, I focus instead on how the sports media has responded.

I cannot tell you how many times I have heard sports reporters express more concern about seeing Tiger miss games over the scandal that has erupted than they do about seeing a man and his family ruined.

Yet, if the alleged adulterer in question were a minister or vocal/visible Christian, they would call for “accountability” of the guilty in the name of integrity. Hmmmm…..

I can sleep better knowing that Cheaters didn’t win this year and another Manning QB does them in once again.

Upset City!

leave a comment »

Alright.  I’m not the biggest College football fan in the world but WOW!  #17 Kentucky UPSET #1 ranked LSU 43-37.  The BCS is going to be topsy-turvy with all the early season meltdowns and upsets.  I don’t see any chance that the National Champion will finish undefeated.  Is it parity or a fluke for the upsets?

Football, Football, and More Football

It was a split for me this weekend with USC losing to Stanford (yeah!) but Notre Dame WINNING their first game over UCLA (un-yeah).  Karl Dorrell won’t make it out of this season with a job.

Professionally speaking, much to my chagrin, the NE Patriots won—again. 

Colts keep moving along and are also 5-0.

The Patriots-Colts game will be the highest rated game of the season.

What the Flip Is Wrong With Isiah Thomas?

leave a comment »

As some of my older relatives back home would say, “Some folks done lost they mind!”  So I check out my Google news ticker thingie and read the news that Isiah Thomas and MSG (N.Y. Knicks) were found liable in a sexual harrassment lawsuit brought by a former female employee.  The whopping $11.6 million dollar judgment is not what bothers me.

What has me royally pissed off is a comment the NBA legend made during a videotaped deposition about calling the African-American plaintiff, Anucha Browne Sanders, a b*tch.  Roland Martin’s blog notes:

She says Thomas frequently cussed her out, even referring to her as a “bitch” on numerous occasions. He said he never did, but did offer during a videotaped deposition that he was offended when if a white man called a black woman a bitch, but didn’t feel the same when a black man did it.

So let me get this straight, Isiah.  If a white man disrespects me, then you would be offended but if you–a Black man—call me a b*tch, then it’s cool?

The devil IS a lie, baby.  Brotha, wake up and shut up.  

Thomas’ illogical and disrespectful treatment of black women are exactly what we sistas have been complaining about.  Thomas appears to believe that he as a black man has some privilege to disrespect black women while pretending to “honor” the black woman by being offended if a white man uttered the same words he has not problem dropping on us.

Whatever, Izzy.

This kind of psychological contradiction is a sympton of a bigger problem in the Black community that needs to be dealt with.  You see the same kind of foolishness with gangsta rap and a lot of hip-hop music where black women are denigrated, called b*tches and hos.

And sadly, too many of us black women are only to happy to dance to disrespect with tight beats.

Thankfully, there are black men out there who know who they are, who love and appreciate the black women in their lives and would shove a basketball up Izzy’s behind for the nonsense he dropped.

Lord, help us please.

Death of a Legend

leave a comment »

I just heard on the news that Bill Walsh, the architect coach of the San Francisco 49ers dynasty that produced the likes of Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, and Roger Craig died earlier today at the age of 75 after finally losing his battle with leukemia.

As a lifelong Cowboys fan, I won’t forget the masterpiece he orchestrated in the 1981 NFC Championship when Joe Montana tossed a touchdown pass to tight end Dwight Clark.  As much as an 8 year old me cried, I also had a consummate respect for Walsh, for his intellectual understanding of the game, and most importantly for his ability to teach his players.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Walsh’s family and the 49ers organization.  He will be greatly missed.
