It’s playoff football time here in Tennessee and the Quarterfinals kickoff tonight @ 7pm. We’d like to take a moment to highlight a few games from across the state. Let us start in Division I Class AAA with the Firebirds of Pearl Cohn out of Nashville, TN. They will be up against Fairview tonight, and the Firebirds ended the regular season with a record of 8-2 and they have won their last 3 games 146-0…just let that sink in for a minute, 146-0! Pearl Cohn’s opponent for tonight has a record of 9-3 but they are going to need their “big boy pants” on tonight, because Pearl Cohn has been on an absolute tear lately.

Now the other game to watch tonight is going to be the 12-0 Raleigh-Egypt Pharaohs(Memphis, TN) vs the 11-1 Chargers out of Covington, TN. Raleigh-Egypt has not won by less than 12 points since an early 1 point thriller against Arlington, so this should definitely be an interesting game. I personally know how good the Chargers are this year, just as they have been in years past. The Crockett Co. Cavaliers will have a grudge match against the Haywood Tomcats. Haywood beat the brakes off of Crockett earlier this season, but this is a new day and I’m sure the Cavs are salty about their performance and would love nothing but to send the Tomcats home with an L. Also we cannot forget about the Maplewood Panthers that are trying to add to the hardware their basketball program captured earlier this year.

And for Class 6A we will start with the 10-2 Whitehaven Tigers taking on the White Station Spartans. White Station is a team with a losing record for the year but seem to have caught fire in recent weeks, with wins in 4 straight games, which would include last week over a then undefeated Germantown squad (29-28) and they knocked off Arlington as well (17-14), so I am sure they will not be intimidated by Whitehaven. Lastly i would like to highlight what I believe is going to be the game of the week and that is the Cane Ridge Ravens vs the Ravenwood Raptors. Both programs are ranked in the top 15 in the state. Tonight is going to be a very interesting night across this state for football.

World Series champion Jose Altuve added a new piece of hardware to his 2017 collection. Altuve is this year’s AL MVP after his Houston Astros finished the season as the champs. Altuve is only the 2nd Astros player to win MVP, the other being Jeff Bagwell. Now, on the flip side of things, Giancarlo Stanton (Marlins) won the NL MVP by just 2 votes over Joey Votto (Reds). Stanton finished the season with 59 home runs, 132 hits with a batting average of  .281. Stanton is only the 7th MVP whose team had a losing record.

Let the church say Amen…

3 Toledo, OH pastors are facing life in prison after being indicted on sex trafficking charges.  The Rev. Cordell Jenkins, Rev. Anthony Haynes and the Rev. Kenneth Butler have all be charged on conspiracy to sex traffic children, one girl was being pimped at the age of 14. Now, I am all for innocent until proven guilty, but Anthony Haynes is also charged with trying to destroy electronic evidence. Now, of course they have all plead not guilty, but if you’re trying to destroy evidence, then you make yourself look guilty.

I have to say this, no disrespect to anyone that may be a follower of the Christian faith, but this is why we, especially my so-called black people need to stop putting all of our faith in these bible thumping pimps. I know, I know, I know…not ALL clergymen are perverts, rapists and thieves but it’s damn sure a lot of fornication/molestation that goes on in the church. Whether it’s a preacher bustin down(having relations) with one of his married members, or he’s a Catholic priest molesting/raping a young boy, it’s been going on for years! As I like to say, there’s nothing new under the sun, unfortunately this isn’t the first nor the last situation like this.

Now, LET THE CHURCH SAY AMEN…

UCLA Suspends Hill, Ball & Riley Indefinitely

Tags

, , , , , , ,

The UCL Bruins announced indefinite suspensions for their 3 freshman players that were arrested for alleged shoplifting in China last week. The public has weighed in on what they believed should happen to the players, even going as far to say they should be kicked off of the team. I was not agreeing with that due to this being “alleged,” and players have done much worse and still been allowed to play. No word on the length but the word “indefinite,” leaves plenty of options. It could be a week or months, I believe 2 weeks will be the max amount of time the players will miss but we shall see.

The Boo Boo Bowl

9ers

 

This past Sunday, the San Francisco 49ers defeated the New York Giants 31-21 to win what will be this season’s “Boo Boo Bowl.” The Boo Boo Bowl is a game played between 2 teams that are terrible and battling for a top 5 pick in the next draft. This game embodied both of those things and more! 9ers quarterback CJ Beathard scored 3 times, one of those being a rushing TD.  After getting their first win of the season, this leaves the Cleveland Browns as the only win-less team in the league. So, congratulations are in order for the San Francisco 49ers, the winners of the 2017 Boo Boo Bowl! You are now one step closer to the 2nd overall pick as opposed to the 1st overall pick lol. Side note, Kyle Shanahan has not named his started for next week’s game, which leads me to think that if Jimmy G has at least 60% of the playbook down, then Kyle is going to go ahead and pass him the reigns.

Latrelle Lee punches his strength coach and everybody seemed cool with it…

Now former TSU defensive lineman, Latrelle Lee has been kicked off the team and expelled from Tennessee State after he punched his strength and conditioning coach on the sidelines of their game this past Saturday. Here is the video, courtesy of Football Scoop where Lee can be seen knocking out this coach and the people around seemed ok with it. There is one staff member that can be seen initially attempting to calm the altercation, but clearly he wasn’t interested in doing more to stop the inevitable. I also read somewhere that this wasn’t the first time Lee has assaulted a staff member. Now, who knows what was said to make Lee pop off, but one thing I do know, if you’re a coach and you got a player named any variation of “Latrelle,” you better guard ya grill, just ask PJ Carlisimo and T.J. Greenstone.

Tennessee fires Butch Jones

Tags

, , , , , ,

Finally, after some of the most under-performing and disappointing years in Tennessee football, the Volunteers have decided to fire Butch Jones. I think this was right call & now they can try to move forward with rebuilding what once was a very good program. I say go after Tee Martin, USC’s current offensive coordinator and UT 1998 National Champion but it’s believed by most Tennesseans that I’ve spoken with, that UT wouldn’t hire a black head football coach. We shall see.

Dallas Cowboys 2nd year running back has been suspended by the NFL since August 11, but with all of the legal proceedings that accompanied the initial ruling, the Ohio State product has not missed a game. That will all change this coming Sunday, as the the 2nd circuit court of appeals did not grant Elliott’s appeal for an injunction and he will absolutely be missing this game. And the beat goes on…

Rick Pitino made the call…So?!

rick-pitino-ousted-after-university-of-louisville-is-linked-to-college-basketball-bribery-scandal.jpg

The FBI is investigating the University of Louisville basketball program and it has come up during the investigation, that coach Pitino made the call to Adidas rep James “Jim” Gatto, to make the payment to the recruit in question, Brian Bowen’s family. In an ESPN interview coach Pitino denied having any involvement in funneling money to Brian Bowen or his family. I for one do not give a damn if he made the call or not, truthfully speaking. As long as the call was made! Look, clearly the NCAA is exploiting players and calling it amateurism, when they (universities and their officials) get to sit back like fat-cats and reap the benefits of the athlete’s labor. Coach Pitino may never coach again in Division I college basketball, but make no mistake about it, what he did is only wrong because he didn’t get his whole team 100 bands, now if he would have done that, he’d be infamous for sure. I am ready for this current model of college athletics to be over and done with, and a new infrastructure is in place, because we all know this is highway robbery.

Throwback Thursday: Andrew “Rube” Foster

rube

In honor of “Throwback Thursday,” I would like to highlight the Father of “African-American” baseball. Andrew Foster, known by most as “Rube,” founded the Negro National League in December of 1920, in which Foster invited 8 owners to Kansas City to form what we would become the strongest league to oppose major league baseball. During it’s existence, the NNL would serve as a league that would fight off the poachers, i.e. booking agents of the times from coming in and using up the best players and paying them less and taking more money from the gate and still treating the players as 2nd rate players/people. Rube was not only the founder, but he wore many hats within the league and coupled with being told at a meeting, with then American League president Ban Johnson and former Yankees manager John McGraw, that “it wasn’t the right time for African-American players in the major leagues,” and not long after that meeting, he suffered a mental breakdown in 1926 and was committed to a mental institution where he would stay until his death at the age of 51.

Andrew “Rube” Foster, the founding Father of the Negro National League.
