In this business, every now and again you come across someone with super human people skills. In Vegas this summer for Chris Webber’s Bada Bling, Marcellus Wiley was kicking it with his people in a way you know was sincere. Dat Dude is the type of person who would speak to you in an elevator during the awkward silence or make conversation with a stranger in the streets below. Those who remember him on the field were most likely drawn to his engaging personality even though his play on the field was as vicious as the hit on Joseph Addai in the pic above. Retiring from the NFL this year, Marcellus has his sights set on making a strong impact on the business world with the same intelligence and strength that enabled him to have a standout NFL career.

Michael Tillery: How did you acquire the moniker Dat Dude?

Do you really think you know me?

Jemele Hill, columnist for ESPN.com, has caught some flack around these parts. This is an age where some media entities represent Disney eared, Aaron McGruder caricatures adorned with extra teenie glasses whose sole aim is to pander to the disillusioned masses–themselves jackasses. You all know where I personally stand with Jemele. Similar to what we have here with the TSF creative, I wanted to engage you with provocative thoughts of visualizing where she stands in OUR collective hearts. There’s no one in journalism like her and she hears it from everyone. Could you imagine being in the center of a room with your eyes closed and wearing headphones? Opening your eyes, you are bombarded with screaming criticism from any and everyone. The faces are Black. The faces are White…Brown and so on and so forth. There are men. There are women and even youngsters.

You stand up with a sista burned fire ready to snap.. As you remove the headphones, the faces and voices fade to black like rescinding fog in a bizarro world. You wonder to yourself , “What the hell is going on?” Thinking aloud… “Is this my professional existence? Is this what I signed up for? Am I supposed to care what these strangers think? Why are they so passionate about the words I write? Do they scream their loved ones way, like they spew hatred and venom in my comment section every day?

Why do all these people want my writing to just go away?

I tell you what, this my destiny. I do this for the love. I’m here to stay no matter what they say….

Bonds Will Boycott Cooperstown If 756 Has an Asterisk and It’s Fine With The Starting Five

Posted in Barry Bonds, Chuck D, Cooperstown, Gilbert Arenas, Hall of Fame, Mark Ecko, Mizzo, Public Enemy, sports and ethics on November 2, 2007 by mizzo

Barry Bonds will boycott the Cooperstown Hall of Fame if record breaking home run ball is branded with an asterisk.

Good for you Barry! You have TSF’s vote!

Few athletes have the balls to stand up for what is right. Money is king in the eyes of most and the idea of losing it precipitates silence strictly out of fear. Whether or not you agree with Barry Bonds is irrelevant. The fact remains that no one is close to his numbers regardless of how many needles they stuck in their asses. I applaud Barry in this instance, because I do agree with him. The hatred associated with his existence is the most sickening display of humanity I’ve personally witnessed–in sports of course.

Lil Stevie swinging like everyone else

Kobe will veto Chicago Bulls trade if Luol Deng is included.

Deng is very much in play in the conversations between Chicago and Los Angeles, ESPN.com has learned.

And it’s mainly because of Bryant’s wishes that Deng is still wearing a Chicago uniform.

A source with knowledge of the trade talks said Deng has been included in proposals swapped between the teams, but Bryant has continually threatened to veto almost any deal in which Deng would be included. Bryant wants to be sure that the team he joins has enough talent remaining to compete for the NBA title.
