Don’t be shook
Okori sent me this question a couple of days ago. They’ll be three this week as Cevidence has a nice topic and TSF writer CinQue will post one as well. On subsequent Fridays we’ll post one from a reader and one from the TSF writer collective.

As Obama wins in Iowa amid a huge democratic voter turnout (approx. 230,000 which doubled republican voters) you will hear how much of a historical win this is for Blacks.
When considering the initial groundswell of reports worldwide, is this the case?
Does it matter?
Watch closely how the race is reported from here on in. This could get interesting, but don’t bet the house on Obama even when considering Kerry (Edwards second) won Iowa in ’04.
*Relevance elicited amending the original question, but do comment on that topic.
Run by the Commission for Old School Friday.
Fallin’ from the roof. Thanks Coach Lynam
It’s simple. Can the Lakers do this? If not, what’s holding them back?
Is it “The Dunk” delivered by John Starks over Horace Grant, Michael Jordan, and Scottie Pippen in the 1993 playoffs? Or some other dunk?
The future of sports reporting?
More and more athletes are using their individual voices to connect with fans. The negative effect of money only cultured reporting has created an athlete backlash. Seemingly, pros are growing weary of journalists having control over their athletic legacies and are doing something about it. Gilbert Arenas has one of the best blogs around because of his cool wit and unapologetic sense of straight up realness. His words will not be spoken or written out of context because he alone–at least through his blog–controls what we will and will not know.
I love it.
What’s next? Is it time to “blow up the spot”?
Roid Rage or frustrated concern?
Here’s a list of names:
You have the chance to make an impact in a hotbed of Black sports fans going through it right now with the absence of Mike Vick. Arthur Blank would be a fool to not bring you in for an interview.The interim hire of Emmitt Thomas then wouldn’t seem like such a token move to shut fans up.
Light it up sista. It’s time for our own celebration!
Black athletes are being vilified to no end lately. When athletes are up for Hall of Fame induction, present scrutiny will be part of the voting process and will doom their inclusion based on public perception.
What can minorities do as a group to ensure their own celebration of professional athletic exploits?
NFL pundits would have you believe Tom Brady is the best player in the NFL because of the Pats current domination of the lig. Yeah his has riiings, but is he or Peyton Manning the best the league has to offer?
