The culmination of what has likely been a difficult, and sometimes emotionally charged endeavor, getting the right job can bring a great sense of relief. One of the most effective strategies for ensuring long-term success on the job site is to assign a job coach to work side-by-side with the new employee, easing the transition to a new work environment. Getty ImagesDespite speculation he would receive lucrative offers to leave for either USC or the NFL, Texas A&M has announced head coach Kevin Sumlin has signed a 6-year contract extension to keep the best job in college football.
When discussing the best programs in college football, Texas A&M is not going to get much support above other traditional powerhouses.
In addition to a good salary and job security, the three biggest things any college football coach would want in a job is a big budget, access to the best players, and a chance to win. In the past year, Texas A&M received $740 million in donations, the highest-ever for a university and is likely to surpass Texas as the biggest money-maker in college sports.
Recruiting the top high school football players in the country is a lot easier when the head coach can show off state of the art equipment and facilities and that is exactly what A&M will soon have. In addition to being able to show off great facilities to high school recruits, it helps that a coach can tell them they will play marquee games on national television almost every week and have a good shot to win a championship. In the NFL this season, 11 quarterbacks from the state of Texas have started at least one game.
Texas A&M may have a tough schedule playing in the SEC, but they have an advantage over other SEC schools by having better access to Texas high school football players. There may be college football programs with more tradition than Texas A&M, but it would be hard to find a better coaching job in college football. Whether Gene Chizik lasts beyond the 2012 season depends on a number of factors, from buyouts to wins and losses to what sort of progress the Tigers show over the season's final five games. Progress won't be found in the win column, not with Texas A&M, Georgia and Alabama still to come.
The Eagles were competitive for a few weeks, losing to Miami (Fla.), Northwestern and Army by a combined 21 points. Give some credit to Phillips and his staff, who rallied Kentucky together in time to give Georgia a scare in Saturday's 29-24 loss. It's clear that Holtz and his staff used the team's bye week wisely, as the Bulls looked stronger against Louisville on Saturday than at any point over the previous month. Jim Melhus wanted a way to raise awareness and money for the Homeward Animal Shelter, where he works as a dog trainer. Melhus donated a baseball signed by baseball greats Roger Maris, Mickey Mantle and Ken Hunt at Homewarda€™s annual Wags, Whiskers & Wine event Oct. Maris now stands at seventh on the list, but the three players whoa€™ve hit more than 61 homers in a season a€“ Barry Bonds, McGwire and Sosa a€“ have all been implicated for steroid use.
Jim Savageau was Melhusa€™ boss at OK Tire, and he happened to be a friend of Marisa€™ from Shanley High School and was part of the golf tournamenta€™s inner circle. The tournament came to town and, as was always the case in the early days, there was much revelry among the former Yankees and their friends.
Savageau showed up at OK Tire a morning after such revelry and spotted Melhus a fair distance away performing his job as a tire installer.
The signatures of Maris and Hunt have been authenticated by a sports memorabilia organization, which is very important to collectors.
Galen Heinle of Big Nicka€™s Sports Cards in West Acres Mall helped the shelter authenticate the ball and said it has great value. Homeward Animal Shelter hopes Marisa€™ popularity can help with its mission of rescuing, sheltering, protecting and finding homes for dogs and cats.
ESPN's announcement will come one day after North Dakota State football fans learned the network's "College GameDay" program did not choose Fargo.
The following e-mail was sent to Minnesota State University Moorhead faculty and staff today. MSUM President Anne Blackhurst has named Doug Peters, Director of Athletics, to serve as Interim Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs.
Blackhurst also announced interim administrative office realignments that will be reviewed during the coming months. Drew Wrigleya€™s public confession of an extramarital affair seemed more like a staged political event than a genuine mea culpa, but what should we expect from a person whose political ambition seems to be outweighed only by his audacity? North Dakotaa€™s lieutenant governor got caught with his pants down and his answer was not to throw himself on the mercy of the court and say a€?Ia€™m sorry,a€? but to seat his wife next to him and talk about prayer and faith and the couplea€™s pastor. Yes, Drew Wrigley still really wants to be governor a€“ really, really, really wants to be governor a€“ and hea€™s doing what he can do to keep the dream alive. This little pothole in the road opened last week when a blogger named Jim Fuglie, a former leader of the Democratic-NPL Party in North Dakota, dropped word of Wrigleya€™s messy personal life and a€?indiscretionsa€? in a post predicting state attorney general Wayne Stenehjem would replace Jack Dalrymple as governor. Wrigley responded swiftly by issuing a handful of interviews with select legitimate media, and a sycophant right-wing blogger, in an attempt (in public-relations terminology) to control the message. The lieutenant governora€™s adept handling of the nasty news, and North Dakota mediaa€™s lack of courage in insisting on more specifics or even offering tough commentary, seems to have worked.
This limp reaction to Wrigleya€™s confession makes it likely hea€™s feeling confident about his ability to make a run at the Republican nomination and, in deeply red North Dakota, the governorship. See, a real human being with real humility woulda€™ve issued a statement saying, a€?My wife and I are working through this very difficult time together. Instead, Wrigley essentially held a press conference with his wife at his side and admitted hea€™s still mulling a run for governor.
Ita€™s particularly interesting when you consider the leak about the affair is alleged to have come from Wrigleya€™s own side of the aisle.
While Wrigley steadfastly refuses to give up on his dream of being governor, a run could be particularly nasty on his wife and family. Rumor has it Wrigley was carrying on with a married woman and the affair broke up her marriage. Somebody wearing such an obvious coating of veneer deserves to have it stripped away for the world to see. Six anglers from Indiana have been cited for taking 676 sunfish and crappies over their limit from Upper Cormorant Lake in Becker County, Minn. Charges were filed late last week, according to Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Bill Landmark. If convicted, the anglers could face thousands of dollars in fines and revocation of fishing privileges for three years. BOSTON -- It took an empty-net goal by Boston University star Jack Eichel to seal North Dakota's fate Thursday night in the Frozen Four. Boston U advanced to the NCAA Division I men's hockey title game with a 5-3 victory over UND, a closer victory than anybody saw coming when the Terriers were leading 4-1 with less than 6 minutes remaining.
But the fact is the frantic finish can't hide the numbers: UND has failed to win a national championship in seven trips to the Frozen Four during coach Dave Hakstol's 11 seasons. The first is the one most UND fans, and more importantly the school's administration, choose: Hak's doing a great job by getting his team to the national semifinals on a regular basis. The two coaches prior to Hakstol, Gino Gasparini and Dean Blais, won multiple national titles. Hakstol said he was happy about 50 minutes of UND's play, but thought his team didn't manage the puck well in the game's first eight to 10 minutes.
He also lamented the lack of bounces his team got through most of the contest, until Troy Stecher used a misplay by Boston goalie Matt O'Connor to score a short-handed goal with 7:50 to cut BU's lead to 4-2. So UND fans are left talk about another one that got away, and how gritty their team was and how the officiating and bounces just didn't go their way. But Hakstol continues to underachieve with a program that is the equivalent of the Boston Red Sox in college hockey. BOSTON -- North Dakota dropped two ugly games at the National Collegiate Hockey Conference tournament in Minneapolis in mid-March, losing to St. Such chatter was quelled in a big way at the NCAA West Regional in Fargo a couple of weeks ago. Questions for Hakstol and his players following UND's 4-1 victory over Quinnipiac in the regional semifinals naturally centered on "bouncing back" after such an awful showing in the NCHC tournament.
As Grand Forks Herald beat writer Brad Schlossman pointed out Wednesday in a discussion about the Frozen Four that will air on KFGO today, Hakstol nibbled around the edges of why UND played so poorly in the NCHC tournament. The narrative has definitely changed as UND readies to play Boston University on Thursday night in the national semifinals. Hakstol has taken his share of arrows for Frozen Four disappointments -- and much of it is deserved after UND allowed Boston College to score seemingly at will in three straight semifinals matchups from 2006-08 -- but a year ago in Philadelphia was a different story. UND seems to have put talk of the late-season flop and the season-ending injury to Mark MacMillan and everything else behind it. It will be interesting to see how UND fans react should their team fall short of a national title again. That was the clear talking point of UND's postgame press conference: The page has been turned. I am solidly on the left side of the political ledger, but took a very cautious approach to the story. The police report indicated a night of drinking, followed by arguing, followed by the throwing of objects and physical contact. If we learned anything from Baesler's situation it is that domestic ugliness infects even the relationships of the supposed high and mighty.
We also learned, again, that situations the media try to turn into black-and-white, right-and-wrong, this-is-the-way-it-is arguments rarely are.
A peek inside a domestic situation is an uncomfortable look at reality, not a partisan argument.
He'd just watched his very talented offensive team get steamrolled by a much, much better offensive team, 92-75 in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division II tournament. The Knights finished the contest shooting 61 percent from the floor (37 of 61), which is outstanding for any basketball team. But the most impressive player on the court was Whitehead, a 5-foot-9 scat back of a point guard who dominated both ends of the court against MSUM. Despite nearly getting run over at the end of the first half, the Dragons found themselves down just six points, 49-43, at halftime. The Knights won the Division II national title in 2011 and returned to the Elite Eight the next season.
Bellarmine's coach is Scott Davenport, who served as an assistant under Denny Crum and Rick Pitino at Louisville.
Bellarmine was the subject of a lengthy New York Times article in January, focusing on their remarkable shooting and the practice drills Davenport uses. The mentality of everyone on the floor is, I may have a good shot, but theres always a chance to get a better one for someone else, junior forward George Suggs told the Times. North Dakota State football fans are familiar with the type of stadium needed for a Major League Soccer franchise. Toyota Stadium is a 20,500-seat open-air venue that is, by today's standards, functional without being outlandish. The stadium and surrounding complex (which includes several practice fields and in total covers 145 acres) were completed in 2005 at the cost of $80 million. I'm passing along this information because Minnesota is now embroiled in a brewing MLS soccer stadium controversy.
Because the franchise will not be awarded to the owner of the NFL's Minnesota Vikings, Zygi Wilf, the new team cannot play in the nearly $1 billion stadium being built in downtown Minneapolis. So the owner of the MLS franchise, Bill McGuire, wants a new stadium in downtown Minneapolis.
Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins, is being paid for, in part, by a sales tax in Hennepin County (Minneapolis and western suburbs). The immediate opposition to a soccer stadium is baffling, if for no other reason than this would be the financially least painful facility to build. The new Vikings stadium will cost an estimated $975 million, of which $498 million will be state and city tax dollars.
So the state isn't willing to help fund a facility for a major-league soccer team, in a state in which tens of thousands of kids play soccer? The job coach’s role is to assist the newly hired client with learning the requisite job tasks, while simultaneously ensuring the employer’s expectations for productivity are met.
But when it comes to the best coaching job in college football right now, it is hard to come up with one better than Sumlin's. Of the donations received, $246 million was donated specifically to help pay for the $450 million in renovations for the school's football field.
Prior to Alabama's loss to Auburn, Ohio State was facing the very real possibility of being shut out of the BCS Championship game despite being undefeated. Even more impressive is that 25.5% of all games (98 of 384) have been started by a quarterback that played high school football in Texas.
A&M also has the advantage currently as the University of Texas has struggled in recent years. But other schools can't offer an alumni base with money spilling out their pockets and a seat in the SEC conference. After last Saturday's loss, the question isn't whether Auburn will lose seven games but whether the Tigers will win more than three. Make no mistake: Chizik's seat grows warmer with each passing Saturday, especially after losses to Vanderbilt.
That team, the one that frightened the Bulldogs, could go on a little run to end the season; Kentucky closes with Missouri, Vanderbilt, Samford and Tennessee. This will continue on down the line, until UNLV has become the best 1-8 team, best 1-9 team and so on through the end of the regular season. Now, the Miners will lose to Houston and UCF to drop to 2-8 but beat Southern Mississippi and Rice to end the regular season at 4-8. That's a huge chunk of change for any university to handle, even one as large as Tennessee, and even if the university can parcel out the payouts over the course of years instead of making a one-time payment. Both the squat and the bench were prs for Garrett and a back injury during training prevented him from pulling the 617 deadlift he did at Nationals. Many still view Maris as the a€?truea€? record-holder because he did not use performancing-enhancing drugs.
This was the first year of the Roger Maris Celebrity Golf Tournament and an all-star lineup of ex-New York Yankees were in Fargo. Chad Markuson, Associate Athletic Director, will assume additional responsibilities during Petersa€™ interim appointment.
It is hard work looking contrite, but you do what you gotta do when the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is the governora€™s mansion. Rumors of Wrigleya€™s wandering eye a€“ as well as other body parts a€“ had been swirling in political circles for some time, but Fuglie was the first to throw them out publicly. There were certain limitations put on the interviews and Wrigley would not address specific details of the affair. Whether or not I run for governor is the last thing on my mind as we work to save our marriage of 17 years. He also said the affair did not have an effect on his current job, which he will not resign. The hot rumor is that Stenehjem supporters were calling media and bloggers to tip them off on Wrigleya€™s dalliances. If indeed Stenehjema€™s supporters were trying to take him down this early, whata€™s to say they dona€™t have more dirt on the lieutenant governor? If Wrigley carried on with the other woman for, say, three years a€“ well, thata€™s a lot different than a one-time liaison. If true, the lieutenant governor would be what is known among the commoners as a a€?home-wrecker.a€? Ita€™s quite likely the husband (ex-husband?) of the other woman is quite aggrieved at this turn of affairs. He just wanted us all to know that he didna€™t break any governmental ethical codes and the affair didna€™t affect his job performance, so ita€™s all good. He entered Thursday's postgame press conference in his usual terse and defensive mood, and proceeded to tell the assembled media that he didn't want any questions about perspectives on the season. North Dakota State football fans, with the resources the school puts into the program and the tradition it has, wouldn't stand for 11 years without a national title.
There have been a number of memorable flops in the Frozen Four, fueling the "Fire Hak!" crowd. Hakstol, in his usual terse manner, quelled such talk by saying his club "turned the page" after the trainwreck in the Twin Cities.
Turns out, Schlossman has since learned, that UND's players and coaches were fighting a nasty bug that weekend that drained nearly everybody connected to the team, including strength coach Mark Poolman and team doctor Greg Greek.
A club many counted out prior to the regionals is now again viewed as a strong contender for the national title.


UND played well in a semifinal against hated Minnesota, only to see the Gophers score with 0.6 seconds left to take a 2-1 victory. Hakstol said it several times and the UND players queried by the media -- Drake Caggiula, Troy Stecher and Tucker Poolman -- repeated it, too. 15 a juicy tidbit picked up by media in Bismarck, Fargo, Grand Forks and every other major city in North Dakota.
She countered with a statement saying "an argument escalated to the point where I was concerned for my safety. I said on my KFGO program, and wrote in a blog, that we should all just quiet down and let the process play itself out. In an interview with Forum News Service, Baesler stuck by her story that she was just trying to get out of her fiance's home. And, in the end, none of the witnesses provided much clarity other than agreeing nobody saw any of the thrown objects hit Tschosik, the alleged victim. Perhaps that is a good lesson to remember: Domestic violence isn't the exclusive domain of the poor, the minority population, the uneducated, the hourly workers, the regular people. To read Mike Nowatzki's report for Forum Communications is to be part of that awkward, uncomfortable moment that is part alcohol, part emotion, part fatigue, part violence, part jealousy, part rage and a dozen other things.
Whether it was layups from Jake Thelen (12 of 16), 3-pointers from Rusty Troutman (3 of 3) or driving bankshots from the ultra-talented Chris Whitehead (8 of 13), Bellarmine simply had too many weapons for the Dragons.
He was shooting 67 percent for the season coming into the contest, and shot 74 percent last year.
Whitehead was essentially unguardable with his quickness off the dribble and when he wasn't scoring an easy layup, he was zipping a pass to Thelen or Josh Derksen for an open jump shot. As MSUM's Tyler Vaughan said after the game, "If you give up 49 points in the first half, things aren't going to go well." Yet, the Dragons were still in the game. It was the most victories in a season for an MSUM and the school's first trip to the Elite Eight since moving to Division II in the mid-1990s. He also coach with former Kentucky coach Tubby Smith while Smith was at Virginia Commonwealth. The Knights are the best shooting team in Division II at 53.4 percent and star post Jake Thelen, a 6-foot-7 senior, shoots 67 percent.
They lead the nation with 372 3-pointers and have Division II's best assist-to-turnover ratio. Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, home of FC Dallas of the MLS, is where the mighty Bison won the last four Football Championship Subdivision national title games. It doesn't seem an unreasonable request, given the orgy of stadium-building in the Twin Cities the last decade or so. Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk, a DFLer and a huge union supporter who would seemingly love more union construction jobs, has said state money for a soccer stadium will not happen. If the MLS franchise were to require an 18,000-seat stadium, it could be constructed for -- what? Much of the rest of the cost of the stadium will be offset by the NFL and naming rights, which will be sold by the Wilfs.

Meanwhile, the NFL may be able to offer as much money and less politics, but they can't offer the same security. A 17-13 loss to Vanderbilt on Saturday dropped the Tigers to 1-6 with five games left in the regular season. He's one of 10 FBS head coaches under fire as the season heads into the final Saturday of October. Over its last two games, since that 34-31 defeat, Boston College has lost to Florida State and Georgia Tech by a combined score of 88-24.
But that's the first real instance of competitiveness we've seen from the Wildcats thus far during conference play.
Being the best at anything – whether or not it's a backhanded compliment – always means something. At that point, there might be just enough momentum heading into the offseason for the university to consider bringing Price back for his 10th season with the program.
In defeat, however, USF might have played well enough to give this team the momentum needed to mount a run at bowl play over the season's final five games.
That deadlift would have easily won him the Gold Medal in total.A He lifted like a champion and represented his gym, his coach, his family and his country with dignity, class and honor. Melhus said Savageau told him that Mantle was a) extremely inebriated and b) perturbed Maris had already signed on the a€?sweet spota€? of the ball, so Mickey nonchalantly scribbled his signature. As a long time media jackal, I learned long ago to root for great stories and somebody as blindly ambitious and narcissistic as Wrigley shrugging off an extramarital affair to pursue political power is a heckuva tale. Faithful people can forgive a man succumbing to a weakness of the flesh, but a multiple-year affair requires planning and conscientious effort and lying. He's won three regular-season conference titles in his 11 years, and four conference playoff championships.
UND continues to be one of the premier college hockey programs in the country, as it was under Gasparini and Blais. Perhaps they'll add how the team was lucky to get this far after losing leader Mark MacMillan to a horrible season-ending injury and how it bounced back so nicely after a lost weekend at the National Collegiate Hockey Conference tournament. This had the hardcore base of UND hockey fans ready to begin their talk of "Fire Hak!" again.
Cloud State before a fiercely partisan full house at Scheels Arena to earn a seventh trip to the Frozen Four under Hakstol.
Ultra-conservatives who didn't like Baesler because she's an unapologetic advocate of Common Core -- the education standards hated by ultra-conservatives -- took shots at her. But they got it rolling at the end of the first half there and we kind of got left behind," Walthall said. Senior guard Jordan Riewer, averaging 16 points a game, can hit a trey from pretty much anywhere across half-court. According to a story in the Dallas Morning News, the complex is booked 250 days a year and draws 1.8 million visitors annually.

While ita€™s unfortunate this very private matter has become public, I hope the media will respect our privacy as we work through it together. UND gets the players it wants, it doesn't lack for money or staff or fan support or anything else. Bob Babich, had he not bolted town after a 2-8 season, would not have lasted in Fargo much longer.
Those of a more left-leaning nature took cracks at her because she's a Republican and she had personal issues. Peoples opinion's of Kirsten Baesler's and Todd Tschosik's relationship, I said, should not be based on political parties, but on what actually happened that night. At one end of the stadium is a stage area that can be used for concerts -- like the annual Jimmy Buffett festival that draws the stadium's biggest crowds. Mark Dayton, also a huge union supporter who touted the jobs that would be created as he acted as the top cheerleader for the new Vikings' stadium, has said he would oppose a Hennepin County tax to pay for a soccer venue.
Because the end-run to avoid a public vote on a county sales tax in Minnesota (which would most likely be "no" when it comes to sports stadia) is to get permission from the Legislature.
All follow-up services are thoroughly documented, and comprehensive, concise reports are provided to the assigned VRC, typically via electronic media. Phillips' only chance lies in Kentucky's ability to win at least three of four in November. One only wonders if Hauck will keep his job long enough to see his freshmen and sophomores develop into upperclassmen. North Dakota Nice, or perhaps fear of reprisal from the statea€™s all-powerful Republican Party, won the day. Craig Bohl was nearly run out of town after finishing 3-8, but rallied in a big way to construct a dynasty. Nothing -- repeat, nothing -- is as simple as the media (myself included) try to make it seem. Plenty of dough, to be sure, but peanuts compared to all the stadia built in the Twin Cities since 2000. I would give Georgia a significant edge if the two teams met today, but there's always a chance that the Bulldogs' nosedive if they lose to Florida on Saturday.

A I was honored to speak at his retirement held at the arena just before the Bullets moved to Washington and changed their name to the Wizards.A Denny Gordon was in ticket sales and it seem like he knew everyone who brought a ticket. Smith's Jatrious Smith    BUYING A CORVETTEThe purchasing a car is generally one of the biggest and most involved decisions that people have to make. Your Corvette is a special purchase, and you want it to be a decision you can look back on with pride .
A He was made the scapegoat after being sold out by his assisstant coach Bernie Bickerstaff and others. Ultimately, you'll have to attend to practical matters but right now, just let your imagination run free. Get yourself a book about Corvettes or read the Corvette history pages here and around the Internet.
Chances are good that you've already got a good idea of your dream Corvette, or you will find that one era of  Corvette speaks to you more than the others. The point of the exercise is to narrow down your search to a range of several year corvette and a  certain corvette body style - maybe with a list of desired features. A The meeting revolved around a charity all-star game scheduled for the Bahamas, the island home of NBA star Mycal Thompson. Ask yourself if you really want an automatic or manual transmission corvette  , do you want a car to modify and race, or just a classic corvette cruiser? Perhaps most importantly, do you plan to do a lot of restoration work to make this Corvette truly your own creation, or do you want a turn-key corvette "new car" experience?
A Magic Johnson was one of All-Stars participating.A Representatives from the NBA included VP Ron Thorne, Legal Counsel Gary Bettman and head of security Horace Balmer. A A Gary Bettman is the Commissioner of the NHL, Thorne is somewhere lurking in the NBA, Balmer has since retired and Magic is a role model for Black America? A A The short lived existence of basketball legend Michael Jordan as a Wizard's player and Executive in the front office.
A After the story broke he and several teammates made light of it during introductions of a game. A He was eventually suspended for most of the 2009a€“10 season.A The thing that I find disturbing about this Donald Sterling charade is that folks are acting like they were surprised by his rants against blacks. A A I also notice the same "Old faces and voices" are called on to respond to the racist acts by men like Sterling---when they are a part of the problem . A He and Sterling were good friends because "Birds of a feather flock together." A  Check Magic's history out and you will discover the two have a lot in common. A Magic's claim to be a minority owner of the LA Dodgers is another sham (token black face). James Brown (CBS Sports) another mis-guilded brother claiming to be a minority baseball owner and an expert on racism. A He did finally admit on the late George Michael Show (Sports Machine) "I have no say in making baseball decisions as a minority owner." A His role as a minority owner is to be paraded out on Opening Day as the black face to read the starting line-ups.
A A This is the same Michael Wilbon that I had at least two recent conversations about the use of the N word as a term of endearment.
A I have to give him credit, he will at least talk to me face to face and not behind my back.
A I tried to explain that his rationale that his grandfather's use the word as a term of endearment does not make it right today. A I told him he should not go on national television saying it is okay to use the N word among friends and family. A It gives bigots like Donald Sterling the Green Light to do the same among his friends and family. A Plus, Michael told me he was not going to appear on the ESPN Show Outside the Lines because the white host had no horse in the race! A A I wish that Magic, James, Michael and the rest of the media experts would defer to black men like Hank Aaron, Dr. A But they wear the battle scars and have been on the front lines of the civil rights movement in real life and in the sports arenas of America. A In other words, they have been there and done that.A I guess that is wishful thinking, especially when everyone wants to be an expert on television. A In the meantime, they don't know their asses from a hole in the ground but the beat goes on and on. A Auerbach would go a step further in the 1966-67 NBA season, when he stepped A down after winning nine titles in 11 years, and made Bill Russell player-coach. A A trailblazers, RED AND DOTIE AUERBACHi»? ON INSIDE SPORTSA Russell would eventually be the first black to win an NBA championship. A There are far too many crying "Foul" and playing the victims in this charade, to include some NBA owners.A Let me start with my homeboy, the great Elgin Baylor who was the Clippers GM for over 2 decades. His teams were perennial losers on the court and in attendance, but he picked up his check every two weeks and kept his mouth shut.
A A In his deposition, Elgin spoke about what he called Sterling's 'plantation mentality,' alleging the owner in the late 1990s rejected a coaching candidate, Jim Brewer, because of race.
A Talking about an organization needing a change of name and a face-lift---meet Leon Jenkins.A Jenkins seen above at a press conference trying to explain why the li»?ocal branch was honoring Sterling during the 100th Anniversary of the organization next month.
A A He explained the previous award had been approved by the man he replaced and he just went along to get along.
A A Sterling won't be the first to sleep black and think white when it comes to sex, politics and money. Slave owners lived by the credo and in modern day history there was the late Senator Strom Thurmond. A Nike NBA rep John Phillips and I met with VP Rod Thorn, League Counsel Gary Bettman and Head of League Security, Horace Balmer. A The meeting centered around whether Magic Johnson, Mycal Thompson and a group of NBA All-Stars would be allowed to travel to the Bahamas for a charity basketball game without league approval. The game had been played in the Bahamas the previous year without incident or controversy.A It was obvious that there was a power-play being made by the league office to cancel the game. Thorn open the meeting by asking who was going to be responsible if one of the players was hurt during the game? A Magic suggested that the topic of conversation just might be centered around an injury to a player. I tried to explain that playing the game was no different then one of the players participating in a pick-up game on a New York City playground in the off season. A What is this some kind of plantation?"A The room went silent and Horace Balmer the only other black in the room just shook his head and seem to be lost for words.
A Thorn called off the discussion and promised to get back to us but he never did.A In the meantime, Magic Johnson disappeared and changed his number.
A Mycal was a class act but his hands were tied when Magic decided to do his Houdini act.A Gary Bettman now runs the NHL, Ron Thorn is still in the NBA somewhere calling the shots, Horace Balmer has since retired and Magic is the face (black) in the middle of the Donald Sterling charade. A When all is said and done, the real victim despite all of her baggage is the girlfriend (The Whistle Blower) V. A NBA Commissioner Adam Silver during his annoucement as it related to the punishment of Donald Sterling apologize to black NBA pioneers Earl Lloyd, Chuck Cooper and Magic Johnson. A He reminds me of the controversial Celebrity Chef Paula Deen who alledgely use The N word to describe her love for black folks. A  How should we expect her to know if she has never walked in our shoes ?A  When it is a part of your DNA it is difficult to rid yourself of the gene.A  A One morning I was watching Ms. This award was longed overdue and I wonder why it took the NAACP so long to finally recognized Mr.
Belafonte in accepting the award asked, "Where are today's black leaders?A  Our children's blood is still running in our streets---there is work still to be done.
The coalition stated it will urge President Obama to mention an urban jobs plan in his state of the Union speech on February 12th----Good luck! Ben Carson of John Hopkins University Hospital.A  His prayer and message was centered around health care, the economy, American debt, and tax reform, thus taking dead aim at President Obama's platform for the nation.
Carson spend 25 minutes talking about the nation's ills and solutions with the President sitting less than 5 feet from him.A  When all was said and done, President Obama was not looking so Presidential! Carson set the record straight from the very beginning.A  He made it clear he was not taking any wooden nickels. In 2010, he became that series' youngest driver and the first black driver to win a race at Greenville-Pickens Speedway.
A close friend of mine that has been partially paralyzed by strokes, pays for aids to "help".
If they show up, they usually just sit and do nothing, root through her jewelry and personal effects, and some have been caught stealing jewelry. One was there when she collapsed with another stroke, and instead of calling for help, she called her boyfriend and left, leaving her patient to manage on her own. It runs M - F from 10am - Noon and starting on Monday July 22 will repeat from 4pm - 6pm each day. My opinions about Tiger Woods or any other issue are mine and I could give a damn about what Feinstein or anybody else things about them. In their prime at theA Washington Post, they were among the best sports writers in the country. A I was up close and personal with the sports department.A Kindred and Chad were talented writers but you could not trust them, Cornheiser and Feintstein's talent, they easily blended in with the landscape of the paper. A Feinstein called Wilbon the biggest ass kisser in sports media, if that is true he had great teacher in Cornheiser. A When Solomon tried to kick Cornheiser to the curve (fire him) in the 80s he was able to move to the Style section of the paper. A One black female Washington Post columnist wrote a book titled "Plantation on the Potomac." A She was describing her employer.
A Hopefully, they were asked to participate and were of the same mindset as Wilbon not comfortable with Mr. A Goodell makes more than any player in the NFL and he never has to make a tackle or catch a pass.A The owners recent pay out to the players for injuries suffered on their watch was peanuts compared to the billions they make year in and year out.
A When he refused a request by his mother to cease using the word and a similar plea by poet Myra Angelo. Martin Luther Kinga€™s 1963 march on Washington and 46 years since his assassination in Memphis, Tenn. With the high-scoring Macauley, elite passer Cousy, and new prodigy Sharman, Auerbach had a core that provided high-octane fast-break basketball. In the next years until 1956, the Celtics would make the playoffs every year, but never won the title. Brown was desperate to turn around his struggling and financially strapped franchise, which was reeling from a 22a€“46 record.[5]A The still young but already seasoned Auerbach was made coach.
A Nike NBA rep John Phillips and I met with VP Rod Thorn, League Counsel Gary Bettman and Head of League Security, Horace Balmer.A The meeting centered around whether Magic Johnson, Mycal Thompson and a group of NBA All-Stars would be allowed to travel to the Bahamas for a charity basketball game without league approval. A He was right on point.A To this day I think Magic had a previous discussion with the league office.
James Gholson, Red Auerbach, Biff Carter, Jessie Chase, Morgan Wooten, Everett Cookie Payne Sr., Frank Bolden, Dr. Leo Hill, Roper McNair, Earl Alfred, Maxwell Honemond, Tilman Sease, William Roundtree, Charlie Baltimore, Jaky Mathews, Ferdinand Day, Nick Turner, Walter Brooks, Ted McIntye, and my saviors, Dave Brown and Bighouse Gaines.A  They knew their Xs and Os, but more important, they were there for our highs and lows.A  Where have all those flowers gone? We never could have made it without them.I have given up on the Pigskin Club, but keeping hope alive for the DC Recreation Department and the Roving Leader Program. BELL 12-25-1940---8-1-2013A A GOOD COP WHO BROKE THE CODE OF SILENCE IN THE WASHINGTON, DC POLICE DEPARTMENT. A The real Serpico is seen leaving the Bronx Courthouse alone after testifying before the Knapp Commission on wide spread police corruption in the department. A In the old days police A would carry a "drop knife---an inexpensive weapon cops would bring along on patrol to drop onto or next to suspect that they had taken out so that they could say that he had threaten them. A Today you don't even need to do that; all that you have to do is justify the use of deadly force if you are a police officer is to say that you feared for your life, for whatever reason. If the victim dies, that just means there will one less witness around to contradict the test-lie. A In the case of Officer Michael Slager of the North Charleston police, it appears he was being extra-carefulto cover his tracks. A Probably he could have gotten away with simply declaring, as he did in the radioed report, that Walter Scott "took my taser," and that would have probably have sufficed to exonerate him. A But Slager having shot Scott eight times in the back--as everyone can see in the now famous video--perhaps felt that he needed a little help explaining what he was up to. A So apparently dropped his Taser next to Scott's body, which would obviously help to make the case that Scott "Took my taster."A If you think that what happen in North Charleston is a unique case, its not. A Only recently, in another case, a policewoman in Pennsylvania first Tasered a black man then shot him twice in the back as he lay face down in the snow. A Unless honesty is rewarded more often then corruption, the police will lose credibility altogether.
A I wrote a letter to President Bill Clinton in 1994 addressing this very issue, saying that honest cops have never been rewarded, and maybe there ought to be a medal for them, he wrote back but nothing change. A If enough testi-lying is uncovered, then who is going to believe the police even when they are telling the truth?
A A Until now the shoot first fear of my life mantra has eliminated any cause for concern in the taking of life by police. A When a civilian committs a crime, every nuance is looked at, the better to "throw the book at" the suspect. A The other day I got a letter from a journalist in Argentina who was complaining about police and judicial corruption there.
A I wrote back to him, there are good cops, even where you live, but if the good cops don't want to be painted with the same broad brush as the bad cops, they need to come forward and expose the guys who are doing bad things.
A Take New York City detective who was caught on camera recently abusing an Uber driver with threats and foul language, A This was truly disgusting behavior. Yet predictably enough the detective union leader, Michael Palladino, was out there making excuses for him, suggesting that, well, it was only one incident, and everyone has a bad day. A Afterward Police Commissioner William Bratton announced he was removing the detective's shield and placing him temporarily on desk duty while an investigation is conducted .
A But this man needs to be demoted to uniform at the very least, or "back in the bag" as we use to say. A Imagine what he is capable of doing under the cover of darkness if he can talk to someone like that in broad daylight. A There are plenty legitimate incidents where police believe, correctly, that their lives are in danger. A I was in a few of those situations myself during the course of my career.A But unless the police forces and society as a whole take action we're not going to be able to distinguish between the legititimate claims and made-up testimony. A A long time ago Norman Rockwell painted a famous picture of a friendly neighborhood cop bending down to help a little boy. A For example; I could name someone who is a great athlete but a lousy human being or I could name someone who is a great human being but not a great athlete.
A Heading the list is Muhammad Ali (The Greatest), Red Auerbach (NBA), Dave Bing (NBA), Lenny Moore (NFL), Bert R.
Sugar (Boxing), Lee Jones (NBA), Roy Jefferson (NFL) and Harold McLinton (NFL), finding pro athletes like them today are far, few and in-between. A And that is a sad commentary when you think about the hundreds of men and women I have interviewed on Inside Sports and worked with as a youth advocate (Kids In Trouble). Moore, LB Dave Robinson (2013 NFL Hall of Fame inductee) and WR Roy Jefferson host KIT toy party. A Sam Jones (NBA), Lenny Moore (NFL) and Roy Jefferson (NFL) participate in KIT clothing drive for needy children at Union Station. A Bert Sugar (Boxing) receives KIT Life Time Achievement Award and Dave Bing (NBA) pays tribute to KIT Saturday Program All-Stars.I had the opportunity to hear an interview on Sirius A XM Radio (channel 126) on the Maggie Linton Show recently, her guest was NFL Washington Pro football player, wide receiver Peirre Garcon. A I have not been very impressed with todaya€™s pro athletes and their give back commitment to their family, friends and community. A He has three older sisters making him the youngest and the only one born in the United States.His father died when he was 4 years old leaving his mother to raise him and his 3 sisters alone.
A My background is similar to Peirrea€™s, my mother had to raise 4 boys alone with an assist from Grandma Bell.
