The TURK - Tuesday Morning Comes Early In The NFL Thanks To The TURK

One thing i know about football players: they never wanna hear " Coach wants to see you in his office, and bring your playbook."

That means your going home. One week from today, on the 15th at 4 pm, some men will have their dreams of making it in the NFL end when they hear that phrase. For some it may not be over, they may catch on with another team, or play another version of the sport(arena, CFL, NFL Europe, or a variant of Semi-Pro ball).

But for most others, when they hear those words,'s over. Those who finished college have a chance to Teach, and possibly coach at some level. others wind up doing a "regular" job while they wait for a call to go back and try one more time.

Kurt Warner got the call while he was bagging groceries in a supermarket. It's a process that goes on each year. The person who bringsthe bad news has been called all sorts of names by many people, but he'll always be known as the "Turk." i wish all the rookies in camps right now the best of luck. When the Turk shows up, they will need it!

Zennie is....

Many things to many of us. But he's Simply an amazing person. He was a pleasure to work with last week, and I'm sure we will do so again in the near future. His grasp of the business issues surrounding Football is remarkable.

Condoleezza Rice Greeted With Racist Images By Palestinian Media

As my Mom says, racism is alive and well. I'm not going to post here the image used to greet Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, as you can see the story with a click here. But I will state that the Palestinian media does that country's efforts at building World support a lot of damage with this kind of crap, proving once again just how stupid and animalistic people can be.

Think about it. Isn't the smart move by Palestinians to curry favor from other minorities Worldwide? Pretty dumb for them to even allow this approach.

This also reminds me of a racist incident that happened to me at a bar called Easy in Oakland. After I wrote about it in my Oakland Focus blog, someone had the never to write that my attacker was Arab, and the implication that he was not capable of being racist toward me.

How totally ridiculous.
