Max Power!

Are you sabotaging yourself?

Hmm, I guess technically did your parents sabotage you?  Hmm, from here on out, please call me Abel Max Power (to half steal Homer Simpson’s other name).  Though do I really need A’s anymore?  I wonder if Eugene subconsciously made people think “excellent” or perhaps the sound, so “unsatisfactory”?

Oh yeah, blog is back kids… But I’m going to revamp.  So categories (once I figure out my schema) will be overarching and tags will be the new categories!

Whitlock dropping the hammer again

AOL’s Jason Whitlock- Time to Stop Looking Past Black KKK – AOL Sports

Whitlock’s final wrap/view of NBA All-Star Weekend.  A good read.

A lot of people thought they took up Ralph Wiley’s post when he passed (I don’t profess to be an expert on Wiley in the slightest), all fail (because who could fill those shoes?). But Whitlock really comes close. It’s a no-holds-barred look at the social impact of sports. I don’t read him regularly, even though EVERY time I do I think I should.

edit (added 2.23.07): I also agree with Dan Shanoff about the article:

Whitlock takes on the “Black KKK”: If only he didn’t compare himself to Rosa Parks for doing it, I might appreciate this column as much as I should.
