Here Comes Al To The Rescue
” I SHOULD BE THE ONE RUNNING AGAIN ”
Right off the Bat
yes Sharpton is
For his remark about Black women. We don’t need to repeat that point. Let’s move on to more interesting material. Cause Al is an interesting Guy. Even when he is not running for President.. As for the Thomas remark Big Al has an interesting idea in picketing the Garden if he does not apologize. We’re here to recommend he picket the Garden and lots of other Sports Venues or do Better..
Cause Al it’s Time
you WOKE up to
Sports in America
along with other
With your Isiah Threat you have given us one more good reason here in the Box to tackle one of our frequent topics yet again and put an Al Sharpton Spin on it. And of course we know you are PISSED off Barack Obama came along so you could not ENJOY another hopeless Presidential campaign and all those Perks and attention you would have gotten for a year or more.
So how about Channeling
that energy or hostility
Jesse has done a good job raising lots of money and getting the feigned attention of corporate executives with his annual Black Wall Street Conference even if it produces NO results.. Why not the same kind of effort for SPORTS.
In fact Al there is a way for you to tie Isiah AND Jim Dolan into this Brilliant Idea ! If you haven’t already figured it out ( or maybe Jesse already called you ) Dolan, Isiah and the Knicks need a GOOD way to look GOOD at this stage. Becoming Spokesmen and most of all $$$$$ can do that !
There is NO doubt you could raise the Big Bucks soliciting teams, leagues, broadcasters and merchandisers for an Annual Conference on the Future of African Americans in Sports.
Of course just like the Guys on Wall Street and across Corporate America they wouldn’t pay any real attention to changing their ways but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth taking their money and getting attention. And who knows yes maybe being more successful than Jesse has been ??
Al while our Readers
are VERY familiar
with The Agenda
for a Conference
maybe you aren’t
you don’t seem
in Sports most
of the Time so
Here it is ……
LACK OF BLACK OWNERS
LACK OF BLACK EXECS
LACK OF BLACK MGRS. / COACHES
LACK OF BLACK BROADCASTERS
LACK OF BLACK UMPIRES
LACK OF BLACK SPORTS JOURNALISTS
LACK OF BLACKS IN BASEBALL
LACK OF BLACKS IN MOST COLLEGE SPORTS
LACK OF BLACKS MOST OLYMPIC SPORTS
LACK OF BLACK QUARTERBACKS
LACK OF BLACK SPORTS BUSINESSES
Al that is just the first tier topics for an Annual Conference on African Americans in Sports. Once you call or email we’ll give you a far longer list and lots of specifics. You can channel your disappointment in NOT becoming the next President (sic) into much more productive activities taking our Free Advice.
And Big All you do not even have to ask
of course Black Athlete Sports Network
will be delighted to be your
Co – Sponsor it will be
Our Pleasure and if
you prefer rather than
how about we call you
MR. PRESIDENT !!
