A Very American Coup By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor-in-Chief...
Sunday’s classic matchup: Newton versus RG3
NORTH CAROLINA (BASN)—This should be a classic game.
Washington versus Charlotte on Sunday, November 4.
Why? Because, the league perfectly scheduled this game two days before the political showdown between President Obama and Senator Mitt Romney on Nov.6.
This game, in fact, would make former boxing promoter Don King extremely proud.
I mean only in a America, can you have two, Black, former Heisman Trophy winning quarterbacks, playing on national television at the same damn time.
The TV ratings should be extremely high down south.
Especially, with Cam’s Superman celebration and RGIII with his Super-man socks.
I am getting excited just thinking about it.
This game should be bigger than Howard University’s homecoming.
There is no need to be jealous Puffy.
Hell, BET and TV-One should air this game on their networks with special interviews leading up to game.
And despite the Panthers’ (1-6) record, Cam, who was the AP Rookie of the Year in 2011, will have something to prove while facing this year’s rookie sensation, who has been nicknamed Black Jesus by one of his teammates.
Yeah, RG3 versus Cam Newton.
Both of their mere presence under center should inspire millions of other young Black boys, who have dreams of playing quarterback in the NFL.
Because, these two quarterbacks have the potential to revolutionize the game and possibly win a Super Bowl like Washington’s Doug Williams did on January 31, 1998 during Super Bowl XXII, which made him the only Black quarterback to accomplish this feat.
Man, I can’t wait for this one.
It’s definitely must see TV.
This game, in fact, could be historic, if both of these two signal callers end up winning a Super Bowls in the near future.
So, tell your pastors to keep their sermons short and to the point this Sunday.
Because, Black Jesus is playing against Superman.
