Richard Sherman and the Fantasy of a Color-blind Society
Huffington Post Sports - about 3 years
Let's start by stating the obvious: No one is required to like Richard Sherman. Anyone who wants to is entitled to think he's a jerk or whatever for his post-game comments Sunday about Michael Crabtree and about his own greatness. It should also go without saying, however, that we necessarily bring our personal prejudices to bear on whatever it is we're evaluating, that it's impossible to remove completely the filter of race when we do so. It suffuses our perceptions, embeds itself in our subconscious and shapes the way we see, hear, contextualize. Even compliments about black athletes, for example, like Sherman, bear those marks -- people refer to him as "articulate," or "well-spoken," comments often made about black athletes, but rarely if ever about white ones. We all know the studies -- announcers regularly ascribe to white athletes descriptors like "scrappy," "heady," "hard-working," and so on. Black athletes are much more likely to be described as "freaks," "naturals," etc. My ...

Dennis Rodman Did Not Accept North Korean Money During Trip, According To His Agent
Huffington Post Sports - about 3 years
Dennis Rodman's agent says the former NBA star did not take any payment from the North Korean government during his trip this week to the country. Darren Prince says the North Korean government did not finance any part of the trip, adding that Irish betting company Paddy Power PLC covered expenses for Rodman and his team of former NBA players that included Charles D. Smith, Kenny Anderson and Cliff Robinson. NBA Commissioner David Stern told CNN this week that Rodman was influenced by "a flash of North Korean money" to stage an exhibition game in Pyongyang. Rodman apologized Thursday for comments he made in North Korea about a detained American missionary, saying he had been drinking and was under pressure as he organized the game. He also sang "Happy Birthday" to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the start of the friendly game.

You Can’t Be Serious: Kanye West Says He Is The New Walt Disney And Kimmy Cakes Is Marilyn Monroe

Kanye just keeps digging himself a deeper hole with his mouth. Kanye Says He Is The New Walt Disney Maybe Kanye keeps comparing himself to people that are more influential than him because he doesn’t like who he is….would explain the random spazz sessions too. According to Radar Online: Yeezy’s world doesn’t exactly seem like the happiest place on Earth, but in his latest angry rant, Kanye West insisted that he’s the second coming of famed innovator Walt Disney. “I’m just a creative,” he told NY’s Power 105.1 this morning. “I’m more like, a Walt Disney or something.” “Like, rap is just a chamber of my thoughts,” he continued. “It’s something that I really wanted to express as a modern-day poet, because you know, if I had lived in a past lifetime, maybe I would have been a playwright or something. But in this lifetime, to be the most heard and the most relevant, the most relevant is to be a rap rock star. You can express at the highest level there.” But Disney isn’t his o ...

SPORTS HISTORY ….SAD, A DEATH
Fox News - over 3 years
see AP article: (AP) – Oscar “Ossie” Schectman, the former New York Knicks guard who scored the first basket in NBA history nearly seven decades ago, died Tuesday. He was 94. Schectman’s son Peter confirmed his father’s death, which was also announced by the Knicks. Peter Schectman said his father did not have a prolonged illness and succumbed after developing complications related to respiratory failure. “Ossie Schectman was a true NBA pioneer,” NBA Commissioner David Stern said, adding that scoring the league’s first basket “placed him permanently in the annals of NBA history.” Schectman scored the opening basket of a game in what was then known as the BAA on Nov. 1, 1946 for the Knicks against the Toronto Huskies, a layup after cutting down the center of the lane. The Knicks wound up winning that game at Toronto’s Maple Leaf Gardens 68-66, and Schectman went on to average 8.1 points that season, his only one with the franchise. The significance of scoring the first points ...

Why We Love To Hate The Top Sports Commentators
Business Insider - over 3 years
Familiarity breeds contempt, and never is that more true than with major sports commentators and their massive captive audiences. Mention the names of our four top sports commentators—Cris Collinsworth, Joe Buck, Kirk Herbsreit and Jeff Van Gundy—to a fan and it's a safe bet to evoke at least one visceral reaction. They talk too much. They think their so smart. And they have the best job in the world, jerks. We hate our most familiar commentators for a variety of reasons. 1. Jealousy.  Who doesn't dream of getting paid to watch great games? After a rough day of work, it's a thumb in the eye to listen to some guy make a living critiquing your team. You may say Collinsworth is smug, but you know what he is saying to be true. It's not that you really hate him, you just wish it could be you getting paid to pinpoint the weaknesses in your team's offensive line schemes. 2. We cherry-pick their mistakes. Don't act like you've never been slow to pickup on a trade or forgotten the sco ...

NBA Fines Hibbert For Gay Slur, F-Bomb
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
MIAMI -- Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert was fined $75,000 on Sunday by the NBA for using a gay slur and cursing during his news conference after Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals. Hibbert also apologized for the comments. "While Roy has issued an apology, which is no doubt sincere, a fine is necessary to reinforce that such offensive comments will not be tolerated by the NBA," Commissioner David Stern said in a statement. Earlier Sunday, the team issued a statement from Hibbert in which he said he was sorry for his "insensitive remarks." "They were disrespectful and offensive and not a reflection of my personal views," he said in the statement. "I used a slang term that is not appropriate in any setting, private or public, and the language I used definitely has no place in a public forum, especially over live television." After Saturday night's win, Hibbert ended a response to a question about his defense on Miami's LeBron James with "no homo," a ...

    FORTIES
  • 2010
    In 2010, Stern developed the animated television series Ugly Americans that airs on Comedy Central and is based on a web series called 5ON.
    More Details Hide Details The series revolves around a social worker employed by the Department of Integration in an alternate reality version of New York City inhabited by monsters and other creatures. I saw how I could keep the show grounded, but still make it expansive enough through this crazy world that I wouldn't get freaked out on episode three that I was out of stories. That's my biggest nightmare. If you're trying to create 100 episodes, you need to know you can go forever." Stern has commented that he considers Ugly Americans to be "a dream job, to write a limitless show where we can make anything happen. As long as it makes us laugh and makes other people laugh, I think that really is the dream." He has also noted that on the show, "We staff have a lot of horror comedy elements that I don't see anywhere else. I wrote for The Simpsons for a few years, and Treehouse of Horror was always the highlight of the year, but I always sort of wanted more of that. But because of the structure of The Simpsons, it wasn't really possible, being it was so specifically based on this grounded family."
    In a 2010 interview with TV.com, he revealed: "That was one of my first gigs in LA.
    More Details Hide Details I was shocked they gave me a credit because I lasted a week and then got canned. I was a runner, and they told me to go pick up this producer at San Vicente and something, and it turns out there are two San Vicentes in Los Angeles, and I had gone to the wrong one. They gave the assignment of picking up the most important producer on the movie to a guy who had just arrived in LA two weeks before." Stern got his writing break on the television comedy-drama The Wonder Years, where he was an executive story consultant and wrote eight episodes from 1988 to 1990. He has said in an interview that "I was struggling when I got my break on The Wonder Years; I like to remember it all happening like, "Cut to the next scene." There's an awful lot of blood and sweat in there, me doing massive rewrites on drafts of Wonder Years scripts on a typewriter, with less time than I've ever had in my life. I conveniently forget all that." Stern was nominated for a 1989 Primetime Emmy Award in the "Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series" category for writing the episode "Loosiers" but lost to Diane English of Murphy Brown. He was also nominated for a Humanitas Prize in the "30 Minute Category" for writing the episode "The Powers That Be".
    In 2010, he developed the animated television series Ugly Americans.
