Yeah they have been working him out in LA. It's a ten day contract but at 35 it's a small miracle he is still getting a look.

That's not going to happen any time soon. It would be awesome if it did and every time someone brings it up like Obama's the first black president, I think "why do we care?" Shouldn't we just be evaluating him as a president based on what he does like anyone else, not who he is? The fact that we point it out shows that we're not past these barriers and labels that we set up as a society. Hopefully we will be one day but not likely in any of our lifetimes.

I agree. We have come a long way since Robinson or O'Ree but there is a long way to go.
