Angela Bofill I Try

A sweet serenade that is timeless.

...but we didn't hear you, Marvin

37 years ago, Marvin Gaye released his breakthrough album, "What's Going On" where he fretted the state of the environment (Mercy, Mercy Me) and told us we didn't need to escalate a war. You were right then, and you are still right today.

For Terrence, Donald T. Sterling and the rest of Clippernation

Soul Train Line
Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes - Bad Luck

I don't know what else to say. Blake Griffin, rookie stud number one draft pick with the game to become a top 20 player in his first year, is out six weeks with a fractured kneecap he suffered in the final pre-season game. Let's hope the training staff is capable of keeping the young man strong.

I have selfish reasons for being bummed out: I have a Clipper 12-pack, section 215, with all the top teams from around the league coming to town. The Clippers, who won 19 games last year, are bound to be better, if they can only have a little good luck.

Law of averages plainly states that chance go around
But if you want to know the truth about it,
I'll tell you what's holding you down,

UNLV Football Home Opener 9/5/09

Gerald and Terrence went to the UNLV Home Opener against Sacramento State. I love college football, and can't imagine going to a college that didn't have a football team.

Final score, UNLV 38, Sac St. 3

But I have to say I am spoiled by having attended FAMU, with that marching band, and it is difficult for me to be impressed by a typical college halftime show. In case you've never seen the Marching 100, here is a sample.
