A time I treasure,
December 28, 2012

"College and Pro-Football were alive for me in the years featuring Jim Brown and Ernie Davis...both at Syracuse, and for Jim Brown, the Cleveland Browns. Many do not know Jim was a decathlolete...while America viewed Bob Mathias on a Wheaties Box, Jim Brown was better; but he was a person of color. He was also a PAL Boxing champion, is still considered the best Lacrosse Player of all time. He was robbed of the Heisman Trophy because he was a person of color...few athletes were persons of color during his time."
