I have done close to 10,000 stories since I started BlackSportsOnline.
There has been a lot of crazy, sad, funny and odd stories that have come across my laptop screen. So many in fact that I have become numb to a lot of the stuff I report.
But every once in awhile a story will pop up and I literally have to take a deep breath and say………..
Deadspin has the details that are giving me a migraine.
A couple of tipsters have alerted us to Talib’s participation in “Da First Eva Coon-O-Ween Party,” a Tampa-based Halloween party/wack rap show that’s scheduled for Sunday, when the Bucs are on a bye. (Click here to view the full flyer.) For $40, per the ad, you can see Tom G, Famous Kid Brick, Tae Bae Bae, Teddy P, Ms. Heather Marie, Rated R, and Young AJ, with a complementary buffet. “Aquib [sic] Talib” is listed as a special guest, with “other Bucs guests” promised on the flyer. There’s no way the Bucs can be pleased with their players attending a party named “Coon-O-Ween.”
It must be especially troubling given the billed appearance from a player who’s staring down an assault trial in the offseason.
Talib who has been a headache going as far back to his days at Kansas is probably dumb enough to agree to something like this. This is the one time I would like an athlete to lie and say he had nothing to do with this and it was huge mistake.
I mean seriously…..
I fear for our future generations of black men and women.
