Tribute to 3 Trail Blazers:


John Chaney was the legendary coach of Cheyney State and Temple University. Coach Chaney gave opportunities to inner city youthsto play Division One Basketball. He was one of the few coaches that would recruit  prop 48 players that were declared ineligible as freshmen. This rule was later changed because it was found to be discriminatory against black students because of the use of standardize testing that had cultural bias against minorities. Coach Chaney was a father figure to many of his players. He was instrumental in making the Atlantic Ten one of the top conferences in the country.

Hank Aaron was the home run king of Major League Baseball. He was able to surpass Babe Ruth record that has stood for decades. As he approved 714 home runs, he was besieged with hate mail and death threats. He kept the mail but never allow it to deter his pursuit of the record. He was playing in the deep South where discrimination was prevalent and a norm. Aaron was named to the MLB Hall of Fame and is still considered one of the best baseball players of all time.

Cicely Tyson

Cicely Tyson was an actress and fashion model. She was known for her portrayal of strong black characters. Tyson refused to play stereotypical roles that demeaned people of color. Her stance cost her money and acting opportunities. Tyson felt it was more important to be a credit to her race and give an example of setting a standard that others could follow. She was nominated for an Oscar, won Emmy's and NAACP Image Awards thru out her career that spanned 7 decades.

If you think you are going threw it, think about the real struggles that these trailblazers went thru. Each of them raise their voices so you could be heard.

The Metro Report: Sports Betting in Washington DC, Philly & New York


The Metro Report: Sports Betting in Washington DC, Philly & New York

Since the advent of Sports Betting the coverage of the New York, Washington DC and Philadelphia markets are essential to prognosticators. So I will expand with my Gaming Guy News minutes into the 3 top cities on the East Coast.

Washington Football stunned the fan base and media by cutting Dwayne Haskins from the team. This season has not been very good statistically for the 1st round pick of 2019. He had 5TD and 7 interceptions this year with a rating of 73. Haskins had 5 fumbles and was sacked 20 times. He was receiving more attention for his off the field actions that resulted in him losing his captaincy and being fined 40,000 for violations regarding COVID protocols. He was not claimed on waivers but there is interest around the league. Expect him to be in some NFL camp next summer.

The Eagles are eliminated from the playoff picture after losing to the Cowboys. They play Washington on SNF. If Washington wins, they clinch the division. The Giants play the Cowboys earlier in the day. The winner of that game makes the playoffs if the Eagles defeat Washington. Washington Football is favored by 1.5 and the over/under is 43.5 The Cowboys are favored by 3 with a total of 44.

The Nets lost Spencer Dinwiddie for the remainder of the season due to a partial torn ACL.  They are extremely deep, so expect Landry Shamet and Caris LeVert to get more minutes. Earlier this week, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving sat out because of back to back games. This is something to... Read More.

Mid Season MVP: Wilson or Mahomes

Russell Wilson is having a phenomenal year. He leads the NFL in touchdowns and his team is 6 -1. He has thrown for 2151 yards. He has never won the MVP award.

Patrick Mahomes is also playing excellent, He has thrown for 2315 yards & 21 TDs. His team is 6 -1. He won MVP in 2018.

Let's look at... Read More.


In order to prepare effectively you must think about what you bring to the table. Oprah Winfrey is quoted as saying "When you bring excellence to a room. they will find you a seat." I will share two points we can add that will make us appealing to a new opportunity or invaluable to the employer that furlough you.
If you are looking for a new job situation, be prepared to...  Read more
