    Got this E-mail from ESPN. Stuck me as kind of funny. Seems to really triviallize Black history month by turning into a cheesy promotion.

    Oh, who cares?

    Now, on another note: Smith's has whaled on Clemens and Pettitte for weeks now, more so than anyone else, to the point of boring obsession. He's done so, by his own admission, as a kind of avenger for the treatment of Barry Bonds, which Smith viewed as racist. Thoughts?

    But Steniner Sports will be there also. You might be able to pick up an autogrpahed Stephon Marbury Basketball.

    As far as Smith approach to Clemens it's equally racist.

    Remember, since the early '70s . . . the bar's been set really, really low.

    We'll have to arrange a sitdown, someday, but somehow, can't fantom that this is the appropriate time and place.
