An email from my brother, dated this 25th of January, in the 2007th year of our Lord:
Hey, If you still have any connections over at ESPN, can you please tell they to stop showing Wake Forest games for the remainder of the year? They STINK!!! I think even the Celtics could beat them, and that is saying a lot. So, kindly do me that favor and spare the rest of the college basketball loving world the torture of having to watch that train wreck. Thank you. Me
This is not his only gripe, simply his first outspoken request. Which prompted a response from me...and the following exchange of emails:
Not Black: this is my first blog post today...I'm going to put it up right now. Also, we have Michael Irvin on the phone today for radio interviews...I'm on hand if he says anything legendary...while all the while wondering if he's wearing a striped tie with a checkered shirt or some stupid shit.
Brother: I bet he won't be wearing any pants...seeing how it is a phone interview.
Not Black: Now that is an image i could live without. But thanks...now everyone will be wondering what I'm laughing about. At least everyone will be wondering what I'm laughing about when he's not speaking.
The interviews aren't until 11am, and believe me...I'm delighted with this opportunity to be a part of an Irvin broadcast. Pants or no pants. Ew, I just threw up in my mouth a little.
