Ugh. I'm so conflicted about this. Of course I'm glad that the NLBM is getting a donation. I love Bob Kendrick. However, I think that this money would be much better for actual small black owned businesses like Bayou on the Vine, that had to close. Bob Kendrick can get into damn near any corporate boardroom he wants to get into and every single year he gets to appear on dozens of MLB broadcasts.

Dave 100% did this for clout, and I don't know how I feel about that. I know I'd feel much better about it if seemingly the only two black owned businesses that has gotten this money are two high profile non profits instead of the traditional mom & pop shops who need help the most, people who traditionally have a harder time getting business loans.

Portnoy is very smart and knows his fans don't give a crap about mom-and-pop black-owned businesses but they will be able to use the NLBM as an example of supporting black businesses that really can't be criticized too strongly.

Cheesy Mustache QB might make an appearance.

Same, but as the last few years have shown us, dumb people really really like to believe real things are fake and that fake things are real even when its pretty easy to find the truth.

This dude is pretty much a horrible dipshit.  It's one of those things where no publicity is bad publicity.

Looking through his twitter, apparently, there have been multiple celebrity hoaxes linked with broken legs.  So, when Tiger's news came across, he figured he would get in front of it and call it out as a hoax, and look like some kind of genius.  I guess.  Even though it was easily verifiable that it in fact was a real freaking car accident.

He seems like a real piece of crap.  And he preys on dipshits like him to lap it all up.
Make a joke and I will sigh, and you will laugh and I will cry.
