Please give me a caption for this pic.
You all have been great with these.
Maybe at the end of the year I will give away some Field Negro gear to the best captions. (Maybe)
Finally, I want to give a big thank you out to venerable Philly journalist, Elmer Smith, and the folks of the Burlington Tabernacle Baptist Church for hosting a wonderful event yesterday. (Shout out to Ms. Dawn for that serious lunch.)
I was honored to be on a panel with some great writers, journalists, and giants of media in the Philadelphia area. Jasmine Alexander; Richard Aregood; Art Fennell; Annette John-Hall; Karen Turner; and my good friend, Solomon Jones. These folks all helped to make it a day worth remembering.
I have to also give a special shout out to Stephen Smith of ESPN, who also made it a point to be there even though the LeBron James story was breaking at the exact time that the program was going on.
The kids who were there, and the up and coming bloggers, were wonderful and engaged, and I was humbled by their eagerness to learn and to listen to the knowledge that I --and others present-- was fortunate enough to be in a position to share with them.
The future looks bright
