Anquan Boldin: Man of the Year (and “Terrible” Example for America)

Anquan Boldin recently won the prestigious Walter Payton “Man of the Year” award for his volunteer and charity work, as well as his excellence on the field. Listening to an interview with Boldin the other day on KNBR680, it was amazing what he and his wife, along with his mother, and his foundation have done.
 
Boldin’s been working for years to help people in need off the field, but in 2014, he and his wife pledged $1 Million dollars of their own money to the foundation in efforts to take things to the next level, including sending deserving kids to college. Boldin also mentioned that his mother still takes people in off the street at her home and helps them get back on their feet. In his acceptance speech for the Walter Payton award, he said that when he came into the league he was young and “nobody could tell him nothing.” He later grew to understand that his purpose was not to score Touchdowns but to help people.
 
“The Anquan Boldin Foundation offers numerous programs, including a summer enrichment program, Thanksgiving food drives, which offers 300 meals annually in addition to holiday shopping sprees. Last fall, the Foundation awarded $10,000 academic scholarships to five students entering college. Since the Foundation’s inception, it has awarded 13 four-year scholarships through the “Q81″ Foundation Scholarship Fund.”
 
The point of all of this…
 

What a terribly “Liberal” person this Anquan Boldin is. He must be a socialist. Giving out all of these “hand-outs” and “freebees” to impoverished people in need. Such a bad example to set. Can you imagine if we allowed the Government to do more of this!? Using tax dollars to give more young people hope and opportunity, by supporting families in need, and God forbid making public college tuition free. Think about how bad a place America would become if we did this. Instead, we should continue to use our tax money to fund the War on Drugs, Private Prisons, and endless War in the Middle East. As well as allowing Corporations and Wall Street to continue to rig the system and avoid paying their fair share. We can’t allow America to become more like the Boldin family. Such a burden would be too much for us to bear.

Black History Month (on my Snapchat)

A few days into Black History Month and I’ve already heard about some dumb **** involving racist posts and the “Black History Month” geo-tag on Snapchat… So, I decided to drop some Facts on my Snap in honor of the month and OUR collective US History. Black History month is American History!  (Even though in school and on TV we are usually taught “HIStory”).

Jerry Rice Drove A Lyft In San Francisco And Nobody Noticed

I know I’m supposed to care if Jerry Rice drove some people around in a Lyft and they didn’t notice, but I don’t.

Does that really surprise you?

We live in a city filled with gentrifiers and transplants that often navigate throughout their entire day never leaving the comfort of their cell phone. Swipe left.

Most of us don’t even know our neighbors now, let alone Jerry Rice or Joe Montana. Joe literally goes to Whole Foods here and nobody bothers him. Who’s that good looking old white guy with the blue eyes?

Shit, maybe I wouldn’t have noticed Jerry either? Too busy writing about how damn unexamined we have become. Swipe right.

But I don’t take Lyft or Uber so I guess he’s gonna have to drive a cab next time for me to notice. Plus, Jerry and I go way back to parties at Slide, and before that pickup games at Pacific Athletic Club (where I couldn’t afford a membership but always managed to somehow get in). I would’ve spotted his pearly whites from a mile away. The greatest receiver who’s ever lived driving around in a city that’s not listening or paying attention.
