Standing tall until the very end (then runs and hides).

Parker responded to a tweet Thursday which said "Good luck in your next line of work!" by writing: "Typical silly response. Watch me on First Take tomorrow and Sat.#pleze."

Parker has not tweeted since his suspension was announced.

ESPN will not renew its contract with commentator Rob Parker, who was suspended last month following remarks he made on "First Take" in which he questioned Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III's "blackness."

"Rob Parker's contract expired at year's end. Evaluating our needs and his work, including his recent RG III comments, we decided not to renew his deal," an ESPN spokesperson said in a statement Tuesday.

During a Dec. 13 episode of "First Take" on ESPN2, Parker was discussing Griffin's answer to a question about Griffin's role as an African-American quarterback. In questioning Griffin's "blackness," Parker cited that Griffin has a white fiancée and is rumored to be Republican.

Among his comments, Parker, who is black, said: "Is he a brother or a cornball brother?"

Parker later issued an apology on his Twitter account. A day later, on Dec. 20, ESPN announced he was suspended for 30 days.

Kinda shitty by ESPN, but that's show business.

In honor of the late, great Joe Falls, it's a Fish Fry Friday


If you do it once (maybe twice), you are "honoring" him.

If you just use it all the time, then you are stealing.

The first post that started this thread:


Andy wrote:
Hank Aaron is a coward. He's taking a stance but not saying what it is.

There's no other way to look at it. Aaron, the home run king, is playing a neutral role in the biggest sports debate since whether hits king Pete Rose deserved to be in the Hall of Fame.

It's clear Barry Bonds will supplant Aaron as the king of the long ball. Bonds is 18 home runs away from No. 756, one better than Aaron.

Still, Aaron says he will notbe there when he drops to No. 2.

Why? Who knows. Or more like, we allknow.

It comes down to accusations Bonds used steroids, even though the slugger hasn't been found guilty.

What's Aaron's problem?

Well, he needs to take a stand -- either denounce Bonds' attempt because he's been implicated in the steroids scandal, or embrace Bonds' accomplishment and show up.

Playing middle of the road isn't fair -- to baseball, its fans or Bonds.

Instead, Aaron has chosen the easy way out -- saying nothing.

That's sad.

Aaaannnddd, about face:


Most can't honestly understand what a single home run meant 40 years ago this week.

After all, we have seen so much change since April 8, 1974.

Heck, we even have a sitting, two-term African American president.

If you think that was a pipedream in 1974, the same would was said about a black man having the most home runs in Major League Baseball history.

Not only was it the most prestigious honor in this country, it was something few could believe a black man would have ownership of, especially after being held back from competing until 1947.

First, Jackie Robinson broke down the color barrier. Then, it was Aaron, making the national pastime ours.

Today is the 40th anniversary of Aaron's 715th home run. Aaron's homer off of Dodgers' Al Downing at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium broke Babe Ruth's long-standing record of 714 home runs.

It was a mark most thought would stand forever. After all, to that point, Ruth was considered the best player America had seen.

For Black America, it was a huge sense of pride. It was one of those moments when you knew where you were when you heard Aaron, a black man, was the MLB HR king.

So much so, that even Dusty Baker - who had a very good baseball career himself - calls it his greatest moment in his career.

And Baker was simply in the on-deck circle, watching Aaron hit that homer on that unforgettable night.

"People ask me, 'What was the highlight of your career?' That was it," Baker told the AP recently.

It was such a big deal that not all celebrated. In fact, Aaron was more relieved than happy.

He was put through hell, getting there. Some couldn't stomach the idea of a black man being The Man.

Aaron received racists hate mail and death threats. His college-age kids had security people watching over them during their dad's pursuit of a piece of American history.

Aaron stood brave and prevailed.

Aaron, now 80, has enjoyed that moment more so now than when it was happening. Fans have been kind to Aaron as the years have gone on. "It means an awful lot to me," he said.

The Braves will wear an Aaron 40th anniversary patch on their uniform sleeves this season to mark the historic occasion.

When I posted it, I saw 24 comments listed. Now it says 1 comment. Not sure if they blew them all out or what.

I registered as TSM, used a legit email address and confirmed the account when I got the message. Then I posted what I posted above. I prefaced it with "Remember when Rob Parker wrote this:" so it wasn't offensive.

Hmmm. Interesting.

EDIT: Just checked my account on there. It lists 1 comment under my stats but I can't view the comment. Son of a...

I think they swatted the second attempt away too. On my profile I see 2 comments under my stats but I can't see any of my posts.

Unless it's in purgatory and they haven't approved it yet? Hmm.
