Heh, thats funny since he could never get a superbowl ring as coach of the Vikings... four times to the dance and no victory... he's much more famous for that unfortunately.

i met this guy a few months ago, he was giving a speech, and he mention how back in the day Bob Petit [a friend] was trying to recruit him to go pro however, he decided not to and to pursue a life dedicated to god..

pretty cool

Question, if more black people would of played basketball back 40-50 yrs ago, would all those famous white players be famous?
