A southern hoops league sans blacks and foreigners
THANKS TO THE anonymous commenter who alerted me to the latest proposal to illustrate the growing Southern Strategy. Seems that a fellow named Don "Moose" Lewis , a former pro wrestling promoter, told the Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle that he is forming an "All-American Basketball Alliance" down among the sheltering palms that will be composed of an all-white, all-American-born league. Let's see. That would take sports back to the days when Notre Dame was refused an invitation to the Sugar Bowl because it had a black player. But Lewis assured us that he doesn't hate anybody of color nor of non-American origin. Just wants the white guys to be able to play the game the way it should be played. I would go for the idea on one condition: The winner of his league would have to play the winner of the NBA championship to the last man standing. Hmmm.... No, not a pretty thought. Sorry I mentioned it.
