Hey all,

Today in East Lansing Michigan the State Championship in Boys Class A was held at the Breslin Center.

Detroit’s Pershing High played against Kalamazoo’s Central High School, it was a spectacular game! Pershing won 90 – 73!

I’ve written about Keith Appling, one of Pershing’s star athletes before, but today he REALLY shined.


I’m not discounting the rest of his hard playing teammates, it’s just that Keith broke the record today for most points scored in a Finals Game (49).

My heart is filled with pride for all those behind this young man. His mother and his grandmother and grandfather – his uncles and aunts, his siblings, all of his family!

And though we all love and support him, I know that it wasn’t us out there on the court today – it was you – so Keith I’m very, very Proud of YOU! Keep going and never forget your foundation….

State Champions!

Sooo much bad news around. Thank God for some GOOD NEWS!!!


See ya


Hey all,

Today we learn a word from the dictionary.




a person who spends, or has spent, his or her money or substance with wasteful extravagance; spendthrift.

“And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.”
(Luke 15:13-14)

Hey all.

Lately there’s been some buzz about the new billboard that MGM Grand has up in Detroit. Some say that it looks satanic, what do you think?

MGM Billboard

I think that it’s simply “truth in advertising”. If it offends you, then I think that ought to be a signal to you to stay out! As a matter of fact I think this could start a trend in advertising, maybe bars could use this fellow on their billboards….

dope houses could use this fine fellow….

I mean you ought to know what to expect from the services rendered. Although this might be a truer example of the average experience….
