Uhhhh, Bryant, there is a paucity of black athletes in the Olympics because they're already in pro sports, going after the money instead of the going after the sport, for the love of the sport. Oooops! I sounded just like Bryant Gumbel. Except what I said was the truth.

I read the article in a hurry so I might have missed it, but isn't his wife or girlfriend (or both) white?

When I heard this last night, I said to myself, uuh, who the heck cares what Bryant Gumball has to say. The real question might be asked of Bryant. How in holy hell do you have a clue what a Republican Convention might look you pompous black ba$tard, but then I thought maybe it would be in poor taste to sink to his level of name calling.

But didn't the former Nazi supreme commander used to think of black athletes as superior as well? At least in physical prowess? Sure, he believed they were subhuman, but in reality, he feared a black man's athletic abilities.

No and no. Hitler thought that his Aryan ubermenchen would kick the arse of the American team in the '36 Olympics, until Jesse Owens and his teammates proved him wrong. Hitler stormed out of the Olympic stadium in a cold fury and always believed the American victories were a fluke.

I met Jesse Owens about 1960. Great and humble man.

Someone replied to a similar thread on Gum Ball's stupid statement the other day....to the effect of '...so what, the Summer Olympics look like the ANC...'.

So Bryant, WTF's your point?

Jeez Bryant, doncha know that's why the Winter Olympics were invented? Half the World is left out because they don't have these sports locally and all the GOP can watch TV Sports and see themselves.

Even a not-so-bright guy like you must be able to figure that out.

I think his thoughts are correct. I think a law should be past that would base team rosters on the latest census percentages.....

OOPS that sure would mean alot of NBA and MLB blacks would become unemployed!!! (SNICKER).

Well they could move to North Dakota and learn all those winter sports skills and could then play in the NHL or compete in the Winter Olympics.

"these are the world's greatest athletes, despite a paucity of blacks"

Folks, am I mistaken, or did we not send a basketball team to the summer Olympics a few years ago that was either all black or all black save one player, and it got CREAMED by predominantly white European and Hispanic Latin American teams???

Does anyone see the irony in this?

What is an athlete? Is running and jumping alone make someone athletic? In other words why is a wrestler not seen as athletic as a basketball player? Hockey is basketball on ice, yet they are not athletic? Why is a black athlete who runs 100 meters really fast a better athlete than a white one who runs 1000 meters really fast? Why did Sports Illustrated put Tiger Woods on the cover one year proclaiming him the Worlds Greatest Athlete when in the years before Tiger golf was barely called a sport. Mike Tyson was a tough boxer but watching the guy shoot hoops was hilarious.

Bryant Gumbell is a moron and HBO should have fired this racist long ago, but at least every person I know knows this already.

For someone who married a blonde white woman and who couldn't find the hood with a road map, Bryant sure cares about black people. /sarcasm
