A Minneapolis poster designer Adam Turman’s has created a t-shirt to help bring awareness in fighting breast cancer but instead has caused a controversy among many women. The ‘Save Second Base’ t-shirt displays the slogan “Don’t Let Breast Cancer Steal Second Base” along with a very robust woman all with the innuendo for copping a feel.
However Kate-Madonna Hindes, who is currently suffering from cancer saw the image on Turman’s site and took to Twitter to voice her displeasure causing an outrage of offended women.
The t-shirts Truman are selling on his website go for $25 with all of the proceeds, he says, goes back to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer an American Cancer Society. The only costs that the consumer is paying for is the wholesale cost of the shirts and inks. Turman having donated his artwork, time and money to help creating awareness against the cause never in wild dreams thought it would spew so much controversy.
Is it distasteful or just another means in trying to find a cure in one of the leading causes of death in the United States?

The 2010 Monday Night Football season has come to a close with a back in forth game between the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons and that means it’s time to for Rudy J to hand the Monday Night Football Championship belt back over to myself. The 2010 season was not even close as I smoked the other guys for the widest margin of victory in the history of Sports Grind Entertainment, and we’ve have been doing this since 2004.
The final records for everyone involved was:
Rudy J 10-7
As with every year the winner gets the distinction of being number 1, a round of drinks, and this year gets a brand new Flip MinoHD.

Sports Grind Entertainment would like to wish you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving and for you to also keep our soldiers here and abroad in your hearts and minds this holiday season. If you happen to leave town for this week, have a safe travel back.
It’s now November 1st and that means National Breast Cancer Awareness Month has just ended, however that doesn’t mean you should stop your support. Sports Grind Entertainment thinks very strongly of “Pink” support. It’s a serious issue that holds very dear to the Sports Grind family.
We strongly encourage you to continue to do your part, your a son or daughter to a mother out there and it could easily effect your family.
Sports Grind Entertainment wants to wish you a fun and safe Halloween. If you have any Halloween costume pictures you would like to share with Sports Grind Entertainment, we sure would like to see them.
It’s October 1st and that means it National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Sports Grind Entertainment thinks very strongly of “Pink” support. It’s a serious issue that holds very dear to the Sports Grind family.
So for the entire month of October any time an athlete, company or entertainer speaks out and it makes its way onto the Sports Grind web page they will be speaking in “Pink” instead of its foundation color of red, as you may have already noticed from last year at this time.
We strongly encourage you to do your part, your a son or daughter to a mother out there and it could easily effect your family.
The 2010 NBA Playoffs have came to a close Thursday night with the Los Angeles Lakers defeating the Boston Celtics to earn the title back-to-back champions and that means it’s time to hand the NBA Playoffs Championship belt over to Calvin Casey. The predictions started early on the Sports Grind Entertainment as I declared shortly after last years championship and the signing of Ron Artest or resigning of Lamar Odom that the Los Angeles Lakers would be back in the finals. It didn’t stop there as Calvin Casey picked the Boston Celtics to appear in the NBA Finals before training camp had ended and Kevin Garnett still hobbling up court or before Rajon Rondo developed into one of the NBA’s elite.
But once the playoffs became real and our predictions where put to the test, Calvin Casey ran away with it only losing one series and that was him predicting the San Antonio Spurs to defeat the Phoenix Suns in the second round of the Western Conference. Here’s a look at the final records for everyone involved:
Calvin Casey 12-1
Rudy J 9-4
As with every year the winner gets the distinction of being number 1, a round of drinks, and in our side wager wins a brand new iPod touch.
Mother’s Day is on Sunday, and tradition around Major League Baseball calls for the following measures of appreciation as well as going to bat against breast cancer.
MLB again joins forces with Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world’s largest breast cancer organization, on Mother’s Day to help raise awareness of the disease and raise funding for treatment and the pursuit of a cure, with hundreds of Major Leaguers swinging pink bats produced by Louisville Slugger and stamped with the MLB breast cancer logo. Many players will also wear pink wristbands and the symbolic pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness on their uniforms, as will all on-field personnel.
In addition, MLB and Komen announced the winners of the 2010 Honorary Bat Girl Contest, an appreciation of their inspiration in coping with breast cancer and commitment to the cause. Clubs playing at home on Mother’s Day will pay tribute to their Honorary Bat Girl during on-field celebrations; visiting clubs on Mother’s Day will select another date in May to recognize their winner. Nearly 5,000 testimonials were submitted by women survivors.
The Mother’s Day Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer program is one of several cancer-related initiatives supported by MLB. Others are Stand Up to Cancer, the mission of which is to support the groundbreaking scientific research aimed at getting new cancer treatments to patients in an accelerated time frame; the Prostate Cancer Foundation Home Run Challenge, which helps increase awareness of prostate cancer and raise money for the search for a cure as part of MLB Father’s Day activities; and Play Sun Smart, a league-wide, season-long skin-cancer-awareness program in conjunction with the MLB Players Association and the American Academy of Dermatology.
The Sports Grind Entertainment family holds the fight against cancer deeply close to our heart and supports anything helping stop this deadly disease.

Sports Grind Entertainment has no idea what the real meaning of St. Patrick’s Day is or what is the reason why it is celebrated (no disrespect, we just don’t). However, like many of us that fall into that category and use it as an excuse to be out among the public to drink on green beer or down as many Irish Car Bombs as you can, we hope that your safe out there today and please be responsible.
And please don’t be that person that goes around stating the obvious that your not wearing any green, I’m wearing green in my wallet OK. So just please don’t be that person today, some of us still have hangovers from last night.
On this day in 1872 Charlotte Ray became the first black woman lawyer. She was both a teacher and a student at Howard University while teaching there she registered in the Law Department; aware of the school’s questionable policy on admitting women, she applied under the name of “C.E. Ray” and was admitted. In the law school she specialized in commercial law.
Soon after her admission to the bar, she was forced to give up her practice due to poor business, and by 1879 had returned to New York where she worked as a teacher. After 1895 Ray became active in the National Association of Colored Women.
In March of 2006, The Northeastern University School of Law chapter of Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity International chose to honor Ray by naming their newly-chartered chapter after her, in recognition of her place as the first female, African-American attorney.
On this day in 1964, the Kentucky boxer known to all as Cassius Clay, changed his name to Muhammad Ali as he accepted Islam and rejected Christianity. “I believe in the religion of Islam. I believe in Allah and in peace…I’m not a Christian anymore.”
Muhammad Ali would go on to become a three-time World Heavyweight Champion, who is widely considered one of the greatest heavyweight championship boxers of all time. As an amateur, he won a gold medal in the light heavyweight division at the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome.
In 1967, Ali refused to be inducted into the U.S. military based on his religious beliefs and opposition to the Vietnam War. He was arrested and found guilty on draft evasion charges, stripped of his boxing title, and his boxing license was suspended. He was not imprisoned, but did not fight again for nearly four years while his appeal worked its way up to the U.S. Supreme Court, where it was successful.
Ali was involved in several historic boxing matches against Joe Frazier and George Foreman. He suffered only five losses while amassing 56 wins. In 1999, Ali was crowned “Sportsman of the Century” by Sports Illustrated.
Martin Luther King Jr. an American clergyman, activist and prominent leader in the African-American civil rights movement. His main legacy was to secure progress on civil rights in the United States, and he has become a human rights icon.
A Baptist minister that was ordained on February 25th 1948, King became a civil rights activist early in his career. He led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott and helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1957. King’s efforts led to the 1963 March on Washington, where King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech. There, he raised public consciousness of the civil rights movement and established himself as one of the greatest orators in U.S. history.
In 1964, King became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his work to end racial segregation and racial discrimination through civil disobedience and other non-violent means.
By the time of his death in 1968, he had refocused his efforts on ending poverty and opposing the Vietnam War, both from a religious perspective. King was assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee. He was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977 and Congressional Gold Medal in 2004.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was established as a U.S. national holiday in 1986.
Frank E. Petersen Jr. became the first black general in the United States Marine Corps. He was also the first African-American Marine Corps aviator.
Peterson retired from the Marine Corps in 1988 after 38 years of service. At the time of his retirement he was by date of aviator designation the senior ranking aviator in the U.S. Marine Corps and the United States Navy with respective titles of “Silver Hawk” and “Gray Eagle”. His date of designation as an aviator also precedes all other aviators in the U.S. Air Force and Army.
Petersen served two combat tours in two conflicts: Korea (1953) and Vietnam (1968). His first tactical assignment was with Marine Fighter Squadron 212 during the Korean conflict. He flew over 350 combat missions with over 4,000 hours in various fighter/attack aircraft.
William Edward Burghardt Du Bois was born on this date. W.E.B. Du Bois was an American civil rights activist, Pan-Africanist, sociologist, historian, author, and editor. He attempted virtually every possible solution to the problem of twentieth-century racism, scholarship, propaganda, integration, national self-determination, human rights, cultural and economic separatism, politics, international communism, expatriation, third world solidarity.
Du Bois wrote many books and his most significant works are The Philadelphia Negro, The Souls of Black Folk, John Brown, Black Reconstruction, and Black Folk, Then and Now. His book The Negro influenced the work of several pioneer Africanist scholars, such as Drusilla Dunjee Houston and William Leo Hansberry.
Du Bois is viewed by many as a modern day prophet highlighted by his “Credo” a prose-poem written in 1900.
I believe in God who made of one blood all races that dwell on earth. I believe that all men, black and brown and white, are brothers, varying, through Time and Opportunity, in form and gift and feature, but differing in no essential particular, and alike in soul and in the possibility of infinite development.
Especially do I believe in the Negro Race; in the beauty of its genius, the sweetness of its soul, and its strength in that meekness which shall yet inherit this turbulent earth.
I believe in pride of race and lineage and self; in pride of self so deep as to scorn injustice to other selves; in pride of lineage so great as to despise no man’s father; in pride of race so chivalrous as neither to offer bastardy to the weak nor beg wedlock of the strong, knowing that men may be brothers in Christ, even though they be not brothers-in-law.
I believe in Service — humble reverent service, from the blackening of boots to the whitening of souls; for Work is Heaven, Idleness Hell, and Wage is the “Well done!” of the Master who summoned all that labor and are heavy laden, making no distinction between the black sweating cotton-hands of Georgia and the First Families of Virginia, since all distinction not based on deed is devilish and not divine.
I believe in the Devil and his angels, who want only work to narrow the opportunity of struggling human beings, especially if they be black; who spit in the faces of the fallen, strike them that cannot strike again, believe the worst and work to prove it, hating the image which their Maker stamped on a brother’s soul.
I believe in the Prince of Peace. I believe that War is Murder. I believe that armies and navies are at bottom the tinsel and braggadocio of oppression and wrong; and I believe that the wicked conquest of weaker and darker nations by nations whiter and stronger but foreshadows the death of that strength.
I believe in Liberty for all men; the space to stretch their arms and their souls; the right to breathe and the right to vote, the freedom to choose their friends, enjoy the sunshine and ride on the railroads, uncursed by color; thinking, dreaming, working as they will in a kingdom of God and love.
I believe in the training of children black even as white; the leading out of little souls into the green pastures and beside the still waters, not for pelf or peace, but for Life lit by some large vision of beauty and goodness and truth; lest we forget, and the sons of the fathers, like Esau, for mere meat barter their birthright in a mighty nation.
Finally, I believe in Patience — patience with the weakness of the Weak and the strength of the Strong, the prejudice of the ignorant and the ignorance of the Blind; patience with the tardy triumph of Joy and the mad chastening of Sorrow — patience with God.

Otis Boykin on February 21, 1965 patented the Electrical Resistor. U.S. 2,972,726 Which is the electrical device used in all guided missiles and IBM computers, plus 26 other electronic devices including a control unit for an artificial heart stimulator (pacemaker).
He began his career as a laboratory assistant testing automatic controls for aircraft. One of Boykin’s first achievements was a type of resistor used in computers, radios, television sets, and a variety of electronic devices.
Some of his other inventions included a variable resistor used in guided missiles, small component thick-film resistors for computers. The innovations in resistor design reduced the cost of producing electronic controls for radio and television, for both military and commercial applications. Other inventions by Otis Boykin also included a burglarproof cash register and chemical air filter.
In 1895 abolitionist Frederick Douglass died on this date in Washington, DC. Douglas was born into slavery and is best known for his role in bringing the harsh realities of slavery to the attention of white Americans, at the same time being a living example of the fallacy of claims that black Americans were intellectually inferior to whites. He was an American abolitionist, women’s suffragist, editor, orator, author, statesman and reformer.
He was a firm believer in the equality of all people, whether black, female, Native American, or recent immigrant. He was fond of saying, “I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong.”
Vonetta Flowers became the first black gold medalist in the history of the Winter Olympic Games. She and partner Jull Brakken won the inagural women’s two-person bobsled event.
