|Jae Michael KPFA Sports Producer|
My name is Jae Michael and I'm the new Sports Producer
at KPFA 94.1 FM in Berkeley, CA. and I received an opportunity to work on project 's like this one, "Sports."
So welcome to my blog ,"Sports and Politics" a take off to the
broadcast show on KPFA where I give two Min Sports Headlines News, Sports and Political real issue's, and now this blog, Where I will share the truth, interviews, educated the public, and give my thought's the on topic. Also sharing this blog with me is Gary M. Scott.
Hey, let's just do it! People may say that sports and politics don’t mix, but I beg to differ. I know it's hard to believe or to wrap your intellectual mind around it, but sports is part of life and life is one big political issue.
Create the end of July
|Darriues Moore Raiders CD|
It's the end of July and the end of mini training camps so let's sum it up with who going to pop off this season. I'm checking out the Raiders wide receiver, number 17, Darriues Moore who’s looking extremely fit & healthy, but “I'm no doctor and this is still OTA”. Moore led the Raiders receivers last year with 51 receptions for 741 yards and seven touchdowns. However Moore got benched during a game late last season for lackluster plays. Now coach Dennis Allen said,"He's a guy that we're counting on being our No. 1 receiver," I would feel the same way Coach Allen after losing, receiver Darrius Heyward and tight end Brandon Myers this off season. Moore is looking good, but like I said “I'm no doctor and this is still OTA camp”.
|Anquan Boldin SF 49ers|
On the other side of Bay at the SF 49er’s OTA camp I did not get a good look at all of the wide receivers. However Anquan Boldin wide receiver, did caught my eyes he show off his skills during the San Francisco 49ers practice catching all passes thrown in his direction making it look easy. I think 49ers got them a keeper. Not only is Anquan working hard on the field he is also working hard to bring awareness to human right issues in Washington DC. Boldin has been a long-time advocate of human rights issues in Africa. Boldin spoke to members of Congress about destitute farmers he encountered in Africa, working on land where gold was in abundance.“You have these people who literally live on top of gold and they see no benefits from it,” to me it's so refreshing to see when athletes take the spotlight off themselves and on a real cause. I'm glad that Anquan is taking a stand, most athletes are so focus on their careers and what is portray in the media about them, they forget sometimes they have the upper hand to do something good for others when the cameras is on them Good job Anquan.
