1001 Black Men — #123

I could be that I have Superbowl on the brain, but it seems that everywhere I look I’m seeing big middle-aged guys who look like they must have been football players when they were younger. This includes my barber who, in fact, did play football when he was in school. The man in this drawing appeared to be about mid-40s. I saw him at the big Whole Foods in downtown Oakland. He was around 6’2″ and solid 250. My guess? Lineback for either  Big Ten school or an HBCU.

When it’s NBA championship season, if wonder if I’ll start spotting for hoop players everywhere I look!
