The "Over/Under on the N-Word" at the Linc

The Philadelphia City Paper's Ted Hesson was at the Eagles game Sunday, and counts the times he heard #5 called you-know-what-word by the drunken mouth-breathers in the stands. Of course, by the fourth quarter, I'd imagine it was more along the lines of "that [n-word] has four touchdowns!"

In the meantime, Howard Bryant- a great, great addition to has a dynamite piece on the last few months of intersections between race and sports, interspersed with all the hate mail he's gotten from all sides. Just as with McNabb, the reaction to the piece proves its author right.
