Tom Jackson, Michael Irvin, and Shannon Sharpe are living in heaven right now.

Even better, no matter what happens a black coach will end up winning the Super Bowl.

It shouldn't even be about race, it should be about how good of a coach both Dungy and Smith are, but I assure you that Jackson, Sharpe, and Irvin will remind us for the next two weeks that there are two black coaches in the Super Bowl, and one will win it.

It's going to be a story for 2 endless weeks, just like every story every year leading up to the Super Bowl.

This is one of the last hurdles to be cleared in the NFL (short of black ownership). The NFL has done an outstanding job of breaking down barriers, they should be applauded for that. And maybe next year, a player's/coach's will be less noteworthy.

In a game that focused on the quarterbacks -- Williams because he was the first black to play the position in the Super Bowl, and Denver's John Elway because of his overall brilliance -- Williams staged one of pro football's greatest big-game performances. The ecstatic Cooke hailed Williams, extending heartfelt congratulations "not just to a black quarterback, but to a great quarterback."
Williams out-Elwayed Elway with his deep passes, and lobbed shorter ones with the precision of an artist. The crowd behind the Redskins bench roared for the first time since the kickoff when Williams hit Sanders on a fly pattern, an 80-yard message that Washington would be heard from.

PITTSBURGH -- Mike Tomlin, the defensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings, was hired by the Pittsburgh Steelers -- the first black head coach in the team's 74-year history
He accepted the job Sunday night and the hiring was announced Monday, with the contract to be completed later in the day. He was negotiating a four-year contract expected to pay him about $2.5 million a year. The Steelers will hold a press conference at 3:30 p.m. ET Monday.

Croom is doing ok right now. He has struggled at times as Jackie Sherill left a god awful mess in Starkville for him. His win over Bama this year gave him breathing room for now. Kentucky's Offensive Coordinator in Joker Phillips most likely will be the next black head coach in the SEC when he takes over for Rich Brooks in a year or two.

Awareness of examples of successful role models helps insprire kids. Black kids aren't any different than white kids in that way. There are plenty of things that kids don't have the confidence that they can achieve. Role models help move kids to do great things. That doesn't just happen on it's own.

The thing about it that gets me is... kids don't know what a successful role model is supposed to be these days....

The average young black kid would be more inclined to look up to Michael Vick or T.O., than he would Tony Dungy or Lovie Smith. That's why I won't bitch about them making a big deal about this situation... If this one situation can give a young black kid a role model other than a rapper or sports thug, then it's probably a good thing.

Okay, so my mom calls me today. She asked if I saw the game last night. I say yes. She says she's happy that the "blue team" won, since they'd never been to a Super Bowl. I'm rolling my eyes at this point. She's also happy the Bears got in because it'd been so long. I asked her if she'd ever root for KC in that scenario (she doesn't like the Chiefs). She said she might have to if they could ever make it past the playoffs.

Anyway, she goes on two tell me about the historic event of there being two African American head coaches in the Super Bowl. I told her that the QB's were both white. She said, "So?" I told her that's exactly my sentiment about the coach thing. It doesn't matter. I hate the media.

Vanilla, that's the point you are missing. Do you have kids? I have 4 kids 3 girls and one boy and its tough out there. Kids aren't like they use to be. They fight on a dime, they are having kids way to early and you also have these parents that are young themselves and don't know how to raise them. So when you have a kid out there that is raised poorly and has no male role model in his life, its HARD. My first post was wrong because I said it would help black kids, but thats what I know. Jaz was right it should help any kid that needs that needs a role model black or white.

Because in some ways all humans are basically simplistic creatures who understand that which they can relate to. In an exaggerated sense, t's the same reason that my son would have a lot harder time looking up to a rattle snake as a role model. In a less exaggerated sense, it's why a boy needs a father as a role model.

It doesn't have to be about color. But with today's media that's what we get... that's the juiciest angle for them and generates the biggest response, so we're stuck with it. I think the majority can agree that it "shouldn't" be about color, but our society is still hung up on it. And because our society is still hung up on it, young kids are going to look toward people of their own race first for role models. That's not right, but we're not going to change that social mindset before the SB, so what's the harm in using this as an opportunity to show kids that anybody can make it to the top and be a SB coach?

It's not that it's "okay". It's that it's not "impossible" or "a waste of time". The parents of the sorts of kids we are talking about likely had crappy role models as well.

Congratulations... so you understand the significance of kids and their need to learn by example or experience rather than merely trying to understand some abstract idea that they have no connection with.

Hell, it's not even just kids... I'm sure you consider yourself an eternal student of your artwork. You observe other artists, gain inspiration from visual experiences, etc.

Imagine trying to become a great artist based on someone telling you... "hey kid, I know you've never even so much as seen a crayon before, but trust me... you can be a great artist".

You of all people should likely appreciate the role of seeing something done before really understanding what it means and believing that you might be able to do that yourself.
