famu-blocks-puntAnytime you attend the Florida Classic you can bet that you will be thoroughly entertained.  One thing is for sure that you will see is two of the best collegiate bands in the country.  Also we all know that the Florida Classic is one of the biggest black college classics in the country. 

Here is a little known fact the Florida Classic is now being sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield.  Among other things both FAMU and BCU are both vying for one of 20 at large playoff spots? Early in the first quarter the Rattlers drew first blood by blocking a Wildcat punt to go up 3-0 on a 19 yard field goal by Trevor Scott in the quarter. 

fire-in-babylonPart of the Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival program at TFF  and one of the entertaining documentaries I got to catch thus far was Fire in Babylon, the gripping story of the West Indian cricket team and its rise to world dominance during the late 1970s and 80s and following the social and cultural upheaval during the 1960s, 70s, and 80s in England, the Caribbean, and apartheid ridden South Africa. 

A sport long dominated by the colonial powers like England, Fire in Babylon brings into focus the larger context and importance of the world championships won by the West Indian cricketers and the hope they gave to a people united against the oppressive forces that govern their countries.
