    ... I was rooting for one or the other of these men, given that I was so wrapped up in the classic Game 7 NBA playoff showdown between the Spurs and Clippers, I had forgotten completely about their fight tonight. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did that basketball game.

    Because it's still a pathway out of the ghetto for a lot of poor kids.

    And for many it's the only pathway.

    Take it away and you take away their hope for a better life.

    Just ask Manny.
