NFL = Niggas For Life

For the first time ever, we have not one, but two black coaches in the Superbowl. It took 86 years, but finally it happened.

First African-American head coach: Fritz Pollard, 1921 Akron, 1925 Hammond

First African-American quarterback in the NFL: Willie Thrower (Michigan State), Chicago Bears 1953 (Thats right, Da Bears)

First African-American head coach, modern era: Art Shell, 1989 Los Angeles Raiders

First African-American head coach to take team to Super Bowl: Lovie Smith, 2006 Chicago Bears; Tony Dungy, 2006 Indianapolis Colts

Now isn't it appropriate that the Superbowl is played in Febuary, Black History Month.
