JJ Paul Robeson's birthday (9 April 1898) (18) RE: Paul Robeson's birthday (9 November 1898) 10 Nov 06

It would have been apropos if 9 November actually was the birthday of Paul Robeson, All-American football player, because on that date his alma mater won perhaps the greatest victory in its long history, 28-25 over Lousiville.

One can imagine him looking down and smiling at young men of European and African extraction playing the game without feeling the need to kill one another. And maybe he got an extra laugh out of the winning field goal being kicked by Jeremy Ito, whose ancestors weren't either.
