I also pictured Young as a white man. Didn't know he was black either. Funny.

Howie Kendrick is the poster boy for this phenomenon, imo. I was shocked to find out that dude was black.

A black dude named Howie? Don't see that every day.

This reminds me of the "Junior Spivey is black???" thread. Also mentioned in that thread, Marcus Giles is white.

But yeah, I think Howie Kendrick takes the cake on that one.
(taps little picture of a microphone)... is this thing on?

The question about Gordon is where to take him, now that he's locked officially for the job. I've drafted him in like round 15 in a draft already. I've got another big one coming up--doubt he'll fall that late.

How early is too early?
