Bernard Pollard: A Hero Is Born

Rufus NavarroContributor ISeptember 10, 2008

Every so often, an athlete comes along that transcends sports. 

On Sunday, Sept. 7, 2008, a hero was born.

Chiefs S Bernard Pollard brought down pretty white-boy Tom Brady, in what was the greatest play ever.

Why? Why is it a good thing? Because those pretty whites need a reality check.

Since Brady broke his leg, things have been looking up for us blacks. 

Barack Obama is rocketing to the sky. If he doesn't win, I'm going to lose all faith in people. 

11 black men just won an Olympic gold medal for basketball. Prince + Kidd = one full black. One white guy one, but half of him gave away his medal.

Bernard Pollard will go down in history as one of the most influential black men this decade. 

He single-helmetedly stopped Bill Belichick from cheating his way to another Super Bowl. 

This opens the door for Mike Tomlin and Co. to win one for the Afro race.

Bernard Pollard, welcome to history.
