“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

I have been in television production for over thirty years. That’s right, over thirty years. Since I first started “Music Inner City TV” in 1990, I have always mixed entertainment and sports.

Because in reality, sports and entertainment mix. Because sports is entertainment. When I watch a NBA game, it is entertainment, when I watch a NFL game, it is entertainment. When I watch boxing, it is entertainment. When I watch track and field, it is entertainment.

When Tiger Woods is leading a PGA event, it is entertainment. When I watch Venus and Serena play, it is entertainment. When I watch a college football game, it is entertainment. When I watch a college basketball game, it is entertainment.

Now let me get to MLB. MLB is a sport that is stuck in 1948. Last time I checked it is May 2021. MLB plays “God Bless America” at the 7th. Give me a freakin break readers!!

Truth be told, do you think the few African Americans in attendance at MLB games are happy to stand up and sing “God Bless America”? I do not think so ladies and gentlemen.

Plus MLB is a very slow game. With pitchers taking up to 25 to 30 seconds to pitch. And batters messing with their batting gloves sometimes after EVERY pitch!! EVEN WHEN THEY DO NOT SWING OR TAKE A BALL!!

This makes long three hour or so games. A main reason why young inner city African American youth turn to hoops and football by age 12. Do not believe me? Then go to a major city and attend a high school or college baseball game and the teams will be mainly white sorry to say ladies and gentlemen.

A 20 second clock is needed in MLB. And batters cannot mess with their batting gloves. They have to stay at the plate and be ready for the next pitch.

This is why MLB attendance has went downhill the last few years before COVID19. Plenty of vacant seats in MLB games before the virus. Singing of “God Bless America” at the 7th inning ain’t helping to reach inner city African American youth in America. Their was ONLY 69 African American players in MLB last season.

MLB was fun to me and many African Americans when our Seattle Mariners has Hall Of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. playing here in Seattle. A very very exciting player.

Just like the San Diego Padres young star Fernando Tatis Jr. This young man is one of few exciting players in my opinion in MLB. And another reason why I love sports. When this young man comes to the plate, like Grif Jr. was, you never know what exciting thing may happen.

Tatis Jr, is getting heat from old timers or even younger fans because when he hits a long homer, he flips the bat and has fun running the bases. Yes, he gets pitchers mad at him too. SHOUT OUT to Fernando Tatis Jr. for making baseball fun to watch. Another reason why I love sports.

Thanks to the Seattle Mariners for allowing me for years to interview Mariner players and visiting player and managers at T-Mobile Park. My goal is to interview African American players to try to get young kids to know African American players in Major League Baseball.

GIVE ME A BREAK!! Fernando Jr. is having fun!! Making his growing fan base that includes me happy! MLB needs more Fernando Tatis Jr type players. Guys who grab the “hip-hop generation” not the “rock n roll” generation” that MLB is full of. Statistics show MLB is very popular among late 50’s and older white folks.

Do not get mad at me. These are facts. I want to have fun watching MLB. But right now I cannot. Unlike watching NFL and NBA games. I love to watch Curry knocking down 3 after 3 after 3. Or make a great drive to the hoop.

I love to watch the budding star, Luka Doncic of the Mavericks play and Damian Lillard of Portland play and of course Lebron play and many many other NBA stars. I love to watch former guest on “Music Inner City TV” our own Russell Wilson play. I love to watch Pat Mahomes play.

I love to watch young Jason Tatum play and many many other play. I love sports because it is release from being a black man in America and it is a release from the terrible COVID19.

We need fans to return to MLB and NFL and NBA games. It will make the games much more fun to watch. I hope it will happen very very soon. Not having fans at games is NOT fun at all. Having fans at games makes it fun for players also. Do not believe me? Just ask a player.

“Sports Inner City TV” is needed. Coming at ya with news and issues from the African American point of view and people of color point of view.

In reality, their is not to many African Americans/people of color in the sports media here in the Pacific Northwest and this is a fact. Very few on sports radio and on TV. The NBA and NFL is 70% to 75% African American so programs like mine is badly needed.

I hope everyone will watch “Sports Inner City TV” on TV on Comcast Xfinity On Demand and Xfinity X1/Washington State-Oregon and California. And watch us via a webcast here on our website. Do so via your smartphone, tablet, mac or desktop 24 hours a day worldwide!!

Covering the NBA, NFL and MLB and other sports. As I have tried to explain in this article, I have always mixed entertainment and sports in my media. Truth be told as I have said, it is fun covering sports. Oh yeah, PLEASE listen to “MUSIC INNER CITY RADIO” PODCASTS!!

When I first thought about being in broadcasting when I was a teenager, I wanted to be a radio DJ. I have been producing podcasts since 2000. So I am not a johnny come lately like some around here. I consider myself a professional broadcaster.

Covering mainly sports news from the NBA, NFL and MLB. Plus classic soul and hip-hop music and exclusive interviews and public service announcements and more. Just click the “podcast” link and enjoy!!

Special thanks to the Seattle Seahawks, Seattle Mariners, the Dallas Mavericks and the Golden State Warriors for their support. Also to Mr. Network (Theo Hall), Edawg, Craig Jackson, Seattle Mariners lead broadcaster Dave Sims and a big THANK YOU to my longtime friend, Bishop Zachary Bruce.

One thing for sure, I will continue to love sports!!!
