Manny Ramirez


Video, Manny gets frisky with teammate Julian Tavarez.



Manuel "Manny" Aristides Ramírez Onelcida (born May 30, 1972 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic) is a Dominican-American professional baseball player who plays for the Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball. In 1985, Ramirez joined his parents who relocated from the Dominican Republic to Washington Heights, a predominantly Dominican neighborhood in New York City. He played outfield for George Washington High School from 1989-1991. - Source, Wikipedia

Prior to being a slugger for the Dodgers, he played with the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox. Late Ramirez was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers after having a few tumultuous seasons with the Red Sox.

Rumors and questions surfaced on blogs about Manny's sexuality when he was caught on tape licking rubbing his teammate Julian Tavarez' head in the nappy boy Red Sox dugout (above, video) in 2007. Personally, I don't know anything about Manny Ramirez' sexuality, but whatever case, I want to see it's his business. What I find both appealing and masculine is that a big man like him is so naturally affectionate with other men in public.

And...it hasn't kept Ramirez from being one of baseball's top sluggers.

Jerome Bettis





As one of pro football's stellar athletes, Jerome Bettis is now a commentator for NBC Sports. His NFL nickname is The Bus for obvious reasons. Bettis can be seen on NBC's Sunday Night Football. The 5-10, 275lbs King-sized brotha, finished his career after 13 seasons as the 5th leading rusher in NFL history.

After earning a Super Bowl ring in 2006 with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Bettis retired from the NFL. He announced his retirement in his hometown of Detroit on the Super Bowl XL champions' podium. Bettis founded The Bus Stops Here Foundation to aid underprivileged children and is an advocate for asthma awareness. (Source)

Notorious - The Movie



In case you've missed it, the trailer for the movie, Notorious, has been out for about a month. The flik, of course, is about The Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie Smalls, who was born Christopher Wallace. He was a famed New York City-based rapper of Jamaican descent. He was gunned down in Las Vegas, Nevada in 1997 - six months after the tragic death of another rapper, the legendary Tupac Shakur.

With Brooklyn rapper Gravy (née Jamal Woolard) playing Biggie and Derek Luke (Miracle at St. Anna) as P. Diddy, 'Notorious' could make the grade. The movie is scheduled to be released on Jan. 16, 2009, and it's release date is not without controversy. 'Notorious' will be released a day after Martin Luther King's birthday.

Brian Orakpo



For two weeks in a row, the Big 12 Conference's Texas Longhorns are ranked #1 in the BCS Standings - the national college football poll.

Longhorn Brian Orakpo gives a whole new meaning to "Big 12". With 8 sacks on the season, Orakpo has been characterized as a 'Sack Machine'. The Longhorns' big defensive end may help keep the steers #1 for weeks to come. Regardless of where the Longhorns stand in the polls for the rest of the season though, Orakpo is #1 in my black book.

The whopping 6'4, 260lb defensive lineman, who is of Nigerian descent, was raised in Houston, Texas.

Stats
Ht: 6-4 Wt: 260
Position: DE
Date of Birth: 07/31/1986
Birthplace: Houston, TX
Class: RS - Junior
High School: Lamar HS
(Houston, TX)

Heavy D


Heavy D was born Dwight Errington Myers in Jamaica in 1967 and moved with his family to Mt. Vernon, NY, as a young child. He discovered rap music at age eight and by junior high was making his own demo tapes.

He later formed the Boyz with high-school friends DJ Eddie F (born Eddie Ferrell), Trouble T-Roy (born Troy Dixon), and G-Wiz (born Glen Parrish). Their demo tape found its way to Def Jam executive Andre Harrell, who was in the process of forming his own label, Uptown. Harrell made Heavy D & the Boyz the first artists signed to Uptown in 1986, and they released their debut album, Living Large, in 1987.

The singles "Mr. Big Stuff" and "The Overweight Lover's in the House" established Heavy D's image among rap fans. In 2005, Heavy D had lost 160 pounds so that he could elevate his acting career.

Cowboy Troy


At 6'5, 200-and-something pounds Cowboy Troy is huge in many ways - height, width, and miscellaneous (Hint: just look at the video below long enough and you'll get it). Hmmmmm...talk about raw hide.

While performing on stage, this big boned brotha gyrates his hips as good as any average-sized man. Check out the video below. While you might not be able to make out a word he's saying because the video looks as if it was made by a small digital camera, actions movements speak louder than words.

Cowboy Troy was born Troy Coleman (December 18, 1970) in Victoria, Texas 90 miles south of Houston, Texas, but was raised in the Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas area. He graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a degree in psychology.

Although his music is a little eccentric for my music tastes, on May 17, 2005 Cowboy Troy released his first major-label solo album, Loco Motive. Then he released Black in the Saddle in 2007.

Cowboy Troy is the innovator of 'Hick-Hop'. His music is a combination country, hip-hop and rock, and he is known to spit a rap in the middle of a country tune. Coleman grew up in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area listening to country artists (Charlie Daniels, Jerry Reed, Kenny Rogers), rock artists (ZZ Top, KISS, Boston and the Eagles) and rap artists (Run DMC and LL Cool J) who subsequently influenced his style of music.

Fatback



Damm!! - spelled in hip-hop/urban lingo - sums up the photos perfectly.

The juicy rear above belongs to unknown thick brotha, but I am willing to bet that we could identify him if he were in our presence.

Below is a video montage of The Fatback Band - a funk and disco group from the 70's and 80's. The name of the group and their extended funk/disco tune, "Backstrokin' (Looking For That Good Stuff)", befits the photos above.

Eamonn Walker



Below is a very homoerotic video clip from HBO's hit series, OZ, featuring Eamonn Walker.



Eamonn Walker (born 12 June 1962 in London) to a Grenadian father and a Trinidadian mother is an English film, television and theatre actor.

In the United States he is perhaps best known in for playing Kareem Said in the HBO television series Oz, for which he won a CableACE Award, and as Winston, the gay, black thorn in Alf Garnett's side in In Sickness and in Health and John Othello in the 2001 ITV1 production of Othello, for which he won a BMF film and television award.

While Eamonn is not necessarily a "big" brotha, he is without a doubt a juicy one.

Kingz of Comedy: Deray Davis


The clip below is hilarious. It is a scene from Code Name: The Cleaner (2007) where Davis played Ronnie.



Deray Davis was born and raised on the south side of Chicago. The comedian-turned-actor DeRay Davis developed and honed a hip, sardonic, streetwise mentality at an early age and parlayed it smoothly and efficiently into the comedy-club circuit. Throughout, the comic wove vulgar and droll, yet also telling and deeply personal, routines around the subjects of race, poverty, and his challenging experiences growing up in the Windy City projects with a dysfunctional African-American family.

Davis has also appeared in Nick Cannon's Wild 'N Out on MTV and in Lil Flip's (rapper) Game Over Video And Chris Brown's music video for "Yo (Excuse Me Miss)." He also recently appeared in Three 6 Mafia's music video for "Doe Boy Fresh."
