My brother on Isiah Thomas


My brother David has a blog that I read regularly. He makes me laugh, and I’m not sure if it’s because he’s my brother, or because he’s really funny. When we were kids, he used to rip off killer impersonations of my parents’ friends. My mom would yell at him to stop, only she’d be laughing and yelling at the same time. Anyhow, he lives in Florida, and we’re nothing alike. But he’s my brother, and I love him.

Hence, today’s post comes from his blog:

no doubting Thomas

It’s Wednesday-Hump Day. Middle of the week. I don’t like sports-have no interest in it. That said, The big news is about Isiah Thomas. The former New York Knick will be coaching college basketball. And not some big name school like Uconn, Notre Dame, etc. He is going to FIU-Florida International University. Miami’s Public University. And he is donating his first year salary back to the school. Now everyone is wondering, why is the big shot New Yorker at FIU, as opposed to some more prestigious school. And I have the answer-he likes Latin woman. That’s right. At Notre Dame, probably a lot of boring smart people who like cold weather go there. Even University of Miami, I would imagine a lot of people are from all over and live on campus-plus for that big money school you expect big money stars. FIU, though, genius. He can lay low, get with some Latino commuter students from Kendall, and get back to work, lay on the beach, and coach some ball if he has time.
