The hell? Why all the hate?
Was browsing Tanforan with my girl today and amidst all the asians playing in some Yu-Gi-Oh tournament I saw a giant black dude with a booth, and said to myself holy s**t thats Bubba Parris.
Went over, shook his hand (wasn't sure if I was going to get my hand back, he's got bearpaws) and spoke to him for a few minutes. There wasn't anyone there, and he seemed kind of excited someone had come over.
I checked out his ring (epic) and asked him what he thought of Harbaugh. He said hey, Michigan guy, can't go wrong.
Then I asked him what he thought about Sing, and he said he was done as soon as he hitched his wagon to a dying horse (Alex). I agreed. He also said Harbaugh is actually open, and not 100% set in his ways like Sing was. f**king Sing.
He seemed like a nice guy, we spoke for maybe 10 minutes. He asked me how old i was (20) and he said yeah, shame none of us younger fans got to see the glory days. They're just a fable to us.
Got an autographed pic for 20 bucks.
