    One of the bright spots during today's game was Foster. When all seemed hopeless, Foster still slithered through the defense and carved them up for huge gains. I'll be the first to admit that I wasn't sold on Foster at first. His history with injuries and fumbles in college compelled me to doubt him. Boy was I wrong. His vision, elusiveness and speed sure are deceiving. I'm glad we have him.

    How about "The Snake" Foster as a nickname?

    I don't like nickname hand-me-downs myself but that's just me. Besides, that would make Kubes Gary "The Mongoose" Kubiak.

    As a black man I have an issue with how uptight some people would get for calling an afro-american male "bananas"

    Banana is a derogatory term Asians use toward one another.

    I don't think he's afro-American, though; I think he's "Weird."

    I don't think it's necessarily derogatory. My brother-in-law, who's Asian, jokes that he's a "banana."

    It's just simply used to describe an Asian-American who grew up in the States because they are yellow outside, but white inside.

    The N-word isn't derogatory either, when used as a self-descriptor, or among friends. Anyway, it's irrelevant to the conversation, but someone brought up the afro-American thing (whatever that is).

    Apparently "black" is now unspeakable.

    Oh, no! I just said it. :mariopalm:
