“DECALOGUE, n. A series of commandments, ten in number --just enough to permit an intelligent selection for observance, but not enough to embarrass the choice. Following is the revised edition of the Decalogue, calculated for this meridian.
Thou shalt no God but me adore:
'Twere too expensive to have more.
No images nor idols make For Robert Ingersoll to break.
Take not God's name in vain; select A time when it will have effect.
Work not on Sabbath days at all, But go to see the teams play ball.
Honor thy parents. That creates For life insurance lower rates.
Kill not, abet not those who kill; Thou shalt not pay thy butcher's bill.
Kiss not thy neighbor's wife, unless Thine own thy neighbor doth caress
Don't steal; thou'lt never thus compete Successfully in business. Cheat.
Bear not false witness --that is low -- But "hear 'tis rumored so and so."
Cover thou naught that thou hast not By hook or crook, or somehow, got. --G.J.”
“If you nominate a guy, he'll be on that list. They're not really considered for the team. That selection process began a year and a half in advance . . . The players think they're being considered but they're not.”
“I think our shot selection the first half was not so great, but we picked it up the second half. No one should be mad. I think we played a great game, a good practice game for the sectionals coming up.”
“The black coaching candidates were at least as strong, if not stronger, than those who were selected. Each team could say what their justifications were, but. . . it still shows that there's an uphill battle for African-American coaches.”
