Darryl Dawkins

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« I put the words of a NYTimes media pro man to voice in this Darryl Dawkins obituary .  At the moment youtube reports seventeen views.  Several indicators tells me it will have four-digit views in a month, so . . . . Dear kind readers: Please consider taking a moment to reflect on the colorful life of Darryl Dawkins written by Bruce Weber of the New York Times.  If you click now you can be in the first twenty listeners rather than waiting and being preceded by more than one thousand other people.  Sincerely, Tom Doody  I can hear the excitement in my voice as I remember being twelve years old when Chocolate Thunder was smashing backboards.  I imagine charging the basket in my Cleveland Ohio suburb driveway.  Punching the double Dees of his name made this skinny white kids feel powerful.  Dawkins was fun, Weber skillfully highlights the late NBAer’s flamboyance, and the enthusiasm in my voice is authentic. »» about me  302-990-2346  twitter  nearlincoln@hotmail.com  contact us
