  • Interesting FB read in Wall Street Journal

    This an interesting read on how Haitian immigrants are starting to make their presence known in the FB world. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1259...nDepthCarousel

    The thing I really liked in the story is featured at the end

    In his way, Mr. Luc is helping some families get that chance. He says he won't announce which college he will be attending until after the playoffs. He explains that, by remaining uncommitted, he knows scouts will keep coming -- and keep seeing other Titan players looking for scholarships.

    "When the recruiters come, they don't watch me only. They watch the whole team. And whoever catches their eyes, catches their eyes," he says with a shy grin. "I just don't want to leave here and leave some of my teammates behind."
    On this note at least (I don't know any more about the person), he appears to a great young man. Props to him.

    but how do these Haitian immigrants stack up against the renowned "angry Samoans"?
