BHM 2014 Honors: UPS

What can Brown do for you? More like, "what CAN'T Brown do for you?" UPS employees deliver by truck, plane, train, car, even bike... and they do it all while wearing those oh-so-becoming brown shorts. Whether you want it shipped same day, next day, or in 3-5 business days, the United Parcel Service has you covered. In fact, UPS transports 15 million packages per day. 15 million! That's more deliveries than an obstetrician at a Mormon hospital! So, happy Black History Month, UPS... thanks for always being a company we can count on to deliver.

BHM 2014 Honors: Allen Iverson

Let's get one thing straight, Jordan is the greatest basketball player ever. Don't let anyone get cute and tell you otherwise. If LeBron was really the best, he woulda been in Space Jam. Now that that's settled, let's talk about one of my favorite players ever, Allen Iverson. AI did so many things well: he scored at will, he led the league in steals every year, and he had the best cornrows in the NBA. Of course, there were some things he didn't do so well: rap, manage money, show up to practice. But we ain't talking 'bout practice, we talking about Black History Month and during BHM, we focus on the good things. We focus on the lightning quicks, the stellar handles, the epic press conferences, the throwback in-between game, and the fact that a 6-foot tall guard was the greatest scorer of his generation. With that said, does AI deserve some BHM honors? I think you know The Answer.

BHM 2014 Honors: Timothy Miller

Every Atlanta Braves fan knows there's only one guy you can count to deliver a flawless performance every single time he steps on the diamond at Turner Field: Timothy Miller. Timothy Miller is a classically trained Operatic Tenor who sings "God Bless America" at every Sunday home game, much to the delight of fans, players, broadcasters, viewers, and that mascot with the giant baseball head. His deep, rich voice can both punctuate a great day at the ballpark and make us forget that our team strikes out more than Screech Powers, Steve Urkel, and Carlton Banks combined. Here's to hoping we can lock down Timothy Miller in a long-term deal like we've done with Freeman, Teheran, Kimbrel, and J-Hey. Go Braves!
