5006: Historic Calls and Hang-Ups.
Making the calls with a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• The Super Bowl will mark another milestone as Mike Carey becomes the first Black head official in history. Carey has worked as an official for 18 years and has been a Super Bowl alternate, but was never named the referee. Refs are often accused of being blind. Looks like NFL officials are moving toward being colorblind too.
• Sprint officially announced plans to cut 4,000 workers and shut down 125 retail stores in response to customer defections. The cell phone company lost 683,000 customers in 4Q 2007. Wow, people were dropping Sprint at the speed of light.
