MISSISSIPPI IS NUMBER ONE!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
And in something other than poverty, obesity and teen pregnancy rate! (Though we're still really good at being poor, fat and knocked up, too).

But the most recent distinction is from something called "USA Football," an NFL creation chaired by Congressman/ex-quarterback Jack Kemp described as "a non-profit organization whose aim is to promote the growth of youth and amateur football," which dubs the Magnolia State "the nation's top football state." A few native star players - Deuce McAllister and Archie Manning, L.C. Greenwood and Hugh Green, namely, a contingent that barely scratches the surface of a tradition that also includes Jerry Rice, Walter Payton, Brett Favre, Ray Guy, Bulldog Turner, Lem Barney, Deacon Jones and Lance Alworth, for starters - will join in presenting "The Governor's Cup" to Haley Barbour to commemorate the honor.

The criteria, according to the organization itself:

The award salutes Mississippi as the nation’s top football state following a study conducted by The Wharton Spots Business Initiative at the University of Pennsylvania. The project encapsulated a variety of per capita criteria including, the percentages of collegiate and professional football fans, number of NFL players who hail from the state, percentage of high school football players in the state and percentage of high school players who have letters-of-intent to play for NCAA Division I-A colleges and universities.


The rest of the top 10 states based on the USA Football formula: Georgia, Louisiana, Ohio, Alabama, Texas, Virginia, South Carolina, Kansas and Florida.

Fisher DeBerry would crassly and inappropriately note that Mississippi is the state with the highest per capita population of "Afro-Americans," and that five of the other "top ten football states" - Louisiana, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Virginia - are 2, 3, 4, 6 and 9 in per capita black population. But we know that - although the evident and shameful poverty, education and health care rates in these states are frequently and correctly tied with their even more shameful history of discrimination - any suggestion that race is an indicator of athletic success in our society, even from a cultural perspective, cannot be tolerated.

Zwei große Ed Hardy Namen stehen hinter Ed Hardy Zum einen ist es Don Ed Hardy selbst und zum anderen dreht es sich um Christian Audigier. Bei Don Ed Hardy handelt es sich um den „Godfather of modern Tattoo“. Seine einzigartigen, fast lebenden Tattoos sind sein Ed Hardy Markenzeichen.

Das ungeheure Potential dieser außergewöhnlichen Tattoos entdeckte auch Designer Christian Audigier. Als aufmerksamer Beobachter des Ed Hardy alltäglichen Lebens stellte er fest, Ed Hardy dass viele der Jugendlichen auf den Straßen von Los Angeles tätowiert sind und dies einen gewissen Kult darstellt. Dadurch ließ er sich inspirieren und entwickelte Ed Hardy die Idee, ein Modelabel zu schaffen, das sich genau mit diesem Kult beschäftigt. Der erste Schritt in die Richtung des Kultlabels Ed Hardy war getan. Da Christian Audigier von der Tattookunst aber wenigEd Hardy verstand, beschloss er, sich an den größten Tätowierer überhaupt zu wenden. Don Ed Hardy besaß alles, was Christian Audigier sich für seine Ed Hardy zukünftige Arbeit vorstellte. Schnell wurden die beiden Künstler sich einig. Ed Hardy Christian Audigier kaufte dem großen Meister seine Rechte an den Ed Hardy Motiven und Schriftzügen ab. So wurde das Trendlabel Ed Hardy geboren. Während Don Ed Hardy sich in Honolulu zur Ruhe setzte, Ed Hardy begann Christian Audigier Ed Hardy jetzt erst richtig mit seiner Arbeit. Ganz in dem Bewusstsein etwas Außergewöhnliches zu schaffen, arbeitete er unaufhörlich daran, Ed Hardy das neue Label Ed Hardy zum Erfolg zu führen.
