Author and former NFL player Anthony E. Prior will speak at Pan-African Connection bookstore Saturday at 3 p.m. Prior’s self-published book from 2006, The Slave Side of Sunday, compares the NFL to the American slave trade. Hmmm. Check out this story about Prior’s book from the Nation. His talk Saturday is titled "Who’s going pro vs. who’s going to prison".

We’re getting our Beatrix Kiddo costume ready for Bike Friendly Oak Cliff’s ninjas vs. pirates ride Sunday at 3 p.m. Those guys are so silly, and we love it. The ride starts at Main Street Garden Park downtown. On second thought, we might go as Roberto Clemente.
