Reggie Cleveland All-Stars

The 1970's was the decade of disco, blacksploitation flics, porno mustaches that would put even Adam Morrison to shame, and an unheralded pitcher named Reggie Cleveland who won 105 games in his not so distinguished Major League career. Thanks to ESPN Sportswriter and uber-fan Bill Simmons (I highly recommend you read his columns: http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/simmons/index ), Reggie Cleveland is the inaugural member of the note-so-but-hopefully-soon-to-be-famed Reggie Cleveland All-Stars. It is, as explained on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reggie_Cleveland_All-Stars ), "a fantasy award team for sports figures whose names do not match their ethnicities, especially white players with African-American sounding names." Included on the team are the likes of Grady Little, Jarrod Washburn, and Mack Brown, Bronson Arroyo, J.J. Redick, and Troy O'Leary. So, check it out. I would even suggest this be expanded to other celebrities, such as movie stars, rock stars, pop singers, and others. Let me know if you can come up with anyone who belongs on the Reggie Cleveland All-Stars.
