Marshall Taylor (1878 - 1932) was an American cyclist who won the world 1 mile track cycling championship in 1899 after setting numerous world records and overcoming racial discrimination. Taylor was the first African-American athlete to achieve the level of world champion.
Marshall Taylor was just a teenager when he turned professional and began winning races on the world stage, and President Theodore Roosevelt became one of his greatest admirers. Nicknamed 'the Black Cyclone,' he would burst to fame as the world champion of his sport.

Earlier this week, NFL commissioner and burgeoning Bond villain Roger Goodell ruled on the appeals of the New Orleans Saints players involved in the bounty scandal. To the surprise of literally every person in the world and many of the animals, he upheld his own ruling on their punishments.
