Wiki-Worthy: Darren Arbet

14 03 2007

In this semi-regular series, we shall examine someone affiliated with the Arena Football League who meets Wikipedia’s strict standards for inclusion, and then attempt to either elaborate on the entry or make a joke about their alma mater or arrest record. Today, San Jose SaberCats Head Coach Darren Arbet.

Darren ArbetDarren Arbet: Leader, Fighter, Lover. None of those descriptions grace his painfully sparse Wikipedia page, which includes the following tidbits, only one of which is interesting:

  • 1. He is the head coach of the San Jose SaberCats.
  • 2. He attended Edison High School in Stockton, CA.
  • 3. While in high school, he played football and track & field.
  • 4. His nephew Kevin Arbet is an NFL dropout.
  • 5. In 2002, he became the first African-American head coach to win a professional football championship when the SaberCats won Arena Bowl XVI.

Woah, hang on a minute. The first? Then what the hell was everyone so excited about in Super Bowl XLI? Oh, right – it’s the Super Bowl. However, it must be gratifying to know that you were the first head coach to win a “professional” (like that loop hole?) football championship, break the color barrier, and forever be a footnote on someone else’s Wikipedia page.

When his life story is made into a movie (for TV?), we project that he’ll be played by none other than 24‘s Wayne Palmer.

It would be great to see a movie with starring Darren Arbet. It would be like a Brian Song movie. You start out not knowing what is going to be the ending results and find yourself on time. That would be great.

I apologized for my post but found out that I was sold to Kevin arbet by Jerry Brown of Stockton. California. His alias name governor. Not the political guy but just a person name this. I was sold for $500.00 not knowing. I am not a prostitute. I deserve an apology. Me and my sons ha r suffered tremendously. I am getting harrased in the public eye when me and my kids have been battered and told that I was going to get it. As of now I am getting harassed daily. I am really sadden, hurt and discusted. These families are hurting me every chance they get. This is not a game. I thought I was meeting a cool dude and this has turned into a nightmare with the death of my dad. Please just an apology. The joke is over.
