#17: Black Lightning

September 29, 201627 min
Earlier this month, it was reported that the man who has produced “The Flash,” “Arrow,” “Supergirl,” and “Legends of Tomorrow,” would be bringing to television “Black Lightning,” the 1977 DC Comics, electromagnetic superhero with the power to ride lightning bolts. If the producers are looking for someone to play the titular hero we suggest they look no further than Rams defensive end Robert Quinn—the energetic speed rusher who has been calling himself “Black Lightning” since 2014. Joshua Neuman and Tunisha Singleton discuss how Quinn zapped the Buccaneers on Sunday, powering the Rams to a 37-32 win in a game that was delayed for 70 minutes due to (you guessed it) lightning. Plus, we celebrate the first game that offensive coordinator Rob Boras didn’t “bore us,” ponder the curious case of LaMarcus Joyner, and preview next week’s battle against the Arizona Cardinals.
