    As a Brit, Richard, I'm amazed that you knew that about Frenchy Fuqua. I will now have to start studying up on cricket stats and trivia to keep up with you

    I think, this was his Steelers retirement party where the ever flamboyant Frenchy Fuqua gave a speech about his origins.
    He was a son of a French baroness, They vacationed on an island in French Polynesia. A volcano erupted on a nearby island, the wind blew ashes toward him and that is why he is black.
