BILL MINOR: A novice to take on Bryant

Without trying the 46-year-old round-faced Gray has become an overnight rock star–landing on the front page of the New York Times September 8 and on NBC’s Today Show two days later…

…A Gray-Bryant debate match-up (if it happens) would be a classic. Here you would see Gray, the big rig truck driver in his trucker’s garb, side-by-side with the countrified Bryant in leather boots and Mississippi twang. Actually Gray, who is African-American but you’d hardly know it from his skin color and facial features, has less of a Southern drawl than does Bryant…

…Some entrepreneur is likely already printing tickets for the Gray-Bryant debate. It’s certain to be a sellout.
