Here's some more footage of Race Day, or should we call it "Chariots of Stupid!" Nephew Tommy Kier Spates Carla Ferrell Shirley Strawberry Monica T. Barnes Steve Harvey FM #SHMS #sicklecell
I thinks Nephew Tommy wanted Jr to win. Tommy is a runner. I'm glad the money goes towards C. Cell. Good charity.
Tommy had him and would've won if not for the hamstring 😖 I've been there racing against a younger kid , that had nothing to do with it, it was the hamstring! 😂
Congratulations lil brother Kier Spates I listened to you guys discuss the race this morning loved Steve's recap and to see the video loved it. You did that congrats again hey lil brother Ole Eddie B Cooke saw you in the video too 😉. Love you guys
That’s crazy. I skipped ahead through all the talking and thought it was Steve Harvey racing!! 😂😂😂😂. Made it a whole lot funnier thinking he pulled a hammy! Alexandria Livingston Hayley Livingston
Look I know the real Thomas Miles, Nephew Tommy is what they call him, how you doing brother this Kevin Franklin from Eisenhower High School. I don't know if you remember me but my little sister used to run track with you, in fact her name was Stephanie Franklin and she had a friend that ran track with y'all to by the name of Tiffany Taylor. See people don't know that you used to walk around the school with short suit song flooding suits and a briefcase in your hand with a flat top box top. See people don't know that you used to run track High hurdles if I can recall, see I know the real Thomas Miles. So I know that that little 20-yard Dash I'll just ran that boy couldn't mess with you bro cuz it's in your genes. And all these years that I've been knowing you I've never knew that Steve Harvey was really your uncle, and I've never thought that you would become a comedian in life I've always thought you would become a track runner because they don't know how fast you really can run, and at the age you are now we just touching 50 look like your take off it's still good but I don't know how to finish it is😃😃 Last time I seen you bro it was in Houston Texas at just joking Comedy Club and you was talking about old folks shiting on themselves😃😃😃 hey you a prime example man that we all can succeed in life if we just put our minds to it stay blessed brother and if it ain't too much hit me up. I tell people all the time that I know you personally but they don't believe me and that's cool cuz you and I know. I don't know if you remember my dad mr. Franklin cuz he was coaching my sister and Tiffany back then too so I'm just trying to call out a few names to see if it's yours your memory. If you decide to text me back I really don't have pictures or anything posted on my Facebook page because I really don't come on it much but you can reach me at Kevin Franklin and I got the school that we went to on their Eisenhower High School and that would be me. Peace brother.
Junior you did that!! Your the man. Maybe the Butterfly should have raced you since Nephew Tommy wasn't no competion!! Lol Maybe next time Nephew Tommy. Love the show listen every morning😀😀
I listened to yall talking bout this on the morning show this morning. Absolutely love the steve harvey morning show. #shms
Don’t put them next to me Steve at 58 I will punish them both,hey when it’s time to you run,run,run.. I talk smack,when I finish with them people will be loving me,HaHa
I know Nephew Tommy could have won but it's a blessing for him to do that. Always give back we are blessed everyday good job Junior.
Steve I love you and your crews. Listen to your morning show everyday on my way to work, and I dvr your TV show. Thumbs up Steve.
Any can beat Tommy. He might win against a 2 year old. None of mine he my lose too 2 year old. While let try a 99 year old female. I think he might lose to her too.
Did she say at end that there were to many false starts? LOL 😂!!!! I guess that could've had something to do with Nephew Tommy, taking that "L" home with 'em... Lol!!!
Tommy had Jr beat...he LET Jr win.. Jr DID NOT WIN....
Congrats on the win Champ!!! I listen to the Steve Harvey Morning Show every am. Love it!! Stay blessed everyone and prayers
Champ Huh cuz? Lol Well make sure you give glory to the one that made it possible. 🥇And here is your medal 😁
Turtle slow lol! Lil guy arms was moving fast thats it Tommy is faster he should have stretched longer lol!
tommy aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhahahhahahhahahahahahahahah GOOD FO YO ASS JR U DID THE DAMN THANG youtube-ROYAL UNDERGROUND tv i need to put this on my channel tommy always messing wit somebody good fo you LLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSEEEEEERRRR
Heard it this smorning on the morning show..but Nephew Tommys mom had me rolling I love Ms Kate..
I listen to the morning show every morning Monday through Friday from 6:00_8:30 on 102.7 in Benton harbor mi and I wondered who junior was I heard Tommy tell junior he was going to run all the sickle cell out his ass But instead junior ran all of Tommy personalities out of him I guess they are going to drink Gatorade and lick there wounds and tell Shirley and Carla it's ok cell's stick together I love you all have a great holiday.
They look like two fat men racing to get a piece of chicken
Still laughing at Ms. Kate. Please add her to the crew.
I knew junior was gonna win cause Tommy legs too short
Steve Harvey didn’t have nothing to say when his nephew lost. Wow
Tommy had the race won but caught that cramp
Sickle Cell for the Win EVERY TIME!!! #FellowSCWarrior #SickleStrong 💪🏽💪🏽🙌🏽
