And LeBron James graces us with his WOKENESS!

I am going to reserve a lot of comments on the Georgia shooting of an “unarmed” Black man. Commenting before we know a lot of facts is silly frankly. Of course we know the race pimps will be out stirring the pot, lots of people who pretend they are victims will march, carrying signs with empty platitudes. The word “justice” will be used around 13 billion times, people will get angry before anyone has proof of anything. You know the drill by now. But, I just had to say something about this LeBron James hyperbole

LeBron James has joined the growing chorus demanding justice for Ahmaud Arbery, black man who was killed while out jogging in Georgia almost three months ago.

Arbery was shot dead on February 23 in a neighborhood just outside Brunswick at the age of 25. Video of the shooting, however, only emerged this week and was posted to social media on Tuesday, causing worldwide outrage.

“We’re literally hunted every day [and] every time we step foot outside the comfort of our homes,” James wrote on Twitter on Wednesday night.

Yeah, sure LeBron, sure. Look, I hate to inject facts into your attempt to show how “woke” you are but no one is “hunting” Black Americans. Well besides the thugs in inner cities that the left, and idiots like you refuse to place any blame on. That is what amazes me. None of you Wokers ever blame gangs, or leftist policies of releasing violent felons early, often after they serve little actual time. You never blame the idiot politicians, who, rather than calling for tougher sentencing, oppose such laws as RAAAAACIST! Why is this LeBron?

Why don’t you call out gangs? Why don’t you blame them? Why do you not call for more policing in certain areas where most Black Americans are killed by violent criminals? I suppose you think it better, somehow, to blame the NRA, or Americans who own firearms. You cozy up with leftists, who make the problems worse, maybe you think that is cool. It makes you look like you care. After all Leftism, IS an ideology of narcissism and virtue signalling. It is an ideology that cares about intent, and ignores results. It is an ideology that blames objects rather than the people who wield them and kill innocents.

Why, I must ask once more, do you spread this asinine narrative of police “hunting” Black people? Why ignore the elephant in the room, Black on Black murders LeBron? Ever heard of, or cared the first damn about those? Maybe being  “woke as fuck” is the real goal. Maybe this is all about Look At Me! Tell you what LeBron go get that put on a bumper sticker, put signs in your yard to let us know how much you want us to think you are WOKE AS FUCK! Do all of that while you blame America, the NRA, RAAAAACISM, guns, gun owners, Colonialism, police, and so on. 

Report- NBA legend Kobe Bryant killed in helicopter crash

This is being reported on Fox News, nothing on ESPN yet, which might, hopefully, mean the reports are false. CNN reported that 5 people were killed in a copter crash, but did not mention Kobe Bryant. Checking on TMZ, and they are reporting it is true. Very shocking news

Kobe was 41, RIP

Wow! Expansion Las Vegas Knights reach Stanley Cup Final

Sometimes, there are no words

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Ryan Reaves scored the winning goal, Marc-Andre Fleury made 31 saves and the Vegas Golden Knights pushed their remarkable expansion season into the Stanley Cup Final, beating the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 on Sunday in Game 5 of the Western Conference final.

Alex Tuch also scored for the Knights. They lost Game 1 in Winnipeg before winning four straight to become the first expansion team since the 1968 St. Louis Blues — when the six initial expansion teams were put alone in the West — to get to the final.

WWE Hall of Famer Bruno Samartino passes away

RIP

Bruno Sammartino, one of the most iconic stars in professional wrestling history, has died at age 82, the WWE announced Wednesday morning.

Sammartino was the then-World Wide Wrestling Federation’s longest-reigning world champion, holding the title for nearly eight consecutive years. He began his record title reign after beating Buddy Rogers at Madison Square Garden on May 17, 1963.

He would not relinquish the belt until a loss to Ivan Koloff on Jan. 18, 1971.

After regaining the title in December 1973, Sammartino went on to have a run of more than three years; that’s also one of the five-longest world title reigns in the company’s history.

Those title reigns are indicative of Sammartino’s place as the centerpiece of Vincent J. McMahon’s WWWF, which later became the WWF and then the WWE.

A legend

Biggest upset ever?

Sixteen seed seed UMBC,that is The University of Maryland-Baltimore County, pulled off a sports shocker by knocking off 1 seed Virginia last night. No 16 had ever beaten a top seed, much less blown them out. 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Jairus Lyles couldn’t suppress a smile, knowing that a school known more for chess than hoops had finally made it happen — a 16 ousting a 1 in March Madness.

The University of Maryland-Baltimore County stunned the sports world by pulling off the most shocking upset in college basketball history, hammering Virginia 74-54 on Friday night to become the first No. 16 seed ever to beat a No. 1 seed in the men’s NCAA Tournament.

Virginia entered the NCAA Tournament as the No. 1 overall seed after going 31-2 in the regular season, including 20-1 in ACC competition.

Roger Federer wins record 20th Grand Slam Championship

Best tennis player ever!

Roger Federer beat Marin Cilic on Sunday in the Australian Open final to win his 20thGrand Slam singles title.

The 36-year-old tennis star beat the Croatian player in five-set match 6-2, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 3-6, 6-1. It’s Federer’s sixth Australian Open title. He also won eight Wimbledon titles, five in the U.S. Open and one at the French Open.

Greatest athlete ever? In my view he is on a very, very short list

NFL protests are based on lies

From the time Colin Kaepernick first “took a knee” during the national anthem last season the left have hailed him as heroic, and praised him for raising awareness, and protesting inequality, and police brutality. The media, of course has been eager to carry these narratives because the media loves nothing more than to point out American racism. Narratives are loved by the left. Narratives require no facts, all they need is an emotional story that is repeated, and repeated, even after it has been proven false. The media are their willing and eager partners in spreading the propaganda.

Sure the narrative about police “hunting down” Black men is false. If it held any shred of validity, the body count in America’s inner cities would be massive. The Michael Brown “Hands up Don’t Shoot” narrative? It has been completely discredited by forensic evidence, physical evidence, autopsies, and eye witnesses. The Trayvon Martin narrative, that he was stalked and killed for being Black is as fallacious as when it was spun into existence by the likes of Al Sharpton. Martin viciously attacked a much smaller man, George Zimmerman, and paid the price for that action. Police are not getting away with murdering Black Americans. The fact is most police shootings are justified, and police are tried and convicted  when their actions are not justified.

The most annoying thing about all this is the media could actually report facts, and lay these false narratives to rest. Of course, that is not their objective. Rather than simply doing what they are trained to do, they choose to prop up the narratives. And their dereliction of duty is helping groups like Black Lives Matter gain credibility as a genuine group fighting for equality, when in fact BLM is a radical far-left group dedictaed to Marxist values that are unrecognizable to the vast majority of Americans. These BLM “principles” are not hard to find, just visit their websitejust visit their website

We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, and especially “our” children to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable.

Of course nothing is more destructive to children and neighborhoods than the fdestruction of families. And no group has been harder hit than Blacks. The out of wedlock birthrate is around 75% among Blacks. The resulting abscence of fathers is devastating to the children. This is a major factor in the disproportionate rate of violence crime committed by young Black men. Gangs are a scourge in inner cities. Most of the victims of their violence? Black people. Children need mothers AND fathers. Yet all the media focuses on is the BLM narratives. 

The NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem say they are protetsing inequality, and police brutality, which are certainly worth protesting. But what are the facts about crime, police shootings? These NFL players are accepting the lefts narratives as facts. But are they? The New York Post took a look at some of these narratives

Yet the Black Lives Matter movement is based on a lie. The idea that the United States is experiencing an epidemic of racially driven police shootings is false — and dangerously so.

The facts are these: Last year, the police shot 990 people, the vast majority armed or violently resisting arrest, according to the Washington Post’s database of fatal police shootings. Whites made up 49.9 percent of those victims, blacks 26 percent. That proportion of black victims is lower than what the black violent crime rate would predict.

Blacks constituted 62 percent of all robbery defendants in America’s 75 largest counties in 2009, 57 percent of all murder defendants and 45 percent of all assault defendants, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, even though blacks comprise only 15 percent of the population in those counties.

In New York City, where blacks make up 23 percent of the city’s population, blacks commit three-quarters of all shootings and 70 percent of all robberies, according to victims and witnesses in their reports to the NYPD. Whites, by contrast, commit less than 2 percent of all shootings and 4 percent of all robberies, though they are nearly 34 percent of the city’s population.

In Chicago, 80 percent of all known murder suspects in 2015 were black, as were 80 percent of all known nonfatal shooting suspects, though they’re a little less than a third of the population. Whites made up 0.9 percent of known murder suspects in Chicago in 2015 and 1.4 percent of known nonfatal shooting suspects, though they are about a third of the city’s residents.

Gang shootings occur almost exclusively in minority areas. Police use of force is most likely in confrontations with violent and resisting criminals, and those confrontations happen disproportionately in minority communities.

Yet, these players are not aware of these facts. They watch CNN, or CBS News and hear the narratives go unchallenged. So they believe that BLM is a legitimate group seeking actual justice rather than the radical goals they actually seek. Yes the players ought to do some research for themselves. But they believe the spin and the narratives, and are drawn to act. Odd it is that by “linking arms” to “show unity” the players are helping to cause exactly what the left desires. More division.

We are told that the kneeling during the national anthem is done to maximize conversation. We are told that players would have no way of conveying their message if they did no kneel or link arms during the anthem. This is asinine at best. These players would have no problem creating conversations if they formed a group and raised their concerns off the fileld. Are we to believe the media would not turn out to cover any press conferences such a group would hold? How much swampland wouldyou like me to buy again? 

The truth is this. The people pushing these protests want them done during the anthem because the very last thing they seek is awareness. This is being pushed by the left, and no one does divisive things like leftists. Anyone who can rub two brain cells together knows that showing any disrespect during the anthem is going to piss a lot of people off. that, of course is the point. Leftist rhetoric gains the most ground when division and anger are highest. If the concerns these players had any true legitimacy they would avoid showing any dierespect for our flag, soldiers, or the nation as a whole. Again, division and anger is not an unforeseen byproduct of these protests, rather division and anger are the intended result.

So what is the long term goal here? Well, Americans love sports. they love great athletes. Athletes are heralded here. If the left can get athletes to embrace and spread their narratives, then they have a great avenue to further these narratives don’t they? Sit down to watch the news and you will hear the narratives propped up. Watch the game and get the narratives, wash rinse, repeat. This is just another front in the war on everything American. Our history, values, principles, culture, borders, language, everything, including our sports and athletes are in the cross hairs of the left.

So, what can we do? Well we must fight the narratives, AKA lies with truth. In short, we must never take a knee. We must stand, stand for American values, principles, and history. Our voice is louder than the left’s. Our truths can silence their lies. But, again, only if we stand!

Roger Federer wins Wimbledon for record eighth time

And he did it at 35, without dropping one set during his run to his 19th Grand Slam. Best ever!

Roger Federer is a Wimbledon champion for a men’s record eighth time, defeating Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 in Sunday’s final.

The win moves Federer above both Pete Sampras and William Renshaw, who each have won seven titles at the grass-court major.

The 35-year-old Federer became the oldest champion at the All England Club, and he won his second Grand Slam of the year in impeccable fashion by not dropping a set throughout the two-week run. Federer joins Bjorn Borg (1976) as the only men in the Open era to win Wimbledon without losing a set, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

44 years ago today

The greatest racehorse in history, Secretariat won the Belmont Stakes, and the Triple Crown with such ease it still amazes

 

I must note that in 1973, Secretariat beat another horse, Sham in the Derby and Preakness. In both races Sham and Secretariat blew by the field, showing how special both were. In the Belmont, Sham finished last, but had it not been for Secretariat, Sham likely would have won the Triple Crown that year. Sham was a great horse, but Secretariat was, well Secretariat.

In an odd twist Sham and Secretariat both revealed a secret at their autopsies. An average horse has a heart that weighs 8-10 pounds. Sham’s weighed 19 pounds, Secretariat’s heart was not weighed but was estimated to be 22 pounds. The same man Dr. Thomas Swerczek performed both autopsies

“Certainly, after performing autopsies on several thousand thoroughbred horses, including mares and stallions, no other horse came close to Secretariat’s heart size. The second largest heart I found was the heart of Sham, who actually broke the Kentucky derby record, but still lost to Secretariat. Sham’s heart weighed 19 pounds. The third largest heart I found was stallion Key to the Mint, which was 16 pounds. The majority of all others were smaller, in the range of 10 to 12 pounds. Bold Ruler, the sire of Secretariat had an average size heart. The heart size seemingly is inherited from the female side of the pedigree. When I performed the autopsy on Secretariat, which was necessary because of insurance and we needed to determine the cause of the laminitis, the cause of destruction, I did a cosmetic autopsy. The reason being I did not want to dismantle such a remarkable specimen and the farm personnel and handlers were present to immediately collect all organs in large plastic bags which were immediately returned to the farm to be buried with the body. Normally, with other horses we can keep all organs and the body for further study, or to preserve large specimens, like the heart, but I was not allowed to do this with Secretariat. For this reason, all specimens were immediately collected and returned to the farm, and I did not get a chance to weigh the heart. However, by comparing it to numerous other hearts I got actual weights on, I am certain the weight was between 21 to 22 pounds. So I considered the heart weight officially as 21 pounds. The heart was in perfect shape, not diseased in any way, but just considerably larger than any other horses I autopsied.”

If only Sham has been a year older or younger, but he was destined to be a super horse who faced THE racehorse, Secretariat

When an old gunfighter hangs up his pistols………..

Two Sundays ago, I watched as a legend, an icon, laid down his guns and left the business that had made him a legend. In Orlando, Florida, at Wrestlemania 33, the Undertaker wrestled what is likely for the very last time. In his finale, he lost, to a much younger opponent, and after the match he stood, all 6’10” of him and stared back at an adoring crowd. As his music played he began to exit, then paused, returned to the center of the ring, and began to remove his gloves, them his trademark coat, and finally, his hat. He laid them in the center of the ring he had dominated since 1990, and left the ring. Some fans shed tears, some just stood in reverence. They knew they were watching a legend for the last time.

Taker 4

Now, you might be asking why I am writing about Mark Calaway A.K.A. The Undertaker. I mean wrestling is fake right? Yes, it is. It is athletic, and it is entertainment. But, the work these athletes put in is real, and so is the injuries that acompany it. Movies? TV? Not real, yet we can be fans of actors. So, why not wrestlers.

Taker

The Undertaker was like a character in a movie who kicks the bad guys asses. When his music hit you knew that someone was going to get their ass kicked. And  I thank him for the many memories. Here are some highlights

Why do I write about this man? Because he was the best at what he did, period. I met him once, at the airport. He was a huge man but very nice, humble it seemed to me. Not many people make me feel small, but he did. I admire him because anyone who garners such respect from his peers…. well

The Western Michigan Broncos Deserve To Be In The NCAA Playoffs

So here’s the thing, I don’t like the way college football teams are selected for inclusion in the NCAA “playoffs”.

You probably noticed that I put the word playoffs in quotes there. That’s because I consider picking only four Division I-A teams out of a pool of 128 to be an insult to the very idea of a playoff system. In my opinion, there ought to be 12 teams in the mix at a bare minimum, but that’s a rant for another day.

And so, putting aside my utter contempt for the current playoff scheme, let’s suppose that it actually does have some merit, and that the participants thereof are representative of the best the NCAA has to offer. With that assumption in mind, can someone please explain to me in clear and rational terms why one of the ONLY-TWO undefeated teams in the division has been excluded from the playoffs?

I mean, if being PERFECT isn’t good enough to get you a seat at the table, how exactly are teams like the WESTERN MICHIGAN BRONCOS (13-0) incentivized to achieve such a record in the future?

What, they get to play in some pointless, participation-trophy bowl game like dozens of other teams that DIDN’T distinguish themselves at all?

*Best Church Lady voice* Well isn’t that special?

I guess it’s okay to treat Western Michigan like Fredo Corleone because the NCAA chose not to challenge that team with the caliber of opponents that the Alabama Crimson Tide faced this season, correct? It’s just one big ‘FUCK YOU’ from the start, and if you don’t like it, then all you Broncos fans can go pound sand, right?

Tell me, National Collegiate Athletic Association, what did you require of WMU at the beginning of this season which might have possibly allowed them to become a playoff team? Did they need to win every game by 25 points (on average) instead of only 24? Please proclaim your MAGIC NUMBER so I can slink off to my quiet corner of the world, safe in the knowledge that I’ve finally been set straight by the gods of college sports.
