The news has made headlines all over the country and not just in the sports world. Basketball great LeBron James is going home – back to Cleveland, where it all began.
Yes, of course it’s the lead story on all 52 ESPN channels. That’s to be expected, but they’ve been discussing it nonstop on the NFL network, the network dedicated exclusively to football. No not fútbol… football. You know, the real man’s sport. Yeah, that’s a little dig at all you dopey FIFA fans.
Anyway, I even saw a segment about LeBron on the Golf Channel. Really? The Golf Channel?
So, I ask you – what’s bigger, more important, more newsworthy than LeBron? Evidently nothing.
The Twitterverse just exploded over the news. Tweets blasting out – columns hurriedly written in order to be the first to announce this earth shattering news.
No more attention has been paid than to this announcement.
Not the ever deepening V.A. scandal, where it’s been discovered that tens of millions of dollars in “merit” bonuses and overpayments were paid for clearing up the backlog by effectively killing off our heroes in desperate need of treatment. Everyone but the veterans benefited – down to lowly clerks and support staff.
