As home to a waste-to-energy power plant topped by an artificial ski slope, while featuring running trails and a rooftop bar, the CopenHill facility in Denmark was already a particularly versatile space. Some finishing touches have now been added to the building facade that will add yet another activity to its repertoire, with the routes now complete on what is claimed to be the tallest climbing wall in the world.

NASCAR has flipped. They sold out to the Race warrior, cancel culture rage mob.
And in case you don’t know what NASCAR stands for. It’s an acronym.
It stands for: National Association of Southern Crappy-Ass Racists.
And I wonder how many think that it really does?
Anyway – I can’t believe how astonishingly fast this is all happening.
If you’re anything like me, you desperately craving anything that remotely resembles a sporting event.
Since that isn’t going to happen soon enough, I suppose the only thing we to look forward to is the NFL “Hunker Down” Draft.
On a recent broadcast of the Rich Eisen podcast, he was able to reveal several photos of team General Manager’s in-home draft rooms. It ain’t sports, but at least it’s something.
So now we wait for one more day. In the interim, you may enjoy this video representing what the “Hunker Down” Draft may look like and how smoothly it is likely to go.
And it’s going to happen no matter doesn’t like it. So declares NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
from the Blaze:
NFL declares 2020 Draft will go on as scheduled — and Commissioner Goodell makes it clear that he will not tolerate dissent: ‘Grounds for disciplinary action’
Like most Americans, I love to watch the Olympics. What makes it special is that it only comes around every two years – since they began staggering the Summer and Winter games.
But every so often, politics creeps into the games.

We all remember the pink-haired wingnut and social justice warrior, Megan Rapinoe, of the U.S. Women’s Soccer team, who “took a knee” during the playing of our National Anthem at a World Cup game. That was special.
But unlike her contemporary and fellow social justice windbag, Colin Kaepernick, Megan remains employed. This is likely due to the fact that her team is not privately owned, but is run by the U.S. Soccer Federation as a nonprofit, 501(c)(3).
We haven’t had to endure Megan’s nonsense lately. However, with the Olympics right around the corner, I’m sure she’s already busy planning something that will surely be special. And by special, I mean completely asinine.
from the American Spectator:
Football Is Good for Kids, Propaganda Is Not
Keep those Friday Night Lights on, unless you want America’s youth to grow up less healthy and more risk averse.
Americans watch more NFL this season after several years of ratings decline. While couches and seats fill, fields go empty. For the first time in 30 years, high school sports witnessed a participation drop last year, with football’s loss of 31,000 athletes primarily fueling the decline. Youth football more glaringly experiences a participation freefall.

Colin Kaepernick has been duped. He exited college holding a golden ticket, being drafted in 2011 by the San Francisco 49ers as a high second round pick – 36th overall. And he made the most of it. He took his team to one Superbowl and just missed another.
By all accounts, he was good kid and teammate.
Then he met his girlfriend Nessa Diab, a leftist Black Lives Matter type radical, who, in my opinion, poisoned his mind. He went from good player, good person and good teammate to an angry, put upon, radical activist – just like his girlfriend. But I’m sure his transformation was purely coincidental.
By his own actions, he was let go, not to play another down in the NFL. And since then, none of the 32 NFL teams have come-a-calling. Nobody wants him. Not because he doesn’t still have talent. No one wants him because he’s a vocal pain in the butt, and too much of a disruptive distraction for any team – for any locker room.

Honesty About Gun Confiscation
Joy-less Behar of the View lamented that Beto O’Rourke was too honest about his want to take everyone’s guns away. She said, “They should not tell everything they’re going to do. If you are going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected and then take them away. Don’t tell them ahead of time.”
I discuss her and all democrat’s dishonesty.
Coach in Hawaii Won’t Allow Boy to Join Girls Team
A high school volleyball coach in Hawaii doesn’t want a boy who thinks he’s a girl on his team – and oddly enough, the school is so far backing him up.

Woke Socialists insist they know what’s good for us – how much is enough. It takes a village to raise a child. How much money does a person need? You didn’t build that business. And of course they are the arbiters of how much is too much.
Well now socialism has injected itself into high school sports. New York has decided how many points a team can score and by how many points they can beat their opponent, so as to not the hurt the other team’s wittle feewings.
