Rapinoe, Like all Athletes, Should Just Shut Up and Play

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.

But not if the International Olympic Committee has anything to say about it. read more

The DipStick

Although it may be hard to believe, ice fishermen do enjoy a cold drink or two while they’re sitting outside in the winter. The DipStick was designed for such anglers, as it keeps those beverages chilled – but not frozen – in the lake water under the ice. read more

Our Favorite Sport Suffers as America Wussifies

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. read more

Kunta Kaepernick – the $20 Million Slave

by: Brent Smith

No Audio Version

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.

Just a few days ago the NFL did something extraordinary. Something they’ve never done before. They arranged a private workout for Kaepernick in Atlanta and invited all 32 teams to attend. read more

Audio Article – Beto’s Gun Grab – Hawaii Coach Stands His Ground – Bike Lanes

by: Brent Smith

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.

New York Puts a Cap on Scoring

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.

from the The Blaze:

A New York high school football coach has been suspended because his team beat an undefeated opponent by too many points, violating a sportsmanship rule, according to the New York Post. read more

WND Exclusive – Will NFL be Sanitized Out of Existence?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

If you are a regular reader, you know I am a huge NFL fan and a diehard New England Patriots fan. And to all the haters out there, I was a fan before the start of the dynasty years – although it’s difficult to remember that far back!

I’m not here to gloat – but rather to lament the problem in the NFL – and that is safety, or more precisely, trying to regulate the violence out a violent game.

Now, politically speaking – I’m disappointed, but not surprised. A lot of NFL team owners are left-leaning as are many at the league office and players. They also have a tendency to be spineless and therefore bow to every “we have to do something” mantra. So wanting to regulate human behavior isn’t really that foreign to them. read more

Video Podcast – Enough with NFL Social Justice Already

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

So I found a couple of articles from the Sun Sentinel in Miami Florida about the ongoing ridiculousness of this social justice movement crap and the NFL.

It’s about one head coach, Brian Flores, of the Miami Dolphins who threw in with the social justice crowd by claiming that his own story was one of social justice.

I discuss this being a problem on several levels, but mostly, the coach missed a golden opportunity to tell his real life story of working hard in America, to achieve your goal. read more

Being Black and Christian doesn’t Fit In with National Women’s Soccer Team

When the choice is between one of best female soccer players in America and wearing a gay pride jersey, the National Women’s Soccer team chose the jersey. And did I mention that the player is black? Interestingly, there were no cries of racism from anyone on the woke left.

The absence of one of the best women’s soccer players in the nation from the national squad that just won the World Cup has prompted questions as to whether she didn’t make the team because of her openly professed Christian faith.

Jaelene Hinkle, 26, “has been called the top left defender in the U.S. game,” according to The Washington TimesFox News noted Hinkle “helped her team win the NWSL championship and previously helped it win a title in 2016 when it was known as the Western New York Flash.” read more
