Earlier this week, we brought you the story of Russell Wilson’s wedding planner, and her statement that the Wilsons scrapped North Carolina as a potential wedding destination, due to the state’s HB2 law regarding transgender bathrooms. Enclosed in that story was my fervent hope that the wedding planner got it all wrong, and that the proudly Christian Wilson had decided to forego the Tarheel State for some other reason. Well…that didn’t happen.
How can over 90% of Native Americans be wrong? Well, according to USA Today, it’s when they say that the word Redskin is not a slur. Badly needing a comeback to the Washington Post poll in May, where American Indians resoundingly rejected the idea of the term ‘Redskin’ as a slur, USA Today decided to seek out an expert to tell American Indians just how silly and wrong they are
Much like Santiago, struggling to bring his heavily-damaged prize into shore, before being torn to shreds by predators watching to see how large and vulnerable his doomed catch has become, the liberal sports media is working overtime to cement the notion of Ryan Lochte as “Great White Villain,” before the Brazilian Police’s version of his gas station exploits starts reading more and more like a massive lie.
Pro Football Talk gleefully reported on Monday, that Russell Wilson and his fiancée Ciara decided to ditch the idea of having their wedding in North Carolina. Why is that cause for glee?
It’s been a rough week for Louisiana, with a horrific flood that left thousands homeless. An event so moving it prompted the lefties in the mainstream media to make virtually no appeals to President Obama --for days-- to visit the disaster area. Unlike in 2005 where, according to the media, President Bush was doing his level best to intentionally drown the 9th ward.
More than 20 Team USA athletes have clearly articulated their faith in God through interviews, social media and blog posts. By giving God the glory in their successes, and gracefully yielding to His will in their disappointments, these stars are an inspiration to all of us.
Bill Simmons never promised to confine his HBO Show, Any Given Wednesday, to sports and sports alone. He also never promised to discuss politics with both conservative and liberal views represented. Like many shows, it's all liberals.
According to the Daily Mail, the left and the Obama Administration may have taken their war on the Redskins a tad too far.
Olympic judo competitor Islam El Shehaby of Egypt refused to shake hands with Or Sasson, the Israeli opponent who defeated him, after their August 12 match. Media coverage, though not widespread, was condemnatory of the Egyptian’s unsportsmanlike snub and religious hostility. Except for a post by the semi-anonymous blogger “N.P.” at the U.K.-based magazine The Economist, a magazine with an anti-Israel ideological line, which argued that “Israel’s holier-than-thou protestations, though, risk sounding shrill," and that it could have been a lot worse, referring to “the bullets that killed 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1972.” Only “bullets” killed the Israeli athletes?
ESPN’s Around the Horn has gone from one of the best, longest running panel shows the network has ever had, to an absolutely farcical flagship of left-wing lunacy.
In the immortal words of Sergeant Hulka from Stripes, “Lighten up, Francis.” According to CNN.com, there are people who think a tweet from Ellen DeGeneres is racist. “Some on Twitter found the image less than golden,” according to the story, “with cries of racism and insensitivity in joking about a white woman riding the back of a black man.”
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton landed the cover of the most recent issue of GQ, and what he says in the article has put him in the crosshairs of the leftist sports media.Speaking on the subject of race, Newton rejected the notion that criticism of him is fueled by the racism of fans. Saying, “it’s not about race,” and that “we’re beyond that as a nation.”
ESPN did not take this well.
