Emmy winner Beau Bridges and his daughter Emily Bridges play father and daughter in the episode titled ‘Hail Mary’ of CBS’s Code Black that aired Wednesday night. Pete Delaney (Beau Bridges), a high school football coach, becomes ill en route to a Valentine’s Day charity luncheon honoring a former student, N.Y. Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who plays a better version of his real life self.
“It takes one to know one…” as they say. Which made it especially humorous on Tuesday’s edition of The Herd with Colin Cowherd when Cowherd, who is an avowed lefty, sounded off on the torrent of criticism Cam Newton encountered for his behavior after the Super Bowl.
In a day when the most innocuous thing can quickly become political, a Doritos Super Bowl commercial has upset some people who want abortion to be an unrestricted right.
The politically correct, pearl-clutching, metrosexual hot-take machine went full supernova in the aftermath of Sunday’s Super Bowl game as Peyton Manning, deluged with the inevitable questions about whether or not he was going to retire after winning the game, responded with a to-do list that pretty much any normal, red-blooded American male would endorse.
Sunday may be for the Super Bowl, but Saturday was without question the day for shameless race-baiting and divisive agenda advancing.
There are many awful analogies made in the world of sports. Among them Dan Hampton saying that the Vikings were going to hit New Orleans “like Katrina,” and Nick Saban likening Bama’s loss to Louisiana-Monroe to 9/11 and Pearl Harbor.
ESPN analysts discussed the issue of race in sports on Wednesday (not surprising) and actually highlighted a salient point of truth (I’ll give you a second to pick yourself up off the floor).
So, when FS1’s Jason Whitlock spoke about the media using the racial controversy surrounding Cam Newton for “clicks and ratings,” well he just might have been on to something there.
Because the rest of the world might not yet be completely convinced that the wussification of America has succeeded, USA Today unleashed a torrent of literary lameness by posing the question: Is watching the Super Bowl immoral?
So, I suppose it was only a matter of time before Cam Newton took a flaming torch to the house of goodwill he built up by having one of the greatest postseasons in recent memory. But it appears as though he is in the process of doing precisely that right now.
So, just when you thought ESPN was beyond help, completely irredeemable, and more than happy to overlook any slight or attack on people of faith in order to uphold their completely biased, near company-wide anti-Christian bias...all of a sudden, they surprise you. A little, anyway.
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith envisions a world where there is a woman coaching in some capacity, “at every level in professional sports.”
