Open mouth, insert bloody sock.

Curt Schilling never held back on the mound, and apparently will not do so at the keyboard either. Though, this time Schilling’s daring will hurt his career instead of helping it.

Nice guys may not always finish first. However, after being away from the game for two years and fighting it out with 89 other players at the peak of their profession to try and crack a 53 man roster, sometimes all that matters is being the nice guy that finishes.

According to head coach Chip Kelly, finishing the offseason as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles is a goal very much within reach for football’s greatest nice guy, Tim Tebow.

If there were a parenting award, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ James Harrison would win it. On the other hand, if the Self-Esteem Industrial Complex had a Most Wanted List, Harrison would be on that too.

The Super Bowl champion linebacker took to Instagram over the weekend, and unlike the sort of lewd depravity and self-congratulation that normally attends the Instagram messages of the NFL’s elite, Harrison had an actual message for his audience, and it should be sung from the mountaintops.

For the second time in just over two months since Michael Sam joined the CFL Montreal Alouettes, he is leaving the team. This time it sounds like it’s for good.

Sam, a defensive end from Missouri, came out as gay before the 2014 NFL draft, to the triumphal declarations from ESPN and the media at large. When the confetti settled, the “Gay Jackie Robinson” was drafted in the seventh round by the St. Louis Rams. Cut by the Rams without ever playing a down, he joined the Dallas Cowboys practice squad for a cup of coffee.

Both ABC's World News Tonight and NBC's Nightly News on Thursday evening devoted full stories to Caitlyn (formerly Bruce) Jenner's acceptance speech at last night ESPY Awards. Although Jenner's receiving the award was controversial even among liberal supporters of transgender rights -- critics charged there were far more deserving potential recipients  -- neither ABC's Elizabeth Vargas nor NBC's Hallie Jackson explored that angle.

What does MSNBC's Alex Wagner have against stately Indian warriors? On today's Morning Joe, Wagner said it was "amazing" that anyone could look at the Washington Redskins logo and name and not find them controversial.

This NewsBuster can understand the debate over the "Redskins" name. But the logo? Has Alex actually had a look at it?  Could Wagner be confusing it with the Cleveland Indians'  Chief Yahoo?  Seriously, what could be more stately, grave and dignified than the Redskins logo?

A Chicago Sports radio host believes there’s a strong chance Russell Wilson is gay. Wilson, somehow started a major media kerfuffle on Sunday when he announced that he wasn’t having sex with his pop singer girlfriend Ciara. Wilson explained the couple’s decision by saying that God told him to “guide” Ciara.

This greatly offends people in the sports media, for whom sex is rare and the thought of willfully abstaining from it outrageous.

ESPN is the latest on the dump Trump bandwagon. The network is pulling its July 14 ESPY Celebrity Golf Classic from Trump National Golf Club over Donald Trump’s comments about Mexican illegal immigrants last month.

The only surprise here is that it took ESPN so long to join NBCUniversal, Univision and Macy’s in punishing the billionaire GOP hopeful. ESPN, after all, is an exquisitely liberal outfit and has been for a long time – like MSNBC with cool video clips and catchphrases. True to form, its statement about moving the golf tournament included fluffy boilerplate about “diversity” and “inclusion of all sports fans. Except, of course, those who don’t want their favorite games served with a heaping side of lefty social commentary.

To watch ESPN is to be reminded that liberal groupthink isn’t just a problem in “hard news” organizations. Here are 10 reasons why.

Lee Greenwood sang his iconic “God Bless the USA” between periods of the NHL’s 2015 “Winter Classic” outdoor game in Washington, DC on New Year’s Day, but the real treat came off-stage in a concourse at Nationals Park. Fortunately, it was recorded on a smart phone, so you can enjoy it this Independence Day. Intern Gabrielle Dube posted it with this description: “After Lee Greenwood’s performance during the intermission, he met with the Military Choir to take pictures and it sparked an impromptu a cappella version of ‘God Bless the USA.’ Amazing!”

Remember that time the Obama administration took a courageous stand against the face of evil and racism in our time? Me neither. No, instead the Obama Administration has contented itself with throwing down the gauntlet in the face of an NFL team.

If the Redskins want to move back to the District of Columbia, they need to cave and change their allegedly racist name.
