Popovich Rips Senators, Says Without Blacks We Have No Democracy
The irascible NBA coach Gregg Popovich went on another of his patented rants Sunday night before the San Antonio Spurs met the Philadelphia 76ers. The highly volatile Popovich accused Republican senators, along with Democrat senators Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin, of exposing the nation to danger with selfishness. He also attacked GOP efforts to secure election integrity and said if it wasn’t…
Gonzaga Banishes Maskless Stockton From Home Games
Would North Carolina University dare ban Michael Jordan from its home basketball games for not wearing a facemask? How about Kansas and Danny Manning? Not a chance. They’re too smart to stoop that low and bite the hands that fed them so well on and off the court. Gonzaga had the bad sense to ban …
Penn’s Thomas Making More Enemies Than Friends
Maybe being the BTOC (Big Transgender On Campus) wasn’t such a hot idea after all for Will "Lia" Thomas. She’s growing more and more unpopular with her teammates. Also, Caitlyn Jenner said biological boys should not be allowed on girls' teams, and, in a controversial move, the NCAA is changing its rules because of Thomas.
Trans Penn Swimmer Compares Self To Jackie Robinson
In a gag-worthy twist, the latest from the PennU trans swimming pool is that Lia Thomas says he is the Jackie Robinson of transgender athletics. Strange, but I don’t recall anything about a “Jacquelyn” Robinson, major league baseball’s first black player with Brooklyn in 1947, later joining the Rockford Peaches women’s baseball team (1943-54) and batting .990!

Connecticut Prep Basketball Coach Suspended For Winning 92-4
What happens when one high school girls’ basketball team comes to compete, and the other team doesn’t? If you are the head coach of the first team, and your squad wins in a wipeout, you are scapegoated and suspended for a game. We’ve seen this sort of ridiculous thing before when a sports team is severely punished for achievement, and it’s never a pretty outcome.
Gender Bias Whining Begins; NBA Passes Up On Female Head Coach
The NBA’s perpetual first head female coach in waiting awaits no more. Becky Hammon, a San Antonio Spurs assistant coach, has given it up and accepted a head coaching job with the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces. Widely assumed to have the right stuff to coach men, her privilege card has expired. She and the media immediately revved up glass ceiling excuses for getting passed over by NBA teams.
Courageous Swimming Official Speaks Out Against UPenn Transgender
Long-time USA Swimming official Cynthia Millen resigned a week ago in protest over the so-called University of Pennsylvania transgender athlete making a mockery of women’s collegiate swimming.

Swim Magazine Demands NCAA Protect Women’s Sports from Men
It’s time to stop the madness. University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas, a man who’s being allowed to compete for the women’s swimming team, has all the advantages of a female using performance drugs according to John Lohn, editor of Swimming World magazine. Lohn would know. He’s seen it first-hand.
NFL Ripped for Supporting Groups Aiming to Defund Police
The National Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) snapped back after news broke last week that the NFL is donating tons of money to radical groups seeking to defund the police. The NFL's Inspire Change social justice initiative is funding three groups in particular, prompting a justifiably sharp retort from Patrick Yoes, president of the fraternal order.
As Sports Battle Shutdowns, Clay Travis Accuses Biden of COVID Lies
Okay, vaccinations and protocols are not working, and professional sports were not supposed to be looking at a COVID-induced long dark winter. The experts and the politicians had all the “scientific answers.” Talk of temporary shutdowns and bubbles were supposed to be things of the past.
Titleist Censors Reject ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ Golf Ball Orders
Move over, Big Tech. Titleist, the company that boasts of making the No. 1 ball in golf, is now part of the corporate censorship movement. Titleist will allow you the opportunity to order customizable golf balls with anti-Trump statements, but don’t even think about using “Let’s Go, Brandon!” This anti-Joe Biden phrase was originally allowed by Titlist, but is now strictly forbidden as a…
