Pillorying Kevin Pillar

 

Like Berkeley and most of today’s snowflake college campuses, we just learned that the concept of safe spaces has now been extended to the Major League Baseball playing field. Merriam-Webster defines a safe space as, “a place intended to be free of bias, conflict, criticism, or potentially threatening actions, ideas, or conversations.” In laymen’s terms […]

Kaepernick Behind the Blackball

 

The Super Bowl is now a distant memory, and with training camp on the horizon, quarterback Colin Kaepernick, the aspiring Che Guevara of the NFL, is still unemployed and the leftwing media is crying foul. To refresh your memory, Colin Kaepernick was a once promising player who led his team to the Super Bowl with […]

America’s Racist Ballpark?

 

Is Boston, the mothership of East Coast progressives, a hotbed of racism or is the city getting a bad rap? This debate got going again when Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones made national news. He spoke out about being taunted with racial epithets as well as having a bag of peanuts thrown at him by the […]

Trump and the NFL Draft

 

By any chance, did you catch the annual NFL draft extravaganza on ESPN? The NFL draft has evolved from a handful of men in a cigar-smoke filled room making player selections to an over the top live primetime TV spectacular.

The Double Dime, Wild Cards, Wild Talk

 

A ten-time winner at any tournament is rare; to pull it off at two tournaments in a fortnight is almost certainly — you can look it up — unprecedented.

Ganging Up in America

 

What five letter word do a killing spree in Long Island, the rape of a 14-year-old girl in a public school, and a suicide of an NFL player all have in common? If you guessed G-A-N-G-S you answered correctly. Last week, the life and fast times of Aaron Hernandez was a sports story that grabbed […]

The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo

 

Sunday evening, and it appears the “marcronie” — the non-left non-right political vehicle, formally named En Marche (Haul Ass), to support the presidential candidacy of Emmanuel Macron, won the most votes on Sunday, and the National Front won the second most votes. Under the rules, the two candidates of these tendencies will face off in […]

Last Week’s Overlooked Terrorist Bombing

 

As we have become desensitized to the continual assaults by terrorists on the free world, just “part and parcel of living in a big city” as London’s Mayor marked it down to, you probably glossed over some news from Germany last week that signals a shift in tactics by the terrorists. This new tactic involves […]

The Increasingly Annoying Commissioner

 

Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred has a way to go to become as annoying as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. But he’s working on it. As has been well documented, Goodell and Silver seem to think it’s the mission of their ostensible sports leagues to promote left-wing cultural politics, especially to punish […]
