So just when I was good and ready to declare Eagles fans the all-time worst fans in the history of history a new and far more contemptible force of fandamonium has reared its ugly head.
So, this happened. During an international soccer match between Turkey and Greece (I won’t use the term friendly, for reasons you’re about to see and hear. In addition to the fact that Turkey and Greece hate each other) a moment of silence was called for, to remember the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris.Only one problem. There was very, very little silence as Turkish fans started booing.
The Packers had a really bad day today. Very few things went right as they lost to the Lions at home for the first time since 1991. As it turns out, even the pre-game moment of silence in tribute to the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks went awry.
So, pretty much the most ironic and poetically just thing, ever, happened today in the Cowboys locker room. Or, maybe it didn’t. I must insert the disclaimer, since so many n-word accusations turn out to be so much bunk. But if what I’m about to tell you truly went down as Dez Bryant says it did, this is beyond rich.
In an ESPN article written by Senior Writer Elizabeth Merrill, she lauds the bravery of Jonathan Butler, the head of the Concerned Students 1950 organization at Missouri, and the student who went on a hunger strike to get former University System President Tim Wolfe ousted.
Some, who aren’t familiar with the social commentary of controversial ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith, who happens to be black, might assume that his opinion on the crazy goings-on at Mizzou might be entirely one-sided and completely in favor of the student and student-athlete radicals.
Michael Sam has a lot to learn about being a radical liberal activist. After University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe resigned on Monday, Sam, the former Mizzou stand-out and first openly gay player in the NFL, told MSNBC that, “he did not experience any racial issues” while he was a student athlete at Mizzou.
Like a tree falling in the woods, a Missouri football player not in the team twitter pic expressing solidarity with campus radicals apparently makes no sound. Why is this? Well, because apparently those dissenting football players need not be mentioned.
Because University Presidents apparently now have the power to outlaw racism, campus activists, aka football players, threatened and succeeded in bringing about the resignation of University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe. Though, Wolfe did not acknowledge his “white privilege” in accordance with Demand #1, put forth by the radicals (small win?), his ouster was brought about with unbelievable swiftness by the radicalizing of the football team.
No takedown of a fake HERO would be possible without real heroes. One of those real heroes in Houston, who fought against the certifiable insanity that lesbian Mayor Annise Parker tried to perpetrate on citizens she’s charged with protecting, was former Rice University and former Houston Astro star Lance Berkman who was considered by many --rightly or wrongly-- to be the “face” of the anti-HERO effort.
Filed under the heading of, “You Just Can’t Make This Stuff Up,” I give you Terry Rambler, who is the Chairman of the San Carlos Apache Tribe in Arizona. Rambler was in DC recently to represent his tribe at Tribal Nations Conference. He is also a signatory to a pledge calling for the Washington Redskins to change their name, because racism.
On Sunday night, NPR’s weekend All Things Considered anchor Michel Martin had a long eight-minute interview with pro-basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who’s recently best known for popping off with radical leftist opinions for Time magazine’s website.
Martin went looking for the legend to trash another legend, Michael Jordan, for failing to get behind the black Democrat challenging conservative Sen. Jesse Helms in 1990, who Martin announced had “very retrograde” attitudes on race:
