This week’s edition of, “Let’s freak out over something completely irrelevant and meaningless in the sports world,” brings us into the realm of college football.
The Confederate Battle flag remains very much on the hit list of the left, and some on the right. Now the Stars n’ Bars finds itself in the crosshairs of the coaches at Ole Miss and Mississippi State.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was for defending Planned Parenthood from Ben Carson, before he decided he was against it. Shortly after midnight EST Monday, Cuban sent a shot across the bow of Republican Presidential candidate Ben Carson for his comments attacking Planned Parenthood and one of its founders, eugenics activist and coiner of the term “birth control” Margaret Sanger.
This past Wednesday on Fox News, Carson responded to Democrats’ claim that the Republican effort to defund Planned Parenthood was a part of the “War on Women.”
In a stunning coincidence of epic proportions that no one could have possibly seen coming, ESPN has found another gay professional athlete less than three days after Michael Sam’s announcement that he is walking away from football.
This most recent out-of-the-closet jock comes to us by way of baseball. David Denson, a minor league first baseman in the Brewers organization, recently came out to his teammates, a process he explained in the ESPN article:
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.
Media mogul and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is an unquestioned genius when it comes to finances and marketing. When it comes to politics? Again, Mark Cuban is an unquestioned genius when it comes to finance and marketing.
Writing on his Cyber Dust social-media app, Cuban wrote a piece flagged by Yahoo! where he said that he would rather join the GOP but had an issue with the party's apparent need for conformity.
If USA Today has 99 problems, having too many issues to report that are of crucial interest to readers would clearly not be one of them.
On Tuesday, USA Today Sports ran a piece documenting the odyssey of transgender male athlete Keelin Godsey, an 11-time All American and National Champion in women’s hammerthrow.
Former New England Patriot and SMU running back Craig James is suing Fox Sports for religious discrimination.
The former ESPN, and briefly Fox Sports, employee claims that his firing from Fox was due to comments he made opposing same-sex marriage while running for U.S. Senate. James’ suit was filed in Dallas County Court on Monday.
Wait, we’re not all winners?
Imagine: liberal HBO airing a program that says we should stop treating our special little snowflakes like special little snowflakes! That fluffing Jr.’s short-term self-esteem with those soccer participation trophies may be a long-term mistake. HBO really did it – but Real Sports host and veteran lefty scold Bryant Gumbel couldn’t let the opportunity pass to turn an otherwise constructive segment into a shot at America.
Just like the Christian groups that liberals so revile, the ones that provide therapy for young people to change them from gay to straight, the reality show “I Am Cait” provides conversion therapy designed to turn Bruce Jenner into a Liberal, instead of just accepting him for who he really is. Such was obvious on Sunday night’s episode of Jenner’s new reality series, an episode titled, “The Road Trip: Part 1.”
Given our dire need for subject matter far less ghoulish than what we have been subjected to this week, I present to you with this humorous scene from tonight’s episode, titled Ejecta, of CBS’ “Under the Dome.” Julia (Rachelle Lefevre) and ‘Big Jim’ (Dean Norris) provide us with proof that there are still Hollywood writers willing to take shots at liberals.
Few things in life give liberals more joy than speaking for those who can’t speak for themselves – trees, polar bears, discredited economic doctrines. And sometimes that can even be a good thing.
Fireworks flew early and often on this week's episode "All the Trimmings" on ABC Family’s “Becoming Us,” as Carly’s ex-wife ("Carly" self-identifies as a woman, but is a man who used to be named Charlie) committed that most unforgiveable of sins: reminding Carly that he is a parent with actual, real-life responsibilities. Predictably, this did not end well.
- You look kinda cranky.
- I'm not cranky.
Once again, loon-left publication The Nation reminds us that in this time of exquisite PC sensitivity, we can all still hate on Israel.
I mistakenly tuned in to the premier episode of “I Am Cait” thinking that the show was about a transgender guy. Instead, I saw a show about a 65 year old guy who likes to wear Atelier Versace.
This point crystallized in a scene just over halfway through the show, when Jenner sits down for a heart-to-heart with his mother, Esther. The conversation intended to highlight change. Instead, it did just the opposite:
Apparently, baseball is so simple that even a Dominican can do it! At least that was the sentiment expressed by the now-former ESPN, and possibly never-going-to-be Fox Sports 1 host Colin Cowherd, who on Thursday’s edition of his show “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” broke with one of his longtime patterns and devoted an entire segment to baseball.
If Colin had any idea that this particular baseball monologue would result in his firing, he would have definitely stuck with not talking about baseball. As it is, it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
The Catholic Church found itself sitting squarely in the sights of the hour long leftist infomercial known as ABC Family's “The Fosters.” In last night’s episode, "Faith, Hope, Love," Mariana Foster (Cierra Ramirez) gets an invitation from her birth mother to be a Godmother to her infant half-sister. Get all that?
ABC Family's “Becoming Us” backtracked last night to revisit a theme they laid the foundation for weeks ago: Ben and his emotional despair over his man-turned-woman father "Carly" refusing to allow Ben to call him “dad.” You see, "Carly" is so obsessed with becoming female, that he will not permit any mention or reference to him as a man in any capacity. Even by his own son.
Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner has spoken, and I’m more confused now than ever before. And that’s saying something.
During ESPN’s 2015 ESPY Awards, Bruce Jenner received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. In an introductory speech, video tribute, and acceptance speech that spanned nearly 30 minutes of air-time, the story of “Caitlyn’s” transformation was told.
