Megan Rapinoe is no longer satisfied calling the shots just for women's soccer. She's demanding that male soccer superstars get with the social justice program, too. Cristiano Ronaldo, Leo Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic need to get active to clean up the problems plaguing men's soccer, Rapinoe said.
Awful Announcing's Ben Koo posted a lengthy report on Fox Sports emerging as a major threat to ESPN's long monopoly on college football coverage. Declaring a key part of that rivalry as political, Koo likened ESPN to a "punching bag" and Fox Sports as the alternative of choice for "disgruntled conservatives."
News has just come out that 2019 NCAA baseball champion Vanderbilt University whiffed on an invitation to be honored at the White House during a celebration of multiple college championship teams last week. But in an unusual "pinch-hitting" appearance, the 2018 national champion Oregon State Beavers did a last-minute "hit-and-run" to the nation's capital to celebrate their title with President Donald Trump.
Presidential candidate and socialist U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders is accusing Major League Baseball of something he's all too familiar with — job killing. He wrote a threatening letter to MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred warning him not to eliminate 42 minor league teams, saying it will be a job-killing move.
Normally the coaches of really bad professional sports teams take a beating from the press. Not so when one of those coaches deflects attention by taking shots at a Republican president. Take San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich, an ardent Trump hater. His team is one of the worst in the NBA this season, having lost eight consecutive games ... and he's getting a pass from Yahoo! Sports contributor Ryan Young for turning the focus on President Donald Trump.
Myles Garrett made huge headlines last week when he hit Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, Mason Rudolf, with his own helmet during a fight at the end of the Thursday Night Football game.
In a long and storied baseball career with the New York Yankees, former shortstop Derek Jeter never had much to say about anything. As soon as he retired five years ago, he founded a blog, The Players Tribune, that speaks volumes about social justice, among other topics. He's scoring an error on that strategy, though, because his site is struggling to generate revenue and just took on a new partner to stop the hemorrhaging. In typical Jeter fashion, he glosses over The Players Tribune’s woes while highlighting social justice warriors in Thursday's five-year anniversary post, “The Next Five.”
Prior to Saturday's unprecedented, privileged NFL workout for Colin Kaepernick, sports media made their "final arguments" to the court of public opinion. Max Kellerman of the ESPN First Take program and Jarrett Bell of USA Today shilled for the return of the man who's been in exile and who's broken no rules or laws. First Take's Stephen A. Smith said the NFL doesn't owe Kaepernick anything, but asserted racism was involved in teams' decisions not to employ the former San Francisco quarterback..
On Thursday, Day 3 of the Kaepernick-gets-a-tryout news cycle, the groupthink media parrots had their talking points down pat: the NFL's Saturday workout and interview with the famous anthem foe is a sham and a PR stunt. This point was made loud and clear Wednesday by several Kaepernick apologists on ESPN and again Thursday in the Detroit Free Press where Shawn Windsor echoed talking heads and writers who are putting the NFL on trial for granting Kaepernick an unprecedented opportunity.
As the saying goes, birds of a feather … flip the bird to America together. Like U.S. women’s World Cup champion, feminist activist and angry lesbian Megan Rapinoe dedicating her Glamour “Women of the Year Award” to disgraced, race-baiting former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
ESPN has always been friendly turf for Colin Kaepernick and that was especially true on Wednesday, the day after news came out about the radical former pro quarterback/anthem kneeler getting an NFL tryout this Saturday. The First Take and Around The Horn programs passed around plenty of Kaepernick Kool-Aid.
Tuesday brought confirmation of two important truths: no good deed (or 129 years of them) goes unpunished; and the “woke” left hates people. That’s why a British singer may not be performing at the Dallas Cowboys’ Thanksgiving halftime show. The show is the official kickoff of the Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle campaign, which runs through Christmas Eve -- you know, the cheerful people who stand in the cold outside supermarkets and ring bells and collect donations.
