    At the first sighting of kneeling, I will probably turn off the TV and turn horse racing or Music Choice back on. I really like the USA uniforms, designed by Ralph Lauren. I’ve been dressing like that for > 50 years. Seems the Twitter fucks don’t like them. Too preppy, too privileged white, too establishment. If they don’t like them, they can go stick a penny loafer up their ass!

    It’s becom3 a little too “commercial” for me.

    Why do our best players refuse to even be on our Olympic Basketball team? Do they hate the USA that much? Next game vs Iran. Hmmmm, whom should I root for?

    Can Pop get these guys to play like a team? He doesn’t have Tim Duncan or David Robinson to carry him. Maybe Gregg is falling back on his reputation. Coach K he is not.

    I can think of lots of reasons but the top 2 are politics and why risk a career ending injury for nothing..............................

    If I was a pro athlete I wouldn't be doing any stupid shit that may destroy my money making ability.

    What are the “politics “ that prevent their participation?

    They won’t even stand for the National Anthem? They have little to gain, so what the hell? Also, they are afraid of shots, so with rising Covid cases , might not be a good idea to be in proximity of people from all over the world, (and China). The NBA’s bench warmers, should be able to win easily, and if they don’t, no big deal. I thought it was a lot more satisfying, whenever the college kids were able to take home the gold. :cool:

    Duck pretty much hit the nail on the head. You're going to see a rather rapid decline in pro sports because of the kneelers and other flavor of the month causes.

    If I happened to be on a team with a kneeler, I'd have to move on or end up in prison after they had their unfortunate "accident"

    Yep. Great idea.

    Go back to strictly amateurs. Fuck those prima donna pros. No kneelers need apply. Go as an American not as an individual. Those are the rules, accept or reject on those bases.

    Get a college coach too.

    Just got a call from Setting. He says HI. First week of therapy for deprogramming was going great until Nurse Scratchit turned on CNN. So it’s back to orientation for him.

    Thanks to “Anonymous” for the fruit basket. Special thanks to Von Duck for the Playboy magazines.

    I would like to wish him luck, and hope his “contusions” heal well. The playboys were to help wean him off “Hustler”. I think 777 is holding his Hustler collection for him, out in his tool shed. :)

    Thread connection? Serial Mom high school scenes were filmed at Towson High School, where Michael Phelps attended.

    I haven’t watched a minute of it. We live in a free country Dave. Have the conviction, to see that some (*******) will use that freedom to annoy you. Who gives a shit. What a bunch of (*******) think.

    Sorry to see Simone drop out. American society puts so much pressure on these young people to win, win, win. Sadly, it seems that she succumbed to the pressure.

    She seems like a great kid and a great role model but she’s no GOAT.

    But being that she’s black, the Woke media will spin it about race. That’s for sure.

    Always liked her but why is she dropping out now? Could it be she did terrible and had no chance ? You only compete when everything is going rosey? Get off the floor and complete what you started instead of whipping out through the back door.

    Have not seen this man till now. Probably cause he is a sports guy but he is right on. Wish I had time to watch these blogs.

    My op on the Olympics. America has won too many metals in the past and it shows American Greatness which is a bad thing to these woke teams. Wait for the end results in Gold metals.

    Performing under pressure is a prerequisite for greatness, right? Should we give her a participation medal?

    We’ve all been in situations where we had to “step up.” Our careers were on the line, not some games.

    Stressing out and quitting was never an option.

    Jason Whitlock is awesome. It takes balls to criticize a black female these days, regardless of circumstances. We are living in the “Decade of the double standard.”
