A couple of years ago, QB Colin Kaepernick got benched because he couldn’t play anymore. As I recall, he was regularly passing the ball to the other team or what we call “interceptions.”
Kaepernick got benched and turned into a political philosopher. He could have worked on his deteriorating skills and try to get his old job back.
Not Colin. He found his “inner Che,” and we know the rest of the story.
The NFL is now all about Colin and the fans are not tuning in.
Now, Nike is referring to his act as some kind of “sacrifice.”
Sorry, but I know real heroes who were killed in Iraq, lost a leg in Afghanistan or served years in a Castro prison. We have a D-Day veteran at our church. Colin’s sacrifice is nothing compared to those examples.
As the old saying goes: Colin, I’ve known heroes and you are no hero.
This weekend, Serena Williams behaved like a spoiled brat and actually got fined for her childish performance at the US Open finals.
The entire post-match celebration was all about Serena and a nice young woman from Japan was treated to a first-class look at how political correctness is tearing up the country.
Colin blamed it on racism. Serena blamed it on sexism. It’s always an “-ism” these days.
Let me get this straight. A guy can’t play, and this is a racist country. A woman makes a fool of herself, and calls it sexism.
And then they wonder how Trump happened? Or why people don’t think ESPN is a sports network anymore?
