Someone other than the Cardinals brought a championship home to Saint Louis. For the first time in their 52 year existence, the Blues won the Stanley Cup, in a series that peaked in last night’s game 7 with a record 9 million viewers late in the 3rd period when the decisive 4th goal was scored. The previous record was 2010’s game 6 when the Blackhawks ended their 49 year drought against the Flyers. Most impressive, 60% of television viewers in Saint Louis were watching the game. Nobody can say their city was uninterested. Original 6 Boston is a reliable draw, but it is a bit surprising the 1971 rematch would break the record. Maybe the NHL’s popularity is on the rise. Blues fans have waited a long time, being the final 1967 expansion team to join hockey immortality. Sorry Seals, you never made it.
During the top of the 7th inning in Tuesday’s NCAA softball championship, the entire Oklahoma team held up the white supremacy symbol after their only black player tied the game with a homerun with 2 outs in the final inning. It is uncertain if the racist mostly white team was mocking their teammate who just tied the game or if this is how they display their white privilege every game . When is the NCAA going to stop endorsing and encouraging dangerous white supremacy that is destroying our diverse country? Events like this only further marginalize black students who are already harrassed, assaulted, and victimized daily by white culture on every college campus across this racist nation. The NCAA must strip Oklahoma of all their victories in the 2019 season, investigate the program, and put them on athletic probation until each racist player in that photo is expelled and the toxic white culture in Norman is eradicated for good.
First strike: Casually hurls racial slurs at the opposing team exposing players and fans of color to hate speech.
Second strike: Brazenly high fives white coach then proudly flashes the white supremacy symbol for everyone to see before he touches home plate.
How long will major league baseball allow this unalloyed racist to scream the n word during games and flash symbols that represent centuries of bloodshed at the hands of white supremacy?
You have 16 days until the crosstown series Ricketts family! If this man is not banned, a protest demonstration and boycott will be launched so the entire world knows of your true feelings toward people of color!
Two tornado warnings in one afternoon, that’s a first.
Nature vs. Nurture, the question at the core of behavioral sciences. Since intelligence is a mix of both, to the best of our understanding, a decline in IQ would have to mean we’re either passing on dumber genes or conditioning ourselves to be less intelligent. The reverse eugenics of human reproduction, both natural and subsidized, comes to mind in the era of the great society. Also, humans have recently outsourced much of their problem solving, memory, and social life to internet media in exchange for attention, time, and motor skills. So what is making us dumber? Are we raising dumber kids, producing dumber kids, or is it smart phones and public school? I usually don’t like to choose the all of the above cop out, but I cannot think of a better scenario in which it applies.
Enter Toe Rogan. Wokecenter is at it again, putting the race baiting and lefty politics aside for a day to promote a psychedelic that makes you see death, convulse, and potentially lose your mind. At a desperate attempt in anything but sports, a new video was created featuring Mike Tyson’s dmt experiences. Psychedelics are making a big comeback with the younger generation thanks to Joe Rogan, Silicon Valley, and Netflix. Being a nonprohibitionist, I care not about what adults do, but I find it suspicious that our mainstream culture jumped over pot and are now accepting psychedelics as a normal. ESPN just three months ago had wall to wall coverage regarding New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s sex life, now they’re making psychedelic cartoons featuring a professional boxer with well documented mental problems and brain damage. CTE is bad though guys remember, rich white men, corporations, profits and such. Why didn’t Mike Tyson get an ESPN feature about his successful pot farm or new podcast? Why does the same network that preaches the subjugation of black pro athletes continue to subjugate black athletes? Why is silicon valley pushing mind opening psychedelics while breathlessly censoring decenting political and philosophical opinions? Why isn’t medical marijuana being heralded by ESPN as a medicine that can save pro athletes suffering from CTE? Obviously none of the ivory tower boomers that make up ESPN management have seen Tyson’s podcast, never mind…stop pushing poison on our children scum! Learn how to manage a sports network in a digital age!
Everybody hates season 8 and myself being a casual viewer that joined in halfway, I’m wondering where everyone has been. The after the fact purists claim it was all downhill after season 4, but after rewatching 5 and 6 recently I think they’re trying to sound smart in a time of sorrow and confusion. I knew the show was in trouble after they ran out of book material but nobody seemed to care at the time. I guess false hopers thought Mr. Martin would blow through a few new volumes before the HBO conclusion. I never saw that to be a probable scenario. My best case scenario would have been a cowritten final two seasons, but from the pictures I’ve seen, George is too busy enjoying them HBO checks to care about concluding his book series. The hiatus and then the shortened, rushed seasons was where it all went wrong in my opinion. Season 7 sucked so bad my hopes were pretty small for season 8 and the race baiting woke BO hasn’t proved me wrong. Why so much time and energy is dedicated to corner cutting convenience is beyond my comprehension. Almost a million people signed a petition supporting a new 8th season, where were all these people 3 years ago or 2 years ago after season 7? Delusional…you can’t end a show based on a book correctly if the book that contains the story has not been written! Common sense. Glad the Phantom Menace taught me never to buy into hype.
