I didn't watch Game Six and I'm not going to watch Game Seven. Baseball is so all over for me. Too many irritants. It feels good, like kicking a bad habit.

And for you it didn't even take a Kaepernick!

Nationals pitcher Sean Doolittle has declined to visit the White House Monday for a ceremony honoring his team's historic World Series win, citing President Donald Trump's rhetoric as the reason he won't attend the celebration

Because he doesn't like cheap fast food either.

A San Fran 49ers radio analyst was suspended for saying Baltimore QB Jackson was adept at carrying out fakes because of his "dark skin color with a dark football, with a dark uniform,  you could not see the thing".     (the "thing" being the football).

Funny but I was watching the game on national T.V. (Fox , CBS or NBC),  and the announcers made similar points about how the Ravens use the option and how hard it is too see who has the football and by the time the defense does know who-has-the-ball that player is already a few yards pass the line of scrimmage .    Of course they didn't even "go-there" as it relates to WHY the ball is so hard to see.    

But logically what that radio analyst, Tim Ryan said,  made sense and it wasn't a knock on Jackson or racist,   but it was an off-color comment (pun intended).

PS:  Here is the entire statement.    Note that CNN's headline is that these are "racist comments":  (CNN just doing their part to create more hate in America).

"He's really good at that fake, Lamar Jackson, but when you consider his dark skin color with a dark football with a dark uniform, you could not see that thing. I mean you literally could not see when he was in and out of the mesh point and if you're a half step slow on him in terms of your vision forget about it, he's out of the gate."

While watching the NFL on Sunday,    there was a feature on shoes and how they are being used to promote social causes.     E.g.  shoes designed to promote the March of Dimes, or Breast Cancer awareness,  etc...

This got me wondering;    does the NFL screen which social-causes are '"legit"?         E.g.   I assume the NFL wouldn't "allow" a boycott-Israel shoe.      How about a Police-Life-Matters?  

(but I assume the NFL would to "OK" with a BLM shoe????).

I wonder what criteria the NFL is using for a "legit" cause that is a-political.

Shoes are the least of the NFL's problems. They are producing a crappy product which gets worse every year. When did this "race to the end zone and pose for a team photo" start after an interception? What happened to  "delay of game" or "unsportsmanlike conduct" for this behavior? And why do the networks showcase these actions?  Why do teammates slap each other on the heads and headbutt each other, then  moan about concussions?  I say make they play without helmets. And how come the Cowboys suck?  Who designed those awful uniforms that the Ravens wear? And why is it called football if only a few players actually use their feet to touch the ball?

I miss Ben Davidson, Jack Lambert, and Hacksaw Reynolds.
