GO KIDS GO
Listening to a radio show where a guest was commenting the local university recruiting efforts in “big-time sports.” He was very enthusiastic about the “classes” coming into the colleges for the 2017 season.The show’s hosts were rapturous. The players, being recruited nationally, were between 14 and 18. The segment filled up the phones and texts were “off the hook.” Go USA go
OH, SAY WHAT YOU WANT ABOUT STANDING OR KNEELING
Here’s something interesting “bout” the USA. We’re, about, the only country on the planet, that plays its anthem before sporting events, a practice began spontaneously during WWI to show support. The US military pays many teams, including colleges, for military aircraft, the unfurling of massive flags, etc. So, kneel or don’t kneel. Is there really a need for such militaristic displays before watching people, who are sometimes 15 years of age, play a game? Take a look at HBO’s Inside Sports (September 2016) and see if your patriotic opinion changes.
