This shouldn’t surprise anyone. Remember when the NFL started all this crap with Colin K. and his kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem? The ratings for NFL games and “NFL Ticket” dropped like crazy as a result. We documented that, and how many stadiums looked empty after the NFL allowed that crap to continue. Now, in the Wuhan virus era when we can’t even physically go to games (and therefore that revenue for professional sports is not there), the NFL and MLB are seeing a similar effect…but it’s even worse because they’re playing in empty stadiums. So, we see these whiny, self-serving, self-righteous, spoiled-brat, entitlement-minded, millionaire athletes doing this kneeling crap and wearing social justice clothing…and Americans are over it. They’ve had it. So, they’re just changing the channel. What these obnoxious athletes and their coaches aren’t getting…..is that we just want to watch our sports without politics being rubbed in our faces. If they want to protest, or speak their minds about BLM, or how oppressed they feel living in America and all…then they need to do that on THEIR time; NOT ours. Sports used to be that one time where we could all go (regardless of political party affiliation or beliefs) and take a break from politics and just have a beer, a hotdog, and watch a ballgame and have a good time. Not anymore. These professional sports organizations, pandering to the liberal mobs out there, feel they have to rub their politically correct social justice politics in our faces whether we want to hear it or not. And THAT is why more and more Americans are saying to heck with that, and changing the channel.
YEAH!!! If you’re not aware of the infamous “Rally Squirrel,” then Google: “St. Louis Cardinals Rally Squirrel.” In the 2011 MLB season, it made several appearances at very key moments. And, when the Cardinals won the Word Series that year, the guys even had a little pic of a squirrel on their rings to pay homage to the little critter that brought them good luck. No joke! You can even get a stuffed rally squirrel… Yes, your humble blogger here has one. GO CARDINALS!! RALLY SQUIRREL!! 🙂
Outstanding!! Kudos to the front office of the St. Louis Cardinals for standing firm against the brazenly hypocritical bullying tactics of the gay mafia. They want the right, and support, to have their gay days, and “pride” parades and so on…without ANY opposition whatsoever. And yet, they don’t want the other aside (i.e. Christians) afforded the same freedom to express THEIR views and hold THEIR events. The gay mafia are a bunch of self-righteous, self-serving, hypocritical, fascist, pc-police and speech Nazis.
Indeed! What a touching story about a real class act. Thanks to Derrick Goold over at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for bringing us that piece. It’s so great that the Cardinal front office is keeping “doors open” about the future. So, ya never know.. But, for now..this was a fitting tribute.

Hope you’ll continue to call the great city of St. Louis home. GO CARDINALS!!! 🙂
