About Jake Donnelly

Sports broadcaster, specializing in play by play. Have called every sport under the sun with the exception of cricket, rugby, and kabaddi, but I wouldn't mind giving all three of those a try. The only promise I give you is if you tune in to one of my broadcast, for however long you do so, you'll enjoy life during that period of time. These blogs are my way of sharing with the world my passionate (and hopefully articulate) responses to the sports world and the world in general. I do not mean to offend anybody with these blogs, but if you're offended, hey, contact me and I'm always up for a discussion or debate.

Why The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Would Never Get Made Today When people claim, "that show would never get made today," they are almost invariably speaking of something that is so racist, sexist, or homophobic that our current sensitivities would preclude it from getting created.

How the Election was Stolen; a Rant on Media Malfeasance

The 2020 Election was Stolen, But Not How You Think Although possible, the 2020 election was not stolen through mail-in voting. Nor was the 2020 election stolen when poll watchers representing the GOP were systematically prohibited from doing their job. No, none of these things are how the 2020 election was stolen.

Why Our Fear of Death is Overtaking Our Zest for Life When I awoke in Tel Aviv, Israel today (Sunday, October 25th) and did my usual quick check of the American sports highlights, I saw two things that made me think I was drunk: Indiana defeats Penn State, and Brett Phillips is Rays' savior.
