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.

Equality is Unfairness in Women’s Sports

Claims for Equality are Directly Leading to Unfairness Striving for equality in all walks of life seems like a great mission. We are all humans, therefore we should all be treated the same way.

No Journalists, You Are Not Special

When Journalists Start Thinking They Are Special, They Lose All Credibility Jim Acosta is a virus. No, not the man himself, but what he represents. Like most viruses, there is an inherent evil.
