Enes Kanter: A True Modern Day Patriot

Enes Kanter Refuses to Bow to Erdogan or Anyone When the founding fathers of America threw tea into the Boston Harbor and aimed their muskets at Redcoats, it was to protest unjust rule.

Sport Injuries are Painful… And Worthwhile

There is Nothing Like Sport Injuries to Set Your Mind Right Sport injuries suck. Pull a hamstring? Learn a new way to walk for a couple of weeks. Sprain an ankle? Never get back to 100%... EVER! Snap a bone in your arm, lacerate your face to the tune of 20 stitches, tear a ligament. [...]

Athletic Competition and the End of Prejudice

True Competitors, True Athletes Know Athletic Competition Erases all Prejudice Every so often I wade into the online battlefield of Twitter and find myself under fire against charges of racism, sexism, and transphobia. I think Colin Kaepernick was a middling quarterback and is either a woefully ignorant person or a devious hack who holds hypocritical [...]

Colin Kaepernick Finally Comes Clean

Colin Kaepernick Shows His True Colors; They Are Not Red, White and Blue It. Was. Never. About. Police. Brutality. When Colin Kaepernick took a knee to supposedly protest against police brutality, the timing seemed weird. He stood as a starter, he kneeled as a backup. Those doubting his sincerity--but wanting to believe maybe the timing [...]

When a Bad Question Goes Bad

Why Brad Marchand Bristled at One Question Before you form an opinion on the matter, just keep this one question in mind when watching the following interview; "what is the point of the second question?" Ready? Let's roll: That is Kyle Bukauskas of Sportsnet asking Brad Marchand of the Boston Bruins if he [...]

The Subtle Difference in Men’s and Women’s Sports

There is One Main Difference in Men's and Women's Sports That is Always Overlooked Women's sports are a great thing. While the first Modern Olympics in 1986 stupidly prohibited women from competing, they rectified that error by 1900. Since then, women's sports and athletics has taken off. Title IX promised true equality and it has [...]

Gronk and the End of the Best Tight End Debate

Gronk Dominated Like No Other Tight End Before Him Rob Gronkowski is the greatest tight end of all-time. It is not close. Nobody could catch, run, AND block like "The Gronk." Maybe Tony Gonzalez was as good of a pass catcher. You might find enough evidence to convince someone bringing up the awesome abilities of Shannon Sharpe or [...]

Tim Thomas & Braden Holtby vs. The White House; A Litmus Test for 2019

Is There a Difference Between Tim Thomas Boycotting the White House in 2012 and Braden Holtby Doing the Same in 2019? Tim Thomas' 2011 season is arguably the best single-season by a goalie in hockey history: he won the Vezina Trophy for season's best goalie, the Conn Smythe for playoffs MVP, and back-stopped the Boston [...]
