No, the NFL Is Not a Hotbed of Wife and Child Beaters
Let me begin with two bits of information: If I made the rules, Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson would be out of the NFL and probably both of them would be doing some time for assault and child abuse. I really don’t care about NFL football. My sports seasons are MLB and NHL. I watch the NFL for about 2 weeks before hockey starts. Remember, | Read More »

We, America, Created Ray Rice
Ray Rice faced the media today for the first time since he knocked his fiancee unconscious and dragged her to his hotel room. I didn’t watch; I have little interest in hearing questions from the same media that insists upon calling Rice an “alleged” woman beater even though he was literally caught on tape and even though he’s essentially admitted doing it. Neither do I | Read More »
An open letter to Michael Sam….
Dear Michael, where to begin? It’s been a whirlwind week…. Heck, make that YEAR—drafted into the National Football League, letting the world know that being gay is your “private business” in a press event seen by millions, praise from the leader… cough…. of the Free World, who compassionately called between $30,000-a-plate fundraisers to affirm your “bravery.” Heady times. Your private business is now as private | Read More »

Who the hell cares about Michael Sam’s sexual orientation? UPDATED for name mistake
To be honest, I don’t give any damn for sports usually. I occasionally watch the Superbowl and my dad has always been sports fan and in fact went to KSU which is home to K-State football. Other than that though, I’m just not interested in sports and generally haven’t for most of my life. With that all aside though, let’s get to the issue at | Read More »

The “h” in homosexual stands for hero or something
In a series of interviews meant to draw attention to how he chooses to use his penis in sexual situations, University of Missouri All-American Michael Sam declared to the world that he is homosexual. Well, in the words of the Church lady: Of course, the hedonistic society we now find ourselves in says that this is not only OK, but apparently this qualifies Mr. Sam | Read More »
Tech at Night: Obama, the Democrats, and the Press use NSA and Target to distract from Obama’s failures.
It’s neat how the New York Times is dredging up an old NSA website as news. I guess it beats writing about Obamacare breakins or Benghazi.
And it’s interesting how Democrats don’t seem to want to dig into the Healthcare.gov or Benghazi failures but seem ready to blame Target for crimes against them.
So the Obama administration wants us to believe that taking gun databases from the states is legal, Healthcare.gov is legal, but NSA is illegal. Sure, buddy.

A political timeout for a football rant
I have to take a 30 second political timeout for a moment and discuss some football. You see, it was a very bad weekend for football in Wyoming, at least for me. If I don’t get this out, I won’t be able to move on, stay in a foul mood, say something stupid, and get banned from posting comments again. We don’t want that. So | Read More »

The Georgia Game and Leonard’s NFL Losers by gamecock
Contrary to the tunnel vision one-note wonders of sports talk media, it wasn’t the Marcus Lattimores and/or Jadeveon Clowneys that defeated their SEC rival Georgia the last three years and their in-state arch rival Clemson for the last four years. No, it was The USC, founded 1801, Fighting Gamecocks. That’s right, not the Bush Heisman-forfeiting, perennially-on-probation, 1880-founded prophylactic-Southern Cal Trojan brand of whippersnappers that gave | Read More »

The Heart of Riley N-words-in-anger Cooper in Obama’s G-D America

Are You Ready for Some Politically Correct Football?
If you’re a sports fan, or even if you’re not, you’ve likely heard about NBA athlete Jason Collins publicly announcing that he’s gay. Of course, gays in professional sports is hardly a revelation, but Collins has the distinction of being the first openly gay athlete who currently plays for a major American team sport. It’s making headlines everywhere, right on up to the cover of | Read More »
