The Cubs did something that hasn't been done in 92 years, and nobody wanted to talk about it Jeff Passan MLB columnist Oct 8, 2016, 11:35 PM CHICAGO Within seconds of Travis Wood bathing in congratulations from his Chicago Cubs teammates for doing something that hadnt been done in more than 90 years, he was warned. Yeah, he had hit a postseason home run, which was great, and he happened to be a pitcher, which made it even greater, and on top of that he was a relief pitcher, which made it Halleys Comet rare, but nobody wanted to hear about it. Not because it wasnt magnificent. Oh, it was. A 29-year-old pitcher, cast to the dutiful role of long reliever ...
Milo: Even If You’re Acquitted Of Rape, Feminists Can Still Ruin Your Life
Post Date: 2016-10-08 06:45:01 by Ada
Breitbart Senior Editor Milo Yiannopoulos gave a speech tonight at Auburn University titled, How Feminism Hurts Women. In the speech Milo focused on how feminists can continue to ruin your life, even if youve been acquitted of a false rape claim and how this has driven many men to celibacy. Affirmative consent, for those who dont know, is the idea that if you dont consent at every stage of a sexual encounter, its rape. That means asking for every kiss and asking for every boob squeeze. Its almost as if feminists want everyone to remain celibate. said Milo to a packed auditorium. Just because they cant get any sex, they ...
There will never be another Vin Scully, the last link to baseball's glorious past. The 87-year-old retires for good on Sunday.

When Derek Jeter retired two years ago, it was the "end of an era" in baseball. David Ortiz will call it quits whenever the Red Sox finish their season and you'll hear those same four words used. It's the same when Peyton Manning or Tom Brady retires or when a league changes television networks (like when Fox grabbed the NFC from CBS in the mid-'90s), its playoff format or major rules. But in all those cases, eras aren't ending. A page is being turned or, sometimes, maybe a new chapter is beginning. There might never be another Roger Federer or Serena Williams but tennis won't cease to exit without them. (Witness golf and Tiger Woods.) The NFL was great on ...
The perfect marriage in sports is Theo Epstein and the Cubs

The perfect marriage in sports is Theo Epstein and the Cubs by Jeff Passan MLB columnist Sep 28, 2016, 10:06 PM Theo Epstein Cubs president of baseball operation Theo Epstein agreed to a new five-year contract worth up to $50 million. (AP) Of all Theo Epsteins great discoveries over this last half-decade, a sense of comfort may be his best find. This is not to be mistaken with complacency, because Epsteins reality is far more focus and drive and obsession than it ever will be lounging in a chair, staring at what he created and guffawing as he pats himself on the back. Comfort is more about knowing who you are and where you belong. Theo Epstein belongs in Chicago, with the ...

David Ortiz has perfect response for fan who taunted him

David Ortiz has perfect response for fan who taunted him Mike Oz Sep 20, 2016, 9:32 PM Heres the latest history-making homer news for David Ortiz: He hit home run No. 36 on Tuesday night, as part of the Boston Red Soxs 5-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles. The three-run homer gave Ortiz the most ever by a player in his farewell season, topping Dave Kingmans mark from 1986. But theres a great secondary story to Big Papis dinger homer that probably wont make the history books, so we should tell it. It involves Ortiz, a Baltimore heckler and the best kind of response a ball flying over the fence. When Ortiz flied out in his previous at-bat, a ...

Adam Jones explains lack of MLB protests: 'Baseball is a white man's sport' Mike Oz Big League Stew Sep 12, 2016, 11:19 AM As the number of NFL players joining Colin Kaepernicks silent protest grows by the game, the movement has yet to spread to baseball, where players usually stand for the National Anthem and salute the flag six days per week. Why is that? According to Baltimore Orioles star Adam Jones, its a matter of numbers and demographics and the same type of inequality that Kaepernick is speaking out against. Jones said it bluntly to USA Todays Bob Nightengale: Baseball is a white mans sport. Hes right that white players in ...

Paralympics Should Reflect the Best of the Human Spirit
Post Date: 2016-08-24 07:58:54 by Stephen Lendman
Paralympics Should Reflect the Best of the Human Spirit by Stephen Lendman Athletes competing in Olympic or other contests, despite all sorts of physical impairments and disabilities, reflect the best of sport - individuals with courage to go on with their lives, not letting physical or other limitations stop them from being the best they can be. For them, competing alone is winning. Showing up is its own reward. Banning numerous Russian athletes from Rio 2016 and its entire Paralympian team because of US pressure further disgraces already hugely tarnished Olympism - more about spectacle, profiteering and exploitation than sport at its finest. In early August, the International ...
The Price of US Olympian Arrogance
Post Date: 2016-08-23 07:11:29 by Stephen Lendman
The Price of US Olympian Arrogance The behavior of gold medalist swimmer Ryan Lochte and three of his teammates (Jack Conger, Gunnar Bentz and Jimmy Feigen) in Rio was deplorable - explained in a previous article. They were caught red-handed lying about being robbed. Out of sheer stupidity, arrogance and drunkenness, they caused thousands of dollars of damage to a gas station. Their behavior resembled how America operates worldwide - raping and pillaging countries for power and profits. In Lochtes case, he learned a painful lesson, losing all his major lucrative endorsement deals. According to ESPN, Speedo, Ralph Lauren, Gentle Hair Removal and Airweave dropped him. Speedo said ...
Olympia’s True Victors

Once again the only country of any size that, as far as I can see, emerges from the Olympic Games with any credit is India. Accounting for something like a sixth of the worlds population, it had notthe last time I looked at the tablewon a single medal in any event. This proves that, at least in this regard, it has its priorities right. It has steadfastly refused to measure itself by the number of medals it wins at the Olympics and does nothing whatever to encourage its citizens to devote their lives to trying to jump a quarter of a centimeter longer or higher than anyone else in human history. This is the kind of goal that totalitarian regimes set for their citizens (or ...

Disgraced US Olympians

Disgraced US Olympians by Stephen Lendman Six-time US Olympic gold medalist swimmer Ryan Loches claim about being robbed at gunpoint in Rio with three of his teammates (Jack Conger, Gunnar Bentz and Jimmy Feigen) was proved false by evidence showing he lied. Their behavior earned them gold medals in deceitfulness, dishonor and disgrace - another black mark against Olympism, this year especially tainted by the unprecedented banishment of Russian athletes deserving to participate, excluded solely for political reasons. Why I refused to watch a moment of the contests unfit to be called sport - Russia bashing this years featured event, many of its talented athletes deprived of ...

Rio Represents Olympism at Its Worst
Post Date: 2016-08-07 08:20:10 by Stephen Lendman
Rio Represents Olympism at Its Worst by Stephen Lendman Olympism is more about hype, profiteering, and exploitation than sport at its best. This year, it resembles militarization seen in war zones with tens of thousands of soldiers, police and other security operatives infesting Rio, the site of the games - hosted by an illegitimate US- supported coup detat regime. Mass street protests rocked opening night, continued on Saturday, perhaps remaining unrelenting through the August 21 closing ceremony - media scoundrels downplaying or ignoring them. Among the NYTs top commented on reports and commentaries, nothing on Rio rage, nothing on the coup detat regime hosting this ...

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) stopped short of banning all Russian athletes from Rio competition - on the one hand, saying theyll be evaluated individually on their eligibility. On the other, indicating ...
