Thoughts about the current NFL/protest situation.

I’m glad I genuinely don’t give a shit about the NFL situation right now. By “not giving a shit”, I mean not getting angry about the whole situation. I have my opinions about the whole situation, but I’m not as angry about it as it seems like everyone else is.

In fact, I actually find myself siding more with the players. I’m not going to preach at anyone, but raising awareness about police brutality should not be an issue. It especially shouldn’t be an issue if your problem with it comes from the fact that people aren’t obeying ridiculous customs towards a piece of cloth and a song. You had family that died. That’s tragic. But if you say that person died “protecting our freedoms”, why are you getting mad when anyone exercises those freedoms? I can understand that you want people to show respect to those that died believing they were protecting freedoms (whether or not they were is a separate issue). But what freedoms are being defended if people can’t take a knee during the national anthem? Or keeping their hat on? Once again, I get the whole “respect” thing, but you have to see the point that dying for freedoms is pointless if people can’t exercise them. And yes, I know, “You have the freedom to complain about people kneeling”. But I’m going to side with people raising awareness about police brutality more than I’m going to side with people who unquestioningly worship the American flag and support American soldiers, no matter how unjust their involvements may be. If you always believe that the soldiers from your country are always doing good things in the world, and are always commanded to do good things in the world, you have a very naive way of looking at the world. And for that, I side with the players. Their cause makes a HELLUVA lot more sense.

And, besides: Doesn’t the NFL raise awareness for causes? Don’t they wear pink for breast cancer awareness? Why can’t the players raise awareness about police brutality? Especially when your problem with it is that a piece of cloth isn’t being worshiped, and soldiers aren’t being unquestioningly worshiped, even though many of them come back full of guilt for the heinous acts they were “commanded” to commit? If soldiers keep coming back with PTSD because of the violence they either saw happen or committed themselves, maybe we should start asking why they are making the decisions to subject themselves to that in the first place? Why isn’t “protecting the freedoms of Americans” enough for them to avoid the PTSD of witnessing bloodshed? Perhaps that’s the question we should start asking instead of worshiping the stars and bars and those that fight for it.

I like what Adam Kokesh has to say about his service in Iraq. He doesn’t like being “thanked” for his service. Check him out if you’ve never heard of him. He’s got a good perspective about it.

How baseball began.

Let me tell you how I think the game of baseball started.

Some guy threw a rock at some other guy.

The other guy was pissed, and the first guy said “Take that stick and try to hit it back at me.”

The second guy said “Ok”, and then proceeded to get hit with the rock again.

Well, this time, he had a stick, so he proceeded to beat the shit out of the first guy with the stick.

Then the first guy said “Alright, alright. Let’s be civilized.” And they both knew that throwing rocks and hitting rocks was fun, so they came up with rules.

And that’s why the rules of baseball seem so weird: because it was a game constructed simply to keep men from killing each other due to having too much fun with balls and sticks.

…And don’t most rules come for that very reason?

What’s the point of getting your picture taken with attractive cheerleaders at sporting events?

Everyone knows you aren’t dating, because they have the fucking team’s logo on their chest, and have giant, goddamn plastic pom-poms (and I AIN’T talkin’ about her boobs! <3), and you can’t grab any good bits (because that’s rape. Duh), and you aren’t going to get any casual sex or the girl’s phone number or anything. I mean, are people that fucking desperate for attention from an attractive girl? Or are they that desperate to seem masculine in front of their friends that they want to show off themselves in a picture with a sexy woman?

Sinner

If you’re going to be a sinner, be the best goddamn sinner that you can be…

European: “I can play for NBA?”

NFL broadcasters: “Steelers fans travel well.”…

I hate it when NFL broadcasters say that “Steelers fans travel well.”

You know DAMN well that all of those fans don’t travel from Pittsburgh.

Hell, most of them don’t even travel from PENNSYLVANIA.

You know that most of those Steelers fans in the Georgia Dome have lived in Georgia their ENTIRE fucking lives.
