Oh, Bomani…

I used to watch ESPN religiously. “Around the Horn” was one of the shows I watched every day. Woody Paige was always my favorite. But I’ve stopped paying for television. I’ve stopped watching sports. I spend most of my free time on the internet now. But I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and realized that I’m still seeing “Around the Horn” in my Facebook feed.

I saw a video including my dear friend, Bomani Jones. And I remembered that I still have some screenshots of a couple of exchanges between he and myself on Twitter. As I have deleted my Twitter a while back, I just thought it would be interesting to share these exchanges on a social platform that I do have. Lol. What a professional.

Murray Rothbard on sports.

“Of all areas of life, sports should be the arena least touched by politics. For the glory of being a sports fan is precisely that we are engaging in fun and play, that we are permitted to be ‘irrational’; that is, to be Yankee or Mets fans, to love our team and to hate the enemy, without having to ground these passions in systematic, moral or metaphysical theory. So it is particularity obnoxious when the gaggle of left Puritans invades and takes over the field of sports. Which they have done, of course, with a vengeance.

The Hate Thought squad has run rampant in sports for years. Veteran and respected sports figures, such as Al Campaneris and Jimmy the Greek, have seen their careers destroyed because they gave one politically improper answer to an interviewer’s question. No one dares even explore whether or not the answers were correct; their very expression is a hate-thought-crime; unlike other, seemingly graver, crimes, from their punishment there is no reprieve.

I like to think that sports writers are above politics’ that sports and only sports fill their minds. But now, they too have succumbed, and are, in fact, viciously leftist whenever politics is deemed relevant to sports.”
