Living By the Sword

25 07 2016


Michael Jordan is donating $2 million in total, half to the International Association of the Chiefs of Police, and the other half to the NAACP-LDF, to bridge the gap and build trust between cops and dindus.

Wouldn’t it be ironic if he took the $2 million out of his Nike endorsement deal and the shoe royalties he makes?

“Ironic?  Why?”

Because dindus murder each other over Nike Jordan shoes.

I can’t wait to see how Crying Jordan deals with this.

It Could Be a Thing, or It Could Be Just One of Those Things

22 07 2016

Donora, Pennsylvania

Stan the Man, and both Griffeys, and a few other professional sports figures.  This town is pretty close to Pittsburgh, but too far away to be considered a suburb.  We do know that Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas of western Pennsylvania are known for a lot of big name quarterbacks.

Any theories?  Or is it just a coincidence?

If this is a cluster, then I think it has something to do with the area’s former mass employment heavy industrial economy inculcating a mentality in the long time residents that made it really conducive for team sports.  It’s part of the reason why, historically, Bos-Wash and Great Lakes sports fans have a more passionate reputation than California’s.

The Process Should Be the Punishment

21 07 2016


North Carolina, the state where men use men’s privies, women use women’s, and the NBA is upset about that.

If they actually do that, if I was either the North Carolina Attorney General or the District Attorney for Mecklenburg County, I’d file felony extortion charges against Adam Silver.  Sure, they probably have no case, but no bother, the process will be the punishment.

Gridiron Ceiling (HBD On Parade)

Washington, D.C.

A whole article about this kind of thing without a mention of the dork in Orlando with a fax machine?  In fact, Georgetown and its B-school are listed here as the academic source, which has to infuriate the dork.

It says that the pipeline to NFL head coach often goes through offensive coordinators, offensive quality control coaches, and quarterbacks coaches.  And those are heavily white.  In contrast, where you see blacks dominate in the NFL assistant coaching universe are running backs coaches and defensive secondary coaches.  Those are not good pipelines to head coaching.

Because we’re versed in HBD, we know why the QB position is heavily white and RB, CB, FS and SS are heavily black.  Because the QB position rewards intricate forward thinking and planning, and RB and the defensive secondary reward speed and impulsive reaction.  So it stands to reason why QB coaches are white and RB and defensive secondary coaches are black.

“It’s all messed up out here.  And we have to change things!”

The world reacts:

Yeah yeah yeah yippee right on!

I react:

Did they actually say anything?

John Jones, one of our frequent commenters, e-mails in with this:
> 7:15pm game at Busch stadium vs. Miami. This should be interesting.
> Another shooting on the arch grounds perhaps?

If you have tickets to that game, don’t go, and don’t be fool enough to sell them to someone else so they can be a victim.  Just keep them as a souvenir.

All-Star Bafflegab

San Diego

Yes, the dork in Orlando with a fax machine gets a shout out.

But I find the way the author of this article (a white man writing for ESPN’s black boutique?) is trying to bafflegab us to be rather ironic, and instructive in one of my running themes in this space, the moving goalpost of the definition of diversity.  He’s lauding this year’s ASG for being half “players of color,” but then cites the dork’s moaning and griping about the lack of “diversity” in the major leagues as evidenced by “only” 8.3% of opening day 2016 rosters consisting of black players, and “black” in this instance means black American, domestic blacks.  On the other hand, the players of color who are not domestic blacks both in the ASG and in the MLB don’t seem to matter to the people who complain about the lack of diversity in baseball, the aforementioned dork and many others, because at that moment, when they say diversity, they only mean domestic black.  Even though a lot of those players are either black or mulatto, they’re not American in nationality and their native language is something other than English, usually Spanish, so domestic blacks that speak Ebonics don’t identify with them, and their diversity isn’t counted as diversity when domestic blacks only want diversity to mean domestic blacks.  If Yasiel Puig’s distant grandfather would have been unloaded off the slave ship in Virginia instead of Havana, the Dodger today would be known as Darnell Richardson, and would be lauded as an example of diversity in baseball, but because it was Havana, the black man is Cuban in nationality and is a native Spanish speaker and is therefore not diverse.

I know, you need a scorecard to keep up with it all.  I don’t have a scorecard, just a fast brain and an increasingly keen sense of when people are playing games with rhetoric.

Also, if you haven’t yet, I have set up a Twitter troll account wherein I parody The Undefeated.
