I've been a baseball fan since around 1951 when I was 8 years old and my Dad took me to a Pittsburgh Pirates game. I faithfully followed the Bucs throughout my schooling and career in the Navy and following civilian career. I saw arguably the best world series game ever when Bill Mazeroski of the Bucs beat the favored Yankees in a walk-off home run in the 9th inning of the 7th game.

Around 2006, I got sick of the Pirates owner and management and picked up on the bottom of the barrel Nationals. I fell in love with that team and was ecstatic when they took the 2019 series. I bought all the gear, had a continuing subscription to MLB-TV and traditionally watch 100+ games a year.

Come opening day 2020 with both teams kneeling, I shut it down in disgust. I've cancelled my MLB-TV subscription and have gathered up my gear to dispose of it, probably by target practice and fire. Even my world series jersey.

I left the NFL and the Steelers in the same way because of Kaepernick. Now, Major League Baseball bows to what I consider a murdering domestic terrorist organization. I give a rats butt if those players want to demonstrate and protest off field, but when it disgraces our National Anthem and Old Glory, they can all rot in He11.

Babe Ruth, High School, American Legion and college baseball will keep me entertained from here on out. I hope Commissioner Rob Manfred and MLB are totally destroyed through this absolutely stupid decision.

Black Live Matter is based on a Fuckin' Lie.

The "organization" started with the incident involving Michael Brown and LE Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson. The lie being that Brown was on his hands and knees begging not to be shot.

BLM is a SCAM. Just like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Barrack Obama. Not going to "flame" you, but I judge I.Q. points on this kind of absolute bullshit.

Well...back to the MLB subject at hand...

I was having dinner with friends at my local Cantina and of course TVs are hanging on all the walls. Yup...in true SJW fashion, there were the Astros and whatever other team of losers they are playing...ALL OF THEM...kneeling right there on the baselines like a bunch of Saturday nite whores ready to give a BJ. FMLB.....

I just PRAY this doesn't seep into the NHL. I'm not holding my breath...

Fuck it, I'm done with pro sports. I haven't been a big fan of anything in a long time, but still enjoyed listening to a baseball game on the radio, or occasionally going to see the Mariners. It was actually affordable entertainment. Never again. I'm tired of being socially engineered. I guess I'll take up fencing or croquet or something. If that isn't obscure enough to avoid this stupidity, then I guess maybe Calcio? If nothing else, I don't speak Italian so I won't have to listen to their shit.

*sigh* It was the Mariners. Absolutely disgusting.

Oh, I guarantee it. Seattle has a new NHL team. Don't expect to see any of those players not kow-towing to the rich, woke liberals that own the team and the arena.

If you think baseball is bad don't try watching any soccer. Turned on a MLS game last week and I could not believe how overboard it was. Every player had on a BLM shirt. There was a silent kneeling moment instead of an anthem.

I've seen church services less worshipful. All hail our new Lord, Black Lives Matter.

No MLB,MLS,NBA,NFL nor Nascar in my household this year.

Looking forward to the NHL quasi-playoffs in 2 weeks and crossing my fingers that the League and its players do not capitulate.

The UFC has also been relatively square and has avoided getting caught up in all this drama.

For me it is Zimm. He was the first draft pic of the nats. He hit the first home run in the first game at the new stadium. Then in the first World series game, he hits the first home run for the franchise. For me it was nearly as perfect as the "perfect moment in baseball" Sid Bream rounding 3rd racing for home.
So my wife let me by myself a Christmas present, a Zimm signed copy of that moment. I have the baseball, the hat etc. and in a great turn, Zimm was not on the field for the BLM event, he chose to sit this season out.

So that moment, for me, is still untarnished. I will return to Baseball, if this shit ever gets cleaned up.

You do know Cuban supports BLM and was referring to people who complain when athletes kneel for the anthem? He has no issue with it and supports players being allowed to kneel. Fuck him.

As far as I'm concerned all professional sports can cease to exist. The older I get the less I care and they continue to get more and more whiny. I think we'll see the NFL either turn into flag football or completely go away in my lifetime (I'm 38). There is nothing they can do to stop the brain from hitting the skull. CTE cases will only get worse. A lot of these professional athletes will be SOL if they can't make money playing.

I think I am going to order some "STP" , the oil additive, stickers and put one on my car. It will stand for "Stop The Pandering". Maybe we can start our own movement. We already have the stickers.

I believe Free Agency was the methadone that has helped society rip the bandaid off all at once in 2020. That effectively dissolved the united city/shared experience thing. I think that really started to illuminate for the public just how much these guys are paid and how poorly many of them comport themselves.
Death to the NFL. I might still forgive MLB, if they stop now.
