Well...the hockey season has restarted. I tuned in last night to watch the PHI-PIT game. To might utter surprise and delight, there was NO KNEELING!!!! My faith in the NHL has been restored.

It's not ALL without social justice B.S., however. The Bruins put out this statement...



At least I can applaud them for not kneeling... [ Roll Eyes and loooong sigh]



"If you’re a leader, you lead the way. Not just on the easy ones; you take the tough ones too…” – MAJ Richard D. Winters (1918-2011), E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24

Nascar got my vote to not watch anymore.
So did Formula 1.

At least, I have Moto GP.
They are going too fast to care about BLM.

I'm pretty hopeful we won't see any kneeling or other such nonsense with hockey players, they're just too classy for that type of behavior. I fully expect messaging from the league and individual clubs, especially since "silence is violence" and anyone who doesn't speak out against inequality is guilty of promoting it.

My team, LAK, have joined an alliance to promote diversity in sports by supporting local sports organizations and community programs targeting minority kids, as well as hiring more minorities into leadership roles. While I'm obviously not outright opposed to this, I do worry it's a slippery slope towards more extreme leftist ideology.

So for now things are ok, but if I get one whiff of support for BLM or democratic socialist agendas by the league or individual teams/players I'm out.



Mongo only pawn in game of life...

Are there any black hockey players? Just heard Chris Rock say on the Comedy Channel, there won't be any until they have heated ice rinks.

Yes there are. Black swimmers as well. As you might expect they are generally Canadian. You must not follow hockey. P. K. Subban is one of the best defensemen in the NHL.

No, I don't follow hockey. It wasn't until I got a 60 inch TV, that I could see the damned puck.
