Sorry.



[GOLF VOICE]

The athlete from the US approaches the set…

He blows gently into his hands to warm them…a look of determination on his face.

He needs a perfect run to make the podium…

Here he goes….he cups the set…and pushes in….


BRRRRRRRRRRRRBBLLLABBBBRDDDBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBLLLLLLLLLDDDSBBRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

OM MY…that was a perfect run with an nice even gentle release…no spit to be seen left behind.

I think he’s done it!!

Pause…

The judges scores…9.9…9.9…10.0…9.9…10.0..8.7

Oh my, the Russian judge is obviously jealous.

Female Weightlifter Suffers Tragic Testicle Injury Just Weeks Before Tokyo Olympics

WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND—100% totally female weightlifter Laurel Hubbard was forced to bid farewell to her Olympic dreams yesterday after a tragic accident left her with a severely lacerated testicle. Hubbard would have been the first transgender woman to compete in the Olympics.

**Snip**

Hubbard said while she's disappointed she won’t be able to live out her Olympic dreams this year, that’s just the way it goes. “Sometimes your testicles get in the way,” Hubbard said. “That’s just something we gals have to deal with.”





Seriously. I think this is satire, but I am really not sure. . .

I did, albeit on an ametuer level. Then went on to MotoCross. Had a few runs in the Astrodome on an XR 75 in fact. Obviously I was fairly young but yeah, been there and done that. Could have stuck with it and might have actually done something but I was more interested in hunting and fishing.

Thing is, if a, ummmm, dude has to quality’s an alternate in the female portion of an alleged Olympic event (BMX isn’t and shouldn’t even be in the conversation), then SHE sucks.

That “SHE” part was tossed in because HE’s only showing how much of a failure he really is.

Absolute queef.

That is a damned relevant observation. Is there any documentation out there about this question?

I didn't have kids but I feel sorry for any girls at any age that have to put up with this bullshit. I am totally floored that there isn't major pushback from women and girls on this. I know I know, they generally support LGBTQRSTUV.... whatever. That still doesn't seem to account for it.

Oh I FIRMLY believe there is PLENTY of pushback from parents whose daughters are in danger of or actually losing scholarship dollars because of the actions of these mentally disturbed individuals. You can just bet your bottom dollar the Communist Pravda media is covering up the parent’s protest.

Theres no documentation needed, its quite simple. A woman who calls herself a man could never compete with actual men in terms of professional atheletics. A mediocre male athelete who calls himself a woman can actually compete against women and win.

I don't know about that. We're finding plenty of stuff to stream. But traditional broadcast TV? I'm wondering if all the money they're about to spend converting to NextGen TV will be worth it to them? I can't speak for anybody else, but we watch hardly any OTA TV anymore. Making poor content available in 4K won't make it any more attractive to us.

Olympic hammer thrower Gwen Berry ‘pissed’ national anthem was playing at Olympic trials

https://nypost.com/2021/06/27/...rns-back-to-us-flag/



A U.S. hammer thrower turned away from the American flag as she stood on the medal podium at the Olympic trials during the national anthem on Saturday, saying she’s “pissed” the Star-Spangled Banner was played as she received her bronze medal.

Gwen Berry — who qualified for her second U.S. Olympic team during the trials — shifted to face the stands rather than the flag before holding up a black shirt that reads “Activist Athlete.”

“I feel like it was a set-up, and they did it on purpose,” Berry said of the timing of the anthem. “I was pissed, to be honest.”

“They had enough opportunities to play the national anthem before we got up there,” Berry said in Oregon, where the trials are being held. “I was thinking about what I should do. Eventually I stayed there and I swayed, I put my shirt over my head. It was real disrespectful.”

Berry went on to call the playing of the national anthem a “set up” and that she didn’t plan on staging a protest.

‘”I didn’t really want to be up there,” she said. “Like I said, it was a setup. I was hot, I was ready to take my pictures and get into some shade.”

And so, while winner DeAnna Price and second-place finisher Brooke Andersen stood still on the podium with their hands over the hearts and stared straight ahead at the American and Oregon flags, Berry fidgeted and paced on the third step. Then turned away. And finally grabbed her T-shirt.

“They said they were going to play it before we walked out, then they played it when we were out there,” Berry said. “But I don’t really want to talk about the anthem because that’s not important. The anthem doesn’t speak for me. It never has.”

“My purpose and my mission is bigger than sports,” Berry said. “I’m here to represent those … who died due to systemic racism. That’s the important part. That’s why I’m going. That’s why I’m here today.”

A USA Track and Field rep disputed Berry’s characterization of the anthem playing.

“The national anthem was scheduled to play at 5:20 p.m. today,” said spokeswoman Susan Hazzard. “We didn’t wait until the athletes were on the podium for the hammer throw awards. The national anthem is played every day according to a previously published schedule.”

Unlike at the Olympics, the national anthem is not played during medal ceremonies at the Olympic trials. It has been played once per day at a set time. On Saturday, the music started at 5:25.

Berry’s Star Spangled-sub rankled several online commentators.

“We’re going to see more of this,” said author and activist Dinesh D’Souza.

“It’s going to make patriotic Americans cheer for foreign competitors and against the anti-American Americans.”

“What is wrong with people?” wondered former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

“Growing up, everyone stood for the American flag. Didn’t matter your politics, race, sex, income, religion; everyone stood for the flag. It was one of those civic rituals that brought us together,” he added. “It still should today.”

Radio talk host Mark Davis says Berry “needs to learn that it’s not about the anthem ‘speaking for her,’ it’s about a moment of gratitude for this country that makes her Olympic dream possible.”

“Shameful self-absorption,” he added.

This isn’t the first time Berry has caused controversy.


US Olympic athletes were prohibited in January 2020 from making political statements during anthems, after Berry was put on probation for raising her fist during the Pan-American Games in Peru in August 2019. US Olympic and Paralympic Committee in April reversed course, allowing kneeling and other forms of protests during the national anthem.

Berry’s protest follows a long line of professional athletes –Olympic and otherwise — using the national anthem as a tool to protest racism.

Most famously, Tommie Smith and John Carlos, two black track and field athletes, raised their fists, each clad in a black glove, as “The Star-Spangled Banner” played while they stood on the podium.

More recently, NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2016 began taking a knee when the national anthem played before games, to protest police brutality.

Geez. Kick these people out already. If you don’t appreciate being on a national team or our country, then get the fuck off. Or we should help get them off. Pay fir a first class one way ticket anyway they want. No returns, not even a layover.

You stupid, ignorant bint. It is traditional for the national anthems to be played when winners are awarded their medals.

Jebus Christos, some of these people are idiots.

No, ma'am, you weren't set up. It wasn't all about you. Nobody said, "hey, let's sneak and play the national anthem when Gwen Berry steps up onto the podium! That'll be a hoot!" I'll betcha.

I don't watch Olympic events much, but if I remember correctly, playing the national anthem -- of the winner's country -- is what they do at the podium ceremony. It's kind of a big deal, y'know?

Geeze. Everybody wants to play the victim these days.

If our national anthem doesn't "speak for you," then maybe you should adjust your thinking. And while we're talking about thinking, let's look at this business about "I was thinking about what I should do." Most people know already what to do -- be respectful of the event, the ceremony, and the other competitors.

Want to be an "activist?" Do it on your own time.

By the way: you're not the first to get all in a huff about things.







God bless America.

And some of these people think sheer, unrelenting pissyness can change the world. The only way people like her can be 'accommodated' is by asking their permission every time before playing the national anthem.

Take her off the team. Anyone not proud to respect the Anthem and the Flag should never be allowed to be associated with America on the world-wide stage.

So the actual winner of the trials seems to be all in support to have her national anthem played, hand over heart looks like she may be singing also. I thought they played the anthem of the winner. Setup? yeah thats it.
Why would anyone care what the second runner up has to say anyway.
