  • Pacific Pro Football League-The Alternative to College Football

    It limits employment to 18-20 year olds. Ineligible for the NFL but good for those who don't belong in a big time college program where they are used as indentured servants for 3+ years. $50k/yr + enrollment at a local community college. NFL style football rather than the spread style college game which is unsuited for training for the NFL. It fills a BIG void. Gainful employment and no pressure as students/celebrities. They can pay their bills while getting more NFL ready. Would it work? Anything that would get the thugs off campus would help clean up the graft going...

    It never ceases to inspire wonder to see the potential of those whose parents never intended them to be born. It also stands as a constant reminder of the potential of any life to achieve greatness, no matter what the conditions of their conception. Nick Hoot is a dedicated athlete with a tenacious drive. He displayed this tenacity even as an infant when he survived an abortion attempt despite being partially dismembered by the abortionists’ tools. He has only part of each legs and is missing a developed set of fingers. Yet, ever since he was a toddler, his relentless...

    It was finally official -- the Phillies signed Bryce Harper. Even manager Gabe Kapler, who had to answer questions about Harper by hedging his responses with “if the reports are true,” chimed in on social media. With the ball club down the road in Port Charlotte for a spring-training game against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Phillies opted for an outdoor press conference, complete with images from Harper’s first appearance on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 2009 at age 16, to the cover of the MLB the Show video game set to be released this month, all set up...

    Broward Trailer of Hialeah, FL, builder of high-quality custom boat trailers, is making moves to grow its business on a number of different fronts. Until now, the company has sold its trailers direct from the factory, but with more demand for better trailers to haul bigger boats, Broward is making moves to grow its business. “Thanks to today’s economy, we are seeing the largest and heaviest center consoles, catamarans and other high-end boats ever built,” says Broward President Jim Nall. “Customers need premium trailers to safely haul these very expensive boats and we are here to help them.” Broward Trailer...
  • Breaking: Harper signs with the Phillies for 13 years, $330 million

    MSN News ^ | 2/28/2019 | Craig Calcaterra
    It took until the end of February but Bryce Harper finally has a team. He has reached an agreement with Philadelphia Phillies. Jon Heyman says the deal is for $330 million. The length of the contract is pretty incredible too: 13 years. There are no opt-outs either. The match was a long in the making. When the offseason began the Nationals were reported to have made Harper a $300 million offer to return, the White Sox expressed considerable interest and the Phillies — openly crowing about their plan to spend “stupid money” — were thought the most likely landing spots...

    Eight players from the Ole Miss men's basketball team knelt during the national anthem before Saturday's home game against Georgia in response to a Confederacy rally near the arena. Minutes before the game, both teams formed lines for the anthem. As "The Star-Spangled Banner" began, six Rebels players -- who appeared to be KJ Buffen, D.C. Davis, Brian Halums, Luis Rodriguez, Devontae Shuler and Bruce Stevens -- knelt one by one. Two more players -- appearing to be Breein Tyree and Franco Miller Jr. -- took a knee on the song's final line. The game was being played while two...

    The Miami New Times ^ | February 20, 2019 | Luther Campbell
    It’s a travesty that Colin Kaepernick turned to an all-white legal team to plead his grievance case against the NFL and the 32 team owners. Over the weekend, the controversial quarterback wore a massive grin and a Malcolm X T-shirt after cutting a deal that will pay him between $50 million and $80 million to end a lawsuit that claimed he was blackballed by the NFL. In a photo after the announcement, he was flanked by his three lawyers, including celebrity attorney Mark Geragos. Kaepernick became a household name for leading the player protests against police brutality by kneeling during...

    Good Morning. At the top of the Newsdump. The total number of US soldiers remaining in Syria was increased to 400 on Friday. After the initial announcement by the White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders Thursday, the media was told 200. But on Friday the number was increased in the information parcelled out to the media..... Two were killed and other wounded Friday when forces loyal to Nicolas Maduro opened fire on civilians trying to keep the border with Brazil open after he ordered it shut down to prevent humanitarian aid coming across. Interim President Juan Guaido made it across...

    It’s hard to imagine how one would go about watching the Iditarod in person. The iconic route stretches more than 1,100 miles from Anchorage to Nome, and the race can last for weeks. The record for fastest winning time, set in 2017, stands at 8 days, 3 hours, 40 minutes and 13 seconds; the slowest winning time, in 1974, was nearly 21 days. Logistically, it isn’t a spectator sport. But for those of you yearning for that sweet, sweet Venn diagram of outdoors, winter, ice and snow, and sled dogs, the Iditarod offers something infinitely more exciting and more hands-on...

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Can somebody tell me why I still watch these things? – The NFL almost pulled off what I had always assumed was the utterly impossible last night, staging a Super Bowl game that was very nearly as boring and tedious as a damn soccer match. Yes, yes, yes, I know – it was a “great defensive battle,” right? Spare me, please. It was a game in which LA Rams quarterback Jared Goff played worse than any Super Bowl QB since at least Billy Kilmer and really since Joe Kapp in Super Bowl...
  • Trump: ‘I would have a hard time’ letting Barron play football

    The Politico ^ | February 3, 2019 | David Beavers
    President Donald Trump, in an interview aired on Super Bowl Sunday, said he “would have a hard time” letting his youngest son Barron play football, but would ultimately let him decide. Responding to host Margaret Brennan on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Trump said of 12-year-old Barron playing football: “If he wanted to? Yes. Would I steer him that way? No, I wouldn't.” “I just don't like the reports that I see coming out having to do with football,” Trump said. “I mean, it's a dangerous sport, and I think it's really tough.” The National Football League has come under some...

    Well, here it is, Super Bowl Sunday. I know a lot of you don’t care. Even so, you might care about CNN’s ace reporter on all forms of racial/gendered bias (Don the Lemon) grilling of Gladys Knight on why she is being a disloyal black b***h by singing the National Anthem at the start of the game. Um, because she’s a singer and that’s what she does? Little Don came to within a hair’s breadth of coming right out and accusing her of being whatever the proper gender-neutral term for “house slave” is. As always, Ms. Knight was classier by half:...

    Look, the Super Bowl is on Sunday, and I know some of you are sitting it out and that’s fine. But this appeal is directed towards those of you who are going to watch the game anyway and root against the Patriots. First of all, how can you root against a team called the Patriots? ABT- anyone but Tom? Really? That’s nearly as bad as Trump Derangement Syndrome.Secondly, don’t people like underdogs anymore? Oh sure, I know, the Patriots aren’t your classic underdog team with all of their Super Bowl trips/wins, and Tom is certainly not considered an underdog in...

    Following last week’s egregious non-call of obvious pass interference by a Los Angeles Rams player against a New Orleans Saints receiver, attorney Frank D’Amico, Jr. filed a lawsuit calling for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to use his powers under Rule 17 to reverse the outcome of the game that the Rams eventually won in overtime or schedule a replay of the last two minutes after a pass interference penalty is imposed on the Rams. Goodell is reported to be disinclined to take the action demanded in the suit because “bad officiating has been part of football since the sport was...
