    n Ohio dad was not about to let his son’s high school basketball game begin without the National Anthem. Unfortunately, the audio system failed so Trenton Brown sang it on his own from the stands. This was his first time singing the National Anthem solo and he completely nailed it. The Star Spangled Banner is a very challenging song to sing even with practice. Brown decided to belt out the song with some encouragement from his wife to kick off the game.

    FC Dallas defender Reggie Cannon lashed out at fans who booed as his teammates and Nashville SC players knelt during the national anthem ahead of their Wednesday night matchup. Cannon told reporters he was baffled that fans in Toyota Stadium – the home of FC Dallas – were booing as players knelt in protest of racial injustice and police brutality. “I think it was disgusting. I think it was absolutely disgusting,” Cannon said, according to “You got fans booing you for people taking a stand for what they believe in. Millions of other people support this cause and we...

    Orlando Magic star Jonathan Issac became the first NBA player to refuse to wear a Black Lives Matter t-shirt and kneel during the national anthem late last week. Issac, who has supported the MAGA movement in the past and is a happily married devout Christian, cited his faith in Jesus Christ and his opposition to the demands of the BLM mob in justifying his decision.As a result, his jersey sales have skyrocketed to #2, only trailing China-owned Lebron James. Sadly, as happens often in sports, Issac tore his ACL towards the end of the game and had to be...

    Jonathan Isaac exited Sunday's game between Orlando and Sacramento after suffering an apparent left leg injury. The third-year forward fell to the ground in the fourth quarter after planting his feet on a drive to the basket. He remained there clutching his knee, and a wheelchair was eventually brought out to help him off the floor. Isaac, whom the Magic drafted sixth overall in 2017, was enjoying a career year with averages of 12.1 points, 6.9 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and 1.5 steals per game. It has also been an injury-tested season for Isaac, who only just returned from a hyperextended...

    “That was beautifully done. Done in unity. Nice to see,” former Orlando Magic star Shaquille O’Neal said on TNT. It is time to not only boycott basketball, but to turn off and stop watching every professional sporting event that is broadcast across America. Look at the hatred in the faces of these privileged, rich Liberals who have nothing but hatred and contempt for the country that made them wealthy bouncing a ball. They want real change? I say America turns them off starting immediately, and let’s see them have to get real jobs and actually have to work for a...

    San Francisco Giants pitcher Sam Coonrod was the only player to stand during a moment honoring the Black Lives Matter movement ahead of the season opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers, telling reporters after the game that as a Christian he “can’t kneel before anything besides God.” MLB provided teams with a long black ribbon that players on both sides jointly held as they kneeled in unity. Every player and coach from the Washington Nationals and New York Yankees took part in the demonstration ahead of their game, but hours later, Coonrod stood alone. I’m a Christian," he said, according...

    American basketball legend Charles Barkley continues to anger leftists by holding very moderate political opinions. Last month, Barkley took issue with black celebrities promulgating anti-Semitic and anti-white racism. And on Thursday, Barkley again ticked off leftists by defending professional sports players who choose to stand during the national anthem. The first game of the NBA returned on Thursday in a matchup between the Utah Jazz and the New Orleans Pelicans. Every player, coach, and even the referee took a knee as the national anthem began to play. The players wore shirts with the words "Black Lives Matter" emblazoned on the...

    Former NFL coach Mike Ditka had a lot to say about the NFL players who plan to take a knee during the national anthem. He simply doesn’t care for it and he suggests anyone who’s taking a knee for the national anthem may as well get out of the country. But don’t listen to me. Take it from the man himself as quoted by TMZ: “If you can’t respect our national anthem, get the hell out of the country. That’s the way I feel. Of course, I’m old fashioned, so I’m only going to say what I feel. You don’t...
