    Megan Rapinoe – a “woke” professional soccer player who’s made headlines for her far-left activism and anti-Donald Trump stunts – appeared to mock Asians in old posts on Twitter, writing “u look asian with those closed eyes.” Rapinoe shared the following tweet on May 19th, 2011, prefacing her post by tagging the user “tasha_kai00.” While the account has since been deleted, archives reveal the account belonged to professional soccer player Natasha Kai, who is of Hawaiian, Chinese, Filipino and Caucasian heritage. The unearthed post follows years of ardent left-wing and anti-Donald Trump activism from the soccer player, who notoriously feuded...

    Jessamyn Stanley is a yoga instructor and “body activist.” Jessamyn is making headlines for some reason after blaming white supremacy for polluting yoga. Seriously. This happened. PEOPLE reported: Jessamyn Stanley needs you to know what yoga is really about – and it’s not the poses. In her new book Yoke: My Yoga of Self-Acceptance, the yoga instructor and body activist shares reflective personal essays that touch upon everything from racism to the cultural appropriation of American yoga, from consumerism to cannabis. And while the timing couldn’t be better considering the current cultural climate, the idea for the book came to...

    In February, we reported that Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had stopped playing the national anthem before his team’s games. This has since come back to haunt Cuban, as Texas Republicans have fired back by hitting him right where it hurts – his wallet. Cuban never publicized not playing the national anthem. The news of what he was doing only broke at the time because other teams noticed on their own that “The Star Spangled Banner” never played. Cuban tried to defend himself at the time in a statement to NPR:

    Jason Whitlock didn’t hold back when discussing woke athletes embracing China. The sports journalist said LeBron James, Colin Kaepernick, and even Serena Williams embrace “Anti-American Sentiment.” As a guest on “The Truth With Lisa Boothe,” Whitlock launched into a brutal assessment at how Nike athletes are turning their backs on America in a cash grab. LeBron will not be happy with this criticism.

    Eddie died leading his battalion in a desperate fight to relieve (Major) Whittlesey’s beleaguered men two. He was commanding a company of Three Hundred Seventy infantry from Camp Upton, when the battle began. For four days and four nights, his company was part of the command which was trying to get to Whittlesey. On the morning of the day that relief was effected, Eddie was so worn out he could scarcely move. Some of his brother officers noticed him sitting on a stump, with a cup of coffee in front of him. Two or three times, they say, he tried...

    Today’s Europa League final featured two contrasting teams: Manchester United and Villareal. Man U, which represents the red half of a city of about half a million, has won everything there is to win in soccer, and most things multiple times. Villareal, known for some reason as the Yellow Submarine, represents a Spanish city of around 50,000. Until today, it had never won anything. This year, Man U finished second in the English Premier League. Villareal, which played three EPL castoffs today, finished seventh in La Liga. And here’s one more contrast. Just before the opening whistle, the Man U...

This is what it looks like these days:Zooming in on the right field corner:I have no idea why baseball executives think it is appropriate to celebrate an armed robber, drug addict, petty criminal, arrest resister and sometime porn performer, or why they think this is what their fans want to see. But I have no intention of patronizing a business that does something this clueless.

    The NCAA was threatening states that if they didn’t allow men to compete in women’s sports then they would pull tournaments from those states. The entire issue even caused a once-loved Republican governor, Kristi Noem, to lose her support within the party after she bent the knee and refused to sign a bill banning biological men from declaring themselves women and signing up to compete against them out of fear of losing the revenue.As it turns out, the NCAA was totally bluffing and picked three states for their tournaments to happen in. According to Breitbart, the NCAA has announced that...

Tide fans discuss who might be worthy of following Saban and how far the Crimson Tide might fall when it happens. Instead of those conjectures, this post is about what Nick Saban has already done.
