Nobody Cares about Sports!

When Nazem Kadri (of the Maple Leafs) ripped off Joe Thornton’s beard the other night I was like WTF! and didn't know where to ''discuss'' it, so since there isn't a Nobody Cares here (I don't think), here it is.

For those of you unfamiliar:

Supposed to save those long "civil war" beards for the play-offs anyways. I wonder if Joe shaves it back to normal length after this incident.

I personally don't mind either way. If he had pulled a player's hair, people would have called him a ''sissy'', but because it's a beard, people think he is the one who should have known better.

I believe that if you're gonna fight, then all is permitted. It's either worth it or it isn't. But in sports, give me a break. If I want to see a real fight, I'll watch boxing or the UFC. It always looks a little silly to me. Punching in the air, dancing while holding each-other's jerseys, hugging oh-excuse-me I mean wrestling...

Last weekend at the Siberian Indoor Championships, a Russian national track-and-field competition, the unexpected arrival of drug testers led to a bit of an exodus as over 30 athletes suddenly withdrew from the competition due to "illness".

IS TENNIS PLAYER TENNYS SANDGREN AMERICA’S FIRST ALT-RIGHT ATHLETE?
Quote:
According to him, no. According to his Twitter feed...

For the first time since 2010, an American man has made to the Australian Open quarterfinals. The aptly named Tennys Sandgren is the last American standing in the men’s singles division, an achievement that is ever-so-slightly tainted by the fact that he’s probably a huge Trump supporter — and not the craven “Trump is terrible but I voted for him anyway because I am a Republican” kind, but the out-and-proud MAGA hat-wearing, “Pizzagate is real” kind.

Cleveland Indians finally ditching the Indian-head logo for good

Quote:
Beginning in 2019, the team's jerseys will no longer feature the Native American caricature, which has been widely characterized as offensive and racist. The change was announced Monday by Major League Baseball.

The Indians had already been shifting away from using the symbol. The team adopted a "C" as its main logo in recent years.

The Chief Wahoo symbol, however, was still stitched onto their uniforms.

"Over the past year, we encouraged dialogue with the Indians organization about the club's use of the Chief Wahoo logo," MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement.

"During our constructive conversations, Paul Dolan made clear that there are fans who have a longstanding attachment to the logo and its place in the history of the team.

Nonetheless, the club ultimately agreed with my position that the logo is no longer appropriate for on-field use in Major League Baseball, and I appreciate Mr. Dolan's acknowledgement that removing it from the on-field uniform by the start of the 2019 season is the right course."

The logo won't be available on any gear available for purchase online at Major League Baseball's store after 2019. But fans will still be able to buy it at souvenir shops in the stadium and at select retailers.

The decision to wait until 2019 was meant to give fans and the team time to transition, according to a source familiar with the change.

The source added that the selective sale of Chief Wahoo gear is being made in order to keep other parties from profiting from the logo. If MLB and the Indians stopped selling the logo, they could risk losing the trademark rights.
The argument at the end is that if they don't continue to offer at least something with that logo on it for sale, they forfeit the trademark, which will lead to a highly lucrative "black market" of fake Indians gear with the offensive logo on it that they would have no ability or right to crack down on.

Roger Federer was truly amazing in Australian Open Final ... And what an honour ... winning 20 grand slams in the career.
But really "ripping off the beard" is extreme sports!

Ugh. Sports. This is a bitter year. I've not had much faith in my Vikings since the 1998 NFC Conference loss. I warned my fellow fans to not be too confident. It didn't really work. They were worked up.

It's really harsh hosting the Super Bowl and not having your team be one there. It isn't a common thing, but damn if they shouldn't have been there this year.

I don't even know who to root for. I have to hate the Patriots on principle, but the Eagles aren't exactly exuding fandom in me. Fans who throw beer cans at fans of their rivals? Fuck them.

Austin Dillon in the #3 car wins the Daytona 500, 20 years after Dale Earnhardt's win on the same team and number.

I'm following three drivers this year - two of them (Keselowski and Elliot) took each other out of the race in an accident near the end of the second stage; but Wallace managed to avoid all the wrecks in this race and ended up finishing 2nd, which is not bad.

Ugh.

Braves reporter Kelsey Wingert has broken eye socket after being hit by foul ball
Quote:
Braves sideline reporter Kelsey Wingert suffered a fractured eye socket after being hit by a line drive during Friday night's game, she said on Twitter early Saturday.

Wingert, who works for Fox Sports South, was stationed near the dugout when she was hit by a foul ball in the seventh inning. She was transported to a local hospital and underwent a CAT scan, but tweeted shortly before 2 a.m. Saturday that she was back home and recovering.
She seems to be taking it well, for anyone who can look at the tweet from her (at the article link).

Me either! I'm vaguely familiar with the rule, but I've never seen it in action.

One of the reasons I do not watch MLB games on a regular basis (also, THEY ARE BORING).

Remember this?



Well...

Ex-NFL running back Ricky Williams has launched a new marijuana brand
Quote:
Ricky Williams, former NFL running back who now advocates for the use of marijuana, was once suspended for an entire season and failed drug tests multiple times while using the drug during his 11-year career.

He is now getting into the marijuana business full-time.

On Tuesday, he announced he is launching Real Wellness by Ricky Williams, a "cannabis-based wellness brand created for the health-conscious cannabis consumer," according to a news release.

Williams will be partnering with OutCo, which according to the release is Southern California’s "largest, licensed, integrated cannabis company."
Well, love what you do.
