Random Thoughts

I hear that 50 U S Senators are urging the NFL to abolish the Redskins nickname. The other half of the senate presumably enjoys their free suites at the Redskins games and would rather not jeopardize that perk.
My thought: They should most definitely cave in to the( politically correct) pressure and immediately change their name.........................................to the D C Redskins.

LeBron James was named all-NBA first team on 124 of 125 ballots. The lone exception was Chris Sheridan of sheridanhoops.com. An unrelated stat: it is estimated that one in every 125 people vote while drunk.

And a final goodbye to fiesty Don Zimmer. What a fine contributor to the game of baseball. Cripes, he's been around so long, 66 years I guess. I even remember him as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers when I was just a lil Hitboy. I read where he either coached, managed or was a teammate of 13% of the current Hall of Famers Quite a tribute in itself. Bye, Zim man, I will miss you.

Never, ever criticize someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes........for at that point they will be a mile away. And you'll have their shoes !

Also read where the NFL is going to place cameras in locker rooms and air a feed to fans at the stadium. Sounds like a great idea ! Until, of course, the crowd is shown a 380 lb. lineman with no pants

reminds me of the XFL where they had a skit with cameras in the cheerleaders dressing room. this is far less appealing.

I don't know.........I sorta don't get it. Seems like just a small handful of Indians are objecting. It's not used in a derogatory manner or if anything it used with honor and tribute.
Snyder should just change the namew to the Reds Kins.......wonder shat that would do, lol.
