Giving the ratings disaster that has been the new woke version of NBA & MLB I have to think Roger Goddell is quaking in his woke boots at the thought of what will happen to the league that starting the all the kneeling when it returns to the field.
Bidenball™ is not apparently the game for the masses.
For about one day the NHL was the league of choice when nobody had knelt to BLM. That somebody thought the one thing hockey needed was to join the other lemmings in jumping off a cliff was amazing to me.
I have really been amazed at how easy it’s been to tune out sports. This is the real danger for these sports. The fan base had gotten used to life without them and when they decided to eschew Mr. Griffith’s advice about getting political it was remarkably easy to maintain that distance.
If you told me six months ago that I would not turn on the car radio with the Redsox playing or that the various Redsox apparel I own would not be worn by me this season I would not have believed you.
Side note when a co-worker who doesn’t know I gave up on baseball mentioned that the Yankees lost I found I still grinned. Odd isn’t it?
The only sports I’ve seen at all have been when I’ve been out to eat. I used to make it a point to sit where I could see the sets but I now make it a point to do the opposite. Nevertheless last week I was seated somewhere with a screen in front of me that had a WNBA game on and I saw something odd.
The bench area was very socially distant with a lot of spacing between seats, but when I player came off the court during a substitution all her teammates high fived her.
Doesn’t that defeat the entire purpose of this stuff?
