One man out.

Moron of the day award goes to the unnamed NFL player personnel assistant who said about Michael Sam’s coming out. “It’d chemically imbalance an NFL locker room and meeting room.” Right. Like a Missouri team that was 5-7 in 2012 was “chemically imbalanced” in 2013 enough to finish the year 10-2.

Good for Michael Sam. Of course must be honest. Personally probably have less prejudice against a gay player than a player from the SEC.

More kudos. To Michael Sam’s Missouri teammates. Sounds like they were supportive but whatever their feelings, none of them let anything slip to the media. #teamwork

In honor of #MichaelSam will an Olympic male figure skater come out as straight?

Russian speedskater Olga Graf won a bronze in the 3000 metres. Exhausted, hot and excited after her race, she unzipped her suit down to her waist – forgetting she didn’t have anything on underneath. Graf quickly rezipped the suit before she completely flashed the crowd. But have to think ratings may go up for her next race.

Another Gold for the US in slopeside. It’s sort of like the World Cup, where most Americans will decide to care about the sport for a millesecond. Except that this time we are winning.

Nothing against team ice skating. But can someone explain to me how it serves any purpose at all other than increasing Olympic television ratings?

Oklahoma State basketball star Marcus Smart shoved a fan courtside who allegedly called him a racial slur. Smart, 19, has had off court issues and probably needs at least some anger management counseling. But he’s a teenager. Thinking a middle aged white guy should know better. Just because we have free speech doesn’t mean you have to be an a**hole.

Nice to know the US doesn’t have a monopoly on hypocrisy. Mark Harper, British immigration minister, was behind a “go home’ campaign for illegal immigrants last year. He resigned after he allegedly just learned his housekeeper didn’t have papers to be in the country.

V.P. Joe Biden recently compared La Guardia airport to what one might find β€œin a third world country.” Prompting demands for an apology – from third world countries.

When your first plane pulls in 10 minutes early, you are one of first people off, walk quickly without a stop to your connecting flight and boarding is almost finished, United just MIGHT be over optimistic on their minimum connecting time. #notsofriendly

    30 NFL GMs will say they don’t care that Michael Sam is gay, and 30 NFL GMs will find a reason not to draft him. Either that, or he will be an early training camp cut and will end up playing in Canada or Europe. i

  2. Marc Ragovin, I don’t think so. Think there are at least half a dozen teams at least he might end up on – Seahawks, Saints, Niners, Houston, Patriots, Green Bay…. But we will see.

    A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said.

    What can you possibly add to this?

  4. Ben, posted it on facebook an hour ago. I think this is the gold medal for disproving that we can never take pleasure in the deaths of others. πŸ™‚ Thanks.
