The saying goes one bad apple doesn’t ruin the whole bunch. Jussie Smollett is in a heap of trouble. He has been arrested accused of filing a false police report. He accused MAGA supporters of a hate crime. I asked Green Bay Packers tight end Marcedes Lewis days before Smollett’s impending arrests his thoughts…
Words can not express the staggering losses felt during this unnerving time in America. Trump tweets threats for nuclear war with North Korea, divisions fester between sports fans whether NFL players have the right to kneel during the National Anthem, hurricane damage still poses major hurdles for Puerto Rico/Virgin Islands, the Las Vegas massacre done by a home grown terrorist inflicting more outrage about firearms and the NRA yet no real change seems to be down the line. A great musician Tom Petty died suddenly. America’s heart is broken in so many ways.
With so much heartache this is all I got. One of my favorite Tom Petty songs..
Donald Trump likes to play the hero to his cult followers who don’t seem to comprehend The Right To Peacefully Protest. Instead of focusing on Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands devastation from the Hurricanes or the cyber attacks hitting the United States or Russia Gate or nuclear war with N. Korea. Trump would rather hypnotize his racist followers with click bait of “disrespecting the Flag” by not standing during The National Anthem. Now the sports world is in after Don The Con went off on protesting athletes. Sportscaster Jim Gray and I discuss the true meaning of sports and more
Mark Burnett is one of the most prolific & successful creators of Reality TV Show hits. He has produced The Voice, Survivor, The Apprentice, Celebrity Apprentice and Shark Tank just to name a few. Besides his success in the reality genre, Burnett is also made a fortune in Christian Entertainment.
Mark Burnett brought Donald Trump into mainstream culture by hiring don the con for The Apprentice which later morphed into The Celebrity Apprentice. It was during their successful television venture that it became more important to craft and fine tune Trump’s image into a successful business man showcasing a false image to primarily American audiences. The dominant white male boss/father figure who can chose whether one stays or goes/fired or hired became an instant hit. Unfortunately, the consequences of making Donald Trump a TV star has and will have shocking results to our Democracy.
A few years ago, Las Vegas was hit with a decline in the economy. The boom went bust. Many thought that recovery was going to take a long time. With the recent success of mega fights like Mayweather vs McGregor and the 2020 NFL Raiders move to Vegas, fans who love sports entertainment won’t be disappointed.
The Raiders moving to Las Vegas guarantees more jobs because the move comes complete with a new stadium. The Vegas economic boom maybe back sooner than later. Real estate as well as season tickets are going to be a hot commodity. Here is Owner Mark Davis leaving lunch with Sportscaster Jim Gray.
After a century of being a popular sport in America, football is finally taking brain trauma/concussions seriously. When you think about being hit by a person weighing upwards of two hundred pounds whose sole purpose is to violently take you down with a tackle, it is logical that your head would experience significant trauma after multiple hits. The NFL under much pressure has pledged $100 million in concussion research. Promising to do research and actually making changes are two different things. Americans love their violent sports and little about the consequences until it is too late especially if there is significant money and fame to be made. But I digress, any one can suffer from a brain injury/concussion. In the video below I share my story and some of the harrowing symptoms that can happen to you or someone you love…
