    Just another reason I hate “professional” sports

    If they aren’t whining about PC crap, they’re begging for public funds to build
    billion dollar stadiums* were they earn millions each, doing nothing of real worth
    They are the Lilies of the field

    Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
    Luke 12:27

    Pompous Preening Parasites the lot of them, Time for a good dusting of roundup

    TIGER, tiger, burning bright
    oh what waitress will you bag tonight?
    What immortal hand or eye
    Could frame thy fearful hosiery?

    The figures from the 2014 NFL Players Census are 67.98% black, just 27.66% white:

    Presumably they’ll keep shouting RACIST! till there are no more white players. That’s real diversity.

    I thank God every day my spouse has zero interest in professional “sports.” No national felon league, no baketballers, none of it. 🙂

    The CFL has had black quarterbacks for many years. No fuss about it, though, just an emphasis on how well – or not – the quarterbacks are doing.

      I think it was during the Junior hockey tournament, a game between Canada and the US, I noticed that there were three Negro players in the game, all wearing jerseys with maple leaves.
