“Social” media, sports and hypocrisy…what’s wrong with THIS picture?

with one comment


Boston Bruins

A little late on this topic, I admit. I tried to write this last night (via my phone app), but no go. So…

It’s been 4 days since the Capitals won Game 7 of their 1st round series against the Bruins. Meaning it’s been 4 days since Joel Ward was subjected to such a vicious attack on his character (not to mention his color) on Twitter.

First–for the benefit of Boston sports fans–a history lesson, followed by the hypocrisy of it all.

The NEW backup for the Caps?

 

Does the name Willie O”Ree mean anything to you, Boston? Just in case it slipped your collective memories, I’ll refresh ’em for you:

Willie O’Ree, in 1958…April of that year, some 6 weeks before I showed up on this planet…was called up by the (wait for it) Boston Bruins!! In doing this, the NHL became integrated. Now, what happened next in Boston ties into the point I’m making.

In the mid ’70s, a federal judge there ordered that black schoolchildren were to be bussed into the neighborhoods of South Boston…lily-white South Boston, I might add. Needless to say, it didn’t go so well. I’m willing to bet, to this day there are still people there with racist attitudes over this.

Which leads me back to last week, and Twitter.

To think that the assholes responsible for cyber-assaulting Joel Ward could be the descendents of these South Boston racists of the mid-’70s…is not that far beyond the realm. Notice I said “could”, NOT “are”. Keep that in mind.

It’s just I find it ironically hypocritical, that the fan base of the team that intergrated the NHL chose to inject racism into a Stanley Cup playoff game. Now, I’m the first one to tell you not ALL Bruins fans are like these skinhead bozos…just as not all Redskins fans are drunken boozehounds. (Believe me, I saw enough of that back when my brother had season tix to the Skins.)

It’s hypocritical to claim the moral high ground when it’s your OWN fan base behaving like assholes. (Witness the idiot who mooned Bryce Harperat the plate Saturday night at Dodger Stadium when he got his 1st hit as a National.) Every team, whether it’s high school/college/pro, has them. And I was glad to see tweets from normal Boston fans who denounced those bums.

Chimera and Ward Celebrate

Thankfully I haven’t seen this type of shit go on as the 2nd round of the playoffs got underway on Saturday night at MSG. Still, it might take the Caps doing to the Rangers what the Bruins saw happen to them to set somebody off.

You never know. Anyway, if you want to find me across the social media universe, here are the other places I inhabit:

Crazy (football) day, you ask?

   Tim Tebow, a player on the Denver Broncos Amer...

Just when we were all settled down from the Peyton Manning press conference yesterday in Denver, it appears Pat Bowlen and John Elway made good on their guarantee to ship Tim Tebow‘s ass out of the Mile-High City.
To, the…J-E-T-S, JETS JETS JETS?? Who saw this one coming? If I’m Mark Sanchez, here’s what should be the first words out of his mouth:
“I’m not playing second fiddle to this fucking garbonze!!”*
(*old M*A*S*H reference. Google it…lol)
Anyway, here’s what I wanted to say. The betting pool is on as to who gets the opportunity to take Tebow’s ass out. (MY money’s on Mario Williams, now that he’s in Buffalo.)
My new hashtag on Twitter will say it all: #SnapTebowsLegsLikeAWishbone

Because, let’s face it. The offense this fucking skivosa runs is better suited to arena football than to the NFL. So I say let’s hurry up the process…lol
(And yes, the sickening image of Joe Theismann writhing on the ground @RFK after Lawrence Taylor snapped his leg is still fresh in my mind over 1/4 century later. Just so you know.)
Note, BTW, I said “betting pool” and not “bounty”. Keep that in mind, folks.

This’ll be so much fun for all of you to read on Twitter…LMAO

English: Drew Brees warming up in Wembley Stad...

Steve Czaban, who used to work at ESPN 980 in D.C. (before Dan Snyder fired him), is tweeting this:
“RT @czabe I’m 50x more pissed off the Saints are penny pinching Brees than I am about Pay4Slay. 10 teams ready to give Brees 20m per. Let us at him!”
You’re serious about this, Czabe? You want Drew Brees here:

Should I assume this would be if Peyton Manning does not wish to wear Burgundy and Gold?

image

I mean I have respect for you and all, Czabe, but…just what the hell are you smoking? There’s a reason that seal is laughing, you know.
You yourself have pointed out over the years how the “Prima Danna” has turned this once proud franchise into an obscenity. And you seriously believe the Redskins should take a stab at Drew Brees?
Yeah, rightimage

Before Redskins fans go all gaga on trying to bring Peyton Manning here to D.C., let me make the attempt to talk sense to you.
As much as the idea would appeal to me, it’s just NOT feasible. For starters, he’s coming off neck surgery.
One wrong move as he’s being sacked, and it’s bye-bye career. Is this what you want?
Second, he’s never run a West Coast offense. That alone is grounds not to do this.
But this IS Dan Snyder we’re talking about, right? Anything to continue running this once-proud franchise into the ground, no matter what the cost.
For God’s sake, DON’T DO THIS!!!
