Watching my news feed and spinning through other sites this morning. This has gotten to the point of no return for me! Unbelievable!

I just checked the Orioles Schedule and it shows them opening their season tonight in Boston.

After reading the other members post and have decided to just skip it. I do not need to see all the pageantry associated with the SJW crowd and the other alphabet movements.

We are die hard baseball traditionalists but that is over. To be honest my baseball addiction started to diminish when we relocated from VA to NC in 2017 and I had a hard time getting MASN TV.

When I couldn't see my orioles I got Sirius so I could listen to them at work but the writing was on the wall even then.

For now I am supporting the local minor league teams and the Rodeos here in North/South Dakota.

I just saw Fauci all decked out in his uniform/mask ensemble throw out the first pitch! I was embarrassed to be watching this small segment. I will now go flog myself with barbwire! Fuck the professional athletes who condone this shit!

You can flog yourself for making me look up the video. I was wondering how he would do. If for some reason, I ever had to do that, I would practice until I could throw a strike from the mound.

I thought I would check on the Cleveland Indians for their opening week schedule and I see that they open tonight in Cleveland against the KC Royals.

My nephew is an Indians fan so I keep up to date on their season so we can talk sports. There are a lot of problems in that household right now and this is his one outlet, so I will tolerate some of the BS for him.

While at the gym this morning, I saw the ticker tape along the bottom of the screen state that the Cleveland Indians are going to meet with Native Americans to discuss their name.

Way Way Way back in the day they were called the Napoleons, the Bluebirds, and the Cleveland Spiders.

I just learned that when the team was actually named the Spiders, the fans started the nickname of Indians because of a Native American ball player.

I’m watching Braves @ Mets on Peach Tree, so far no SJW stuff with the lone exception of “BLM” being on the pitchers mound.

I never thought I would say this, but I am done with professional sports. I will not watch, nor support any of them. I hope they all go bankrupt.

Drew Breeze in the new today - chucking/apologizes even more.

Bunch of pampered, overpaid entertainers - bitching about inequalities.

You know who the real professional athlete are ? Yep, military service members especially the Grunts.
