Dungy, Religion, and Humanity

Tony Dungy was asked a football question. Tony Dungy gave a religiously biased answer. And that’s America. “I wouldn’t have taken him. Not because I don’t believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn’t want to deal with all of it… It’s not going to be totally smooth…things will happen.” The…

Open Letter To DeAndre Yedlin

Dear Yo Sup Howdy Hey DeAndre (my name’s André wow what a coincidence let’s be friends anyway read this), Sorry, I’m not used to writing letters — especially to people I don’t know.

WHAT. JUST. HAPPENED.

I still don’t know what I watched today. Ever since the final whistle I’ve been struggling to come up with an adequate sports equivalent. It’s been hours, I still don’t have one, and my brain now hates me. This just doesn’t happen. I mean, this is the World Cup. This is the semifinals. Hell, THIS…
