What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions

The Disparity In Class In America Summed Up In Two Pictures

America is a country capable of incredible acts of class, and is also capable of the exact opposite.

The Highlight: It was pure class the way the St. Louis Blues paid tribute to baseball icon and St. Louis legend Stan “The Man” Musial.

The Lowlight: The asswipes at PETA using the Manti Te’o situation to advance their idiotic agenda.

Here’s the saddest part. I will be the first to admit I’ve made my fair share of Manti Te’o jokes, but there’s two problems here. First, the longer this story plays out, it is morphing from odd through funny into pathetic, and it isn’t over yet. The second problem is PETA isn’t joking; they really think this is going to help their cause.

    i thought the tribute to Stan Musial was an example of all that is good about sports. St Louis doesn’t get enough credit for being such a solid sports town. Good people. Good organizations, all.


  2. I suddenly got this visual of Dubs walking into a PETA boardroom of hippied-out, long-haired, animal lovers, taking a quick look around to see if Pamela Anderson is present, then smacking the director of marketing around a few times to knock some sense into him.

      That could happen. And I’d smack that Baywatch hag, too.

    Blues did a very classy thing. PETA…not so much. Te’o…I’m convinced his “story” will never end.

    And…your comparision takes me back to a conversation I had the other day. Stan Musial lived out most of his life without the “advantages” of the Internet, of Social Media, etc. The discussion was whether or not we’ll ever have sports “heroes” again in this New World Disorder of non-stop communication and opinions. Everything about you is “out there” whether an athlete tries to keep things in-house or not. The Te’o situation is obviously a warped, extreme example…but while I don’t think it is a revolutionary concept to learn our sports heroes are in fact human beings…the digital revolution and 24/7/365 “knowledge” and “coverage” is going to redefine and refocus our views of athletes from this point forward. I don’t think we’ll look at anyone as a “hero” like a Stan Musial from here on.

      I’m not so sure you can blame this all on social media, or media in general. I think the gargantuan amount of media certainly makes these sort of revelations easier, and most assuredly speeds the spread of the story, but there still had to be an action to be spread. In other words, if you are going to do something stupid, it is going to be far harder to hide it than in the past.

        Agreed. I just see now those times when someone really doesn’t do anything stupid…but someone else “blows it up” anyway. That’s what I think we’ll see going forward. No one having a shot at getting through their career unscathed or unblemished…whether they really did something dumb or not.

    Love the Blues tribute to Musial. And the day we never hear from PETA again, will be a great day for mankind.
