It aint about brains son, its about HEART
Not sure if you’re even reading these responses or have access to them tonight. But just wanted to say thank you for doing what you’ve done and standing up to these shitheel corporate fascist fuckheads. You’ve fought the good fight for something that was worth standing up for. You did what you could. This place will…
Given today’s news, I wanted to voice my appreciation for this post that is decidedly not about sports.
lolololol yeah sure that's what it is, I don't know what I was thinking
I actually think he would have been a perfect fit for the Knicks, because he isn’t a very good basketball player.

She’s definitely in the running for GOAT, so there is certainly a risk of such rules being put into place.
It’s an immensely stupid response that keeps showing up, which is why I was wondering what others thought might happen this time. White people get very threatened when an athlete of color is just dominating the living shit out of their sport, but I don’t know any gymnastics fans (of any color) who have anything but…
“5 people fired”
Honestly, yeah, that’s why I was wondering.
You could say Gibson for baseball too.
I would put Lewis Hamilton and the Williams sisters on that list too.
It’s nice when your club has the resources of an entire country behind it.
I’ll always love that the people who claim there’s noting wrong with being a nationalist are the same who will say that Nazis were socialists because it’s in the name, and without a shred of irony.
