Don’t Dare Take A Knee This Weekend (Or Ever). Don’t Let the Swedes Ruin Next Summer. Really Hope? Saturday is for Football.
After World War I ended, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 as Armistice Day. In 1918, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, a peace treaty was finally signed ending the “War of All Wars”. Unfortunately, the wars never ended and President Eisenhower signed a bill changing the name from Armistice Day to a more inclusive Veteran’s Day. A national holiday thanking and saluting all of those who have served and thoughts and prayers to all of those who fell. With today being Veteran’s Day, here’s hope that all of us salute and respect the flag – flown at a parade or presented by a Color Guard, you better not take a knee.
Italian National Team – wake up dammit. The thought of not having Italy at next summer’s World Cup is horrible. Yesterday, Sweden took a 1-0 win into Monday’s second leg. With the U.S.A. failing to qualify, the Italians give us some hope as we head into next summer.
Hope Solo and Sepp Blatter – a match made in heaven.
With the issues surrounding the National Football League, many people are restating that Saturday is for football. This statement definitely resonates today with many important games including Georgia – Auburn and Miami- Notre Dame. The NFL is a massive business with a lot of very smart people in their management ranks. They will figure it out but until then we can take in both types of ‘football’ on Saturdays – all morning, day and evening.
Have I mentioned that I dislike daylight savings time ending?
Adios, have a great weekend and a Funday Sunday!
