Being a Cleveland sports fan is normally a recipe for the acquiring of intestinal fortitude through acute suffering. Well, the Indians have just clinched the American League Championship. They are going to the World Series for the first time since 1997. The last time they won the whole shebang was 1948. What impresses me about this particular […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are encouraged by new Senate polls in four states.  They also find some satisfaction in reports that NFL ratings are way down this season.  And they discuss the public spat by Fox News hosts Megyn Kelly and Sean Hannity over their very different coverage of Donald Trump in 2016.

Do you have any idea how ridiculous you appear when you put on a SJW uniform rather than the one that is connected to your paycheck? In the modern era you are paid enormous sums for your ability to run, pass, kick, hit the ball, etc. Or, your ability to support those that possess these […]

Update Again: Because putting this together has been last-minute and very messy, we didn’t get draft off before the first game of the season. For that, I apologize. However, this also means we can extend the entry deadline and draft a few more days! I’ll schedule draft for noon (Eastern Time) Saturday and anybody can join […]

The Colin Kaepernick story is only interesting to me insofar as it illustrates an undeniable reality about our media. In this case, our sports media. Earlier today, I noticed that all of the top trending topics on Facebook were names of people who had been asked about Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the national anthem. […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome new polls in Pennsylvania and Ohio showing the GOP looking better in both Senate races.  They also slam Sec. of State John Kerry for saying he wishes the media wouldn’t cover terrorist attacks so much because then people might not know about them.  And they react to former Texas Gov. Rick Perry signing on to do “Dancing with the Stars.”

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America enjoy watching DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile wonder what the problem is with Hillary Clinton packing her private meeting schedule with Clinton Foundation donors  and they squirm as Anthony Weiner includes a picture of his small child in his latest sexting scandal.  They also shudder as foreign hackers have hacked the voting systems in two U.S. states.  And they offer their blunt assessment of San Francisco 49’ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand for the national anthem and his reasons for doing so.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome a new Gallup poll showing 80 percent of Americans think voters should be required to present a photo ID in order to vote.  They also laugh as Donald Trump now says that after deporting hardcore criminal illegal immigrants, most of his immigration enforcement policy would look like what we saw from George W. Bush and Barack Obama.  And we discuss the USA Today story blowing major holes in the story offered by Brazilian police in the saga of the U.S. swimmers.

Reds relief pitcher Michael Lorenzen is a young man of faith. When he made the ballclub this spring he asked for uniform number 21 because of his admiration for the late Roberto Clemente, a man who lost his life caring for strangers away from the diamond. Earlier this week, Lorenzen lost his father. After a […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss only bad news, starting with the violent and destructive protests in Milwaukee following the police shooting of a young black man in what seems to be fairly simple case.  They also rip Sen. Claire McCaskill for suggesting Trump is actually responsible in part for the rise of ISIS.  And we discuss the brutal robbery of four U.S. Olympians in Rio as more proof the city was a terrible choice to host the games.

Real football can’t be helped. If we started a football league that returned to leather helmets and no pads, or imposed a player weight limit of a thousand pounds, lawyers would nip it in the bud.  But soccer could be saved with one simple rule: If you get caught faking injury, you’re banned.

Greg Corombos of Radio America and Ian Tuttle of National Review welcome news that the FBI and a well-respected federal prosecutor in New York are actively investigating the Clinton Foundation.  They also groan as fears grow that Donald Trump will hurt Republicans in Senate, House and state races.  And they sigh as Trump blows another chance to score points against the Obama-Clinton legacy and makes himself look ridiculous in the process.  Finally, they close on a high note by celebrating the achievement of the American athletes at the Olympic Games.

Brazil Nuts: Anti-Semitism at the Summer Olympics

Three nights into the Summer Olympic games in Brazil, there have been two inexcusable acts of anti-Semitism towards members of the Israeli team. I would call these acts “high-profile” but, since the media is largely ignoring these international incidents, very few even know the stories. The first incident happened on Friday, the night of the Opening Ceremonies. As the Jewish Journal reported:
