Just One Champion
Fifty-five years ago today, Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee. He was 39 years old.
Commentary will be watching the sleazeball get his due this afternoon. I love that the GOP will keep defending this crook. No moral high ground for today’s GOP.
This is all you need to know from this Chron headline today:
Texas comptroller rescinds claim that Harris County defunded constable
Math is math. One plus one equals two. What a lackey and a clown.
With all due respect to First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, there is only one national champion in NCAA Women’s Basketball. Just one champion. LSU Tigers. Just one champion.
Only LSU gets to be invited to the White House. When we go to the White House, I don’t want the Phillies to be there. Here is from an AP story:
WASHINGTON (AP) — First lady Jill Biden said Monday that she wants the defeated Iowa women’s basketball team to be invited to the White House in addition to the national title winner Louisiana State University. She watched LSU’s 102-85 victory over Iowa from the stands on Sunday night.
Biden, speaking at the Colorado state capital in Denver, praised Iowa’s sportsmanship and congratulated both teams on their performance.
“I know we’ll have the champions come to the White House, we always do. So, we hope LSU will come,” she said. “But, you know, I’m going to tell Joe I think Iowa should come, too, because they played such a good game.”
The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment about whether President Joe Biden would also extend a White House invite to Iowa — and whether it would be a joint visit with LSU or a separate engagement.
Following LSU’s victory, Tigers coach Kim Mulkey said she would go to the White House if the team was invited.
LSU star Angel Reese tweeted a link to a story on Jill Biden’s remarks on Monday. “ A JOKE,” she wrote, along with three rolling-on-floor-laughing emojis.
In her remarks, Biden also marveled at how far women’s sports in the U.S. have come since Title IX in 1972 gave women equal rights in sports at schools that receive federal funding.
“It was so exciting, wasn’t it,” the first lady said. “It was such a great game. I’m old enough that I remember when we got Title IX. We fought so hard, right? We fought so hard. And look at where women’s sports have come today.”
I don’t have a problem with what Angel Reese said.
This punishment is well deserved. See this:
ANAHEIM, Calif. — Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon has been suspended five games and fined an undisclosed amount following his altercation with an Oakland Athletics fan on Thursday.
Unless Rendon appeals, his suspension will begin on Monday night when the Angels open a road series vs. the Seattle Mariners. If he does appeal, his suspension will be postponed until the case is resolved.
The altercation came after Rendon went hitless in Thursday’s Opening Day loss. He left the Angels’ dugout on his way to the tunnel leading to the clubhouse when he stopped and confronted a fan sitting near the railing.
In a 12-second video posted on social media, Rendon grabs the fan by the shirt through the guardrails and accuses the fan of calling him a “b—-.” Rendon continues to challenge the fan as he denies the claim. Rendon then calls the fan a “motherf—er” and takes a swipe, which does not connect, as he lets go of the shirt and proceeds to leave the area.
Rendon said he couldn’t comment when asked about the altercation on Saturday.
Next year the Women’s Final Four will be held in Cleveland.
Next year the Men’s Final Four will be held in Phoenix.
