"She's a superstar at what she does, a great singer and actress and Alex is a superstar in baseball. Any advice coming from them, I'll listen to them."

Gary Sanchez credits dining with J-Rod (or is it A-Lo?) for breaking out of his slump. Seriously. I'm not kidding. He actually said this. And it makes sense. I can imagine J-Lo explaining the intense preparations she went through during the filming of Gigli and Anaconda, the sacrifices she made to achieve greatness. Gary had to be impressed.

On an unrelated note - and feel free to yell at me for going semi-political here - but I saw this Fox still shot this morning, and I can't get it out of my head.

Take a quick glance. This is Fox's version of Coney's Keys to the Game!

Before you start in on me, I'm not just ripping on Fox here. Both sides - many, many sides, in fact are at fault. Many, many, many sides. Many, many, many, many, many sides.

I don't want to get into politics again.

But I have to say, I don't understand "the Aztecs did it" argument.

The Aztecs also ripped the beating hearts out of human sacrifices, to appease their feathered serpent god. Are there people who really dig the Aztecs? Have people been putting up statues to them?

What am I missing here??

There's a lot of Mexicans and Mexican-Americans who look back fondly on the Aztecs and Mayans as the pinnacle of human civilization. They're all in La Raza and come out of the shadows around Cinco de Mayo and Halloween when a white person wears a costume they don't like. They don't get much air time because it's not as sexy for the news as the Confederacy. Take a trip to a liberal arts college whenever they hold anti-cultural appropriation rallies, you'll see em around.

I have a friend who thinks Aztecs were terrific. It's kind of silly as she views them as her ancestors even though her father is 100% white and her mother is more of Spanish descent than mesoamerican.

Tucker's making a valid point, it's just not as recognizable.

Anyways, Duque have you updated the total covers? I feel like the Yankees have been stuck on 156 for a couple of days now.

It's all my fault and none of you many sides get any, Goddammit!

If young Gary goes on a hot streak after talking with A-Rod, then somebody make sure he's getting down there every month.

In other news sure to ruffle a few feathers around here, we've got this:

So, I ask a genuinely innocent question about Aztecs, and get a racist screed about Mexican-Americans in street gangs.


I don't watch Tucker Carlson, but thanks for letting me know that even Aztecs are political these days, Leinstery. I will stick strictly to baseball from now on.

Tucker is an ASS - - and not only for bringing up Ass-techs...if he didn't have his little bow-tie and his mommy's frozen-food fortune, what good would he be?? Why can't he just go off and enjoy all his $$$$, and leave the rest of us alone?? LB (No J)

I haven't watched Carlson since he and Paul Begala had a show together, and Jon Stewart told them to stop, because they were hurting America.

Carlson and Begala (please note, a Democrat, I am making fun of both sides here!) then had Triumph, the Insult Dog on their show, and really begged him to say they were right and Stewart was wrong. I was never able to take either of them seriously after that.

Call me old-fashioned, but once you're begging a literal sock puppet for validation, you've lost any remaining authority you may have once had.

Back to BASEBALL!'s a sign, I tells ya!

You got some thin skin if you thought that was a racist screed. You asked a question why would he throw that in and I gave you an honest answer, which is there are people who look back fondly on the Aztecs. You don't know what la Raza is and I take it you've never had to deal with these militant college pukes. So why don't you look into things before calling someone a bigot?

I hope they have guards at Monticello and Mt. Vernon. They way the Left is headed, these great places will be burned to the ground and the bodies of Jefferson and Washington exhumed and desecrated. That there are people of good will on all sides of issues is now a quaint notion to be discarded. When people are not allowed to speak, there will be violence. Count on it.

Leinstery said...

That's certainly not out of the realm of possibility KD. Al Sharpton expressed his desire to remove the Jefferson memorial last weekend. There was a protest at the American Museum of American History in New York because Teddy Roosevelt is now considered an icon of white supremacy. Who decided that? The white supremacists? Nope, just some hyper-sensitive college douche bags. Basically anyone who had anything to do with anything before the civil rights act is now up for grabs. It won't end with Confederate monuments, but everyone that doesn't pass the morality test administered by a handful of militant left wing twats. That's probably why the Vladimir Lenin statue in Seattle is so well maintained.

Sorry to get all political, but this shit really annoys me. I love history and hate to see it destroyed and erased as if it never happened. I also know that these statues and monuments, which are beautiful and skillfully crafted, will no doubt be replaced by some god-awful postmodern (or conceptual - or performance) art sculpture that is a visual mess. It will probably be titled "Unity" and really have nothing to do with anything other than the artist's narcissism.

The President of The University of Virginia, the institution that Jefferson himself had founded, was recently denounced by faculty for quoting Jefferson. I am not making this up.

My friends, this country can not endure without respect and tolerance for all people, even people with hateful ideology. You wonder how we got Obama and Trump? Wonder no more. It's going to get uglier unless everyone sobers up. If we don't, I'll sadly go to my grave (wearing a Yankees cap, of course!) as this won't be my country anymore.

sorry about the politics but I was prodded.
