Former Pitching Great Curt Schilling Says … 80-85% of Pro Athletes Are Conservative & Slams ESPN for Going Liberal LEFT
SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT BETTER FIGURE OUT WHO THEIR MARKET IS …
In an interview on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT, former Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling stated he believes that 80 to 85 percent of professional athletes are conservatives. Schilling, who in my opinion is being black-balled from the MLB HOF because of his right political leanings, went on to slam ESPN for their dishonesty and liberal lurch to the LEFT. Which can help explain why ESPN’s ratings have been in free-fall. Curt Schilling makes no pretense that he is a conservative and a Trump supporter. At some point not ESPN, but all of the networks that cover sports better figure out who their viewer is. Just a hint, its not the far left.
Schilling made the statement during an interview with Chris Stigall on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT, citing few athletes that expressed support for Hillary Clinton and are drawn to conservatism through the appreciation of hard work.
“Look around professional sports and look at how many athletes there are and look at how many have come out and spoke out in favor of Clinton or in favor of liberals. They are because it’s mainstream in the public eye to do that right now. All the rest are, for the most part, are conservative because you don’t come out and speak about stuff like that…It’s work ethic,” Schilling said. “To get where they go, to get where a professional athlete gets, you have to work your a** off your entire life. You understand and appreciate an incredibly hard day’s work that, hopefully, will pay off in the future.”
He addressed the end of his time working for ESPN, saying they were dishonest about the reason he was fired and defended comments he made while working there.
“What I care about is that they lie about it. ESPN fires me for, apparently, being intolerant because I was actually commenting around the fact men should use the men’s room and women should use women’s room. Apparently, that was enough, the straw that broke the camel’s back,” Schilling explained. “Then, they come out and act as if they are a tolerant group and they’ve gone full mental since then. They’ve gone way over the edge on the left, having a tribute to Obama after his last day in office, which gave me acid reflux.”
GOOD, I WOULD LIKE TO THINK THE POTUS HAS MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO …
Imagine that, President Donald Trump wants to do the job of the American people rather than mugging for the camera for ESPN’s NCAA tournament brackets. Trump will not fill out a, NCAA Tournament bracket like his predecessor did on a common basis. Honestly, other than doing late night comedy shows, filling out the brackets may have been the only thing that Obama seemed qualified to do as president. Obviously, we now have a serious individual in the White House who is looking to solve the problems of America’s economy and dealing with our enemies. The time for fun and games are over, that was the Obama administration, now we have real things to deal with and it’s adult, serious time in the White House.
After all, this would be the perfect thing for Obama, it only requires a pen …
It appears that President Trump is passing on March Madness. He will not continue his predecessor’s annual tradition of filling out an NCAA tournament bracket on ESPN.
The network reached out to Trump’s staff and invited the president to fill out a bracket on-camera, just as President Barack Obama had the past several years. The network recently received word that Trump has passed. An ESPN spokesman said in a statement: “We expressed our interest to the White House in continuing the presidential bracket. They have respectfully declined.”
White House spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in an email to The Washington Post: “We look forward to working with ESPN on another opportunity in the near future.” Neither the White House nor ESPN had any details on what other opportunities might lie down the road.
The news didn’t exactly come as a surprise to ESPN executives. They knew with a change of president, the annual feature might not continue. Obama hosted an ESPN crew each March and filled out brackets for both the men’s and women’s tournaments. Two of those brackets are now property of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.
ONE FOR THE THUMB …
The New England Patriots are once again Super Bowl Champions!!! New England QB Tom Brady lead the Patriots last night in the greatest come back victory in Super Bowl history. Down 25 points in the third quarter, 28-3, it looked all but over.At least that what Atlanta and their fans thought. Enter Tom Brady, the GOAT!!! The Patriots defeated the Falcons 34-28 in the first overtime game in Super Bowl history. The discussion is over, Tom Brady is the greatest quarter back of all time, end of story. Brady passed for a SB record 466 yards, a record 43 completions, a record 62 attempts and wins a record 4th Super Bowl MVP. Brady is like a fibe wine, he gets better with age.
The Patriots stand once again on top of the NFL pinnacle with their 5th Lombardi trophy and 2 in the last 3 years.
Brady led the Patriots back from deficits of 21-0 and 28-3 with a throw-early, throw-late approach as the Patriots roared back to win Super Bowl LI 34-28 in the first overtime game in Super Bowl history. Entering Sunday, no team had won the Super Bowl after trailing by more than 10 points.
Brady was named the game’s MVP. It was the fourth time — an NFL record — he had earned MVP honors, having won the award in 2001, 2003 and 2014.
“He’s the best ever,” Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said. “There’s no flinch in Tom.”
“They’re all special,” Brady said. “This is an incredible team. I’m just happy to be a part of it.”
Brady finished 43-for-62, the most attempts in Super Bowl history, for 466 yards and two touchdowns. His 466 yards passing are also a Super Bowl record, surpassing the 414 yards Kurt Warner had 17 years ago.

IN MEMORIAM : 2016
We sadly lost too many of those that we grew up with idolizing in sports, movies, music and entertainment in 2016. Honestly, I cannot remember a year that more people from my childhood were lost. From music icons like David Bowie, Prince, Glenn Frey and Merle Haggard, to sports giants like Muhammad Ali, Arnold Palmer and Mr. Hockey, Gordie Howe, to all too many actors, actresses and celebrities that we grew up with like Florence Henderson, Dan Haggerty, Carrie Fisher, Alan Thicke to the voice of baseball when I was a kid, Joe Garagiola . We lost former First lady Nancy Reagan and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. We lost the greatest female basketball coach Pat Summit. And we lost an American hero, John Glenn.
God bless all and may you rest in eternal peace …
Sadly we lost such Hollywood actors like Gene Wilder, Alan Rickman, Florence Henderson, Garry Shandling, Alan Thicke, Patty Duke, Garry Marshall (director, producer & actor), Kenny Baker (R2-D2), Robert Vaughn, Ron Glass, Margaret Whitton, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Ken Howard, George Kennedy, Carrie Fisher, Doris Roberts, Steven Hill, Abe Vigota, Debbie Reynolds and far too many more …

GO ARMY, BEAT NAVY … GO TRUMP, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!
Donald Trump is partaking in one of the nation’s most storied football rivalries, saluting U.S. troops at the annual Army-Navy game on Saturday as he prepares to enter the White House.
The future commander in chief attended the 117th game between the military academies at West Point and Annapolis, which is being held on relatively neutral ground in Baltimore. The M&T Bank scoreboard showed the president-elect late in the first quarter; he waived and drew cheers from the crowd, though not at the level of the noise generated by Army’s first-quarter touchdown.
The Black Knights are hoping to end a 14-year Navy win streak and took a 7-0 lead into the second quarter.
Trump tweeted on Saturday morning that he was going to the game “as a show of support for our Armed Forces.” He planned to spend the first half of the game in the box of David Urban, a West Point graduate and Republican adviser and the second half in the box of retired Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North, a graduate of Annapolis.
