CAN NEVER TAKE AWAY HER SUPERPOWERS

You all know what happened

She is coming back after her pregnancy, post a life-threatening complication after developing a pulmonary embolism, a controversy about her compression ‘catsuit’ (custom-made by Nike), her decision to wear a tutu and the high stakes of the event.

To add insult to injury, she was fined $17,000.

And then, Mark Knight, Australian cartoonist, decided to rub salt in the wound!

I know what I think about her!

The 2018 US Open final between Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka will be remembered for all the wrong reasons

The match was guaranteed to make history no matter what.

Williams was gunning for her 24th Grand Slam tournament win, a number that would have tied the all-time record for the most Grand Slam singles tournament wins in history.

And Osaka was hoping to be the first Haitian-Japanese player in history to win a Grand Slam.

In the end, Osaka defeated Williams 6-2, 6-4, ensuring the latter – but her achievement was overshadowed by what happened in the match.

NIKE …. “🏈👟 Released its Commercial starring Colin Kaepernick …. Inspirational Sports-Related Stories 👟🏈 …. “!

COLIN KAEPERNICK

TRIUMPHANT RETURN

I must confess I’m not a football fan; I really don’t know much about the game; I really don’t care about it.

However, I do know a lot about Colin Kaepernick.

I respect the man and agree with the peaceful protest and the message that he’s trying to bring to the forefront by using the platform that he had when he was able to play football.

After being shunned for at least two seasons; after continued pressure from the NFL, after continued disparaging from the occupant of the Oval Office, Kap makes a triumphant return!

Take a look.

HOW DID THIS BEGIN?

In a 49ers’ final preseason game, backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided sit on the bench to protest racial inequality and police brutality for the national anthem.

~TAKING A  KNEE~

Former Seahawks player and Green Beret Nate Boyer who talked Kap into making the change. Boyer wrote an open letter to Kaepernick and it caused the two to meet up and discuss America and honoring the anthem.

“Soldiers take a knee in front of a fallen brother’s grave, you know, to show respect. When we’re on a patrol, you know, and we go into a security halt, we take a knee, and we pull security.”

GoldSwirl

It was US Army veteran, Nate Boyer, who suggested to Kaepernick to take a knee as a sign of respect

This is their inspiring story of what can happen when people with different perspectives decide to sit down, have a conversation, and hear each other out.

KapC3

Kaepernick was the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem before games in 2016 to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Critics accused the protest of disrespecting the US flag and military and Drumpf called for players who protested during the anthem to be fired.

Nike released a commercial starring Colin Kaepernick on Wednesday, September 5, following this week’s announcement of a partnership between the two that prompted boycott threats as well as criticism from Drumpf.

Nike and Kaepernick posted the commercial on Twitter and YouTube.

The ad, narrated by Kaepernick, showcases various inspirational sports-related stories, including amateur athletes such as a football-playing homecoming queen and an Ironman participant who lost 120 pounds and recovered from a brain tumor. Professional athletes, including Serena Williams, LeBron James, and the Seattle Seahawks’ Shaquem Griffin (whose left hand was amputated when he was young), are also featured.

Kaepernick narrates the ad, which features a wide range of athletes including inspirational amateurs, Serena Williams, and LeBron James.
Kaepernick is shown only in the closing seconds of the commercial, which does not feature the former NFL player in football gear.

Colin Kaepernick …. “🏈🏆🏈 Amnesty International’s Ambassador of Conscience Award …. Athlete and Activist 🏈🏆🏈 …. “!!

ATHLETE AND ACTIVIST COLIN KAEPERNICK RECEIVES AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL’S AMBASSADOR OF CONSCIENCE AWARD

The Ambassador of Conscience Award celebrates individuals and groups who have furthered the cause of human rights through acts of conscience, confronting injustice and using their talents to inspire others.

GoldSwirl

The USA is a country where people can freely disrespect the flag using it as a thong, underwear, condom, disposable plates, bras, napkins, etc. but people got a heart attack just because he kneeled down silently and that is so “disrespectful” to the flag.

Really?

Kneeling down is a form of respect and humbling yourself before someone.

Chino R. 

Facebook User

I fully agree with Chino and his statement.

KapC1

The award was officially presented at a ceremony in Amsterdam, Netherlands, on 21 April 2018, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the opening of Amnesty International’s national section in the country.

“The Ambassador of Conscience award celebrates the spirit of activism and exceptional courage, as embodied by Colin Kaepernick. He is an athlete who is now widely recognised for his activism because of his refusal to ignore or accept racial discrimination,” said Salil Shetty, Secretary General of Amnesty International.

KapC4

“Just like the Ambassadors of Conscience before him, Colin Kaepernick chooses to speak out and inspire others despite the professional and personal risks. When high profile people choose to take a stand for human rights, it emboldens many others in their struggles against injustice.

Colin Kaepernick’s commitment is all the more remarkable because of the alarming levels of vitriol it has attracted from those in power.”

“I would like to thank Amnesty International for the Ambassador of Conscience Award. But in truth, this is an award that I share with all of the countless people throughout the world combating the human rights violations of police officers, and their uses of oppressive and excessive force.

To quote Malcolm X, when he said that he, ‘will join in with anyone – I don’t care what color you are – as long as you want to change this miserable condition that exists on this earth,’ I am here to join with you all in this battle against police violence,” said Colin Kaepernick.

“While taking a knee is a physical display that challenges the merits of who is excluded from the notion of freedom, liberty, and justice for all, the protest is also rooted in a convergence of my moralistic beliefs, and my love for the people.”

Colin Kaepernick explained why he sacrificed his career in the NFL to stand against systemic racism as he received Amnesty International’s highest honor.

Super Bowl LII National Anthem Performance 🇺🇸 …. P!nk …. There was a Time when I got Chills 🇺🇸 …. “!!


PinkB

~~February 5, 2018~~ 

P!NK

I read somewhere that P!nk watched Whitney Houston’s performance of the national anthem.

It was a famous rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” at Super Bowl XXV in 1991.

Since then P!nk wanted to sing then anthem at the super bowl.

… and that she did!

There was a time when listening to this anthem gave me chills.

Not anymore.

The reason I post this today is because P!nk sang at the superbowl and killed it.

Enjoy!

GoldSwirl

P!nk took the grand stage at Super Bowl LII to sing the national anthem just before kickoff where she paid homage to her “idol,” Whitney Houston.

This Super Bowl holds a special significance to the Grammy-winning artist as she is a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan, having spent the lead-up to the game posting snaps of her children and family rooting for the team.

Pink Nails the National Anthem Before Super Bowl LII, Despite the Flu

Despite a well-publicized battle with the flu in the days before Super Bowl LII, Philadelphia-area native Pink positively nailed the National Anthem.

Clad in a satiny white outfit and with bright blonde hair, the three-time Grammy winner was true to her badass image, removing a throat lozenge just before she began singing (and setting off a torrest of Internet memes in the process).

She played loose with the song’s timing, occasionally hitting a note just inside the tempo set by the accompanying orchestra, but hit every note with ease, at times breaking up a note or toying with the phrasing, possibly in an effort to sidestep the challenges of singing with the flu, but her voice was strong and on-point and she had little trouble holding notes.

Keith Olbermann, #133 …. “💰 What Mike Pence’s Cynical Anthem Stunt Cost 💰 …. and the other Cabinet Members Too …. “!!

What’s the answer?

The plan had been for Vice President Mike Pence to attend the Indianapolis Colts game at which Peyton Manning’s number was to be retired, a gala celebration of the former Colts quarterback’s contributions to Pence’s home state.

The former governor of Indiana and his wife, wearing a Manning No. 18 jersey, left Lucas Oil Stadium after the national anthem, following instructions from Drumpf after a number of San Francisco 49ers players, as they usually do, took a knee during the anthem.

“I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled,” Drumpf posted on Twitter. “I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen.”

The first rule of blatant political stunts is not to let on that they are blatant political stunts.

Pence was acting not out of spontaneous patriotism but out of blind loyalty to a president who reduces everyone around him to a sleazy character on a reality TV show.

PENCE COSTLY, SEE THROUGH, SLEAZY POLITICAL STUNT

AMERICAN NATIONAL PAST TIME

Football is a family of team sports that involve, to varying degrees, kicking a ball with the foot to score a goal. Unqualified, the word football is understood to refer to whichever form of football is the most popular in the regional context in which the word appears.

~Wikipedia~

BLine

I don’t know anything about football. It really doesn’t impress me much.

There’s a bunch of tough guys, placing hands up a player’s behind, shouting numbers, running into each other ending up on a heap of male muscle, increased testosterone and frequent stops.

The only interesting thing nowadays is the #TakeAKnee protest. 

By now, all fans and non-fans know about Pence’s costly, fake trip to Indiana. The cost of this charade has been calculated.

Nothing much!

BLineP1BLine

It seems like we’ll never know exactly how much it cost taxpayers to have Mike Pence abruptly leave a football game Sunday between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers.

But conservative estimates say it was at least $200,000 – and that’s for the air travel alone.

CNN did a back-of-the-envelope calculation and figured the flight from Las Vegas (where Pence attended a memorial service for the victims of the mass shooting) to Indianapolis and then to Los Angeles for a previously scheduled political event cost at least $242,500. The cost of a flight straight from Las Vegas to Los Angeles would have been around $45,000.

Pittsburgh Penguins Just Became Second Fiddle to Drumpf

There’s a saying in Spanish … ‘plato de segunda mesa‘.

I’ve been looking for an accurate translation for it and ‘second fiddle‘ came  up. Another meaning ‘to be second-best‘.

I guess when the one chosen or entitled declines, then the one who accepts becomes the ‘second fiddle’.

The statement added:

“Any agreement or disagreement with a president’s politics, policies or agenda can be expressed in other ways. However, we very much respect the rights of other individuals and groups to express themselves as they see fit.”
