Super Bowl Picks!

Super Bowl Week is here! Bucs vs Chiefs, and I am giving you my pick for the winner!

Published

on

It’s that time of year again, and the Super Bowl is coming to town! The GOAT himself, Tom Brady, is leading his Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and about to appear in his record 10th Super Bowl, with a record of 6-3 in the last 9. He’s facing the redoubtable Patrick Mahomes and his Kansas City Chiefs, the defending Super Bowl champions.

The greatest of all time faces the greatest player now. It’s gonna be EPIC!

It’s gonna be CLOSE.

These are two very evenly matched teams. On paper, the Chiefs are favored. They have won 26 of their last 27 games. Mahomes is an UNREAL talent! His supporting cast are pretty crazy great, too; especially Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. Their defense is other worldly great! And their coach, Andy Reid, is one of the best in the business, and a man fine man of honor to boot.

But he’s facing the GOAT. He’s facing a man who just WINS!

Again. And again. And again. And yet again.

Did I mention again?

And Brady’s supporting cast is pretty great, too. Antonio Brown, the best receiver of the past 10 years. Rob Gronkowski, the best tight-end of all time. And Leonard Fournette, a man with something to prove   Bruce Arians is a great coach, too, and he’s a fine example of a man.

So who’s gonna win?

Logic tells me it will be the Chiefs. And I am a pretty logical guy.

But you can never count out Brady. And I wouldn’t want to bet against him!

So I am picking the BUCS! Final score, 28-24.

Brady for the win.

If I am wrong, I’ll still be happy, because I really respect Mahomes, Reid and the Chiefs.

Where Do You Draw the Line on Medically Enhanced Competitors?

What are the limits to someone incurring surgeries to perform better or gain favor from contest judges

Published

on

In Denmark this month, a transsexual woman was awarded the top prize, “Miss Universe Denmark.” Despite this otherwise attractive individual’s talent, a whole set of questions ought to be considered.

What is the mission and value statement of the agencies and the respective countries that hold such competitions? In the case of a female beauty contest, is it not to reward those of the feminine gender who have shown not merely beauty, but brilliance, public service, poise, and appropriate demeanor?

Procedures for All Occasions

If somebody undergoes one or more specific medical procedures that enable them to enter the contest, does that change the overall mission? If not, what are the limits to someone incurring surgeries to gain greater favor from contest judges and the viewing public?

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: America No More…

What about breast enhancement? What about dental implants to create a perfect smile? What about rhinoplasty to make a rather plain nose more attractive? What about any of the other procedures widely available today that a contestant could undertake to increase the chances of victory?

If someone is undergoing a sex change operation, and we have to assume that other enhancements were involved in the total transformation, why not open up the ranks of such contests to anybody anywhere who has any kind of procedure?

Spring Forward, Fall Back

When Oscar Pistorius, the South African sprinter who runs on springs, was competing in national and international competitions, many people felt it not fair to allow this individual to compete. He lost his feet at 11 months due to a congenital defect, and we all sympathize. However, shouldn’t he be competing against others who have similar mechanical enhancements?

What if a manufacturer is able to create springs in place of feet, enabling average sprinters to proceed noticeably faster than the best sprinters in the world? Where does that leave-footed sprinters? Should they remove their feet? Absurd, you say? Well, then, should they just give up?

Many years ago, Tiger Woods underwent an operation to improve his vision. He did not have poor vision at the time. He had 20/20 vision. He had it altered to make his vision even stronger than 20/20. Was that acceptable? The Professional Golfers Association didn’t seem perturbed. Have other golfers undergone the same procedure? Have other athletes undergone other procedures to enhance their ability to compete?

The Fine Line

When and where do you draw the line? Performance-enhancing drugs have been outlawed in professional weightlifting, Olympic weightlifting, and other such contests. This is also true in all other major sporting events. On occasion, however, the tests are not conclusive. Some cheaters sneak by. And some win contests as a result of performance-enhancing substances that went undetectable.

Suppose people can alter their bodies via surgery, substances consumed, or any other means that will enhance their ability to compete. How are others who have not had such advantages and do not finish in the winner’s circle supposed to feel? Have they not been denied a fair and equal opportunity to compete?

In virtually every instance, competitors in such national and international events have devoted long hours and many years of their lives to hone and refine their capabilities, techniques, and approaches to their respective endeavors.

Speak Up Before the Mass Absurdity

Riley Gaines is a female swimmer who has been outspoken about the dangers of having biological females competing against who was originally a biological male such as NCAA champion Lia Thomas. And then there are a host of locker room issues with which to grapple. Gaines is as articulate a spokesperson for this topic as you’ll ever encounter. Few others have the guts to speak up as she has. My guess is that a large “silent majority” feels the same way as she does.

What’s needed now, more than ever, is for legions of female athletes to make themselves heard. It is not enough to simply say, “I did my best, it was an unfair advantage for the winner, but I guess I’ll just move on.” A generation of young female athletes is waiting in the wings.

Even when females do speak up, as Martina Navratilova has done, you have others on the Left, such as the perpetually annoying Megan Rapinoe, who voice opinions against their own gender. Unfortunately, one cranky Megan Rapinoe, supported thoroughly by the Leftist media, drowns out the voices of many opposers. It shouldn’t be that way, but it is.

Stand Up and Walk Out

Pundits have suggested that female athletes can regain control of their respective sports via mass walkouts. In other words, do not compete when a competitor who has gone through puberty as a male is wreaking havoc at female events.

Suppose female swimmers take their places on the blocks and as the horn sounds to start the race, they turn and simply leave the pool area. Let Lia Thomas win by default and finish alone in the pool. That would make a great news story that would be impossible to ignore.

Really, a couple of mass walkouts should do it.

Game Face: What Does a Female Athlete Look Like?

“For women to become strong is a deep part of the revolution.” Gloria Steinem

Published

on

The endorsements below are for Jane Gottesman’s 2001 book, Game Face: What Does a Female Athlete Look Like? It was published before the ‘woke’ transgender stampede. Keep in mind that not a single house Democrat voted to protect the sanctity of sports for biological women.

Before the Stampede

“Whether you’re from the generation of drum majorettes or Title IX, the athletes of Game Face will inspire you. For women to become strong is a deep part of the revolution.”
—Gloria Steinem

“A powerful image seizes a moment in time and yet tells a story of a lifetime. There is no better proof of this then Jane Gottesman’s Game Face. Game Face captures the essence of being a female athlete. And it also does much more. It shows that sport unites us all because it belongs to us all.”
—Anita L. DeFrantz, International Olympic Committee First Vice President

“Game Face is a first. Together these photographs give a face to the critical mass of people who have made women’s sports part of the popular landscape.”
—Billie Jean King

“Game Face is a tribute to the beauty of competition, to the dedication, skill and enthusiasm female athletes are finally encouraged to display. Every one of these women is a winner and so is each of the photographs.”
—Dick Schaap, ABC Sports

“Inspiring! Game Face is proof that a picture is worth a thousand words. This book looks at women’s sports from a refreshing perspective. Talk about feeling empowered—I’ve got my Game Face on!”
—Robin Roberts, ESPN anchor

How About Today?

Hmmm… what do you say we interview these endorsers today and catch them in their own hypocrisy?
