  1. Kimbrel should come in just to get rid of Familia. If deGrom goes down, I'm confident Brodie will find a decent replacement.
  2. As Levi points out, it was, indeed satire. It was also sung by a black man. It was a MUCH different time. Does that make it right? Nah. But should such irrational (in my opinion) decisions be made based upon learning of it? I certainly don't think so. There have been some renditions of this song that have moved me nearly to tears. Specifically some of the live performances (which I saw on TV) during Yankees games. I think the Yankees ... and ESPECIALLY Phily, are overreacting. Out of fear. And that's sad to me.
  3. Here are the lyrics to the song, "That's Why ***** Were Born,": Someone had to pick the cotton Someone had to pick the corn Someone had to slave and be able to sing That's why ***** were born; Someone had to laugh at trouble Though he was tired and worn Had to be contented with any old thing That's why ***** were born; Sing, sing, sing when you're weary and Sing when you're blue Sing, sing, that's what you taught All the white folks to do; Someone had to fight the Devil Shout about Gabriel's Horn Someone had to stoke the train That would bring God's children to green pastures That's why ***** were born *** The censored word is "dark.ies." I am not trying to get around the word filter; I just think it's important context. MORE ON GENIUS
  4. Another statue bites the dust ... On Friday, the NHL's Philadelphia Flyers also announced its intent to distance themselves from Smith and her rendition of the song. "We have recently become aware that several songs performed by Kate Smith contain offensive lyrics that do not reflect our values as an organization," said the Flyers in a statement. "As we continue to look into this serious matter, we are removing Kate Smith's recording of 'God Bless America' from our library and covering up the statue that stands outside of our arena." What on earth would we gain for mass piety?
  5. As long as Wild Eyes is still their HC, I'll file rumors like this in my, "That's Cute," folder. Players will not be the Jets' problem.
  6. I'll post videos of all of his other dirty plays for you: The end. It was one play.
  7. My guess (strictly a guess) is that Gronk's lack of apology is more of a "Patriots culture" thing, than it is a "Gronk's a dick" thing. Apologizing = admitting you did something wrong. That's not the NE way, as seen from Mr. Kraft and down the chain. The hit was egregiously bad. I just can't label a person, or his career, based on one mishap (one of this magnitude, anyway).
