USWNT is not the feeling-good story we have been told they are



Maybe I'm a party-pooper of nature and care. When I was a child, I heard the music from the glass car and then asked my father in the quarter.

"No," he said, "they play that music when they are out of ice cream". [19659002] If you never heard it there, it's an old one. Otherwise it's mine. But the risk of being convicted as a killjoy makes me defensive. "Our" team water, right? That is what counts! USA! USA!

It is a relentless insult: TV requires intelligent viewers to ignore what they see to believe only what they are told. A few seconds after the US team won the Women's World Cup on Sunday, Fox's leading analyst Aly Wagner, formerly the US World Cup, shook this:

"How they've lifted a nation! How they've raised a sex! It's something to see! … They've done so much more and against all odds! "Was it for our ears or our pancakes?

Against all odds? The United States was the overwhelming, incredible favorite.

They raised a sex? It was the Women's World Cup! Even Mike Francesa could carefully tip the winners would be a women's team.

They raised a nation? So how? Was Wagner unaware that this team was invited to beauty and shut down as many as would normally have encountered it naturally? Could Wagner have been unaware that "we" were represented by those who wear uniforms from US law while performing choreographed inequality and dislike of opponents?

Or was Wagner under the impression Americans could not be right from wrong and thus provided blind

In Sunday's 2-0 final over the Netherlands, let's examine "our" goals.

The second goal was scored in traffic by Rose Lavelle, who later waited for teammates to arrive at a group of celebrations ̵

1; a handsome and welcome scene considering what we had seen.

The first goal was Alex Morgan's work, which drew a penalty kick when he almost kicked his head. But just about Meg Megan Rapinoe was the recipient. She was awarded and made PK, which at this level was fully expected.

When her teammates rushed to her to celebrate a goal that did not belong to her alone, Rapinoe ran from them, at the bottom to stand alone while beating a very diva pose.

The team's captain began when Rapinoe drove half the field to show discontent self-esteem after her goal against Thailand did it, geez, 9-0, should have had a chat with Rapinoe, suggesting she is playing with a little more class.

But Rapinoe, a foul-mouthed stage hog who gave the national anthem her kiss-off in protest against President Tweet – as if it were her duty to use the US World Cup matches for that purpose – is the captain!

Little wonder the champions at Nike gave Colin Kaepernick the week to anoint Rapinoe's commercial face on the victorious American team.

As it did four years ago, just-drop-in media inspired reflection on how American girls will no w be inspired to play and excel in football.

But was, if not America's playing field, the last two championships came from Estonia? Girl football has been a major participating sport here for the past 30 years.

I encouraged my daughters for competitive, organized sports. They played tennis, field hockey, football and basketball.

But I'm no longer willing to issue female athletes pandering, back-slapping, flagging blindness than I have weakened the social state of our men's sports.

In 1973, Billie Jean King-Bobby Riggs tennis match was never designed or intended to be taken seriously. It started with a king who was brought into the Astrodome in a sedan that was owed by muscular, strong spring gliders.

And it was not taken seriously until later, when it was desired, revisionist media and filmmakers took it as the day of death calculation of emancipation

Jim Spence, an ABC exek who helped bring the event together, has spoken of hearing , reading and watching the King-Riggs match was given greater historical significance – when it didn't exist.

But whether it is 1973 or 2019, we are dependent on believing in what we are told, not what we saw, not what we see.

The US team did nothing to deepen the "sex" failed "against all odds" and since many Americans felt it was impossible to embrace Team USA, it did little to "lift the nation".

MLB knocks out in all or no territory

Considering that DH was intended to increase batted balls instead of adding strikes of AL edges w the chicken they beat, DH is now a place in the order it will turn out while swinging hard on Mr Manfred's Country Mile Meatballs who make pop-ups to mortar.

Twins 7, Rangers 4 in 8 2/2 innings Saturday: 23 strike, five from the DH point. Rays 2, Yankees 1 in 8½ Sunday: 27 strikeouts against nine pots. DH is six times, Tampa Bay's Nate Lowe four, Gary Sanchez twice.

Furthermore, to address the record number of home runs that are beaten without addressing the record number of strikeouts is to miss half of the story. Since striking homers have become easier, swinging for them has become the primary goal.

And if the balls are so "fixed" as they seem, such a marketing genius has significantly reduced The Game to HRs or strikeouts.

Worse, if the balls are made for maximum HR, to fix it, causing a sudden decrease in HR, it would be a steady uptake of MLB to the dirty contaminated and compromised product, so MLB may be stuck with its own mindless units.


Can't spoil the shameless, continued: Saturday's Red Sox-Tigers game, scheduled to start at 16:10, ended after midnight. The game ran a ridiculous 3:51 – not a delayed 4:07 rain delay!

Metsna no longer plays Saturday games in the afternoon, big TV market Sunday games are played at night and teams have holidays while uncle Rob Manfred explains that the children are MLB's main target priority.

Tuesday's All-Star Game put it on thick, with kids escorted players from dugouts. What does it cost?


If, for $ 330 million, Phillies & # 39; Bryce Harper does not give a rat's rectum, why would you?

Sunday against Metsna, Harper hit a high fly over the third baseline. After it was captured by Todd Frazier, thief, SNY cheated a video showing that Harper never left the plate. He just looked and looked, as though he regularly costs his team by not bothering to even go against the first, he still does not care.

"It's just awful," Keith Hernandez said.

But Harper has an excuse: He doesn't care. And he's not alone. Hardly. And big league bosses continue kicking the baseball's jar on the road to unnecessary destruction.
