« Deciding Between Too Much and Not Enough | Main | Media Still Giving Mass Shooters What They Want »

July 24, 2012



Sports has become like the WWE. It is about drama and entertainment. It doesnt help that most pro athletes are narcissistic and immature.
I cannot stand espn with its over hype of the nba. When the Detroit tigers beat swept the yankees all I saw was speculation on A rod.

Unfortunately, it will never get better only worse.

Thank you! I've reached the same conclusion about ESPN a while back.
In my view, ESPN talking-heads are terminal adolescents who sensationalize their favorite teams and athletes and over-focus on the personal and theatrical at the expense of sports.
Other than the ex-athletes, the rest are just failed journalists. Notice how the non-ex-athletes among them love to remind everyone that they were English majors in college.
Funny they should end-up as dopey sports-media personalities.

We all know now , why ESPN crammed the SEC down our throats, because they own the SEC network. I hate this channel they have destroyed sports in this country. If I was Tim Tebow I would sue the socks off of this network. They are nothing but another arm of the liberal media pretending to be a sports network. One last thought if they are sooooo upset about violence against women in the NFL why don't they stop taking advertising during the NFL games they show? Because llibs are greedy liars! Do as they want stop watching all football and see how fast these money hungry libs change their tone.

Hey Keith,
If liberals are so greedy, then why have they helped enact some of these laws since 1900? Marshall Plan, GI Bill, SBA, FTC, FDA, 40 hr work week, overtime pay, to name a few.


It's all garbage when it's all driven by advertising. You can't even watch a game anymore due to the LCD screens on the sidelines distracting every moment with advertising. I wish a pro athlete would stand up and say I'm not playing until they turn this crap off and let the people watch the game. I've stopped watching it all.

Blog Summary

  • No-holds-barred commentary (and humor) by Terry Mitchell on a variety of subjects such as current events, society and culture, politics, personal finance, technology, religion, health and well-being, sports, media issues, and trivia.

    His blog entries have been picked up or linked to by mainstream news services like Reuters, CNN, Wall Street Journal Online, USA Today, the Houston Chronicle, the Austin American-Statesman, the Dallas Morning News, the Chicago Sun Times, the Palm Beach Post,, Northwest Florida Daily News,, WWL-TV, WMUR, and WNBC. In addition to his blogging, he is currently a regular columnist for and American Chronicle. He has also written over 100 feature-length articles that have appeared on numerous Web sites.

    In this blog, Terry will never miss an opportunity to assail political correctness or take pot shots at the conventional foolishness.

    In this age of information overload, Terry knows that most people don't have time to read long, rambling blog entries. Therefore, he serves up most of his posts on this blog in small, bite-size portions. You'll appreciate his cut-to-the-chase writing style that gets straight to the point without the unnecessary and boring lead-ins.

    Also, Terry makes following promises in regard to this blog that very few bloggers will make:

    1) Posts which are always family-friendly and free of profanity and vulgarity (despite this fact, this blog is never boring and never shies away from controversy).

    2) A reasonable effort to assure proper spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, and sentence structure.

    Readers are free to comment, both pro and con, on any post. However, any comments that include profanity or name-calling will be promptly deleted. One who cannot defend his position on a given issue without resorting to such tactics is, at best, too ignorant to adequately defend his position, and at worst, lacking a defensible position altogether.

    For Terry's biography (in his own words), see the "ABOUT" link on the left side of this page, just below his photo.
