He Blew It

Colin Kaepernick blew his big chance. His protest would have been more effective had he just not showed up for the game. Think about that, a stadium filled with loyal fans and the star quarterback doesn’t show up. Of course the team would put in their extra QB and the game would be played. The fans would be angry and he could have then made his point in after game interviews. Unfortunately for Colin, he didn’t use his head or maybe he was just afraid he would not get paid, or worse the team would have a legitimate reason to fire him.

Let’s say his failure to show didn’t matter to fans, and he wanted a more effective protest. He could have convinced his entire team to not show up on game day. Now, that would be funny, how would sixty thousand fans react if at the game they learned the team didn’t show? The owners would certainly not go along with his protest then would they? The media would talk about his cause 24/7 for months.

Instead of getting his message out he succeeded in turning the entire United States against him, as well as all NFL players, and the league. Do you remember what his reason was for kneeling instead of honoring the flag and the anthem? I do, but I’m not going to reveal it, because I think his protest is stupid, and I don’t want anyone reading this to get the idea that Colin is stupid.

Take A Knee

September 26, 2017

Take a little trip to Valley Forge in January. If you don’t know where that is, just Google it from the sidelines. Hold a musket ball in your fingers and imagine it piercing your flesh and breaking a bone or two. There won’t be a doctor or trainer to assist you until after the battle, so just wait your turn. Take your cleats and socks off to get a real experience. Then take a knee.

Then, take one at the beach in Normandy where man after American man stormed the beach, even as the one in front of him was shot to pieces…the very sea stained with American blood. The only blockers most had were the dead bodies in front of them, riddled with bullets from enemy fire.

Take a knee in the sweat-soaked jungles of Vietnam, from Khe San to Saigon…Anywhere will do. Americans died in all those jungles. There was no playbook that told them what was next, but they knew what flag they represented. When they came home, they were protested as well..and spit on for reasons only cowards know.

Take another knee in the blood-drenched sands of Fallujah in 110-degree heat..Wear your Kevlar helmet and battle dress…Your number won’t be printed on it unless your number is up! You’ll need to stay hydrated but there won’t be anyone to squirt Gatorade into your mouth. You’re on your own.

There’s a lot of places to take a knee. Americans have given their lives all over the world. When you use the banner under which they fought as a source for your displeasure, you dishonor the memories of those who bled for the very freedoms you have. That’s what the red stripes mean. It represents the blood of those who spilled a sea of it defending your liberty.

While you’re on your knee, pray for those that came before you, not on a manicured lawn striped and printed with numbers to announce every inch of ground taken…but on nameless hills and bloodied beaches and sweltering forests and bitter cold mountains…every inch marked by an American life lost serving that flag you protest.

No cheerleaders, no announcers, no coaches, no fans…just American men and women…delivering the real fight against those who chose to harm us…blazing a path so you would have the right to “take a knee.”

You haven’t an inkling what it took to get you where you are…but your “protest” is duly noted. Not only is it disgraceful to a nation of real heroes, it serves the purpose of pointing to your ingratitude for those who chose to defend you under that banner that will still wave long after your jersey is retired…

If you really feel the need to take a knee, come with me to church on Sunday and we’ll both kneel before Almighty God. We’ll thank him for preserving this country for as long as He has. We’ll beg forgiveness for our ingratitude for all He has provided us. We’ll appeal to Him for understanding and wisdom. We’ll pray for liberty and justice for all…because He is the one who provides those things.

But there will be no protest. There will only be gratitude for His provision and a plea for His continued grace and mercy on the land of the free and the home of the brave. It goes like this…

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Kneelers vs Hand Over Heart

61AgRLArSjL.jpg

Last night in a dream I saw a special football game played. One team wore red and the other blue uniforms. The uniforms were not what made this game special, it was the make up of the teams. The players on the red team were all patriots who loved standing with  a hand over their heart and to sing the National Anthem before the game. The Blue team was comprised of the kneelers. Both teams played their hearts out, and I woke up before anyone scored, so I can’t tell who won.

The concept of a two team playoff where the teams are from totally succinct players would be an excellent way to ease the tension of the country. It would be like having war on the football field. I’m not sure the winner would be satisfied with the end. For instance, would the kneelers really give up protesting what they believe to be a huge problem in America, i.e. that the police across the country shoot blacks without cause? Would we as fans be satisfied that the issue has been resolved? Probably not. My conclusion is that this kind of competition will never happen, nor will it save anything, but it may be entertaining.

NOTE! I posted this yesterday and have since learned that I am wrong. The verbiage below is purported to be found in the NFL Policy Manual, not the Official Rule Book. I am sorry for not having checked it out to verify it’s validity.
