Fox News: "Shut up and hit the ball!"

Kapler: BUUUUURRRRPPPP

At least I hope this is the exchange he has.

Didn't we realize after Kaepernick that Francis Scott Key was a repugnant racist, who argued that the First Amendment didn't protect printing abolitionist fliers, that the third verse specifically threatens slaves w/ death if they try to rebel, and the actual melody was an English song to begin w/?

So all that, why the flying fark do we still play that crap?

Most people don't actually take the time to look into the history of either our anthem or its creation .secondly we cling to traditions even though the song is kinda outta place compared to other nations. Third we only started doing the anthem before games during world war two as part of supporting the troops overseas in both theaters.

Fark  both Kaps. Both of those knuncts. They are both multimillionaires. They act as though they are agreived victims. Both of them were given talents 99.99 of us don't have and 98.99 of us might kill to have. They both have never been laid off. Since their early twenties their lives have been set financially. Fark them and their privileged pampered asses. One blew it as a QB the other lucked out after failing in Philly.  But wahhhhhhhh....I'm going to performance pout. MLB should fine the shiat out of him.  Both leagues have to understand the fans don't care about anything except what's on the field. With the cost of going to a game out of reach for most and most working too much to catch a game Fark them. Speaking of actual grievances, somewhere Ted Williams is lighting a smoke and rolling his eyes.

I'm assuming this post is actually by Mike LowELL and therefore it is a 10/10.

advocacy isn't restricted to those directly harmed. people don't need to be aggrieved victims to stand up for those who are. someone who's privileged in one or many ways can recognize that others aren't and speak up for them. Whites can protest alongside Blacks, cishets with LGBTQIAs, men with women, childless with parents, on and on.

he "felt like a coward" for not protesting "the lack of delivery on the promise of what our national anthem represents."

...and therefore can't get the plight of the little guy?

You shoulda died instead of those kids. It would have made the world a better place

I admire people with the strength of their convictions. some of us dislike young children being shot in their school and want to do something about it so they avoid the anthem. some of us are bought off by the NRA so they refuse to do a damn thing about it.

the city connect uniforms are just a different design of the uniforms they're using this year and Metallica being from San Francisco came out to play the national anthem with the matching guitars.  not sure if it's a specific line of esp's but obviously you could get one customized like that if you were so inclined.  if you really really really like the San Francisco Giants and really really really can't stand to have a guitar that's not that one then go for it. but I think it's just custom paint on a standard higher end model

How bout we just end the cringy practice of playing anthems before games?

Mr.Tangent: How bout we just end the cringy practice of playing anthems before games?


I agree it's kind of silly for routine games. I can imagine being an athlete and having to try to feign interest through an anthem or two before every game. I remember having to stop in the middle of a run at an overseas military base and trying not to cramp up during two anthems.
