During yesterday's Pearl Harbor anniversary commemoration, the Commander of the U.S. Pacific Command, Admiral Harry Harris, burned Colin Kaepernick during his remarks about the National Anthem.
Before last night's Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Washington Capitals game, National Anthem singer Caleb Green's mic didn't work and the Verizon Center crowd helped him out.
Players, like Colin Kaepernick, showing disrespect for the U.S. flag and the National Anthem are not playing well or at all in American living rooms. Americans turned their TV viewing away from the NFL in week 1. Will it continue?
Love South Park's take on this. The show takes on the over-the-top media coverage on the protest rather than the message.
The NFL is walking a fine line on these National Anthem protests which was started by Colin Kaepernick and week one ratings show it. Click link in title to read about it.
Liberals REALLY hate patriotism don't they? I have no problem with this discussion here about this promotion from Under Armour for the Wounded Warrior Project except for the part where Mr. Blackistone calls the National Anthem a 'War' Anthem and that it should not be played before games. My take on the whole issue about the uniforms is that has there NEVER been any blood splatter on a football uniform before?? Of course there has.
View the rendition of the National Anthem above at this past Wednesday's Sabres/Bruins game in Boston. 18000+ singing the National Anthem proudly will just give you chills. A great example of how sports can unite and bring out the best in us in times of turmoil. Well done Boston. (Video via Mashable)
