    Charlie Daniels Gone at 83

    Nobody mentioned this that I could see so since he died on the 6th, here he is in concert with his greatest hit. RIP "Long Haired Country Boy".

    I go right to the best sources to do my research for me, you and Tour with occasional contributions from other knowledgeable fans, like my coaching son.🤣

    Cleveland Indians Looking Into Changing Name

    I found this to be quite entertaining concerning team renaming. 😂 "This e-mail was sent to Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune after an article he published concerning a name change for the Washington Redskins: Dear Mr. Page: I agree with our Native American population. I am highly jilted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins. One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward. Let's ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians. If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns. The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60's alive. Gone. It's offensive to us white folk. The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war that cost this country so many young men's lives. I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our sports team names. Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres. Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged. We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates! Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children. The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or even spending habits. Wrong message to our children. The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children. The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. Wrong message to our children. The Milwaukee Brewers. Well that goes without saying. Wrong message to our children. So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should. Just the kind of thing the do-nothing Congress loves. As a die-hard Oregon State fan, my wife and I, with all of this in mind, suggest it might also make some sense to change the name of the Oregon State women's athletic teams to something other than "the Beavers" (especially when they play Southern California). Do we really want the Trojans sticking it to the Beavers? I always love your articles and I generally agree with them. As for the Redskins name, I would suggest they change the name to the "Foreskins" to better represent their community, paying tribute to the dick heads in Washington DC."

    Covid deaths decline

    Ever watch an avalanche? Starts out kinda slow and then suddenly it's death flying down the mountain. Revisit this thread on Sept. 1 and tell us what the deaths are compared to the 129,000+ at the moment. I'll look back for your answer then.
  7. My wife and I have had a 4th of July BBQ for friends and family every year since 1986. Sadly this is the first, but hopefully only, year we were not able to carry on that tradition. Happy Independence Day everyone!💥 Stay safe!

    Rushmore speech

    My protest stays at the ballot box where it belongs and risks no COVID exposure (you can vote by mail @ age 65+ in Texas). BTW there were Texas Mexicans who died fighting there for independence, not just white immigrant colonizers. La Raza needs to get the facts straight. 8 and possibly a ninth (Damacio Jimenez) by this count from Mexican Texas. 4 were from Ohio believe it or not. And one of those was the brother of a Mexican soldier, the only one Santa Anna allowed to be buried rather than burned. https://thealamo.org/remember/history/defenders/index.html

    Rushmore speech

    LOL! A message that actually ends in hope even though this famous speech was given 11 years to the date before the tide turned at Gettysburg and Vicksburg in 1863. Happy 4th. I'll be back when the season starts or when the King is voted out whichever occurs first.😁 https://www.npr.org/2020/07/03/884832594/video-frederick-douglass-descendants-read-his-fourth-of-july-speech

    The truth about the political board

    And some post shit on here as gospel while assuring everyone that if you don't buy it you are an un-American sombeach who hates our country. It gets tiresome and reflects poorly on the BB as a football board. To defend that with the BIG Boy Pants BS is just that. There are fiscal conservatives just like me (and hoorta) who have a strong belief that this president was a disaster well before COVID or the recent police killings. The constant TDS and UnAmerican BS is not an argument, it's a personal attack meant to deflect from people listening to an opposing opinion and should be treated as such. People should not just have to stay away because they don't like that aspect, because when that has happened then it has been a trump board and nothing more. I left for a short time until others with opinions different from that came over and started posting again and got "the treatment" for doing so. That's what it is.

    The truth about the political board

    Cal you seem to be making the point for getting rid of the board with all that crap you just spewed out. A lot of emotional garbage there for a guy who says he isn't emotional. "That is how the left rolls. In emotion." Oh really? Then what was that whole post above to start this thread?

    Positive News On COVID-19

    I've never worried about that with you cal. You've been more than sensible on this thing. We are driving strait through to Colorado and will mask when we stop for gas and a pee break. Everything else comes out of the ice chest in back. Picnic stops for lunch and dinner. We know them all in the small towns and roadside picnic areas on the back way up the eastern side of Colorado to I-70. From there we take the tollroad around Denver to I-25 and on up through Lyons.
