Kaepernick Refuses To Stand During National Anthem

Today's Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?! probably isn't what you think it is …

With yesterday's controversy about Colin Kaepernick still fresh in everyone's minds, you probably think today's Sunday Morning WTF?! was going to thrash the 49rs quarterback for refusing to stand during the national anthem. Sorry. Not going to happen. Instead, our WTF?! is for all the so-called patriots who are calling Kaepernick out for not being American enough, ignoring the fact that his protest is nothing but pure American.

Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?! "patriots," don't you know that forcing people to do a thing is, like, well … do I really have to spell it out for you? Seriously? Oh, your poor widdle fee-fees were hurt because a person shared an opinion that you is not your opinion? Your widdle fee-fees were hurt because you can't force another man to do a thing? Poor you. How about this, though? How about you demonstrate why he is wrong by being better Foxtrottin' Americans? I mean, seriously, WTF?!

We Are Going Dark Again (Maybe)

We are heading to Virginia for a few days, which means two things: One, while we may have Internet connection, we may not be able to update standings and stats; we may not update the website until Friday morning morning. And, two, if you make any trades while we are away — seriously, you still have Bautista on your roster? Stanton? Cespedes? Kershaw? What do you think you are in, a M*A*S*H Unit Fantasy League? — I will process those trades Friday.

Have a great week!

They Both Picked It Up With Their Bare Hands!

Tip of the Ballcap to Downgwhipped owner Kevin Klinkhamer, who sent us this link last week with the comment, "This happened twice in the span of three games and the Orioles were on the receiving end both times. And they both picked it with their bare hands! Whiskey!? Tango!? Foxtrot!?!"


Thanks, Kevin!

We Are Going Dark

We are heading up north to Evert, MI, to watch the Perseids this weekend, which means two things. One, we won't have Internet access all weekend. And, two, we won't be able to update the website until Monday morning. If you make any trades this weekend — seriously, you still have Bautista on your roster? Cespedes? Kershaw? What do you think you are in, a Hospital Patient Fantasy League? — I will process those trades Monday.

Have a great weekend!

Look at me, Ma, I have two Sierra-stains in a single post. (We are not including McCain as one of the Sierra-stains. Though he has moments of being completely and utterly despicable, on the whole McCain is not nearly as despicable or craven as Donald Trump or Paul Ryan. So he has that going for him.)

Paradise Circus

I am in a Massive Attack mood today and just heard this fave, which was the killer theme for the BBC show "Luther." I don't know why I didn't know this before, but the singer here is Hope Sandavol, singer of the relentlessly gloomy — but personally beloved — Mazzy Star. This song a bit of a marriage made in heaven. If you haven't heard it, it will take a few spins before it connects … but when it does, it will be difficult to extract it from you brainwaves.

Sorry About That, Chief

After getting back from NYC, we hopped in our car and drove to Michigan for a relaxing time on Green Lake near Interlochen. While the Internet connection may have been great, we didn't care. Thus, we didn't update the website consistently this weekend. Sorry about that, chief.
