Happy # 72 Maureen Mcgovern

We say happy birthday to Maureen McGovern who was born in Youngstown, Ohio, on this day in 1949.

We remember Maureen for "Morning after" or the theme song of the movie "The Poseidon Adventure".  Remember the one about the cruise ship that flipped  over in the middle of the ocean?

Scary movie and a nice pop song by Maureen McGovern.  

It was the a big hit in the summer of 1973!  She did not have another Top 20 until "Different worlds" in 1979, a song that reminds me of "The love boat" theme song.

Click here for "Morning After":




"There's got to be a morning after
If we can hold on through the night
We have a chance to find the sunshine
Let's keep on lookin' for the light

Oh, can't you see the morning after
It's waiting right outside the storm
Why don't we cross the bridge together
And find a place that's safe and warm

It's not too late, we should be giving
Only with love can we climb
It's not too late, not while we're living
Let's put our hands out in time

There's got to be a morning after
We're moving closer to the shore
I know we'll be there by tomorrow
And we'll escape the darkness
We won't be searchin' any more

There's got to be a morning after
(There's got to be a morning after)
There's got to be a morning after..."

"Cuban-American, Dancing On The Hyphen" by Amarilys Gacio Rassler




This is one of our favorite books about "growing up in the US".     Amarilys writes a lot about her family and recalls little things about Cuban culture.   Lots of fun!

Nobody cares what Sue thinks



americanthinker.com/blog/2021/07/nobody_cares_what_sue_thinks.html

Once again, athletes have found a receptive media for all their political philosophy.  I recall when they got questions about their sport:  "Hey Tom Seaver did you think that the manager was going to take you out of the game when you walked the first batter in the 9th inning?"  Or "Hey Bart Starr did you call that Quarterback sneak in the huddle or on the line"?

Now, they've all become political pundits because they know that there is a microphone waiting for their comments.

The latest is Sue Bird of the WNBA.  In the interest of full disclosure, I don't watch the WNBA and did not know this young woman's name.   Nevertheless, here is Sue the self appointed philosopher:      

Sue Bird and the rest of the WNBA have been at the forefront of social justice protests and during the 2021 season, most players have left the court before the national anthem has played.

Bird and Team USA have no plans to leave the court for the national anthem during Olympic competitions this coming week and the Seattle Storm legend sees no contradiction in it.     

"You are wearing USA jerseys, and it does change the conversation a little bit and what you're representing," Bird told the Associated Press on Saturday. "With that, I don't feel like a hypocrite in any way. Everyone knows where we stand. I don't think it contradicts anything since we're actually doing the work."

Bird and her fellow Olympic teammates have shown unity through their exhibition matches by locking arms before tip-off. Bird was also the U.S. flag bearer during the parade of nations at the opening ceremony in Tokyo.   

She said she believes people know where their stance is on social justice issues.

You really think so, Sue?   WNBA games average 357,000 viewers across ABC, ESPN and ESPN2.  It's better than than the 205,000 from 2020 but still a rather small number.  Hallmark, with super traditional movies and no actor pretending to be a philosopher, is at 493,000, so what does that tell you Sue?

It sounds to me that sports fans are sending you and the WNBA a message:  "We don't care!"  And they are going to care even less if you keep thinking that the country cares what you think about this or that.   Don't believe me?  Ask your partners at the NBA.

Happy # 78 Mick Jagger



We say happy to Mick Jagger, one of the greats of rock.    He was born on this day in 1943.

Mick, along with Keith Richards, turned The Rolling Stones into one of the greatest rock bands ever.

Rolling Stone magazine, no connection to the rock group, has Jagger at # 16 of the top vocalists ever.
