Are they going to rename the Braves-Indians World Series titles too?

1980 Fleer Laughlin World Series Team Logo Sticker Backs - [Base ...
Back in 1948, the Indians beat the Braves then the Braves beat the Indians in 1995.   
Are they going back and change those titles?  Or will they get the Maris asterisk when he hit 61 in 1961?  
The silly season is in full bloom.  Apparently, the Indians of Cleveland are now thinking about changing their name.
They already changed their mascot or that “offensive to some” Chief Wahoo.  I remember a lot of baseball cards with the chief staring at you.   I loved those Indians uniforms but then I am the kind of guy who does not mix baseball with politics.  I’d rather focus on batting averages and pitchers who throw strikes.
The mascot had been part of the team since 1948, their last championship.  They dropped poor Wahoo in 2018.   Then Wahoo got revenge when the Indians lost again.   
Honestly, there are lots of angry Indians fans in the world but not one ever complained about Chief Wahoo dropping fly balls, striking out with the winning run at second or losing game 7 to the Marlins.   As far as I know, most of the “expletives” from the bleachers were shouted at the bullpen, not the Chief.
According to news reports, the team used to be known as the Bluebirds, Broncos, and the Naps.  
Maybe they can go with Bluebirds but the fans in Toronto may object to that because their team is Blue Jays.  Worse than that, the Latin guys are going to find that name is a bit “girly” or just too feminine.
Maybe Broncos but I don’t remember any history of horses in Ohio.  I can connect Broncos with Colorado but not really Ohio.
Maybe Naps?  What in the world is that?  The Naps sound like a short for Napolitanos but then someone will cry cultural appropriation or too much like Columbus.
What happens now that the “wokes” are louder than ever?  
Let President Trump win Ohio and the Indians the World Series and everyone will forget this nonsense.

Let’s give the UN the WHO treatment

It’s time to shut down the UN Human Rights Council.  Or maybe the US can stop paying its UN dues and the whole place can crumble on its own.    

Wouldn’t the UN building make a wonderful hotel by the river? 

As reported here,  the U.N. Human Rights Council interrupted Ariel Ruiz Urquiola, a Cuban biologist and human rights activist.  

Who prevented this man from speaking?  Who else but Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea and China?   

What are these dictatorships doing in a Human Rights Council?  I don’t know but I’d love to see President Trump give the UN the WHO treatment.

We remember William Schallert (1922-2016)

William Schallert was born on this day in 1922 and died in 2016.

He was a very accomplished actor.   He worked on many TV and film projects, from "Star Trek" to the Oscar-winning film "In The Heat Of The Night", as well as serving as president of the Screen Actors Guild from 1979 to 1981.  

Many of us remember him as Patty Duke's dad, or Mr. Lane.    They made 102 episodes of that series.

Two of my favorite baseball movies


Over the next few days, we will get to watch a few baseball movies.  Frankly, there are a lot of good ones, from "The pride of the Yankees" to "Field of dreams" to the more recent release of "Moneyball".  

Let me recommend two of my favorites.   

"61" is a very good movie about Roger Maris hitting 61 home runs in the 1961 season.  He faced a lot of adversity that year and performed admirably.

"Eight men out" is about the 1917 Chicago White Sox and the money scandal.

We remember First Lady Nancy Reagan (1921-2016)


We remember Nancy Reagan who was born in New York on this day in 1921.    She died in 2016.

Most of us remember her as our First Lady, 1981-89.
