Gruden out...is Clark Kent next?


 (My new American Thinker post)

How far do we go?  I guess that we go back as long as it takes to bring down whomever we want to bring down.

According to the latest from "the cancel culture," Jon Gruden wrote some mean things about ten years ago.  This is the story:

Gruden, who was in the fourth year of a 10-year, $100 million contract, released a statement following the decision to resign.

"I have resigned as Head Coach of the Las Vegas Raiders," Gruden said. "I love the Raiders and do not want to be a distraction. Thank you to all the players, coaches, staff, and fans of Raider Nation. I'm sorry, I never meant to hurt anyone."

Okay.  He did write some awful things.  At the same time, I never heard of a black player complaining about the coach.  On the contrary, he was a good coach and won championships.

Wouldn't it make more sense to resolve these "10 year old emails" by apologizing and moving on?  Yes, an apology should have been the ending of this episode.

Who is next?  Who is holding some emails out there and planning to drop them on Twitter?

It makes me wonder if Clark Kent, the fabled journalist at the Daily Planet, is next on the cancel list.

Why Clark?  Well, it turns out that DC Comics has now confirmed that the son of Superman is gay.  Yes, our favorite Man of Steel, faster than a speeding bullet, had a baby with the pretty Lois Lane.

And Superboy grew up to be gay.  Can these people be more predictable?  The new Superman 2021 falls in love with a male reporter.  Wonder if his name is Don Lemon?

So is someone going back to the original series to find out what "homophobic" comments were featured on the show?  Maybe there's a dialogue somewhere about Superman wishing for Superboy to grow up and be just like Dad!

I'm sure that they will find some line from the comics or the TV series to prove that the show should be canceled.  After all, how can a white male who thinks Lois Lane has a nice figure survive in this crazy culture?

In the meantime, our cities are torn by crime, our border is overwhelmed, and China is talking Taiwan.

For sure, the new Superman 2021 will talk about systematic racism when he is flying "loverboy" around the clouds.

Yes, Marie Osmond is a year older today!  She was born in Utah on this day in 1959.   I am not making this up!  It's very true!  Check it out!

Like so many "older brothers", my brother and I grew up hearing Marie Osmond songs from our little sister's room!

Over time, I came to like some Marie Osmond songs.  She has grown up and turned into that fit lady who advertises a diet.     

Happy birthday!

Happy # 79 to Jerry Jones

It's hard to believe but Jerry Jones bought the Cowboys in early 1989 or many years ago.    He purchased the Cowboys, hired Jimmy Johnson and fired Tom Landry.

I can still remember the weekend.  Jones was the new owner.  Landry was the ex-coach.  And most Cowboys' fans were in a state of shock. After all, Landry had coached the Cowboys for 29 years!

How can we evaluate Jones' tenure?

The good news is that Jones won 3 Super Bowl titles.  His early drafts produced Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith!

The bad news is that the Cowboys have not returned to The Super Bowl since 1996.   They've had some good teams but it's been inconsistent. 

On balance, Jones has been a good owner.  He is fan friendly.  He took the team to the new stadium, perhaps the best football facility in the country. It has a retractable roof and 60-yard digital scoreboard.

Jones is also quite a businessman.    

Yankees? Patriots?  There aren't a lot more successful or profitable teams than the Cowboys!




Happy # 80 Paul Simon

We say happy birthday to a great songwriter and performer.    Paul Simon was born in New Jersey on this day in 1941.    

He and Art Garfunkel were one of the great duos in pop history:  3 of their songs were  #1: "The Sound of Silence", "Mrs. Robinson", and "Bridge over Troubled Water".

In 1971, he started a solo career and had more hits on the radio.   Along the way, he won 12 Grammy Awards, and “Bridge Over Troubled Water”, “Still Crazy After All These Years” and “Graceland” were albums of the year. 

In 2003 he was given a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for his work as half of the duo Simon and Garfunkel. 

Paul Simon, one of the great songwriters of the last 50 years.    His song lyrics are just great.
