When I was hard at work in the Journalism program at William Paterson University, I would sometimes take short breaks, walk to the local 7Eleven, and buy a copy of the Star Ledger. The Star Ledger, now that was a newspaper.
When I moved to Pennsylvania I bought the Morning Call, and I was like what is this, anyway…….
I would sit in my car and thumb through the paper. I played football at the time so the Sports Section was most important, especially on Mondays after the NFL played on Sunday.
“Thank God for the Sports Section, it’s the only thing that’s real,” that’s what I used to say.
Real. What did I mean by real back then because at that time (2000-2003), there was not a doubt in my mind that the Middle East and Muslim terrorists were responsible for 911, and that was almost twenty years before President Trump began calling out the mainstream media?
Real. What did mean by real?
Ten years later it came to me.
New York Giants 19 Washington Redskins 10.
This is a fact, and you cannot debate it. It doesn’t matter how much you hate either team, and it doesn’t matter how much you inject your poisonous personal opinions (PPO’s) into the article itself; at then end of it all, you have to accept the New York Giants as the winner because of the score.
Now, if we can just keep out all the political over and undertones and propaganda, we might get our sport back.
Have a blessed day.
