Do you mean to tell me that Patriot’s tight end Rob (Gronk) Gronkowski is afraid to catch a normally inflated football? I thought that he was supposed to be tough.

Maybe a name change is called for. How about the New England Wimps?Jack 2012 cropped

I’ve always had the perception that baseball, our national pastime, was a true family sport. That to watch the playoffs and subsequently the World Series, is a time when Mom’s, Dad’s and the kids would gather together around the TV to view this truly American event.

Then to have this family gathering interrupted by a commercial featuring an obviously single, svelte woman admonishing men to take this little pill so that they can have a stiff hard-on when they have sex. Not only will it give them a stiffer erection, but it will last longer, thus enhancing their sexual experience.

What kind of message are we trying to send out to our kids? I just don’t get it. I don’t know if messages like this have a greater adverse impact upon our boys or our girls. What I do know is that it’s all about money.

While watching the World Cup matches this past week I noticed that Uruguay’s star Luis Suarez had a huge overbite. Then, a couple of days ago Suarez bit one of his Italian opponents. This wasn’t the first time he’s been caught biting his adversaries.

I really don’t believe that it is his fault. I just think that his Beaver genes have become dominant, surpassing those human traits that most of us have. Poor boy.Jack 2012 cropped

Commissioner Adam Silver of the NBA really brought the hammer down  on LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling. It really presents a very strong message to owners of sports franchises, business leaders, politicians and educators, that bigotry in any form cannot be tolerated.

Our nation has  come a long way since President Johnson’s civil rights legislation. Obviously, we still have a long way to go. Isn’t it time that we accelerate our progress?Jack 2012 cropped

It seems to me that the pass that Joe Flacco made to his receiver in the end zone on second and goal, with a few seconds to go, should have been called a touchdown. the receiver caught the ball, had complete control of the ball, and only after he began to turn did the defender knock the ball out of his hands.

I think that coach Harbaugh should have contested the call. That would have, at least, given them some time to get their ducks in a row for the next couple of plays. Am I missing something in the rules?
