… North Carolina deserves the Death Penalty [#athletics][#academics]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 15th,2016

.. one can debate the academic propriety of an African – American studies program . I can accept the proposition . I do , however , debate its value and its morality …

.. in this case , however , these young people at the University of North Carolina were misused and abused by the system . The system itself is corrupt , and is in great need of reform …

.. the coaches are in fact responsible for this situation . They are in command of their respective programs . They need to be held responsible for this corruption to the Univeristy , the student body , the faculty , and the Government of the state and the taxpayers of the State of North Carolina …

.. [link] to the sports news article …

.. the most affected programs are men ‘ s basketball and men ‘s football . They need to be thoroughly cleansed before being allowed to continue . There is a way to do that , though …

.. What the N.C.A.A. calls the ” Death Penalty . ” Yes , Both Programs ….

.. the shock and horror of losing both programs will hit the University of North Carolina very much . They are both revenue – generating programs . So , tough cookies …. Shut them both down ….

… Luis Suarez strikes Again [Uruguayan striker]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 1st,2014

.. no , folks , he is not on strike ..

.. he is a soccer , er , football player . A damn good one .

.. Suarez and his ” Big Mouth ” …

.. Suarez and his " Big Mouth " ...

.. Suarez and his ” Big Mouth ” …

 

.. unfortunately , also , one with a nasty habit of biting his opponents . Why ?

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..

.. [link] to theblog  post ..

.. last year he was player of the year in the Barclays Premier League in Great Britain . 30 goals , 18 assists . That came after a delayed start to the season , after another 10 game suspension that carried over from the previous season …

.. believe you me , FIFA and UEFA are not going to like it one bit . In the internet age , millions will have this jackass stunt on video …

.. a striker , by the way , is the lead player on the pitch [field] . He is usually the best offensive player , but not always . The striker is called on to organize and lead the offence , and will take a large majority of shots , but not all of them …

… Great and Simple Ad , Scarlett !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,February 1st,2014

.. I caught this ad , even though I am not exactly a Scarlett Johannson fan . Well , I am still not , but I am open to the possibility , now . She is unquestionably beautiful , no doubt about it . Also , a great ad . Simple , Dignified . Classy . Emerging Company . Known Company .

.. [h/t — BleacherReport]

.. [link] to the commercial .

.. I caught up with this because Sodastream is a good product , but more so is because it is an Israeli company , with operations in part in the West Bank [Judea & Sumeria] . Johannson has , until recently , had charitable food group Oxfam as one of her good works . She broke ties with Oxfam because of calls of her to split with Sodastream , and over their ops in the West Bank .

.. from what I know , Johannson is not Jewish , but has family that is . So , she is no dimb bulb . She evidently did her homework before she took up the ad campaign for Sodastream . She pretty well understood what she was getting into . Not the boycott calls , though .

.. this one is the ” uncensored ” version . The ad will run on FOX on the Super Bowl broadcast , but the last part of the ad , about Coke and Pepsi , will be edited out ..

= = = =     = = = =

.. yea , I am a football fan . If you are wondering , I am a longtime and lifelong fan of the Cleveland Browns . So , you can say that I am a glutton for punishment [Ha!Ha!Ha!] …

.. yea , I am going to watch the Super Bowl . I am pulling for Denver to win . The big difference will be Seattle ‘ s offence against Denver ‘ s defence . Peyton Manning will find a way to move the ball . Moreno & Ball will help , some , maybe enough . The difference maker will be MarShawn Lynch & Co against Denver ‘ s run defence …

.. If Seattle runs the ball well , then Denver is in trouble . I do not think that Seattle will , unless they bring back the read option and use it a lot .

.. Denver 28 , Seattle 24 ..
