You can’t fix stupid QB Tom Brady

As they say, no matter one’s success in life, you just can’t fix stupid. Yeah, but if they’re rich and famous like famed NFL QB Tom Brady, how can you call him stupid? Well, to be rich and famous in the NFL, one needs good genes if you’re still playing at (almost) 43 and a big helping of God-given talent. Sports, obviously, is different, from most other pursuits. It’s the one area where God-given talent is the most pronounced. In the area of academics, one can study and become very good at one’s area of interest. In athletics, however, you can practice your favorite sport almost every day of the year and never make it to the pros. One is either born with that high level of athletic talent, or one is not.

Some Major League Baseball players have already said they won’t play in the league’s improvised 60-game season. I look for more players to follow suit until there won’t be a season at all. Same goes for the NBA, but we shall see. Hey, did you see that if the game is played, the players will be able to put “Black Lives Matter” on their jerseys, and the league will paint the slogan on stadium walls? In a sports league, the NBA, where only approximately 23 percent of the players are white (they’re usually the guys sitting on the bench), and 74 percent of the players are black (clearly a racist system or else 100 percent of the ...
