They’re not in first right now.

Nope. Not at all. I don't like it shoved down my throat at every turn, though. I have nothing against patriotism and a healthy respect for the country you live in/ the military that protects it. However, life is more than country and its defense. The more you worship the military and the flag, the more militaristic and jingoistic you become. History has shown as much. This was the basis of nazi Germany and currently, pootin's russia. Besides, this adoration of the armed services has more to do with politics and money than patriotism.

But enough of that. The pirates are in first? How long does anybody think that's gonna last?


A well-reasoned response, COR-TEN. I would add the Soviet Union to your list of bad guys with nationalistic displays. While I know we're polar opposite in the political arena, I must say I agree with you with the over the top displays at sporting events today. For instance, at a recent minor league hockey game I attended, I stood up for not only the National Anthem, but also God Bless America and America the Beautiful before the start of the game. Albeit a different child's choir sang each one so I guess it was an opportunity for them but what was wrong with the good ol' days where the organist would play the anthem and that was it? I, too, am uncomfortable with over the top displays.

As for the Bucs, I am surprised and happy for their decent start, but I have absolutely no confidence they'll be in the running for the division or even a wild card.

That's what we said when they went into their last tailspin.

We'll see if the Reds are the cure for their latest slump.

And now the Reds are spanking them 6-1. If I were Taillon, I'd ask for a trade to Houston. It's where Pirate pitchers go to succeed.

I see military worship and wrapping sport in the flag has infected MLB as well. It's not even veterans day or memorial day.

I know NFL ownership is dominated by conservatives, but baseball? I had no idea.

But we live in an alternative universe. The Pirates are in first fucking place?

I disagree.

I would like to see it turned up a few notches.

I think all male attendees with hair longer than the ear lobe with hipster dufus beards should be stopped, frisked and interrogated at military gun point. That goes for fat women with hair shorter than neck length. This should be followed by a pledge of allegiance to the flag and Donald Trump no matter what president is in Office. Then a small military high step parade before the game during the national anthem while all players stand erect on the field saluting.

We said that during the last slump.

This team is hitting driven. We don't have a stopper in the rotation.

Therefore I expect a lot of multi-game win streaks and then multi-game losing streaks.

Even a professional might have trouble maintaining an erection through all of that.

I’m glad to see I’m not the only person on these boards with a dirty mind...
