Keith Olbermann: How To Save Sidney Crosby From Donald Trump
I have been very moved by the sight of all those American football players kneeling in silent protest during the playing of their national anthem.
And refusing to be intimidated by the racist bully Donald Trump.
So you can imagine how disappointed I was to see this.
And read that Sidney Crosby wants us all know how proud he is to be going to the White House to meet Donald Trump.
In the wake of dozens of players and team officials around professional sports rebuking President Donald Trump over his condemnation of protests of social injustice, the Pittsburgh Penguins have no problem paying Trump a visit at the White House, and their captain, Sidney Crosby, is on board.
"It's a great honor for us to be invited there," Crosby said, according to Jim Cerny of the Sporting News.
Even though he's been there before...
And all he'd get out of another visit is a chance to shake Donald Trump's hand, or kiss his orange ass.
And even though Crosby's hometown of Cole Harbour has a history of racial tension.
So you think he'd know better than to pleasure a bigot like Trump.
But then what do you expect when he plays for the whitest league in the world?
And one of its biggest stars is this loudmouth moron.
Hockey commentator Don Cherry says media coverage of athletes kneeling during the playing of national anthems has been hypocritical.
Who would blame the media, compare a silent protest for racial justice to a quarterback thanking his godzilla after scoring a touchdown.
The left wing media are true to form. When Tim Tebow the former quarterback of the Denver Broncos went to his knees to thank the Lord, the lefties in the media said he was wrong and it was the wrong thing to do.
The late night leftie talk shows made fun of Tim, to the cartoonists in the paper he was a joke and they made fun of him. It was brutal. Yet the NFL players go on their knees to make a point and they are heroes. The reason they can make fun and ridicule Tim getting on his knees and thanking the Lord is because he is a Christian. No other religion you can make fun of and ridicule… only Christianity. If you are Christian you are open season.
And claim that it was an assault on Christianity, as only he could.
A buffoon who when he isn't sounding like a bigot, or promoting violence on ice, can do a really good imitation of one of Trump's deplorables.
And rarely fails to make an idiot out of himself.
But of course that won't help Sidney Crosby get out of kissing Trump's florid behind, now that he has gone on the record to tell us he'd consider that an honour.
And now that Trump is using him and his team as his hapless political pawns...
So I'm glad to see that super hockey fan Keith Olbermann is offering him and his pathetic Penguins some suggestions on how to avoid that ignominious fate...
You know, I don't think Crosby is a bad person like Don Cherry.
But I think he missed his chance to be more than just a hockey player.
And when he realizes what he's done.
He'll probably regret that forever...
