In a recent article in the Murfreesboro Pulse shock jock and local conservative talk radio personality Phil Valentine ignorantly discussed the issue of the racist headline that showed up on ESPN about Jeremy Lin, a basketball player for the New York Knicks.
Here, though, is my question: would it be better for me to give up paying attention to sports beyond this Lent? Would I be a more spiritual person? A more productive minister?
Kremer projects Midwestern values of focusing on the team instead of the individual. He beats a cupcake team by fifty points, but praises the opponent's "hustle" or "fighting spirit." I've tried to get him to trash talk, but Carl is not going to let that happen.
When ESPN created an especially stupid and racially charged headline, it only took 36 hours for the fallout to begin. Thanks, in part, to the loud thunderstorm on social media.

Extreme sports legend Travis Pastrana rightfully calls this coming weekend the craziest of his life. He'll be making his NASCAR debut in Indianapolis on Saturday, yet he's competing in X Games' events in Los Angeles on Thursday and Friday and Sunday.
Not everyone agrees that we should continue to harbor such ill will against LeBron. Here, a roundup of what sports columnists are saying about "The Decision" as the Heat sit on the brink of elimination.
