SuperBowl2015We’re passing on this year’s Super Bowl and all the Super Bowls in the future.

American style Football is turning its players and spectators into vegetables. See the way they sign their names. Look at the way their government is acting (staging coups and spreading misery), while fans slobber all over themselves.

The history of the United States has seen the American people lose control of themselves and their government, while they play their games, leaving the world in peril.

USOpen2014eKristinaMladenovicUSOpen-ShuaiZhangUnder a perfect sky in Flushing the U.S. Tennis Open got underway today.

One of the stories at this year’s Open is the lack of American men, among the top performers, in Grand Slam matches during 2013 & 2014. A Tennis Hall of Fame official we spoke with was forthright, saying the reason may have something to do with the adverse effects of American culture — making people soft (especially mentally), with no work ethic.

Kristina Mladenovic (top right) of France plays Petra Kvitova (recent Wimbledon champion) of the Czech Republic, 8/26. in what could be an interesting match.

NYRangersNYRangers2014cFormer NY Ranger greats Ron Greschner & Jeff Beukeboom joined fans before the team wrapped up its series against the Montreal Canadiens — advancing to the Stanley Cup Finals. They both said it would be a low scoring game, decided by one goal. Indeed it was (1-0).

Linsanity1Linsanity: The Jeremy Lin Story, is a moving presentation of the David and Goliath story of NBA player Jeremy Lin. The film, put together by friends of Lin, is an intimate look at the journey of the son of Asian immigrants from high school to Harvard and the NYKnicks.

LinsanityA special showing of Linsanity this evening in New York included NYC Comptroller John Liu and the film’s director Evan Jackson Leong.

In America today a Goliath has been erected—as egoism and algorithms ‘chew everything into nothing.’ Jeremy Lin confronts that beast and wins, but the struggle continues for him and for us.
