Shannon Sharpe Had The Perfect Comeback After A Twitter Troll Made Fun Of His Lisp
Yahoo News - about 1 year
Don’t come at Shannon Sharpe on Twitter. It all started with this tweet about the Raiders, which seems a bit unfair given that their season was ruined when Derek Carr and Matt McGloin got hurt and the team was stuck with Connor Cook at quarterback. Sharpe wasn’t the only one out there trolling Raider Nation, but one fan didn’t like that Sharpe went after his team.

Richie Incognito, Redskins and Racism in the NFL

"Once upon a time, a woman was picking up firewood. She came upon a poisonous snake frozen in the snow. She took the snake home and nursed it back to health. One day the snake bit her on the cheek. As she lay dying, she asked the snake, "Why have you done this to me?" And the snake answered, "Look, bitch, you knew I was a snake." -Russell Means, Natural Born Killers Irritatingly, the "Richie Incongito Is a Bully" and the "Richie Incognito Said the Word 'Nigger'" storyline has been dominating the ESPN Sportscenter episodes recently.

Wayne Besen: Prayer Isn't a Team Sport
Huffington Post Sports - about 5 years
In 1984, I was placed on the varsity basketball team as a high school sophomore -- a team that held a daily Evangelical Christian prayer after practice. Even though it was a public school, we were forced to gather in a circle near center court and offer pleas to God that always ended "in Jesus' name we pray," although not all of us were Christians. This intrusive ritual was student-initiated and well-intentioned, yet there was a high degree of coercion. As a scrawny 14-year-old playing with muscle-bound 18-year-old men, I was too intimidated to speak up and challenge the appropriateness of such unconstitutional, sectarian prayers. To get along, those like me, learned to go along and violate our consciences. Unfortunately, similar situations are happening every day and highlight why prayers and showy displays of team piety should immediately be excised -- from grade school to the professional ranks. That means no more team prayer circles or Bible studies. Team chaplain...
