The TV show, Ninja Warriors, is always fun to watch…but how can you tell a REAL master of anything?
If they make it look easy, they truly ARE the best, and this young man really is a natural climber.
Something tells me that Isaac Caldiero is not going to be a bus boy all his life.

Wow…I was really angry yesterday…and for some reason…this video made me feel a WHOLE lot better!
Steven Stankos, one of the best hockey players around, just happens to hate drones….and has a good idea how to take them down.
Thanks Steven, I needed that.
Think the rich don’t rule America?
I don’t know what’s worse…taxpayers subsidizing the building of sports stadiums for billionaires, or having to fork out subsidizes to pay for multi-million dollar X Presidential libraries and their lucrative X Presidential foundations.
St. Louis…is a great baseball town. Next to the New York Yankees, the Cardinals have always been one of the most successful franchises in the MLB. St. Louisians are also big hockey fans. We have the Blues and the fan base is just as strong.
But when it comes to football, there really is not much of a passion here for it.
Still, the taxpayers built a very nice football stadium for the RAMS, which was indoors, in 1995…but then, the Rams…sucked. They sucked for years. If you don’t have a winning team, you will not fill those seats. The sucky Rams were sold to a man named Stan Kreoenke..who said he wanted a NEW stadium or he would move the team.
Right. Blame it on the stadium. He wants OUT:
On January 31, 2014, both the Los Angeles Times and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Stan Kroenke purchased approximately 60 acres of land adjacent to the Forum in Inglewood, California. The purchase price was rumored to have been between $90 million – $100 million. Commissioner Roger Goodell represented that Mr. Kroenke informed the league of the purchase. As an NFL owner, any purchase of land in which a potential stadium could be built must be disclosed to the league. Kroenke subsequently announced plans to build an NFL stadium on the site, in connection with the owners of the adjacent 238-acre Hollywood Park site, Stockbridge Capital Group. This development has further fueled rumors that the Rams intend to return its management and football operations to Southern California. The land was initially targeted for a Wal-Mart Supercenter but Walmart could not get the necessary permits to build it. Kroenke is married to Ann Walton Kroenke who is a member of the Walton family and many of Kroenke’s real estate deals have involved Walmart properties. On January 5, 2015, The Los Angeles Times reported that Stan Kroenke and Stockbridge Capital Group are partnering up in developing a new NFL stadium on the Inglewood property owned by Kroenke. The project will include a stadium of up to 80,000 seats and a performance venue of up to 6,000 seats while reconfiguring the previously approved Hollywood Park plan for up to 890,000 square feet of retail, 780,000 square feet of office space, 2,500 new residential units, a 300-room hotel and 25 acres of public parks, playgrounds, open space and pedestrian and bicycle access. The stadium would likely be ready by 2018. In lieu of this St. Louis countered with a stadium plan for the north riverfront area, with the hope of persuading Missouri native Stan Kroenke to keep the Rams in the city. On February 24, 2015 the Inglewood City Council approved the stadium and the initiative with construction on the stadium planned to begin in December 2015.
Got that? Now, here’s the absurd part: The Democrats who RUN the city want to build a new stadium, football team or no football team. St. Louis has a democratic Mayor, and a democratic Governor, Jay Nixon. But we are still paying for the old stadium, which may I add. is INDOORS. Bonds for construction of the Dome are still being paid through 2021 with Missouri paying $12 million/year and St. Louis City and St. Louis County paying $6 million/year each— So how are they going to pay for the new one on top of the old one?
Common Core math.
Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon and the Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority want to build a new stadium along the Mississippi River to counter the Rams’ possible relocation to Los Angeles. The Missouri Development Finance Board approved the $15-million plan despite opposition from Republican Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, a board member who is running for governor. The sports authority plans to request another $17.5 million in tax credits next year and the year after, for a total of $50 million. That’s only a small chunk of funding needed for the project, which is estimated to cost $998 million.
The republican Missouri legislature is fighting this–and the city had an ordinance on the books to make sure that the voters would decide if they would support the heavy tax burden on them, once again, but a judge has simply, set it aside.
Which means, Jay Nixon is pushing for the taxpayers to pay for a brand new stadium which by all accounts won’t even have a team. On top of that, this is being pushed by the man who let Ferguson burn, Democrat governor, Jay Nixon.
Even if they could get a good team, there is no big money left here in St. Louis, what’s Nixon going to do? Bus in rich guys from around the country?
Nobody who lives here DARES go downtown anymore because that new stadium can be seen from Ferguson on a clear day. Like Detroit, downtown St. Louis is not much different from East St. Louis now….and yet…
The democrats want that stadium built and they want the poor guy barely making $40,000 a year to pay for it.
And the people paying for it will never be able to go, due to the price of the tickets. Add to that…it’s outside, near the river…add humidity to the cold and you have..misery. That football team better win the Super Bowl.
St. Louis needs a new football stadium like they need a new Arch.
Thanks to…those democrats who “care” so much about the “little middle class” people, Nobody Thinks, just like Obamacare, they are going to force it down our throats…where I’m sure the democrats are HOPING the Mexicans will move here and want to play soccer in the brand new stadium.
What else makes sense? It’s not only the black lives that don’t matter here—-for the democrats—- It’s the voters who would rather have a safe city than another sucky football team.
When democrats are always jumping into bed with their rich donor friends, whose looking out for YOU kid?
Does a football commissioner have the same right as a Judge? The big talk of course that has saved Hillary Clinton once again for even being discussed, is that Tom Brady of the Patriots, JUST like Hillary Clinton, destroyed evidence that would convict him of a “crime.” …the big crime being he cheated in the Superbowl.
Tom Brady not only violated his sport’s integrity by participating in a scheme to tamper with the inflation levels of footballs but actively tried to cover up the conspiracy, National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell ruled Tuesday, upholding the Patriot quarterback’s four-game suspension.
In a stunning statement, Goodell alleged that Brady’s “very troubling’’ coverup effort involved instructing his assistant to destroy his cellphone less than 24 hours before he was interviewed by Ted Wells, the NFL’s special investigator in Deflategate.
I remember a time when sports were sports…and I remember a time when you had to get a court order to look at someone’s private phone records.
There might be another reason that Tom Brady wanted his phone destroyed, and obviously, taking a page right off the Clintons’ book of delay, erase, destroy evidence bible, he thought…Hey, if Hillary can do it, why can’t I?
And how is that possible?
Have we gotten so used to the loss of our 4th amendment rights that now it is understood that we MUST hand over all personal data about ourselves…with no rights of protection whatsoever?
Hillary’s crime is one thing: she is paid by the citizens of this country and we have legal rights to her records, but Tom Brady is a citizen. What right does any football commissioner have to confiscate his phone records?
When the money is big, and your career depends on winning at all costs, we have see our politicians cheat, commit crimes, fraud, bribery, all the while protecting themselves by denying, lying, and protecting themselves with every deceit they can muster.
Sports in America is also big money, and why were we surprised when Mark McGuire and Roger Clemens denied for years that they took steroids?
Did they have to provide their cell phone data up?
They lied. They wanted to win. They needed to pump up to win. They did it.
And why not? Our politicians lie to us every day and get by with it.
Nobody Wonders…if a deflated ball gave him THAT much of an advantage over every other football player.
You STILL have to make the throw.
You STILL have to make the right call.
You STILL have to be one of the best.—Unlike our politicians, who it seems can be community organizers from Kenya one day, and President the next, most of the Sports stars ones who make it to the top are of the one percent.
Too bad our politicians can’t go through the same training.
Anybody that has had a kid in Little Leagues knows the scenario of cheating all too well. So, I’m sorry. The all black team that won the Little League highest honor last year, and they won it by stacking the deck with kids that were not suppose to be on that team…should lose those trophies.
Unfair you say? The adults did it? Mmmm………
According to my brother, the decision by the little league officials was right: You won the game boys…you have that honor, but you don’t get the title.
My brother has raised his son through the league, and he and I were both raised in a different America. The coaches played by the rules. But not today. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard my brother talk about five-year olds playing against kids twice their sizes by 100 pounds. Or teams with sixteen-year olds playing against 13-year olds. The kids try, but they can’t compete.
Guess what? The coaches have been doing this all over America. They go and get the best talent to make it to the top. Little league has become VERY competitive.
It’s a shame. The kids know they can’t beat the stacked team. And don’t be fooled, ALL the parents are aware of what’s going on too. The team that won the little league trophy was from Chicago.
That should tell you all you need to know.
But today, I did not hear ONE person anywhere say that the kids should forfeit the little league trophy.
The reason? It’s not the kids fault. Okay, It’s not, I agree. BUT…..
Let’s assume that the kids didn’t know that some of the kids on the team were NOT from the same place. That the coach had handpicked winners from around the area, and broke the rules.
The very fact is, rules were broken. It doesn’t matter if it’s not their fault, if everyone forgives the kids because their black or they’re just kids, than the message is:
You CAN cheat. Adults can cheat. If they get caught, nothing happens to them.
Jesse Jackson has called anyone a racist who thinks that rules were broken.
Please. How about playing another card…like the joker.
The team that lost, should receive that trophy, with an apology from the coach.
And then the kids on that team would learn a lesson about cheating. They would never forget it, and it would make better citizens of them all. They will see what happens when “leaders” who cheat hurt the people they are supposed to be leading, and they hurt the citizen…by cheating.
You either have rules, or you don’t.
IN America, cheating is not only allowed, it’s admired. Obama cheats every single day. He stacks the deck. And America has suffered dearly for it.
Anyway, let’s hope the officials at Little League stick to their decision.
(Thanks to my brother for his excellent take on it, and for making me see all sides.)
Nobody thinks it’s only right that a coach from a Boston Team called the Patriots wear a shirt that says, “Don’t Tread On Me.”
I want one….
Nobody Cares that the scandal of a deflated football and possible cheating of a quarterback, is the top news story of the day, which will lead to MORE people watching the Super Bowl,thereby making all the sponsors so slap happy, they will all go to Davos for an extended stay at their Swiss Chalets?
Nobody Cares that Obama continues to find creative ways to attack our police, and give out free money to people who don’t deserve it?
Nobody Cares that the scandal of a Sony employee hacking a movie that nobody wanted to see, and our President blaming it on North Korea, actually made millions more for the movie than was ever imagined?
Nobody Cares that that an American President will not met with the Prime Minister of Israel but will hang out with a lady who wears green lipstick and baths with her morning cereal, and that this is a real concern for our national security?
And Nobody Cares if Fox News acts like the death of a 90-year-old Saudi King is as big a news item as the death of a former U.S. President…and speaking of former Presidents, will nobody care if Obama doesn’t attend the funeral of x President, George H.W. Bush, should he die within the next two years?
Nobody Cares if the next President will have to spend $5 billion dollars to get the White House, and Nobody Cares if everybody wonders WHY would someone spend so much money to get a job that only pays $400,0000?
Nobody Cares if the reason all our American Presidents love the Saudi Kings, and will do anything for them, is the same reason they are willing to spent their life’s fortunes to get into the office?
Nobody Cares if I wonder…why the next Saudi King was just seen in Las Vegas?
Nobody Cares if I wouldn’t be surprised if the Saudi King pay a huge amount of money to American Presidents’ personal banking accounts, to keep America defending her country, and counting on her oil?
What deal did FDR make with the Saudi’s?
Hey, I can speculate. If we all seem to care more about deflated footballs than the corruption in our own government, in the words of one of the richest women in the world:
It’s one thing for the liberals to get into our eating habits, now they are using sports as another means to promote their agenda: which is usually don’t offend anybody: gays, or Indians.
But, Kirk Herbstreit put some common sense back into play:
The ESPN announcer responded by strongly disagreeing with Costas’ decision to inject politics into his sports duties:
Well I work on two shows, College GameDay in the morning, studio show like you guys do. I’ll talk about that topic…I’m going to break down the game, analyze the game, the subject matters involving that night and that broadcast. I just don’t think that’s the platform to do that. I agree with Al.
As NewsBusters has documented, Costas has a long history of pushing his liberal agenda while covering sports for NBC. In December of 2012, Costas blamed an NFL player’s murder-suicide on guns by proclaiming “If Jovan Belcher didn’t possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.” During the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, Costas proclaimed that Vladimir Putin was a better statesman that President Obama.
Costas has also weighed in on the debate over the Washington Redskins name, insisting in October 2013 that “Redskins can’t possibly honor a heritage…It’s an insult, a slur.” While Costas has eagerly talked politics while covering sports, millions of Americans would likely agree with ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit that politics and sports shouldn’t mix.
So, congratulations Kirk Herbstreit, you win the Nobody’s Fool award for the week, for expressing what most everyone feels who is a sports fan:
Please…just call the game guys.
Often times, the ones who invent something never really get the credit for it, so for the man who invented the jump shot, recognition was a long time coming. Kenny is a simple man, who invented a way to solve a problem…and it became part of the game.
The end of the story is filled with wisdom, for all the men and women who live silently knowing they contributed to the world, and never blew their own horn about it.
It’s a great story to start off the week.

Yes–I’m from St. Louis, and the Blues are our hockey team, and just in case you have been watching House of Cards (yes, I have and I did) instead of the Olympics tonight, T.J. Oshie, our hometown Blues boy, DEFEATED the Russians in a shootout game in Sochi!
I would have liked it better if NBC hadn’t of posted Michelle Obama’s congratulations tweet and Obama’s phone call to him while they wrapped up their broadcast at 10.30 pm…because it’s T. J. Oshie’s moment, and they just HAD to get top billing on his achievements.
I don’t ever remember any U.S. Presidents ever doing that for just one player.
Total fame hogs, the Obama’s. They should get on that giant hot dog with Miley.
Anyway, America won: …sweet.
Nobody Flashes on a Saturday morning
Two weeks of hearing about the Superbowl…is enough to drive anybody crazy. So, here’s some fun to get us all in the mood.
It’s for those of us who watch the game and WONDER….what cuss words came out of what player. Now we know.
I wish somebody would make a Mick Jagger video and do this…I could NEVER tell what the heck he was saying.
When it comes to sports, this week, we have a new bad boy on the block: Richard Sherman. Okay. I didn’t watch the game, but I didn’t have to. According to Richard himself, he is the bad–est guy in all of football, and was so overpowering Erin Andrews, all she could muster was disbelief. (Really, she was priceless.)
And so, this week I just HAVE to put up more proof, of how seriously our country is in decline. Even our sports hero’s can’t match the sports hero’s of yesterday when it comes to…how to talk smack.
Watch Muhammad Ali show the new boys how to do it–and you tell me…who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week?
Cassius Clay…and he’s not around to gloat. But if he was, I would sure like to hear what he had to say about Richard Sherman, wouldn’t you?
Richard Sherman definitely needs to practice more on his smack down communications. Julian was right on.
The president made the comments while speaking aboard Air Force One with David Remnick, the magazine’s editor and a former sportswriter for The Washington Post.
Obama said that while the risks were understood, if he had a son, he would not allow him to play professional football.
“I would not let my son play pro football,” he said. “But, I mean, you wrote a lot about boxing, right? We’re sort of in the same realm.”
I suggest we bring rugby America.
Is ANYONE surprised?
