Today in Sports

Hook and yarn aside, there's a big firestorm in Los Angeles.  A big, racial firestorm.

A male (men have souls, mind you) named Donald Sterling, owner of the Los Angeles Clippers (at one time was the "kid brother" basketball team of the Los Angeles Lakers) popped off a few too many racist comments at the mouth. And, to put it as many old-school parents have quoted, he wrote a check his behind couldn't cash.  Now he's officially banned from the NBA.

Banned For Life.

Everyone you can think of has weighed in on the subject, from former Laker Magic Johnson to our own POTUS, Barack Obama.

Even Clipper head coach Doc Rivers threw his two pennies in the "sound off" bank, saying he won't return to the team for as long as Sterling runs the show.  I don't blame the man, either.

Aside from being permanently barred from the National Basketball Association, he was also hit with a $2.5 million fine.  Well, the dude is wealthy.  A $2.5 million penalty is like chump change to this guy.

To conclude this blog post, on behalf of the citizens of Los Angeles County...no, every ethnicity in the United States, I would like to say...


F**k off.

And now I'd like to throw in my two cents...

Donald Sterling, take a good look at this picture below:

You know what this means, right?

In case you don't know, this picture does not mean that it's a salted square biscuit that you dip in some soup and nibble.  It means "good ol' boys" like yourself who spout off unnecessary racial epithets.

You get it now?

Now I may be a Lakers fan, but please go to the Staples Center not only for the Clippers, but to piss off Sterling.

As for myself, I'll be at home stitching up some things because I'm too broke to buy tickets.  (smile)
