Looks like some sports are on the comeback, and so are the fellas here at Beer N’ Chicken! We get things kicked off, just catching up and what not before we get to the nitty gritty. We’ll start off with something petty though, like who in the hell could have seen this in their wildest dreams? Will the Detroit Pistons be playing basketball next year with a Michael Jordan logo front and center on their jerseys? Y’all know the fellas are going to be cooking on that one. And while we’re on the topic of basketball, the NBA plans to resume their season this week in the bubble down in Orlando Florida. Some star players have already tested positive for Coronavirus before heading down to the bubble. Names like Russell Westbrook, Bam Adebayo, and DeAndre’ Jordan. And even though we will probably still watch these games, should they still be trying to do this? Especially after we just heard what Lou Williams just got finished doing. And still on the topic of basketball, the women of the WNBA have upped the ante on their demonstration during the national anthem, by walking off the court, and going back to their locker rooms, as the song is being played. Do you think we’ll be seeing more creative ways of this kind of protesting?
Then we move over to Major League Baseball, as their season has finally had it’s Opening Day. To the surprise of many, scores of players came out to the field and kneeled and wore T-Shirts in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. This comes after the seemingly ostracization of former Oakland A’s Catcher, Bruce Maxwell, after he was the first MLB Player to kneel during the National Anthem. Could the fact that there are no fans in the stands at these games be playing a part in the players feeling safer to make such demonstrations?
Then of course, before we get on up outta the paint, we’ll be Winging It to close the show. So y’all know what to do. Have some chicken on deck, don’t care how it’s prepared, and have a cold one in hand while we get this sports talk going, right here, and right now, here on The Beer N’ Chicken Podcast!
