Former MLB great Gary Sheffield may have been one of the greatest baseball players of his generation, but he definitely isn’t a consumer of baseball at all. In a recent interview with CBS Sports Radio, Sheffield said that the ever-increasing numbers of strikeouts and home runs have turned him off. “I don’t watch baseball at all,” explained . “I was kind of forced to watch baseball because I was working with TBS. And so I had to remember, really find out who were these players. “I’ll tell you the secret now: I never watched the games during the season. I would get educated on it when I got there. It’s not something that I could watch, based on what I’m seeing, because I’ll be a complainer. … This is the first time I’ve ever said that out loud, but I’m just truly disappointed with what I watch.” Sheffield continued, “(Baseball was exciting) when I was playing. They’ve implemented all these rules now and they’ve changed the game so much, they’re making it more hitter-friendly, … [Read more...] about Former MLB Slugger Gary Sheffield: ‘I Don’t Watch Baseball at All’
Michael Heseltine is the establishment’s oldest hitman, a liberal infiltrator and a traitor to the conservative movement. It’s time for conservatives to hit back hard. A quarter of a century ago Margaret Thatcher was betrayed by many of her closest allies and forced from office. Conservatism in Britain hasn’t recovered since, and it’s unlikely we will ever find another leader of her strength again. She is one of the greatest losses our nation has suffered in the entirety of its history, and had she remained in office I have no doubt she would have lead us out of the EU. Most people remember Geoffrey Howe’s resignation as being the knife in Lady Thatcher’s back, but not as many remember Michael Heseltine lurking in the background. Lord Heseltine had already come close to bringing Lady Thatcher down over the 1986 Westland scandal in which he had tried to force the government’s hand to buy from European rather than American companies, and publicly accused Lady Thatcher of … [Read more...] about Why I Fired Heseltine — And Why Conservatives Need To As Well
UK Opposition leader Sir Keir Starmer’s disastrous encounter with publican Rod Humphris – now a viral internet sensation – is a textbook case of how not to win friends and influence voters on the political campaign trail. Step One: On encountering an impassioned voter completely ignore his concerns, even when he tells you that up till now he has been a lifelong supporter of your party. Step Two: Just to make sure that everyone knows how little you care for utter nobodies like this silly man with his inconvenient views, get your campaign staff to film you immediately afterwards delivering an off-the-cuff speechette stressing your contempt and indifference. Step Three: Step aside and leave the guy to the tender cares of your overzealous security staff… Politicians are supposed to serve the public, not ignore, belittle or abuse them. Starmer’s disgraceful performance in The Raven pub in Bath on Monday is now all over social media and, with any luck, will be the death of … [Read more...] about Delingpole: Why Stop at Starmer?

George Karl’s heart went out to Nuggets coach Michael Malone this past Monday night. All 50 million pieces of it. “When that stuff happens, you just get a heaviness — your stomach gets ugly,” Karl, the former Nuggets coach told The Post when asked about Jamal Murray’s gruesome knee injury. “Those moments, you have trouble speaking. It’s just like it freezes you, and it’s hard to say anything. It hurts.” He’s been there. On April 4, 2013, Karl’s Nuggets experienced a shock to the system similar to when Murray went down Monday night at Golden State. It was eight years earlier that Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari blew out his left knee during a home win over Dallas. Like Murray, the Italian was the Nuggets’ second-leading scorer at the time of his injury. “(Murray) was the man,” Karl said of the Nuggets’ star guard, who tore his left anterior cruciate ligament while driving to the hoop, a fall that ended his season . “He and (Nikola) Jokic took turns carrying the team, and … [Read more...] about Jamal Murray-less Nuggets “still can make noise” in NBA Playoffs.
