At The Finish Line…Where Only the Truth Matters

first_imgBILL NEAL•    There’s one truth I can assure you of.  Just like all the “I never use the “N-word” people came out of the woodwork, we now have all the do-gooders stepping up to say how disgusting Ray Rice’s attack on his soon to be wife was.  Now all of a sudden, the only people to hit women are NFL players.  What about the steroid and drug users that put on a suit and go to work every day . . . what about the police . . . how about military and war vets?  Now don’t get me wrong.  I am not pointing a guilty finger at anyone.  I’m just telling the truth here.  Statistics will tell you those other groups have a higher rate of domestic violence and lord knows I’m not giving NFL players a pass.  If you’re guilty,  you’re guilty, but let’s be honest here, and for the record, you know the #1 group doing all the damage . . . ?  It’s your next door neighbor.  It’s your family member.  It’s the one everyone knows about and does nothing about!!!•    Just so you know, I’m on record to tell you there’s no lower member of the food chain than a “so called” man who hits women, abuses children or mistreats seniors.  If I were sheriff, I would lock them all up in the same pit bull laced pit and throw away the key.Serena Williams, of the United States, hugs the championship trophy after defeating Caroline Wozniacki, of Denmark, during the championship match of the 2014 U.S. Open tennis tournament, Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014, in New York.

Edgar Hoover’s cross-dressing behavior and make a top 100 list of the things the FBI screwed up.•    Another medical explanation for Pedro Alvarez being out of the line-up because of an alleged bad ankle is . . . “Hey Pedro, you just can’t cut the mustard anymore.”  “J-Hay” is getting it done big time, but thanks for memories (Look, don’t blame me.  I’m just giving you the truth.)•    Man you just gotta love this time of the sports year.  Baseball coming down the stretch, football just cranking up, hockey set to start next week . . .huh?  And NBA, college and high school basketball tips off in 30 days.  You just gotta love it.< You Have Just Crossed the Finish Line >last_img read more
