I can tell you, Randall, Tribe fans don't get into tomahawk gestures or chants or any of that crap.  The one problem we have / had is/was Chief Wahoo, who frankly got dumped on undeservedly from the whole Politically Correct crowd.  I don't think I need tell you what I think of THAT.

I don't know about you, but I'm sick and tired of hearing the "tomahawk chants" by fans of almost all the teams with Indian names: Flo. St. Seminoles, Atlanta Braves, Kansas City Chiefs among them. I'm not sure about the Cleveland Indians or Washington Redskins. It's downright insulting and annoying. But nothing can be done short or changing monikers.

Not that it's much of an explanation, but golf is supposed to be more "civilized," with a greater expectation of decorum, at least among the golfers.  The fans with their "GET IN THE HOLE!!!" are sadly another matter.  That said, a three-year suspension for flipping the bird strikes me as way overkill.  I wouldn't be surprised if the golfer involved litigates that decision, either.

I'm a little perplexed at the inequities or fairness in sports of penalties imposed on players.

One NFL player was suspended for a whole year for a tackle leading with his helmet, while another even more egregious helmet hit was not even flagged. Wow.

Then, some poor pro golfer was suspended for 3 years (!!) for giving the finger to a "fan" for yelling as he was taking a swing. Haven't we all done that in reactive anger?

Well, they say life isn't fair, so "it is what it is".

Will the Little League World Series never end? Viewership (ratings) must be high for ESPN to show so many games. I'm not watching.

The TV networks that carry the British Open are probably not too pleased that 3 of the biggest names in golf didn't make the cut. (Tiger, Phil, Rory)

Good one, Loren. That reminds me that while I enjoy a good boxing match, I loathe this kick boxing (UFC?) "sport" that seems to dominate ESPN. Talk about brutal and insane.

And, is it just me that dislikes Serena Williams? Her attitude and demeanor over the years has turned me off to her--I don't care how great people say she is. And why do almost all those women tennis players have to scream every time they hit the ball?

I don't know if anyone here follows the comic, "In The Bleachers," but it's been a part of the Cleveland Plain Dealer's sports section for as long as I can remember.  I thought today's offering was particularly worth a look ... and a laugh:

Well, for once I am ahead of the group. I find watching sports, all and any sports, from golf to car racing, intolerable, obnoxious, and loathsome.

Have to agree, Randall.  That "go in the hole!" business got old about 10 squares back.
