For as much controversy as has been manufactured around the National Anthem, there is still nothing quite like witnessing a powerful rendition of a song that brings so many of us pride here in the United States.

In the annals of sports history, there are but a few moments of anthemic joy that stand atop the list, with this author’s personal favorite being the incredibly salient and pointed version performed by Whitney Houston at the Super Bowl in 1991:

Now, 30 years and some months later, another unforgettable anthem moment has arrived.

Nassau Coliseum was roaring with energy Wednesday night as fans in attendance belted out the National Anthem before the New York Islanders Game 6 victory over the Boston Bruins in a viral moment that is sure to give anyone chills.

Nicole Raviv regularly sings “The Star-Spangled Banner” before Isles games at the Coliseum but on Wednesday night she was overpowered by the crowd, even turning over the microphone to the fans.

“My heart is full. The coliseum will forever have the best backup singers in the #NHL,” Raviv wrote on Twitter.

A moment like this was made for social media, and it soon spread like wildfire.

The fans were ready, however, after a microphone glitch forced them to join in on the anthem just two games earlier.

Major League Baseball Moves Bat Production to Red China

Major League Baseball has fired its U.S.-based bat makers and sent the contract to the Chinese.

Major League Baseball is no longer America’s game. Apparently, it’s China’s, now that the league has fired its U.S.-based bat makers and sent the contract to the Chinese.

Bats for MLB have been made in America for the entirety of baseball’s existence… until today.

According to Yahoo News:

When Major League Baseball hosted its “Field of Dreams” game in Iowa in August, it was a celebration of small-town America. But less than 100 miles away, a small town is worrying that its local economy, that’s centered around baseball, is getting shut out. Kris Van Cleave traveled to Caledonia, Minnesota, where a factory partially owned by MLB is closing up shop and shipping jobs overseas.

So much for the “American pastime.” So much for the one game America is most famous for.

But this is where all pro sports are headed.

Soon all the Little Leaguers will be proudly swinging those bats that are stamped “Made In China.”

What an outrage.

MLB Star Blames Vaccine Side Effects for Lackluster Season

Experts were quick to throw cold water on the idea, however.

Published

on

The Biden administration’s trouble in moving the needle on the national vaccination rate continues to be one of the White House’s most poignant failures, and it shows.

The Executive Branch has been so concerned with their lackluster performance that they’ve begun to berate pop music superstars on Twitter over what they’re calling “vaccine misinformation”.

Didi Gregorious is worried about his own lackluster performance, on the other hand, after a potential side effect from a COVID-19 vaccine slowed down his 2021 MLB season.

Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Didi Gregorius is in the midst of one of the worst seasons of his career, and he’s pointing to at least one difference between this year and last.

Gregorius said he had been dealing with complications after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. He told the Philadelphia Inquirer Wednesday the jab caused him to develop pseudogout, a form of arthritis, and he’s been in pain ever since.

“Some people say it’s from the vaccine. I will say it’s likely from that too,” Gregorius told the Inquirer. “But when you say that, everyone looks at you like you’re stupid because the vaccine is not supposed to be like that or give you that reaction.”

And Gregorius has found little solace in medical treatment.

Gregorius said he started to feel the swelling in his elbow after receiving a second dose in April. Even though pseudogout can be treated with medicine, the shortstop said the discomfort has not subsided.

Some experts have attempted to explain away Gregorius’ connection, stating that the baseball star’s recent vaccination may have caused a “flare up” of his already-existing but unknown pseudo-gout, but that it did not cause him to become ill.
