I’m Stephen Thomas with Here’s The Thing.
Well hello there everyone, nice to talk to you today! Wait … it is today, isn’t it? The sun came up? OK good, I was worried because everyone told me the world would end today. It’s so great that we live in a country where the sun rises nearly every day, bacon is plentiful, and most importantly we can spend hours upon hours of our short existence on this planet calling anyone who roots for a different sports team than us creatively vulgar names!
See, Here’s The Thing; No matter how you feel or what you think about the Presidential Election – and I TRULY DO NOT CARE, YOU ARE ENTITLED TO YOUR OPINION WHATEVER IT IS, YOU DO YOU, SUNSHINE – the fact that we live in a country where 240 years of peaceful transition of power allows us the freedom to shout at each other about sports is pretty amazing, and I am forever grateful for it. After the election, we we still have the freedom to debate whether Dak or Romo should start at QB for the Cowboys. After the election, we still have the freedom to decide who’s going to win the NBA Championship and sneer down our noses at anyone who disagrees, even though it’s November and all of our opinions are ludicrous. After the election, we still have the freedom to argue about the Top 4 of the College Football Playoff (It’s Alabama, Michigan, Clemson & Washington, and if you disagree you’re stupid). After the election, we still have the freedom to do NFL Mock Drafts and act like we have any Earthly clue what the hell we’re talking about while we do them. After the election, we’re all still Americans with the freedom to get up and go to work, or stay home on the couch, wiping Cheeto dust on the pajama pants we’ve been wearing since yesterday, and dive into the comments section on an internet column where Skip Bayless claims LeBron James is not only not a great player, he should simply be taken out and shot. After the election: We’re all still here.
Look, I’m sorry if your side lost, and I’m happy if your side won. More important than anything though, can we all agree that the only people who should leave the country are the ones saying the Indians should trade Andrew Miller? I love this country.
