One Real Hero Will Attend Super Bowl LI [VIDEO]

Tomorrow night, the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots will meet in Houston at Super Bowl LI (51). Fox News Channel, Fox Business Channel and Fox broadcast channel are all hyping this like crazy. Mega big bucks will be bet and pizzas will be delivered to our heroes at Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan. The NFL has high hopes, too, for this Super Bowl. People will cheer their gridiron heroes. I will not.

The NFL needs the eyeballs on the screen to show the continued relevance of Pro-Football. They hope the commercials will keep people from clicking. The NFL booked Lady Gaga for the Super Bowl half-time show with the hope that she will do or say or sing something that will generate buzz, good or bad. The NFL just wants the buzz.

Lady Gaga sang the National Anthem at the 2016 Super Bowl

Remember last year at the Super Bowl? Lady Gaga performed the National Anthem without backing vocals (formerly known as LIVE), accompanied only by a piano. She didn’t torture the National Anthem and she was respectful. Forget that. Barack Obama was President last year. This year Donald Trump is POTUS and Lady Gaga probably feels the need to school us rubes in flyover country on diversity, inclusivity and “Love Trumps Hate”. Yeah, that’ll probably be the theme.

Remember half-time at Super Bowl 2016, when Bouncy Beyonce performed and saluted the Black Panthers and those of us offended were racists. Fox News reported:

Five days after Beyoncé’s Super Bowl half-time show in which dancers were clad in Black Panther inspired costumes and one dancer held up a “Justice 4 Mario Woods” sign, the controversy continues to grow. There’s an anti-Beyoncé protest rally in front of the NFL headquarters planned for Feb. 16, a Boycott Beyonce sign-up page, and a social media hashtag #boycottBeyonce that people are using when addressing the performance — from both sides of the issue.

I think Fox and the NFL would love for the Super Bowl half-time show to engender that kind buzz again.

And then there is Colin Kaepernick. Oof. Colin Kaepernick of the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers. Bi-racial Colin Kaepernick. His one named girlfriend, Nessa, turned him on to Black Lives Matter and Colin sat during the National Anthem to protest…well, let’s let Mr. Kaepernick explain it himself.

The NFL negotiated with Mr. Kaepernick and he began to take a knee during the National Anthem. Other players, including some in high school, took a knee in solidarity with Mr. Kaepernick. It is worth noting that Colin Kaepernick continues to cash the checks and spend the greenback dollars of this oppressive country. Me, if I felt a country:

One specifically? Police brutality. There’s people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable. People are being given paid leave for killing people. That’s not right. That’s not right by anyone’s standards.

I would not want the filthy money of that country.

But, then Colin Kaepernick’s name came up at the Fox & Friends Friday morning show. United States Marine Staff Sergeant (Ret.)Johnny Joey Jones is in Houston to watch Super Bowl LI. Staff Sergeant Jones lost both legs as an explosive ordinance disposal technician. Let me repeat that: Staff Sergeant Johnny Joey Jones lost both legs in Afghanistan. Now, watch this video:

About the Berkeley protests, when he was their age, he was in his second war. And, “idles hands for spoiled children turn into violent protests for no reason”. And, he slapped down Occupy Wall Street, paid protesters and Westboro Baptist Church.

But, did he stop there. Oh, hale no.

Colin Kaepernick and his “echo chamber”. Johnny Joey Jones doesn’t have legs, but he’ll stand with pride for the National Anthem. Clearly, Colin Kaepernick is one of those spoiled children that Sgt. Jones mentioned. Do you think that Sergeant Jones only cleared bombs for white people? The people of our United States military are bonded by what they do and not by race, religion or tribal idea.

I won’t be watching the Super Bowl tomorrow because #IDontCare. If you choose to watch, know that there will be one hero in the stands and he will stand on his prosthetic legs for the National Anthem. Colin Kaepernick will be sitting somewhere…else.
