Fox News “Now that the Cleveland Indians have dropped their controversial ‘Chief Wahoo’ logo, should Notre Dame’s athletic teams cease to be called the Fighting Irish and abandon the Leprechaun mascot?
“‘The answer,’ ESPN host Max Kellerman said Tuesday, ‘is yes.’
Kellerman, who also works as a boxing commentator on HBO, admitted that ‘many Irish-Americans are not offended’ by Notre Dame’s nickname and symbolism, ‘but many are.'”
A lot of people talking about Max Kellerman’s take yesterday that Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish logo should be changed and I know what you’re thinking: “no.” But I think we need to dive a little deeper here. Let’s peel off a few layers of this onion before we jump to conclusions.
First of all, I’ll admit that I’m biased here. Ever since his MONUMENTAL take that “Tom Brady will eventually retire”–which, by the way, is still 100% in play–Max Kellerman has been my favorite sports analyst on the planet. He’s a God damn hot take machine. Just pumps em’ out like some high velocity pitching machine. He’s the voice of the voiceless, the mouthpiece for the disenfranchised. Just my go-to source for all things sports/White guilt.
So yeah, this blog may come off partisan but that’s because it is…
That said, I think Kellerman has a point here. He’s pointing out something all you left-wing, anti-military, Hilary dick-sucking snowflake cucks are too soft to admit: Alcoholic Midget Lives Matter.
People are so focused on civil prejudice and rape victims that we’ve completely ignored the 3-foot tall boozebag population. Fake news won’t cover it, our racist president is too focused on grabbing pussy and the economy to bring it up; so guess what, SOMEONE has to wave that flag. SOMEONE has to be the guy to raise his hand and fight for those who are too small and too drunk to speak for themselves. Max Kellerman–and now, me–have officially stepped into that ring and we’re willing to lead with the chin here.
And I know what the alt right is going to say: “But Joe, we’re not racist towards alcoholic midgets/I don’t even see height or alcoholic tendencies/I think ALL lives matter/I have alcoholic midget friends.”
Well guess what, if Colin Kaepernick/Martin Luther King has taught me anything, it’s that just because you aren’t part of the problem, doesn’t mean you’re part of the solution. Anyone can serve in the military or help out underprivileged regions within our country–that stuff is easy. It takes balls to kneel during the national anthem, or wear a shirt that says “equality” to a press conference, or call out the Notre Dame “Fighting Irish” logo in a public forum. Fight on, Max. Be the change you want to see in the world…
