Simone, the War Against an American Gymnast

At the Rio Olympics, this African American gymnast, who has reinvented the idea of gravity, has changed everything.

Last week at the world championships she was handed low scores by a panel of international judges reminiscent of the Cold War era.

As a 2nd, perhaps 3rd rate athlete myself, (who didn’t want his ass kicked by Cuban boxer Teofilo Stevenson in 1972, I would have looked like an idiot) I recognize those who put it on the line.  They are made of sterner stuff.

It is time we surgically remove the dilettante billionaires from sports, particularly those, and I can name names if required, who like screwing teen gymnasts and skaters.

Or, worse, the MSU scandal, Larry Nassar and his many many defenders, many GOP party faithful, who used big university sports as their private playground.

I recognize some lack of polish with Simone…but then there is the simple fact she can do so many things no one else has done. For more….
