Yes, folks. In case you didn’t know it could be done, NFL athletes proved it is possible to honor 9/11 and protest at the same damn!
On episode 74 of All Sports Everything Radio, I kicked off the show by reflecting on the 15 year anniversary of 9/11 and looked back on that tragic day by sharing my personal whereabouts (14:57). Also, I discussed the impact of Colin Kaepernick’s protest picking up steam around the league and country — the continued backlash and the growing support (20:30).
But it wasn’t all Kaepernick. I did face the music and discuss my NY Jets losing its season opener to the Cincinnati Bengals (45:15), while looking ahead to their Thursday night game against the Buffalo Bills. The NY Giants got some love for beating Dallas (58:56), and lots of other NFL talk happened in between and after New York’s home teams were discussed.
Lastly, I wrapped by discussing Allen Iverson’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony (1:21:32).
