An Original, Take-Action Kind of Guy

At 15 years of age, Glenn McDuffie found a friend to forge his mother’s signature so he could join the U.S. Navy in 1942. Three years later, coming off the cargo ship SS Alexander Lillington on August 14, 1945, McDuffie rode the subway to Times Square. He climbed the stairs to street level as New York and the entire country erupted in joyous hysteria at word that Japan would surrender… and that the war would finally be over. The news also meant that McDuffie’s oldest brother, a Japanese prisoner of war, would be coming home.

 

So, McDuffie did what dozens of other red-blooded, American sailors and soldiers did that day. He ran into Times Square. He spotted a pretty, excited, young lady who was dressed in white and was smiling at him (hello, nurse!). And he planted on her an exuberant, celebratory smacker.

Feet of Clay

I just read that Clay Aiken, most notable for being a 2003 finalist in the reality/singing series American Idol, is running for Congress in North Carolina. To be honest, my initial reaction was pretty skeptical. The only things I knew about Aiken could be attributed to the tabloid reports that have periodically popped up online since his Idol days.

 

Aiken has released several albums and made a number of television and stage appearances. In 2008, he fathered a child through in vitro fertilization with a female friend. Later that year he disclosed he is gay. I didn’t think he fit the profile of a typical office-seeker running in North Carolina, a state that appears to be undergoing a conservative shift.

The Anti-Olympics

You know what’s really great about the Olympics? It’s that we can be proud of the individuals that represent our country on the world stage. These are athletes who have literally invested years of their lives in preparation for a couple days of competition in a foreign land.

 

America sends its best – young adults, often teenagers, who have sacrificed, who have dedicated themselves to learning everything there is to know about their chosen events, who have worked relentlessly to perfect their techniques, and who have explored every possible innovation that might improve their performances in their quests to be the best in the world.

 

That pursuit of excellence is so… American.

Stan is the Man

I was chuckling to myself last week when I read what Stan Kroenke did. He changed the perspective of the Missouri governor, local civic leaders and football fans in St. Louis, Missouri.

 

You see, Kroenke is the owner of the St. Louis Rams National Football League team. And, the Edward Jones Dome, the venue in which the Rams play their games, doesn’t quite measure up when compared to the glitz and glamour of other NFL stadiums.

 

The reason this is an issue is because if the St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission (the group that operates the dome) doesn’t provide a “top tier” stadium for the Rams to play in, then Mr. Kroenke has the legal right to terminate his lease following the 2014 season. The definition of “top tier” means that the Rams should be playing in one of the eight coolest stadiums in the league. And they aren’t.

Two years ago in this blog, I wrote about then-NFL quarterback Tim Tebow. Tebow had just quarterbacked the Denver Broncos to a 7-4 finish to the 2011 season and an overtime victory over the favored Pittsburgh Steelers in an AFC Wild Card contest. In his second NFL season, Tebow had enjoyed a remarkable level of success, due in part to hard work and perseverance and in part to a coach who knew how to utilize his athletic prowess… and minimize the impact of his undeveloped (by NFL standards) quarterbacking skills. It was a great ride for Tim Tebow and a lot of fun for Broncos fans.

 

But a few short months after that Wild Card win, Denver signed NFL-great quarterback Peyton Manning to a contract, and traded Tebow to the New York Jets. In New York, Tebow rarely saw the field. Well, he saw it…but from the sidelines. He threw only eight passes and ran the ball 32 times.
