The Washington Rollerball Team

Longtime readers of the KOTCB blog know that I am a lifelong Washington Redskins fan, as was my father and his father and grand-father. Season ticket holders at Griffith Stadium and D.C. Stadium (RFK) during the glory days of "Slinging Sammy" Baugh. George Allen’s Over the Hill Gang and Joe Gibbs championship years with Riggo, The Hogs, The Fun Bunch and Super Bowl glory. We gave up our season tickets when the team moved to FedEx Stadium in RalJon, MD near century’s end because the venue sucked - bad location, design and vibe. What new readers of the Clown Bell might not know is that for years the most popular posting on This blog was a tongue-in-cheek defense of the Redskins name and logo titled: Hail to the Raljon Damn Dirty Apes!



That was 2014 and though my intentions were pure and the advise was certainly read by many loyal fans and, one can only assume, (I hope) the stubby fingered tyrant who currently owns the team none of my suggestions were acted upon. Last year, at long last the team was forced to change its name - not by the owner, NFL or even Barack Obama - by the fucking corporation that owns the stadium the team plays football in - FedEx Field. As a lifelong fan I can say with confidence that no Redskins fan ever uttered the team name as a pejorative or thought of the American Indian as anything but a strong and noble warrior. That doesn’t matter, the wages of wokeness must be paid and that means removing the Indians from all commercial packaging... in a few decades no one will even remember that there were tribal nations inhabiting North America before the Somalian and Chinese immigrants took all the land.

Welcome to the Twilight Zone


What was once the Redskins is now the Washington Football team.  It’s just like the world described in the 1970’s movie Rollerball where corporations own everything and the sports teams take the name of the city which hosts the corporations industry. In D.C.’s case the industry is lawyering and paper pushing with a healthy dose of spying and war. I haven’t watched a pro football game all season but tonight I suffered through the Washington Rollerball teams struggle to defeat the Philly Dirty Birds in a sloppy, error filled performance. What a sad end to the world that was - No amount of Making America Great Again will bring it back to life.

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers. This list

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.
