    I've noticed that men everywhere are starting to hug each other in public. It seems as if they even do it more than women do.

    When did this start? It needs to stop. A handshake is good enough.

    Great point.

    Athletes are the ones publicly doing this the most. Lately, I've been watching old (60's and 70's) NFL games on youtube. It's eye-opening as to how far the game has gone into reflecting our sunk culture compared to back then. Even the Blacks weren't the same as they act and talk today. All the players nowadays from opposing teams hug each other, laugh, and even exchange uniforms even after meaningless regular season games. I might see it's alright for a quick handshake and very slight, quick chest-high embrace at the end of a hard-fought championship at the end of the season or something. But the games of yesteryear had players whose mentality was seemingly like, "That guy wearing the other uniform is an enemy" and yet without personal hatred or animus to some extent. In today's divided atmosphere and culture, I almost wonder if there is also an anti-White and deliberate racist aspect of Blacks to show fawning preference for each other this way and diss Whitey to some extent, knowing the whole time the cameras are rolling.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm a Bible-believing Christian and loving God and one another are the top commands. However, since football has become more entertainment than a competition everything is seemingly la-tee-da now. Thus, all the hugging and "brutha luv". And that also reminds me of the totally obnoxious mannerisms of today's athletes compared to those I have been watching from the aforementioned era. What's with the dumbass "rapper hand gestures" and crap? I despise that to no end. Men of the past who were athletes behaved like MEN, especially, and even the Black ones on the field of play. Yes, I know, Billie "White Shoes" Johnson started the endzone circus crap in the latter 70's and it's gone downhill ever since, but the sport has changed more than just that and not for the better. The game, the fans, the marketing, et al is a "lesser" product now. I firmly believe that.

    Fashion models falling down. The second one, at 4 seconds, is particularly funny.
