    Here's the play where Hubbard tackles two players. One of them was Saquon Barkley.

    I think today I might take in the replay of the 1999 Super Bowl between the Falcons and Broncos on Fox at 3:00. This was John Elway's second consecutive Super Bowl win. I remember this game fairly well. Mainly caste line ups except Broncos LB Bill Romanowski who was past midway in his career at that point. He was a vicious intimidating linebacker who was one of the best. A real winner. I knew someone who knew Bill very well and he used to tell me he was a fitness animal. Everything down to his diet was extremely regimented. He kept himself in incredible shape. He was ahead of his time. These days a lot of athletes follow strict diet/workout regiments now. Tennis player Novak Djokovic is a maniac in that sense.

    Of course the two main attractions in this game were Falcons rookie Tim Dwight (Andy Isabella is a great comp here) and for the Broncos CM's dad Ed. Dad Ed was just coming off the first of three magnificent 1,000 yard seasons. It is easy to forget that "Easy Ed" was a terrific player in his own right. Rangy with great deep speed he was a favorite of mine. In this game he had a 5-72 stat line.

    And in the 4th quarter with the game out of hand by then, Tim Dwight busted a beautiful 94 yard kickoff return for a TD. His explosion and speed are on full display on his electric return. I was so happy in that moment. A rookie white speedster making his presence felt in the biggest game of them all. He at that point wasn't playing much WR at all. Just like Andy except Dwight was returning kicks. Isabella has been reduced to cutting his nails on the sideline for his rookie season.

    I'll follow that with watching the ESPN special on Michael Jordan's last season. Tonight two episodes of the 10 part series will be broadcast starting at 9:00. The main reason I am tuning in is to see anything related to his teammate Toni Kukoc, one of my all time favorite players.

    I fear the whole thing might sideline Toni but I want to see for myself what they will cover. It could rapidly descend into an exercise in Jordan naval gazing but I am curious to see what it is all about. It was an interesting period in the NBA although nothing could replace the 1980s Bird/Magic era.

    Just watched the first part of that Super Bowl on NBC's sports channel. The 1998 regular season featured two powerhouses in the NFC along with the Broncos, the defending Super Bowl champs, in the AFC. The Vikings, who were super-black (I think just two White starting o-linemen out of 22 starters) went 15-1 during Randy Moss's rookie season with Randall Cunningham at quarterback, only to lose to the 14-2 Falcons in the NFC Championship game.

    The Broncos started 5 Whites on offense -- Elway, McCaffrey and three linemen -- and two LBs on defense, the irrationally reviled Bill Romanowski and Glenn Cadrez. The Falcons had just 3 White starters on offense -- QB Chris Chandler, one lineman, and a lineman who was introduced as the starting fullback in lieu of Bob Christian, who was injured. In addition to Tim Dwight they had Ronnie Harris as another backup WR. On defense they had Travis Hall and Shane Dronet as starting interior linemen, both very, very good. When the Falcons' starting d-linemen were shown on the screen, play-by-play announcer Pat Summerall said, "You don't hear much about them." Gee, how surprising, some things never change.

    Dan Reeves started coaching the Falcons in 1997, and they became more relatively White friendly over time. By around 2002 they had 10 White starters, including five on defense.

    Bob Christian was another of those "fullbacks" who should have been a tailback. The most carries he had in his long NFL career came in 2001, when he had 44 rushes for 284 yards, 6.5 yards per carry. Reeves himself was an "overachieving" tailback with the Cowboys in the 1960s who should have given Christian his due, but for the NFL he passed for one of the better coaches as far as overall fairness.

    Tim Dwight was a rookie in that Super Bowl year. In '99 he led the league in yards per reception when he became a starter during the second half of the season, with 20.9 ypc (Keith Poole was second and Patrick Jeffers was fourth). The second half of the 1999 regular season was amazing, with White receivers running up and down the field and putting up big numbers, led by Jeffers, an unstoppable gazelle, the most fun to watch during my 40 years of closely observing the NFL from an aware perspective. But the next season the "uprising" was promptly squashed. In Dwight's case he went right back to being a backup for the rest of his career. He could have easily been another Wes Welker but with world class speed.

    Despite setting return records at Iowa, making some All-America teams, world class speed, Tim Dwight was drafted in the 4th Round, number 114 overall.

    The Patty Duke Show is a good show. It shows the white family in a positive light. This is the kind of show young whites should be watching.

    The Spanish Princess (2019– )

    More of the same. All the Christians are portrayed as immoral or evil, the Muslims and Negroes are moral and honorable. The English people are portrayed in a degrading and negative way as always.

    They have full-blooded Sub-Saharan Africans playing Moors and Spaniards. There is an especially annoying, unattractive and masculine Negress as the first lady-in-waiting to Catherine, and sadly, she appears in just about every scene, at least in the first episode.

    [​IMG]

    They have the Spanish armies led by Queen Isabella, portrayed by a dark-haired, olive-skinned Hispanic woman in full medieval armor cutting down enemies with the sword. Isabella, who was in real history a very light-skinned woman with reddish blonde hair. Christian women did not engage in combat at that time in history, certainly not Isabella.

    More of the same is right. The whole Making women as warriors is pure fiction created and ramped up by ((Hollywood)). Its beyond tiring at this point. As mentioned there is also a fixation with presenting Moors as full blooded blacks. Thanks for the warning, I'll be sure to avoid this garbage. As I have with most crap they push out..

    Why even watch modern TV shows and movies? Almost all of them are badly written tripe filled with anti-white propaganda.

    There are enough TV shows and movies from the past to last a lifetime. Why not watch those instead?

    Pretty pathetic they have slummed down to remaking Movies from 7years ago. I'll take that as another positives sign in the decline of ((Hollywood)).

    Even more pathetic they can't think of an original script featuring Minority Lead Characters. Instead they have to plug them into roles already well established by a White Character. So not only are they pushing their agenda, they can't even write a competent original script of their own!

    For old-school political incorrectness, the Andy Griffith Show, Season 6, Episode 23 is about a band of gypsies who come to Mayberry and start scamming people until Andy kicks them out of town. The episode first aired on February 21, 1966 - probably close to the final year that something like that would have been allowed to be aired. I've seen many reruns of Andy Griffith but I never saw that episode on TV (I watched it from Amazon) and I wonder if it's been banned from television.

    A few years back I binge-watched a lot of episodes of I Love Lucy and the only black person I can recall on the show was a porter on a train (those porter positions at the time being reserved for black men and considered to be very prestigious and respectable jobs by the black community).

    At this point I find happiness in any TV moment that puts the smackdown on social justice warriors and cuts them down to size. Moments that are becoming increasingly rare.
