San Francisco 49ers, Basketball, and Cleveland Cavaliers: LeBron James Says Colin Kaepernick ls Being Blackballed Out Of the NFL @balleralert zar LeBron James Says Colin Kaepernick Is Being Blackballed Out Of the NFL– blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Sunday, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBronJames showed his support for ColinKaepernick and his fight for social justice. The baller, who has been deemed the “greatest basketball player on the planet,” agreed with the notion that league owners are blackballing the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I love football, but I’m not part of the NFL. I don’t represent the NFL,” James said, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN. “I don’t know their rules and regulations. But I do know Kap is getting a wrongdoing, I do know that. Just watching, he’s an NFL player. He’s an NFL player and you see all these other quarterbacks out there and players out there that get all these second and third chances that are nowhere near as talented as him. It just feels like he’s been blackballed out of the NFL. So, I definitely do not respect that.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Bleacher Report, since Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the Niners earlier this year, 42 other quarterbacks have signed contracts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The only reason I could say he’s not on a team is because the way he took a knee. That’s the only reason,” James said of Kaepernick’s protest of police brutality during the national anthem. The movement began during the 2016 NFL preseason and has since expanded throughout different sports and continued through the 2017-18 season, despite Kaepernick’s unemployment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I watch football every Sunday, every Thursday, every Monday night. I see all these quarterbacks – first-string, second –team, third-team quarterbacks-that play sometimes when the starter gets hurt or are starters that play. Kap is better than a lot of those guys. Let’s just be honest.”

Dad, Family, and God: Joe Biden Talks Potentially Running for President in 2020:"I'm not closing the door" @balleralert Joe Biden Talks Potentially Running for President in 2020: “I'm not closing the door” - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our beloved former vice president JoeBiden sat down with Oprah and TheTodayShow to discuss his new memoir, “Promise Me Dad," as well as his thoughts on running for president in 2020. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Not yet,” Biden said during his “SuperSoul Sunday” interview with Oprah. “Look, I’m a great respecter of fate. I don’t plan on running.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hopes run high for the day Biden announces he’ll take a shot at leading our country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Here’s my problem: You know, I learned how to become one of the most popular elected officials in the United States. Announce you’re not running for president – it’s amazing! Boom, you know, it really gets good,” Biden chuckles. “But I’m asked to speak a lot in political fore, and I’m doing it not nearly as often as I’m asked because every time I’m asked, they translate it into, ‘I’m running for president.’” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, during his interview with Today Monday he said he isn’t exactly ruling the idea out totally. "I honest to God haven't made up my mind about that,'' Biden told Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer. "I'm not closing the door. I've been around too long." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As of right now, the 74-year-old said he’d like to focus on his family and book, which details his journey with his son, who battled brain cancer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He continued: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I can tell you honestly, if the Lord Almighty came down and sat in the middle of the table and said, 'Joe, the nomination is yours but you have to take it now, I would say no,''' he said. "We're working through a whole lot, we're getting there, and I want to focus on my book." Would you be up for Joe Biden running for president in 2020?

Anaconda, Children, and Church: Casket Maker Gives Free Caskets to Victims of Texas Church Shooting @balleralert 361-489-15 Dally 12 12 Casket Maker Gives Free Caskets to Victims of Texas Church Shooting - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The lives lost in the TexasChurchMassacre have touched millions of hearts across the nation. One, in particular, was TreyGanem, a 46-year-old businessman who heard about the shooting and drove 100 miles to Sutherland Springs to give the victims a proper goodbye. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ganem runs a casket design company in Edna, Texas, a small town just east of Sutherland Springs. He and his seven employees build personalized caskets that typically cost about $3,500. However, he's offered to create custom-made coffins for people whose lives were taken that Sunday at First Baptist Church. He currently has 15 requests. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “When I first started five years ago, children burned in a fire in Edna, Texas. I donated caskets to the family. I knew the kids” he told CNN. “It was the most emotional time in my life.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He shared the same sentiments about SutherlandSprings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Immediately my heart opened up and I was like ‘yes, we can do this,'” he said. “It’s a small town. People that felt like they were safe ended up in this tragedy.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ganem's caskets are always personalized and will range from fitting younger victims to older victims. In this case, his smallest is for a 1-year-old girl. The casket maker says he sees what he does as a way to help families get through this depressing time.
