JSC Radio Ep. 50: Stick To Sports


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What’s good people! So, somehow, we made it to 50 Episodes — FIDDY! — of the People’s Podcast. But this one is going in a completely different direction from the rest of them.

For the first 49 shows, most of them have had some kind of intro or compelling hook or fun tag. This one’s a stone cold commentary that goes back to my roots. It’s threefold. I’m defending my friend (Jemele Hill). I’m defending my chosen profession (journalism) and I’m defending my people from the silly scourge of “#StickToSports.” The idea that “sports is an escape from everyday life” is a laughable lie. The thought that we have to “keep politics out of sports” rings hollow when most of the major sports stories of the last 100 years have been “political” in nature — Jackie Robinson, Muhammad Ali, John Carlos & Tommie Smith, The 1972 Munich Olympic massacre, The 1980 Miracle On Ice, etc. — and have shaped the face of sport around the world. To say otherwise is intellectually dishonest and disingenuous.

So here’s Episode 50. A commentary that refuses to #StickToSports.

What We’re Gonna Do Here Is Go Back…

DETROIT (JSC) — Good Thursday Morning people! As #JSC continues to expand and evolve into being more than your average blog site, I’ve decided to debut something new. Well, I mean, it’s new for this site. Anyone who is on Instagram and Twitter knows that Thursdays have become a refuge for a boatload of pictures of people from as far back as the womb to (strangely) as recent as the day before with the wonderfully witty hashtag #TBT, which stands for Throwback Thursday. Welp, on this here site, I shall have a different tack for #TBT here on #JSC. I will not inundate you with pictures of my horribly adorable self as a kid. Instead, I’m pulling out classic movie clips, TV shows, sports moments, commercials, of course music, especially Hip-Hop. As you would expect, that’s where we’re going for the first installment of #TBTonJSC. Let’s Go.
