Shooter stopped by...

... a good guy with a gun.

Hats off to a real man [Update: Hats back on]

Updated and bumped: According to a story posted over at Ace of Spades, Villanueva is now apologizing and saying his appearance on the field was more or less an accident. Much different from his previous story. Maybe the guy was yielding to SJW pressure? He's a former Ranger who served in Afghanistan, so I respect him and his service to his country. But if, as he claims now, he was on board with his team's decision, then he has let a lot of people down.

Have we, indeed, become such a pusillanimous people, so fearful of the left's insane and unjustified obloquy, that even our heroes begin to cower?

Alejandro Villanueva, a former Army Ranger and Afghan war veteran, defied his team and was the only Steeler to come out on the field for the national anthem.

His coach offered a rebuke, stating that the team was looking for "100% participation":"Like I said, I was looking for 100 percent participation, we were gonna be respectful of our football team.”

Well, you ignorant prick, what if the team had decided, as a team, to march out on the field under a swastika? Would you be looking for 100% participation, then? You know, so as to be respectful to a lot of millionaire lunkheads who had voted to do something supremely stupid and disrespectful to the fans?

Screw you overpaid, overprivileged drama queens! I hope a couple of years from now you'll have fewer viewers than college field hockey teams.

Maybe this guy ought to think about becoming a lawyer

He's really attuned to the fine print:
When a Maryland community college student saw on his syllabus that he could bring a “3x5 card” to an exam, he saw a key loophole and took advantage of the opportunity.

Elijah Bowen’s professor at Anne Arundel Community College, Reb Beatty, told students that they could bring a "3x5 card" to aid them during the upcoming exam -- but he meant inches.

Bowen noticed that his professor didn't specify metrics and instead brought in a 3x5 foot card, which helped him successfully pass his first exam of the semester on Tuesday in his Financial Accounting class.

Sunday funnies

President Trump practices psychological warfare against Whoa! Fat: "Kim Jong-un lashes out at Trump for getting Elton John’s ‘Rocket Man’ stuck in his head".

Sad news from the National Zoo: "National Zoo Announces Giant Pandas To Divorce".

(From Powerline's "The Week in Pictures")

So, tell me again what this suit's made of?

Dog keeps an eye open for the main chance.

I don't know about you, but I hate surprises

Particularly this kind: "Woman walks into LongHorn Steakhouse in Spotsylvania, gets bitten by a copperhead" (H/T: Mrs. Paco).

That's why Pacos prefer burger joints. Here's a young Paco in her natural habitat:

Happy Feet Friday

They say that when your joints start getting creaky or when arthritis sets in, it's important to keep moving. Well, Doctor Paco is here with a keep-moving prescription consisting of a dose of slide guitar king Elmore James and the Broom Dusters performing "Hawaiian Boogie".
