It was no doubt an exciting World Series with many memorial highlights, however perhaps the most memorial was the 7-inning of game-7 when LA’s finest came out unto the field and beautifully performed our nation’s National Anthem, “remarkably” without a single player taking a knee.

The brief video clip captures the LA police department’s quartet standing proudly in the infield, singing the National Anthem as the camera slowly pans to the players standing erect, some with their baseball caps placed over their hearts, others with their heads bowed, and still others looking up towards “old glory” an astounding contrast to those million dollar misfits within the NFL, who’ve become nothing more than an embarrassment to both themselves and the league itself.

No doubt there’s a cultural divide between the NFL and MLB, perhaps race does indeed drive the narrative on the gridiron in that the majority of NFL players are African-American, where apparently skin pigmentation makes all the difference in the world, or perhaps it’s the incompetent leadership of Commissioner Roger Goodell, who allowed a substandard marginal player named Colin Kaepernick, to actually run roughshod on him and ultimately the NFL.

Whatever the reason, NFL fans have had enough of million dollar athletes grandstanding on the sidelines, either taking a knee or defiantly raising a fist at the playing of our National Anthem.

Moreover they’ve had enough of listening to cop hater Kaepernick ranting: "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color, to me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."

If anything this World Series will be remembered the moment proud Americans tuning in, or sitting in the stands along with those boys of summer all stood together as patriots along with LA’s finest singing “God Bless America.”

Do you think MLB will once again become America’s favorite sport?
