One man has a net worth of $22 million along with an approximately $40-61 million deal with alt-far-left Nike as well, and is recognized as the greatest 28-30 Quarterback (3-16 in his last 2 of 6 seasons) to ever play in the NFL. He also spent his last season protesting the country that enabled him to attain that great wealth (beginning on August 26, 2016 during the last pre-season game, and ending January 1, 2017, his team’s final game for the season). He is also similar to another famous America hater whose mother was a white atheist from Kansas, as they both sought to impress with leftism the black father who abandoned them (although Colin’s wasn’t actually from Africa, just descended).

The focus of our story has a net worth listed at approximately $5 million from a much longer career (19 seasons). He was an above average player (for batting average and HR’s, and is still ranked tied for 265th all-time in HR’s at 241). Luckily we do not judge someone by their material wealth here in the shed, and we shouldn’t in America in general.

“Monday, Monday, sometimes it just turns out that way” — lyric from ‘Monday Monday’, Sung by The Mamas & The Papas, Written by John Edmund and Andrew Phillips.

April 25, 1976 (the year of the U.S. bicentennial) was a Sunday early in the new MLB season, and Rick Monday’s team (the Chicago Cubs) were on the road playing the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. Monday was playing Center Field and had just been warming up with Left Fielder Jose Cardenal in the middle of the 4th inning. Suddenly he saw two males jump out of the stands and spread an American flag out “like a picnic blanket” as he described it. They began to spray it with a can of lighter fluid they had also brought with them, their intent being to light it on fire.

Monday ran over and grabbed the flag and ran towards the Left-field line, ultimately handing the flag to Dodgers pitcher Doug Rau. “Rick Monday… You Made A Great Play…” flashed on the scoreboard as the crowd gave him (a visiting player) a standing ovation. Rick had served six years in the US Marine Corps Reserve as a continuation of his Arizona State ROTC commitment, and later said “If you’re going to burn the flag, don’t do it around me. I’ve been to too many veterans’ hospitals and seen too many broken bodies of guys who tried to protect it.”

The two men were taken into custody. Versions of what happened to them since vary, with one report saying they were American Indians protesting “squatters” taking over America, and another saying the older man was the other’s father and they were protesting the mom/wife being confined to a mental health facility in Missouri. What I heard growing up is that they were Puerto Ricans protesting it’s status as a U.S. Commonwealth. Some have attempted to research the men’s situation post event and been unable to even discover if they are alive today or what happened to either.

The point is America loving Rick Monday (who ended up playing his last 8 years for the Dodgers) rules and America hating Colin Kaepernick drools, and for the record he doesn’t REALLY want to play in the NFL again he just claims he does to keep his name in the news AND his shoes are made by slaves in communist China…just like Apple phones are. Communism and anti-American behavior are passe.
