What Had Happened Was: 9/28/16

Oh, you don’t know? We got you.

GAME. BLOUSES.

Fam, we must begin with what happened at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday night, but it has nothing to do with the actual baseball game that was played. Seriously, check out this attempted marriage proposal that went down in the stands and everything that goes haywire:

Fan decides to propose to his girlfriend at the Yankee game. What could go wrong?

#ICYMI

 

Our brother Marc J. Spears spoke to Golden State Warriors players about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s silent protest at Warriors media day, and multiple players said there will be a conversation about a team stance on the issue:

Two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry told The Undefeated there is a “100 percent” chance there will be a “conversation as a team” before the game about a possible uniform “gesture or stance” that may or may not take place during the national anthem.

“I respect the national anthem,” Curry told The Undefeated. “I’ve done a lot of stuff with the military before and I kind of understand, like Colin said, he is not disrespecting them at all. To our family, it does mean something. But there will be a conversation with my teammates, whether we find a way to have a unified gesture or stance, maybe not even during the national anthem, but something that we use that platform. We will see what comes out of that.”
