From Lou Gehrig to Aaron Hicks in Only 82 Years

Baseball has been considered the national pastime in part because its great players exhibited the national character. Lou Gehrig’s 1939 “Luckiest Man” speech is a case in point. Formerly known as the “Iron Horse” because of his durability, he was dying of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, which had progressively ruined his career and was rendering him disabled. He didn’t snivel though. He had the character to be thankful for the great life he had the chance to lead.

It is easy to forget in the Age of Moonbattery, but here is how a man behaves:

Nowadays we have different standards. Left-wing Yahoo Sports tells the tale of a current Yankee:

On Monday, New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks became the face of what so many other Black Americans were feeling.

Distraught at the news that yet another Black man, this time Daunte Wright, had been killed by police in a Minneapolis suburb, Hicks approached manager Aaron Boone and begged out of the night’s lineup…

As you would expect, Boone provided a shoulder to cry on, bleating, “my consideration is with Aaron and his well-being, and making sure that as best we can we support him and try to be there for him as best we can right now.”

A previously unknown criminal is accidently killed while resisting arrest and Hicks can’t deal with the anguish. Instead of trying to earn the over $10 million he will be paid this year, he instead sucked his thumb while contemplating his oppression.

It would be horrifying to think that baseball still showcases our national character. Do the cowards who knelt down in obeisance to Black Lives Matter thugs as they burned neighborhoods, looted stores, and destroyed statues of American heroes represent our generation? Is Aaron Hicks the Lou Gehrig of our time?

On a tip from Wiggins.
