Tonya Harding Tries Censoring Media, Continues Mishandling Success

tonya-harding

Tonya Harding is the absolute epitome of a classic sports motif, because she just can’t handle success at all. Harding, a sympathetic figure in some ways, is not a sympathetic figure in many other ways because she is simply her own worst enemy.

This month has seen the release of the must see film “I, Tonya” and with it a Hollywood hit that portrays her in a much sympathetic light than the media ever did.

Hope Solo running for U.S. Soccer Federation President is about as 2017 as it gets. Only in a year like this, where Charles Barkley was an actual solid sociopolitical analyst (in the Alabama Senate special election last Tuesday) does this make sense.

It’s the world we live in now, and with U.S. Soccer in complete disarray, failing to even qualify for the World Cup next summer, maybe it is time to really shakes thing up.
