One last post on the Olympics that has nothing to do with who won and who lost.
USA pole vaulter Sam Kendricks wasn’t entirely focused like a laser beam on his attempt on Saturday. If he had been, he wouldn’t have heard the National Anthem being played for someone on the medals stand in another competition.
So he stopped his run.
Let the record show he did not place his hand over his heart and no one is questioning his patriotism.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
