Sunday Five - Have You Ever

This is a gallery of the American Indian in Popular culture, the names and symbols used in branding, marketing, and media.  Cultural appropriation and in many instances racial stereotyping at its worst.  Cleveland has decided on a new name for their baseball team, maybe someday the owners of the Washington Football team will decide on a name, for the currently nameless team.  

This weeks five:

Have you ever?

1: Attended a profession football game/match (no matter what game you call football)? 

2: Attended a major Rock and Roll live performance (and if so what one stands out?) 

3: Attended a professional baseball game? 

4: Been a part of a wedding that was not your own? 

5: Been on the television news? 


My answers: 

1: Attended a profession football game/match (no matter what game you call football)?  Nope 

2: Attended a major Rock and Roll live performance (and if so what one stands out?)  Yes, Kiss in Jacksonville Florida in the late 1970's, my only time. 

3: Attended a professional baseball game? A couple of times in Cincinnati 

4: Been a part of a wedding that was not your own? Once, when I was about 5 I was ring bearer in my Aunt's wedding. 

5: Been on the television news? As a talking head expert a couple of times. 

Please share your answers in the comments.

    2. Ooh, I won’t tell The Kid Brother you asked that question. I was only 4 for 5. Number 1 was a no. High school and university football games and soccer games, but never a pro one.

    2. No and it seems like a hideous thing to do.
    3. What sport is this thing called baseball?
    4. No.
    5. No, but I have been mentioned on radio a couple of times.

  5. I just made reservations for the Frick yesterday. I see it's temporarily in the old Met Breuer building. And I think my friend is making reservations at the Guggenheim today. I joined the Met so I wouldn't have to worry about reservations this time but probably will make them anyway.

    2: Attended a major Rock and Roll live performance (and if so what one stands out?) 2 0r 3 time my favorite being Fleetwood Mac.

  6. 1. Once. Chargers versus Raiders. Hideous.
    2. Not really. I wouldn't waste money going to something if I can't hear the performers because of the screaming.
    3. Once. Padres versus somebody. Immensely hideous.
    4. Bridesmaid in my sister-in-laws wedding. Hideous orange dress.
    5. Nope, unless you count a brief human interest type of thingy. Tap dancing with a group of other 8 year olds dressed as elves in a church Christmas pageant. HIDEOUS!
    Wow, look at all of the hideous things in my life. It's a wonderment that I turned out so very fabulous! *Snicker*.

      Any photos of the orange bridesmaid dress?

      Delete
    3. You're a sick man, Scoot! Yes, I have a picture of two of me wearing the thing. It was actually a orange-red kinda thing, with a shear cape top. The cape had orangey red flowers of some kind. In the pix I look like I've been spatter with tomatoes. Good times.
