OTP 13 March 2017: A Week in Breitbart Sports

DJ Gallo spends a week reading Breitbart Sports so we don’t have to:

I always endeavor to watch sports, if for no other reason than to gain a brief escape from the rest of our hyper-partisan culture. But then I happened to discover that there is something called Breitbart Sports. Yes, Breitbart.com, the flagship website of the nationalistic, alt-right. The angry white man to the New York Times’ old gray lady, the publication whose headlines (and longtime publisher) have somehow come to inform the most powerful and misinformed man in the world, is slinging sports news and takes with the rest of us.

The idea of sport as a uniter made it through the first world war, but could it withstand an association with Breitbart?

How Buccaneers’ Jameis Winston blew away Yankees prospects

Three years ago, Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston said he dreamed of playing for the Yankees.

He had just gone hitless in two at-bats and played left field for Florida State against the Yankees in a spring exhibition game at George M. Steinbrenner Field. He had also just met Derek Jeter, one of his idols about to start his retirement tour.

Now, he’s motivating them—and telling them not to make the same mistakes that he did.

Winston surprised Yankees prospects last week. In a meeting room at the team’s minor league training facility, he walked in and sounded like a motivational speaker, immediately commanding the room.


He talked about determination to the attendees of Captain’s Camp, the team’s yearly top prospect program aimed at building character as much as on-field skills. Winston repeated “no limits” like it was his mantra.

And he told them to be careful about their actions.


He made a lasting impression, several Yankees said.

“It’s not everyday you can talk to an NFL quarterback,” left-hander Justus Sheffield said.
