Grand theft auto vs. girls’ soccer

Time to lay down the law!

There will be no illegal soccer on Edgewood’s soccer field!

You know you are tripping over your own ruby slippers in the Emerald City when girls are outlawed from playing soccer on their high school’s soccer field.

A committee of City of Madison pecksniffs voted 4-0 to prohibit sports competitions on Edgewood high school athletic field last night (07-11-19) because the school’s Master Plan itemizes athletic practices and gym classes but does not mention the word “competition.” 

Megan Rapinoe

Take it someplace else, Megan Rapinoe

The private Catholic school argued that Edgewood has been playing sports openly (and the Policy Werkes would add, “brazenly”) for 90 years. But the school’s liberal-progressive-socialist neighbors on fashionable Monroe Street are A.O.C.-militant against proposed lighting and seating for the athletic field. In that, they’ve got the backing of their newly elected alderman, Tag Evers, Progressive Dane.

These are the same people who want open borders, cops out of our troubled high schools, drag queen story hours, and reparations for slavery. But no girls playing soccer!

According to the Capital Newspaper account, Edgewood argued that the master plan labeled the space as an “athletic field.” Would not the ordinary person understand the common meaning of the word to include games? I.E. athletic competition?

This leads to one of Blaska Policy Werkes’ Great Reveals:

There are no ordinary people in the Emerald City!

As with Edgewood’s field, UW-Madison’s Natatorium and Goodman Softball Complex are also zoned for recreation; both host competitions! For that matter, the UW’s Camp Randall Stadium down the road is located in a residential area, as well.

We could suggest that Madison has more pressing issues than girls playing soccer. In the wee hours of Thursday morning (07-11-19), three 14-year-old boys led police from three municipalities on a not-so-merry chase in a stolen car.

The chase began in Fitchburg; a Town of Madison officer put spikes in the road but the thieves kept going until finally conking out near Park Street, where they took off on foot. 

A sheriff’s K-9 dog tracked the last of the miscreants. NBC TV-15 has more.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: At least these three boys weren’t playing illegal soccer.

    Disclaimer: I don’t give a rat’s patoot about the soccer field at Edgewood. From other news accounts it looks like there is more to the story then conveyed on this blog.

    However, I would like to invite Megan Rapinoe to speak to any of our youth sports teams up here in the North. You missed a great chance to meet a real winner. As someone who is pretty outspoken, I’m surprised Dave would pass up an opportunity to meet a kindred soul. Your loss.

      No surprise there!

      “You missed a great chance to meet a real winner.”

      Sooooo, do Real Winners slobber in a monumentally self-centered tone that I Deserve This?

      No, they don’t.

      Egomaniacs, who believe it’s all about them, and them alone, and obviously don’t understand the humility of Act Like You’ve Been There Before are JUST the role model for youth, who’ve already been indoctricated (sic) by fawning, enabling Lefty educators pushing a false brand of self-esteem, to believe it’s all about THEM.

      And the hypocritically phony-to-the-core @hankdog/old baldy would be in an apoplectic, spittle-flecked frenzy were an EVIL White, and God forbid Conservative and/or Christian, Y-Chromosomal Unit, to say exactly the same thing.

      And let’s not forget that Rapinoe, and nearly every other lickspittle Lefty, thinks Northern Wisconsin residents are a bunch of dumb @$$ country f***s. You included, which I won’t disagree with…

      Ah Lefty; so MUCH suffocating ignominy, so little time!

          When faced with Inconvenient Truth, ignorantly unmindful Lefties are reduced to laughable attempts to devalue the communicator.

          don’t get me wrong, I completely understand, it’s a Lefty defense mechanism that tries (in vain) to protect Lefties from becoming embarrassingly aware of their own staggering stupidity.

          WaEx isn’t the only one observing this fact-based reality occurrence; I just linked to them because it would hook an imbecilic Lefty. Made a good call, am I right?

          Anywho; bedrock Conservative sources like Gallup, Siena College ( “a poll of New Yorkers taken between March 10-14 prompted Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg to say, ‘Only 12 percent call her hero, while 38 percent label her a villain.’ ” [bolds mine]), Quinnipiac University , etc. also tracked OCRAZYo-Cortez’ monumental moronity.

          Then there’s fellow New Yorkers De Blasiblow, Blowmeberg, both Cuomos, ad infinitum, ad nauseum, that concede she’s an economic illiterate.

          None of this need bother you at all, your permanently, affixed hyper-partisan Weapons-Grade-Thickened-Industrial-Strength-Hardened Ideological Blinders will flawlessly filter out ALL that real real mean reality.

    One suspects their enthusiastic opposition to high school games in their neighborhoods is mirrored by their support for government housing in everyone else’s.

    Also, the only thing lamer than men’s soccer is women’s soccer. That said, I suggest the best thing for all concerned would be the elimination of the women’s division and unisexing the sport. Thus making compensation equal, while ensuring we would never have to observe this silliness again.

      This is kind of a head-scratcher; Lefty-on-Lefty Porn of the first degree.

      The real real tough Pro Stadium cabal of Lefties have regularly, and in a gutlessly anonymous manner (ala @AnonyBob, @richard lesiak, et al), threatened Anti-Stadium NIMBYS to the point of the latter fearing for their well-being.

      The area is a microcosm of LaLaLoopyLoonyLeftyLand We Know What’s Best For You residents. ~ 14 years ago they tried to steal the Dudgeon School Building from the Madison taxpayers for a measly dollar. C’mon; that whole near west side block for a freakin’ $1.00.

      Turns out they had sweetheart deals in advance for contractors to do the exorbitant upgrades.
