Happy Weekend from Advocacy for Fairness in Sports and The Blitz

✊🏾 Athlete Activism:

I most often report on the controversies affecting the world of sports but always enjoy seeing the good athletes do which by far outweighs the bad.  As an animal lover and former rescuer, I thought this was especially cool.


Another endeavor worthy of applause! 👏👏👏
