As a first generation immigrant, a Citizen of the United States of America, and a proud father to my first child who is almost a 5 month old boy-man, I feel compelled to not let this day pass without saying this: I stand with #AlejandroVillanueva #78 and all others who stand to respect the stars and stripes.

No matter how it was spun today and the political apologies that ensued, when I saw Alejandro on TV standing alone yesterday, I was reminded of a little children’s song from my childhood that goes something like “Do right till the stars fall, Do right till the last call, Do right when there’s no one else to stand by you!”.

That song moved me as a little boy, and it came back to me when I saw Alejandro standing alone, singing the national anthem, and celebrating another day of being a US Citizen. Alone. How powerful that was! Thanks Alejandro Villanueva for representing that and standing alone to show us and remind us what that looks like – You are a great American Hero and if you could do it all over again, I wish you would do it all over again.

I haven’t always done the right thing, but me and my little boy-man will not be kneeling @ baseball/football/basketball/hockey practice, or ever, when the USA national anthem is playing.

As an immigrant and an American, I say to you kneelers who were born and grown here: Love it or Leave it

PS: I’ve yet to see a North Korean basketball player kneel during the North Korean national anthem.

This SI writer certainly hit it out of the park on the subject of #AaronHernandez

"Hernandez was surrounded by men he had pretended to be. He did not want to pretend any more."

This is solid back & white. This is where that ghetto-fab I'm hard mentality and lifestyle lead. #CHURCH (which ironically is the favorite euphemism from a slimy character of a similar mindset from the TV series "Breaking Bad").

This hearkens back to the real days of old. How many people can remember a time called Pre-Internet? How about Pre-WIFI? Something existed long long ago bringing techies & trekkies together called BBS back in the late 80's early 90's. Read a little about one that I was on called #MUINET   #OLDSTUFF   Where you on a BBS? #Nerd

+Mark Cuban I'm glad that you WANT him to succeed! Props for vocalizing that!!

I remember when someone told the current POTUS that he hoped that he (the President) would fail and the amount of bile that spewed, and still is.

I agree with you now on the below statement and I'm happy that you have come to terms:

"So here we are. We are going through a transition after which Donald Trump will be our President. Have I changed my mind about him ? Not yet. I’m willing to give him a chance. But I still don’t trust his temperament. His tweets are risky in so many ways. That still concerns me. Bigly. But he will be our President and I want him to succeed."
