The upcoming remake of the animated movie “Beauty And The Beast” which is scheduled to be in theaters on March 17, 2017 has drawn some very interesting bad publicity due to one of the characters named LeFou who is the close friend of the main villain Gaston is homosexual.I did see the original animated movie when it came out in 1991 and all I can say is that the live action version of the “Beauty And The Beast” has ticked off some right wing religious persons who vow not to see the movie over the gay character since they are saying what does in the privacy of their bedrooms is their personal business but they do not need to see it showed down their throats in a movie.When I wrote an article for another website on Saturday the reactions was that Christians should mind their own business by telling other people how to live their lives which is fine with me since I do subscribe to the slogan “Whatever gets your ship through the Panama Canal is fine with me.”I do remember in the movie “Rocky III” which came out in 1982 during the rematch between boxer Robert “Rocky” Balboa and James “Clubber” Lang when Rocky’s trainer Apollo Creed kissed Paulie Pennino for a brief second on the cheek as a form of excitement when Rocky was beating up Clubber in the boxing ring that there no complaints from the audiences about that scene.There is an old saying “Bad publicity is good publicity”. Time will tell if the bad publicity over the gay character played by Josh Gad who was on ESPN Sports Center being interviewed by anchorman Stan Verrett recently will give the movie a box office hit or dud when it comes out in 12 days as of this blog. The complaint from a lot of us old school Disney fans is that the late Walt Disney would be rolling in his grave over the controversy of the remake of “Beauty And The Beast” having a gay character.News source is CNN.com and the image is from Pinterest.com
Welcome everyone to another sports blog for Saturday afternoon. Current Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson, 30, who is currently a free agent could be playing football for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2017.A report from Draft Analyst reporter David Pauline says Jackson will not re-sign a new contract with the Washington Redskins since his asking price is out of the range of the Redskins to keep him on their roster due to the teams salary cap.The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could use the services of the former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver on their team to work with their current top wide receiver Mike Evans as the second speedy wide receiver on their team.As Robin would say in the Batman cartoons “There is always the relief pitcher.” Okay so the Buccaneers are not exactly a Super Bowl contending team in 2017 but adding Jackson to their team and paying Jackson his market value salary in the ballpark figure of $12 million dollars makes sense. Jackson started to his football career in the National Football League in 2008 as a second round draft choice of the Philadelphia Eagles out of the University of California Berkeley in the 2008 National Football League Draft.News source is Draft Analyst and the image is from Pinterest.com

Welcome to the sports blog for Thursday. The subject matter is the news that the Tennessee Titans have re-signed their second string quarterback Matt Cassel to a two year, $5.25 million dollar contract extension.Cassel had he not signed his contract extension before the start of free agency in the National Football League which begins on March 9, 2017 would have hit the free agent trial.Cassel, 34, will be the backup quarterback for the Titans behind starter Marcus Mariota for the 2017 regular football season as well as the 2018 football season barring any unforeseen circumstances.Mariota is currently recovering from a broken leg injury during the 16th week of the National Football League season which sidelined him for the remainder of the football season.Cassel started the final game of the 2016 regular season by leading the Titans to a 24-17 win over the Houston Texans.The Titans current quarterback lineup is Mariota, Cassel and Alex Tanney as their third string quarterback.Cassel is not an elite quarterback in the National Football League but he is the best backup quarterback the Titans have right now since the free agent market for quarterbacks during the free agency period in 2017 is not exactly bursting from the seams with many elite veteran quarterbacks looking for work for their new teams this year.
