Hey y'all! It is an exciting day at the White House as President Biden & VP Kamala Harris welcome Team USA (summer & winter Olympics)! But first I'm on hand to cover a Black Community Stakeholders Call with Black Olympians. More to follow...
Trey Baker, Senior Advisor for Public Engagement, kicks off the Black Community Stakeholders Call with Wesley Williams, guide for Paralympic sprinter Lex Gillette. Gillette has 5 silver medals in the Long Jump.
The other athletes slated to join the call were intercepted by VP, so hopefully Wesley Williams gets closer to meeting her than this picture.

PS- He has already met President Biden before on his previous trips to the White House.

Plenty of Bullies’ memorabilia inside, too.
Youngsters doing some shooting drills. @ACPressHuba might like seeing a Banks Duck jersey on the ice. Not seeing a Bombay shirt, but that would be nice! 🏒

Alright, time to talk about #MentalHealth. If you haven't followed me for very long, haven't seen my pinned thread, or don't pay attention, it's something that's important to me. If you need a refresher, use the search bar.

With that said, here's my take on Simone Biles. 1/
1. It's a good life rule to not mock someone for having trauma over being sexual assaulted. Great job, guys. You're no worse than leftists who mock unvaccinated people for dying of Covid. When it's gleeful, you're--at minimum--a jerk. Try being assaulted and see how it feels. 2/
2. Did Simone put her teammates in a precarious position? Yes. No obfuscating that. Likely cost them gold. But if she had kept going and continued to fall and flop, we wouldn't have won anything. I'd bet the little money I have that the same people would be trashing her. 3/

Fun fact: I played volleyball against Foluke Akinradewo back in the day (I was a student manager for the Stanford women’s team)

Foluke is the best slide hitter I’ve even seen/played against
The color commentator mentioned that Foluke wears goggles because she suffered an eye injury in college, and added that someone hit her in the face the day she returned from the original injury…it wasn’t me, but I was there when it happened 😬

#Olympics #TeamUSA #volleyball
What always stood out to me about Foluke:
🔸Great listener
🔸Student of the game— learned about attack angles and studied deflections
🔸She approached each drill with a plan— she knew what she wanted to focus on, and she kept at it

Today, as Olympic athletes walked in the opening ceremony, one US fencer, who is in Tokyo, did not participate. That's because he is under investigation for sexual assault.

So why has Alen Hadzic been allowed to compete in these games? We investigated:…
Hadzic, a US fencing alternate, was the subject of multiple complaints to SafeSport, an org set up to investigate misconduct claims against Olympic athletes. He was suspended in June due to investigation, but later appealed, allowing him to go to Tokyo.…
.@MelissaDSegura and I interviewed 30 current and former USA fencers and officials, including three women who have formally accused Hadzic of sexual misconduct, detailing what they say is a pattern of misbehavior and violence going back to 2010.…

Judd Deere shared the following information about President Trump's 1:30 PM call with grocery executives:

❤️🇺🇸 "Today, President Donald J. Trump held a telephone call with more than two dozen grocery store and supply chain executives from across the country.
The President thanked them for the work they have already done to meet the needs of the public and for their continued commitment to the communities they serve. All of the executives are working hand-in-hand with the Federal Government, as well as State and local leaders, to
ensure food and essentials are constantly available. The President reminded the participants that this is an all-of-America approach and each of their stores and the stores they support can help Americans feel calm and safe when shelves are stocked with the items they need.

As 2019 comes to a close, I thought this would be a great time to share my past 10 years in #PxP #playbyplay, a great decade personally when it comes to my work, but certainly a roller coaster ride at times (con't):

2010 - I spent 9 seasons w/ @TheSoundTigers - 1 guy who had a long tenure was Mark Wotton, who never put up a ton of points on the blue line, but he had a knack for OT game-winners like this:

2011 - Love calling fisticuffs-@hockeyfights & @IslesEnforcers know this. @wyshynski & #PuckDaddy ranked this the no. 2 fight of the 2010-11 season: CC: @gally44 & @TheRecker19
