This is the clip the guys played on Dennis & Callahan with Minihane Thursday morning. Gerry basically called out the dentist who killed Ceclil the lion for being a complete jagoff, whereas Kirk had zero sympathy for Cecil by virtue of the fact that lions are scary and will eat you and there’s one less one in the world to worry about. I mean, more or less. Those are my words, not theirs but I think that’s a fair characterization.

I guess I come down somewhere in the middle. I don’t want to be a hypocrite. I support hunting and think hunters have a valuable role to play keeping animal populations controlled and protecting the wilderness and so on. And my all time favorite historical figure Teddy Roosevelt, in his post-presidential life, led a safari in Africa that literally killed 1,100 animals, including lions, rhinos, giraffes and elephants, one of whose heart Teddy ate as the bwana of the expedition.

So I’m reluctant to admire TDR while ripping Dr. Walter Palmer for not coming close to putting a dent in the animal kingdom the way the ol’ Bull Moose did. But then again, Roosevelt did it 100 years ago. Times change. Opinions evolve. Species get endangered (thanks in large part to the efforts of guys like Teddy Roosevelt). And I just can’t summon up any sympathy for a guy who flies halfway around the world to stick an arrow in the haunch of some majestic creature just for a good story to impress the cute hygenists at the next A-hole Dentists Trade Show.

One thing I think the morning show guys, you and I can all agree though, is that for Jimmy Kimmel to break down in tears over Cecil on national TV is not a good look. Sad though it was, this was a beast we’re talking about. He wasn’t Walter Cronkite reporting that President Kennedy was pronounced dead at Parkland Hospital. And I say this as a guy who can’t get through “Field of Dreams,” a video of a returning soldier surprising his kids or the DVD of Super Bowl XLIX without sobbing like I’ve been maced. I like Kimmel as much as the next guy, but he’s got to clean that up.

NY Daily NewsJose Canseco has gone from baseball slugger to steroid-stained pariah, now he’€™ll try being a woman — at least for a week.

Canseco will show his support for former Olympic decathlon gold medalist Caitlyn Jenner’€™s decision to come out as transgender by dressing up and living as a female for seven days.

The 51-year-old former Bash Brother admitted he didn’€™t fully understand Jenner’€™s transition at first, but says he’€™s had a change of heart.

“€œIn the very beginning, I didn’€™t understand it, so I was kind of like, against it,”€ said Canseco. “Once I watched it more and more, and realized what it really entailed, what he was going through, I started supporting him. …

“Once it’€™s completely done, I will be dressing up and living as a woman for a week,” he said. “I’€™m talking about full everything.”

The slugger declined to elaborate.

This move is so gracious and magnanimous of Jose Canseco I think he deserves not only our respect, but our applause. I mean, what better way to support Caitlyn Jenner than by dressing in drag for a week? After seven days of kicking around in a dress and high heels, toting a purse around and rocking a wig, and Jose should come away with a perfect understanding of what Jenner’s life has been like.

And by doing so, Canseco has not only raised awareness of the issues faced by all people struggling with identity issues, he’s inspired me as well. I need to be more culturally aware and more sensitive to the experiences of other people. So I’m going to follow his example and in the months to come I’m going to spend a week dressed up as an Australian, a Presbyterian, a Laplander, a deep sea diver, a superhero, a Serb, a Sherpa, a cowboy, construction worker, motorcycle cop, Indian and biker dude. And then after wearing their costumes, I will come away with perfect empathy for all their life experiences. Because that’s how that works.

But first I want to support Jose Canseco. So for one week I’m going to go around dressed up as a ridiculous, washed up, fraudulent, forgotten, third rate, has-been, bankrupt, laughingstock steroid-stained pariah. I’m talking the full everything. So thanks to Jose for building bridges of understanding and making the world a better place.

Is this the starting line of the marathon? The opening of a Black Friday doorbuster sale? The running of the bulls, perhaps?

No. This is what a triumphant, angry, indignant, hacked off, blood-thirsty fan base hellbent on revenge against the sports world looks like. This is the first seconds of the first day of Patriots training camp. I’ve made it down for practices every year since the 90s and I thought I’d never seen the crowds as big, passionate and energized as they were last year. But so far the 2015 crowd makes ones from 2014 look like the line at the Registry of Motor Vehicles.

This is what Roger Goodell and the NFL hath wrought. And if Pats fans are this geeked up for practice … we talking practice … they’re going to be foaming-mouthed berserkers by the time the banner drops on September 10th. So thank you, pro football. You created this.
