Congratulations to Colin Kaepernick, the one-time quarterback in the National Football League who made himself look foolish with his refusal to stand for the national anthem, inspiring so many other non-thinking copycats at all levels of the sport. Kaepernick was named one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people. We haven't seen a clown this influential since Caruso played Pagliacci.
Kaepernick is so influential, he's influenced himself right into the unemployment line. Teams are afraid to even look at him because he's not worth the controversy, even though Kaepernick promises he's done protesting whatever it was that he was protesting.
We remember a bygone era when Time was even more influential than Kaepernick. This was not the way to regain that influence.
