Keith Strudler: Being Richard Sherman

Know this. Professional sports and bravado are related constructs, if not synonyms. There’s a whole lot of reasons for that, starting with the fact that it takes a whole lot of ego to honestly believe you’re the best in the world at anything, much less something that typically involves direct physical conflict. For example, it’s probably tough to be the world’s leading Proust scholar, to steal from Little Miss Sunshine.  And not a whole lot of people know Proust. Imagine believing you can run down the street faster than anyone else. That’s a whole lot of self-confidence behind that blazing speed, which is why watching the promenade towards the starting blocks of the Olympic 100 meter final is like watching peacocks show their feathers. At some point, you better believe it if it’s going to be true.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo delivered his budget address today amid criticism from Republicans over comments about the conservative wing of the Grand Old Party.

Although he later claimed his remarks made Friday were taken out of context, Cuomo's words seemed to remove the "welcome mat" from the Empire State's doorstep. Speaking generally about moderate politicians’ historical power in the state, Cuomo said -quote- that “right to life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay — if that’s who they are, they have no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”
