Maybe it’s time to stop taking grandpa out with the kids. Well, I don’t know if John Stockton is technically a grandpa, he’s just making conspiracy theories and claiming to have proof of things that didn’t happen – again.
A recurring character in IDEAS OF THE MONTH segment – he made in 2021 IDEAS OF THE YEAR as well as the list – the former Jazz point guard is sure to appear again in the March issue. He’s nearing the point where he deserves his own House of Dragons-style Idiots spinoff.
In one Interview with Spokesperson-Review, Gonzaga alum says some things will give you a brain bleed. He said he just wanted to mind his own business, watch Zags, go home and talk about the games. He said he was really impressed by Aaron Rodgers finding the courage to go against vaccines and “making those statements out to people less fortunate than him.” He said he doesn’t have a background because he doesn’t have any social media. That was after he said he understood he was a public figure.
It’s the opposite of galactic brains; they are more like a neighboring residential area or something more mysterious than a “galaxy”.
And, he said this:
“I think it’s well documented now, 150 people I believe – that’s over 100 dead professional athletes, professional athletes, the pinnacle of their lives, people who died. get vaccinated, right on the field, right on the field, right on the field. . ”
Damn it! Nearly 150 athletes die between games like an episode of The Leftovers or an M Night Shyamalan movie. How the hell isn’t this a bigger story? And why am I writing about Stockton as opposed to investigating the list of dead athletes he claims to have in his possession a piece of cloth?
Well, first of all, his claims are false, and he is also a certified loon.
If you delve into his sources, which I’ve done for research and humor purposes, you’ll quickly find that he cites a fund that cites a research group that cites a lucrative VAERS website. Products. VAERS stands for Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System and the real version is a de facto government website where you can report adverse reactions to any number of vaccines. .
However, in the disclaimer, which people like to ignore, it says, “Most reports to VAERS are voluntary, which means they are subject to bias. This creates specific restrictions on how the data can be used scientifically. Data from VAERS reports should always be interpreted with these limitations in mind. ”
Stockton sources call it “a great site, it’s triple checked, it’s peer-reviewed, they’re stellar with all the medical and non-medical credentials you could ever want” was picked out by a guy with a laptop and knowledge of how Google works in less than 15 minutes.
Next, he would tell me Tru TV’s Lizard Luck Towing was an accurate description of the game’s repo. I know Spokesperson-Review doesn’t have many famous former athletes to interview until Domantas Sabonis retires to the Pacific Northwest, but damn, maybe let’s see what Adam Morrison is up to. (If your guess is “hosting a podcast,” congratulations, you’re a genius and Captain Obvious will be contacting you about your award shortly.)
I understand it’s an exclusive interview because Stockton has been under wraps since he appeared on an anti-vax home video saying equally silly things. However, just because it’s exclusive doesn’t mean it’s worth printing. It’s not quite as dangerous as Eddie Brock interviewing serial killer Cletus Kasady in the new season Venom movie, but it’s like despair. (The carnage kills a lot faster than COVID.)
I have no clue what Stockton is trying to accomplish in this interview because he certainly won’t get his season ticket back anytime soon after those quotes. If he really wants to play such a bad game of Zags, I have a solution. It comes in a jar. You inject it into your arm, it protects you and those around you from a deadly disease, and it certainly doesn’t kill athletes by accident.
