Clippers fans planning Blackout for game 5 at Staples Center
NBC Bay Area – Fans still want to attend the Los Angeles Clippers vs. Golden State Warriors playoff game on Tuesday night – many of them just want to show up wearing black.
A new Twitter handle was created, @ClippersBlkout, urging “Clips fans plz wear BLACK 2 Staples 4/29! “ClippersBlackout.”
Many voiced their support on Twitter. Dan Boate joined a chorus of others saying that “everyone that attends a Clippers game…should wear full black from head to toe. Make it a “Blackout #Unitedas one.” And Josh Margolis tweeted “Clippers fans should black-out their next game to protest their racist owner. #SterlingisARacist.”
Who knew that the first blackout event at the Staples center was not going to involve Dante the Don? This is quickly turning into the biggest sports story of the year, eclipsing the NFL draft despite all efforts by Roger on that one. If you think that silent protest was must see tv after the fact, I cannot wait to see what happens before tipoff tomorrow when they are playing at home with their fans. I think it could legit cause Sterling to croak which really wouldn’t be a bad thing. Hell, Adam Silver should give Ray Donovan a call to make it seem legit.
BTW, Donald’s stick together huh?
“He got set up by a very, very bad girlfriend, let’s face it,” Trump said on FOX News’ “FOX & Friends” (via CBS DC). “She’s called the girlfriend from hell, but what he said was terrible and despicable and very strong action is going to be taken. There’s no question about it. She’s a terrible human being, and he gave horrible answers and disgusting answers.” (via NESN)
Probably not a good look when your biggest defender is this guy:
