    40 years ago today, Rick Monday saves the American flag. In 1976, the Chicago Cubs played a normal baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at the Dodger Stadium. Bottom of the fourth inning, out of nowhere, a man and his 11-year old son raced towards outfield, kneeled on the grass, spread out an American flag and was ready to ignite it on fire in front of the entire stadium. In the meantime, Cubs center fielder Rick Monday, former U.S. Marine, saw the situation unraveling and bolted towards the 2 protesters. As he put his glove into his left hand, Rick Monday approached the flag and snatched it up with his other hand and continued to run toward the Dodger's dugout. In that moment, the entire stadium united not as baseball fans, but as proud Americans as they cheered and thanked Rick Monday for his heroic act making it the best non-baseball play ever. Rick Monday saved the American flag that day and for that Rick Monday's heroic act became one of the most memorable events in the sport's history, making a unification between patriotism and America's pastime.

    If something like this happened today, imagine watching that clip being replayed over and over and over again on ESPN Sportscenter, FOX, CNN, etc. It's definitely a great thing! A patriotic act happened at Dodger Stadium 40 years ago and went "viral" without the use of internet, smartphones, social media. So again, imagine how much more "viral" it be if it happened today!

    The influence of technology on sports, politics, celeb plays a huge role today. The staggering distribution numbers through platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, YouTube, podcasts, indicate that technology has pretty much consumed our daily lives. As we all should know, the elections are among us and technology could be a ultimate deciding factor in the 2016 Presidential elections. Look how many clips of Republican/Democratic debates, rallies, speeches have already gone viral in 2016 alone! Have you scrolled through Donald Trump's Twitter page?! Candidates are influencing Americans with a simple tweet. Technology and social media have taken over this country, this world.

    Just a random thought I had this morning.
