Michigan names Colin Kaepernick as honorary captain

In 2020, following the murder of George Floyd, Harbaugh attended an anti-police brutality protest in Ann Arbor alongside several assistant coaches. He’s been a vocal supporter of the same issues that Kaepernick took so much heat for protesting about, and it’s no mere 49ers coincidence that he would choose this moment to invite Kap to be an honorary captain at a public event for the Wolverines.

Harbaugh’s history as related to Kap’s activism has taken a carefully developed path. When Kap first made headlines for kneeling in 2016, Harbaugh said, “I acknowledge his right to do that, but I don’t respect the motivation or the action.” Only minutes later, he amended his statement, writing, “To clarify, I support Colin’s motivation. It’s his method of action that I take exception to.”

A year later, he amended his stance yet again, writing in an op-ed for Time Magazine,metasports

“At times in our nation’s history, we have been all too quick to judge and oppose our fellow Americans for exercising their First Amendment right to address things they believe unjust. Rather than besmirch their character, we must celebrate their act. For we cannot pioneer and invent if we are fearful of deviating from the norm, damaging our public perception or — most important — harming our own personal interests. I thank Colin for all he has contributed to the game of football as an outstanding player and trusted teammate. I also applaud Colin for the courage he has demonstrated in exercising his guaranteed right of free speech. His willingness to take a position at personal cost is now part of our American story. How lucky for us all and for our country to have among our citizens someone as remarkable as Colin Kaepernick.”

After protesting against racial injustice in the United States by taking a knee during the national anthem in 2016, there was an unofficial NFL-wide freeze against hiring him. He has remained iced out of the league ever since, despite Kaepernick’s public statements that he has been working to remain in NFL-level shape in case a team is ready to sign him.

And while people can argue that Harbaugh isn’t taking a political stance in inviting Kap to the Maize and Blue game, as Kaepernick was Harbaugh’s QB with the 49ers between 2011 and 2014 and even reached a Super Bowl together, the ongoing shun and continued ire against Kaepernick from NFL fans and front offices alike makes it a political statement by nature.

Jamie Oleksiak dukes it out with Keegan Kolesar while the DJ plays “Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

This wasn’t the first fight there had been in a Kraken game since the Oscars either. However, that fight happened in Los Angeles. You’d expect the Crypto.com Arena DJ to be the one to play the Fresh Prince theme during the fight seeing as how the Oscars were held in LA, Bel Air is in LA, and the game was three nights ago, just one night after the Oscars, but that’s what separates the average stadium DJs from the great ones. That fight, which featured the Kings’ Sean Durzi and the Kraken’s Vince Dunn, had no music over it. Like I said earlier, that’s fine. That’s expected, but clearly, the Kings’ in-arena DJ missed his opportunity.

The Kraken’s next game is tomorrow. It will be the team’s second-straight game at home against Vegas. If we’re lucky, we’ll have another fight break out and if the Kraken DJ is as good as they seem, perhaps they’ll have Will Smith’s sample of Grover Washington Jr.’s Just the Two of Us at the ready.

It was a masterful showcase of music choice. You just know the DJ — was it Was that Jazzy Jeff? — had that song in their back pocket for exactly this moment. They waited and waited for the first fight to happen at Climate Pledge Arena since the Oscars and when it finally happened, they were ready!metasports

The in-stadium experience is what makes going to sporting events fun. The energy that radiates from other fans of your favorite team, the mascot’s antics, and fan interaction through graphics on the jumbotron and the in-stadium camera crew make attending a live sporting event an unforgettable experience. The music played in the stadium can have a major effect on the experience as well.

Everyone knows the big, traditional sports anthems like Rock and Roll: Parts 1 & 2 and We Will Rock You that get the fans up and moving. But when a stadium DJ starts getting creative with what they play over the speakers, it can be hysterical and add that much more to the in-stadium experience. That’s exactly what the Seattle Kraken DJ did last night.
