Belt Loops: Jonny Gomes Is A True American, Warren Sapp Is An Awful Tipper

Jared Wickerham

Jonny Gomes wears the best batting practice warm-up, the NSA is watching you, Tim Howard can stop anything, and a an NFL Hall of Fame defensive tackle doesn't like to tip.

July 3, one day before July 4, our nation's 238th birthday. Now I was told by the writer who is doing tomorrow's Belt Loops to not cover anything, ANYTHING, July 4 related. Well I couldn't help myself!!

Jonny Gomes is one of my favorite players in the MLB. He just seems like a guy who would be a great interview. He seems like the type of friend that if you wanted to go skydiving he would pay for everything because he is so into it. After seeing what he wore to the White House to meet President Obama following the Red Sox's World Series run last fall, we should have all been looking forward to what he would wear to support the United States Men's National Soccer Team.

Goodness this is what being an American is all about! Wearing cutoffs, American flag shirts and hitting bombs over the Green Monster.

Now this might be the worst news for us writers here at the Belt. Personality, not into politics at all, but here is the meat and potatoes of what it says. The NSA can watch what we search on the internet. Now why do people have a problem with that? I am not sure, as long as I get to cover University of Toledo football and how we (I say we because I will become a student at UT this fall) are going to roll all over the MAC this season.

The worst I have felt in a long time was around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday night when the ref blew his final whistle when the U.S. lost to Belgium 2-1 in extra time. It was like getting a Belgium waffle in the gut, thrown by Randy Johnson, that's how much it hurt to me. I was into everyone going nuts with their American flags, short jean shorts, and everyone hating the country we were playing. But being America we always find a way to spin it into a positive. Tim Howard was the only reason why we were even in the game. Belgium had over 30 shots. Howard had to save 16 shots, the most by a World Cup keeper in 50 years. The internet exploded with #ThingsTimHowardCouldSave. Here is a list of some of my favorites.

Not everyone was enjoying their viewing party as they watched the U.S.-Belgium World Cup match. Apparently Warren Sapp was getting bad service at a Florida sports bar, and didn't tip his waitress. There is no reason to not tip your waitress! And writing "boys don't tip" on the receipt doesn't make it any better.
