Sports and the vaccine

Novad Djokovic.

Tennis superstar, Novak Djokovic, is a joke. Because of his refusal to take the Covid vaccine, he has been banned from the Australian Open for three years. It appears that he will be banned from the French and U.S. Opens, also. He is the No. 1 tennis player in the world, 34 years old, and there goes his career! Down and out! He will fade into oblivion. What a fool!!!

Aaron Rodgers.

NFL quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, refuses to take the vaccine, because he thinks it will make him sterile. He is being forced to test for the virus every time he plays. If he and the Green Bay Packers make it to the Super Bowl in February and he tests positive, then he will not be allowed to play, and Green Bay will probably lose the game. What a fool, and such a shame, really, that he is such an ignoramus. The vaccine will not make you sterile!

Nick Rolovich.

Nick Rolovich was fired from his head coaching football job at Washington State, because of his refusal to be vaccinated. He claimed a religious exemption, but it was deemed invalid. So, how will he support his family now? By selling shoes at Macy’s?


My 14-year-old granddaughter, Julia, received two doses of the vaccine last year. She competes in soccer tournaments at a very high level. In 2021, her team won the Hawaii State Cup.


My 11-year-old grandson, Rylan, also received two doses of the vaccine last year. He plays soccer, and in 2020, he won the Black Belt in karate.

The Covid vaccines are not 100% effective, but they do offer some protection against this disease. The vaccines protect you as well as others.

For the sake of their careers, these athletes should take the Covid vaccine.

    I couldn’t agree with you more. Another athlete is basketball player Kyrie Irving. He refused to be vaccinated and can only play in some road games. He cannot play in his home arena nor in the states of New York and California and in Canada. All this misinformation about the vaccine has made the pandemic far worse than it had to be. Get vaccinated and boosted to save the country.

    …if you play a sport, play by the rules!!!

  3. AC Says:

    They followed the wrong information for sure. As for Djokovich, he feel into a lot of woo woo, not just about the vaccine. He may very well get to play the other tournaments when restrictions are lifted. We shall see,

  4. DJan Says:

    I agree with you completely. I love seeing your grandkids looking so healthy and active! 🙂

    So foolish! I have 4 grandchildren living in HI. All 4 have been vaccinated twice. Thank goodness because my 15 year old granddaughter tested positive, then 5 days later, tested negative. When she tested negative, my 16 yr. old grandson tested positive! Just heard yesterday, that he tested negative. (So far the other two are fine). They did not require hospitalization. The vaccine is crucial!

    Beautiful grandkids!

    The question I ask always, is would they have refused all the other life saving vaccines also? Polio, small pox, etc. And obviously none care about the lives of others. Narcissists.


  8. Arkansas Patti Says:

    Totally agree. These athletes really set horrid examples for kids. Glad your children and grands have better sense.

  9. Elephant's Child Says:

    They made their choices and now they are paying some of the penalties of that choice.
    I have less than no sympathy for them.
    Love seeing your active, vaccinated grandchildren.

  10. Beatrice Says:

    I am in agreement with you on this issue, Gigi, and glad that you and your family have been vaccinated. I really do not understand the “reasonings” of why people are against vaccination and if they should fall ill with you-know-what because of this stance, should they receive the same treatment. I know it sounds terrible to voice this, but it makes me wonder . . .

  11. marmeladegypsy Says:

    I have no patience with these anti-vax athletes, or anyone else for that matter.

  12. Doug M Says:

    VERY interesting! Gigi you hit the nail on the head in regards to those professional sports figures–particularly that tennis star, talk about throwing everything you worked for away. Meanwhile, you & David must be so proud of your beautiful grandchildren! Athletes and brains both!

    Smart children and grandchildren to get vaccinated. Our grandkids were so excited to be able to be vaccinated and our granddaughter will be getting her booster. Although they have tested positive for omicron, they haven’t gotten sick. My feeling on all of this, if you refuse the science of the vaccines, then you should refuse the science of the hospitals and doctors when you get sick and need help.

  14. Olga Says:

    If one is not willing to face the consequences of decisions, I have to question the strength of the conviction. For me, vaccination comes down to compassion for others.

  15. Far Side Says:

    Your grandchildren are smarter than many people:)
    I have thought that in order to be treated in a hospital you should be vaccinated…let the unvaccinated die. OR perhaps health insurance companies should not cover the unvaccinated:)

    It´s a crazy subject.
    My teamleader has many a friend, vaccinated, boostered, positive with symptoms, banned to the cellar even, apart from the rest of the family. We are are told to by no means to meet in person.
    It´s so sad.
    One of my customers turns into my friend and I cannot meet her in person.
    Here in Germany they come up with more and more untested vaccines, it´s crazy.
    And then you see (if you want or not) soccer news on TV – everybody, players and fans close to each other, no masks.
    And vaccinated people – as known – can still be spreaders. But are not tested anymore. Crazy.
    I hope we all, as e.g. Sweden, get this under control soon.

    They have made their choice and I am sure they know what to expect. But we do feel sad for them being denied playing in the matches.
