Right now the world is pretty tough. Wars. High unemployment. Bad economy. Major government and political decisions (like health care reform) being made behind closed doors which is creating a feeling of helplessness in the US. Promises being broken to the citizens of the US (such as transparency).
How do we escape this madness for a few minutes?
Some of us watch sports.
Turn off CNN. Turn off MSNBC. Turn off Fox News.
Turn on ESPN. Watch a game. Watch SportsCenter.
The problem is Obama and politics are now invading that “arena”.
It’s not the orientation. I agree with him on some topics. I disagree with him on other topics. I resent when he has to stick his nose into sports. He has done it many times. A couple of examples… He inserted himself into a broadcast of a Jets game in September. He fills out an NCAA Hoops bracket. Millions of people do it. Who cares?
Please cut it out. Please, please give us somewhere, a safe-haven, to have a little peace and not think about politics and the economy. Sports was it.
