Sports is an escape – vs – Obama’s invasiveness

Posted by TopOfTheThread on March 21, 2010

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.
