NOT STANDING FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM
Two can play the game of "freedom."
Everybody by now has probably heard about the football player who refused to stand for the national anthem. My first reaction was: Instead of giving this guy media attention, why not just ignore him?
Now, however, I have read that the whole Seattle Seahawks team may refuse to stand for the anthem—on September 11, no less! That raises my hackles.
Here's what I wish people, season ticket holders included, would do: EVERYONE NOT GO TO ANY MORE SEATTLE SEAHAWKS GAMES AND NOT WATCH THEM ON TV. Let these overpaid, ungrateful athletes have their freedom to not stand—in front of nobody, with nobody watching them on their big moneymaker, TV! If enough people did this, it would hit them in the pocketbook pretty soon.
Two can play at this game of "freedom."
