Because all we need is more politics:
It’s funny. Just this morning, while I was making my way through Eugene Robinson’s ode to the current state of border security, I had ESPN on and started thinking, “Why can’t sports be as tediously, tendentiously politicized as everything else in American life now is?”
Sometimes, my friends, dreams do come true.
The Phoenix Suns will wear “Los Suns” on their jerseys Wednesday for Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals, owner Robert Sarver said, “to honor our Latino community and the diversity of our league, the state of Arizona and our nation.”…
He said that the law calls into question “our basic principles of equal rights and protection under the law” and will cause Arizona’s economy to suffer setbacks at a time when the state is already in economic distress.
First, shouldn’t “Los Suns” be “Los Sols”?
Actually, no. It should be Los Soles.
I wonder if Al Sharpton will be wearing a Los Suns t-shirt for his vigil.
While the fools at the Suns are pushing for support of “the Latin community“
“It’s going to be great to wear Los Suns to let the Latin community know we’re behind them 100%,”
(ah, the benefits of a classical education; I’m sure Classics departments across the USA are emboldened by the Suns’ support), the governor of Arizona received an envelope with white powder yesterday.
