Excerpt from Washington Post opinion piece: Sports games — some of the only events that lead Americans to set their differences aside and sit down and watch together — have become stages for large-scale patriotic theater. This is no accident; many of the militaristic rituals we see in stadiums and arenas across the country were deliberately designed to promote unity during times of crisis. But they’ve stuck around far longer than needed, making sports feel less like pastimes than pep rallies for our military or a particular war.
It really isn't that hot in my opinion, but there is some yahoo on the radio in the background who is so angry that he is saying, "There used to be a time where the professor would be prosecuted for saying something like this!"
