Sports and politics have gotten into a bit of a spat.
Championship teams spurning White House visits or having their invitations rescinded; Massive outrage from politicians about athlete behavior during pregame anthems; Everything seemingly coming to a head as U.S. Vice President Mike Pence left an NFL game proclaiming disgust with the disrespect he witnessed.
So where did it all go wrong? Sports and politics have exchanged knowing glances, caressed, and outright intermarried for decades. Now they want to throw things around the kitchen and scream about how their respective mothers-in-law never liked them anyway?
