I know that no one here cares. Maybe Keith Olbermann cares about sports. The rest of this community could care less. I've seen it in some recent comments. We all care about laws made in Arizona and Oklahoma, but not about the distractions that take us away from these embarrassments.
I would like anyone who reads this to know that sports history was made tonight. For the first time in the history of the N.H.L., the most storied league in all of sports history, a #8 seeded team BEAT the #1 seed, when the #1 seed was "up" 3 games to one.
The underdog won, against all odds, for the first time ever. To top it off, the team that won, was the winning-est team in N.H.L. history. The Montreal Canadiens, winners of 24 Stanley Cup Championships, beat the Washington Capitals.
Damn non-americans, beating our #1 team. You know, best ever in the history of the world, French Canadian team, beating the Americans.
Wow, imagine if this game was played in Arizona? Would some of the guys playing this game be arrested based on their last name? Foreign sounding last names, different accents, not exactly WHITE skin?
Please pronounce most hockey players names. Not exactly American last names, eh?
I'd love for these "American/America First" folks to go after their favorite sports figures. It is already a fact that the N.F.L. pulled a Super Bowl from Arizona, based on the state's refusal to recognize the M.L.K., Jr. holiday.
Remember that the M.L.B. All-Star game is scheduled for Arizona within two years.
How many M.L.B. Players have Hispanic sounding last names? Hey, AZ police...wanna stop these guys? Men who might have enough money to fight back, and sue y'all? Who might have lawyers, equal to, or better than your own, to fight this unconstitutional law? Wanna fight, we'll fight. Brown people actually are protected under YOUR Constitution.
The professional athletes of the world are not going ignore the ignorance of Arizona, hopefully, they will stand with the rest of us. They will say that this is wrong, they won't let discrimination guide their decisions. They will ultimately see that Arizona is bad for them, it's bad for all of us.
