I agree- except I preferred to watch a meaningless Cubs game where they rested their entire starting lineup

btw- a question..

There have been many athletes previously who have protested standing during the National Anthem -
and yet none of them got even a fraction of the hero-worship or glowing media praise as we are currently seeing.
Why? Mahmoud Abdul Rauf, 1968 Olympic sprinters, Danny Granger, etc..

here's a great article on how the tradition of standing at athletic events for the anthem got started- it involves the CUBS!
