Professional Sports…..Over For Me

 A reprint from my Facebook page…..9/25/17

I’m through with professional sports…. An education was given to these guys, free of charge in most cases, with a four year degree to help them after their days in sports were over. This education provided at the expense of taxpayers, state and federal with them going on to play professional sports and become millionaires with money provided by the viewing American public. All of this free education comes from a country that has tried to provide security for these athletes, freedom for these athletes, a healthy enviroment for these athletes and their familes and yet they cannot stand and honor the country that has provided those benefits for them? Why? If they feel they need to protest something there are many other ways to do that. Visit and speak to schools, churches, corportations and special events to make your points……But do not dishonor the country that has provided so much, a military that has sacrificed so much, for them to be where they are….. I say, “Stand up…..Honor your country….and then organize and protest what you consider to be an injustice”….Until they do that, I’ll not spend any of my money to support them when they do not support our country…
