Sports Are Good for America ... No Doubt About It!

It seems like in the post-COVID climate we are all in that everything is being taken away from us ... but at what cost?
Now we are tearing down statues and monuments ... and for what? President Trump feels we should not take away our heritage and history by tearing down sculptures that have beauty, and in many cases, destroy the magnificent work that went into creating them. Those who advocate the destruction need to educate themselves on the history behind what they want torn down.
How do you explain to your 11-year-old that his favorite NFL football team is going to get rid of their multiyear name? Well, Amazon has now pulled all pieces of merchandise that have "Washington Redskins" on them ... and it is all but done now that the team will be changing their name.
One can't help but wonder the fate of the Cleveland Indians team name! Never mind the Chicago Blackhawks!

Have we become so silly as human beings that every little name, symbol, or title bothers us because of a so-called element that is offensive?

Hey, why not change Minnie Mouse's name ... after all, it offends the mice that are smaller in size, and there is no way animal lovers could put up with that ... right?

Maybe we just need to chill a little.

Professional sports is something we need in our world. How many kids would not get the thrill of experiencing their first NHL game? How many kids would be deprived of having a hero to look up to? How many kids would not get a chance to experience a 7th-inning stretch and sing "Take Me out to the Ball Game"?

Having sports is a necessity for many Americans. The camaraderie between families, children, friends and even strangers that comes with attending professional sporting events is needed and would be sorely missed if there were no professional sports.

Sports is something we need in our world. It's good for kids, it's good for families ... it's good for America!
