I don’t like to talk politics much, but when politicians inject themselves into the sports world, it’s hard to ignore them.
Besides the tradition of the president honoring collegiate national champions and professional title winners at the White House, there is very little good that comes from politicians nosing around in the world of athletics.
They certainly became a focal point in baseball’s war on steroids. I always thought it was funny, though, that players got in trouble for lying to Congress. Isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black?
