I don’t know how long I’ll be able to take the Tokyo Olympics.
The Games are barely underway, but I’m already turned off by the annoying political grandstanding.
On Wednesday, our cocky women’s soccer team took a knee just before the start of their match against Sweden. So did the Swedish team and the referee.
Then, as every international soccer fan knows, the Swedes proceeded to crush mighty Team USA, 3-0, ending its 44-game winning streak and making it very hard for our women to win the gold medal everyone predicted they’d win.
Women’s teams from Great Britain, Chile and New Zealand also proved they could be virtuous social justice warriors by taking to their knees before their games started.
I’m not exactly sure what – or who – all these international athletes were protesting.
