Yes, yes. Sports teams novelty mascots should be like judges... they should stay out of politics lest their impartiality in operating the hot dog gun be questioned. Honestly, no truer words were every spoken: Liberalism is a mental disease.

It’s just sad, and yet one more thing to repel me from pro sports.
