The toy department

A question that answers itself:
“How many sportswriters have you seen on Twitter defending Donald Trump?” asked the baseball writer Rob Neyer. “I haven’t seen one. I’m sure there must have been a few writers out there who did vote for him, but there’s a lot of pressure not to be public about it.”
Just like real life, actually. I recommend the linked article from Bryan Curtis because it confirms something you've most likely sensed for a long time. It also explains why the portsiders who are now firmly in control of the sports media intend to keep things just as they are.

The post-Super Bowl edition of Sports Illustrated had an article about the great championship comebacks this past year, and also tied it into Brexut and Trump's win. Not really in a sneering way, just noting how little we really know.

With most cities heavily subsidizing games like football, how would the games leagues avoid being absorbed into liberal ideology? He who pays the piper calls the tune, really.
