My country, my team and my home.
Football season is here. Who is your team? What would you do for your team? Born in Chicago and raised in Wisconsin during the summers I was really perplexed on who to root for, the Bears or Packers.
The majority of people have their own team. Or they call it their team. Only the billionaires actually own the sports teams. Perhaps they own the politicians also.
I’m a Democrat and my team cares about everyone. We even care about the billionaires/Republicans even though they are on the other side. The Washington team can’t decide on a new mascot name. And people are adamant about that. They want to keep the old name even though it may offend American Indians. I suggest they rename them “The Americans” and not even call them Washington Americans because their stadium is in Maryland. And a few years back they were thinking of building a stadium in Virginia. It is more of a community team or “The Americans” team?
Picture there are many football teams and at the end of the year there is the superbowl. Now only two teams are left. Who do you root for? They appear to be equal. The teams have similar colors, same pads and helmets and some are friends of the other team. Then there are those who angrily hate the other side. Some hate the owner or the coach and some used to hate the quarterback because he was Black. But, they stood by their team.
Well, they would do anything to win the superbowl. They have loved their team their whole life. The tradition has been passed down from generation to generation. There is no way in the world they will switch teams. No matter what. Sort of like Army vs Navy.
America is divided. Republicans vs Democrats. Neither side will budge. The billionaires are happy. They own both teams and the stadium and all of the concessions. They have it made. By the teams being divided they make more money than ever. What do they do with all that money? Feed the poor? No they think the poor are responsible for their own downfall. Yes, if the poor were to go to school and start their own business then they wouldn’t be crying with a cup in their hand laying on a street corner. Some actually think even those folks are running a scam.
The point is…can you switch teams even though you have always rooted for one team. Can you really vote for a womanizer, liar, unnegotiator and murderer? The song Freebird states “I can’t change”, but, we all can and hopefully we do.
