All in favor of more separation between sports and state, raise your beer koozies and stop millions of dollars from being wasted on bad coaches and old stadiums.
I love sports and so do you. But it’s not right that you and I don’t have a strong say in how our politicians play ball with our money when it comes to renovating Stone Age stadiums or retiring awful athletic directors. I’m calling foul on plays like a Texas judge’s plot to renovate the Astrodome despite strong voter opposition. And I’m hitting the buzzer on schemes like asking taxpayers to subsidize the remaining $5.6 million on University of Texas athletic director Steve Patterson’s contract.

Super Bowl champion and retired NFL center Matt Birk is helping women by bravely speaking the truth.

Everyone wants a piece of 24-year-old Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. Most people settle for a high-five or an autograph. Others ask him to surrender his values, like the young women who beg him for fan photos and then start stripping off their shirts—sending Tebow darting away.
Tebow has All-American character. He espouses capitalistic values that are foundational to America: Competitiveness, ownership, responsibility, hard work, optimism, faith and persistence.
