You know what was strange about the whole weekend during the Pennsylvania Special Olympics at Villanova University? I looked around during the national anthem and not one person was sitting for the anthem (unless they were unable to stand). We look up to football players who make millions of dollars and our athletes in my book have way more class and decency than the athletes we all look up to. I think that is awesome and even though it is the professional athletes “right” to be disrespectful if they want to be, we choose to have class and be respectful of our freedom. Freedom is not free.
