Like you I am politically involve, but on the other end of the spectrum, and I agree with you 100% that sports and politics should just stay as far apart as possible. ESPN's apparent need to tell me how I should feel about social issues is one of the many reasons I despise that network. I'd rather watch soccer, than hear some political "insight" when I'm looking for sports. I put insight in quotes, because I find that very questionable on that network as well. We're not getting the input from some Rhodes Scholar. Most of their understanding of the issues is on the level of an 11th grader.
