Vice President Mike Pence has had enough. He and his wife, Karen, left yesterday’s NFL game between the Indianapolis Colts and the San Francisco 49rs after about 20 members of the 49ers team took a knee during the national anthem. Pence has been a Colts fan for many years, but sent out a statement that he will not attend any game where there are actions that disrespect our military, our flag, and our national anthem.
It is certainly not alone since a recent poll shows that the NFL is the least liked sport in the country. Its favorability rating has dropped 31% since August and ticket sales and TV ratings continue to plummet.
