Kirsters Baish| The first game of the World Series took place on Tuesday evening, and Major League Baseball proved that they were most American of professional sports leagues.
While the NFL has been quickly losing their attendance and viewers following their string of National Anthem protests, MLB has decided to take a very different approach. Fans of the NFL have made it crystal clear that they won’t be tolerating the disrespect towards our flag and those who fight for everything it stands for. Even President Trump and Vice President Pence had something to say about the anthem protests, and it wasn’t positive.
Now, the NFL has even started a rapid descent from being American’s most favored sport. Back in 2014, football was voted the most popular sport in American for the 30th year in a row.
As reported by ESPN:
In 2014, 35 percent of fans call the NFL their favorite sport, followed by Major League Baseball (14 percent), college football (11 percent), auto racing (7 percent), the NBA (6 percent), the NHL (5 percent) and college basketball (3 percent).
Following a recent poll, it has been stated that football is not as favored as it once was. Baseball is looking more favorable than football at this point, and it has taken the spot as most popular sport in our country.
You would think all of the negative attention and failing numbers would indicate that a change is needed in the NFL, however players are too dense to listen to it. Instead, the NFL seems to be catering to their ungrateful players. They have turned the entire NFL into a political statement rather than a football league.
MLB doesn’t seem to have an issue with being proud of being “America’s Pastime.” They have fully embraced the National Anthem and all that it stands for.

Leftists were less than pleased with the actions of those in the MLB. They were SO offended when people were asked to take their hats off to properly salute the flag.
There is no reason for God Bless America at the ballpark. You don't have to take off your hat. You don't even have to stand.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO REMOVE YOUR HATS FOR GOD BLESS AMERICA.

Apparently being American is disgusting to these Libs too…
Ew, they replaced 7th inning stretch Take Me Out to the Ball Game with God Bless America. The American jingoism is unbearable.#WorldSeries

The paranoia is so great in this new era of McCarthyism, the players are standing with their hands over their hearts for God Bless America. #WorldSeries2017

@FOXSportsPR why do you guys air God Bless America when it only sings to Christians and divides? But won’t broadcast anthem protests??

I find it interesting that the Left HATES to hear anything about God or America and they moan about jingoism and McCarthyism. Leftists today are totally McCarthyites! They are sickened by the mention of America because they find it oppressive somehow? They are trying to get rid of any opinion that isn’t the same of their own all over, especially on college campuses. And we see it every single day in the media. They only report on and push what supports their agenda, even when it isn’t true.
Baseball has not fallen into the abyss like football has, and the MLB is making sure of that by bringing America back and bringing God back. We will not disrespect the flag and this country at a MLB game.
