    I think our nation was more conservative in the first half
    Of the 20th century - before abortion, gay rights and no prayer in schools. Back when our nation was closer to its Judeo-Christian roots!

    The person who said it reads this forum. I didn't want to mention his name.

    There has never been a CE; there have always been pro(gressives) and cons(ervatives).

    1. It is a co-ed sport.
    2. It is a global sport.
    3. It is a "minority-dominant" sport.

    All factors make the fans more left-leaning (in the context of the US sports culture).

    No one said ALL Dems are brilliant, just as not all Reps are blithering idiots . . .
    I personally knew a Republican that could walk AND chew gum at the same time! . . .

    Wouldn't it be better to ask the person that said it?

    Ha! Mayhem to ensure . . .
    By stereotype, Dems are progressives, liberals, people who embrace change.
    By stereotype, Reps are conservatives, reactionaries, people who embrace the status quo (or even a return to 'simpler times' (sic) . . . remember how we treated all people back then? ).

    Change is inevitable, therefore Dems are always in a position to accept that change and Reps are not. Track and field is constantly evolving; records are to be broken (Joe Dimaggio's 56-game hitting streak notwithstanding!) and T&F fans eagerly anticipate that, therefore they are Democrats. [Don't tell lonewolf, who really is a Dem, but insists he's a Rep. I know this because he's always right, therefore he must, by definition, be a Dem :twisted: ]
