Mike Lupica, please stick to sports

This past weekend, I grabbed a cold drink, turned on my portable radio to WFAN 660, to listen to some sports talk escapism, and settled into my favorite front porch easy chair with my copy of the Daily News.

I opened to the back of the paper, and began reading about my local teams, and all the world of sports fantasy.

Mike Lupicas comments are always a fun diversion, and one of the articles that I generally  look forward to reading.

I settld in and began skimming his article, when my escapist skimming was jarred back to a harsh reality.

Right in the middle of his discussion of sports, there were political zingers. nasty words about McCain, and Palin, and warm words of support towards Obama.

What is this about!! Does everyone have to be a polarized commentator on world and national Politics. I read the sports section to get away from the combative world of politics. If I wanted to read political opinions and radicalizes angry commentaries about the upcomming election, I would  choose another venue.

Lupica may be a talented sports writer, but how the heck does that qualify him as a political commentator, and why would I care about his political inflamatory comments

From now on I guess I should think twice before looking to relax with the Daily News sports section.

What a shame. Everyone is a know it all.

You know that old low class saying,  opioions are like a– holes, everyone has one,  but most people keep their A H’s to themselves.
