The WNBA Finals is currently taking place between the Los Angeles Sparks and Minnesota Lynx.
I know. I had no clue, either.
Apparently, though, the NFL’s league-wide kneeling controversy has spread to women’s basketball, as the Sparks refused to take the court for the National Anthem.

We just saw the first Major League Baseball player take a knee the other day. I’ve seen reports of a black hockey player thinking of kneeling when the NHL season begins.
I’d bet LeBron James and other NBA stars plan to take a knee when their season kicks off, too.

What’s the end game for these uninformed, unpatriotic athletes? When will they deem the National Anthem worthy of standing again?
