SEAHAWKS: Government shouldn’t promote NFL

What is it with local government promoting a for-profit business called the NFL, comprised of millionaires?

I have seen signs by local governments, schools and buses plastered with “Go Seahawks.” I know of local government rallies to be held promoting the NFL.

I don’t see rallies for the profits of Boeing or State Farm in Tacoma. I don’t see the governments rallying for my brother-in-law’s business. Where is his free advertising?

Look around. Local government is promoting a for-profit business whose employees are millionaires. What’s up with that?

If government can’t sing the praises of local businesses, what right do they have promoting a national business?

Go Hawks.
