I am just not the sports fan everybody thinks I am... I missed the Giants big win. Seriously.
So, while I will congratulate them on their win, I can't help but find it sad and hypocritical that NYC can put together and pay for a parade in 2 days flat for a very wealthy, well paid & subsidized sports team (that plays in New Jersey) and refuses a parade for Iraq Vets.
Have any of these guys put their life on the line or sacrificed one iota of what every Iraq vet has given, as a matter of course, to this country?
Mayor Bloomberg cites concerns about televised images of a "Victory Parade"... really? I missed that news...
What about a "Welcome Home and Thank You for Everything" Parade? Iraq vets certainly deserve both the honor & the investment.
