sunday survey: politicizing the players

October 10, 2009


This weekend I’m in Washington DC to participate in the National Equality March for civil rights. There is a lot to be excited about when it comes to an issue such as gay marriage – and gay rights in general – but it’s always interesting to see where people land on the political spectrum. Who knew my ultra liberal bi-sexual friend from NYU would be against gay marriage? Surprised me.

Here’s this week’s question:

Which player(s) do you think would step out of the athlete box and be an activist for a social cause? Sure, players have delved into doing work as ‘ambassadors’ and such, but who could you see marching on the Capitol in Washington? And what would they be marching for? Who would back Martina, Billie Jean and Amelie when it came to gay marriage? Any of the ATP players? Are there any players who would never step out for any cause? Who?!

Let us know what you think below.
