The NFL's Appalling Lack of Patriotism

ThirdWaveDave posts about his interview with the National Football League on why there was no salute by the NFL -- hell, there was barely a mention -- to our service men and women before, during or after the Superbowl.
I second Dave's questions... Why wasn't there a tribute to our military? How soon they are willing to forget... and I also agree with Dave's take that somehow six color guards during the pre-game show (I only saw the Marine Corps guard) and some personal greetings from some NFL players shown only to the troops does not by any stretch of the imagination constitute a "salute" to our military.
The NFL owed our troops a big thank you. Now they owe our troops an apology.

Mom, thanks for the support. The troops will appreciate it.

And, we just made Hugh Hewitt's site. Again, thanks, Mom.

I, too, noticed the lack of recognition of our troops during the super bowl. Was it just last year that they were so supportive and showed the soldiers cheering on their teams in the wee hours of the morning when they should have been sleeping? Have things changed so much in the last year that recognizing the sacrifice our troops make is no longer the "vogue" thing to do? How truly sad!!
