Politics and sports merge ...

Many of you may have noticed that I've spent a larger portion of my time in the realm of sports lately.

I love sports, but I especially like when sports converges with politics ... as is the case in the following news story:
U.S. Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York are opposed to the Phoenix Coyotes relocating to southern Ontario because it would have a potential "crippling" effect on the Buffalo Sabres, according to WGRZ.
I know that Chuck Schumer has a thing with the Buffalo Bills and keeping them in WNY. But now, he apparently is going to be the a public advocate for the Buffalo Sabres.

Personally, I wish he'd concentrate on the budget, the deficit, the crumbling economy, the war on terror, and other things he should be working on.
