LOTL Sports Take — Athletes Who Became Politicians

One thing that is undeniable about sports is that they are competitive. There are winners and losers, and though fantasy football point totals and Madden player ratings might lead you to think otherwise, sports are a pass or fail exercise. Whether you win by 1 or 50, or lose by 1 or 50, the result is the same. In many respects, politics and elections are the same way. It doesn’t matter whether you win or…
