Now that the Raptors parade is over do they really hafta go to the White House? (Think the Blue Jays went during Bush.)
Can’t stand that unnecessary pomp nonsense; the politics aren’t a factor: if it doesn’t make the competition aggressive or players or the games much better than it needs to go.
Just because we used to do something doesn’t mean we hafta keep doing it.
Hopefully President Trump’s “legacy” such as it is includes ending that outdated “tradition.”
