Phil Mickelson, A Real Pro

  • Colin Kaepernick kneels for flag and anthem. NFL ratings fall.
  • LeBron James talks up China, talks down America. NBA ratings fall.
  • John Cena apologizes for calling Taiwan “country.” China audiences for film “F9” preserved, but will American audiences decrease?
  • Phil Mickelson wins PGA Championship at age 50. Says nothing about politics, talks golf. Ratings skyrocket.

Do you think, just possibly, there is a lesson here? Do you think, just possibly, people are sick of politics and politicians? Do you think, just possibly, people want to enjoy sports, where we all can come together and forget politics, forget race, and forget class? Do you think, just possibly, that people appreciate and respect those who devote themselves to doing one thing really well, and don’t fancy themselves amateur politicians, amateur social commentators, or amateur anything, but are satisfied to be professionals at what they do?

Go, Phil! You aren’t only the oldest to win the PGA Champoinship. You aren’t only a superb golfer. You are a role model of a real pro.
