You have to do something really bad in order to get people to stop engaging in activities that they love.
For example, a few years ago, three years ago this week, in fact, I was in the hospital for a few days at a VA hospital. I’m fine now, thanks…
Anyway, after a day or two, while recovering from surgery, I was told to go ahead and walk around as much as possible. I would walk up and down the halls of the hospital for a little bit at a time and you would catch the audio from the televisions from the patient rooms. One of the days I was in the hospital…on a Sunday…during football season.
One of the things that you didn’t hear from any of the rooms was an NFL games. They got an entire building full of veterans to swear off watching football. I thought to myself, as I was watching a movie a short while later, there’s no way they could mess things up worse than they have…
A hot mic caught Fox Sports NFL analysts Troy Aikman and Joe Buck disparaging military flyovers before sporting events and apparently praising Democrats who are opposed to such patriotic displays.
Aikman and Buck were getting ready to call a game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Green Bay Packers at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, on Sunday when they outed themselves as just another reason to refrain from watching professional football.
After a patriotic showing from the military aircraft — it should be noted that MacDill Air Force Base is about 10 miles south of the stadium — the broadcasting duo wasn’t pleased.
The pair unleashed a bit of cynical commentary that made you feel like you’d just scratched the surface with regard to learning who these guys really are.
“That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover,” said Aikman, a former Super Bowl-winning quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.
“That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work!” he said as if he were calling a World Series grand slam.
Aikman concluded the commentary by saying, “That stuff ain’t happening with Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll tell you that right now, partner.”
DISGRACE: Joe Buck and Troy Aikman mock military stadium flyovers in hot-mic video.
“That stuff ain’t happening with a Kamala-Biden ticket…”

Sure, the hot mic moment only caught a few sentences of criticism for military flyovers, but the more you listen, the more you hear.
Aikman and Buck didn’t sound like a pair of libertarians lamenting the taxpayer cost of military flyovers.
