Happy Cinco de Mayo by the way!
In political sports news, Arizona team, the Phoenix Suns announced Tuesday that the team will be wearing a jersey that reads "Los Suns" during tonight’s playoff game to voice the team's disapproval for Arizona's tough new immigration law. Robert Sarver, the team's managing partner, said in a statement, "The frustration with the federal government's failure to deal with the issue of illegal immigration resulted in passage of a flawed state law.” Suns point guard Steve Nash is also critical of the law, calling it "very misguided." Politico notes that the Suns are not the only Arizona team getting pulled into the political debate, the Arizona Diamondbacks have been heckled during MLB games over the law, and organizations like MoveOn.org have called on the league to move the 2011 All-Star game out of Phoenix.
But why wouldn't the Suns make the jerseys say "Los Soles" instead? "Los Suns" is Spanglish. ¿Si?
