Reluctant Approval for Ravens Riding in Humvees

The antimilitary animosity that produced a president who would nominate Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense may have infested even the sports media. Yahoo! Sports frets about whether it was appropriate to use military Humvees in the Ravens’ victory parade:

On Tuesday, the Baltimore Ravens traveled to M&T Bank stadium via Humvee like they did after their Super Bowl win 12 years ago. That’s certainly a different look and it’s hard to think of another team riding along in such fashion. …

There might be some [e.g., Kevin Kaduk, who wrote this] who feel uneasy that professional football players are riding in military vehicles while having glory showered down upon them. The football-military comparisons are overdone and inappropriate.

Hopefully Kaduk is only bothered because he doesn’t think athletes deserve the higher honors earned in the armed forces. In the end, he gives the parade his qualified blessing, mainly because the Army–Navy game will be held in Baltimore next year.

Why does the press find anything having to do with the military inherently controversial?

Joe Flacco should lift a different finger to anyone who doesn’t like his ride.

On a tip from Kevin S. Hat tip: It’s About Liberty!

    I think this is just another in a long, long line of attention seeking and/or activity seeking articles. Why be simply clear and factual when you can be controversial, also, and get double the action (eyeballs)???

    A humvee beats a bicycle any day

    @John:

    I hope you asked this question to WaPo before you came here.

    I agree, it is a disgrace.

    Ray Lewis should not be allowed in a Humvee or in any way associated with such an honorable organization as the US Military!!
