Charlie White: it's about the sport
Things happen, you know.
Most of the US delegation to the Winter Olympics is expected to show support for LGBT Rights in protest to Russia's pogrom on gay people because they believe in the Olympic code of respect for all humans, even if the International Olympic Committee (IOC) choses to do nothing about Putin's Putsch.
But our tousled hair ice dancer Charlie White, seen above, has decided not to say anything about Russia's inhumane treatment of LGBT people. "It's about sport, not politics."
What say you, HHoF faithful? Should Charlie and his partner ol' Whats Her Name speak up, or should they aspire to the Olympic ideal of the sport being everything?
