    Interesting...the first one that really sticks out is Ali...(though understandable to an extent considering where he came from)...

    Very interesting....

    Looks like if you are associated with Nascar you donate 100% to Republicans.

    meanwhile the sports franchise owners, you know- the really, really, really, really rich guys who are the only ones to benefit from Republican tax breaks and economic policy, donate a significant amount more to the dims...

    If you click on them you can see how they've spent their money. BB just donated to some local GOP guy in Ohio, I believe...so that "100%" is pretty misleading.

    Elway, Aikman and Manning, on the other hand....

    Well, you're wrong. 100% implies all of it and the Frances give heavily to both parties.

    Looks like the lesbians are 0% for Republicans though. Too bad. I love Billie Jean King.

    Most of the guys with brains on the list go Republican. There is no disputing that.

    A Billie Jean King porno would scare me from bonerdom for at least a week. Maybe longer.
