In the true spirit of wokeness, the National Football League is bending over backward to show just how inclusive that it is before the opening of the 2018 season.
With having already shot its credibility with millions of fans by allowing a bunch of racial grievance pimps trash the flag and the troops the league continues to interject far-left politics into what was at one time (and not long ago) a game that unified fans regardless of their race, religion, political affiliation or sexual orientation simply by NOT mixing social justice garbage with football.
That’s in the past now and the league will for the first time participated in the upcoming New York City Pride March.

The NFL and MLB will participate in New York City’s LGBT Pride March for the first time ever later this month.
The two leagues will make their debut in the parade alongside representatives from the NHL, NBA, WNBA, MLS and National Women’s Hockey League, according to OutSports.com.
Former NFL player Ryan O’Callaghan, who publicly came out as gay last year, will be featured on the league’s float. San Francisco 49ers assistant coach Katie Sowers, the NFL’s first openly gay coach, will march with OutSports.com.
The MLB is also planning to send about 200 staffers to the march, including Deputy Commissioner Dan Halem. Former umpire Dale Scott and league executive and former player Billy Bean, who are both openly gay, will also participate.
The NFL will be joined by Major League Baseball (the NBA and NHL already participate) for the grandaddy of all gay parades.

This will be the sportiest Pride March ever.
The National Football League will have a float in the parade that features former NFL player Ryan O’Callaghan, who came out publicly last year. The NFL is also sending O’Callaghan to the Outsports Pride Summit that Friday. Wade Davis, who often works closely with the league to further conversations about LGBTQ inclusion, will also be featured on the float. San Francisco 49ers coach Katie Sowers will march with Outsports as well.
Major League Baseball will feature a huge contingent of about 200 employees, including out former MLB umpire Dale Scott and gay MLB executive and former player Billy Bean. Also on the float will be deputy commissioner Dan Halem. In addition, MLB employees will volunteer at the Pride Run and Youth Pride on Saturday, June 23.
This will be the first time the NFL or MLB have participated in the Pride March.
Returning to the NYC Pride March is the National Hockey League, which is marching for the second consecutive year. The league front office will also participate in the Toronto Pride Parade on the same day, and in the Montreal Pride Parade Aug. 19. In addition, various teams will march in their local parades.
Also marching in New York City on June 24 will be the NBA and WNBA, which started the trend with their joint participation in the 2016 NYC Pride March. The two leagues have set the bar very high, with the participation of NBA commissioner Adam Silver and WNBA president Lisa Borders over the years. Jason Collins will be returning as a featured guest on this year’s float.
Members of the National Women’s Hockey League, as well as Major League Soccer staffers, will also be marching in New York City, alongside You Can Play.
Tennis legend Billie Jean King has been named one of the Grand Marshals of NYC Pride.
As professional sports continues to merge with SJW causes there will soon be no refuge for fans looking for escapism instead being waterboarded in liberal bilge water. The only major sport to not ride a float down the streets of New York City will be NASCAR which will be the target of venomous smears by the leftists.
