OTP 27 Feb. 2017: Become Political

What does it mean to become sick of politics? asks columnist Jonathan Stinson.

I kept seeing random photos of baseball players pop up on my newsfeed the other day. At first, I didn’t think anything of it. Pitchers and catchers have reported for camp, and Spring Training is right around the corner for the rest of the MLB stars and hopefuls.
Then I read one of the posts. It said: “The idea of this is to occupy Facebook with baseball posts to break up all the political posts. Whoever likes this post will be given a baseball player and is to post a picture of that player with this text.”
The effort was no Ice-Bucket Challenge, but it did sum up the feelings of many on the left and the right about the current state of the power struggle that surrounds our government.
