Secretary of Sports by Doug Keenholts


It’s election season, and no matter what side of the aisle you reside on, I think we can all agree that the mailings, robo-calls, and commercials cannot end soon enough.  Every candidate promising this or that, when we know full well 95% of it is simply political posturing.  With all of the positions candidates take a stand on, you would think they would find some that would appeal to the masses -Democrats and Republicans alike.  I have an idea for them:  appoint a Secretary of Sports.  Imagine if President Obama or Governor Romney, in his next stump speech, announced that on his first day in office he would appoint someone to be in charge of fixing all the things wrong with sports in this country?  Would it sway your vote?  While I will quickly concede that it is certainly not the MOST important issue facing our country – I think this is an area where Democrats and Republicans could find some common ground.  In fact, I’d like to nominate myself for the position of Secretary of Sports.  Here is my 10-point plan.  Thank you for your consideration.
