    I actually can't wait until somebody somewhere starts to take issue with how misogynistic and patriarchal traditional sumo really is.

    The 2026 World Cup is expected to be hosted by Canada, Mexico and the United States as part of a joint bid and will need federal funding. That's not going to happen until the female players' demands are met, said Manchin. He presented his bill on Tuesday after reading a concerned letter from the womenís soccer coach at West Virginia University, Nikki Izzo-Brown.

    The women's argument is, essentially, we've won more international titles than the men, so we should be paid at least as much.

    Nevermind that the men's soccer field is larger and far more competitive. The US women's soccer team is the best in the world, but if they were to play the best men's soccer team, they'd be demolished. Heck, they would probably be demolished by the second string. So comparing number of titles won is a worthless metric.
    That's a case in point --- write something REALLY nutty, in full bore satire, and the Democrats will fulfill that unintended prophecy!

    I don't think this in itself is a decisive argument because they're really different sports. Like, any college football team that won a national championship would get obliterated by the worst NFL team, but that doesn't diminish the achievement of winning in college football. Many people simply prefer the college game, especially after all the national anthem protests.
