Rob Lowe Takes To Twitter To Send A Message To The NFL About Possible National Anthem Protests

The majority of NFL teams will be playing their first game of the season today, 15 years to the day after the single worst day in American history.

Several players have joined Colin Kaepernick’s silent protest to sit during the pre-game National Anthem and its likely that this will be a story that will follow us through the majority, if not the entire season. But please, for the love of God, not today. Today should be about one thing and one thing only: honoring the lives of the 2,996 people who who killed on 9/11.

Rob Lowe took to Twitter to give his opinion on the sitting trend, and I think he speaks for most of us.

Colin Kaepernick’s 49ers take on the Rams tomorrow night, which is good for everyone considering we’d have to hear about any decision he made today until week 9.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
