Last may, the Phoenix Suns wore jerseys that read "Los Suns" both to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and to protest Arizona SB 1070. Since the Phoenix Suns are a private corporation, they should have the right to protest the bill. However, I am not so sure that would make business sense. Since it is a sports team, perhaps its fans who support the bill would overlook that protest. It just seems kind of odd to me that they would take the risk of alienating some of their fans, especially when some polls suggested that over 70% of Arizonans supported the bill. It was over a year ago, so maybe most people have forgotten about that protest. I have no idea.
In case anyone is wondering, there is really no reason I am mentioning this now. I just saw something that reminded me of it, so I decided to opine.
