Some people have been rather excited about various athletes refusing to stand for the national anthem lately.
Anytime America gets knocked down a few pegs and accused of being racist, these people are happy.
The Washington Redskins and the Pittsburgh Steelers kicked off Monday Night Football and a lot of people wondered where the players on the sidelines would do during the anthem.
The teams stepped up.

From what I could tell, Ben Roethlisberger and Greg Warren held the field-sized American flag. All Steelers standing. Skins ALL held flag.

Major respect for both teams for not putting their personal politics before the country.
