¡Viva Los Suns!

Dave Zirin on one sports team's reaction to 'Show Me Your Papers':

This battle has also been joined in the world of sports. On one side is Major League Baseball’s Arizona Diamondbacks. Owned by state Republican moneyman Ken Kendrick, the team has drawn protestors to parks around the country. On the other side, we now have the Phoenix Suns. On Tuesday the news came forth that tomorrow on Cinco de Mayo, the team would be wearing jerseys that say simply Los Suns. Team owner Robert Sarver said, after talking to the team, that this will be an act of sartorial solidarity against the bill. Their opponent, the San Antonio Spurs have made clear that they support the gesture.

I don't know a damn thing about basketball other than it seems to be a game played mostly by tall black guys, but here's hoping Los Suns kick those Texass's asses!
