image for Super Bowl Set For A Frenzy Of 'Knee-Taking'

Super Bowl 53 kicks off at 6:30pm (eastern time) this evening, and, aside from all the excitement over the occasion itself, there's massive interest over the prospect of all the players from both teams 'taking the knee' during the playing of the national anthem.

It was three years ago that then-San Francisco 49er, Colin Kaepernick, first went down on his knee to highlight the oppression going on around him in the world, and to represent those who, he felt, 'had no voice'.

Since then, the movement has grown, and players everywhere have taken similar action. Today's game, with its massive, worldwide TV audience, would be a perfect place to broadcast to the globe, the inequality and oppression that exists in the world.

Several players from both the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots have already indicated they will be taking the knee, and it's entirely possible that the whole stadium - players, coaches, referees, and fans - might go down on one knee, to show their support for the oppressed.

Hopefully, fans at home will do the same, if they can get their lardy asses off the couch. Mr. Trump won't like it, but so what?

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
