MLS' Alejandro Bedoyo Scores Goal Then Yells Into Mic For Congress To End Gun Violence
© Scott Taetsch-USA TODAY Sports
Philadelphia Union winger/midfielder Alejandro Bedoya scored a goal in Washington D.C. against DC United on Sunday night. Then he ran to a microphone on the side of the field and yelled for Congress to do something to end gun violence now...

This is in repose to the mass shootings this past weekend in El Paso and Dayton in which nearly 30 people died.

I see no reason why soccer can't be coed. None at all.

Alejandro Bedoya yells in mic and proves he's an idiot and doesn't have any clue about the Constitution or human nature.

Congress should end Automobile deaths then solve American poverty, homeless, and opioid epidemic. I mean it can’t be that hard...Cure Cancer too so no more deaths by Cancer. I should run, simple stuff!

“If I’m elected, there will be no more deaths.”

Soccer players are so fricking weird

so now mixing politics and sports has gone from BEFORE the game to DURING the game. Shut up and play. Do all the activism you want -- on your OWN TIME. People paid for tickets and are watching the game for ENTERTAINMENT - not to watch you build your SJW cred.

Once again the blame is put anywhere else beside the shooter himself.

So Congress is placing the shooters? Jesus, these celebs and pro athletes should have to live in normal society for a few months a year. Should be mandatory.

They should make it against the law to murder people so there would be no more murders.

...and what does he propose Congress do to end gun violence besides confiscate guns?

and even that won't work, because the guns are already out there and even if the govt took them (in violation of the 2nd Amendment) they wouldn't get them all, and then only the criminals would have them. Sounds like a great solution.

Can't wait to see the snowflakes upset about this one.

it doesn't upset you when athletes insert their own political views into an entertainment event??? It's an abuse of their fame/visibility. If they want to protest or be an activist, that's fine -- just do it on their own time.
