On the contrary, I love the troops. I love them in their service to our country and I love the tradition of having them on the field.
Contrast that wonderful tradition that means something with a guy walking around in a giant stuffed animal costume.
When I said we have enough distractions, I meant there's a lot already happening. I also love the cheerleaders, the band, and the flyovers, and so on. I mean that the plate is full and we don't need another thing on the field.
"Distractions" was a bad word choice. I simply couldn't think of a better one at the time.
