Sports and money, political money that is

The accbasketblog has a great link to a list of political contributions made by athletes, coaches, owners, sports executives and sports media personalities. The list is broken down into giving to Democrats, Republicans and special interests. The contribution amounts vary widely.

A few surprised me, most notably Muhammad Ali and John Daly. I guess if Jim Calhoun, Jim Boeheim and Dean Smith sat around a table together, an argument over politics probably wouldn't break out, but Lute Olson better not show up. The NFL, MLB and NASCAR seem to lean Repub, while the NBA and boxing lean Dem. I'm surprised more of these guys don't spread around the money a little more.

Check it out.
