With less than two weeks remaining for people to end relationships and alienate friends and family over which presidential candidate they support, it’s not a stretch to say that most of us can’t wait for this election to be over. However, people can always be just a little bit angrier if we want them to be, and the best way to do that is to simply mix politics with sports. Just look at how some Buffalo Bills fans voiced their opinions of Colin Kaepernick’s ongoing protest of police brutality.

Just as beer drinkers are claiming they’ll protest Yuengling over the owner’s endorsement of Donald Trump, the revelation of how some athletes and sports figures are donating their money to political candidates will most certainly inspire the more rabid fans to shout, “Stick to sports!” for all the world to hear. CBS Sports dug into donation data from opensecrets.org, and the most obvious takeaway is that more sports figures prefer Hillary Clinton.
