U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski  (R) Alaska, smiles at supporters upon her arrival at Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2010.  Murkowski became the first Senate candidate in more than 50 years to win a write-in campaign.   The victory is a remarkable comeback for Murkowski, who lost to political newcomer Joe Miller in the GOP primary, and a humbling moment for Sara Palin, the former Alaska governor, 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate and Murkowski nemesis whose support was not enough to get Miller through an election in her own backyard.

The shirt, one of several featuring the slogan that have been seen around the league in recent days after a grand jury declined to indict the officer last week, is just one in a long history of political statements made by athletes on the playing field. Here are some others.
