Newly elected Republican Rep. David Jolly of Florida, right, poses for a ceremonial swearing-in with his mother Judy Jolly and House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, on  Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, March 13, 2014. Earlier this week, Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink in a special election that Republicans cast as a referendum on President Barack Obama and his unpopular health care law. The Tampa-area district had been considered a toss-up. Jolly fills the open seat that had been held for decades by Republican C.W. Bill Young who died in October. The 41-year-old Jolly has long experience in Washington, first as an aide to Young and then as a lobbyist. Republicans now hold 233 seats in the House to the Democrats’ 199. There are three vacancies. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

LeBron James' 'I can't breathe' T-shirt the latest display of politics on the playing field

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James on Monday night during pregame warmups wore an “I can’t breathe” T-shirt, referring to Eric Garner, who died after a New York police officer placed him in a chokehold during an arrest for selling loose cigarettes. 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.
