I am quite irked over the current furor over some pro athletes who choose to kneel instead of
KNEEL - v. -
Wikipedia - Kneeling is a basic human position where one or both knees touch the ground. It is used as a resting position, during childbirth and as an expression of reverence and submission. It is possible to kneel with one leg and assume another position (such as squatting) with the other leg.
When does one kneel? When showing respect to a superior. To show submission. Players in HS football "take a knee" when a player is injured on the field.
And one last thing for all you "CHRISTIANS" out there whining about players kneeling during the national anthem:
Christians kneel in church.
