I understand that the national anthem was not played at sports events (e.g., baseball in 1900) until World War 2, and thereafter no team wanted to be the first to revert to no-anthem sports events. Maybe information about this can be found online.

I've heard the same thing. My point is that it's strange that leftists haven't made a big thing about eliminating it, especially since no one else seems to do it. But then America's leftists are not as multicultural as they think they are, since they know almost nothing about sports elsewhere (which was the basic theme of my book on soccer).
