Why aren't Pro Sports Treated like Every Other Business?

On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about the subsidies and sweetheart deals government gives to sports teams. Why has our society decided pro sports teams get special treatment? Join us live at 11 or send us an email at feedback@yourcallradio.org. Why do cities and states cut generous deals for teams that they wouldn't with other businesses? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
