Thursday night marked the opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang — and of course, it couldn't go off without some controversy:
U.S. flag-bearer Erin Hamlin was chosen (via a coin-flip) to be the nation's flag-bearer. Seems fair enough, right?

More political grandstanding by professional athletes… it’s deja vu all over again! Four Philadelphia Eagles players declared they won’t be accepting President Trump’s invitation to the White House, a traditional honour for Super Bowl winners.
