In this article, we explore three cases at the intersection of sports and social studies: the backlash related to Sherman’s 2014 post-game interview with Andrews, the broadcasters of the 2014 NFL Combine, and the Coca-Cola advertisement. We offer some essential questions and a brief idea to guide teaching—a broad overview of the potential for each case within the aims of the social studies.
