I have come to believe that sports are the opiate of the masses. Every thing centers around the big game, and I know more young adults in college studying sports management or a similar major. Our local high schools seem to place more emphasis on Friday night football or basketball than they do studies. When a school system needs money they always threaten to cut the sports program. You hear stories of parents on the news who beat up a coach or child on an opposing team who did something they didn't like. People seem to care less about our economy or loosing their personal freedoms as long as they can have their sports. (silly sheeple) I also know parents who know more about their favorite players statistics than they know about how their child is doing in school. I used to enjoy going to pro base ball games, but haven't been to one since the players strike in 86. I would rather spend my leasure and recreation vote $s on other activities. What do you think?
