    A sad day for all for whom sports has meant a lot. The drugs, the violence, and the money, always the money. No one is who he or she seems to be. It’s time to leave the stadiums, and go somewhere where each according to our health and inclination leaves all that is spoiled behind, picks up a ball or stick of some sort, and plays amongst friends as once we did.

      People who should know better remain delusional about this brand of entertainment, because that’s all it is:  entertainment.  It would be nice to imbue it with the middle-school playground ethos or 19th century Olympian nobility–but those ain’t happenin.’  It’s show biz, with all that implies.
