Sports is for those that don’t want to grow up…

Many will argue that sports teaches invaluable lessons in life: Teamwork, respect, pride, discipline, humility.  But sports also teaches: Narcissism, entitlement, arrogance, and in some cases causes the participants to develop addictions to alcohol, tobacco, and/or drugs.

But why do we love it so much?  Why are so many of us more passionate about a team that has absolutely no relevance or importance on our everyday lives than we are about our jobs, our families, or even our health?

Because it doesn’t want anything from us other than to love it unconditionally and all we ask in return is for it to love us back by winning.  That’s all.
