Comments: Quote of the Day

In my case, No, I don't still love them. I always swore I wouldn't be the kind of old fart that talked about how great the old days were, BUT... . I used to love the NBA, but everytime I watch it these days it just depresses the hell out of me. Major League Baseball? The idea that your favorite player might play for your worst enemy next year is so contrary to the sports environment of my youth, I have a hard time looking past it. The Winter Olympics? Lord have mercy, what a load of subjective judging, sob story coverage, and overhyped disappointments. There is no emphasis on character in athletics today, either in the focus of the sports, or the coverage. Even an idle pleasure like sports has a need of character. Not in every case--there will always be exceptions who excel in spite of their personal failings. But do we need to be subjected to an entire sports culture seemingly inhabited by little, little people?
