Social sports

Someone: parent, uncle, grandparent (many times prior to school age)

introduced you to the “thrill” of a social sport. You grew up with it on a radio or TV and thought little about it. Stop. Realize that there’s an artificial “excitement” there. What difference does it really make whether the ball is at this end to the other? Now while you’re stopped, look at the drinking, four-letter language, betting, immodesty, boisterous talk, flirtations.

Is this where you want your obituary to say you were when you died?  Think about it.
