The third time’s no charm, either
Just when you thought it was safe to re-enter the sports pages...
Getting a few things off my chest, assuming that didn’t include any of the remaining dark hairs on it, has proved cathartic over the past few weeks. Hopefully, the mention of them has helped relieve a little of your own athletics-induced frustration as well.
Of course, I realize that nothing is ever going to change. Sports in this country — especially when we’re talking about enterprises such as the NFL, NBA, Major League Baseball and even the NCAA—are monolithic. So much money is being made off them by team owners, major universities and professional athletes that doing anything to rock the boat that’s sailing on a clear—green revenue stream would constitute fiscal insanity.
