Today’s highly interesting read (07/29/20): To Hell With Professional Sports

Pro sports are returning. Baseball is back.

The NBA season starts Thursday.

I for one am glad to see games again. But I realize not everyone agrees, like columnist Derek Hunter.

At the outset, I have to say that I’ve never been the biggest sports fan on the planet. So it isn’t a big sacrifice for me to say I’m not going to watch professional sports this year, or maybe ever again. I never actively shunned pro sports, and as a kid I wouldn’t have missed a Tigers or Lions game for just about anything in the world, I just found other things to do as I got older. But I’d wander back for interesting games or championships – there are few things a person isn’t directly involved with that are as exciting as a contest between great athletes when the stakes are high. But with the embrace of radicals like Black Lives Matter by all the leagues, I’m going to make a point of not watching any of it.
