Do you feel that organized sports is too highly stressed in American society these days?


Why or why not?

    Bravo to Mexico for not including sports (games) with school (learning)! The US is filled with former sports stars from all levels who are disabled and have no other skills. And kids aspire to this against all odds of success and blind to failure.

    (No need to disparage the fact I had to ask the question to start the discussion.) I agree with the meat of what you say. 21st century "Bread and Circuses". But athletes: how much $$ to forever cripple their bodies? Not what they get now, but what?

    Tim, I agree 100%! It's disgusting to watch highly trained athletes destroy their bodies permanently. I'd much rather watch a game of pick-up basket ball at the local playground for free (while swinging, high as possible).Thanks, Tim! Glad we agree!
