    It is hard to find a person who is not a fan of some type of sport. You have the occasional sport watchers, and then there are the sport fanatics.

    Can sports change someone's life? Certainly. Whether its making a career out of sports (Professional Sports, Writing on sports, or maybe even working for a company like ESPN) or giving you something to look forward to day-to-day.
    A great example of sports changing lives is Hurricane Katrina. After the hurricane, many victims in the southern region of the United States (Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi) were devastated due to either the loss of a family member/friend or the destruction of their home or city.
    These people had nothing to look forward to, until the football season started and many people started to have hope. In the past the New Orleans Saints were a laughing stock of the National Football League, now they are on the top.
    Many players of the team and players of teams around the league were quick to help after the devastation with charities and other ways of helping.
    Winning games gave hope to everyone and a reason to live day to day and that continues today.

    Sports is not just a hobby, it is a way of life and an inspiration

    Being part of a sport teaches you to be a team player. It also teaches you dedication to performing to your best. Unfortunately for some who aren't good at a particular sport it can be a train wreck. If too much emphasis is put on winning and not having "fun playing the game", it can have a negative impact. If only the "best players, get to play", it can also have a negative impact. So in answer to your question, team sports can be a good or bad thing.
