Everyone enjoys sports
Addiction to competitive and solitary sports cuts across all social-economic strata and throughout all the demographics. Whether as a passive spectator or as a participant and practitioner, everyone enjoys one form of sport or another. Sports cater to multiple psychological and physiological needs. In this they are unique: no other activity responds as do sports to so many dimensions of one’s person, both emotional, and physical. But, on a deeper level, sports provide more than instant gratification of primal instincts, such as the urge to compete and to dominate. There is always a second chance in sports, often denied us by Life and nature. No loss is permanent and crippling, no defeat is insurmountable and irreversible. Reversal is but a temporary condition, not the antechamber to annihilation. Safe in this certainty, sportsmen and spectators dare, experiment, venture out, and explore.
