It seems that watching sports may be too dangerous to be allowed to continue; at least based on the popular paradigm of banning all things bad. http://health.usnews.com/usnews/health/healthday/080130/super-bowl-fans-should-heed-heart-risk-finding.htm [Broken] Perhaps it would still be okay to allow bowling and darts. In all seriousness, I have always been bothered by the primative and often violent instincts that sports seem to foster. I played a number of sports - was best at football and volleyball, and swam competitively - and enjoyed them immensely, but there is an element of devolution about the whole business. There is nothing more disgusting that watching parents lose it and go into a rage at a little league game. Wasn't there even a case of one parent killing another one recently [within the last few years] in a little league hockey game? I've even heard of parents attacking kids on the opposing team.
