Oops. I’m about to lose computer power for the week, so they’ll be no background readings this week. But, it’s an interesting topic. What I had in mind was:
- Pro sports teams holding up local communities for tax money to help them build stadiums, sell tickets, etc.
- The violence, especially in the NFL and the ultimate fighting gladiatorial bouts.
- The effects on our culture of fabulously wealthy super athlete celebrities and their lifestyles.
- How this harms young people in college athletics.
Anyway, Carl will have the gavel and I hope you all enjoy! See you in two weeks.
