I am sure it is just me, but, I like to see this in sports.
In two separate time slots switching from channel to channel today. I was flipping between games in the NFL and I saw what I love to see. A player gets the best of the other, IE, a hit, a sack, or tackle or score.
I love it when the "SLAMMED" player gives kudos to the guy who upped him. Or vice versea. It is only a game after all. I love to see a tackled guy take the hand of the guy who smacked him. I love to see the love of the game and the recognition that sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, but the love of the game is what you share.
Every time I see this I love it. I love the friendly trash talk. I love watching the competition and the drama. But there is nothing more absurd than treating any sport, amature or pro, than the players thinking what they do trumps world hunger or disease. I love pro football. But it sickens me every time some dumb millionaire points to the sky thanking a sky daddy for his own selfish wealth.
