sports and other pleasant diversions

are not a right.

They're among the rewards of a functioning society.

You don't get that with communism. You get only what the government mandates.

Not a reward either, like a pat on the head for an obedient subject.  Just a product to buy or not. 

But we'd probably not agree on what is a right.

Re: sports and other pleasant diversions

just speaking for myself, the whole pro sports schedules can be cancelled forever and I am not going to have my life altered much or shed many tears.

Probably would feel the same about college, too, and possibly even high school.

I do believe in physical fitness, and there are a myriad ways to get to that without organized sports, and probably at a lower cost and with more participation.

Re: sports and other pleasant diversions

I think some people are more motivated to play sports when they are in a team. It is a personal choice. Why not? As long as this person likes and it's okay with it, then everything is wonderful. In addition, this is a possibility for some people to make money through bets. You make easy money as long as you understand what you are doing and how lucky you are. Now the European League is going, and people are excited to place online soccer betting. Unfortunately, many of them lose their heads and lose a lot of money because they think that if you put a lot of cash into different bets, you will win more, but it is not true.
