Another sports rant?

Sorry — but April 6, 1896 marks the opening of the first modern Olympic games, in Athens, Greece.

To me, televised sports are a distraction to take people’s (read, voters’) attention from politics and the importance of staying informed through trusted sources. Why can’t we keep sports in the ring, on the diamond, the court, the course, the field?

OK, I’ll admit it; it also pains me when my favorite dramas are in recess so A Sport, Any Sport can take over the entertainment world.

Who’s with me here?
