Why sports are beautiful
So before I start writing this, I was watching two amazing videos. They were ESPN's Images of the Decade and ESPN's College Football Images of the Decade. They just reinforce why sports are beautiful-the passion behind them are unrivaled. Byron Leftwich being pulled to the line of scrimmage by his linemen, Paul Rhoads' speech about how proud he was to have coached Iowa State to a road upset of Nebraska, the Army-Navy rivalry, sports after 9/11, etc. It makes me proud to be an athlete. We pour our heats out on the field, court, ice, etc and the passions are unrivaled. We're united in our efforts in winning and losing, and that's what makes it so great. Amazing stuff.
