Sports are a spectacle to behold. It is on the field or in the arena that men and women show the extent of their mettle, where brawn is tested to the fullest, where physique and technique are in display for the world to see. It is where resillience and endurance are put to the test, and where the support of the team and fans create an atmosphere greater than any individual athlete. Sports are a source of entertainment for all. And where there is a show of that, there is gold.
Since ancient times, sports has possessed the aura of theater, giving the crowd a sense of excitement, joy, and sadness. It inspires them to take up the sport that they are mesmerized with, to become masters of it, to inspire others as they have been inspired. It gives them a sense of purpose, to in turn excite the masses and earn their share of bread for it, and stand on the same stage as the most physically gifted human beings in their pursuit of ultimate supremacy and dominance.
