What is with our country and the importance of Sports? The money we spend building stadiums, paying players, couldn't it be better spent?

Bonnie, I agree. I believe this is a case of putting the em-PHA-sis on the wrong syl-LA-ble, as my mother used to say!

Thing that puzzles me are the big business teams who scam the taxpayers into voting in a stadium that will be mostly paid for by tax money. Only to keep a team in town and let the owners make more money yet. Status symbols maybe?
Above all though is the hooliganism that seems to becoming the norm. Why ? ? ? ?
