BS, why the hell did we get at each other's throats?
LJ is part of the propaganda wing. Period.
I use to watch every sport there was. I use to scream for the Packers!
Now, it is almost like cheering for the 5th grade class team.
WHEN, do we make the choice?

Not often that I agree with you, but you were spot on with this analogy.
I never understood this hype they put on James, I said "who gives a ?"
The fact is that "many" are not playing sports, "few" are, unless you include kids that are talented, but are never going to make it. It bothers me to think of all the talent that is out there, but not always willing to "play ball".
If we took the same gusto with sports that we would our freedom, we would live in a very different world.
By proposing that sports is a comparison to the relief of depression as opposed getting it together, and filling that void with sports, IMO is the exact same thing.
More people know the stats of sports then the Constitution, or even daily news. To me having an addiction to drugs is sort of the same thing, the difference may be whether you have a job and pay for them, or you rob people for it.
