The Power of Sports

My favorite sport is football. Always has been. Other sports are fun but football is love. To me, it’s the greatest game. To me, it’s the perfect competitive test. Other people love different sports, which is cool too.

What makes sports a central theme and powerful force for so many people — whether playing or watching — goes beyond winning and losing. Like so many things in life, the main value of sports is what we learn about ourselves and others when we push beyond our existing limitations in pursuit of a higher standard.

Records get archived. Trophies get presented. Performances get replayed. Those are just ways to signify something much more important. The power of sports is the experiences they give to us, the behaviors they demand from us, and the beliefs they instill in us.

Embrace the chase. Do the work.
