The recent Super Bowl once again demonstrated how sports obsessed the States and the rest of the world is. It’s amazing how many guys listen to sports talk radio all week, tailgate eight hours before a game, devour the sports section in the newspaper, and stay up to watch SportsCenter every night. There’s only one thing they never do…
Get off their ass and actually play a sport themselves.
They live their whole life vicariously through the athletes they idolize, all the while they put on more weight, raise their cholesterol, and inch closer to their heart attack. But let’s not just pick on the sports fans…
How about you movie buffs? When’s the last time you acted in a play?
And you literature buffs? When are you going to actually write that book, play or poem you’ve been threatening to since the Carter administration?
You rock, jazz, country or blues fans? When is the last time you picked up a guitar, blew a trumpet or pounded the keyboards?
Yes you can enjoy life reading great books, seeing beautiful art in museums, attending Operas and symphonies, watching elite athletes excel, and lots of other entertaining things. But prosperity is not a spectator sport. What are you doing to live it today?
