I'm not writing off sports

I agree that sports does have a place in our society, and I understand why people like it. I just wish we could put the same time, energy, and money into some of the other problems we face, both in society and in our own lives. Even though we have such a horrible economy, people are still willing to spend hundreds of dollars on sports tickets, or spend their entire Sundays watching the games. I'm not saying you or all sports fans are like this, just that it kind of says something when some people can't pay their bills, but sports is still high priority to them.
