Sports can be a wonderful thing for young men and women to compete, develop athletically, work within a team and build unity, and develop leadership skills. The accompanying culture of sports fanaticism plays people’s minds and continuously demands their focused emotional attention inning by inning, play by play. Sports fans respond to the constant sensational cycles of competition between individuals and/or teams, and the unavoidable emotional and psychological result of winning or losing. Likewise, sports and the addiction to sports, like many other addictions, is a distraction diverting the attention of the participants from reality to the reality of the game and the emotional and psychological addictive benefits it guarantees.
As the musical chair participants predictably walk in one direction careful not to miss a second or lose attention for fear of losing the game, so also do sports fans figuratively march in one direction; going along with the waves of storylines, latest scores and memes that the sports leagues throw at them on a daily, even hourly or minute-by-minute basis, careful not to miss a score, a game, or a big story.
