Essence of Sports

We all began trusting sports heroes.

But Lance Armstrong doped.

And Joe Paterno enabled a coach to sexually abuse kids.

And Barry Bonds became the Michellin Man.

We allowed these people to define sports for us.

But the essence of sports is taking a bike ride with a pal or playing touch football with friends or playing catch with your dad.

For me, that will always be sports.
