@ CK MacLeod:
Never in a million years would I ban sports. I believe in liberty. Liberty includes the right to ignore professional sports. It includes the right to think thoughts that nobody else has ever thought. I am the first person in the world who thinks with enough originality to have discovered that professional sports has no importance and is of no interest.
If a group of businessmen choose to play a series of games against each other, that is their privilege. There is no reason for others to care about it--except to hope that nobody gets injured.
