I’ve noticed within the past few years, we unite and bond in sports - more than ever before. Perhaps its cause the US is in in an economic downfall, so its one thing to look forward to. If recession is causing us to become more prideful -as a nation- in things other than money and social status, than KUDOS! Its refreshing and gives us hope in other aspects we lack. Perhaps we are finally learning to live within a happy medium of this new social structure we’ve become.
