Modern society dominated by sports

THE ROUNDUP

“We like sportz, and we don’t care who knows / From shooting hoops, to the Super Bowl.”

Those familiar lyrics come from the song “We Like Sportz” by the Lonely Island.

Though the song is satirical, they speak of an interesting point. Society is full of sport fanatics. With major events such as the Super Bowl, the up and coming NBA All-Star Weekend and the recent Auburn-Oregon National Championship game on people’s minds, the question is brought up: should sports have such a prominent role in society?
