On Sport - Simon Barnes (Mon 28 Jul 2014)

Skaters - Hyde Park / London (Sun 18 Aug 2013)

Simon Barnes (*) writes in Fun and Games Serve Meaningful Purpose (*) on Sport (*):
Sport is one of the ways we can fulfill our human, our animal need for others; to do things together, to share things. [..]

Sport moves on from this to be many other things, sometimes complex and disturbing, sometimes beautiful, sublime, inspiring, humbling, and joyous.

Sport is many things and sometimes feels like all things.

But sport starts with sharing.

The sporting impulse begins in our dread of isolation, in our soul-deep need for contact.
via Why Sport? (*) by Patrick McHugh (*).
