Costa 1 Nick Costa Bruen-Morningstar English 150 18 March 2018 The Purity of Sports Purpose is the reason you journey. Passion is the fire that lights your way (John C. Maxwell). For many a passion or an obsession is the reason one has the drive to live. Obsessions and passions provide the spark for people to want to live, Maxwell believes that passion is the reason why people want to get up in the morning. Without being obsessed with something in life, there’s nothing to look forward to. Each passion is unique to that individual and is what excites them. One that excites many is sports which has over 107 million viewers each year in the United States (Statista). This writing is going to dig deeper into what demographics tend to enjoy spectating sports and why spectating is such a popular obsession in today’s society. To begin, the demographics for the majority of the people obsessed with watching sports are men who grew up playing sports as a child. According to Paul D. Staudohar the author of the book Playing for Dollars states that “men identify more directly than do women with spectator sport because of their childhood experiences and the macho nature of physical contact games”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
