Abstract

Imagine the entire world wakes up tomorrow, and the idea of sports—the memories of wins and losses and the tossing balls—has vanished. Besides viewing the massive stadiums planted everywhere as playpens inserted by extraterrestrial forces, what would change? For starters, located all around your house would be sports paraphernalia of humanized animals striking warrior poses, looking vicious and unforgiving. Feeling uneasy, you would move them into an empty closet, lay a blanket over them or completely dispose of them, fearful of what they represent.
