It always puzzled me why athletes are more revered in our society than regular joes doing extraordinary things?
Let's face it. Great athletes are treated with God like status and worshipped by people of all ages and backgrounds. We marvel at those with amazing athletic talents who entertain us at overpriced sporting events put on by big corporate sponsors with more money than the GDP of some third world countries.
I don't get it. I grew up playing sports and enjoy watching sports games from time to time on TV, but I think it is very bizarre and strange when some people idolize and glamor at pro athletes and pro sports teams as if they are a deep part of who they are.
Personally, I admire the great ones that are normal folks doing extraordinary things day in and day out. The single mother of four running a career and raising a family, teachers, fire fighters, military troops, policemen, those working 60 plus hours a week yet finding time to vounteer and helping those in need, the list goes on.
It is more likely to find a role model living next door to you than someone you see on TV. We just need to start changing our mindset and appreciate more those living 'normal' lives yet doing great things.
