Sports Is Show Business

The basic reason to involve oneself in sports is to seek and maintain healthy body. Recreation comes next.

But in the contemporary society social, cultural, competitive, big business and even political aspects dominate the field of sports. Olympics, world cricket and world soccer events are the prime examples of this phenomenon. Mass participation in sports, especially in poor and developing countries, is being hurt by mass entertainment for sports watchers and enthusiasts.

Sports is a show business, not a preferred involvement in healthy and recreational lifestyle.
