Why I love sports: I love sports for the competition, the dedication, and the drive you must have to get better.

Why I Love Sports: The pure excitement and anticipation from all aspects of the game, the comradery between teammates and fans, and the common bond that brings people together. You could be at your job helping a customer or waiting on line for a movie, and nine out of ten times, you can strike up a conversation with someone about any sport. There's not many things that have this impact on society.
