I can remember being a young child and loving the game of baseball and the world series was always so exciting as Mickey Mantel was bashing the balls out of the park. Back then a man played the sport for the love of it but money has since ruined the game of any sport. Money is what everyone wants and they don’t care what they have to do to be on top.
There is no more for the love of it as steroids have been used to enhance the performance of the sportman. I can no longer look at any great athlete and no for sure their talent wasn’t drug enhanced and that is so sad. Man once was a man of respect and desire to be the best he could be but there are no men left like that as far as I can see. Everyone wants to be rich, everyone wants to be someone they will never be or have things that they do not need.
I’m an old soul with simple wants and desires that are connected to the land and sea as I want nothing more than a handful of earth that has that heady smell of foods that have yet to be grown. I want nothing more than a simple life and if you think that is being a pauper than so be it let this woman be just that, a pauper of the land. There is nothing more exciting than watching a man play a sport, play from the heart and soul.
Where did we go wrong? When did we lose our self respect and desire to be as we are? When did we give into the green of paper and sell our morals down the river? What happened to the man of yesteryear? What happened to the man who loved to play a sport for the simple love of giving his all? What happened to us as a country? A nation? What happened can someone please tell me?
