Thanks to guest columnist Alex Alben for comments in “An unhealthy obsession with sports” [Opinion, Sept. 26].
He points to a few major problems in the sports world that deserve more attention. Then in two brief paragraphs he hints at antidotes to this unhealthy diet, but it lacks any real adequate healthy alternatives.
“Follow the money” has been popular in our culture and in the sports world. That is a powerful problem needing attention and a meek suggestion “to engage in a reality check on our priorities” demands that Alben write another column on this important problem.
