Those who know me in real life will agree that I’m not a sports fan. I sit at kiddush Shabbos morning and nod my head in agreement as the discussion turns to local sports. The extent of my attempts to follow sports are mostly limited to any updates I hear on CBS radio in Chicago and now, due to being in aveilus, what I might hear on ESPN radio. What attention I do pay to sports is only because my 5th grade son is a fanatic and I know that showing some involvement in sports allows the two us to “bond” (even though he’s fully aware that I really know nothing about sports).
So, of course, I was moved to read the mussar that I saw in this post by CJ Srullowitz that you can find here.
