Day 355: 88 Billion… Really?

Today a fan of a team who didn’t win sued for 88 billion dollars. While some people might point to this as a sign of what is wrong with sports, I would argue it isn’t about sports. People sue for a lot of reasons. Sometimes the use of  lawsuit is just to bring attention to a situation, but a lot of times it’s not necessarily justified. The problem though isn’t just in lawsuits but in reality is with how people resolve problems and view problems. With so many things we view issues behind labels, such as a sports issue or a race issue or a democrat issue or a republican issue. Sometimes the issue isn’t what we think but something deeper, something that when we throw labels at to attract attention we miss the mark.
