It’s Our Time You’re Wasting
It’s Our Time You’re Wasting
We look forward to the time we can spend watching sports. It's our brief time of escape. When players manipulate that time by stalling or hurrying, they're taking something that belongs to us.

Sport, Competition, and Creatureliness
Ultimately, our games don't matter. When it comes right down to it, neither do we. But this fact, that we are unnecessary in a cosmic sense, is what brings meaning to sport.
SPORTOLOGICALLY SPEAKING
"Our sports are so refined and designed – so rule bound and internally complete, with lore and custom as well as their own rules or law – that they can have the character of cults, those closed-off, self-contained cultures that demand one's total being, one's total assent." –A. Bartlett Giamatti
