My son and I were watching a football game on a Saturday last fall. We noticed the filled stadium, and then we thought about the same thing happening on Sunday. We concluded that, figuring at least 60,000 fans in at least 10 stadiums, the total watching football games on a given Sunday would total at least 600,000 people. We then thought about the same scenario for soccer, baseball, basketball, hockey, etc., and figured that probably at least a million people watch sporting events every Sunday.
As we thought and talked about this phenomenon, we realized that there are a lot of people who worship athletic events. This is a sad situation, and it takes place all over this nation and the world.
