The former associate vice chan-
cellor for development and alumni
affairs and former president of ECU
Medical Foundation, is appealing ac-
tions that he claims were taken by
Chancellor Richard R. Eakin to force
him to resign from his position on
Dec. 22, 1995.
"Dr. Robert K. Adams was told
that he would be terminated if he
didn't resign said Adams' attorney,
Jeffrey L. Miller.
Miller said he has submitted a
document entitled "Grievance. Pe-
tition for Review and Appeal which
describes Adams' position in the dis-
pute, to the chancellor, the
chancellor's attorney and the board
of trustees. He said that the board
will review it and decide if there are
any grounds or reasons for dis-
"We are hopeful that the board
of trustees will agree with our posi-
tion and that Adams will be vin-
dicated Miller said.
"Adams denies that he was
engaged in any conduct that would
justify his dismissal Miller said.
Ben Irons, university attorney,
said he received the petition for re-
view from a board of trustees sub-
committee on Jan. 22 and has been
asked to respond within 15 days.
He said he intends to do so.
"It is the university's position

Speakers deliver AIDS message
HIV facts, statistics,
practicing safe sex
Tuesday evening two speakers
drew a large audience to Wright Au-
ditorium where they presented.
"Friendship in the age of AIDS
The presentation was about the
HIV virus and how it can effect us
as college students.
Alpha Omicron Pi sponsored
this event given by Joel Goldman,
who is HIV positive, and his best
friend T.J. Sullivan. The two met
while attending Indiana University
and now travel to different univer-
sities telling their story.
The presentation began with
clips from a film showing the AIDS
Quilt, while in Washington DC. The
song played during the film said,
"We're all in this together
Sullivan then began to speak
on how HIV fit into his life and how
he met his friend Joel over 10 years
ago. Since college, they had always
kept in touch and one afternoon
Joel had called him at work.
"I don't remember the exact
words that he said in the next few
minutes, but for the first time in
my life one of my very best fi lends
told me he was HIV positive
Sullivan said. "When one of your
best friends calls you and tells you
something like that, you suddenly
realize that you don't know any-
thing that you need to know at all
Goldman then came onto the
stage and told the audience a bit
about his background and his fam-
ily. A hard lesson that he has
learned is not to mix sex and alco-
hol. The decisions you make with
your partner when you've been
drinking can have a life long effect
on you both.

When Goldman came to terms
with the fact he was HIV positive,
he decided to educate and help
other people deal with this issue.
Their presentation included
facts and statistics as they relate
to the college- aged student. It also
included how the virus is con-
tracted and ways it can be pre-
vented, basic things you need to
know about using condoms and a
seven minute video of college stu-
dents on spring break in Daytona
and their views on sex and drink-

Knowing that Spring Break
and warmer weather are right
around the corner, many students
may decide to begin person work-
out programs or enlist in the ser-
vices of a professional fitness pro-
gram. However, students should
take caution when deciding to pur-
chase a fitness club membership.
Kathy Murray, a recent ECU
graduate and ex-member of The
Club for Women Only (CFWO) lo-
cated at 140 Oakmont Drive, said
that if she had known in advance
the hassles she would have to en-
dure with the club, she would have
Murray said she became a mem-
ber of the fitness club in June of
1995 and had to cancel her mem-
bership early because she moved
out of Greenville in order to go
home and prepare for her wedding.
"That's when all the problems
started Murray said. "After I
graduated in May and moved back
home, I talked to the manager
about ending my membership.
There was a lot of things I had to
do before they would let me out of
Murray said she was given a list
of seven things she could do in or-
der to prove that she was no longer
a resident of Greenville in order to
forfeit her membership. The list in-
cluded providing copies of telephone
bills and mortgagerent statements
to certify having a new address.
"Since 1 was moving back in
with my parents and none of the
bills were going to be in my name,
none of the things on the list really
applied to me Murray said.
Murray said the following
month she noticed money was dis-
appearing from her checking ac-
count. The amounts she was miss-
ing corresponded with the $29
monthly membership fee she had
been paying to CFWO.
"I couldn't believe they were
taking money out of my account
Murray said, adding that in the be-
ginning she was told canceling her
membership would be easy, and she
should have no problems.
Later, Murray said she was told
CFWO would stop drafting money
from her account if she would get
her parents' address put on her
driver's license, so she did. For a
while, no more money disappeared
from her account.
"Then it happened again
Murray said. "They started taking
more money out. When I asked why,
they said it was because they found
out 1 was still working in Greenville.
"Apparently the contract also
said if I still worked in Greenville,
then my membership was still valid.
I thought about trying to sell the
remainder of the time on my mem-
bership, but I was told that (selling)
was not an option
Murray said she finally was al-
lowed to fully terminate her mem-
bership when she decided to quit her
job in Greenville.
"My boss wrote (the manager of
CFWO) a letter stating that I was
quitting my job because I didn't
want to commute from Winterville
anymore Murray said. "So now, in
January, they have finally stopped
drafting my account I hope
Murray said she probably will
not join another fitness club.
The owner of CFWO was not
available for comment, but Nick
Lembo, general manager of
Greenville Athletic Club GAC lo-
cated at 301 Plaza Drive, said he had
heard of membership termination
problems like the one Murray had
"A consumer reports bulletin 1
saw told of clubs making and break-
ing promises to members and coerc-
ing people to sign life-time member-
ship contracts that are virtually im-
possible to break Lembo said.
Lembo said, GAC members can
terminate their contracts for relo-
cation or medical reasons.
"We do have a member-transfer
policy Lembo said. "All a member
has to do is get another person to
take over the monthly payments.
There is no extra fee or heavy pa-
"We have one to two year mem-
bership contracts that we expect
people to commit to once they have
joined, but they can terminate for
various reasons Lembo said. "Af-
ter a member fulfills an agreement,
the membership can be canceled

Although North Carolina has a
good Samaritan law that protects well
intentioned volunteers, Baker said "this
is an added incentive
Any student enrolled at ECU can
volunteer through the ECU Student
Volunteer Program. All he or she must
do is contact Baker and decide from a
list of 56 organizations' descriptions,
where he or she might want to volun-
teer. Although some organizations need
full semester-length volunteers, others
need help with specific, short-term ac-
Croups such as fraternities, sorori-
ties, and clubs can also volunteer. Baker
said she can help groups find organiza-
tions that need volunteers during spe-
cific time frames or help plan and sched-
ule predetermined volunteer activities
that the groups intend to do.
Baker said some of the more popu-
lar organizations among the students
include the Boys and Girls Club, Shel-
ter for Battered Women, Ronald
McDonald House, Dream Factory,
P1CASO (support for AIDS victims) and
the American Red Cross.

We at TEC are
proud of our
athletes, but do
deserve all the
perks that came
We at TEC are the first to cheer our athletic teams onto
victory. We wholeheartedly support all the endeavors of all
Many of our staff members are both radio sportscasters
as well as sportswriters. These folks probably spend as much
time preparing for on-air broadcasts, writing and re-writing
stories, as some of our athletic teams spend practicing. We
will also concede that there's a certain amount of positive
school name recognition that goes along with successful ath-
letic programs. And most recently, seeing Othello Meadows'
last second winning shot showcased as ESPN's "Play of the
Day" made Pirate alumni from far and wide full of pride.
But we don't think athletes are any more important to
East Carolina than the rest of us.
Student-athletes get a few perks for being athletes. Some
athletes get more than others: athletic scholarships, use of
top-notch training facilities, registering early for classes, free
meal plans and missing all classes on the day of or before
Some may argue that since some teams practice twice a
day, they don't have time to go stand in line and register for
classes. Well some of us have jobs as well as classes. If stu-
dents who also work are scheduled to work during the days
of registration, would the administration let them register
ECU's athletes train with the best equipment on the mar-
ket today. Since our football and basketball teams earn most
of the athletic dollars, it seems only fair that they are pro-
vided such training equipment For us non-athletes, it means
waiting in lines for use of equipment, over-crowded condi-
tions and trying to shuffle work, classes and some type of
physical fitness program. But does winning a game or two
have to mean the physical fitness needs of the rest of the
student body must suffer?
We aren't taking a cheap, low blow at our athletes. But in
comparison to the athletes, the rest of us are treated like
second-class citizens by the administration. We suppose such
unfair measures are necessary to keep the best young ath-
letes from going to school elsewhere, but that doesn't make
it right The world outside of ECU isn' fair, it's a realm of
compromise. At a state supported university of higher learn-
ing, where the leaders of tomorrow are being bred, are these
unfair practices implemented by the university going to make
us better leaders or teach us that some are better than oth-
Dreams of success lost to reality
In my English class today, we dis-
cussed on-line today's secondary
schools. What the general consensus
came to, was that today's schools are
more of a ritualistic prison than any-
When a convicted criminal is sent
to prison, they are stripped of almost
all their rights and are told where to
go, when and how often. Does this
ring any bells? In high school, you
are stripped of almost all your rights
Mid told where to go, when and how
Perhaps, this was not the best
example of high schools, but I think
it proves my point High schools to-
day have little educational merit Most
of the students that are in these
schools are not there by choice. If they
had the choice, they would be off with
their friends shooting hoops or shoot-
ing something else.
So, for that matter, schools are
good. They try to keep kids out of
trouble. What the schools fall short
on is that schools should be more
geared towards education. That is
what they were founded for. Schools
weren't founded for soccer or football,
lacrosse or basketball. No, they were
founded to educate young minds and
try to prepare them for the REAL
Uh Oh, I said it. The REAL
WORLD. You know, that majestic
place you always here about but can
never seem to find. That nirvana that
is at the end of the rainbow, life, free-

Actually, I am speaking about the
chance to make something of your-
self, and be graded and judged based
upon your merits. Wait a minute, to
be graded and judged based upon my
merits, that would mean I would have
to be living in a open minded, caring,
non stereotypical society. As we all
know, we do not live in such a place.
So, if we live in a society that does
not care for the whole, but for itself,
and grades and judges a person on
their looks and the stereotype of what
kind of person they probably are - is
this the REAL WORLD we were prom-
We are meticulously crafted in
high school with these stereotypes of
groups of people. The best one of all,
is that all college students, especially
at ECU, sit around and drink. As I said,
that is a stereotype. ECU is a fine
university that has some excellent
programs and students.
But if we were judged based
solely on that stereotype, most people
would laugh in our faces and then
slam the door on us at job interviews.
This is a tame example of the stereo-
type being inbred in students today.
I remember back in high school
oh, a few years ago, stereotypes such
as this one were like God's own truth.
We were made to believe these were
truths. Of course, with some investi-
gation and experience, I have learned
Also, We were made all these
promises. For instance, one of which
is, when you get out in the REAL
WORLD, you can get these wonder-
ful jobs, because you have an educa-
tion. The emphasis was always on the
education. Well, perhaps 20 - 30 years
ago I could have. What kind of an
education is represented by a high
school diploma? Today a high school
diploma won't even get my foot in the
door at Taco Bell.
High schools are a glorified
prison. All students are prisoners with
a social security number instead of
an inmate number - same difference.
The warden is the principal and the
screws are the narcs and security
guards, who nowadays have to use
metal detectors to determine if a stu-
dent is safe to enter the school.
So the mirage that the wonder-
ful education I received in high school
has faded away, so the next step is to
go to college. Of course in today's
society, my foot in the door means,
OK, they will call me back perhaps in
a few days! Yeah, sure, right!

Candidate's plans fall flat
There once was a rather eccentric
man named Malcolm Forbes. He found
joy in riding motorcycles, collecting toy
soldiers and Faberge eggs, and owned
a castle in Morocco. He twice decided
to run for governor of New Jersey. He
had a son named Steve, and Steve has
decided to do his father one better.
Steve Forbes is more than just his
father's son. He is a successful busi-
ness man as well. He runs his father's
business and runs it well. He is in
charge of 10 magazines (one of which
is the family namesake, Forbes Maga-
zine) and about 14 newspapers. He is
also running for President of the
United States of America. His ticket
to ride is the flat tax and the train is
He doesn't care that his critics say
the flat tax will only help other wealthy
individuals like himself, he believes in
it because it is fair to everyone.
It would exempt the first $36,000
of income for families with two par-
ents and two kids. This plan would then
take all income above that line and tax
it by 17 percent It is a good idea that
would do a great job of ensuing that
everyone pays their dues equally.
Two questions arise, will it work
and can he get to the White House
with it? The second question is more
appropriate to answer first
Steve Forbes has never held po-
litical office before. He is financing
most of his own expenses and what he
has raised has been through
fundraising dinners (to say nothing of
the fact that they are at $1,000 a plate.)

Letters to the Editor
To the Editor,
At the beginning of last Fall se-
mester, the ECU School of Business
was given the opportunity to expand
its international image by allowing or-
ganizations within the business
school to develop international rela-
tions between domestic students and
international students. One of the
primary reasons for the internation-
alization was to foster interest for an
international business curriculum at
the graduate level, which will be the
only program of this nature in North
As many business organizations
worked proficiently in the interna-
tional arena, the idea of the sought
after curriculum started to become
clearer until an imposing school
stepped in the way to hinder progress.
As soon as our sister school, UNC

Chapel Hill, received a notion of what
was happening, they decided to try
to rob ECU of its work by stating they
deserve the right to have this program

UNC and ECU both have out-
standing business schools which meet
the same accreditations, but the main
differences are represented in the cur-
nculums each school offers. For ex-
ample, ECU is home to two of the most
renowned award winning business or-
ganizations in America, the ECU Chap-
ter of the American Marketing Asso-
ciation (AMA) and the Society for the
Advancement of Management (SAM).
I know from a personal experience that
the AMA has helped to achieve an in-
ternational image by appointing an
executive position for international
affairs to represent ECU in North Caro-
lina and at the International Collegiate
Marketing Conference in New Orleans.
On the other hand, UNC Chapel
Hill will not be represented in New
Orleans due to THE FACT that they
do not even have an AMA chapter, be-
cause they lack the diversity of mar-
keting courses, don't have�nough stu-
dent interest and lack of experience of

vincing lead he doesn't need to. With
the other contenders trying to get
ahead, they'll be more than happy to
bash him. So far the only seed that
Dole has planted is that Forbes is in-
experienced and untested as a leader.
The main issue is will the flat tax
work? The American people seem to

take trip to Knoxville
How about bowling? A friendly
game of table tennis, perhaps? Or, for
the less active, spades or chess?
All of these games are part of the
annual Associated College Unions In-
ternational (ACUI) tournament Spon-
sored by the ECU Student Union, this
tournament is held in January each year
and the winners receive an all-expenses
paid trip to the regional competition in
Knoxville, TN at the end of February.
The winners of the regional competi-
tion will go to the nationals, a trip which
is also all expenses paid.
This year the competition was held
January 16-25. Prom those who partici-
pated, ECU is sending 23 students to
the regionals in Knoxville. They will
jcompete against students fom North
�Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Ken-
tucky and Tennessee.
In the billiards tournament Tommy
Lawrence, Jamie AUred and Maria Rocas
will represent ECU. Scott Smith, Jerry
Wilkins, Neil Dickinson and Corey
Algood make up the men's bowling
team The women's bowling team in-
cludes Cristie Phillips, H'Lee Moua,
Angela Adams and Stephanie Jones.
For the spades competition, ECU
is sending two teams of two players: Eric
Norris and Alex Paul on the first team
and Donald Yohn and Michael Brown
on the second team. In the chess tour-
nament John Wooten, Jr. will compete.
ECU is also sending Trung H.
Nguyen, James Gray and Thanh Pham
to compete in the table tennis tourna-
ment and Robb Cavanaugh, Robert
Joyner, Chandre Speight and Martin
Thomas as the College Bowl Team.
How does one get involved in the
tournament? Believe it or not you sim-
ply sign up. The Student Union adver-
tises the tournament for several weeks,
and interested participants return a reg-
istration form with a fee of $2 per event
The rules are set by the ACU-i direc-
tors, but are little different from normal
tournament rules. This ensures .that all
contestants are following the same for-
mat The games are double elimination,
which means that a contestant must lose
twice before being removed from the
For every eight people who partici-
pate, the Student Union can send one
person to the regionals. The limitations
exist only in the number of people who
participate Despite the low registration
fee and the outstanding prizes, the turn-
out for these games has been consifr
tentry less than anticipated.
"All we need is more participants,
and we can send more people to the
regionals said Mark Carroll, a repre-
sentative of the Student Union.
If you missed the competition this
year, don't kick yourself yet This is an
annual event and the competition will
be even better next year. Watch for ad-
vertisements in The East Carolinian
and around campus next January. And
with a whole year to practice, maybe
you'll be in Knoxville in '97!

Dreyfus gives musical
performance in Opus
Teachers often make some of the
best heroes in dramatic stories. A
teacher can bring out the best in stu-
dents, which touches chords deep in
every human psyche because at the
heart of every being is a desire to
make a difference in this world. Teach-
ers have the opportunity to make a
difference every day of their life.
In Mr. Holland's Opus, a new film
about a teacher, the hero of the film
proves that teaching can be one of
the most rewarding professions imag-
inable. Glen Holland (Richard Dreyfus)
gets into the teaching "gig as he calls
it only because he has been unable
to make a living as a musician. Unsat-
isfied with playing Ramada Inns for
the rest of his life, Glen becomes a
music teacher at John F. Kennedy
Films about teachers succeed
most when they concentrate on the
strengths of the teacher. In Mr.
Hollands Opus, much film time con-
centrates on the interactions Glen
Holland has with his students. Glen
tries patiently to get a shy,
underconfident clarinet player to have
enough faith in herself that she can
have tun playing an instrument
Glen works diligently with a foot-
ball player who has been kicked off
the team because of poor grades. The
athlete leams how to find a beat and
plays a great bass drum.
Glen helps a singer in a musical
understand what the song "Someone
to Watch Over Me" really means,
which helps her to find her voice while
The scenes of one-on-one student
contact complement the scenes of
Glen trying to teach his class music
appreciation or practicing with the
orchestra. In his music appreciation
class, Glen plays rock and roll on his
piano to get the students involved in
the discussion and to show the differ-
ences between scales.
When Mr. Holland's Opus fo-
cuses on Glen's teaching, the film
soars. But it bogs down every time
scenes occur at home. Glen's wife (ably
played by Glenn Headley) tries to give
support, but finds that she needs sup-
port herself when they have a son who
is deaf. Glen spends more time with
his kids at school than he does with
his son, which causes tension at home.
Though the scenes at home give
added meaning to Glen's life, the time
they take away from the cassroom
scenes cannot be justified. The class-
room is where the heart of the story
lies, and it is there that the filmmak-
ers should have focused their atten-
Richard Dreyfus does a great job
in the title role. He plays a perfectly
imperfect human being struggling to
find some meaning in his life. Through
music Glen is able to appreciate the
beauty and wonder of life. The most
wonderful aspect of teaching is being
able to share with students the love
of a subject When students feel as
deeply and positive about a subject
as the teacher, then the teacher has
accomplished the task of educating

For some odd reason there
has been a lot of sports bash-

say that those are not the views
of myself or anyone else on the
I know there are people out
there that don't have a clue
about anything that goes on in
the sports world. There is ab-
solutely nothing wrong with
that. Different people enjoy dif-
Sports have always been a
part of my life since the day I
could walk. That is just how I
was raised. But 1 don't criticize
those who don't make sports a
part of their life, therefore I
don't expect anyone to put me
down because I have made it a
part of mine.
Some will say that athletes
get special perks just because
of who they are. Well I believe
athletes are special because
they possess certain qualities
that not everybody has. It takes
a lot of talent to play a sport
and be the best in that sport.
It has also come to my at-
tention that the fans who sup-
port athletics are being criti-
cized. Come on! If fans aren't
important to the game, I
wouldn't have spent all football
season pleading with the fans
to come and support the foot-
ball team during all four quar-
Fans are a vital part of the
sporting world. Hey, if it wasn't
for the fans, we wouldn't have
sports, period. Take it from me,
playing somewhere where there
aren't a lot of fans is not fun.
That is what usually happens in
girls' athletics in high school.
It seems like there is nothing
to motivate you, and you feel
like nobody cares.
The taunting and teasing
done by these faithfuls is what
makes the. atmosphere much
more enjoyable. Players and
coaches don't seem to mind be-
cause they know that is just a
part of the territory that goes
i along with athletics. Take away
the fans, and there isn't much
For example, during the
Roosevelt Presidency, despite
the crisis the country was go-
ing through, at that time,
sports were still highly thought
of. Roosevelt canceled baseball
for a year, but quickly brought
it back because he thought it
boosted the morale of the coun-
try. It was an activity people
could enjoy, and it allowed
them to not think of the war
for a few hours.
I know in many instances
it is sports that draw people to-
gether. That is evident by the
fact that 13� million viewers
watched the Super Bowl this
past Sunday. And who says
sports aren't important?
College athletics offers
more opportunities for student
athletes than people will care
to admit. Many athletes receive
athletic scholarships, which not
only allow them to play sports
in college, but it also gives them
an education. I have found that
most athletes know that an edu-
cation is what they are here for
first. Many realize only a few
make it in the pro's.
I am tired of people putting
down sports and everything
they stand for. If it weren't for
sports, I don't know what kind
of future I would have in
sportscasting. Needless to say,

With the recent success, as well as the
Pirates quest for one of their best sea-
sons ever in the conference, the Eagles
will have quite a chore staring them
in the face.
At 8-9 overall and 44 in the con-
ference, Knoche and company haven't
exactly put together a banner year so
far. After starting out with an impres-
sive 4-1 in the conference, the Eagles
have dropped their last three confer-
ence games, which included a 20 point
shellacking at the hands of Old Do-
minion Monday night. 67-47.
The hot start was a major turn-
around from last season, when AU
began with an abysmal 0-11 record.
The downfall was due to a season-end-
ing injury to 1993-94 first-team mem-
ber, center Tim Fudd. The Eagles
eventually regrouped by mid-season,
winning seven of its final 11 games
which included a first round upset of
ECU in the CAA tournament.

If you've been in Greenville for a
while, you're probably aware of the
winning ways of the ECU baseball
program. Headed by coach Gary
Overton, the Pirates have always been
a perennial power in the always solid
CAA baseball conference, but hard
times fell on the Bucs last year.
Winning five of the past nine
CAA championships. Overton's ball
clubs always have come with built-in
high expectations. Just squeaking out
a winning season at 29-26, and finish-
ing only fifth in last year's final CAA
standings, is not what Pirate baseball
fans are use to.
"Last year I felt was a disappoint-
ing year said Overton. "Many blamed
our youth as the biggest problem, I
disagree. I feel that we did not play to
Youth might not have been the
problem, but to say that the Bucs were
young last season would be a vast
understatement If one looks down the
1996 Pirate roster, they would find
ten sophomores, six juniors and only
six seniors. Despite the youth of last
year's club, it was a talented group
capable of more than a 29-26 mark. ;
"We did not have an outstanding ;
season, which we're accustomed to ;
here at East Carolina said Overton. !
"We had expectations and we simply
did not live up to them last season
In '95. the Bucs had everything, ;
but a normal ECU season. Last year, J
despite solid pitching efforts, the Pi-
rates received an early exit in the CAA
tourney, while Old Dominion took the
prize the Bucs are use to receiving
the CAA championship. This coveted
honor gave the Monarchs the right
to go to the NCAA tournament.

Monday night. The Pirates were on the road against William & Mary and won
the contest 71-65.
This was an especially needed win because the last two out of three
conference road games, the Pirates did not come away with a victory. Their
last road trip, before the William & Mary trip, was up to American where they
lost 75-85 and before that they suffered their first CAA loss to George Mason

Tim Basham and Tony Parham each contributing 10 points apiece.
ECU shot 36.8 percent for the game while the Tribe only shot 32.2 per-

mented. "Although we had some fine
pitching efforts, the depth of the staff
fremely weak or thin as one
may say. That was of course not
helped by key injuries last season
On more than one occasion last
season, the Pirates would drop close
games in the final innings, due to
lack of depth as well as lack of offen-
sive production. This caused major
problems for the Pirates in the win-
I iss column, especially in the CAA
As everybody knows, tourna-

they'll be able to contribute to the

hopes for his new players added
Overton. "In our recruiting, we rec-

brought in a group of freshmen that
we felt could complement the talent
we already have, which we hope will
make us a more balanced team
Balance is the key. When a team
is in a highly rated conference such
as the CAA, each team must be pre-
pared to face superstars. Everybody
knows that a team's superstar cast
will produce game in and game out,
but it is often the steady players' per-
formances that is the difference.
"I feel this is a very balanced
team, and I say balanced, meaning
that there is depth in the pitching
staff and there is no real lull in our
line-up said Overton.

the Pirates from third to fifth in
their pre-season polls. This season

you need athletics to have sports-
casters and 1 can't think of any-
thing else 1 would rather do.
Sports are an outlet for people
to enjoy themselves and to show-
case their talent. They bring people
together and it's just good old fash-
ion fun. Last time 1 checked, there
was no harm in that.
Even Presidents of the United
States have thought athletes and
athletics are important because of-
ten top winning teams and top ath-
letes are invited to the White
House. Personally, 1 think that says
a lot by itself.
In closing, I am here to say
sports are not meaningless and
they are just as important as any-
thing else that goei on in the world.
If they weren't as important, then
there wouldn't be sports pages,
sports magazines, ESPNetc.
So it still seems meaningless?
