I am a sports fan.
I love all kinds of sports, but basketball is my favorite. So much so, I even got the NBA League Pass this year. Despite what people think, basketball is a contact sport. The players are big, strong and physical. The competition is tough and intense.
However, in watching a lot of NBA games, I noticed an interesting situation. Once the game is over, players from opposing teams will hug each other and almost instantly forget the game they just played (for the most part). The outcome is accepted, and there is a show of good sportsmanship.
There is another game that I also follow closely, the one played on Capitol Hill. It is the game of politics. In the past, the politicians on Capitol Hill were portrayed as civilized and well-mannered.
